“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.

  • An old college tradition that is in danger of passing away.
  • Does this generation want to maintain it?
