Advisory Boards
I o
Senior Staff Writer
Students majoring in Eng.
lish and philosophy may
soon be able to consult with
student advisors having
corresponding majors when
they register, according to
John Drodow, president of
the Arts and Sciences ad
visory board.
The student advisor pro
gram is one of a number
of projects being developed
by the University's four
college advisory boards,
which function in the Busi
ness Administration, Agri
culture, and Teachers' Col
leges in addition to Arts
and Sciences.
The boards are made up
of elected and selected stu
dents who present student
suggestions for curriculum
changes to their college and
department heads
'The main idea of the ad
visory board," Drodow ex
plained, "is to have stu
ents begin thinking and
talking about the type of
education they'r getting.
We want to get students in
volved in the decision-making
process of the Univer
sity." Drodow said the student
advisory program is being
planned to give students a
better idea of the courses
and scheduling possibilities
in their major fields. Un
der this program upperclass
students could be hired by
the department in which
they are majoring to advise
freshmen and sophomores
when they register.
This would take some of
the load off the regular ad
visors, Drodow said, and

The Board plans to try
the program on a small
scale at first, he said. If it
is successful it can be ex
panded to other depart
ments in" the college.
Board member Nancy
Eaton said the Arts and
Sciences group is also
working on a senior semi
nar program which would
enable seniors to discuss
their major with professors
of that department.
Students in this program
might meet with their in
structors one or more hours
a week and discuss such
things as relating their ma
jor to career possibilities.
Miss Eaton explained
such a course could be of
fered with or without cre
dit, depending on the de
partment's preference.
Although the Arts and
Sciences board is concen
trating on these programs
at present. Miss Eaton said
the group also plans later
to investigate problems such
as the pass-fail system.
Board member Dave Lan
dis said he hopes the
group's attention can be fo
cused on prob!ems of edu
cational reform. Pointing
out that the senior seminar
idea has actually been dis
cussed for almost a year,
he suggested that there are
more pertinent areas where
the board must work.

areas where the board
should act are the Pass

evaluation program, langu
age houses, and the Free
University, he added.
"The Advisory Boards are
the ones to take the facts
on Pass-Fail to the depart
ment heads to get stronger
faculty support," he said.
"The group should also
support the development of
a new, continuous Honors
Program to replace the
present one which leads
nowhere" he said.
The Teachers' College Ad

number of problems under
consideration. Ed Benin,
Teachers' board president,
said the group will be mak
