The directory has been delayed
because many changes had to be
made in it, Harmon said.
Changes included telephone
numbers, individual listings, titles,
and campus and personal infor

Robert Peake, associate direc

volume of necessary information
makes it difficult to get the
permanent directories out early in
the school year.

students' numbers," he said.

"The students need something to

The campus directory does not
cost the University any money,
