- Core courses create 'intellectuals' (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
Late in the summer of 1999, I drove to the post office in the afternoon to pick up the mail. That day yielded yet another letter from the University, a sight I had become accustomed to. This time it was from the school of Arts and Letters, my highly respected college. Little did I know I had been waiting for this letter all my life, for it would truly mark a turning point. I got home thinking nothing of the letter as I had received much of the same throughout the summer months. After an hour or two, I decided I should probably look at what I was going to throw away. I opened the letter and saw the Core. The previous spring I had DARTed into this class, as it was required by my college. All I had heard about it was that it was a lot of reading and writing, and I figured I could deal with that. I just figured the material was whatever the particular teacher chose to teach. However, what this letter told me was beyond my wildest dreams. It had finally happened — I was to become an Intellectual.
