This was a big help, to know whats here and what its like. Allan liked the tables set up in Syme Lounge which represented different college clubs and organizations. He wanted to know how he would register to become involved in different extracurricular activities. Concerns expressed by each of these high school seniors are important to most prospective students, according to admissions office personnel. Craig A. Green, vice president for college relations, said he viewed this years previews as successful because they have attracted visitors onto the campus to answer questions and to solidify opinions in large numbers at one time. Two years ago, said Green, previews (one per year) only drew 15 to 17 participants. Now the programs draw between 50 to 55 persons, three times per year. The whole idea is to get students here, said Green. Campus previews are one of the best ways to get to know a college campus. Current Westminster students aided the Feb. 10 preview. According to Townsend, current students helped pick up visitors at the airport, assisted as tour guides, and helped in planning for the event Student aides included Jean Cottrell, Ben Williams, Patti Litchfield, Angie Russell, Eva Elkins, Glen Kizzire, Jennifer Thomas, Jim Molanthy, Todd Coyle, Lance Davidson, and Michelle Maxwell. According to Townsends impression from F eb. 9 statistical reports, applications for admissions this year are fairly well ahead of those this time last year. Most of the increase seems to be coming from freshmen, which is good, said out-of-sta- te out-of-sta- te Townsend. Nineout-of-stat- e participants in this preview have already applied for attendance at Westminster. Townsend said they paid their own air fare to the preview, and the college provided their rooms and meals while they were here. d weather on Feb. 10 was par for the preview course, according to Townsend. She said staff and faculty have come to expect bad weather on preview days. One definite improvement in this months preview, over the last one held in December, was noted by Townsend and college club and organization representatives, though. In December, organization representatives were seated at tables around ASWCs Winter-fes- t and 200 CPA review class participants (lined up for lunch in SAGA), and preview participants seemed to have fled or been trampled. Snow-flurrie- Both Townsend and club representatives were pleased with the fact that this months preview afforded more room and a better opportunity for clubs and organizations to promote their causes in Syme Lounge.
