Officials Make Ready For Housing Squeeze [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 26 August 1965
Officials Make Ready For Housing Squeeze One of the worst housing shortages in Kent State history is in prospect this fall, and university officials have taken emergency steps to accommodate the flood of students seeking dormitory and off-campus accommodations. The university has appealed to area residents to provide rooms for nearly 400 students who cannot be housed on campus because a dormitory was not completed when expected. Housing officials had hoped that the new eight-story Beall Hall would be completed ahead of schedule, and they optimistically booked 500 students for the fall quarter. With word that the building will not be ready until November or December, most of the displaced students must be accommodated in off-campus housing. According to Ronald Beer, assistant dean of men, the residence hall squeeze is even tighter because an unusually large number of upperclassmen are returning to the dormitories. Beer said the men's halls were "extremely overcontracted" because of t...
Cooperation Is Key For Kent and CSU [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 26 August 1965
Cooperation Is Key For Kent and CSU Kent State hopes to develop a "warm relationship" with the newly-created Cleveland State University, Pres. Robert I. White announced in a recent talk. "I see nothing in the way of conflict," Dr. White declared during a luncheon address before the Cleveland Kiwanis Club at Hotel Sheraton-Cleveland. "We all know the long-range job we must do in regard to the number of students to come," he added. Dr. White pointed up the problem by saying, "Even if all of the private colleges and universities in Ohio doubled their enrollments during the next eight years, the state-assisted schools would have to triple their enrollments to handle the number of students seeking to enter college." He also cautioned against placing too great an emphasis on numbers. "The citizens of Ohio," he said, "are concerned too much with numbers. Let us also keep in mind the necessity for quality." Dr. White noted that the floodtide of college student reflects the large population ...

'EXPERT VISITORS' Our Men in Tanzania Receive Recognition [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 26 August 1965
'EXPERT VISITORS' Our Men in Tanzania Receive Recognition Kent State's teacher training project in Tanzania expected to continue until 1966 drew recent praise from Tanzanian president Julius K. Nyerere. Nyerere took the opportunity of dedication ceremonies for a new teacher training college to acknowledge the work carried on by Kent for the past three years. "Buildings by themselves are not very much use," he said. "This college is already able to make a contribution to our teaching requirements because we have had the services of specialists from Kent State University, U.S.A." "These expert visitors," Nyerere continued, "have contributed very much to improving the quality of the training given to teachers both here and elsewhere in Tanzania." He added the hope that, al- though the project was nearing completion, Kent officials would never "completely sever their connections with Tanzania." Kent's program in the African nation was begun in 1962 under a contract with the U.S. Agency ...

Some Help in Learning the Ropes Pre-College Conference Visits Provide Briefing for Freshmen Beginning a college career can be a hectic process for the new freshman, confronted for the first time with registration procedures, placement tests, book buying, class scheduling and other foreign experiences. And parents, with their high school or college days behind them, can be twice as bewildered at today's fast-moving campus life. For the past seven years, Kent State's summer orientation program has made the transition to college life a bit easier for the student, as well as for mother and father. "Our program is unique in a sense because we do invite parents and have a special program for them," says Russell K. Nahas, di- rector of Kent's New Student Program. Throughout July and August, the University holds a series of Pre-College Conferences, each accommodating 200 new students and one or both of their parents. The two-day programs allow parents to stay overnight, getting a taste of c...
