President Edwards

Change and expansion are familiar at Clemson
University. Anyone who knows our campus can tell you
how its skyhne has dramatically changed and how enroll-
ment has grown in the past 10 years.

This year we have been witnesses to yet another
major period of change and expansion. With six major
construction projects under way and an enrollment on
campus of 9.461 students, we've all had to become
accustomed to some new ideas-including changes in
parking and traffic patterns.

This time in our University's Hfe, however, will
not be remembered solely because of changes on campus
and our personal adjustments to those changes. More
significantly, I believe, this year will be remembered
because it signals the fulfillment of some important
goals we set several years ago.

Among these goals was a determination to focus
our educational programs on the needs of people; to ded-
icate ourselves to quaUty, not quantity; and to imple-
ment a physical and human resources expansion that would
complement an on-campus enrollment of 10,000 by 1975.
As you reflect on the events of this year, I think you will
understand why I believe we are entering a phase of
fulfillment in the University's history.

Last fall when our on-campus enrollment passed
the 9,000 mark, many people wondered out loud if our de-
sire to limit enrollment to 10,000 would be forgotten.
Emphatically, it will not be forgotten. We still believe
that we can maximize quahty only by hmiting enrollment
to the number we feel we can handle in support
services-physical and otherwise. There are no advantages
to growing larger than 10,000 and there are many disad-
vantages. No one institution can be all things to all

One of the worst things that can happen to a
University which becomes big in numbers is that it
becomes impersonal. That will not happen during my
tenure at Clemson; to de-humanize this campus would
be a tragedy.

You may ask how we propose to limit our enrollment
if demand for an education at Clemson continues to grow.
Certainly it is not our desire to turn away quahfied
students in our state. There are several factors which
we beheve will help us meet this situation. First, it
has become obvious that college enrollments, nation-wide,
have peaked. The post-war "baby-boom" students are
completing their educations now. Even more significant
is that the State of South Carolina through the General
Assembly is not only developing basic poHcy, but is
also providing a system of post -secondary education
designed to meet the needs of all the people in our state.
One aspect of this design is career-oriented technical
education center and community colleges which are satis-
fying the educational requirements of an increasing
number of South Carolinians.

r 3*

Much more important than enroUment numbers
and the rise of new buildings is the quality of Clemson
educational programs. In that regard, Clemson seeks to
be second to none.

Our nation now faces the most urgent demands on its
resources-including human resources-in its nearly 200-
year history. Solving these problems will require an
■» f^ explosion of creative energy at the professional and
I Y^ scientific levels. This creative energy will come from
^v Vy nien and women who learn and teach at institutions like

C lemson University. Indeed, we must hope that by the end
of this decade, we will have made further progress than
we did in the previous 15-17 years.

In its role toward solving these problems and
helping man understand and live in this changing, com-
plex world, Clemson will be distinguished by both its
program content and the results its programs will pro-
duce. Clemson's leadership in the field of bioengineering
and other health-related engineering is certain to con-
tinue. Clemson's nursing program and its development of
better health care delivery systems will become increas-
ingly important to the welfare of South Carolinians.
Perhaps Clemson's most dramatic advances will be in the
field of agricultural science as our nation and the
world wrestle with the age of scarcity.

Long after the present period of physical change
and expansion fades from memory, the accomplishments of
those who learn here, as well as those who teach and
conduct research at Clemson, will have an impact on the
way people live. This, to me, is what gives purpose to
our educational mission.

The Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees began a new year
with three new members and a real concern for
the interests of the students. In the spring
of '73 they approved new. more hberal hours
for open dorm visitation without undue urging
by student government or the students them-
selves. In the summer while the students were
gone, they quickly vetoed any efforts to trans-
form Roman Field into asphalt and parking
spaces. They have shown a desire to be more
open-minded to the desires and needs of the
students. Hopefully, this spirit will continue
in the quest for a more progressive, more
involved, and a more ijiterested governing body.

