Letter to the Editor

Learn by thinking

San Luis ObispoFebruary 12, 2014 

With some amusement, I’ve followed the dialogue about Cal Poly’s “branding.” In the Feb. 5 Tribune, alas, we find that some students have not thoroughly studied “The Mustang Way.” Instead , they misbehaved at a Cal Poly concert, got arrested, went to the hospital, etc.

“Learn by Doing”? Perhaps “Learn by Thinking” should be considered (which is what my friends in the liberal arts and I suggested years ago). I retired after 31 years of a lovely career.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
