Students From Other Colleges
Attend Summer School Here
by Ijiiida Seale.s
Eleven students from other
colleges who decided to “make
hay while the sun shines” are
enrolled in Winston-Salem State
College’s summer school pro
gram, taking courses from World
Geography to Adolescent Psy
The students are Queen Esther
Brame, Patricia Hooper, Oveda
Carr, Claudette Cook, Robert
Peebles, Bobby Wilson, Emma
Edwards, Naomi Largent, Olivia
Campbell, Alice Griffin, and De-
loris Hairston. They attend va
rious colleges, Bennett, Morgan,
North Carolina College, Eliza
beth City State Teachers College,
Southern University, Virginia
Union, Virginia Seminary and
College, Bluefield State, and
Johnson C. Smith University.
Their reasons for coming to
WSSC are many. Miss Hooper,
a rising senior at Bennett Col
lege, benefited from last sum
mer’s program, and decided to
return. Others who are natives
of Winston-Salem, or who visit
here each summer, took advan
tage of the courses offered.
Although one student said that
“summer is definitely not the
time for studying,” all students
agreed that the classes are quite
interesting. Miss Largent, senior
at Bennett, admitted that some
times a class may become rou
tine, but pointed out that stu
dents at this level of education
should be self-motivated.
Miss Cook, a student at Mor
gan, realized that WSSC’s cur
riculum has changed and that
“it isn’t easy,” as some may have
As for the social life at State,
most of the students felt that
the planned activities succeeded
in preventing boredom. Picnics,
shuffleboard, mixers, and nights
for swimming and bow'ling, w'ith
special rates, have been arranged
by the faculty. Perhaps this was
the reason Miss Brame, from
Bluefield State College, said that
WSSC is like “one big family.”
Others said that the students
here are friendly, more so than
Oegree seekers Daisy Roland and Harry Lewis.
