Levine reflects on the impact of 9/11

"This is a generation that was torn between doing well and doing good," commented President Arthur Levine. Although it is unclear how the events of September 11th will shape future generations, it is obvious the recent outpouring of good will, sympathy, and donations were unheard of phenomena in New York City.

"This is a generation that was torn between doing well and doing good," commented President Arthur Levine. Although it is unclear how the events of September 11th will shape future generations, it is obvious the recent outpouring of good will, sympathy, and donations were unheard of phenomena in New York City. Still, President Levine asserts that attitudes of students are shaped by the social events of their time.

"Ultimately," Levine said, "the price that we will pay is this is a generation that will seek to do well and will be more oriented toward good jobs, will be more oriented toward self, and perhaps less oriented toward community."

The article, entitled "The year it all changed" appeared in the December 30, 2001 edition of the The Akron Beacon Journal.
