The question of the small college's future likely will be determined by the individual colleges themselves. If they make themselves irrelevant to their students, as well as to society at large, the small college may at best then hope for a hand-to-mouth marginal existence. But such a situation would, indeed be ironic. The irony would lie in the fact that the small, so-called liberal arts college seemingly can most effectively offer not only the type or quality of education most needed today in our society, but also can provide the optimum educational settings and conditions.
