There is something special about a liberal arts education.

According to graduates questioned in a recent survey, the kind of college education you get matters a lot. Liberal arts graduates report getting something very different, and in many ways better, than graduates of other types of institutions.

“The Value and Impact of the College Experience: A Comparative Study,” reports on the results of a survey commissioned by The Annapolis Group and conducted by Hardwick Day. This survey of graduates gauges how alumni with degrees in liberal arts and sciences majors from different types and sizes of institution experienced and benefited from their college experience.

This week Colorado College and other colleges are celebrating Liberal Arts Education Week by sharing this survey.
