STUDENTS in universities and colleges are there for many reasons. To get an education in its broadest sense is too often not chief among these reasons. Sometimes it is possible to determine the purpose a student has for being in college in a matter of minutes, and in other cases, close association with the student must be maintained over a long period of time before it is possible to determine what his aims and expectations are with relation to his college life. Often students are not certain within their own minds just what reasons they have for being in school. All students, however, may be classified according to their reasons, either realized or unrealized, for being in an institution of higher education. These classes are the academic student, the athletic student, the political student, the practical student, the play boy student and the loafer student.
