The Student-Faculty Committee has as its primary purpose the promotion of friendly and mutually beneficial associations between students and faculty members. It is a joint committee, with about twenty student members and assistants and ten faculty members, who are appointed by the president. Luther T. Prince, Jr. ['52, SM '53], served as committee chairman this year. One of the main projects of the committee has been the operation of the Student-Faculty Lounge, Room 2-290, where amid comfortable modernistic surroundings, groups of students can get together with their instructors on an informal basis. The committee has also sponsored a course in reading techniques, given to interested students by the staff of the Department of English and History.
