Here I can’t find the variety of majors offered at Yale. I have even taken on Hindi studies on my own, outside of class. I receive no credit for my independent language studies and, within my formal language classes, there is practically no linguistic context. This has now become a vibrant, central part of my life. W&L’s faculty, however, has no classical guitarist with whom I may study. This sounds hard to believe, but I am the only classical guitarist on campus.
