. NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR -INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE A ten-year projection of the growth of New College was adopted by the New College Board of Trustees Friday as they ended their 1965 Annual Meeting. The plan was presented by President George F. Baughman following the Board's Thursday activation of the New College Foundation to assist in developing long range planning for the college and in locating resources to implement them. Keys to the program are the gradual increase in enrollment of the college to a projected student body of 700 in 1975 and the continued de-velopment and consolidation of activities on the East Campus. Board Chairman Louis H. LaMotte said that projections for faculty, facilities, and finances based on the increase in size of the student body were recommended and approved. President Baughman presented his projections based on maintaining an incoming student body of 100 for two more years and then increasing at an annual rate of 25 through 1975 when the student body should reach 700. He said that the 10-year plan was the culmination of four years of effort in first founding the college and then creating the basis for its continuation and growth. more
