The College of Pharmacy was, the only professional
school with an enrollment decrease.
This semester 139 students are enrolled compared to
207 last spring.
Kirk Benedict, Pharmacy College, associate dean
explained the decrease. He said the pharmacy program has
changed from one year of pre-pharmacy study and four
years in the College of Pharmacy to two years of pre
pharmacy and three years in the College of Pharmacy.
Instead of counting four classes in the col'ege this year,
he said, three classes are counted as part of the college.
But only two classes were included in the UNL count
because pharmacy seniors now are in Omaha, Benedict
said. He said the pharmacy college joined the University
of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha in 1972 so students
could be nearer the center's medical operations. The other
two classes will move to Omaha after this semester, he
said.

Division evening classes last semester.
Extension Division enrollment figures of 992 for the
current semester are preliminary figures for evening class
students who are not enrolled in any daytime clashes. He
said he is not sure when complete figures will be available.
The most popular night classes are business, English,
journalism and philosophy, Allen said.
McMahon said business classes are the most popular
correspondence courses.
"The working adult wants to improve on-a-job skill.
These are courses that will ring the cash register,"

Navy pilots and flight officers gat that along with
30-day paid vacation; free medical and dental care, full

Prepare for that long sought after civilian job... get
valuable "experience" in aviation and learn what the

McMahon said.
Allen said he thinks most of those taking extension
division English and philosophy courses are working
toward a degree, while those taking journalism are taking
classes of special interest like photography.
Part of the increase in night class enrollment is caused
by the overflow in day classes where enrollment also
has jumped, Allen said.
A trend toward furthering one's education is adding to
enrollment, he said.
Allen said people, especially those working, are turning
toward continuing education to learn about special
interests or as refresher courses to brush up on skills, pick
up new ideas or fill some leisure time.
McMahon said some fields are requiring the employes
to take refresher courses to apply for a new license.
He said correspondence course enrollment has re
mained stable because "the traditional college educators
are slower to accept" the idea that a classroom situation is
not the only way to learn. For this reason, he said, many
are not advised to take correspondence courses.
The actual number of night classes offered has re
mained in the 360 to 370 range for several years, Allen
said.
The correspondence courses and night classes are paid
for almost totally from tuition, McMahon said.
,Allen explained they used instructors from the day
classes who do not have to prepare further for night
classes.
"If had to hire a whole different .teaching staff I
dont think we could survive," Allen said. '
