Arts Faculty Evening

Arts Faculty Evening

Considering what few chances a student has of meeting on more-or-less equal terms his lecturers, it is a pity that there were not more gathered at the Arts Faculty fresher's evening, organised by the Students' Association Executive, in the staff common room on Tuesday, March 15 at 8 p.m. Small groups engaging in animated discussions, supper—that was all. Yet the evening was enjoyed. Many lecturers do like to know something more of their students than is revealed to them by a row of faces or a pile of examination papers.

Professor Gordon presided for most of the evening, introducing the stair members who attended, and distributing name-tags. Mr. Galvin, the President of the Students' Association, said a few words after supper. He sounded a note of warning to the freshers not to think that the Professors and Lecturers [unclear: were] specially favoured "in having such a (comparatively) luxurious common room. We will have our own, equally as good, in another five or six years."
