The major aim of any education should be the training of the mind as an instrument of knowledge, and not simply to fill it with the furniture of objective knowledge. Education, be it general or specific, should focus on the total development – intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical, and ethical, of an individual, through the offering of superior academic and non-academic programs of study.

As the college education which determines an individual’s prospects in life is a major influencing factor not only on his career, but his character and attitude as well, it should not be restricted to the development of intellectual and physical aspects of the person, but should be extended to impart spiritual and moral training, eventually leading to the creation of a pious, responsible and patriotic citizen, who respects not only himself, but also those around him.