Alumni Association

By popular belief, the Alumni Association
serves as a link between the students and past
students of Clemson University. By its publi-
cations and service activities, the association
serves to promote Clemson University and pro-
vide funds for scholarships, and new programs
that cannot be funded otherwise. The associa-
tion's job is not a glamorous one and unless a
student receives a scholarship or something to
that effect, he will seldom hear of it. This
year the Student Alumni Council sought to
change that image with several programs geared
especially to the students. The council may
or may not have been successful, but at least
the students knew an Alumni Association existed
before, instead of after, that faithful day in

It is easy to explain what administraters are if one
looks in the dictionary. To students who must live under
their rules, their policies and their control, however,
the definition is less clear. Students on the average are
at Clemson for four to five years. Administrators are
here for as long as they wish to stay. Administrators may
sit back in their chairs, listen to requests with mock
interest, and excuse the student with the unspoken thought
that "He'll only be here for another year. I can put him
off that long." Or they may pay attention to the stu-
dent's suggestions and try to implement those that will
be of real value to the school.

However, maybe the student should realize who affects
him most. It is not Dr. Edwards and the Executive Council.
Their job is one of business and pubhc relations, and
they handle this job well. The men and women in Student
Affairs have the real control over the student. It is
these people who must work more closely with students and
try to listen to their desires, and put their ideas into

This year Student Body President John Pratt and
Senate President Bill Findley both felt that the adminis-
tration had been cooperative and open towards student

opinion. However, the year saw the Student Affairs office
overrule the Supreme Court in a case involving sign-in
rules for visitation. Opinions varied. Some students
thought the ruling was a "slap in the face" to students;
others thought it justified from a security standpoint.
The Student Senate also asked that Curriculum Committees
in the various colleges include students. Some deans
agreed, but others did not. In the area of housing. Resi-
dence Halls grew stricter, and student desires were given
little credit after the contract was signed.

The administration did seem at times to be more con-
cerned with pleasing the public and the State Legislature
than the student. Administrators must reahze that the
main purpose of any university is to train and educate the
student. Of course, the public interest is important
since Clemson is a state supported school. However, the
public does not attend college and their lives are
not affected directly by most decisions made at Clemson.
The administration showed a tendency to become stagnant
and let things remain the same. As progressive as the
education and research departments are at Clemson, a
"status quo" has no place on this campus.

Student government at Clemson is often criticized
for its lack of power or lack of service to the stu-
dents and rightfully so. Every representative body
must be prepared to accept such criticism as a part
of its job. Situations, such as failure to recognize
Student Union as a student organization before giving
them $32,000, cannot help but draw attention. However,
in the end, the good probably outweighs the bad.

Student government sponsered the Homecoming
Pageant during Tigerama, and also organized the Stu-
dent Organizations Night at the beginning of the year.
Branches of student government provided such services
to the student as refrigerator rental, pep rallies,
and outside speakers.

In many ways, student government this year at
Clemson did help the student. It has a long way to
go, though, before it reaches its full potential.
To do so, it needs the support and interest of the
students more than it has received in the past.

Alpha Phi Omega

Alpha Phi Omega, one of the largest
National Fraternities in the U. S., was
established at Clemson in 1940. Since that
time, the brothers of Gamma Lambda
chapter have served the University stu-
dents and the surrounding Clemson area.

Throughout the year, the brothers
experienced the satisfaction of helping
others in running a shuttle bus service
from the parking lots, having weekly
projects for a local orphanage, showing
the Friday Flick, and operating the
A. P. O. Book Exchange. Numerous other
projects such as the infirmary service,
vorking with Head Start, and a Christmas
tree lighting showed that the brothers
are dedicated to the ideals of leadership,
friendship, and service. Alpha Phi Omega
is a fraternity that has shown Clemson that
it cares.

Gamma Sigma Sigma

The members of the Girls Service
Sorority are involved in serving their
fellow students and the community. The
organization is now a colony of Gamma
Sigma Sigma, the national service organi-
zation, and will soon become a chapter.

Girls participated this year in
several projects including baby-sitting,
infirmary duty, and visiting the Cliildren's
Home in Anderson. In the past the girls
have helped with the APO Book Exchange
and the local carnival for retarded children.

Many girls found that in GSS they were
no longer faceless numbers. They become
real to the people they help, and they found
that it was in giving that they received the

Christian Science Organization

Christian Science is a religion that
challenges Man to elevate His thinking
and to more fully realize His unlimited
potential. Christian Science Organiza-
tions are groups of students, composing
chapters at 500 colleges.

