Freshmen Eligible For Outside
Activities In Second Semester


Eligibility rules governing partici-
pation in extra-curricular activities
were announced by the Dean of Stu-
dents' office recently. There is noI
change in the rules as enforced in
previous years.
No freshman in his first semester
of residence may be granted a certifi-
cate of eligibility. He may, however,
be permitted to take part in extra-
curricular activities in his second se-
mester provided he has completed
15 hours of work with at least one
mark of A or B and no mark of less
than C, or at least two and one-half
times as many honor points as hours
and with no mark of E.
Participation in public activity, ac-
cording to the Dean of Students' of-
fice, is service of any kind on a com-
mittee or a publication, or in holding
office or being a candidate for an of-
fice in a class or other student or-
In order to participate in extra-
curricular activities, the student must
obtain from the Dean of Students'
office a certificate of eligibility. This

certificate must be presented to the

This permission to participate in
student activities may be refused
whenever, in the opinion of the Com-
mittee on Student Affairs, or in the
opinion of the dean of the school or
college in which the student is en-
rolled, such participation may be
detrimental to his college work.
Certificates of elegibility for stu-
dents other than freshmen may be
secured if the student has earned at
least 11 hours of academic credit dur-
ing the preceding semester with at
least an average grade of C.
