Having attended Benson these past four years
I have learned a great deal. This is a great
school but it still has its faults. The teach-
ers' thoughts and 'ideas are too set regarding
black students. The student bodyuas a whole
is not listened to enough. This is mainly be-
cause some of their ideas are liberal and
most of the teachers tend to be conservative.
If this is to continue to be a great school, the
administration must take student ideas more
into consideration. Also, on behalf of the
black students, attending Benson: They
should be able to study their own black cul-
ture. They are being deprived of this right
because Benson has no Black Studies course.
If the existence ofthe Nation's Finest is to
continue, the faculty must judge all students
by their inner qualities rather than by their
appearance or color of skin.

My past four years at Benson have been
something else?'? It is a very fine school,
but it would be even better if co-educational
Being a member of SURS, I have had the op-
portunity of attending various social func-
tions Which were very rewarding. That's
one of the things Wrong with Benson. Al-
though the academic and shop programs
are the very best anywhere, 'the school
doesn't offer one much of a chance to de-
velop the background one needs in order to
enter a different field than those offered
