EW December, 1964 "HIS OWN RESPONSIBILITY" PAUL HA SMA, Scottsdale, Arizona. Interest, PHYSICS. Honored by President Johnson as one of the nation's 121 most outstanding students. President of Teen Club. Hobby, building fountains. "At ew College, the student soon becomes fully aware that his education i his own responsibility. In many schools students become so concerned over cramming for quizzes that they lose sight of their educational goal ew College does not depend on frequent tests and quizzes. Rather a student i free to secure an edu cation that is tailor-fitted to his in tere ts and capabilities from the ex cellent resources available. Obtain ing an education rather than pas ing quizzes is not only more practical but more rewarding." "SIMPLE TO COMMUNICATE" ESTHER L YN BARAZZO E, Port Charlotte, Florida. Interest undecided. Valedictorian of her cla Member of the Governor's Youth Advisory Council. Girls' ation enator. 'New College tud nts are sympathetic to one another's sear h for self-realization and they find it remarkably imple to ommunicate regardles of op posite opinion or ocial orientation. I find an amazing lack of p eudo-intellectual who merely assume the po ture of inquirer In tead, New College is peopled by real searchers who ee as their life goal the honest pursuit of answer and who have the forthrightness to express and live by their self imposed creeds. The result is an atmosphere in which everyone seems to make a genuine attempt to under stand the other fellow and him elf. Communication between tudent and student and between student and faculty is wonderful!" Sarasota, Florida "NO SET PATTERN" RACHEL FINDLEY, La Grange, Illinois. Interest, SociAL SciENCE 795 average on five College En trance Examination Board core ational Council of Teachers of English Achievement Award. Member of American Friends Service Committee High School Planning Committee. "There is now no set pattern of thought or action at New College. Perhaps the most important thing the first scholars here can do is to refrain from creat ing tandard opinion and behavior which others could adopt without carefully examining their own beliefs and motivation The tradition <>f thought and freedom thus created could provide opportunitie for per sonal and academic growth which do not, as far as I know, exist in any other educational institution." "BUILT AROUND THE STUDENT" MARK WHITTAKER, Bangor, Maine. Interest, POLITICAL SciENCE. President of the National Asso ciation of Student Councils. All-New England Actor. Member of Christian Youth Fellowship. "This college is being built around the tudent, not the student around the college. My class and the classes that follow will have the privilege of ex pressing their ideas in the plans for the college. here are many opportunities for student activity and the New College Students have even been invited to par ticipate in community music pro grams and acting groups. Being a golfer, I have been challenged by two very hard courses. A greater challenge is the one given us to stretch our minds, so when we have graduated, we will have absorbed perhaps the finest liberal arts edu cation ima 'nable."


"AWARENESS & UNDERSTANDING" DENNIS KEZAR, Ames, Iowa. Interest, PRE MEDICINE. College Board SAT's high 600's. Captain of football and wrestling teams. Played in orchestra. "Two important questions in a student's mindwho am I? why am I here?-should be answered by his undergraduate education. I feel the most com plete, satisfying answers to these questions are found in the liberal arts education. Although I plan to study medicine I feel too much early concentration on any one area leaves a man an intellectual cripple. The competent doctor must understand not only the physical but also the social and mental makeup of his pa tients. It is an educational ideal of New College to equip its graduates with an awareness and understand ing of the unity of knowledge." ow is New College affected by the required delay or accreditation? ew College has received assurances from accrediting es, such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, that only a fonnal time re quirement keeps the college from receiving accredita tion and that accreditation will come easily within the shortest time possible. Does this affect students going on to graduate and professional schools? :Accreditation, for the student terminating with a achelors degree, should have little meaning, but the implications for graduate and professional school placement can be important. We have contacted a number of leading public and private universities on the acceptance of New College students for graduate work. Their response has been uniform. They are searching, they say. for students of ability, educated "ATMOSPHERE IS FREE AND FRIENDLY" RAY McCLAIN, Columbia, South Carolina. Interest, PoLITICAL SCIENCES. Student government president. State extemporaneous speaking champion. South Carolina Press Association contest winner. "When students and faculty get together around New College, the atmosphere is free and friendly. In fact, what we're doing is becorping friends. Almost any time we're likely to spot a professor chatting informally-or arguing spiritedly-with a group of students about anything from the essence of human nature to prob lems of starting a college. The di tinctive fact of the New College com munity is that it is small enough that everyone can think of anyone else as an interesting individual." in a quality educational program, and recommended as :teady for their they say, provides only a guide for the program strength and, of course, cannot be applied to New College. May Merit Scholars use their awards at New CoUege? New College has appeal for students who have dis tinguished themselves in National Merit Scholarship Corporation competition. Over one-third of the Charter Class members were semi-finalists and five were designated as honorary or stipend National Merit Scholars. Are awards affected by the three-year program? Yes. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recognized in its program the three year plan of New College versus the standard four year plan and ad justed the award accordingly.
