INTRODUCTION Ahy h 1-.f\ee. i.s pkr../y eoi "'e ;dent PRESIDENT'S REMARKS TO THE INCOMING CLASS 1 Welcome to the new New College. You will find we are new--neither what we were last year nor what we will be next year. Part of your role here will be determining your future and helping us determine ours. Only you can make something meaningful of this experience in your life. You have many others to help you for each of us in the New College community will affect your life in some way. We also will count on your help. You will be exposed here to both education and schooling (a distinction your Provost will explain) and you should enjoy New College as a place where be profitably pursued. Arland F. Christ-Janer


CA PUS: HOUSING One of the most exciting opportunities New College offers you is the chance to experiment with differ ent lifestyles. Even campus housing offers two di: ferent subcommunities in which you can become involved. Associate Dean of Student Affairs Steve Noble is here p:-imarily to see that you are satisfied with your living arrangements. Here is how you can change them: MOVE TO ANOTHER ROOM: See Steve in the Student Affairs Office REDECORATE: There are nvo Goodwill centers in the area, a number of cheap furniture stores plus lots of garage sales. This year, pamting walls will not be allowed and remember that you will be fined for all damage to your room and its furniture. Speaking of damage, we've had some trouble with fires, which can be avoided by adhering to a simple rules: l) No refrigerators or hotplates in the rooms except small (4 cu. ft.) refrigerators under the sink in the bathroom. 2) Be careful about overloading circuits. MOVE OFF CAMPUS: See page 6. os Room numbering for East Campus dorms upstairs/ downstairs ENTRANCE Odd numbered rooms are downstairs and even numbered are upstairs. -Artist's conception of the Northeast Campus the great dry spell came and desiccated our flow, turning fountains into flowerbeds. New College's striking Pei dorms offer the student a certain amotmt of privacy. Featuring individual entrances, picture windows, and/ or balconies, these rooms provide a bed, desk, bookshelf, small table, floor lamp, plus all the modem conveniences including a move-in closet (watch that door), somewhat hot or cold water, a bath and shower, toilet, mirror, and roommate. Students find these dorms attractive, good-sized and easy to get lost in. Second and Third Court look just like the map and First Court is a mirror image. True bliss is sharing the garbage C.etail with your dormmates, according to residents of New College's Palmer dorms. While luxury and privacy seem to be the key words on the East Campus, West Campus dwellers prefer the luxury of good company in their common rooms, and often, the privacy of a single room. The occupants of these cells are requisitioned one bed, one desk, three shelves, and a closet (no, that's your room). If you take the screen out of your window, you too can have a classy balcony. One plus for these dorms is their proximity to the latmdry room which, along with a bumper pool table and some vending machines, is located in A-Building and doubles as a sauna. bathroom living Room (C & D dorms) Kitchen, Common Room Kitchen, Common Room 'r--1--' I r--/ I / I I

RECREATION After settling in your room, you will be wondering what to do. If you are a zealous student, treasure this monent won't be many. If you aren't and are without transportation or bread, get used to it ... you will be wondering what to do for the next three or four years. Cheryl Beil in the Student Affairs Office will be coordinating recreational activities this year. In the past, lessons in ballet, mod ern dance, jazz dance, lifesaving, folkdancing, fencing, Karate, Scuba diving, Aikido, Yol<(a, jewelry-making, and auto mechanics have been offered to students. New College has always sheltered some excellent chess p ayers and the Japanese game, Go, has a number of fans on campus. Sports on cam pus are impromptu with tennis rond basketb:Jl taking the lead in organization and volleyball and pinball tying for regularity. PLACES TO CHECK OUT ON CAMPUS :vrr.DIA CENTER: Located in what might be H-6. the Media Center's primary goal is to .avoid being a misnomer. Equipment is gradually piling up for movie and videotape prouction, recording, and performing. The language lab and a small library of tapes are also loc atry of U110rmation on women's studies. NEWSPAPER OFFICE: On publication night, if you wander by the office in A-Building, they'll put you right to work. MUSIC ROOM: With all the intelligent planning that is so apparent in the design of the Natural Sciences Building, this room is located next to and undern ath the library. The Stting Quartet pracnces there most weekdays from 9-11 am. It features a Stemway grand piano, organ, and arpsichord. BAYFRONT: Explore lt. Head orth. There's more than you think.

