At a meeting in the New Lecture Hall at 9 o'clock on Thursday morning members of the Class of 1933 will officially enter upon the task of determining their field of concentration, when they gather to hear addresses on this subject from President Lowell, Assistant Professor J. P. Baxter 3d '23 of the History department, and Delmay Leighton '19, secretary of the Committee on the Choice of Electives.
President Lowell, who appears before first year classes as an adviser annually in April, will give information as to the best methods of choosing work for the final three years in college. Professor Baxter will explain the methods used in the tutorial system, while Mr. Leighton will discuss the courses of the Sophomore year.
Freshmen now have slightly more than three weeks, until April 23, to select the studies which they will pursue as Sophomores. Before making a final decision each student must hold a conference with his faculty adviser and with a representative of the field in which he intends to concentrate. The plan of study submitted must include concentration and distribution for the whole college course, and also the list of courses elected for the first half of the Sophomore year.
The chief change in the rules relating to college studies, as pointed out by Mr. Leighton, is the fact that "beginning with the class of 1933, a student concentrating in Chemistry must pass at least five courses in the field of concentration with grades of C or higher."
