'■ARCHIVES^ KERMIT MOORE CELLIST DECEMBER 9, 1960 THE VOICE ^’DIGEST OF STUDENT OPINION” VOLUME 14, NO. 1 FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, FAYETTEVILLE, N. C. SECOND SEMESTER FEBRUARY 1, 1961 NOVEMBER, 1960 From the ... PRESIDENrS DESK In many ways the current school year is very significant in the history of Fayetteville State Teachers College. We are changing from the quarter to the semester systein. We are enlarging the cur ricula to include majors other than elementary education. We have a record enrollment which in turn demands a larger faculty. Our physical facilities are con tinually being improved. Does all of this mean that we have a better college? Certainly it does not. The fact that we are big ger does not necessarily mean that we are better. Our goal is quality not quantity. It takes alert students who exhibit a real thirst for knowledge to produce the at mosphere we w'ant on our campus. I am greatly disturbed when I see students with improper atti tudes toward study and learning. It disturbs me more to see stu dents who think extra-class ac tivities are the most important in college life. Our students are contending for equal freedom and equal oppor tunities, but I see no great de sire to assert our equality when it comes to scholarship and cultural activities. It is past time that we make progress in these areas and that we begin to strive to assume our rightful place in these areas. It is time that we realize that with new privileges/ new freedoms and new opportunities there also come new responsibilities.
