Spring registration requires cooperation between faculty and students by Kitnbcriy Zucker For the next two weeks Johnson Hall will be lined with students sharing a similar feeling—stress. The time has come again for students to register. Se niors began registering Monday, Nov. 7, and the freshman will finish up Nov. 17. However, registration is not only flipping through a blue book and sign ing up for classes. Faculty advisers, student advisers, and the registrar’s of fice all play a role in helping students to sign up for classes. When a student enters Meredith, she is assigned a faculty and student adviser. She belongs to a group with about seven other students. During ori entation, these two advisers lead her through each activity. The most impor tant activity they help her with is regis tering. Kelly Pergerson, a student adviser, feels that helping the freshman and trans fer students with registration is impera tive. She said, “My group of freshmen was very anxious, and they needed some one there to help them to relax. ” On the day of fall freshman orienta tion, the faculty and student advisers accompany their group to the library. During the time that their group regis ters, the advisers are right there. In the spring, the freshmen register in Johnson Hall. While this will be a new experi ence for them, their advisers should be with them once again. The freshmen will have the same faculty adviser until they declare their major, and hopefully they will feel that they can always call on their student adviser for anything. Emily Necessary is a freshman who feels that she has made a very valuable friend out of her student adviser, Tina Sylvester. “I loved my student adviser from the beginning. She was the first person I met when I got to Meredith, and she has been there for me ever since,” said Necessary. Meredith knows what an important part advising plays in each student’s life. Before orientation, the student advisers go through a training period. Christy Jackson, the chief student adviser, and Dean Sizemore led the training. A lot of work had to be done before the fresh men even got here. Dr. English, an English professor, feels that the advising process is defi nitely worthwhile. She has been a faculty adviser for manyyears, andloves getting to know the freshmen each year. Her only concern is that register ing for athletes is difficult. It is hard for athletes to get the classes they need without having to miss them. Other than that she says, “I enjoy advising and having a student adviser. I think both of us are important to the new student because we give two dif ferent views.” Freshmen registration is not the only concern during the registration period. All the other classes feel the stress as well. The worst feeling is standing in line to register and seeing the closed board. Students have all stood there about to register and realize that half of theirclasses are closed. The people that work in the registrar’s office feel the stress too. Meredith has recently switched to a new computer system this year, so hope fully registration will go smoothly this year. Becky Coble and Sally Campbell were hard at work yesterday, and both felt that the first day went very well. Becky Coble said, “The first few days always go well, but as registration draws to a close, the frustration begins. We hate to see the students so upset and stressed when their classes are closed. When they feel stressed, we begin to feel stressed as well.” Everyone in the registrar’soffice feels that registration runs smoother each time, and they hope we get all the classes we need.
