IN MY OPINION....
An Extension of High School—No!
How many of you thought that Gaston College would be
grade 13—high school? I did, until I met the professors. They
hastily assured me that just because GCC is a new institu
tion, doesn’t mean the instructors are new at teaching. They
Avere asked to come here because of their outstanding ability
in this field and we, as students, are extremely fortunate.
So let’s get it in our heads that WE ARE in college and
start acting like it!—BMc
There seems to be some questions in regard to the attendance
policies of Gaston College, and I have been asked to clarify them
Each student is permitted to miss as many as three class hours
without penalty (three meetings of a fifty minute class, two meet
ings of an eighty minute class). L^nexcused absences in excess of
the allotted number will subject the student to an appropriate loss
of quality points.
Students who miss class because of serious illness (verified by
a physician’s note), bereavement, or for equally important reasons,
should bring' the matter to my attention if they wish that the
absence not be included among the three class hours permissible.
Attendance in class when announced tests are given is especially
important. In the event that you do miss such a test you should see
me to g' ( pei iiiission to arrange with your iastructor for a make-up
test. Please note, however, that this does not apply to “pop” tests
or quizzes. Policies in regard to the latter will be determined by the
In closing, I should like to emphasize that regular class atten
dance is highly important and I urge you to attend every one of
your classes and laboratories if at all possible.

supply. The train is slowly moving
along, so get on before it’s too
late. Join the crowd! Everyone has

The Gaston College buildings are almost completed. Most of the
cem.ent is dry and most of the windows are in. In the science building,
sinks, tables, cabinets and faucets have already been installed. Grass
seed has been sown on the front campus and best of all—the parking
lot (without meters) has been leveled.
Twice a week, Gaston College
students set the stage for exciting
athletic events, taking place at
the “Y.” (It’s P. E.)! These su
perb athletes are divided into two
groups; those who don’t tak° to
water like ducks, and those who
Group No. 1 reports to the gym
(this should be fun). Here they
will be exposed to such things as
volleyball, basketball, tumbling,
trampoline, and badminton, under
the leadership of Mr. Neally and
Mrs. Campbell. After a biief(?)
warm up session, the students pro
ceed to tackle the game of volley
ball, (and I mean tackle). Many
have mastered the game, others are
trying their darndest, while some
are fighting desperately to get an
arm out of the net. It is fun.
While Group No. 1 is keeping
the volleyball off the ground, those
in Group No. 2 may be struggling
to keep their heads above water.
This, of course, is one of the swim
