Sunday, May 4-5 and took a
close look at St. Andrews stu
dent life in both academic and
non-academic areas. The mem

five committees: academic mat

legislative matters, dormitory
affairs, and an activities com

these committees was based to
an extent upon preference
which ihad been indicated by
individuals earlier last week.
The actual work was done in
these committees in workshop
sessions. There was a chairman
for each committee who direct

his respective committee. The
assembly then discussed each