OFF-CAMPUS STUDY The Off-Campus Study Office staff collects and constructs resources and opportunities for cross-cultural study, research and service internships, and study at other colleges with programs of special interest. The Off-Campus Study Director and the Administrative Assistant in the office have ideas and files which can take you all over the world and broaden your experience in any discipline. In addition, the office has a comprehensive set of undergraduate and graduate college catalogsas well as guides to graduate programs and fellowships. They publish their own handbook, which you should read, and, by all means, stop by and check out the office. GETTING OFF WHEN YOU'RE ON There is no need to travel far for interesting fieldwork. Manv 5tudents have it profitable to combine at New College with practical experience in the Sarasota community, For the most part, Sarasotans have been unusually willing to be guinea pigs for future teachers, com1selors, and researchers. Sarasota has its share of special schools, day care centers, mursing homes, and community guidance clinics, in cluding Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where students have enjoyed working in Sarasota's storefront guidance center which also operates a Rap Line and others have found jobs teaching young prisoners at a nearby vocational school. One LIVING OFF CAMPUS Living off campus costs as much it not mcn:e.than living on campus, making the dec1s1on to move out something other than Q f f economics. On the other hand the extra energy of cooking your food cleaning three .rooms. instead of cn{e is equalled by a of mdependence, invaluable and the co-zy sanity of a famil-lar envirOnment. If you're paying as much or less than you would on campus, you probably have more room, but more roommates The e as.iest way to find a place to live l!l to move mto a house that a student is leaving. But if you're into cleanliness be careful: New College students have a terrible :CPutation for tearing places apart. For tlis reason, weighted by the phenome non lmown as the redneck, landlords can become a tremendous hassle. Neighbors, on hand, can be quite pleasant, and 1ts mce to see people of varying ages every once in a while. CAMPUS student interned wi1h a City Manager and an-sat: on Sarasota

The college, as an institution, defines the meaning of its degree through you and subjects you to institutional standards of quality. Yet, in the final anal5 ysis, your degree only means as much as thP you put into it, the knowledge and you have acquired by working for Jt, and the use to which you put that knowledge when you leave here. The tension between your definition of tho that of the institution, with Jn a of the much greater world in which we exist, becomes the life force of the colleqe.

CONTRACTS AND ISP' s As you go about attending to the details of defining your degree and translating that definition into the day by day, term by term progress of your academic residence, you will find that many professors and students do not share your ideas about the meaning of a degree or the best way to obtain it. The discussion of these disagreements may be frustrating, but it will force you to become aware of the implications of your values concerning the process and purpose of education. You will find, as you develop and justify a program of study at New College, that you are defining not only an education but also a life. POSSIBILITIES IN THE CONTRACT SYS'T"CM, OR, WHY ALL THE The contract system at New College has evolved as an alternative to the restriction of an hourly system as well as to the complete subjectivity of nothing at all. If yoll wish to refer future employers or graduate institutions to work you have done at New College, you should be concerned about the communication of your accomplishments on your transcript. For this reason, and because a lost term means over a thousand dollars down the drain, you should write your contracts carefully and maintain an honest rapport with your sponsor. Again, your "Handbook of Academic Procedures and Regulations" can save you unnecessary ag gravation if you read it. It contains detailed descriptions of how to write a contract, how the contract is certified, and the relationship between youx. contract and your transcript. The Student Academic Status Committee, a faculty committee with student representatives, will review your record if you have either two incomplete contracts or an unsatisfactory contract. An unsatisfactory contrad: results in dismissal or erasure of the term. Two incomplete contracts may result in an allowance of more tin>e to fi. nish as well as renegotiation of the required work, if your sponsor agrees. When a contract is incomplete of a y.ear, it becomes unsatisfactory, but these rules have been subject to much disagreement lately and may change. Some tips on writing your contract: The section of your contract called "Goals" may seem silly, but it can be an excellent justification of why you developed your program as you did. This kind of record of your development is especially nice to have when you are forming your own interdisciplinary major. The section of your contract called "Educational Activities" is where you list, courses, tutorials and projects for which you expect an evaluation from a professor and subsequent transcript credit. Here, you can enter anything you can get a faculty member to sponsor and evaluate. It is important to title special pl'Ojects and tutorials in such a way that they communicate the subject matter accurately on your transcript. If this is impossible, write a paragraph about the project for the Recorder's Office to attach to your transcript. In the "Educational Activities" .;ection and "Certification Criteria" section you can become really creative in the design of your For example, if you are really involved in the subject matter of a course, you may wish to ask the professor who is teaching that course to sponsor a contract in which you develop the weekly topics into a full terms work. Or, perhaps you find two closely related courses whicy you would like to take, but you only have time to do the work for one course. You could make up a title that combines the subject mat ter of both courses, consult with the professors who are teaching them about the appropriate reading, and ?e evaluated by one or both profes.;ors for your work. When you decide upon the certification criteria for your contract, be sure to give yourself plenty of leeway to make mistakes. If you have a change of interest or become sidetracked on a particularly exciting problem, discuss it with your sponsor before the fifth week of the term so that you can change your contract appropriately. Both contracts and ISP's can be as ex citing as your planning makes them. Take lots of time to talk to faculty members about your interests and let them guide you to resources. All you have to do is be specific about what you want, even if what you want is very general.

