New Students Get Welcome “Welcome” was the password for the week of September 12-17 as the sophomore class and the facul ty of Wesleyan College initiated the first orientation program to be held on the new campus. Some 130 new students participated in the week of fellowship and training. Two-fold Purpose “Orientation week serves a two fold purpose,” stated College Pre sident Thomas Collins. “It furnish es a new student the best intro duction inito the college communi ty, and it helps him know the citizen he is expected to be, as well as learning what the college has to offer him.” Another purpose of an introduc tory week is so that the ooUege may know the abilities and inter ests of each student. This is the reason for the testing. These tests offer a good basis for counseling and advising the new Wesleyan student. Termed Successful From both vantage points, the faculty sta^f feel that the orienta tion program has been a real suc cess this year, President Collins said. Student Government Association President Vann Massey spoke on the success of the social aspects of orientation week: “From the social viewpoint, 1 believe that the orientation pro gram has been very successful in that it has afforded a variety of activity in which every student could participate. It is also the Wesleyan spirit, that everyone is important to the community, which has made this week successful.” Committee Responsible “A great deal of the success,” Massey continued, “can be attri buted to the hard-working Orienta tion Committee which spent many hours in preparation. We kntw now that improvements can be made and with the help of the present freshmen class we shall try even harder to have a better program next year.” Friday, September 15, was re gistration day for members of the freshman class. Sophomores, transfer and special students were registered on Satur day, September 16. Activities of Orientation Week were climaxed Sunday afternoon, September 17, with the opening worship convocation. Classes for all students began Monday morning, September 18.
