The Treshman class is also placed in The Tall
secTion, Tor This class is mosT represenTaTive oT
ThaT season as iT enTers a new school, makes new
acguainTances, and Taces new experiences.
Sophomores and juniors are placed in The winTer

supposed To be The "blossoming Time" Tor ThaT
The organizaTions are spread over The Three
