VOL. No. 2 No. 1 Cooperative Housing Effective Experiment Another on-going NEw CoLLEGE was inaugurated last year. Pnmanly because of the housing shortage on campus, but also because of a desire to test cooperative housing, the College purchased two large house5 several blocks south of the campus between the Trail and Sarasota Bay. Approximately 8 women and 8 men collectively rented the houses from the College, pooled their re sources and shared expenses. Although men and women lived in separate builclings, aU took their meals in a communal dining room, and cooking. marketing, cleaning and repairs were assigned on a regular basis. According to students who participated in the experiment, it was an interesting and enlightening experience. Success of the venture is difficult to measure since it must be based almost entirely on the educational value for participa t ing students. Due to the large number of students on 4-year option this term, the co oppers have sub-let one of the houses to non-students. Class Of 71 Includes 21 Transfers Among the entering class of 170 students this year, the largest class yet admitted, are a record number of stu dents transferring from other colleges. Their presence on campus indicates a growing awareness of NEW COLLEGE among undergraduates nt other col l eges and universities. Their numbers also show that the NEW COLLEGE ed ucational program, which gives greater responsibility to the individual stu dents, appeals to students who have begun in more traditional and less flexible programs. Transfer students interviewed gen erally gave credit to the program and to the opportumty to work closely with faculty as their reasons for changing colleges. Among colleges represented by the transfers are Shimer, Wellesley, New York Uni versity, Boston University, Olivet and Harvard. NEW COLLEGE A Letter From The President Many of you wrote me during my recent tllness and it has not been possible to reply to every letter. Perhaps this can serve as a collective (and hearty) note of thanks. (Apparently I have to have a heart attack to get letters from alumni!) In any event. I am now back at the job of trying to keep New College on the road to tts destiny. even, at times. to speculate rather pointedly on what that destiny may be. As we prepare to admit our sixth class, we are prompted to start asking a whole lot of new questions about our basic policies, procedures, and philosophies, including some about the nature of the student body we want. One of our hang-ups 1s that we have been so happy with you who have been here that we hate to change things much, but, at the same time, we suspect we are getting frozen m certain patterns and already losing our capacity to change as the world changes. Change, however, is always with us, and I for one don't worry too much about academic hardening of the arteries. We miss you ull and welcome your messages. John Elmendorf APRIL 1969 -The Campus Book Store In Expanded Quarters With its floor space more than doubled by the addition of 1090 sq. ft., the Campus Book Shop now is ready to serve the general public as well as students and faculty. Three years ago this month the bookstore moved from its original quarters on the West Campus to its present location It now stocks not only textbooks for the college tnde, but also bestsellers, reference books, chi l dren's and art books a large number of paperbacks, gift and holiday cards, stationery, gifts, and even posters and prints. Founded by the late I. J. Paster, the shop is now managed by his daughter, Mrs. Morton Gulak, assis t ed by her sister-in-law, Mrs. Saul Paster. Mrs. Gulak's arch i tect husband designed the new addition, and the entire shop is fully carpeted, we ll lighted, and con tains adequate shelv i ng. Mrs. Gulak expects to doub l e t he number of books ava i lable d u ring the coming year, as t h e volume of sa l es i n creased to 25,000-30,000 volumes last year. She credi t s the large a m o un t o f business to the voracious reading habits of NEW COLLEGE studen ts. The shop also has a ste;ady flow of local book and gift buyers, most of whom learned about the shop accidentally or while attending special courses or lec tures at the college.

-..... --New Dorntitories Now Under Construction New student housing has moved off the blueprints on to the green lawns under the pines on the Palmer at NF.w CoLLEGE. 1 he above sketch shows the dormitory complex as it will appear in the fall of 1969. Two years of planning preceded start of construction of five new build ings rising on NEW CouEGE's Palmer Campus to house 160 students, to pro vide apartments for faculty and also to make added teaching space. Construction on the buildings, esti mated to cost $700,000, began in December under a unique contractor consultant arrangement with T. T. Watson, Inc. of Sarasota. 1 he college established guidelines to make the project a community effort with all subcontracting work possible being done by Sarasota-Bradenton organiza tions and also to build quality buildings that arc at the same time inexpensive All those working on the project arc encouraged to make cost-saving sug gestions. The architectural firm of Pancoast, Fercndino and Grafton designed the buildings. Seeds of the ideas for the new build ings began at a seminar on student housing held on campus in 1967 under the sponsorship of Educational Facil ities Laboratories (EFL), an agency created bv the Ford Foundation. Out o( discussions between students, faculty, administrators, architects, Jay people, and EFL specialists came the basic conclusions that helped deter mine the present building complex. One finding, for instance, was that students today prefer smaller, cottage type residences rather than the huge conventional-style college dormitories. Students, the findings showed. dislike the impersonality of the large dormitor ies and prefer the identification with the smaller group in "cottages." Related to that was the second con clusion: that the student's number one preference is for some type of resi dential privacy for study and reflection. When the college trustees last year authorized the college to proceed with the expansion of the student body, one of the first areas to receive attention was the increase in housing accommo dations. Last fall, for the first time, the col lege ran out of dormitory space. Some students agreed to live out in the corn munity, but even more students arc expected to arrive next fall as the enrollment begins to swell gradually toward the 1973 target of 800. Space will be badly needed. Planning Director Capt. Ralph E. Styles was asked to coordinate all ideas for new residences with the architects. Manv meetings were held between the archi'tects, students and college administrators to reach the final stages. All of the five buildings now under construction foiiow same basic structure. They arc two-story, concrete block and poured concrete buildings. The four that will house students have identical first and second floors. These four buildings have 16 bed study rooms on each floor housing 20 students. totalling 160 students in all buildings. All units will have each floor divided into two suites in which groups of 10 students will share a common living room which overlooks the stand of pine trees on the Palmer campus. Each suite also shares bath facilities. Ad joining each of these living rooms will be a kitchenette where the group can prepare snacks or coffee. In single rooms, which form the majority of the living spaces, there will be a bed, a desk, and closet facilities. Privacy here, mther than spaciousness, is the keyword. Built-in facilities con serve space. Tn the fifth building there will be two faculty apartments, nine class rooms, faculty otftces and on the ground floor, student activity rooms for mail, television, laundry, vending machines and storage area. One important conclusion of the earlier seminars was that the residences should be communities for living. Classrooms should not necessarily be relegated to a certain specific area of the campus, but there should be an intermingling of disciplines, faculty. students, studying and living. This, the seminar report concluded, insures a greater overall use of facilities. When classrooms are not being used for classes they should be convenient, for instance, for student meeting and study rooms.

