143. Sal and Jacob Choose St. Thomas Aquinas, a College with Only One Major

June 20, 2023

Not too many people choose a college with only one major, with under 500 students, nestled outside of the city in a natural setting. But Sal and Jacob, cousins, each 18, chose this unusual institution based on the Great Books, and which uses the Socratic Method of instruction (which is where the professors grill you every class to see what you know). In this episode, we discuss why they're going to St. Thomas Aquinas. We also discuss their biographies, and what they hope to make of their unique, precious lives.
