University Of Chicago Sends The Acceptance Letter Every College Should

Exactly one university in America has actually decided to provide education to its students

Bravo to the University of Chicago for this acceptance form letter:

"You will find that we expect members of our community to be engaged in rigorous debate, discussion, and even disagreement. At times this may challenge you and even cause discomfort. Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own."

Here's my handy guideline to the value of a college education. If you graduate from college unchallenged, possessing the same opinions you went in with, you have wasted four years of your life and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
