and the best ways of achieving them. STRETCH used Personal Development Advisors (PDA)
recruited by the Student Life office from administration, faculty, and upperclass student body.
Each PDA met with the freshmen assigned to him or her to discuss the new students' goals and
realistic ways of achieving them, and then met again during the year to discuss progress, to
reshape goals, or to establish new ones. Each student received a small binder containing an
introduction to the program and outline of its purpose and planned implementation.
Each was to complete a 55-item self-assessment test under the five targeted areas; goal-
planning sheets completed the booklet. Over 50 faculty and administration signed up as
Mentors for this new program. A survey conducted in the second year of its operation caused
some students to be reassigned to Personal Development Advisors who were more prepared to
accept the responsibility of the position, and more freshmen to realize even more the
importance of other facets in education besides classes and studying.

for 51-99 people, up to a keg of beer, 10 gallons of wine, four
gallons of liquor, or equivalent combination.
Other regulations covered registration of the party with the Residence Life office, the
prevention of sale of alcohol, and the mandatory service of non-alcoholic beverages and food,
among others.
