The importance of graduate study was the keynote of the Career Conference held last night in Dunster. Dean Rogers of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Professor Gordon M. Fair, Chairman of the Division of Engineering Sciences, and Associate Dean Stanley F. Teele of the Business School were guest speakers representing various fields of graduate study.
Dean Rogers impressed upon his audience that graduate work is not narrow and specialized, as many believe, and pointed out that graduate study must have a broad foundation of general knowledge. He emphasized the importance of the "spirit of research" in graduate work.
Fair lamented the small number of men who do graduate work in engineering. The Dunster housemaster laid much of the blame on industry for snapping up undergraduates who might have gone on to do important graduate work.
In his talk, Teele described the aims and functions of the Business School. Real business experience, he pointed out, is a valuable preparation.