STUDENT AFFAIRS Dean of Student Affairs Dave Ebert represents the student on an administrative level for every aspect of his/her college life except the academic. His office is responsible for appropriate functioning of student housing, health, activities, recreation, and the Counseling Department. This year Dave is assisted by a staff of students to improve communication and services at the dorm level. Steve Noble, Associate Dean of Student Affairs will concern himself mainly with Student Housing. He is the man to see with your housing problems or ideas for living-learning experiences.

Dave, Steve, and Cheryl are always anxious to talk to students about ideas for improving "student life" so if you have any bright ideas, mention them to someone, for the sake of all of us. Student Health is at the top of Dave's list for improvement this New College has limited health facilities just south of the campus behind the bookstore. Nursie or Fran Lemasters, is in the infirmary from 8:30 AM to 5 PM on Monday through Friday. Dr. Mark comes in from 8:30AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays QDd Thursdays.

Director of Security is Mr. Joseph Jolin, a professional in law enforcement who is seasoned but not hardened. Joe strongly believes that students should play a large role in the security of their campus. To this end, all but two full-time Security officers at the college either are or have been students here All part-time work, foot patrol and Security desk, is covered by students.

B. &G. will repair plumbing and electrical problems if you pick up a work request form in the Student Affairs Office and turn it in to their office. LIBRARY OFFICES: Edmon Low is New College's Librarian, a man with a distinguished history of work and leadership in all related aspects of his field. He's the man to see with ideas about the Library. Pat Bryant is the Reference and Circulation Librarian, who you should see about inter-library loans. Rob Mallet wanders around the back of the library "duplicating. He can get things printed for you in quantity at about 2 a page. PUBLIC RELATIONS: It is the job of the Public Relations Office to dig up all of New College's (and therefore yours and all of the faculty's) accomplishments and make them sound wonderful. Actually, they do a lot more. Where they can help you and you them is through the Speaker's Bureau, which pu1s members of the Sarasota community who request student speakers, performers, etc. in touch with students who enjoy doing those things. Administrators learn to recognize students who are having problems. G,O,D,:-Terry Weber is the Gregarious Over seer of Deployment this year. She will help work grant students obtain jobs on campus as well as process all of the time sheets of students who are employed by New College. The only thing she can't do is give you a W-4 form, which you get from the Personnel and Purchasing Office by showing them your Social Security card. FINANCIAL AID OFFICE: Ken Simcoe, New College's Financial Aid Officer, determines student eligibility for all college-awarded scholarships including National Defense Student Loans and work grants. In addition, he is the man to question about all loans and scholarships which are awarded by other institutions but administered through New College: our trimester system sometimes makes them complicated. DEVElOPMENT OFFICE: The Development Office raises money which is eventually spent on you. While their primary work is fund-raising for the institution, occasionally Bob Drabik, Director of Development, can help you investigate possibilities for funding of your individual projects. Professors and Division Chairmen can sometimes help you with this, t:oo.

