“College as America used to understand it is coming to an end.”
In the turbulent late ’60s and early ’70s, college campuses played a major role in the culture and politics of the era.

Is the college experience less critical to the nation than it was a generation ago? Join the debate. For more info: NYT College Essay Contest
