Long’s Axioms of Higher Education

Jump to Comments

With commencement exercises finished this weekend, it’s time for Long’s Axioms of Higher Education.

Axiom No. 1: Graduate school prepares you for . . . graduate school.

Axiom No. 2: A student’s concern about how he or she is performing in the course is usually inversely proportional to the student’s need to be concerned.

Axiom No. 3: Students and faculty are more similar than dissimilar. Both continuously perform cost/benefit analyses. Neither read and follow instructions; neither turn things in on time.

Axiom No. 4: Students, dear professor, are just not that into you. You might surprised how many of them can’t even remember your name.