NEW COLLEGE BUREAUCRACY Now that you know who they all are, y ou can see how they all fit together. All administrative offices are responsible to the President, who, in turn, is responsible to the Board of Trustees. As a general rule of thumb, faculty decisions which do not require major changes in the administration become effective immediately, and the other decisions are subject to a vote by the Board of Trustees. Students have a great deal of representation and very little power save the final weapon of withdrawal. Their politics are fairly simple-minded: apathy when it doesn't affect them and full-scale revolution when it does. The faculty meeting is New College's real forum and should be checked out at least once. This year's SEC Chair woman, Margee Ensign has the following to say about the SEC: The Student Executive Committee (SEC) is the legislative body of the students. The SEC is composed of ten voting members, the Dean of Students is a non-voting member. Three students are chosen from each "class": three from terms 1-3, three from terms 4-6 and three from terms 7-9. The chairperson is elected at large by the students. Elections are held the third week of each term. There are three alternate members of the SEC; one from each term group. The SEC is responsible for making student codes and regulations, for allocating student funds and for acting on student and faculty requests to its various commftees. In the past, the SEC has sponsored movies, speakers, parties and has furthered various student projects. The SEC receives requests for funding through the Bread Board Committee. Composed of SEC members and students at large, the committee serves for one term. All meetings of the Bread Board are open to students and faculty. The SEC is also responsible for screening prospective candidates and holding elections for the Student Chair. The Student Chair position is held for one year and is funded with student fees. An i:mportant SEC ruling last March was a ban on pets on campus which will begin. -first ternl 1974-75.

YOUR COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITIES New College does not legislate morality: it leav e s that to the Supreme Court. Ev erything that i s not covered by local, s t a t e and federal laws comes under the jurisdiction of the Student E x e cutive Committee anC. the Student Court. T h e Student Code, part of the Student Ccnstitution requires that students respect each other's privacy, refrain fn" carrying o r using weapons, r'"!frain from vandalism, keep pets off and observe the quiet ho ,, h<:>urs are from 8 PM to 0 Al1 Sunday through Thursday .\Ivi to 9 AM on Saturday and Sun -mornings. 'ctors and students may. and, if necessary, request that r-Op>o.: leavo.! if they are not n, "f the New College community or their guests. C ests of student> should registered at the Reception Desk nnd an id.-ntification form, which is issued during registration, should be on the i::""'St1s person at all times. The host, in registering a guest, takes full responsibility for all of the guest's actions. ude swimming has been a controversy for the past three years, at least. For insurance purl .;,..s, nude swimming is banned at the campus pool. Because of difficu..des enforcing this the issue has become moral as well as legal, and you will probably be hearing more about it as the year goe s by. All of the large glass doors in Hamilton Center open to the larger spoce. The seats in the Teaching Auditorium are incredibly hard: take a pillow to the Sunday night movies. F acuity are sometimes difficult to differentiate from students. If you can't tell from the way they look, lock or a briefcase. After that, memorize. HELPFUL HINTS If you have trouble finding a sponsor, try a new faculty member. They aren't as loaded with returning students. Then, consider the professors who are teaching your classes for second term. We have had trouble with rapes on campus. Women should ask student proctors to accompany them across campus a t night. Las t y ear there was a r ape crisis center in town, an d please l e t our S ecurity Office help you if you are raped o r a ss aulted. It i s a goo d idea to use your first term as an indicato r of how much you can do rather than fooling around and starting your college career with an incomplete or unsatisfactory contract This term can be a reference in case you get in trouble next term. If you have any lege! problems, see Joe Jolin in the Security Office. Police have come on campus to bust people who are growing dope. Watch it.

