There has been a lot debate recently about the value and purpose of college. Should college train students for a particular career? Or should colleges foster learning within the liberal arts tradition to help students become educated citizens? The Honors Program at Fredonia is designed to provide students with a strong general education that builds on their work within the major. As you think about your own expectations for college, what do you think about these debates and the purpose of higher education? To help answer this question, please consult the following short articles.
