In Response to: Higher Educating

It made me smile to read “Higher Educating” in the November issue.

The engineering school’s new freshman curriculum was long past due to fix the major retention issue. Fifty-plus years ago, I switched out of engineering into philosophy sophomore year for the same reasons mentioned in the article, thinking “What’s the point? ... Is that all there is?”

Ironically, after Princeton, I spent the next four decades doing systems engineering in the tech field.
