Plan Would Separate Undergrads and Grads

The proposal to move all undergraduates to west campus and to turn East Campus, Senior House, and Walker Memorial into a "Graduate Center" is a plan whose time has come ["Deans Consider Moving All Undergrads to West Dorms," Nov. 1, 1994]. There is altogether too much fraternizing between undergraduates and graduates, and separating them will help alleviate the problem.

Furthermore, I believe that Dean Arthur C. Smith and Senior Associate Dean Robert M. Randolph should ban graduate students from the Student Center and make it a punishable offense for undergrads and grads to speak. They should consider segregating the Institute hallways as well, perhaps only allowing graduate students on the odd floors, and undergrads on the even ones.
