The Publicity Committee of Student Government presents to you, "The
Campus Crier" —a student nev/sletter in answer to your requests for a
visible voice in campus and student affairs. This newsletter will be
printed monthly and will contain SG news, editorials, monthly columns, and
entertaining ’ features. The Publicity Committee is not attempting
to print a journalistic master-piece, but "The Campus Crier" has been
established for the exchange of student opinions and ideas.
There have been feelings on campus that students are not made aware
of SG happenings—behind comraittee doors. Thus, this publication will
serve as a co-ordinating correspondent. The Publicity Committee will
attempt to gave you news of legislative measures before they are passed so
that you can aid your class senators with your opinions; to give you news
of committee ideas in discussion and of committee decisions; and to serve
you in the most informative way possible of campus activities.
Also we feel that complaints, constructive criticism, and new ideas
have too long been kept behind dorm doors or within small student and SG
groups. It is time for you as students to come forth with your ideas and
present them to the college—the Administration and Student Body—where
they will be received and discussed and may do some good. Therefore, we now
give you an opportunity to participate in written discussion on any subject
dealing with campus affairs. Beginning in the next issue, letters from ..
students will be published. Also, a column will be written bjr Jim Buie,
SG President, in which he will ansvrer questions from students. The Publicity
Committee urges your interest and response.
In conclusion, you are reminded that this newsletter is on trial and
that it cannot be continued without your active support. You are urged to
do your part by reading and discussing the given information and by sending
in your ovm opinions.. You as students have expressed a desire for such a
publication—will you now support it?

President of the Sophomores, is checking on the registration program, and
will make a report to the Senate for a recommendation to the Administration,
! Students are being kept better informed of the Senate's activities this
year through minutes of the meetings which are published bi-weekly on the
Student Government bulletin board. The Senate has also appointed a reporter
who v;rites about the activities for the Maroon and Goid,
Russ Phipps, Chairman of the Orientation Committee, reports that the
Orientation Program of 1962 was a tremendous success. "The best ever,"
says Chairman I’hipps.
One of the particular improvements was the change in registration.
This gave students ample time to get their necessary chest X-I^ay without
having to stand in line. Another attributive factor of registration vras the
assignment of advisors fo3?feach student. The annual pictures were not taken
