Stepping out of a small college comes to Harvard, unknown and unheralded and, it would seem, ignored, the Unclassified Student. Not backed by fellow Freshmen, or supported by friends in the upper classes, he is indeed lost in the whirl of college activities. To find and understand his fellow scholars is almost impossible. The University for him becomes a great industrial plant, each man selfishly pursuing his own affairs, wrapped up in his own friends, enveloped in "Harvard indifference." Surely something can be done to make the path of the Unclassified Student easier.
For the Freshmen we have Senior advisors--men who understand the feelings and attitude of their younger fellows. Can not Senior advisors be assigned to unclassified students? They of all students are alone. They of all students should find the true Harvard. We ought not to neglect this class of undergraduates, but help them. We ought not only to assign Senior advisors but to give them credit when they have earned credit, honors when they have earned honors, and to make them feel that they are real members of the University.
