Brad ponders if university should be a time for fun or a time for rigorous studying.
A talk now about university being should it be hard or should it be easy.
I guess I would come down on the side of university should be hard. You know, university is sort of a training ground for the future. It's training future leaders, it's training people who, hopefully, are going to go out into society and help shape society. They're going to lead other people and for that reason we need them to be at their very best. We need people like that to be able to think critically and analyze the world and that's what university needs to teach. Those things aren't easy. It's takes discipline and rigor to really learn how to do that. So for the sake of society and for the sake of people who are going to be led in the future, we need to make sure that, that the people who come out of university are ready and able to do that. Thank you very much.
