Wlusic Groups JHake
Plans
Chorale and Ensemble,
the two vocal groups of St.
Mary’s have selected their
members and officers for this
year. Chorale, a group of
approximately 30 girls, gives
concerts on campus
throughout the year. The
officers are: Sally Davis-
President, Beth Nufer-
Secretary, and Elizabeth
Fuller-Librarian.
Ensemble is a select vocal
group with 12 members. This
group performs for chapel
services and special occasions
on campus. In addition, the
Ensemble participates in off
campus church services and
functions. Sally Davis is
President of Ensemble.
Both groups are under the
direction of Miss Suzanne
Ishee, a former St. Mary’s
student. Miss Ishee wishes to
emphasize the “hard work
and dedication of the mem
bers of these groups and urges
all students to attend the
performances.”

Again this year St. Mary’s
has been blessed with a group
of new, crazy, wild girls. As
usual, we need not worry that
anyone will study themselves
to death, be too skinny, or
never have any fun. The high
school students are more
enthusiastic than ever and
certainly rambunctious
enough to keep Smedes alive
this year.
The Freshmen are finding
more studying and books than
they have ever seen before.
Because Smedes is so quiet,
the high school students seem
to be getting all their studying
done. The Freshmen also
seem to like being away from
home. For the first time many
of the girls are “on their own”
with advantages such as being
able to make their own
decisions-like whether to go
to the ^uare, Zack’s, or hit
fraternity court. The general
concensus of the Freshman
class is that St. Mary’s will be
as fun and exciting as they
expected-especially if they
didn’t have to attend daily
classes.

During the summer major
renovations took pace on the
interiors and exteriors of
several buildings on campus.
The rooms and hall of “Hotel”
West Rock were redone and
airconditioning was installed.
In lower Sm^es the alumni

snack bar was relocated to
make room for new public

A Fun Tradition

potatoes, slaw and other

Sister picnic held during the
first week of school. This St.
Mary’s tradition has always
been a good opportunity for
the old girls to introduce new
girls to “the way of life” in
Siis special community. New
girls learned not to be shy
about filling their plates to
capacity, how to make
themselves seen by yelling
across the yard, and how to

Two separate campaigns
for raising the necessary
money were held. One was the
tennis campaign for the new
courts and the other was a
parent’s fund. The
renovations of this summer
were the first major project of
The new Sophomores are
also getting into the swing of
things around St. Mary’s.
Although the new Sophomores
are in a definite minority, the
old girls are quickly teaching
them the ways of life at St.
Mary’s. They, like the Fresh
men, find studying and
classes more difficult than
their hometown high schools
were. Many of the new
Sophomores find the rules not
too bad; in fact in some cases
they are “better than
home!!” The weekend ex
citement of the beach concert,
fraternity parties, and great
bands around the area have
added to the new St. Mary’s
girls good first impression of
St. Mary’s and Raleigh.
The juniors are all excited
and learning to love college
life. Many of them were a
little scared and full of an
ticipation about coming to
college—especially after
receiving their St. Mary’s
handbook this summer.
However, after going ttvough
a confusing and rushed week
of orientation, they are
realizing that St. Mary’s isn’t
all that bad.
After these initial weeks
at school, everyone is getting
settled and into the St. Mary’s
routine. The old and new girls
seem excited about the
coming year and most of all
about meeting lots of great
new friends.
