Dear Students:

In this, my initial greeting to you, there are many things which come to mind
which I should like to say. Many of these I must reserve for a future time when


it is my hope


that I may meet you individually


or address


you collectively.


In welcoming you warmly to this beautiful campus, I should like to point out
that a proper orientation plays an important part in one's success and happiness
as a college student.

DURING


ORIENTATION


WEEK


The Orientation Committee has planned this program because it thinks it is
important that you become acquainted with the University of Florida early in
your college career. We have tried to include in the schedule information and
activities which will make you feel more at home during your first few weeks
with us. We know that you will find college life somewhat different from high
school. We want to help you become a "Florida" student.


This booklet has been prepared largely by

During


the first semester the subject matter is drawn from a large number of integrated


topics


in the


physical


sciences-astronomy,


meteorology,


geography,


geology,


physics, and chemistry.


During the second semester the student pursues a more


intensive study of a chosen area.

C-3, Reading, Speaking and Writing:


This course is slanted toward the view


of self-correction and improvement through each student's ability to get the
meaning from the printed page with more than average speed, to read with better
understanding and deeper enjoyment, to write more accurately and interestingly,


to speak with greater


effectiveness and


to listen actively.
