INTERNATIONAL ORIENTATION:
Center Greets Foreign Students

By ARLINE LEWIS
Last week, after gathering to-
gether its collective energies, the
International Center began a pro-
gram to introduce over 300 newly
arrived foreign students to univer-
sity living in the United States.
The orientation program, which
started at the airport and rail-
road station where incoming stu-
dents were greeted, included coun-
seling service, teas and evening en-
tertainment.
Groups of foreign students, who
had already spent time at the
University, waited at transporta-
tion depots for the spasmodic ar-
rivals' of newcomers who were tak-
en to the International Center.
Counseling Service
At the Center, Robert Klinger
and his two assistants, Russ Han-
son and Bill West, interviewed all
new international students and of-
fered counseling services.
Immigration problems and mon-
ey loans were discussed, and many
working permits were issued to
those students who must find em-
ployment.
Afterwards," the students con-
sulted with Margaret Mead, Direc-
tor of Housing at the Center, in an
attempt to find a place to live.
Rooms Scarce
By the end of the week, Mrs.
Meads list of available rooms,
which had been put at the dis-
posal of arriving students, was de-
pleted with newcomers still ex-
pected.
Students who arrived early
enough to choose rooms, were driv-
en through the campus area on
inspection tours by members of
the Center.
Socially, the International Cen-
ter tried to keep their new people
busy from morning until night.
Coffee was served from 10 a.m. to
noon and tea from 2 to 5 p.m.
every day in the recreation room
where newcomers were encouraged
to meet old students and each oth-
er.

Store Donates Prints
This service was started nine
years ago when a large Detroit de-
partment store gave the University
400 art prints. A special fund was
set aside to frame and enlarge the
collection.
