    ...through a (sadly, now defunct) college which took the Hampshire/Antioch model several steps further.  My "professors" included academic physicists, community organizers, street performers, classically trained composers, jazz musicians, drum-makers and a few university professors.

    And I can truthfully say that I use everything I learned in college — all the time, every day.

    Growing up in a family of professors, not going to college was emphatically not an option — but this was an excellent approach that gave me the maximum possible intellectual freedom.
