Put Them All Together

Recently we have heard a number
of suggestions and ideas originating
in seemingly unrelated corners of the
campus which if combined into an or organized
ganized organized program would take us one
giant-step closer to a solution of the
timeless puzzle of strengthening
school spirit and respect for campus
The Freshman Forum committee is
currently preparing a series of three
hour-long programs for presentation
to the freshman class this Fall.
The programs are being geared to
inform the new students of the history
and traditions of the University, im impress
press impress them with the value and im importance
portance importance of extracurricular activity
both to the students and the univer university
sity university system as a whole, and to inspire
these freshmen to take an active role
in campus life.
However, in order that these pro programs
grams programs might accomplish their goals,
the committee first has to figure out
a means of interesting the freshmen
in attending.
One very good suggestion has been
made that a committee of upper upperclassmen
classmen upperclassmen be formed to visit the new
students in the dorms the first days
of the semester, explain the purpose
and goals of the programs and give
them a personal invitation to attend.
Carried a few steps further, this
Same group could serve a broader
function in establishing a means of
welcoming freshmen to our campus,
making them feel comfortable in their
new surroundings and giving them
their firet taste of the true meaning
of the Friendly Campus tradition.
Student government could provide
a worthwhile service to the Univer University
sity University by supplying the man-power for
this Gator Greeting Committee.
Each Spring hundreds of hopeful of office
fice office seekers stomp the dorms in the
annual election campaign.
Th&fee experienced glad-handers
would be the ideal group of students

Another problem facing the Fresh Freshman
man Freshman Forum Committee is a practical
method of following-up the program.
That is, once they manage to get these
freshmen interested enough to want
to take part in extracurriculars, how
can they insure that the new students
well find a spot to fill in some area of
student activity before the initial en enthusiam
thusiam enthusiam dies out?
Once again the solution can be
found with the aid of student govern government
ment government through the Office of the Secre Secretr
tr Secretr of Labor. We have always main maintained
tained maintained that this department of stu student
dent student government has actually wasted
its time in the past providing a service
that was either not used by students
or was duplicated by some other uni university
versity university agency.
By concentrating their efforts in
establishing a functional personnel
service for all student organizations,
the Secretary of Labor and his staff
could serve a much more worthwhile
and practical purpose.
Besides merely providing a stand standing
ing standing personnel service, a temporary
placement board composed of exper experienced

at the beginning of each semester to
interview and channel interested
freshmen to the student activity they
are best suited for.
This placement board, once the
freshmen are informed of its availa availability
bility availability and function, would supply the
final link in the chain.
So by combining these supposedly
unrelated ideas we could establish a
remarkable system for transforming
