For the Freshmen

Today’s Boston Globe has a series of Op-Eds aimed at the college freshmen who inundate the greater Boston metropolitan area by the tens of thousands every fall.

On adjusting to life at Harvard, and how even the super-smart are sometimes lacking in common sense.

On the perils of admitting to a drug conviction on your application for Federal student aid.

On the perils of student credit cards.

And, on academic freedom. One wonders if David Horowitz has deplored the application of Hazelwood vs. Kuhlmeier to public university campus newspapers? Oh wait, that’s right–Horowitz likes limitations on free speech, so long as his own ideology is protected. (I had my own run-ins with Hazelwood in high school and would happily see it go at thatl level as well.)
