Faculty Orientation And for the first time since these conferences began, it was suggested that a similar program be adopted by the faculty to orientate other faculty memb?rs who also are commuters—to SC and what it stands for. It was pointed out that a great many faculty members, like students, merely come to SC, teach some classes, and leaw when they are over, without ever really get ting to know- the school. The problems of integrating the independent student into life at SC was l>?ld similar to the commuter integration problem — but with these additions: Both Greg Taylor and Lauretta Misraje independent mens and women's representatives respectively, felt that eliminating independent apathy would have to come gradually through an intensive publicity campaign. OK Rmind-TTp But Taylor said he believed the “orientation w?ek round-up'• program was a very big step in the right direction. He and Miss Misraje emphasized, however, that perhaps a new word could be found to replace independenr. They felt that as things now stand there is a mistaken stigma attached to the word which make . ------- . many independents dubious about ting this? new men especially joining such organizations. Independent and commuter— They also felt that the inrte-^^B>'hing that the school pPndent has no pride in his status and therefore just “vegetates around campus, never entering any activities.” And, they addeo, that most independents are misinformed about many activities, thinking they won't be aeo?pter» because they are independents. Internation Integration The international students can better be integrated to life at SC by a stronger publicity program before he arrives and during his first week here, the conference felt. This could b? accomplished by having better pamphlets sent to him at home and having him greeted by some student who could serve as "sort of a big PICNIC TIME — It was a sunny day back in 1880 so members of the SC Faculty took time out for a picnic in Santa Monica.
