The goal of a university education

There is an excellent New York Times online article What is College For? by Gary Gutting, a philosophy Professor at Notre Dame University.
I agree. The principle goal of a university education is not to pass courses, get a degree, get a job, to be entertained, or to enjoy extracurricular activities. Rather, it is to be intellectually stimulated and learn to think in new ways and about new things.
