Registrar Meets Needs Of Increased Enrollment [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 24 August 1961
Registrar Meets Needs Of Increased Enrollment Throughout the year the Registrar's Office is a busy place. Thus far this year there have been 4,500 interviews with prospective students, 63,699 letters have been received, 13,378 changes have been made in students' programs, 833 teaching certificates have been processed, 884 draft deferment applica- tions and numerous other material have been handled. One of the big problems this year was arranging for a record of 9,000 full-time students to schedule an adequate selection of Fall classes. To meet the requirements of this record enrollment the University has resorted to the technique of pre-registration. Just before the end of the Spring term students made out trial study programs for the Fall Quarter and left them with their advisor or at the Registrar's Office. Other registration material has been mailed to students during the summer. With these papers returned to the Registrar's Office, students are registered and avoid having to que...
Visiting Lecturer Warns Education for "Gifted" Has Pitfalls [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 24 August 1961
Visiting Lecturer Warns Education for "Gifted" Has Pitfalls Brian Holmes, a visiting lecturer from the University of London, asked to comment on the present emphasis in the United States on special education for the "gifted student," warned against an uncritical acceptance of such programs. A former teacher of highly selected English children, Professor Holmes said in a recent interview, "Our system in England of grouping students together on the basis of academic ability, particularly at the secondary school level, has been under fire for many years now." Under this system some 20-per-cent of the age group are selected on the basis of IQ, arithmetic and English tests to receive in separate schools an enriched program the orientation of which is college preparatory. Only specially selected or "gifted" teachers tend to teach in these schools. He pointed out that ability grouping on the basis of academic achievement has undoubtedly tended to re-enforce the hierarchical class structure...

Students Say Intellectual Curiosity Bows To Job Training in College [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 24 August 1961
Students Say Intellectual Curiosity Bows To Job Training in College Many of today's college students are going to college primarily for job training rather than intellectual stimulation. This was the majority opinion of those interviewed at random on campus Friday by the KSU Summer News. This week's question was "Do you think the majority of students go to college primarily for job training rather than intellectual stimulation?" Here are the thought-provoking answers of 12 students to this question: Ted Doll, geology major from Stow ... "I believe the majority of students are here for job training. The only way to land a job with a future is to have college training. My parents are financing my college education and I owe it to them to get training for a job." William Glover, industrial production and administration major from Sidney . . . "The majority come here for job training, but by the time they're upperclassmen they begin to realize the need for knowledge of things other than...
Dr. Wenger Reports Summer School Fills Grad Student Needs [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 24 August 1961
Dr. Wenger Reports Summer School Fills Grad Student Needs (EDITORS NOTE: Dr. Roy E. Wenger, former acting dean of the Graduate School, has completed a study on the first 25 years of graduate study at Kent State University. Here is the third and final condensed installment of his report.) Much is being written about the "full-year university". Kent State University has long had such an arrangement available to those students who choose it. The summer quarter is equivalent in requirements, standards, and staff to a quarter during the regular year. This tradition seems to be a reasonable and workable one and a discussion of summer sessions should take these local facts into account. Requirements for the Master of Arts and the Master of Education degrees include 12 quarter hours of work taken while in full-time residence. For most students the opportunity to get this full-time residence comes during the summer sessions. * * * The summer sessions give many graduate students the opportuni...

Dr. Olsen Explains Honors Program To Offer, Demand More (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second of a two-part series on the Honors Program at Kent State University. Material for the series has been digested from a report prepared by Dr. James Olsen, director of the Honors Program.)
