For this Carolina alum, an honors class begins a lifetime of education for the sake of learning as the goal

Lane McDonald, Institute for the Arts and Humanities

In some ways it’s too bad that my intellectual awakening happened so late, but the good news is it did happen, and in enough time for me to leverage UNC as a resource to feed it.  But, learning for interest, nourishing curiosity and digging to the next level of understanding is also ingrained in me now.  And I have Carolina to thank for it.
