z ,-s_: .., :../>( "(' / "" 01 l. AUGUST 1967 I I) J\ f 1.. Sarasota, Florida NEW COLLEGE PARENTS COMMITTEE C A M P U S GRADUATION The big day finally came, on July 22nd, for 45 members of the original Charter Class. Bachelor of Arts degrees were awarded to the first graduates of New College in simple, nontraditional, but impressive ceremonies. The long anticipated moment was full of contradictions -both happiness and sadness prevailed. The graduates, dressed not in caps and gowns, but in neat suits and dresses, somehow looked even younger than they did on July 21st. Pleased parents appeared alternately elated, proud, somewhat misty-eyed, and greatly relieved. President Elmendorf's commencement speech was most appropriate we thought, and is printed in its entirety on the reverse side of this bulletin. Music provided by the New College Brass Choir added an innovating note, as did the reading of the poetry written by two of the graduates. Those of us who have observed, worked with, enjoyed these 45 students for the past three years will miss them very much. but we wish them every success and happiness. FUND Gifts and pledges to the Parents Fund total $8,130.50!! Our $10,000 goal now seems more realistic. Several parents have made more than one donation -several more have indicated that they will give later on. We are especially pleased with this heartwarming response, knowing only too well how tight is the average budget when putting youngsters through college. Our thanks to all of you who have contributed. DEA.' OF STUDEX'I'S The appointment of Dr. George Petrie, Professor of Mathematics, as Dean of Students wiLl greatly ease the load which has been carried by Robert wine, Dean of Admissions, who has also been Dean of Students. Dr. Petrie's duties will include general supervisory and coordinating responsibilities for extra-and co-curricular activities, student health, student discipline, and the college counseling program. The new Dean's staff is already hard at work on plans for orientation for new students entering in September. C H A T T E R };'ETtJ FACULTY Dr. William H. Hamilton was recently appointed to the new post of Pro fessor of Religious Studies. Dr. Hamilton comes to us from Colgate Rochester Divinity School, where he has been Professor of Theology since 1953. For more than five years, he has worked with the Columbia Broadcasting System and the National Coun cil of Churches on religious television. He has appeared on more than 40 "Look Up and Live" programs, and has written a number of television scripts. RENOVATIONS AND ALTERA'I'IONS Sanford House, which adjoins College Hall and is the former horne of the late Mrs. Charles Sanford, member of the Ringling family, is undergoing extensive remodeling and repairs. Located on Sarasota Bay, the refurbished building will provide excellent facilities for President Elmendorf, as well as space for additional administrative and faculcy offices. ***College Hall, too, is undergoing changes to provide much needed space for library expansion. Removal of the fountain and installation of hundreds of feet of shelving will make room for some 25,000 additional volumes as they are acquired. CALENDAR CHANGE The revised calendar adopted continues to offer the opportunity of graduation in three years to students willing to work the year around, but provides a four-year option for those wishing to avail themselves of the traditional summer vacatioc and two or three terms away from the campus. Six members of the Class of '67 pe titioned to return ior a year and will be back on Sep tember. Among New College graduates will hang their sheepskins ic are: Laura Rawson and Rick Von Behren Maureen Spear and Dennis Kezar Karen Fryklund and Rsy Bennett Carol Worby and Bud Holder Rachel Findley and Bill Diana Shiphorst ar.d "kleja CAMPUS CHATTER will be coming your way periodically. Your comments suggestions are invited and will be appreciated. 0 A;/!tf:tions
