Old school registration

Panic over registering for spring,
summer, and fall classes is building as
registration dates open up. But student
frustration over registering for classes is
nothing new.
Now, most students' concerns center
around trying not to get stuck in a Friday
class or with a professor who has a hor-
rible rating on ratemyprofessor.com. How-
ever, students at the University inthe early
1970s didn't have the luxuries of Internet
rating sites or online registration.
Up until 1975, students registered
for classes in the Waterman Gymna-
sium which stood next to the Chemistry
Building before it was torn down. Regis-
tration was done on paper, on tables set
up throughout the building, according to
a series of articles in The Michigan Daily
in April1982.
Douglas Woolley, associate regis-
trar for personnel and operations, told
the Daily at the time that students were
forced to spend much of their day regis-
tering for classes.

"Students used to camp out in front of
Waterman at about 6 a.m. every morn-
ing," Woolley said.
The entire student body would gather
outside of the gymnasium, waiting in
line until registration opened up later in
the day.
Course sign-up was organized by
department and there was no seniority
system or alphabetical scheme. In order
to register for a class, students had to run
from table to table getting a card for each
class they wished to enroll in, accord-
ing to the articles. Students knew a class
was full when there were no more cards
available for the course.
In 1975, University administrators
implemented Computer Registration
Involving Student Participation - com-
monly known as CRISP - to make the
registration process easier. According
to the article, the system was the first
online terminal-based system used by a
major university.
In April 1982, Woolley also told the

Engineering junior Thomas Ward was one of the first students to register for classes in 1982.
Daily that administrators were hoping Purdue University and Ball State Univer-
the system was going to"make registra- sity to create similar systems, according
tion as comfortable as possible." to the articles.
Registration was done through CRISP While CRISP cut down on a lot of

By 1982, CRISP had inspired other
universities like the University of Iowa, - KAITLIN WILLIAMS
