An Excellent Opportunity (Vol. 1, Issue 9)

Reports that the Curriculum Committee is ready to function will undoubtedly be welcome news to the many who have been disappointed in the past on the ineffectiveness of their petitions to the Administration for additional courses. 

As announced elsewhere in this issue, the purpose of the committee will be to acquire those courses which a sufficient number of students have requested and which are of a vital nature. Another aspect of the committee’s work will be to arrange for the hours of these courses with the Administration whenever any difficulty arises in fitting them into the allotted college hours.

By the formation of such a committee, Student Council has recognized a chronic cause for student unrest and has devised the best means possible to alleviate any further disappointments.

But its successful operation depends enormously on student co-operation. The committee must have enough time to discuss fully all petitions and particular cases with the authorities. For that reason, we cannot urge too strongly those students interested in new courses to draw up their respective petitions at once. Hand them in to any member of the committee, and the matter will be taken up at the first possible opportunity with the Administration. The Curriculum Committee promises no results unless this bit of effort is forthcoming from the student body. 

So to students concerned, earnestly we advise: a long-missed and excellent opportunity is here—don’t fumble it!
