Can you recommend an essay that defends a liberal education?

I'm teaching college freshman English and I inherited a class and syllabus at the last minute from someone who could no longer do it. So I'm stuck with his assignments, readings, etc. at least for the first few weeks while I get my bearings. We just read some articles about what's wrong with American college education. Can you recommend any glittering defenses of liberal arts?
