MAY QUEEN ELECTION
following the announcement
that next fall the university will inaugurate the custom
of having freshman week just prior to the beginning
of the fall session, considerable discussion has been
aroused as to whether or not the plan will be suc
Theoretically, at least, freshman week should be of
great value to university and incoming freshmen alike,
It has often been said that martriculating in college is
starting on an entirely new phase of life, and certainly
such an important undertaking should be started off as
well as possible.
If freshman - week teaches freshmen something
about the university they are, entering, its ideals and ambitions; and enables them to discriminate between worths
while and the wasteful elements of college life and to
grasp something of the purpose of attending the university :if freshman week does this and in addition,
makes the boy or girl "feel at home" and happy that
he is a student here then the plan will be successful and
every student should be for it
But there is another side to the question. Fresh
man week can only be successful if students of the uni
versity do their part. During the period of freshman
will be requested to stay off
the campus, according to the committee which is making
the plans for the week.
Undoubtedly, however, on sororities and more espec
ially on fraternities, will fall a considerable responsibility in deciding whether or not the new venture will be a
success. Rushing plans and policies will have to be considerably changed. The old system of "catch as catch
can" will scarcely be applicable to the new order of
things. On many other campuses fraternities have
gentlemen's agreement not to rush during the period of
freshman week. Perhaps such a rule as this is not ne
cessary. But every fraternity must realize that the
university comes first and that in its rushing program
it must not conflict with the university plans for fresh
