To Guide Orientation'Week Activities

. .freshman chairman ... transfer chairman

To academic, hard-working Philip
E. Bursley belongs much of the credit
for developing Orentation Week into
the Institution it has become at
Professor Bursley, brother of Dean
Joseph A. Bursley, and assistant pro-
fessor of French, took over the Ori-
entation ;Program in 1929, after the
germ of the scheme had been planted
at the University three years.
The idea originated with President
Clarence C. Little, who came to the
campus in 1925. The plan had been
developed at the University of Maine.
A Tentative Plan
In 1926 a tentative plan was put
into operation, with around 40 coun-
selors, and a full seven-day program.
Three years later Professor Burs--
ley became director of Orientation
Period. At this time the program
was only for freshman students, but
a few years later, with the assistance
of the League, a plan was developed
for an Orientation period for women
transfer students. Two years later
the Union took over the program for
men transfer students.
Since that time the scheme has
progresseda great deal, both for in-
coming freshmen and for transfer
students, development into a Michi-
gan tradition. Orientation Week
gives all new students a real chance
to get to know their cambus, to be-
come acquainted with many of their
own classmates.
It's A Man's Job
And all this the result of an idea
brought to Michigan 16 years ago by
President Clarence C. Little, the work
of Prof. William Frayer as Orienta-
tion head until 1929, and Professor
Bursley's work since then.
It's a full-time job, or would be
for any other man. There are fresh-
men and transfer applications all
year around, questions and hundreds
seeking advice. But Phil Bursley
fills the role more than satisfactorily,
and finds time, too, to teach French
and be one of the most popular pro-
fessors on campus.
