CONCENTRATION FIELDS CONSIDERED IN GUIDE

QUESTIONNAIRE IMPOSSIBLE DUE TO COURSE DIVERSITY

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In an effort to expand the usefulness of the Crimson Confidential Guide to Courses for Freshmen, a section of next year's issue will consider the fields of concentration. Although it was impossible to send out a blanket questionnaire to men in each field, because of the diversity of the courses, tutors, special fields, etc., as was done with Freshman courses, representative students, selected by the Head Tutor in each department at the CRIMSON's request, will be asked to assist in the compilation of the Guide to Fields.

Students whose names were on the list obtained from each Department will be asked to give the CRIMSON the benefit of their intimate acquaintance with their field in a series of meetings held during the next three weeks.

From the comment offered by the six Seniors out for honors and the ten Juniors in Group IV or above this selected, it is hoped that a fair and impartial idea of each field and to some extent an idea of the relative merit or mediocrity of the fields as compared one with another will be gained.

The results of such meetings will be published on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the CRIMSON beginning tomorrow. During the summer these will be revised if an unfavorable reaction indicates it is non-representative or unfair comment, and then printed in the first half of the Freshman Confidential Guide.

Letters of explanation will be sent to the men designated by the Head Tutor including cards for reply. So far three meetings have been held and much valuable comment, unobtainable elsewhere has been collected and boiled down into constructive or critical suggestions.
