Many innovations were introduced by the admin-
istration during the year. Parking trials and tribu-
lations were rooted out after two days of forced,
but welcome vacation. Problems were finally
solved by the application of crushed rock. Plans
for North Hennepin State junior College inlud-
ed a total of seven buildings, of which only three
were complete for classes. These three included
the General building, which housed the student
offices, the bulk of the theater, music, and lan-
guage classes, the Science building, which held
the science, mathematics, business, and architec-
ture courses, and the Library building, basing the
administration and counseling sectors along with
the commons and art rooms. Enrolled at NHSJC
were approximately 1700 students which consti-
tuted a limited space factor. Adapted by the ad-
ministration during the year was the no-credit
system which provided an alternative for the stu-
dent who wanted to keep his grade point average
at a certain level.
In an effort to personalize education, the English
division introduced seminars during the year.
Objectives of the seminars were to encourage
interaction among students, hence the personal-
izing effect. Rejected was the idea that Freshman
English classes were merely a service to other
departments. Students, it was hoped, would find
the composition and literature courses as an enti-
ty in themselves and not merely courses that
would aid them in other courses. Instructors were
given complete freedom in their choice of litera-
ture in order that they could show students the
introspective concepts of that medium of com-
munication. ln this way the student would hope-
fully see literature as a means of becoming a more
complete human being. This department also
sponsored the Creative Writing Club, which pub-
lished student works in the school newspaper, the
As a part of the Community Services Program of
the year, the Business division, in addition to the
usual business courses offered during the day,
was involved with special evening courses. To
present students with ideas and to develp talents
which would augment their future success in the
various activities of the business world was the
primary objective of the division.
Two types of courses this year were offered by the
new Vocational Technology division. Engineering
technology, a transfer course, involved basic
drawing and drafting while encouraging creative
thinking. A two-year degree was offered in archi-
tectural technology in which students were
trained to work with designers and draftsmen in
that field. Teaching techniques included lectures,
seminars, and labs.
In striving for the cultural enrichment of the stu-
dents, the Humanities division found itself in-
volved in many activities during the year. Among
the programs sponsored by the division were:
various art shows, choir, band, and orchestra
concerts, the Reader's Theater, and five theater
productions. New courses offered this year were
photography, art history, community chorus and
community orchestra. New equipment was also
available to certain courses, including a complete
oratory language laboratory and more electronic
pianos for the music courses. As in other divisions
during the year, experimentation with respect to
teaching methods was conducted. For instance, in
speech, mass lectures were offered, augmented
by small recitation groups designed to give stu-
dents greater chances for self-developement.
Students who were planning a major in engineer-
ing, fulfilling liberal arts requirements, or having a
general interest in the mathematics and science
fields, made use of the wide variety of courses of
the Math and Science division. Since the program
served such a wide variety of interests, the objec-
tives were to provide the mathematical and scien-
tific backround for these many areas of interest
and study. Changes in certain fields were initiated
this year. A new textbook with a new approach
was introduced in the Natural Science 104-105 se-
ries last fall. An additional course, Anatomy and
Physiology, was annexed in the field of biology.
The audio-tutorial laboratory met with continued
success again during the year in biology and in
the Natural Science 101-102-103 series. Consisting
of weekly-taped lectures, films and filmstrips, the
lab combined with the open lab exercises, pro-
vided a multimedia approach to learning the
A full physical education program functioned
during the year even though the new campus did
not include a physical education activities build-
ing. The students had the experience of having
class in all parts of Brooklyn Park at all hours of
the day. A new activities building was expected to
be completed for the fall quarter of 1970. New
teaching techniques were evident in the health
courses during the year. Straight lectures of previ-
ous years were replaced by mass lectures and
small seminar groups, with the addition of a
health lab during the winter quarter.
Courses offered during the year in the Social Sci-
ences division many subheadings: Geography,
History, Political Science, Psychology and Sociol-
ogy. An adequate range of lower division transfer
courses in these pedagogies was developed by
the division which committed itself to excellence
in this area and in the area of General or non-
transfer Education. Objectives of the division
were to provide the students at the college level
with the opportunity to improve their under-
standing of the world around them through a
careful selection of social science offerings de-
signed to help them achieve this better

With the opening of football, basketball and wrestling, the 1969-70 cheerleading squad's activity-laden
season got under way. ln addition to the spirit-raising of the home spectators, they also visited the
opposing team's school to cheer for the home squad.
With the advent of the first victory, the earthy football season proceeded to have its downs and ups. A
record of 2-6 left an outstanding record for nontieing in that field. The highlight of the season proved
to be the Hibbing l30-67 and Golden Valley Lutheran C28-65 games. At the close of the season, Daryl
Valesco and David Gottschalk were elected the 1970-71 football captains.
The wrestling team grappled its way to victory a score of times. For its highlight, the Norsemen sent
four wrestlers to the National junior College Wrestling Tournament held March 1, at Worthington
These four men were: Bob Smith, Dan Lynch, john Pettman and Cliff Otten. Also, at the state wrestling
meet, john Pettman placed third.
The North Hennepin basketball team, captained by Denny Zachman, closed off a hard-fought season.
Finishing off the season with a "cliff hanger" against undefeated Worthington, the Norsemen really hit
their stride. Coach Dave Tjosvold lauded the team and had that "wait-'til-next-year" air about him as
he looked forward to the 1970-71 season.

Each student's life is unique, because each student is unique. A different goal, a different searching, a
different yearning has brought this student body together - individual by individual. And having
reached the doors of this institution of higher education they disperse and begin, more than likely, not
the first, nor the last stage in the search for personal fulfillment.
What is found within depends mostly of what one wants, and, just as important, if not more, how much
will be given and absorbed. So, each does his "thing" To some, school is books, nothing more. Yet to
others, organizations, activities and social life are the number-one reasons for attending. And yes,
there are infinite levels between these two which have been established by some 1700 students.
Now is extended a prayer that each and every individual will eventually attain contentment and peace.
For it was the search for this kind of harmony and tranquillity that brought us together here and will
someday pull us away - out of a student's life.
