Back To School - Walter Russell Mead's Blog - The American Interest:
And so, dear students, welcome back! Your generation is going to have dig its own way out of the hole my generation has dug for you (thanks for the Medicare, kids, and sorry about the deficit!), but here are a few tips that may help you get the best out of your college years.


I would quibble with only one thing here. Professor Mead suggests a true liberal arts education, but one can learn these things outside the groves of academe, probably for less money and certainly with less aggravation. If you must go to college for four years, study something like engineering or accounting, if you can. Because while it's not all about money, it sure does make life easier.
