Following up on last week's report, our composite tuition advance was compiled in AIR on 1 January and turned over to B&F on 13 January. Our final cotit is 185 students, for a total of $31, 700. In the 1969 Spring Semester advance, we had a total of 132 students; total advance was $20, 983. Traditionally, the Spring Semester shows a lighter enrollment than the Fall Semester. When the remainder of the part-time academic requests for this semester have been processed (we can expect them to come "dribbling" in for the next two or three weeks; probably 30 or 40 more; handled by reimbursement) we will prepare a summary report, giving numbers of students, components, schools represented, range of courses, and amount of money involved. wi earn . his master of Science in Electrical Engineering/Communi- cations Theory from George Washington University in 1971.

OC, who is presently being sponsored in a full-time program of advanced studies in the field of Engineering Administration at George Washington University, visited OTR this week during his mid-semester break. voiced some doubts about his particular program at GWU and will make a recommendation about future use of this program when he writes his final report to OTR. He reports that the professors are inaccessible and difficult to locate, reluctant to keep appointments with students, and handicapped by outdated teaching methods -- e. g. , rote learning. Since he has completed only one semester, we agree that second semester should give him a firmer basis for making a recommendation on future use of this program.
