A Word From...

Kenneth Alexo Jr.
Vice President for University Advancement

It's a joke I often hear when I tell people I work at Drew University. The standard version goes something like this: "An engineer looks at an idea and asks, 'How does it work?' An accountant looks at it and asks, 'How much does it cost?' And a liberal arts graduate looks at the same idea and asks, 'You want fries with that?'"

My initial reaction to this hackneyed criticism of the liberal arts is to take pity on my interlocutors; they have obviously not had the advantage of the very education they feebly seek to denigrate. And then the teacher in me--or, what is essentially the same thing, the fundraiser--takes over. This is one of those perfect teaching moments, I tell myself, and I embrace the opportunity to show these tired, oh-so-astute critics of the liberal arts the error of their ways.
