“We educate students in the spirit of our motto, ‘Liberty and Responsibility.’ This means to endow the alumnus with the tools to do all that he desires without surrendering to limitations or waiting for the authorities to do it for him – but to do so in a way that clearly demonstrates responsibility for his surroundings and the willingness to act within them.”
