Student YM
Plans 'Chats'
With Nil Profs
The student YMCA is planning
a series of "fireside chats" with
University professors, according
to Bob Martel, cabinet member.
The "chats would probably en
tail students visiting professors
at their homes for an evening and
discussing not only school sub
jects, but any topics of general
interest," Martel said.
"The purpose of the sessions
would be to bring the students
cloer to the faculty and let them
realize that professors are not
there just to give them down
slips but are actually interested
in them and their problems," Mar
tel explained.
He went on to say that such
"chats" had proven successful on
other campuses and the YMCA
was interested in trying them out
at the University.
Anyone interested may attend
the YMCA meeting Wednesday at
4:30 p.m. in the Union, he said.
