Seminars Provide Course Information
By GAIL BLUMBERG
Sponsored by the Literary Col-
lege Steering Committee, the stu-
dent counselling seminars are de-
signed to provide specific and per-
sonal information on courses and
instructors within the areas of
English, history, political science,
economics and sociology, accord-:
ing to David Passman, '64, com-
The seminars, which are being
held from 3-5 p.m. on Oct. 23 in
Rm. 18, Angell Hall, and on Oct.
24 in Rm. 1007, Angell Hall, will
be manned by qualified upper-
classmen "who have a first hand
knowledge of one of the particular
fields," Passman said.
These seminars are the culmi-
nation of several years of debate
within the committee as to the
most effective way to "institution-
alize the grape-vine" on course
information, he explained.
Run by Students
The present plan is both stu-
dent-conceived and student-exe-
cuted, endeavoring to compile "ac-
curate student opinion in one sem-
inar, so that all may take advan-
tage of it."
Passman noted that the semi-
nars have been constructed in or-
der to act as a supplement to the
regular University counselling
Specific attention will be given
to answering all questions, from
a description of course material, to
the teaching methods of a partic-
ular professor, he said. Personal
advice and suggestions pertaining
to concentration programs in any
of the represented fields will be of-
The areas to be represented were
chosen as being those that cov-
ered the general courses selected
by the majority of students.
"It is assumed that a student
will have sufficient sources of in-
formation for courses within his
specific field," Passman said.
Information will be provided for
a student choosing a course out-
side o" his concentration area. In
addition, "we think lower class-
men will be interested in examin-
ing the scope of courses for a
prospective , concentration pro-
gram," he said.
Prior to this plan, the commit-
tee had considered a course de-
scription booklet..This method has
been used with varying degrees of
success by universities throughout
the country, Passman noted.
The booklet was finally reject-
ed as it would not provide a broad
enough range of student opinion.
In order to obtain well-informed
and qualified students to run the
seminars, lists were taken from
four of the five departments cov-
ered. These lists, issued through
the department head, contained
the names of students, honors and
non-honors, whom the department
considered qualified to judge their
Passman said that in addition
to the six or seven students from
each area, a member of the Liter-
ary College Steering Committee
will be present to assist.
People who have already pre-
registered may still benefit by at-
tending, he observed.
