Studies A Search

First year students must not think, however, that the staff was not interested in them, but with a roll of 2500 they must be prepared to take the initiative. Ho said that students were invited, at the University, to use their intellects and reason. All their work should be a process of search. Victoria had had many brilliant students but did not cater for them alone. It offered a way of looking at life; they could learn to form reasonable judgments, and to regard life steadily. Beyond any intellectual excitement, they should remember also that the university was a society for meeting fellow students. It was universal in its interests, and they would find opportunity for social intercourse in bewildering prolixity.

Wisdom they would find was the union of intellectual excitement with experience of living, and they should take a full part in the extra-curricular activities of the University.
