areas besides the classroom and laboratory. A
well-organized student council promotes special
holiday dances and other events during the school
year, and the successful sports program is en-
thusiastically backed by students and faculty
alike. The campus paper, planned, written and
made up by the students and printed on the
presses of the local daily newspaper, attracts stu-
dents interested in that field. Other activities are
offered to suit the tastes and talents of all.
As one Aiken County Center student ex-
presses it: "lVe are proud to be a pa1't of such
a fine institution, for here we have formed not
only the basis for many lasting friendships but
also we are receiving a solid foundation on which
to build for the rest of our education and our
Aiken County Center students and their par-
ents, alike, are grateful to the citizens of the
county and the University officials who made the
establishment of the center possible. A debt of
gratitude is due Sen. Edward C. Cushman, J r.
for his tremendous interest and efforts and to all
other members of the county legislative delega-
tion and to Mr. Francis A. Townsend, chairman
of the county's higher education commission, and

Aiken County Center's Main Entrance.
WILLIAM CECIL CASPER
The Aiken County Center of the University
of South Carolina, established three years ago,
has steadily pushed onward toward becoming an
outstanding part of the University's OH-campus
system. It has consistently maintained the Uni-
versity's high standard of excellence and at the
same time increased its enrollment.
Housed in a handsome old Southern mansion
on a four-acre lot with stately trees, twining ivy
and camellias and azaleas of another era, the
Center offers up-to-date, quality education in
almost every field. A student may earn two years'
credit in the fields of arts and sciences, education,
business administration, engineering, journalism,
law, pharmacy and medicine. A complete two-
year secretarial program is offered, too, for per-
sons interested in specializing in that field, and
nursing courses are to be expanded as needed.
In addition to freshman and sophomore resi-
dent credit requirements, the Aiken County
Center offers courses of special interest in the
community. This year, classes in archaeology,
real estate, insurance and industrial statistics at-
tracted many adults from Aiken and surround-
ing areas. Teachers in the area, too took advant-
age of the graduate education courses offered to
help them achieve or maintain their certification
A up-to-date library has recently been com-
pleted, and other improvements are planned soon.

In July, 1959, the University of South Caro-
lina and Beaufort Higher Education Committee,
which consists of Marvin H. Dukes, Chairmang
T. Parker Jones, Vice Chairmang Mrs. Lee
Bradburg, Secretaryg Howard P. Cooperg and
Jerry Reeves, began operating the Beaufort
Center. The first classes met in September in five
rooms of historic Beaufort College Building.
Since 1959 the student body has grown from
seventy to one hundred thirty five, and the faculty
has increased from six to fifteen. The Center
offers a full two-year university program.
The Center now occupies the entire ante-bel-
lum college building. For the first time in more
than a hundred years, this historic building is be-
ing used for the purpose for which it was built.
Extensive restoration of the building was begun
this spring. When the 1964 Fall session opens
the University students will attend an estheti-
cally pleasing and functionally adequate build-

these students to receive a quality education at
