2) The new Students, on the other

in the affirmative, this delay might give
the new student better perspective about

Delayed rush has been debated more
often than we care to relate. What it
boils down to is this: the student, given
a semester or two to really see what
college life is all about, would be a bet better

in the long run.
The present system is doing the Uni University

something is needed to further increase

But even more compelling is to give
