Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 3. 1967.

Calendar was issued latest ever

Calendar was issued latest ever

This Year the Victoria University Calendar was issued on the latest date ever. It wasn't on sale until the middle of February. One of the two main University booksellers had no calendars for the first day of enrolment.

The 1966 Calendar was released in two parts. It broke a way from the established format of one large, complete Calendar. This was to speed up publication. Parts of the Calendar were to be completed as early as the previous June. The time required to bind the two volumes was thought to be less than for the large one.

Change came after the Student's Association complained about the lateness of the 1965 Calendar. After the release of this the science faculty published thirteen corrections.

Salient announced in September '65 that it was believed publication of the Calendar in two parts would allow Part I to be released in October and Part II in early December.

One of the two major university booksellers said timetables, booklists and other information were not coming in on time. Part of the blame for this lay with the university.

Mr. Cotterell, the Assistant Registrar, explained that the second part had been delayed by the necessity to publish "appointments pending" and "new regulations in process" at that time. The administration wanted as accurate a Calendar as possible since students could be misled if courses had been altered. Students who wanted information about the times of their courses before the release of the Calendar could get it from the Departments. Mr. Cotterell said.

Asked if he thought the Calendar was late, he replied, "No doubt it was late. It is hoped it won't happen again."
