Page Two, THE HILLTOP Sept. 9, 1978
Ah yes, I admit it, many moons and several hundred suns ago, I
was once a Mars Hill College freshmen myself. (Only I referred to
myself as a freshperson since I was not a fresh man, myself being a
young college woman.) I am sorry to say I recall my first week of
college life with no fond memories. I did not know a soul. The first
weekend I stayed in my dorm room eating peanutbutter crackers be
cause I did not want to eat by my lonesome in the cafeteria. G.A.T.E.-
W.A.Y. and my inentor group tried to keep me busy but in between
meetings and socials the hours were boring and lonesome.
When classes finally started, when upper classpeople arrived, col
lege became exciting and time consuming. I love it here at M.H.C.
I am happy here.
I was recently talking with several ’78 freshpeople who had the
sarne introduction to college life as my own sorry saga. These conver
sations prompted me to write this conglomeration of words in the form
of an editorial. In my opinion the arriving date for freshpeople should
be moved to two days earlier than upperclass people, not four. It is
feasible. Most other colleges do it.
I would be interested in some response from other students and
faculty members as to my idea - for or against it. WELL . . . what do
you say? Use the Hilltop for your own worthy replys.
We cannot adequately express our
deep gratitude to the faculty, staff,
students, and friends who sympathized
with us during our time of bereavement
over the death of our son. Thanks for
the prayers, cards, calls, visits, flowers,
and all else you did for us which en
hanced the confirmation of Mars Hill as
a Christian community. God bless you

In a lecture hall, the best place to sit
is in the middle, towards the front, where you
can see and hear easily. Believe it or not,
those who sit in this position usually do better
than those who sit in the back.
HOW TO STUDY, Fawcett Books
Recitation is an effective device for
learning while reading a textbook. To make
certain that you understand and remember, you
should stop periodically and try to recall to
yourself what you have read. This is recitation.
-Morgan § Deese
HOW TO STUDY, McGraw-Hill
bb There is a great deal of difference be
tween high school study methods and those at the
college level. In college you will have to learn
more material in less time, and learn most of it
outside of class. Another difference is you will
have to think more. Some courses require that yoU
criticize or evaluate information and not merely
accept it because it is the printed word.

SURVIVAL, Harper § Row
Learn to think physically in relationship
to cause and effect in history. Geography, econ
omic conditions, even the air men breathe
(whether fresh or saturated with smog) influence
history. Do not overlook the world in searching
for a detail.
