b'THE STUDENT WHO IS CONSIDERING GRADUATE SCHOOL Sometimes you will meet with a student who has discovered a passion for, say, biology. She is a sophomore and has decided that research in biology is her future and that means she must go to graduate school. Or you will meet with a student who finds that he cannot read enough Moliere, nor can he read enough about Moliere. Hence, graduate studies in French literature are all that he can imagine doing. It is wonderful when students discover a passion for intellectual work. And we should encourage such passion as much as we can. For the student considering graduate school, refer them to your institutions career services office to get information about various paths toward graduate work. The student considering graduate school can sometimes present challenges. For instance, a neophyte biologist will perhaps wonder why, since she knows that she is going to graduate school in biology, she needs to take courses outside her interests to meet the colleges requirements. Similarly, a French lit ephebe may put off fulfilling pesky requirements that he feels are useless to him. In other words, these focused students are willing to sacrifice the breadth that is the hallmark of a liberal arts education for the narrow allure of a specialty. It is recommended that you steer these students toward your colleges academic advising office. You can help by demonstrating to the students your own dedication to the broad education a world-class universityAcademic Concerns105'