What is Christian Science Organiza-
tion? It is people sharing the desire to
learn more of the Christian Science way.
It is a time when serious, meaningful
ideas can be exchanged and contemplated
in an atmosphere condusive to natural
easy friendships. It is an escape from
pessimism to a realistic method of
progression towards the all-encompassing
power of Love. Its aim is to promote a
heaUng atmosphere for the campus, the
community, and the world. All this is
the Christian Science Organization.


The Forever Generation

"What is truth?" This question
from the hps of Pilate at Christ's trial
is still being pondered by today's

Members of The Forever Generation
believe that truth is not relative but
absolute in His written word, the Bible.

Whereas every "now generation" or
man-centered movement will eventually
pass away, God's Word and those who have
beheved its message and received Christ
as their personal Savior will hve forever.

This message is clearly expressed in
Isaiah 40:8, the organization theme verse,
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but
the word of God will hve forever."

Turning from their old way of life,
members of The Forever Generation give
testimony to Christ's transforming power.
Activities include Bible studies, prayer
and testimony meetings, recreation seminars
on topics of student concern, weekend
retreats, and a personal out-reach to other
students at Clemson University.



Fellowship of Christian Athletes

The FCA has grown rapidly in its few
short years of existence here at Clemson
University. Its members strive to con-
front athletes and coaches, and through
them the youth of the nation, with the
challenge and adventure of following Clirist
and serving him through the fellowship of
the church. We here at Clemson this year
became more active in speaking engagements
and visiting with the local civic groups in
the surrounding counties. Members recognize
the importance of Christ, not only in
athletics, but in their daily lives as



Clemson Forensic Union

The Clemson Forensic Union is the
coordinating body for the university's
forensic activities. The Union is made
up of the Calhoun Forensic Society,
Delta Sigma Rho— Tau Kappa Alpha, the
Student Speakers Service, and the inter-
collegiate debate team. The Union's
activities include participation in
campus, community, and intercollegiate

The Calhoun Forensic Society,
Clemson's oldest student organization,
sponsors the Union's campus activities.
In 1973-1974, these included the Speech
Night Contest, competition for the 68th
annual Trustees Medal, parliamentary
procedure workshops for campus leaders,
monthly "Speak Out" programs, a "Night
of Oral Interpretation," a forum for
presidential election candidates, and a
series of on-campus platform debates with
Harvard, Princeton, Anderson, Bob Jones,
and Wellington University (New Zealand).

Members of DSR-TKA and the inter-
collegiate debate team traveled to
twenty-one tournaments during the 1973-
1974 season. While the teams traveled
mainly on the southeastern circuit, trips
were made to Massachusetts, Ilhnois,
Pennsylvania, and Indiana. Union members
also participated in several individual
events and contests, entering events
such as discussion (Clemson won the
National Contest for Public Discussion
in 1973), persuasive speaking, oratory,
oral interpretation, solo and duet acting,
extemporaneous speaking and readers
theatre. The Forensic Union also sent
delegations to the Harvard National
Model United Nations and DSR-TKA
National Student Congress (Clemson was
rated the outstanding delegation in the
1973 DSR-TKA Congress).

The Student Speakers Service spon-
sored programs at a number of local liigh
schools and community organization
meetings. The speakers service also
coordinated a tour of South Carolina
high schools by members of Clemson's and
The Citadel's debate teams.

Spanish Club

The purpose of the Spanish Club is
to aquaint students with Ufe in Spanish
speaking countries. This year, it gave
students a change to see the culture
and civilizations of such countries as
Spain, Mexico, Cuba, Panama, Ecuador, and
other countries. The club scheduled trips
and slides and exhibits showing artcrafts
from different Spanish speaking cultures
of the world and sponsored many informal
get togethers.

German Club

Established in 197 1 , the German Club
is a member of the National Federation of
Students of German. Trips played a large
part in the club's activities for 1973-74.
The members travelled to the Alpine
Village of Helen, Georgia to help cele-
brate the "Oktoberfest" and to a German
restaurant in Underground Atlanta. The
club also helped produce a German play
sponsored by the German Department, and
provided German films, records, and guest
speakers from Europe at its meetings.
Through these activities, the club gained
a better understanding of its members, of
