[Video: A man sits by a video camera. Male #1, female #1, and male #2 sit side by side and talk to him.]
Male interviewer speaks: What did you think of liberal arts?
Male #2 speaks: I wasn’t even really thinking about liberal arts.
Female #1 speaks: I also had no idea what liberal arts was, what my options were.
Interviewer speaks: Why liberal arts at IUPUI?
