President Welcomes Students (The following is a message to the student body by Dr. George A. Bowman, President of Kent State University) It would have been a great pleasure to me, had it been possible, personally to speak to the entire summer student body. With so much work concentrated in so short a time, it has not seemed advisable to break into class periods for a convocation which would have provided me this opportunity. For reasons we do not know as yet because we have not had an opportunity to analyze enrollments, you are a larger student body than we had a year ago by about 400. Some of you are just beginning your college work; between a fourth and a third are graduate students; and the remainder—the larger number of you—are at various stages on the road toward the baccalaureate degree. You are equally welcome, regardless of which one of these categories best describes the reason for your presence on the campus this summer. I would be unfaithful in my responsibility to you if...
