(Editor’s note: The writer is chairman of the Freshman
Advisory Council. The purpose of this council is to aid
freshmen and transfers in their transition from high school,
etc., to the UNC-C way of life.)
On behalf of the Freshman Advisory Council and the
student body, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to tlie
University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The members of
the Freshman Advisory Council and myself hope to make
your transition from high school to college as smooth and
easy as possible.
This year during orientation we have planned some new
and, we hope, interesting events for your participation. First,
today we have planned a picnic and dance. During the picnic
Miss Barbara Harding from WIST radio station will be the
commentator for a fashion show sponsored by Milton’s Cloth
ing Cupboard here in Charlotte. At this event you will see the
latest in fall campus fashions. Later, at the “Boom Boom
Room,’’ you will be entertained by Chester Mayfield and The
Casuals. Refreshments will be served and at intermission
some nice door prizes will be given away.
Wednesday morning will bring more of the orientation
program. First you will be assembled to witness some skits
depicting college life. Next, you will learn the meanings of
the Honor Code and the Judicial Code. Gus Psomodakis,
president of the student body of UNC-C, will speak to you
on the organization of student government and the consti
After the assembly, each of you will be put in groups of
12 to 15 students for discussions of the skits and the topic
“What should I know as a freshman?” These discussion
groups will be led by an FAC advisor. Do not fail to ask your
FAC advisor questions on things which are not clear to you.
The FAC members and myself will be more than glad to
assist you with any problem which may confront you during
the coming year. Also, during registration the FAC will be at
your service again to help you with registering for classes.
Please call on us for any help you may need.
I earnestly hope that each of you will have a most en-
ioyable and fruitful year.
V-P Burgess Plans
To ‘Outlaw Apathy’
By RICK DANCY
Jim Burgess, vice-president of
the student body, has reported
for the fall semester with a long
list of plans which he hopes to
out into action during his nine
Burgess, a successful candidate
on the Student Party ticket last
spring, sees no increase or
decrease in the work load of the
student body vice-president as a
result of changes made last year
in the student body constitution.
These changes shift many of
the duties formerly assigned to
the president to the vice-presi
dent’s schedule. They were
intended to free the president
from his customary overload
and add prominence to the
position of vice-president.
Burgess plans to use his posi
tion as speaker of the legislature
to “insure that the legislature
will become meaningful instead
of a coffee hour.”
Also on tap for legislative
scrutiny will be the judicial
branch. Burgess hopes that a
means will be found to “bring
added prominence and responsi
bility to the student court.”
The vice-president also hopes
... No “Coffee Hour’’
that certain flaws in the stu
dent honor code can be worked
It is Burgess’ personal belief
that the clause stating that the
student "has the responsibility,
but not the mandatory obliga-

Although Dr. Cone is new to
the title she is hardly new to the
duties and responsibilities ac
companying the position. ’The
perseverance and diplomacy dis
played by Dr. Cone during her
struggle to bring a branch of the
Consolidated University of North
Carolina to Charlotte gained her
nationwide fame through a story
in Time magazine.
The 1965 fall session enroll
ment of around 1800 students
marks a 17 per cent increase
from the 1500 students enrolled
for the tall semester last year.
Director of admissions Robert
Grogan expects little or no
trouble in accommodating the
additional students. According to
him, if it was necessary, the
University of North Carolina at
Charlotte could handle as many
as two thousand.
. . . New Title
Students, you now have a
chance to serve your school in a
most notable capacity. The Jour
nal needs people—people to write
stories, people to write headlines,
people to do layout, people to sell
ads, ad infinitum.
The Journal plans to come out
every two weeks first semester
and every week second semester.
To do this we will need more
people than we presently have.
It does not matter whether you
have had experience in newspa
per work. If you have any kind of
inclination toward this field, we
have a place for you.
