Shortage of Classrooms, Housing Forces Registration Deadline Change [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 June 1961
Shortage of Classrooms, Housing Forces Registration Deadline Change Critically short of classroom and housing space, Kent State University moved up its deadline Monday for Fall quarter admissions from September 8 to August 15. This means qualified students must complete all applications by August 15 or they will be refused admission this September. The new deadline was set because current admissions already are 14 percent higher than last year, and classroom and housing space is nearly exhausted. At the present time, slightly over 4,000 new students have completed applications for admission in September. Last year, the University approved 3,500 admissions and 3,004 students were on hand for the opening of classes. Although applications have tapered off, the University is still approving about 75 new admissions weekly. Kent is expecting 9,000 fulltime students this Fall, a 10 percent increase over last year when enrollment reached a record of 8,232 full-time students. To take care of...
Proposed Budget Cuts Hinder KSU Programs [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 June 1961
Proposed Budget Cuts Hinder KSU Programs Budget cuts made by the Ohio Senate Finance Committee "will be devastating" to the operation of Kent State University, President George A. Bowman told the Board of Trustees Friday. He said that if the 6-per cent reduction proposed by the State Senate Finance Committee in the University's operating budget was sustained by the Senate that recent salary increases authorized by the trustees might have to be modified. The trustees also heard President Bowman report that capital improvements sought by Kent had been trimmed from S6-mil-lion to 52.3-million by the legislators. If the General Assembly votes to approve the reduced amount for Kent several proposed buildings and additional land for the University will have to be bypassed for the next two years. The proposed 52.3-million is earmarked for the construction of a 51.6 million College of Education Building, a 5500,000 maintenance building and warehouse and 5200,000 for the maintenance of prese...
Universities May Place Ceiling On Student Enrollment [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 June 1961
Universities May Place Ceiling On Student Enrollment The nation's state universities are faced with the prospect of placing ceilings on undergraduate enrollments, according to a Kent State University administrator. The reason: "funds are chronically short in most states," according to Dr. Phillip R. Shriver, assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Writing in the current issue of Delta Upsiloti Quarterly, Dr. Shriver points out that public universities "caught the brunt of the post-war veterans' bulge spurred by the G.I. Bill," adding: "In recent years, these schools, too, have been confronted with the prospect of limiting undergraduate enrollments and concentrating their resources increasingly on research and graduate and professional training." As an example, he cites reports that the University of California at Berkeley and Los Angeles plans enrollment ceilings of 25,000 students. "Other large state universities are contemplating similar limits," he says.
Trustees Attack OSU Research Center Bill [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 June 1961
Trustees Attack OSU Research Center Bill Kent State University's Board of Trustees Friday sharply attacked proposed state legislation for financing a new engineering research center at Ohio State University. In a resolution condemning the use of a $l5 million cigarette tax surplus, the trustees questioned the use of this money for a single institution. "At this very moment, students are being denied the quality of education they deserve," the trustees pointed out, because "the needs for classrooms, libraries, laboratories, instructional equipment, rehabilitation and repair" are not being met at the state universities." The trustees emphasized they were not against the engineering facility, as such, but stated that these surplus funds were voted under a SISO million bond issue in 1955 for all state universities, as well as for other capital projects. The trustees further noted that all state universities in Ohio presently have a serious lack of classroom and laboratory facilities des...
