When Henry Mulcahy, a middle-aged instructor of literature at Jocelyn college, Jocelyn, Pennsylvania, unfolded the President's letter and became aware of its contents, he gave a sudden sharp cry of impatience and irritation, as if such interruptions could positively be brooked no longer.mary mccarthy
You don't have to go to college to be a success ... We need the people who run the offices, the people who do the hard physical work of our society.

In my judgment the college fraternity has been of inestimable value in making men across the years... It is natural for men to come together in compatible, mutual friendship, and when they do so under the high ideals of a fraternity, it proves to be most beneficial.
The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think.
Dale: I work at a college as a janitor even though I feel like I'm smarter than most of the people who go there. Sometimes I see an equation written on a blackboard, like half an equation and... I just figure it out.
