Pre-Election Activities
On Campus
Students at Capitol Campus re
ceived a letter from Campus Director
Coleman Herpel and Student Govern
ment President Lee Levan during
the summer. It concerned students
working for political candidates in
November. The following is the text
of the statement:
For the Fall Term 1970, upon re
commendation of the Student Gov
ernment Association and with the
concurrence of the Faculty Council
the following procedures will be in ef
fect to assist students in adding
active participation in pre-election
political activity to their regular aca
demic program activity.
The specific recommendations of
the Student Government Association
are that each student will have three
choices for action during the two
week period beginning on Wednesday,
October 21, and ending on Election
Day, Tuesday, November 3:
1. He may attend regular classes.
2. He may notify his instructor
that he will make up the work
of the two weeks during which
he does not attend classes. (See
items A and B below).
3. With his instructor’s permission,
the two weeks spent working for
candidates will count as credit
toward course work.
The Faculty Council added comments
for clarification:
A. That a student must consult
with his instructor early in the
term regarding each individual
course which he may choose not
to attend on a regular basis but
for which he accepts full re
sponsibility to complete course
B. That course requirements in
each course are to be completed
by the end of the Fall Term.
The Campus Director points out
that these procedures are not the
same as those instituted on an ad hoc
basis in May 1970 for the Spring
Term 1970. The S/U grading basis
is available only at the regular time
and under the ususal conditions for
student choice at the end of the nor
mal drop-add period. Also, the de
ferred grade privilege is available
only on the regular basis of work not
completed because of circumstances
beyond a student’s reasonable control,
such as illness, accident, or other ex
tenuating circumstances.

A New Look for
Capitol Campus
Some new facilities have been add
ed during the summer and some phy
sical changes were made.
Of the new additions, most notice
able is the food service installation in
the Main Building. The cafeteria
line will be open Monday through Fri
day during the day, while the vending
machines will be available whenever
the building is open. A new Vender
ville at last!
Other changes in the Main Building
include establishment of a large stu
dent-faculty art gallery and lounge
area on the first floor in Rooms W
-107 to W-113. The television lounge
has been moved from the basement
to Room W-110, while W-112 has been
designated as an office suite for sev
eral student organizations.
Additional space is available for use
by student organizations this year
with the establishment of offices for
the newspaper and yearbook staffs
and the photography club in the
Placement Building. Adjacent to
these is a newly equipped darkroom
for use by these organizations as well
as by all students and faculty who are
interested in photography.
A new surface has been put on the
floor of the gymnasium, giving it a
new look.
To assist incoming Juniors and
their visiting families, new signs now
label Meade Heights, the dorms, and
the Dining Hall. There are also at
tractive new signs concerning dogs!
