Students who plan to enter the
School of Business Administration
when they become juniors can
now enroll in a new pre-business
curriculum in the literary college.
The new program, effective this
fall, offers advantages for busi-
ness administration students simi-
lar to those now available to en-
tering freshmen who plan to take
law, medicine or dentistry.
The new curriculum makes it
possible for the pre-business stu-
dent to keep in close touch with
the school while actually enrolled
in the literary college. He will
take much the same courses as the
other literary college students ex-
cept that he is required to take
economics and is not required to
take a foreign language.
