Big Picture

Many students are more concerned with grades than with what they did or did not learn.

Some students think that teachers should give them an education rather than realizing that they must earn it. Education is not a gift. Learning comes through dedication and hard work.

Learning is not always fun; at times it can be frustrating and painful.

Whenever presented with a new problem, the first thing students do is to forget everything they have learned up to that point.

In education, doing is more important than hearing or telling about it.

Learning is not an automatic response to teaching.

Basic Design is a time bomb that goes off about five years after graduation. (Comment by an alumnus.)

To receive a diploma and to be educated are not one and the same—you can have either without having the other.
