Lew Engman Is Honors Representative

College Roundup

By ROBERT S. BALL, JR'
Lew Engman, '57, former Student
Government Council member and
"campus leader" in general, is a
man whose face betrays a usually
serious outlook both on his own
life and the University community.
Engman is one of two student
representatives to the Honors Con-
vocation Committee and has sery-
ed with five faculty members and
administrators in the planning of
today's Honors Convocation.
Engman, 21 years old and an
economics major, started his
career with SGC on the Adminis-

trative Wing, then was appointed
in February, 195, to fill an SGC
vacancy. He was elected in March
that year.
He thinks SGC has made pro-
gress since it was set up-"much
fore than I thought it would. It's
got tremendous potential."
"Perhaps the biggest difference
between the old Student Legisla-
ture and SGC is that SGC has an
attitude of cooperation with the
University community, which was
lacking at times in SL."
Student Opinion
"SGC is a concept." Referring
to student opinion of thecCouncil
he said, "I doubt if you can find
any concept which is approved by
all the, people."
"Reht now I'm looking forward
to the University of London. I'll
study economics for a year there.
"Then I'll come back for law
school . . . I'm not sure if I'll
come back to the University. Of
course, the army will be here
somewhere.
Not for Him
"I doubt that I'd get into politics
. . . Of course, I'm not sure that
I wouldn't."
Engman has a list of positions
which seems to acknowledge a

CAMPUS LEADER-Lew Engman, former SGC member and one
of two student representatives on the Honors Convocition Com-
mittee, looks over some of the papers connected with his numerous
campus activities.

sense of community responsibility.
"I was on the Literary School
Steering Committee," he said.
This only starts the list: Varsity
Debate Team, SGC Treasurer,
Chairman of the Campus Affairs
Committee.
"Working within this frame-
work, I was invited to sit in on
the Lecture Committee and the
Student Loan Committee."
Other Committees
Engman was also a member of
the Campus Chest Committee,
Student Activities Building com-
mittee and president of.the Young
Republicans. He was chosen for
five honoraries: Phi Beta Kappa,
Druids, Phi Eta Sigma, Phi Kappa
Phi, and Delta Sigma Rho.
"I guess I like to talk," he ob-
served.
"One of my objects was to draw,
a line between extra-curricular ac-
tivities and academics.
Relaxation Necessary
"Buti everybody has to relax,"
he said.
"Springtimes I find time to go
to the golf course. I go a little
more often now.
"Evenings I try to take in as
many campus activities as I can.
Besides, there's usually a party
going on somewhere," he grinned.
"I used to play -the violin. I
enjoyed it until the press of cam-
pus activities started.
Engman comes from Grand

Rapids and has lived there all his
life.
"I'm writing my honors paper
in economics now. I'm trying to
find a happy medium between this
and golf."
Turiing back to the University,
Engman commented, "Many
people think the size of the Uni-
versity is a flaw. I don't think
this is as important as the ratio
of instructors to students. I think
it's a fallacy to say that students
can't get to know the faculty. The
difference is that here the student
must take the initiative."
Engman estimates his grade-
point at "somewhere between 3.8
and 3.9."
"I'm not really sure. It doesn't
pay to worry too much."

opinions of discriminatory practi-
ces in university-approved housing
and the advisability of furnishing
prospective students with informa-

gious policies of university ap-

ceptable" provisions.
