Libby Snowden ’24 and Will Wang ’26 return to reflect on the alarming results of the Buckley Institute’s Ninth Annual College Student Survey:

Libby Snowden: “If your response to hearing something that you disagree with or something that you find offensive is, ‘I’m gonna go tell the teacher,’ you’re still in the kiddie pool.”

Will Wang: “We make up most of Yale. We make up most of elite institutions. And because we’re complacent in our current environment, we don’t have to do any reaching out. We don’t have to listen to ideas that differ from ours. But that isn’t supposed to be the point of an education. It’s supposed to challenge you.”

University of Chicago Department of Physical Sciences Associate Professor Dorian Abbot talks speaking out about fairness in the university admissions process and the cancellation of a science lecture at MIT.
