University as a total immersive learning environment. “When a multitude of young men, keen, open-hearted… come together and freely mix with each other, they are sure to learn one from another…. “ "If I had to choose between a so-called University which dispensed with residenceand tutorial supervision and gave its degrees to any person who passed an examination in a wide range of subjects, and a University which merely brought a number of young men together for three orfour years… I have no hesitation in givingthe preference to the later…“ From "The Idea of a University", Cardinal Newman.
