as active as possible and to give the
students some pleasure as well as work
in their education. Membership is open
to aU forestry majors and other students
interested in forestry.

Last year's club sent twenty-six
members to the Conclave in Florida and

Graphic Arts Society

The purpose of the Clenison Graphic
Arts Society is to further graphic arts
education by giving students practical
experience in the field and by getting
other people interested in graphic arts.
CGAS is a student oriented organization
designed to interest students in graphic
arts and designed for participation by
ALL students. Members of CGAS became
involved in designing, laying-out, and
printing for other organizations. Through
such activities members gained experience
in the field of graphic arts, and from
the money received for their services,
they were able to take trips to various
industries and graphic arts trade shows.

Medical Technology Club










^ -^^i^^:- ■


Being a medical technologist is no
easy job and realizing this, the Medical

members with the practical aspects of the
profession before graduation. The members,
shown below at one of the regular monthly
meetings, were able to tour three hospitals
affihated with the School of Medical
Technology program. These hospitals were
Greenville General, Anderson Memorial, and
Self Memorial.

Horticulture Club

The Clemson Horticulture Club is
made up of Horticulture majors and
minors, professors, and others inter-
ested enough to become involved. The
club activities encompassed special
projects such as harvesting and seUing
sweet potatoes, harvesting and process-
ing grapes into juice, and distributing
herb charts. This fall the Hort depart-
ment sponsored a student-faculty picnic.
Later in the year the club sponsored a
bull session for students and faculty
members to discuss curriculum improve-
ments. Friendships formed in this organ-
ization last throughout the years.

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers

Clemson University's student branch
of the Institute of Electrical and Elec-
tronic Engineers is a component of the
largest engineering society in the
world. The club is the voice of the
Electrical and Computer Engineering stu-
dents at Clemson. Although it considers
education to be its primary function, the
organization's members were known to
throw a few outings which had nothing to
do at all with the business of electric-
ity or computers. Seriously, dispersal
of information and service to its
members are primary objectives of the

Microbiology Society

Many other students interested in
microbiology at other colleges and uni-
versities throughout the state and nation
can be grateful to the Microbiological
Society at Clemson. It was the first stu-
dent chapter to be recognized by the
American Society for Microbiology and
as such, led the way for other students
that wished to form similar societies.

The Clemson group held regular
club meetings but also arranged several
field trips to permit the students to
learn first hand material tliat they had
studied in the classroom.

Pre -Vet Club

Because there is no actual Veterinary
Program at Clemson, the Pre-Vet Ckib is
especiaUy important to those students
planning to enter Veterinary Medicine.
The activities of the club this year
included guest speakers from speciaUzed
fields of Veterinary Medicine, a trip to
tour the College of Veterinary Medicine at
the University of Georgia, and a banquet
held in the spring of the year. In all
these activities, the club attempted to
make the education of the Pre-Vet student
more interesting and worthwhile.

it also held special gatherings such as
the annual fall picnic, department beer
bust, and the spring honors and awards
banquet when or if everyone has re-
cuperated from the previous activity.


Society of American Military Engineers

Although meetings are a necessary
part of every professional organization,
the Society of American Military Engineers
added much more to this program with the
use of films and specially invited speakers
as well as the usual presentations. A
national organization of engineers from the
Armed Forces and civilian areas, the
S.A.M.E. exists to increase the engineer-
ing potential of the United States. The
Clemson chapter tried to include four
field trips this year to various inter-
esting places throughout the eastern U. S.
