FINANCING THE STUDENT UNION [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 23 February 1961
FINANCING THE STUDENT UNION by JOHN C. DITTMER, SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY The Millberry Student Union has three basic sources of income; these are the book store, the cafeteria, and student dues. All expenses incurred by the Union must be met by the above sources of revenue, or financial instability will result. For example, last year (ending June, 1960), the Union had a gross income of $554,376.49. The net profit realized for the entire year was $895.52. The Union, as a whole, is running in the black, so what's all the trouble about? An analysis of last year's income-expenditure sheet reveals that the student cafeteria lost over $14,000, while the actual operation of the Union required another $23,000. The only bright star in the sky was the book store, which showed a profit of over $38,000 — more than enough to counteract the losses due to operations and the cafeteria ($895.52, to be exact). There is one more pertinent figure which I would like to add at this point: In addition to the b...
VETERINARY MEDICINE AND SENIOR MEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 23 February 1961
VETERINARY MEDICINE AND SENIOR MEDS. On Dec. 7, 1960, a small, but hardy group of Senior Medical Students left the comparative safety of the city on a trek through the wilds of Northern California — to Davis. There they were warmly greeted by the Senior Veterinary students for the first half of the Annual Medical exchange days. The visitors from San Francisco were treated to an afternoon of very interesting exhibits and demonstrations. Many of the similarities and differences of veterinary and human Medicine became opinions during the course of the afternoon. The same evening, the travelers were wined and dined in very fine style before returning home. Our "hats are off" to the veterinary students at Davis for their hard work and warm hospitality which made the day so enjoyable. The Senior Med Class is now at work, planning the second half of the exchange, to be held here at U.C.M.C. in April. We only hope that we can plan as fine a day as they had for us.
GUEST EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 23 February 1961
GUEST EDITORIAL (Editor's Note: The following special statement was jointly prepared and submitted by the Dean of Students, Dr. Adrienne Batts, and the Director of the Millberry Union, Robert A. Alexander.) This editorial is being written on February 14, 1961, the eve of a critically important experiment involving the Student Union. Two weeks ago, Dr. J.B. deC. M. Saunders, Provost of the Medical Center, issued a notice to all students stating that, "On February 15, the two cafeterias in Moffitt Hospital will be closed to all students and reserved exclusively for the faculty and non-academic personnel. Students are requested to use the eating facilities of the Millberry Union, both for coffee breaks and meals. The faculty is encouraged to use the Union also." At this time, it is our intent to provide SYNAPSE readers with certain background information referable to the Provost's statement, and in an anticipatory fashion, attempt to answer key and related questions. It should be point...
SKETCHES BY TROUVERE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 23 February 1961
SKETCHES BY TROUVERE Impressions of a contemporary Wandering Minstrel An interesting annual social phenomenon is now taking place in the dental school (according to the-l hopereliable testimony of a dental student friend of mine). It seems that this is the time when the senior students are informed as to whether or not they may graduate. It seems that the dental school, unlike most forms of educational institutions which have set goals and course requirements — the completion of which equals graduation — possesses a shifting and elusive standard that places the student in a position of continual wonder as to where he is. The statements of position received by the seniors are of two types: (1) "You might graduate," and (2) "You won't graduate." There is no "You will graduate" issued. This places some students in the almost inconceivable position where dental school (for them) becomes longer than the quest for the bachelor's, medical, or Ph.D. degrees. Not knowing what knowledge it ta...
