  14. Why Residence Life? “If we could postpone the operation of our present ‘adviser’ system, which is based entirely on academic divisions, and start that with the sophomore year, it would really fit in better with the time at which students naturally are inclined to make vocational decisions. (quote continued…)

  15. Then if we could find competent tutors, both men and women, to take residence in our freshman halls, not as proctors butasreal guides and advisers of the freshman, we certainly should be able to be of much greater assistance to these boys and girls than we are at present” (Upham, 1928).
