IMPRESSIONS OF BISHOP TUTTLE SCHOOL By a New Student The outsider casually looking at the Bishop Tuttle School sees an attractive beautifully constructed build ing in which, she is told, a group of young women live and learn. Ihe new student, however, is impressed with a great deal more than the beauty of the building which is to be her new home. Immediately upon arrival, she is given such a Avarm, hearty welcome by the faculty and the students that she instantly regards herself a member of a great family—the Tuttle family. The friendliness of the people at the Tuttle School is not only the impression one forms on entering. A student comes to this school to learn something, and she soon discovers that the entire atmosphere is con ducive to study; consequently all apply themselves to their work. Aside from study all students have the opportunity to participate in other activities, educa tional and religious. The striking thing about the at titude of the Tuttle students is that they evidence a definite willingness to take part in voluntary as W'ell as required activities. These impressions may seem few and of no con sequence, but an individual in any new environment knows that such an atmosphere assists one to make ad justments easily. So, the way people are greeted here and the manner in which students go about their various duties, along with the opportunities offered for re ligious, educational and cultural development, have made a favorable impression on all the new students entering the Bishop Tuttle School.—A.
