THE4*f7 REGISTER "COMPLETE AWARENESS FOR COMPLETE COMMITMENT" i. i ■' APRIL 28, 1972 VOLUME XLIII, NUMBER 28 NORTH CAROUNA AGRICULTURAL AND TECHNICAL STATE UNIVERSITY. GREENSBORO Coed Visitation Passed For Senior Dorm 53-51 By Janet Jones Coed - Visitation was approved Tuesday by the Faculty Forum in its regular meeting held in Carver Hall. The proposal for coed visitation was drawn up by the executive committee of Senior Dormitory. It was presented to the Faculty Forum by James Hill, vice president of the Student Government Association. The proposal had previously been presented to the Univeristy Council where it was approved. Coed - Visitation was approved for Senior Dorm only, by a vote of 53-51. It will go into effect for the fall semester on a trial basis. The next ruling on the proposal will be by the Board of Trustees . In a recent poll, 80% of the men in Senior Dorm approved coed - visitation. Some objections to the proposal were that the student body wasn't mature enough for coed visitation, additional personnel would be needed for the dorms and might affect the enrollment because alumni and parents would be hesitant about sending their children here to school. Other arguments against the proposal were that the 20% who voted against the bill would need provisions made for their conceniences and the classification of students (coeds) should be considered. The guidelines that were presented along with the proposal are a guest must be accompanied by the resident from desk to the suite, guest must be signed in and out which includes time, room number and resident's name. There is a limit of eight guests per suite. Visitation hours will be 6:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. Thursdays and 3:00 p.m. - 11:00p.m. Friday through Sunday. Following the fall semester evaluation, a committee will determine the effectiveness of the program and estimate whether it is feasible to incorporate the program on a campus - wide basis. The evaluation committee will consist of the Dean of Student Affairs, the Dean of Men, the Dean of Women, the dormitory director and four members of the student executive board of Senior Hall, along with the president of the SGA. The residents of Senior Dormitory for the coming year will be able to alter or abolish this program. Marshall Says Closing Snack Bar 'Never Crossed Anybody's Mind' Ronald Topping Editor-in-Chief "There has never been any discussion of closing the Union snack bar"; that was the statement made by Dr. Jesse E. Marshall, dean of Student Affairs, concerning a story in last week's Register. The story, which revealed , plans for replacing the snack bar with vending machines, was obtained from a person who did not wish to be identified. '■'Perhaps some misunderstanding has stemmed from explorations being made to provide special vending services which have been requested by women students," Dr. Marshall said. Dr. Marshall went on to explain that the present vending firm had informed the university that it could not provide these special services without certain considerations. "Other campuses*' he added, wanted to look into other areas of the campus". The plans to beautify the games room in the basement of the union might have been another area of misunderstanding. Dr. Marshall said that it was suggested that this might be a place for machines. The games room would serve as an added attraction to vending companies. "The thought (to close the snack bar) was never conceived in anybody's mind," Dr. Marshall emphasized. As for the unidentified source's charge that the administration was trying to "put one over on the students," Dr. Marshall commented that the Union Advisory Board would have to be brought in on any discussion of this type. The Advisory Board has the power to plan programs and activities for the Union* they advise the union director. "It was very unfortunate that the person who released the story did not check with Mr. Welborne , the Union Director," Dr. Marshall concluded. Pre-Registration Begins Next Week By Janice Smith Pre-registration for the fall semester is scheduled for May 1-5. It will be conducted in much the same way as the previous semester. Students should report to the office ice of their major department chairman. Only the chairman has the master schedule and other materials needed to complete the procedure. All students currently enrolled in the university and planning to return in the fall are required to participate in pre-registration, except graduate students. In the departmental office, students will complete a trial schedule, three copies of a course request form (with ball-point pens), and a course request card, with the aid of an academic advisor. The designated places of pre-registration in each department will be open between 8:30 and 5:00. Classes will not be suspended; students should go during their free time. The Office of Registration and Records advises everyone to co-operate. If students comply, valuable time will be saved next fall. April showers bring A&Tcoeds close together. p^ot Chemistry Dept. Is Accredited Braye Officials were notified Thursday that the university's Department of Chemistry has been approved by the American Chemical Society, the nation's highest rating agency on professional training in Chemistry . Announcement of the society's approval was made by J. H. Howard, secretary of the ACS's committee on professional training , after several months of evaluating the staff and facilities.here on campus. Granted the full approval of the committee was the undergraduate program of education in chemistry. "The staff of the Chemistry Department is to be commended for its development of a strong program," said Howard in his report. "The :committee appreciates the fact that this progress could not have been achieved without strong encouragement and support by the students, faculty, and staff, and administration." Dr. Glenn F. Rankin, dean of academic affairs at A&T, called the ACS approval "a vital step in' our continuing quest for educational excellence. The approval of our Chemistry Department follows closely the national accreditation of our School of Nursing, and to gain this approval for two important segments of our university in a single academic year is quite an honor." "We plan to push forward immediately with the upgrading of our important School of Business Administration," added Rankin. Dr. Walter L. Sullivan, chairman of the Chemistry Department,said the ACS approval should bring a number of benefits to A&T's program. "This will definitely add to the qualifications of our students," said Sullivan, "as industries, graduate school and other colleges will recognize the quality of our program. This approval should also reflect highly on our faculty and staff (See Chemistry, page 3)
