Words of Wisdom

“Successful assimilation into the Gustavus community requires the acquisition of many new skills. On the academic level, the freshman, confronted with responsibility for his own free time, must perfect the skill of time allotment. Similarly, now that Mom and Dad aren’t around to awaken the new college student on Sunday morning, he must discover for himself his spiritual needs and decide for himself how to most effectively gratify them. Most difficult, however, the freshman must blend into the daily social milieu of the campus, lest an innocent betrayal of ignorance should prompt a pack of upper class fraternity men to stop, point their fingers, and yell, HEY! LOOK AT THE FRESHMAN!” Molly Wigand, in the Gustavian Weekly, October 5, 1973
