/ NEW NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: The second Charter Class of New College, entering in the fall of this year is all but complete, according to Dean of Admissions Robert J. Norwine. He said that 97 students have been admitted and that a decision is expected soon from a few others that should round out the class at 100 as projected. Norwine said that the new class is comparable in every way to the first group that entered last fall and which in August will complete its first year. Of the 97 at present, 55 are boys and 42 are girls. While last year's class represented 28 states and the District of Columbia, this year's class added representation from Alabama, California, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Utah, and Washington. "For the second year we were able to extend invitations of ad-mission to an outstanding group of young men and women," said Dean Norwine. "Because of the necessity for severely limiting the size of our student body during our formative years, we regretfully had to deny admission to many who might be qualified at almost any col-lege in the nation." -more-


Second Charter Class -Page 2 He said that the class this year repeats the diversity of strengths of the first charter class. Using only entrance examination test scores, a national statistical yardstick, he noted that New College students score far above average as a group. At the same time, he said that New College students are chosen for their leadership in other fields and h e cited a number of class or student council presidents, leaders of clubs from 4-H to National Honor Society, football, baseball and other sport lettermen, and yearbook and newspaper editors. He also cited several students who already had spent a year abroad studying, a number of advanced Scouts, and numerous church and civic group leaders. The new underclassmen arrive at New College on September 22 for a week of orientation under the guidance of the faculty, staff and first charter class students. For this new group, classes officially begin September 27th. Dean Norwine said that 64 of the second charter class would take advantage of some form of financial aid available through the college. This aid varies from the highest award, a charter scholarship, through loans available under the National Defense Education Act. and to campus work opportunities available this year for the first time on a regular basis. -more-


Second Charter Class Page 3 "Again this year we have discovered that we are compared by our students with some of the very outstanding colleges and uni-versities in the nation,8 said Dean Norwine. "One has acknowledged that he was accepted at Harvard, Rice, Yale, and Princeton, but that he chose New College. We know from a study of applications and other data that we are being ranked with this type of institution in the minds of many student." -30-
