leges. In these smaller groups
they could ask questions about
academic work and Universi
ty life in general' They also
finished details of registra
tion. Assisting in the program
were upperclassmen and
some June graduates. Accord
ing to Ross, it was through
the e f f o r t s of these uppei1
classmen that made the pro
gram successful.
The parents' program was
similar to that of the stu
dents. Parents were intro
duced to the aims of the Uni
versity, staff members, and
students. They could ask
questions concerning clothing
costs, rules, and procedures.
Parents saw a television
classroom, and were intro
duced to University history by
Dr. Robert Manley, assistant
professor of history.
The program centered
around giving more personal
attention to students and
their parents than they would
receive at the usual New Stu
dent Week in the fall.
John Aronson, Director of
Admissions, said "The par
ents appeared amazed at; the
personal attention they - re
ceived." 2
The evaluations filled out by
freshmen at the end of '- the
program showed that "they
were quite interested in, t h e

benefit from it," according to

With the present success of
the orientation program, Ross
said that by next year the-ad-ministration
hopes to drop all
but about a day of New Stu
dent Week in favor of the
summer program.
"The program is designed
to make the transition from
high school to college1 a
smoother and more effective
one for both students and par
ents," said Ross.
