exceptional educational, cultural and recreational opportunities

program so that the next several weeks will be truly profitable
and enjoyable ones for you.
Two hundred faculty members are kept busy during the
summer providing the needed instruction for all students and
the supervision of graduate students. Of this number, 37 are
visiting faculty members. These visitors bring to the University
campus the experience of educational institutions in about a

provide a rich environment for learning.
The Student Union serves as the University center for recre
ation, service and social development. Union activities during
the summer cover a wide scope from lectures, seminars and
book reviews to movies, dances and a variety of games. OI
