The value of a university for educational purposes lies not principally in its examination, not even wholly in its teaching, however, admirable that teaching may be. It lies, and must lie, in the collision of minds between student and student. We learn at all times of life, but perhaps most when we are young much from our contemporaries as from anybody else, and when are young we learn from our contemporaries what no professor, however eminent, can teach us. Therefore, it is that while i admire that lives admirable beyond any power of mine to express my admiration, of those solitary students who, under great difficulties, come up to Edinburgh or some other University and without intercourse with their fellows, doggedly and perseveringly purse their studies very often under serious pressure of home difficulties – their course however admirable, is not course which can give them to the fullest those great whose lot is more happily cast than theirs. I believe, on the contrary that the intercourse between students which it has produced, organizations to which it has given birth, and the good fellowship which it has secured, are of infinite educational value.

Precis: The value of a university

The value of a university consists chiefly in mental intercourse between the students. During our youth we learn from our contemporaries what no professor can teach. The Student, however, diligently he may pursue his studies, cannot reap the fullest advantage of his university life unless he comes in close contact with his fellow students. The athletic movement has served a great educational purpose in this respect. It has facilitated intercourse between the students and promoted a spirit of god fellowship among them.
