Books, books, and more books."
"Lines, lines, and more linesf'
For each person, the business of higher education is a
different experience, but inevitably, as each student
nears his graduation day, certain impressions have left
an indelible mark on his mind and character. These exp-
eriences make a permanent impact, consciously or sub-
consciously, in the growth of his personality.
Take, for instance, that initial feeling of insignifi-
cance when one first enters a dormitory-a multitude
milling around-New Yorkers, Yankees, Southerners,
and students from distant lands. All are thrown togeth-
er in odd combinations, but they call each other groom-
Registration is more of the same . . . unfamiliar faces
-lines, lines, and more lines, forms, forms, and more
forms-odd and new words: bursar, S.P.R.C., horarium,
In class, one finds himself being referred 'to as "Mis-
ter', rather than by his more familiar first name. Books
are required . . . many, many books . . . and again, lines,
lines, and more lines.
The class hours seem odd at first-eight o'clock class-
es, one class on Tuesday, five classes on Friday, and no-
body to get you up in the morning! Yet, one is not com-
pletely independent. Factors such as curfew, overcut-
ting, and meals at specified times, restrain the student
who is overzealous in his newly found independence.
Soon, some of the novelty of college life wears OH, but
if one is alert, unafraid, and desirous of education in its
broadest sense, he continually finds college life filled

The dorm is no longer a series of lines, faces, and ivy
league suits, but has become a home. The student has
found new friends, and thereby continues to enrich his
education. As he meets many new people, he automat-
ically grows more and more selective-choosing persons
of similar likes and dislikes, similar and differing ethnic
and geographic backgrounds, and identifying himself
with formal groups. At Boston University, vast oppor-
tunities exist for friendships which are genuine and
Classes themselves are more interesting when one
meets a breed of person known as "the commuterf, who
advises the newcomer on the pros and cons of life in
Boston, the evils of the lNITA, and the historical signifi-
cance of New England.
The commuter comes to school by foot, automobile,
train, and lNITA. Living at home, he has daily contact
with his family, friends, and community. He, too, has a
rich and full four years.
Burdened by the taxing demands of marriage and a
family, the married student finds his time and energies
limited. However, the ambitious and resourceful indi-
vidual rations his time sensibly so that he joins in some
of the benefits of Boston University student life.
The graduate student-that fortunate wonder who
has already completed his four undergraduate years and
is zealously delving into the specialized area of his acad-
emic eoncentration-he, too, is a member, maybe some-
what removed from the undergraduate,s daily round,
but, nevertheless, a member of the Class of 1958.
