Arthur FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SARASOTA--Six graduate students from universities in Argentina, Chile and Peru arrive Tuesday for a 10-day visit to New College. Ending a several month stay in the United States, sponsored by the Experiment in International Living, the six elected to visit the New College campus before returning to their own countries.

They arrive on campus here after a tour of Washington, D. c. During the visit to New College, all of the students hope to learn how a small u.s. college functions, how its students govern themselves, and how such a college differs from their own Latin American universities.
