Hillsdale College declines, but Grove City College still worthwhile.
Thomas DiLorenzo observes
that Hillsdale College is being (has been?) lost to neoconservative Lincoln and Churchill worshippers.
Thus, as he adds, my alma mater, Grove City College, is the best place to go for "high quality and genuinely private education."
I agree, of course. GCC has a stellar economics program, which includes Austrian scholars Jeffrey Herbener
and Shawn Ritenour, and seems to get better all the time. Certainly the new Austrian Student Scholars Conference
is something of which the school should be extremely proud.
I was most
disappointed, however, to see the school's latest Vision and Values
publication (which is sort of like Hillsdale's Imprimis
, but not as widely circulated), which featured a transcript of a warmongering talk by Mona Charen
on "Useful Idiots" who question Bush's war plans in any way. And they even had Karl Rove on campus as a speaker a while back. Disturbing stuff.
Nonetheless, if you want an excellent educational environment (e.g., no on-campus alcohol, sex, homosexuality, etc.) and want to study Austrian economics, I can think of nowhere that I would recommend more highly.
