Liberal Arts Education: Why It Still Matters
by Janet Morgan Riggs, President of Gettysburg College
How will studying Shakespeare or cell biology or modern art help me get a job?
The most straight forward answer is liberal arts colleges, at their best, provide en exceptionally effective learning environment
for developing the kind of intellectual power and propensity for action that the world needs to tackle the daunting challenges we face.
A critical reading of the great works of Western and nonwestern traditions can help clarify our own ideas and values and better
understand the perspectives of others.
Studying science provides practice in testing hypotheses and analyzing data. Studying the arts and appreciation for the richness and
endless diversity of human imagination.
The point is that it is not so much the specific content of our courses that is at the core of the liberal arts experience, rather the value is
in a way of learning. We ask students to digest and comprehend huge quantities of data, evaluate sources, communicate findings,
analyze and synthesize ideas and draw and defend conclusions. Many CEOs are looking for employees with the attributes that a
liberal arts education instills: critical thinking, clear communication, collaboration, an appreciation for diverse points of view, the
ability to approach a problem from multiple perspectives, ethical judgment and lifelong learning skills. These habits of mind have
enduring value at a time when labor specialists tell us that 70 percent of the jobs that will be in demand in the next few decades do not
even exist now. Of course we have an obligation to help our students find a way to translate what they have learned into a potential
career direction. Career service departments have become increasingly sophisticated in helping students identify potential matches
between their skills and their interests. Internships, job-shadowing experiences and networking opportunities help students bridge the
transition between school and work. Liberal arts colleges are leaders in providing opportunities for students to experience life beyond
the boundaries of campus. During the last spring break , for example, Gettysburg College students explored middle school education
in urban Baltimore, honed their leadership skills in Arizona’s rugged Dragoon Mountains and learned firsthand about life in Leone,
Nicaragua. During economic crisis , the temptation t look for an immediate return on an educational investment is strong, but
shortsighted. Future leaders in education science, law, business And medicine and public service will be those who will think clearly
and creatively, challenge conventional thinking, understand the global context and feel a responsibility to use their education for the
greater good.

An Act Which Elicits A Thank You….
Danzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center                   Source: Internet,
  Don’t know whether you heard about this but Danzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center,
San Antonio, Texas (BAMC) recently. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the
United States, especially burn victims. There are some buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a hotel where
soldiers’ families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time.
  While Danzel was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build.
He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot.
  The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their
hearts to hear it.
  It warms my heart and the thought comes to mind that this would be a terrific outlet for American school students to support.

Interview Blunders
  Rude Behavior -- arrive on time -- don’t interrupt the interviewer -- be sure to fill out the job application
                Put your best foot forward in all face to face meetings where decisions are going to effect your future.
 Arrogant/Pushy Behavior -- extend total attention to the interviewer -- disconnect cell phone -- salary not the most important topic
                Treat people as you would like to be treated in a similar circumstance. Humility is a recognizable virtue.
 Telling White Lies -- never lie on Resume, Application Always, Always, tell the truth
                Truth will always be your most eloquent statement and is always appreciated. It can only help your cause.
 Dressing Too Casually -- cover up the tattoos and dress for the occasion
                 The interview is not a social affair. It is you on display, being judged in a competitive atmosphere.
