Upcoming Lecture at University of St. Katherine

10.14.2017 / Classical education

Join me at the University of St. Katherine on Monday, 7:30pm, where I’ll be speaking to the students about classical education as a form of initiation into a life of virtue and the pursuit of wisdom.

This is an extra special visit for me, since the last time I visited St Katherine it was just “St. Katherine College” and Lindsay was on the admissions team. I’m glad to see the work God has done growing and building the school.

One thing that was hard to discover, perhaps understandably, was the expected “stipend” of graduate teaching assistants at other universities I applied to. For what it’s worth, I saved the information about our stipend. My department preferred that it not be public. But count your lucky stars you aren’t as poor as I was in 2012.
