ACQUIRE SELF ASSURANCE
What does one gain at college? The
PRESS question is frequently asked, and the
answers are varied because of the
sively entitled many advantages resulting from a col-

looms large-the acquisition of self-

Many students enter college without
faith in themselves or their abilities.
Though the responsibility lies largely
with the individual, the college must
endeavor to see they do not leave in
the same condition. In the classroom'
where recitation and discussion is
largely voluntary, many students- fail
to give any contribution to the
thought, because 'they do not have
sufficient confidence in their knowl-
edge and views. On the basis of an
honest study of the subject, however,
a student should be willing to express
himself. The results of having ex-
pressed himself a few Times are cumi-
lative, and soon it no longer requirds
an effort. The student has then at-
tained some degree of self-assurance.
In the social life offered by a col-
lege a student meets people of every'
type. With the confidence born of this'
experience he becomes a judge of hu-
man values, and is able to pass keen
judgments on character.
In short, the college aims to train
a man to have confidence in himself,
and to fail to acquire self-assurance'
is to fail to receive one of the lasting
benefits of a college education. -
