Another Vote for Wide-Open Education

My young friend Del offers a post today praising Joe Paterno and the Penn State football team after their victory in the Orange Bowl Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

Del is a Penn State alumnus who fondly recalls a chance meeting with the great, but humble, coach one day while an undergraduate. Del explains that he was, at the time, uncertain of what major to pursue. Joe Paterno's advice seems to have stayed with him:
"Well, if you can do it, keep looking at all your options and don't just settle. You'll learn a lot of things here, but the most important will be who you are. And from there you know exactly what you want to do."
Amen.

Life is always changing. Learn all you can. Learn how to learn. Enjoy the changes, because they aren't going to stop happening.
