On the Quads

link to: College ReportYear--round help for first--years
The former Orientation Office has been reincarnated as the New Students Office. Recently appointed director Rebecca Snyder, AB'91, AM'96, says the New Students Office will establish a rapport with first--year students year--round, not just during the initial 12--day orientation period. With a central office located in Harper Memorial Library--open to parents and students during the summer and academic year--the New Students Office's additional programs include a second student activities fair and a concentration fair during both winter and spring quarters.

Home base for post--docs
The College's new Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts intends to pull together the wide array of Harper and Schmidt postdoctoral fellows who are responsible for teaching Common Core social sciences and humanities classes. The organization--supervised by a board of University professors from various schools and divisions--will provide the Harper and Schmidt instructors with a home base in Gates--Blake, as well as scholarly conferences and professional workshops.

Healthy minds------and bodies
The newly opened Student Care Center at the Chicago Lying--in Hospital began accepting patients on September 15. In the past, students shared services with the public. The new facility is intended just for students and promises shorter wait times. It offers the services of three doctors, a nutritionist, and a nurse practitioner, and consists of an acute--care clinic to provide medical assistance within 48 hours as well as a continuity clinic to handle routine services. Most care provided by the center is covered by the $101 quarterly student medical fee.
