Transcript College Life And it came to pass one sunny September morn in 1960 that 3,313 recent high school graduates found themselves in a new role as college students . . . Following the Freshman Guidance Tests these first-year students are exposed to the mad rush that accompanies the beginning of school. They are exposed for the first time to the rigors of college life—namely that hectic three-ring circus commonly called registration. Endless lines confront the confused freshman as he begins the ordeal of registering. After waiting for hours in the first line, he is handed countless cards with empty hlanks in which he is to put all kinds of information. Or, perhaps he is told that he has been in the wrong line and must begin at the back of another line. Dismal faces of all the freshmen look hopefully to upper- classmen for encouragement, but there is none to be found. They, too, are confused and are in need of encouragement— they have experienced the trials of registration during previous semesters. With determination the freshmen, as well as upperclassmen, continue to stand in endless lines, filling nut countless blank cards, and answering numerous questions. Then the students try to decipher class schedules and select courses. At long last registration is over, and students seek refuge in Cougar Den— over cups of coffee and a hand of bridge, only to find that Freshmen must report for Freshman Orientation. REGISTRATION ANXIETY builds up as students work their way to the front of a line and call for the class section they desire. Meg Gibson waits as PH ill is Smith checks the IBM cards. If the section Is closed, it means a new schedule and again to the back of the tine. HOUSTONIAN PICTURES are made during registration for the convenience of those wishing a picture in the yearbook. Marie David stops to check her hair before having her picture made at a booth set up near the gymnasium. FILLING OUT CARDS becomes a tiresome job, and it seems each registration point means more of these multi-colored, questioning demons. mi
