A Clarkson Mosaic - page 447

Hello, Mr. Chips.
A five-page story featuring the computer program at Clarkson appeared in
the May issue of
magazine. This article studying the "Computerized Class of 1987"
followed the expectations and reactions of several Clarkson students and faculty who had used
the Zenith Z-100 personal desktop computer for academic and creative purposes since they
were issued to students the previous August.
Some of those who appeared were Prof. David Bray, dean of Clarkson's Educational
Computing System; Prof. John Serio of the Faculty of Liberal Studies; and students Susan
Swift, a management and marketing major from Rochester, N.Y.; Kevin Shattuck, a technical
communications major from Clay, N.Y.; Dean Pulsifer, an ECE student from Peru, Maine; and
Lisa Steenburgh, a management and marketing major from Pittsford, N.Y.
New Degrees in Management.
New degree programs offered by the School of Management in
Industrial Management and in Marketing were accredited by the New York State Education
Department. The first prepares students for careers in manufacturing and operations. The

This musical cabaret dramatizing women's obsession with food, weight, and body
image was sponsored by the Campus Programming Committee and the Student Health Center.
A mixture of music, humor, and personal narratives, it explored the constant pressures placed
on women to be thin while focusing on bulimia, anorexia, and compulsive overeating. A group
discussion followed the performance. Combining in-depth information and comedy mixed with
song, this show had been produced in more than 125 colleges, conferences, festivals, and public
and private high schools, and on several nationally syndicated television shows.
SAT Scores of Freshmen.
Incoming freshmen scored an average of 533 on the verbal and 645
on the math sections of the Scholastic Aptitude Test, significantly above the national average of
college-bound high school students in that year. Fifty-five percent of the new students
graduated in the top 10 percent of their classes and 28 percent in the top five percent. Seventy
valedictorians and salutatorians were included in that number.
Buildings on the Hill.
Major grants from Household International, the Kresge Foundation, and
the US Steel Corporation allowed building on the hill to continue. Ground was broken for the
science and engineering laboratory to house the environmental engineers from the civil and
environmental engineering department and the faculty from the biology department. (See p.
Townhouse Apartments.
Near the new Engineering Science building, the College constructed
five new townhouse apartment buildings containing 52 apartments, with each apartment
designed to house four students. Each unit had two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, and a
living room, kitchen, dining area, and large storage area downstairs. These buildings were of
high-quality wood construction similar to Woodstock, but much sturdier. They were ready for
occupancy for fall 1984.
