Critical thoughts

Judy (Wait) McCallister (’62)

Why choose a liberal arts college? The answer is multifaceted, but we eventually come to know it was to learn how to think clearly and critically. Archways magazine is full of exciting and vibrant information about the campus, students and faculty. The theme behind all of the articles and features is the celebration of the liberal arts education at Nebraska Wesleyan.

Archways is a way for alumni to keep in touch and read about one another’s life events. Please do not turn my alumni magazine into a political forum, especially one where the critical thinking skills we learned at NWU are ignored. If the editor chooses to open up discussions of political thought, please use fact-based, rationally framed opinions that invite different points of view. That is what I learned was the essence of clear and critical thinking.
