The month of hlay comes, and finally, at last, the freshman year is
ended. Nine of the most wonderful, important months of a person's
life are over. The alert person has learned much, has changed greatly,
yet still retains his individuality.
The impressionable freshman becomes the aggressive sophomore
and the anxious junior. He is a bit more sure of himself as he finds his
way through the intricacies of college life. Soon, his vocational objec-
tives are clarified and the future is less muddled.
However, he still lives for the here and now. Friendships are solidi-
fied-many are to become life-long-but as his academic program be-
comes more specialized, the student meets other people with similar
aspirations and hopes. '
The football team isn't as successful as it was in 1954, but the
hockey, basketball, and track teams are doing well. The Class of 1958
furnishes the nucleus of an up-and-coming hockey squad.

The Student Activities Office-organizations' information
Studies begin in earnest. Books, lecture notes, and syllabi open up a
bright new world. The studious individual wades into them vigor-
ously and searches for a unity of purpose in his education.
For most, fraternity and sorority rushing is a brand new experience.
Many sign up purely out of curiosity, and a good number pledge be-
cause they like the Greek way of life.
For others: the perennial class politician, the language major who
wants to join the French Club, or the aggressive young high school
editor who is anxious to write for the Boston University News-each
one discovers different kinds of organizations especially geared to his
"lVhat kind of football team will we haveiw is the cry in September,
1954. When we lick Brandeis, 33-0, and go on to the best season in
University history, we feel a "twinge', of pride, and school spirit is
given a big boost.
The one vital, necessary, absolutely essential element is the faculty.
It has been said that for each undergraduate there must always be a
particular teacher who is inspirational. A teacher who inspires an un-
quenchable thirst for learning, in even one student, fully earns the
Final exams can be rough, and the student who didnit do enough
work during the semester and went into the finals with a couple of
D's, must cram. He finds this unhealthy, and usually, unsuccessful.

and worry incessantly.
Everybody worries-most often, unnecessarily-but most make

their first major hurdle.
