Dean Hawkins will leave his post as college Dean. An open hearing held on graduation requirements examines four proposals made by the Academic Program Committee--1. "A student must complete and pass 34 courses with a cumulative average of 2.00" 2. "Students who have been admitted as degree candidates and are carrying three to five and one-half courses are full-time matriculated" 3. "The normal maximum of five and one-half courses may not be exceeded without permission of the Committee on Academic Standards" 4. "In computing a student's cumulative average, all courses shall have equal weight" The "Jan Plan" was also discussed. In an open hearing held, students generally favor the proposal to change Witwer and Malcolm to co-ed dorms. Faculty approves eight new courses in Political Science, Classical Studies, and Fine Arts. The Senate discusses resolutions to the preregistration procedures, limiting "outsiders" to Union facilities, reducing paper use as a result of inter-college mail room communications, and the election of five students to serve on the Subcommittee of Faculty Evaluation.
