plan and compose an organized academic essay that responds to the following question:
What is the purpose of college and what key quality or qualities must a student possess to achieve that purpose? How does that purpose compare to John Howard Harris’ argument about the purpose of college?
“The ideal college student is he who attains the purpose of college education. That purpose is character…. character is will. Knowledge and mental efficiency are instrumental to will. Will is the centre and substance of personality. The ideal college student develops will. This development involves energy and direction.”
– John Howard Harris, President of Bucknell College, 1898
