Page 2 THE CATALYST September 24, 1965 EDITORIALLY SPEAKING You u1.1o '-re e 'i.tering New College have before you not only an excellent opportunity for educ?.tion, but also you can help to shape the i1eal which is New College. If we learned during the first year that a college is not built in a year. Many areas of creative endeavor in all phases of college life are open to you. Working togethe4 the two classes can accomplish ve!:y much indeed toward the ultimate of our school. You will =ind, as the Charter Class did, that one of the sources of education is to ba found in your fellow students. On no campus is there a high average of personal achievement and potentia. as there is here. Your collea6ues aLe uniquely valuable --learn from The addition of one first year students to the New College community should provide much of the intellect.1al and stimulation w-hich is so vital to the well-being of a college, (especially a new college) and for which a need was felt rather keenly during the latter part of last year. And so, THE CATALYST adds its voice to the chorus and welcomes the Cla3s of '68 to New College. The sudden death of a friend and fellow st11dent inflicts en us all the sick feeling of shock grief. Trying to use -.:vords to feelings like these is a miserable failure. Our e::e and we connot .. the anguish of his famil]. lve wish had knovm. '!'ed better. He will be remet!'bc:rcrl anc n::tssed. "When a man dies, an \tnkncvm world II passes awey. Jc A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT ELMENDORF The beginning of the experience known as higher education is exciting. It is compounded of expectations and fears. You are looking ahead to many things, some of which will not ever happen. You are apprehensive of other things. Some of them will not happen, either. I welcome you to New College with the hope that you will soon realize that most of your expectations depend on you for their fulfillment and that many of your fears can and uill be allayed only by you., The faculty and staff will ask quite a bit of you. Here at New College it is to a large degree your choice whether or not you respond, whether or not you take advantage of the freedom you a .ce offered and the skills and wisdom of your teachers and counselors. It is my hope that you will maintain the spirit of innovation and the excitement of experimentation which began here just last year. We will try to provide an atmosphere conducive to creative learning. We will expect you to direct your minds and your conscience to the various disciplines set out for you. Few students in this country have the same opportunities you have. If you reject them, you will have dimini.shed yourself. If you accept them, you will have achieved your expectations and lost your fears. It is now your move. John Elmendorf THE CATALYST 2.
