High School Students Introduced to Liberal Arts at Univ. of Dallas

Thirty-one high school students from across the country gathered at the University of Dallas for a two week introduction to a liberal arts education, which culminated in a paper presentation.

The “Arete” program consisted of lectures, seminars and activities, such as the students’ own version of the Greek Olympics.

Louise Cowan, Chair of the Literature department, directed the program:

“The two main elements of a noble life are seeing truly and acting rightly. This process has formed the basis of liberal education and constitutes the foundation on which civilization rests… In introducing young students to the essential texts of Western Civilization and spurring them to reflect on works of fine art and film, Arete offers a taste of how education frees us.”

The University of Dallas is recommended by the Newman Society in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
