3 F e ۴ With colleges cracking down on students who are weak in their writing skills, a new emphasis on writing was adopted by the English department. To guarantee that all graduates have at least had valuable high school exposure to writing, a requirement was added. Under this addition, students must take a semester of composition or writing in either their junior or senior year. Even though this requirement didn't apply to the 1978 graduating class, many seniors took courses that filled this requirement, making it difficult for juniors to take such a class. Two courses were added to accommodate the change. Basic Composition offered some students a strong sense of familiarity with various writing styles. Tim Budnik, a junior who took this basic course, felt it would best match his abilities. He said, ۶'۱ took the easier way, like many other kids.” A course of greater depth into writing was Composition for the College Bound. Here 26 English TU ۵ students were really taught what writing meant! They we re given the types of assignments that college students usually struggle through. Paul Ryan said, ''It should give us a little edge over other students.’’ He went on to explain how this class was ‘‘nitpickier’’ over mechanics than in most English courses. Composition courses weren't the only selections open under the new addition. Creative Writing, Introduction to Journalism and Advanced Journalism which produces The Web, were all offered as in previous years. These classes presented a different kind of writing from the composition classes. Top Right: EMOTIONAL.
