ARCHIVES, SUMMER SCHOOL June 6 — July 15 THE VOICE 'DIGEST OF STUDENT OPINION” FIRST SEMESTER September 13, 1960 VOLUME 13, NO. 2 FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, FAYETTEVILLE, N. C. APRIL, 1960 From the ... PRESIDENrS DESK As the end of another school year approaches there are many things that should give you food for thought. As you look around, you will note that many of your friends who were here in Sep tember are no longer in college. In view of the fact that you are fortunate to be here, you might well consider whether you have made the best possible use of your time. In your study this term have you merely tried to memorize facts so as to get a passing mark or have you read and studied and learned to evaluate facts? Unless you have learned to think criti cally you have not made the pro gress normally expected of a col lege student. Fayetteville students will not be able to hold their own in the competitive world after gi'aduation unless they leam while still here to apply to certain standards of their own to their reading, their study and their investigations. One cannot begin to call himself edu cated unless he has learned to judge the degree of his own com petence, the degree of his own mastery of subject matter, the de gree of his own facility of ex pression. If you have not already done so begin now to evaluate your achievement and your pro gress. You should never be con tent with a low level of achieve ment or low standards in general.