New College Grads Are Following The National Trends An informal survey of NEw CoL LEGE graduates reveals that those who went directly to jobs tended to go to work in jobs outside of industry and business This follows a nationwide trend for college students. A number entered teaching fields some are in social work and the thea ter; one is a novitiate in the Catholic church, while another is with a major symphony orchestra Possibly the toughest job was taken on by Charles Hamilton, a member of the charter class who has studied economics and appeared headed for a banking or business career. He de cided instead to teach and took an assignment in New York's Spanish Harlem, one of the most difficult in the New York school system Tom Todd, who while at NEW CoLLEGE worked part-time for an area newspaper, now is night editor for Associated Press in New Haven, Conn. During the day, he is a full-time stu dent in the Yale Law School. Following teaching careers else where are Cheryl White. who is teach ing American literature at the Univer sity in Rcnnes, France, and Ray Ben nett, a tutor at NEW CoLL'CGF after a year of graduate school. Social work careers have been begun in Ohio by Kathy Dively and in Rich mond, Va. by Sam Treynor. Jerry Neugarten, who is taking a year to work before entering law scJ:tool at the University of Chicago. works with the American Civil Liber ties Union and is doing research on Criminal administration in Connecti cut. Cheryl Hess, who worked with the Turnau Opera Company as an under graduate, followed up by joining the company during its season in Wood stock. N. Y. Mary O'Keefe has become a novice in one of the orders of the Catholic Church. Mary, whose interests were mathematics at NEW CoLLEGE, was the daughter of one of the leading astronomers working with the NationThe Proposed New Library Shown above is a sketch of the NEW CoLLEGE Library as designed by Pancoast / Ferendino / Grafton, leading architects of Mia mi. The building will be located on the bayfront just north of the present College Hall library It is one of the major goals of the present Capital Campaign drive. It will also be a central element in the complex of buildings proposed for the bayfront area of the Palmer Campus. Seen from Longboat Key across Sarasota Bay, it will rise from the water's edge, strongly sculptured, yet human and inviting with its sensible accommodation of humans, its beautiful proportions and its lack of prete nse From the campus itself it will provide, beneath it and its surrounding buildings, a large open plaza designated not for cere monies or monumentality but for the constant use of people. This design will also frame a series of views from the plaza area. The Library building will employ the modular form of con struction that is both economical and flexible as to space arrange ments. Since the maximum use of the building will not occur until about 1976 when volume capacity is reached, the Library provides, in the interim years needed space for classrooms and faculty offices. These will later be accommodated in the buildings that will eventually ftank the Library and its plaza. a! Aeronautic and Space Administra tion research center ncar Washington D.C. Known to many in Sarasota for her performances as a lutist with the Flor ida West Coast Symphony Orchestra Cheryl McWhorter is now facing new musical audiences with the Miami Philharmonic Orchestra. Editor of the NEW COLLEGE student newspaper for a year Laurie Paulson is now a reporter for a New Jersey newspaper and author of a weekly col umn. While many of the graduates chose to take jobs a good many others are pursuing added studies in graduate and professional schools. Of these Yale. Columbia and Chi cago were their most popular choices, followed by Princeton CornelL Min nesota and Berkeley All of them arc on the first rungs of their careers, but early reports indi cate they are beginning to climb. Experimental College Union To Meet At New College In July NEW COLLEGE has been selected as the site of a summer workshop that will bring to the campus for two weeks, educators from a number of the nation's most innovative colleges. Beginning July 2, the Union for Re search and Experimentation in Higher Education (UREHE) will hold work shops for its Project Changeover, a program to encourage innovation in college teaching. Expected to attend the two-week session are faculty members from the 12 member institutions of UREHE Antioeh, Bard, Goddard, Hofstra, lll inois Teachers College-North, Loretto Heights, Monteith, Nasson, New Col lege, Sarah Lawrence, Shimer and Stephens -in addition to selected other four-year colleges and universi ties
