Dr. Hadley At "Preview” [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 21 August 1958
Dr. Hadley At " Preview” Dr. Loren S. Hadley, who has been director of new student week, is one of the leaders this week at a "College Preview” at Fredonia N.Y. State Teachers college. Following this, Dr. Hadley leaves for Orlando, Fla., where he will be school psychologist. Guidance counselors in New York state have been invited to nominate high school juniors for preview. Two hundred will be selected to go to the Fredonia campus for a few days living and studying as if they were undergraduates. According to Dr. Hadley, the preview boosts interest in college and gives the youngsters a clearer notion of how tough it will be. The result is that they work harder in their senior year of high school. It also eases the transition from high school to college and makes the freshman year, the toughest year of college, less so. Dr. Hadley says.
