MtiOfli ^Jihxeelien M The 1987-88 school year was marked by not only changes in the physical appearance of the campus, but also, by numerous ad- justments in the academic realm, where Agnes Scott is already justly renowned for its excellence. During the spring semester the most imme- diate and startling change — evening classes — was introduced. These classes, which ran from 5:45 to 7:00 twice a week, allowed entirely free mornings or afternoons. According to Associate Dean Harry Wistrand, stu- dents can expect an expansion of the evening class in 1988-89, when class- es that run from 4:00 to 5:15 are add- ed. In the fall semester the faculty be- gan considering more profound changes, changes in the curriculum. Tentative plans and programs were announced at the September 30 con- vocation. The Art Department Chair, Dr. Terry McGehee was inter- ested in a visiting arts program, ren- novation of Dana, and more support concerning the personnel, such as secretaries, curators, and building managers. In the English Department, Chair Linda Hubert proposed a writers in residence program, a writing lab, and an expanded creative writing pro- gram that would include a course and internships in the field of journalism. These programs would serve a broad spectrum of students. Freshmen with writing anxiety or inadequate writ- ing ability would benefit from the guidance offered in a writing lab. Those with a keen interest in writing would enjoy the proximity of a writer in residence and the opportunity to explore journalism in depth. Many other departments, includ- ing the German Department, the Chemistry Department, the Physical Education Department, and the Bi- ble and Religion Department planned curriculum changes that ranged from including Global Awareness fees in tuition to creating a women ' s studies library. Just as the campus renovations enhance student life, these academic changes enhance student learning opportunities. These adjustments show that main- taining excellence requires constant adaptations and refinement even at a very traditional college like Agnes Scott.
