Dorm Improvement Souh.t

Across Campus

As an experiment in improving
the dormitory living experience,
the University has grouped to-
gether, in three residence hall
houses, a number of students tak-
ing many of the same courses.
This pilot project, initiated
three years ago, involves Greene
and Hinsdale Houses in East
Quadrangle, and Little House in
Mary Markley.
Four Differences
George Smith, present head of
the project, cites four ways it
differs from regular dormitory


1) Scheduling arrangements
have been made so that students
living in these houses are takingt
many courses together. "The

'beneficial" or "very beneficial."
The pilot project was originally
suggested by Prof. Theodore M.
Newcomb of the psychology and
sociology departments. The idea
was presented for approval to the
literary college executive commit-
tee. The project presently includes
about 200 students. Thirty class-
room sections have been reserved
for pilot project students this,
Selected at Random
From the students accepted to
the University, a group is selected
at random and invited to partici-
pate in the project. Since the
program is operated on a volun-
tary basis, "only those students
who are interested in the idea and
expects to benefit from it will join
and help in its success," Herbert
C. Sigman, assistant in the fresh-
man and sophomore counselors
office explains.
In selection of courses, students
are encouraged to choose class-
room sections set aside for the
pilot project students, but they
are free to elect what ever courses
they want, Sigman says.
Teachers for pilot project class-
es are selected through communi-
cation with the various academic
departments. Hopefully, o n 1 y
those interested will volunteer to
teach a section, he adds.
Feel Favorable
The instructors in pilot project
courses are also very favorable
towards the program, Sigman
says. They feel it is much easier
to have a. class discussion among
students who already know each
The students are more enthusi-
astic and the teachers report no
greater absences or other disci-
plinary problems than with non-
pilot project students, he explains.
An ad hoc committee from the
literary college runs the project.
Chaired by Newcomb, it includes
Eugene Haun, director of Univer-
sity residence halls, and Profs.
Harlan Lane of the psychology de-
partment, Lawrence Slobodkin of
the zoology department, Arlen
Brown of the mathematics depart-
ment, Stuart Zellini, director of
East Quad, and James Doremus,
director of Markley.
Other schools, such as Yale and
Michigan State University, also
have some type of pilot project.
Their students take a common
curriculum, but under a much
more controlled a type of program
than the one offered here, Sigman

VISTA, a domestic version of
the Peace Corps, is not being de-
luged with applications as its pro-
totype was when it was formed
three years ago.
Now in its second month of
operation, VISTA has received
more than 3,000 letters of inquiry
and 745 preliminary applications.

its second month had received

nearly one-third are over 46 years

President Kennedy's creation of
the Peace Corps in 1961 may ex-
plain the greater initial response
it received.
Unlike VISTA, which is a part
of the Economic Opportunity Act
of 1964, the Peace Corps was not
put in a larger legislative package.
