THE GUILFORDIAN Admissions Rate Normal By EVAN GILLESPIE John Bell, Guilford College Director of Admissions, is confident the college will not suffer a drastic decrease in enrollment or services next Fall. *"*■ T* i ii .(J John Bell Business Majors, Earn Credit and Money Persons with interests and abilities in the fields of finance and advertising have an opportunity to earn money as well as academic credit. The position of Business Manager for the Guilfordian can provide a student with experience in business techni ques and a 10% commission Residence Staff On Friday, April 18, the selection process for staffing the residence halls for the 1975-76 academic year was completed. Six residence hall coordinator's positions and eleven residence hall intern's positions were available. The Housing Office had received applications from fifty-five applicants. The Housing Staff for next year is as follows: RESIDENCE HALL COOR DINATORS Milner Hall - Sukhan Kim English Hall - Sheridan & Rose Simon Binford Hall - Don & Pat Yelton Shore Hall - Laura Donaldson Bryan Hall - Open Hobbs Hall - Diann America Howland In an interview on April 14 Bell, answered questions concerning his outlook for the coming year. Mr. Bell was extremely willing to answer questions and to provide information. There were two topics around which our discussion centered: enroll ment for the coming semester, and the financial status of Guilford College. On admissions, Mr. Bell stated that the Admissions Office would not know the actual number of new students until late May. He added that although the applications were slow in coming at first, the rate at which they have been received in the past few months nearly makes up for the earlier deficit. While there is no expected increase in enrollment, one must take into account the fact that there was on ads. As a bonus, the Business Manager will receive 20% after the first SISOO. Up to four hours of academic credit may be earned. This is an outstanding opportunity to bring together the academic and practical sides of education. To apply, call 294-0883. Although the interns were selected, their location has not been determined.

Ci*m r M.C. 174f a 20 per cent increase from the 1973-74 year to this one. Another thing which may surprise a few people, is that there are more students attending Guilford now (970) than there were during the fall semester of last year (961). Every year Guilford has had between 85 and 91 per cent of its present non-senior student body return. If 85 per cent come back in the fall only 340 new students are needed for the college to operate in a similar fashion as this year. As far as the financial status of Guilford is concerned, although Mr. Bell admitted he was not an expert on the subject, he summed it up by saying, "Guilford College has never once in its existence operated in the red." It is one of the few schools in the country which can truthfully say this. Last Issue Due to the coming of exams, the exhaustion of budget and staff, and the epidemic of spring fever, this will be the last issue of the Guilfordian for this semester. Final Budget Passed The Community Senate, on the night of April 16th, passed with a wide margin the final budget for the academic year, 1975-1976. This Final budget differs from the proposed budget which appeared in last week's Guilfordian due to the addition of SSOO to 8.A.5.1.8., SIOO to 1.R.C., S2OO to Intramurals, and SIOO to S.P.S. Also passed was the motion to start a New Founders Fund. This fund will be controlled by the Senate and will be used to pay for equipment to go into the new building, i.e. sound system, light system, recrea tion room items. Decisions about the actual spending of this fund will be made by the Senate next fall. by Cindy Buxton ,x jfflvKsyk II EyjjijiJ.;-: / j Academic Dean, Cyril Harvey New Faculty Beginning fall Semester next year, Guilford College will be having six new professors in the Fields of Accounting, Sociology, Psych ology, Economics, and Biol ogy. The reason for hiring these new professors is because four current profes sors are leaving and the Accounting and Economics Departments each need one more professor. Jerry Godard, Academic Dean of Warren-Wilson Col lege, has been hired in the Psychology Dept. Godard first came to Guilford in 1966 as Assistant to the President and later served as Executive Dean. He was a very popular professor at Guilford and resigned in 1973 to accept the oositon at Warren-Wilson. The Biology Dept. will have Frank Keegan as an assistant professor. Keegan is from Queens College of City Univ., N.Y. and is a graduate fellow. He has received all his degrees from Queens and City Univ. The positions in Sociology, Economics and Accounting have, as of presstime, not been Filled. But* Cyril Harvey, Academic Dean, feels confi dent that those positions will be filled hopefully by the end of May and 1 deFinitely by fall semester of next year. The process used in hiring these teachers is basically a personal one. The process is: advertising in two or April 22, 1975 three national educational journals; contacting people Guilford knows who might be interested in a position; and unsolicited applications that are sent in constantly and kept on file. The Chairman of the Dept. needing a position filled, usually takes around 1 or 2 months to gather all the names of prospective appli cants. This list, which runs from 20 to 120 names, is then narrowed down to eight or ten. The chairman, along with Dean Harvey, looks over the applicant's resume and selects 2 or 3 of them to be invited to Guilford for personal inter views. The applicants then visit Guilford and have interviews with the President, /Asst.* to the President, Academic Dean, Chairman of the Dept. they have applied for and the Faculty Committee. Hopefully they will also have a chance to meet with some of the students and really get an idea of what the Guilford College Community is like. Dean Harvey explained that the reason this process is so complicated and intricate "People make the difference at this college. And, we try to make a maximum effort to get good people here at Guil ford." Guilford also tries to get professors with a national as well as regional background for a more diversified learning experience.
