All three of the University's
en's residence halls-West Quad,
ast Quad and South Quad are
perated under this plan. Fletcher
:all, a smaller dorm, is also un-
er the plan.
THE WOMEN'S residences hare
similar system of counseling,
onsisting of graduate counselors
ssigned to specific dormitories.
'he number of students to eacn
ounselor varies from house to
ouse depending on the size of
he house.

AT THE OUTSET of orientation
week, all incoming freshmen and
sophomores are assigned in groups
of 20 to 25 to an academic coun-
selor, who helps them choose their
courses.
Although most of the students
have planned out a tentative
program, they frequently elect
subjects for which they are not
eligible. It is the job of the aca-
demic counselors to iron out any
such difficulties..
Regular counselors 'are also pre-
sent at registration to heip stu-

dents with
that might

unforeseen "conflicts"
arise in classifying.
* * *

AS SOON AS the semester be-
gins, the academic counselors hold
interviews with those students
who they fear have had inade-
quate preparation for the subjects
they have-elected. If the student
is having trouble in maintaining
the level of the course, an adjust-
ment is made in his program.

include an invitation to come in
for an interview.
The same procedure is used
with unsatisfactory (D or E) mid-
term grades. These grades, unlike
the five-week marks, however, are
sent home, and the office of the
counselor is often beseiged with
letters from anxious parents.
In the second semester of the
freshman year the same pattern
is followed, but in the sophomore
year, students are "on their own"
and the chief job of the 'counse-
lors is approving their elections.
The office of the academic

counselors is located in Rm. 1210,
Angell Hall.
* * *
WHEN THE STUDENT has
completed his sophomore year, his
records are transferred to the of-
fice of concentration advisers, Rm.
1006 Angell Hall.
Like the academic counselors,
the major job of the concentra-
tion advisers is to help the stu-
dent see that the requirements
in his field of concentration are
filled. However, the advisers do
not tell the students what cours-
es to elect.

It is the responsibility of the
student to see that his elections
program takes in all the necessary
courses,
* * *
STUDENTS UNCERTAIN of the
field in which they would like to
major can get advice and sugges-
tions from their counselors. Upon
choosing a field of concentration,
they make appointments with the
advisers in that field.
Supplementing the academic
counselors is the Bureau of Psy-
chological Services, in the old
ROTC Building between the

Union and the Administration
Building, which aids students
in the field of vocational guid-
ance and the evaluation of spec-
ial psychological problems.
* * *
STUDENTS ALSO participate in
the work of counseling along aca-
demic lines.
A program of student advisors,
composed of concentrates in the
various fields of the literary
college, the business administra-
tion school. and* the education
school is held during the early
part of orientation week each

semester, under the sponsorship
of the Student Legislature and
the literary college.
FURTHER supplementing the
counseling plan, the mental hygi-
ene division of the Health Serv-
ice assists students in an entirely
confidential, friendly manner, to
correct faulty social adjustments,
to acquire proper study habits,
or to overcome worries over per-
sonal and family troubles tvhen
such situations are interfering
with normal success in their
studies.

At the end of five weeks,
grades are mailed out to all
freshmen by the counselors, who
