To Begin




Dean Lloyd To Begin 19th Year
Of Friendship, Service for 'U'


. . .

Coed Leader
uides, Molds
More than being an office-hold-
er as the University's Dean of
Women, Michigan's Alice C. Lloyd
had been for almost a quarter of
a century related to everything
women students on this campus
have done.
She has been interested in their
welfare in every respect since the
time she herself was a coed here,
a member of the JGP cast and an
outstanding student. And she has
retained since that time the basic
interests of the coed.
Born in Ann Arbor, Dean Lloyd
comes from a family of University
of Michigan people. Her father,
Alfred Lloyd, was a professor of
philosophy here, later becoming
the dean of the graduate school
and acting president of the Uni-
MISS LLOYD herself was grad-
uated from the University in 1916.
She completed her training for
nursing work at St. Luke's Hos-
pital in New York, traveled in
Europe with her family and served
as a social service worker with the
Wayne County Juvenile Court be-
fore coming to take her position
as Dean, of Women in 1930.
While in school she could have
been classed as an "ideal stu-
dent" being a member of Alpha
Lambda Delta, Phi Beta Kappa,
Phi Kappa Phi, Mortar Board
Sorosis and later the Ameri-
can Association of University
a. Women.
Her work has not been limited,
however, to the sphere of Michigan
activities since she has worked
with women in many other fields
including a commission to advise.
regarding women in the U.S. Navy
during the past war, for which
she received a certificate of ap-
preciation from the Navy.
* * *
Alice" include the board of direc-
tors of the Kingswood School, the
Chamber of Commerce and the
Ann Arbor Dramatic Season of
which she was a founder.
Known all over the country
for her forthright ideas on social
issues and tolerance, Dean Lloyd
at Michigan has done everything
possible to strengthen and pro-
mote women's student govern-
ment including an active sup-
port of the Michigan League.
She has been an integral part
of all Michigan women's activi-
ties and functions.
She has believed in nothing but
the very highest standards of
ethics and has been interested not
in pushing students into certain
things but in getting them to see
the necessity of actions and of
thoughts themselves.
More than a dean, she has been
a friend to every Michigan coed,
and an inspiration.

Advisors Slated
To Aid Coeds
In Dormitories
Graduate Students
To Guide Activities
With the opening of the new
women's dormitory and increased
opportunities for housing, the
Office of the Dean of Women has
planned a new system of residence
counselors to better acquaint stu-
dents with the opportunities of
a large university.
Going into effect this fall, the
counselor system will provide each
co-ed with a personal advisor who
will be able to coordinate her ac-
ademic pursuits with social and
cultural aspects of campus life.
all fields, the counselors will be
graduate students who will advise
not only individuals, but also
committees from the various dor-
mitories in planning social func-
tions and dormitory events.
Although their task will not
be academic, the counselors
will be able to aid coeds in car-
rying out advised study pro-
grams. Living in the dormitories,
they will have the advantage of
being able to discuss with resi-
dents the type of problems that
are discussed between members
of the same housing family.
Counselors will be informed on
all student organizationsrand ac-
tivities and willbe able to pass this
information on to residents as
well as advise them in these fields.
