CW^xjmtm^ Over the previous five years a feeling of expectations has ignited Anges Scott ' s tran- quil campus. With the erection of new buildings and sumptuous reno- vation of old buildings, students, fac- ulty, and administration have come to expect constant improvement and change. Who planned these very suc- cessful projects, and what are their expectations for the future? The Second Century Committee was created to serve as such a plan- ning organization. According to A.S.C. President and committee Chair Ruth Schmidt, the purpose of the group is to " essentially be sure that the institution plans for the fu- ture " rather than remain static amid the unceasing upheavals of the out- side world. In 1985 the Committee drew up a document, a check-list of sorts, that described various im- provements that the members envi- sioned. By the fall of 1987 they real- ized that much of what needed to be done in 1985 " was already accom- plished or well underway. " However, the process of planning for Agnes Scott ' s second century cannot be completed. It is an " ongoing " proce- dure, which requires constant revi- sion and reinterpretation in order to meet the expectations of students of the nineties as well as the current students of the eighties. In 1987-88 the Committee concen- trated on academics, the foundation of any educational institution. Be- cause the faculty did not complete its proposals until the spring of 1987, that area had been the " big hole in the plan. " Also, during that year the Committee discussed some " basic questions: Who are our students? How are we perceived? What are we trying to do? What is it we really want to say about the education of an Agnes Scott woman? " Of course, the college ' s basic ideal of providing a liberal arts education for women under Christian auspices remains constant. But meeting this expectation requires perpetual ad- justment and adaptation to the changing climate of the culture. This kind of adaptation does not mean that A.S.C. will ever offer a computer engineering major. But it does mean that computers will assume a broad- er role in student life. Already, our expectations of a campus with the finest facilities of any its size have been met. Agnes Scott, with the guidance of the Second Century Committee, will continue to antici- pate and meet new expectations far into the future.
