Cynthia Huggins | Posted 01.23.2014 | College
Cynthia Huggins

A college education should also impress on students the importance -- the absolute necessity -- of a meaningful life in which they get to define success for themselves. Learn to play the clarinet. Read a Brontë novel. Coach a basketball team. Or just spend an hour walking a dog.

Happiness, I have found, is like a fruity, sweet mimosa- - soft, pleasant and fun, but somewhat flimsy. A joyposeful life, on the other hand, is like a heady, thick cabernet or smooth, aged bourbon -- impactful, multidimensional, complex and substantial.