FINDING YOUR WAY ARO'UND New College's hodge-podge layout is not easy on the ordered mind. Its most salient landmark is the Tamiami Trail, or U.S, 41, which forms the boundary between East and West Campus. East of 41 and just south of the camRW is the "Old Motel and the Cam!]ld BoOk Here the Business office an the Nevi ColleJZe office are located to the right Whilethe tDfirmary and the Women's Center occupy the rooms to the left. The Fiscai Office is where you pay your bills, and where, hidden in the back, Charlie Harra broods over the Financial Situation. Even the Pei dorms are not logically numbered, as you can see from the map below. Rehmd the dorms, the swimming .E2!_and handball court are farthest oouth, followed by a number of really classy looking buildings which house our Fine Arts and Maintenance Arts departments. In other words, the ones without signs on them belong to Buildings and Gr01mds and the others belong to the Fine Arts Depart !!l!!!. Gymnastics equipment is stored in the building closest to the handball court. The Hamilton Center complex is the locus af most student activity. Farthest north is a series of classrooms numbered H-1 to H-5. The door after H-5 opens into the Media Center and the Radio St;rtion is located between the two, accessible trom either. Furthest east is the Teaching Auditorium, which is used for large classes, movies, faculty meetings, and various other melodramas. Inside the center itself, you find the Hamilton Center Desk. On this desk is a free telejlhone for student use (no long distance calls please). Behind this desk to the right is the office of your student government (SEC Office) and to the left is the Security Office and the Informa1i"'l Desk Inside the center proper, we have the cafeteria to the left, the Filihbowl straight ahead, the Student Affairs Office to the right of the FiShbowl, the Snack Bar to the far right, and, if you are standing so you can see all of this, you're in the lojge. In the Snack Bar you'll find your mai box (maybe try outside), machines galore, pinball haven, some junky furniture, and the Snack Bar proper. Crossing 41 places you on the Palmer Campus. The Palmer dorms are located in B, C, D, and E buildings and, with the pierc ing logic of all truly first class institutions, are called B, C D and E dorms. A-Building is a potpourri 2 Offices and activity rooms. Downstairs and south is the Off -Campus Study Office, religion and economics /Io fessors and two language Ji'O,fessors. ike Office is there too. Downstairs to the ri t you1ll ind the bike shop just outside the main building, a small Ofrupge, the laundry room, and the newspape1 Upstairs is the Recorder's Office and the Sociology Department. The Natural Sciences Building, to your rightatter crossing 41, actually holds all of the Natural Sciences f acuity. Movinf, from left to right in the new building (you ll re cognize it) we have classrooms, math, experimental psychology, and the main office. The old bUJ.ding shelters from left to right, the comJ: ter, chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and J:!-ysics. The next building to the west and right of the main drag is The Barn. But don't let it fool you. In the main stable, we have philosophy professors and Music Pro fessor John Borg. A philosophy reading room is squeezed in the far west end. Up stairs in the hayloft are a few Social Science professors. The next building to the east is the Social Science Building. The divisional office and several Social Science professors' offices are located here. South Hall is the southernmost building on the bay. The eyesore outside of it is the Development Trailer or The Rock, whiCh has a pecUliar meaning outside of its practical value to campus dogs, which we don't have. The stairs outside of South Hall lead to Drs. Smillie, rraham and Borden. This, of course, was tJr slave quarters. The door under the stairs leads to the Projection Room and Dr. Hassold's office. lf you want to find the Public Relations Office, turn left immediately after by the main door. The Dining Room and Solarium behind it are through the big fancy room and to the left. The Bay Room is the same but to the right. Dr. Knox's office and the stairs can be reached by turning right immediately after entering by the main door. Provost Riley's office is directly upstairs and somewhere in there is the stairway to Musicologist Ron Riddle's tower. Just left of the stairs is the Music Festival Office, and, further down, the light at the end Of the tunnel to your right is President Christ-[aner's Office. Also upstairs are several Humanities professors' offices. The is the mansion just north af o all. The Duplicating Office is downstairs to the far right. Two rooms in the library are used as classrooms: The Pompei Room, located to the right Of the catilogue room, and the South Room, also called the. Hebraic a Room, whiCh is upstairs and all the way through to your left. The powder room is down the hall from the South Room and the john (check out the graffiti) is just south of the duplicating room. Finally, north and east of the library, is another building with a dual purpose. Downstairs is the Admissions Office and upstairs is the Humaruties Ollice. Several Humanities Ji'O,fessors have offices here, too. The easiest way to remember where Humanities professors are located is "Humanities is everywhere. And if you don't believe that, try convincing a mathematician that Hilbert Space isn't beautiful. No buildings are under construction at the present time. We are trying to talk them into building a bar and brothel across 41, but so far the only person who is interested is Lee Harrison, New College's semi-resident capitalist.
