In 1999, at the beginning of the fall semester, Laude combed through the records of every student in his freshman chemistry class and identified about 50 who possessed at least two of the “adversity indicators” common among students who failed the course in the past: low SATs, low family income, less-educated parents.

Who Gets to Graduate?

He invited them all to apply to a new program, which he would later give the august-sounding name the Texas Interdisciplinary Plan, or TIP. Students in TIP were placed in their own, smaller section of Chemistry 301, taught by Laude. But rather than dumb down the curriculum for them, Laude insisted that they master exactly the same challenging material as the students in his larger section. In fact, he scheduled his two sections back to back. “I taught my 500-student chemistry class, and then I walked upstairs and I taught this 50-student chemistry class,” Laude explained.

Fixing The Freshman Year: Here's What College Sophomores Say : NPR Ed

What wasn't friendly: her bill, and the big number on it. Ever since her freshman year, she says, her biggest struggle in college has been figuring out how to pay for it. It's a problem that colleges might want to pay more attention to. At least that's what a lot of sophomores told us. When news came out that 44 schools are setting out to revamp their approach for low-income freshmen in that crucial first year, we asked some students who've just lived through it what they would fix.

The relevance, cost and value of a college education have been hot topics lately on various media platforms. The discussion often seems to be just an exchange of point-counterpoint broadsides among proponents and opponents of a liberal-arts education. As president of a liberal-arts college, I won’t pretend to be neutral.

I have benefited from, and believe in, studying the distinctive blend of the humanities, science and the arts that is the essence of a liberal-arts education. In fact, I recently wrote a letter to the editor of The New York Times defending the humanities as part of a well-rounded education. I believe a liberal-arts education is the best preparation a young person can have for success in life. David Carr’s Syllabus — Creativity _ Unbound.
