    the engineering building, soon to begin, has caused the relocation of Annex 1 (student offices) to a rustic setting across Laurel Creek from St. Jeromes College.

    w affect all There is a serious shortage of student housing this year.

    Part of this problem is due to the increased enrolment, but an important part results from damage to rooms by students.

    Four out of five of the main apartment complexes have re- fused to rent their apartments to students. Many rooms in pri- vate homes which were available last year are no longer for rent. This attitude is a direct result of the rowdy behaviour of some students and the consequent damage.

    As students, we have a responsibility to the university, to the community, to other students, to our landlords, and. to our- selves to be sensible and careful. Dont you be responsible for loss of more student housing.

    This university is growing. To see that it grows in an order- ly fashion there is a planning department. This department has the university development and expansion planned up to 1970 and beyond.

    We question, however, the efficiency of this department. A new extension on the Engineering building has been

    planned for over a year. For five months it has been known that Annex 1 would have to be moved to make room for this extension. For four months everyone sat on their hands.

    On August 3Oth, a week and a half before registration, the moving of the Annex got under way.

    There are some vital student services located in Annex 1, including the Health Services. These has been disrupted at a time when a lot of organization is in progress for the coming school year.

    Board of Publications has been temporarily located in a seminar room in the Arts building. We have to vacate this room at the end of the week, but the Annex is not expected to be ready for us by then. We may be turning out a newspaper from the middle of the Arts parking lot, and this is planning?

    On behalf of the students of the University of Waterloo, the Coryphaeus would like to express deep- est sympathy to Dr. Hagey and his family at the loss of Mrs. Hagey .

    comes ark, s It is my pleasure to extend greetings

    on behalf of the University and its federated and affiliated colleges - St. Jeromes, Renison, St. Pauls and Con- rad Grebel - to the freshman stu- dents in arts and science. As you can see from the construction around you, we have been preparing for your ar- rival.

    It may interest you to know that

    be required to make more decisiorp in the undertaking of new responsibil-

    in the same way.

    ity than has ever been your experience before. So with the university. You will be offered a good deal of both

    So I can say that in accepting the

    professional and friendly .advice and assistance of various kinds which will enrich your learning and your life if

    challenge of university life and edu-

    you accept this help and counsel. Your university grows and prospers

    cation, you should seek a goal of

    the highest personal achievement, in the tradition of excellence already established by this university. If you do this, not only will you make the most of the opportunity in your life but also you will enrich the whole environment of the campus.

    On behalf of my colleagues and the members of the Alumni, I wel- come you as members of the Univer- sity of Waterloo and wish you suc- cess in your studies and enjoyment in your campus life.

    J. G. Hagey, President.

    only five years ago the entire enroll- ment of the University of Waterloo was less than the numbr of men and women in this years freshman class in arts and science.

    As members of the Arts and Science Faculties, you will be grad- uating in either 1968, 1969 or 1970, depending on which course you choose to take. During this period in which you will share in the univer- sitys development, you will see the student body double in number. The campus area now under development will be pretty well completed from University Avenue to Columbia Street. You will watch the construction of many new teaching and research buildings needed to serve you in other ways. The latter will include a new campus centre, additional residences, new food service facilities and book store, a new physical education and athletic building and playing fields, and so on. You will aso meet many new members of the faculty and staff who will join us during this period.

    You and your university, therefore, have a great deal in common. You are at the point of a new order of growth and development in your life, So is the university. To succeed you will have to apply considerable self- discipline and great effort to make the most of your opportunities in higher education. So will the university. Dur- ing your undergraduate years you will Dr. J. G. Hagey, University President

    Balance socic~l, acade ic life: Sfudenf president On behalf of the Student Council

    of the Federation of Students, I wel- come you to the University of Water- loo and to membership in our Federa- tion.

    You will find that life at university is a challenge, embracing far more than classroom work. Certainly, aca- demics are important; however, participation in social and athletic activities, intellectual discussion, and development of leadership qualities are all a valuable part of the univer- sity experience.

    The value that you receive from a university education is up to you. Hopefully, you are here to be edu- cated, not merely to earn enough credits for a degree. By participating in a number of activities you will be- come a mature and well-rounded in- dividual, fulfilling the true purpose of a university.

    A word of caution is necessary here. Some students become so in- terested in the extra-curricular areas of campus life that they neglect the academic side of their education. In

    university, as everywhere, a healthy sense of proportion is required.

    You have come to a new university. We are lacking in traditions; how- ever, we are lacking as well the re- straints on initiative that traditions so often bring with them. I urge you to take full advantage of both the academic and extra-curricular op- portunities available. Above all, I hope you will take pride in your University, and that one day your University will be proud of you.

    GERRY MUELLER, Student Council President

    As another September rolls around, students across the country prepare themselves for another year of academic study spiced with a little extracurricular activity. Whatever events highlight this academic year will be hardpressed to sur- pass those of the 1964-65 year. Marked by changes, serious un- rest, and sometimes more than a little humour, 1964-65 was a year with a difference for the Canadian academic community.

    Last September, hopes for Canadian unity were dashed when the force of French-Canadian nationalism disrupted the Canadian Union of Students. At the CUS congress in Toronto, three French-Canadian universities tendered withdrawal from the national organization. Soon after, English-Canadian uni- versities Laval, Sherbrooke, and Montreal joined the three in the Union Generale des Etudiants du Quebec.
