Crowded Chemistry Classes
Necessitate Swing-Shift Labs

Campus Highlights

Midnight oil is being burned, lit-
erally as well as figuratively, by the
overflow enrollment in introductory
chemistry courses.
The 1,750 students in these courses,
representing an increase of almost
double the pre-war peak, are only an
example in the whole story of over-
crowding in the literary college, where

School faculty who will address the

tion scheduled to start Monday in
Atlantic City.

pressure on facilities for instruction
in basic sciences has been particu-
larly, intense.
Everything is double in the Chem-
istry Building nowadays, with stu-
dents working on experiments as
teams of two rather than individu-
ally. Many of these students do their
laboratory work in one of the twelve
night laboratory classes which have
been organized to accommodate the
overflow from day classes.
Extra Lockers
Between classes, students squeeze
through the halls between rows of
extra lockers necessary for the ex-
perimental equipment required by
each student. Three hundred of
these lockers are Army surplus metal
lockers in which students store equip-
ment not in use.
The crowded situation will be
greatly relieved when an addition to
the Chemistry Building, now under
construction, is completed sometime
in 1948.
Graduate Students
This fall there are 115 graduate
students in chemistry, 40 of these act-
ing asdpart-time teaching fellows.
They direct laboratory work and
thus make possible the instruction of
the record enrollment in introductory
courses. All lectures are given by
regular members of the faculty.
The increased enrollment 'of grad-
uate students has been noted with
gratification by several members of
the chemistry department faculty.
