We are on the threshold of a new year; a year in which we hope
to see Charlotte College grow as it has never grown before. We believe
that if the school is to grow' as it should, there must be a spirit of
friendship and congeniality among the students. Several attempts are
I'eing made in an effort to make this spirit of friendship prevalent
throughout the school. Primary among these attempts are the name
cards which are to be given out on Wednesday, September 24.
The pur])ose of these cards is twofold. As you will notice, some
of the cards are white and some of them are yellow. The difference
in color is to distinguish students who are here for the first time
from the older students. The purpose of this distinction is to aid
freshman students in obtaining information that will be helpful to
them. In procedures that are standards at the College a freshman will
only need to look for the nearest white card to obtain information.
The second reason for the wearing of the name cards is to allow
students to associate names with faces. We hope that everyone will
make a sincere effort to leai'n the names of his classmates as quickly
as possible. Everyone likes friends and fiiends like to be known by
their names. This first week of school will be known as friendship

GREETINGS FROM FACDLTY AND STUDENTS
For tile faculty and administration, I am pleased 1o extend a
cordial welcome to all students of the Charlotte Colk'Ke during the
19r)2-195;! session. I sincerely hope that your experiences within the
classroom and your associations with both staff and fellow students
wil be i)leasant and profitable.
This fall our college will begin its seventh year of 0])eration.
P’or the first three years as the Charlotte C'olege Center, the Direc-
toi’ate of F]xtension of the Uni\'ersity of North (’arolina was resjion-
sible for its administration. Our fourth year of operation was the
lirst year of Charlotte ('ollege under the direction of the Board of
School Commissioners of the City of Charlotte. Our students and
faculty, working hand in hand have made our first three years as
an independent college, most successful ones. Let us all put our shoul
ders to the wheel and make this session our best one yet.
It is our sinceie hope that your days at the CJharlotte College
will be happy and successful ones, and that you will come to love your
cillege as you assume your part in building its future.
BONNIE E. CONE, Director.
I wish to extend a hearty welcome to all of the returning students
and to all the new students here at Charlotte College, The entire
Student Council joins me in this welcome, and we hope that we may
be instrumental in making your stay here at C. C. a happy and suc
cessful one. If we are to be successful in doing this, we must do the
things that will be appreciated and enjoyed by the majority of the
student body. Therefore I ask that you let your wishes and desires
be known either to me or to the committee chairman in charge of that
The Student Council has met repeatedly throughout the summer
in an effort to get the school year off to good start. We hope that
you will notice and like some of the changes that we have attempted.
As you look over these pages you will notice what the different com
mittees are trying to do. If you are in favor, let them know; if you
are opposed, let them know. They will appreciate any suggestions
that you can make.
Members are needed on the various committees. I would like
to urge all members of the student body who are interested in working
on some committee to contact the chairman of that committee. He
will be glad to use you. The need for new students on these committees
is of extreme importance. I iiarticularly urge all new students to
become a member of on of the committees.
The greatest enjoyment in any enterprise comes from taking
part ill that enterprise. Those jieople who liave the warmest memories
of college life are those who actively participated in school affairs while
they were in college. The school has need of you, and you have need
of the school; the need is twofold, so won’t you take advantage of it?
I would like to call your attention to the college handbook. Since
last years handbook was printed for two years, we have revised only
that part of the book which most urgently needed revising. All vital
information concerning you is in the handbook. You should know your
constitution, your student council officers, your calendar of events,
etc. You will find all this information in the handbook. Read it well!
Speaking for the Student Council, I would like to express this
thought. If, at the end of the year, we have realized our aims, if you
have enjoyed this school year, if the socials are well attended, if we
have furthered the development of the school, then we have been a
success. We hope that we will be a success. We can be a success only if
we have served you well. Help us to do that,
ARTHR FARLEY, Pres, of Student Council.
