')) i .. :,--c:),, < vl,.;_ ,_., 5 'V_f' I ;-' LIBRARY ; The 1967 New College AI 1-Stars cP :< '?sorA I .. .. These 10 men and a were members of New College's first charter class formed th e years ago. Getting into college was no problem for them. They had the records that catch the attention of admissions officers at any fine school. But instead of playing it safe, hqweyer, they elected to take a chance at New College with its challenge to them to set their own academic pace without grades, required class attendance, or routine examinations. Now here they are just four months before graduation. They have good reason to look happy. Among them they have won five Woodrow Wilson Fellowships, two Danforth Fellowships (the only two in the State of Florida), two National Science Foundation Fellowships, two Fulbright Fellowships, and half a dozen honorable mentions in these four national competitions. They represent approximately one-fourth of their graduating class. All but six or seven members of that class, incidentally, are going on to graduate school, most of them with Fellowship support. New Col lege's educational experience is costly but on the basis of results compiled by this first class, it would be hard to find a better investment. Not that we expect our students to pay the full cost of operating the college. In common with practically all in-dependent colleges, we depend on the generosity of friends who are well enough impressed with what we are doing to be willing to help pay for it. Further, mature secondary school juniors or seniors with better than average ability and a liking for independent, self-directed study, should write to Robert J. Norwine, Dean of Admissions,


New College, Sarasota. All others, and .this includes anyone with a serious interest in the improvement of undergraduate, liberal arts education, should write to President John Elmendorf, at the above address. Join and support next year's a11-starsl
