There were two very different types of students in this group. First, there were the future attorneys. Serious-minded students who knew exactly where they were going and had their grad schools picked out. And secondly, there were the rest of us-- drifting humanities-liberal arts-look-out-the-window daydreamers. I have mentioned I was not the world's greatest student, haven't I?
Here's how I was able to identify who was who among my fellow pupils. We attended a guest lecture by faculty member Alan Nasser. I think the topic was "logical thinking" or something like that. Anyway, he opened up the talk with the statement, "By the time I am through with you, your minds will become steel traps!"
And all the drifting humanities-liberal arts-look-out-the-window daydreamers slapped their palms on the tops of their craniums and in unison yelled out, "Noooooooooooo!!!"
