Opinions: Benefits of liberal arts education found outside bank account

BILL: I was recently at a University-sponsored event that drew a considerable number of parents. My parents didn't even come to my chorus concerts when I was in elementary school, so it comes as no surprise that they frankly don't give a damn about my extracurricular activities now that I'm 20.

On the Runway: The New Black
A pair of leggings can divide opinions as much as any political debate. For every girl that absolutely loves sporting the calf-hugging cutoffs under her miniskirt, there's another girl that is scowling at the pair in confusion.
