For students in serious personal
trouble, or in need of advice on'
academic matters, there are a
myriad of counseling sources,
ranging from residence hall staff-
men to faculty professors to pro-
The University realizes its re-
sponsibility to provide services for
both the short and long-run needs
of students, . but maintains that
the initiative for seeking help
must emanate from the students.
"The University does not believe
in required, compulsory counsel-
ing," a faculty study committee
on counseling wrote in 1958. "lhis
principle rests on the premise that
each student must be given ma-
neuver room to make his own
choices-to be relatively free to
struggle with his educational
problems himself and to resolve
them with or without outside
The counseling agencies on cam-
pus can be roughly, divided into
three kinds: those for academic
counseling, units under the Office
of Student Affairs, and the more
delicate psychological counseling
Each school and college at the
University provides certain per-
sonnel, at the deanship and uro-
fessorial level, to counsel students
on academic matters.
It is hard to generalize about
counseling as practiced in the dif-
ferent academic units, but usually
aid is given to help students ulan
their future courses, make sure
they fulfill their requirements for
graduation, and advise them on
educational opportunities within
the various curricula and the rela-
tionships to career possibilities.
Course selections must be made
through academic counselors; oth-
erwise, students are encouraged to,
consult with them on any matter'

they feel necessary. However, if
the student is having problems
with grades, often a counselor will
contact him and ask him to come
in for a talk.
Some schools assign counselors
to students, while in other units
students are free to choose their
own faculty advisor.
Besides the counseling services
in each school, students desiring
information and advice concern-
ing admissions policies may con-

sional counselors in the Office of

The OSA is concerned with
counseling of any type of personal
or financial situation, excluding
only the purely academic.
Although Mark Noffsinger, a
special assistant to the vice-presi-
dent for student affairs, will han-
dle most of these matters, counsel-
ing services are also available in
the OSA directorships.
The directors of housing, finan-
cial aids and discipline will all
have counseling duties included in
their areas of authority.
other sub-units within the OSA
have counseling facilities.
The International Center pro-
vides specialized personnel to help
ease the cross-cultural impact on
foreign students; the Office of
Religious Affairs counsels stu-
dents with problems involving re-
ligion; the Bureau of Appoint-
ments is ready to guide students
searching for jobs.

Services, whose offices are located
in Rackham Bldg., maintains gen-

needing individual help in reading

The stuent counseling division
gives assistance for emotional and
vocational needs of students. Al-
though difficult or delicate cases
are often referred to this unit from
the OSA, it is not a therapeutic
agency, and if medical problems
are suspected, students are re-

course, there is an irreducible
overlap in these agencies, but be-

BICYCLE CONTROL PROGRAM
1. The primary aim of the bicycle control program is safety-keeping bicycles away from
building exits, plate glass windows, and off sidewalks. To guarantee safety, bicycles
should be parked in the racks provided.
2. To provide added parking spaces it is necessary to keep the racks cleared of "abandoned"
or "stolen" bicycles-at times as many as 300 spaces have been so occupied.
3. In order to keep a careful check on bicycles left in rocks and to comply with the Ann
Arbor City Ordinance, any bicycle on University property (University owned apartments,
residence halls, classroom areas, Medical Center, etc.) must bear a current Ann Arbor
license (expiring 9-30-63).
ASSISTANCE-Troubled students receive psychological counsel-
ing in the student counseling division of the Psychological Serv-
ices Bureau. This-agency, located in the Health Service Bldg., pro-
vides outpatient treatment of mental problems.
4. Unlocked bicycles or those secured by a combination "chain lock" provide an open in-
vitation for bicycle "borrowers or thieves"-last year over 200 licensed bicycles were
reported stolen but were not recovered.
UNIVERSITY BICYCLE REGULATIONS
LICENSING. As a service to students, City Licenses (fee 50c) may be obtained in the
Lobby of the Student Activities Building September 12-14 and September 17-21 (9 a.m.
to 4 p.m.). After September 23, -licenses will be sold only at the Office of the City Clerk
in the City Hall. If in doubt about your serial number, please request help to check it.
REMEMBER TO SAVE YOUR BICYCLE REGISTRATION CARD-IT IS YOUR ONLY
PROOF OF OWNERSHIP IF YOU WISH TO SELL YOUR BICYCLE OR IF IT IS STOLEN.
If a bicycle is lost or stolen, the owner should report the loss as soon as possible at the OFFICE.
OF STUDENT AFFAIRS in the Student Activities Building or to the Ann Arbor Police
Department. In order to file the report you should have your BICYCLE REGISTRATION
CARD which must bear the correct serial number on your bicycle.
If you purchase a used bicycle from a shop or an individual, be sure to get a receipt which
includes the name of the sellor and the serial number on the bicycle which you have
personally checked. Licenses are not transferable.
PARKING. Bicycles must be parked in racks. At times rack space may not be available
adjacent to your classroom building or may be available only after the change of classes.
Parking on the grass off the pavement is permitted only ift all rack spaces in the vicinity
of the building are full. At no time shall a bicycle be parked under a canopy or near an
STORING. Bicycle racks in the classroom areas are for parking and should not be used for
storage. If you live outside the city or at a distance which requires you to leave your
bicycle on campus day and night, you are asked to notify this office (Ext. 3146) or it
may be impounded.
BORROWING. A recent City Ordinance classes the unauthorized use of a bicycle, without
intent to steal, as a misdemeanor. Several students have found themselves serving time
in jail and paying a stiff fine for just such "borrowing."
