The beginning of all wisdom

Earlham Scene: Nathan Rivas ‘23 writes in his journal while sitting in the ancient Theatre of Assos along the Aegean Coast in Turkey last summer. He was one of nine students who accompanied Ferit Güven, professor of philosophy, for a three-week course titled Wondering and Wandering. During the course, which Güven has led four times, students travel to various sites in Turkey and discuss philosophy. Funding for Rivas’ trip was made possible by the Epic Advantage, Earlham’s offer of a funded internship, research or other career discerning experience to each student. “The trip was totally life-changing. It changed the way that I thought, and I really, really appreciate that,” said Rivas, a creative writing major from California. “The experience challenged the way that I thought about things and gave me a different sense of direction for my writing. It made me much more interested in figuring out the basics of life.

Last Word: Any good advice?

We asked Earlhamites to recall some of the best advice they’ve been given.
