Aids Freshmen Week.
The mentor system is completely
integrated with freshman week,
according to Professor Moore. Men-
tors for the coming year are ap-
pointed in the spring, a require-
ment being that the mentor act as
adviser for his group during fresh-
man week. The system is used as
a means of gathering studenture-
actions to freshman week func-
tions, in order that the week may
be improved. This year, opinions
collected from 250 freshmen on
four phases of the week's program,
indicated several ways in which the
general part of the week's func-
tions may be changed for the bet-
ter, and still other changes that
should be made in the engineering
end of the program.
Other duties of the system in-,
elude the study of student applica-
tion blanks, sending of warnings to
those low in their studies, inter-}
views with students, personal let-
ters to parents, and a general study
of the student during his years at'
the University.
