    Chancellors Welcome
It is difficult to write a fitting, single salutation for
all of you who are beginning Summer Session work at
the University.
For many of you, the Summer Session amounts to a
third semester; another step in the year's study. For
others it is a return to the interrupted task of adding to
your store of education and professional training. For a
few it marks the beginning of college. Only a minority
of you are here for the first time, and to you, on behalf
of all of us, I want to extend a special welcome. We are
very pleased to have you with us.
There may have been a time when a Summer Session
according to popular notion was a kind of appendage to
the "regular" school year. That notion, if it was ever
widespread, has all but disappeared. Summer Session
work is not "irregular" or casual. You will find the qual
ity of Summer Session instruction to be first-rate. Those
in charge of our summer program have endeavored to
make these weeks especially helpful, stimulating and in
teresting through the use of special events, con
ferences, and lectures by visiting authorities in various
fields. In cooperation with the Union, the Department of
Music, and other campus agencies, a series of programs
has been provided to give you many pleasant hours of
relaxation and enjoyment. We want you to have some
fun along with your work.

Everything possible has been done to make the
campus attractive and comfortable. When the days are
not too warm, may we suggest that you stroll about the
campus and jiote its many beauty spots. The beautiful
trees, shrubs, and grass remindsus of the fact that Ne

The University is proud of its new air-conditioned
classroom buildings and its wonderful new air-conditioned
library and Student Union. We suggest that you utilize
the Student Union to the fullest, including the book-nook,
the music center, and the game rooms.
Together students and staff can make the 1956 Sum
mer Sessions at the University of Nebraska the finest in
the history of the institution. Your suggestions for im
