Dea r Alumnae and A lu mni , The material in this month 's issue of the MSM Alumnu s was prepared and edited for prospec tiv e student s by UMR 's Admissions Office and th e Office of Public Information. At the A lumni Office, we thou ght you might be interested in seeing this comprehensive picture of the ca mpus toda y, comparing it with the ca mpus when you were in school , or even keeping this issue as a reference. A lso , we th ought you might enjoy th e 54 color pictures taken by UMR photographer Ernes t G utierrez. There is another motive, too. All predictions tell us that each year there will be fewer high school grad uates during the next decade. At UMR we want to continue to attract highly qualified students and maintain our present enrollment level. W e think our programs compare favorably w ith others in terms of quality and cost and , in fact , are superior to most. We hope you will help us by sp reading the word to bright young high school students you know. This publication should give you most of the fa cts and figures you need. If you want more specific in· formation, or want us to send this publica tion or other material to a specific student , send your request to Bob Lewis, Admissions Office, Park er Hall, UM -Rolla , Rolla , Mo. 6540 I.

UM-Rolla The University of Missouri-Rolla was founded in 1870 as the University of Missouri School of Mines and Metall urgy.

There's no place like the University of MissouriRolla. It 's a combination of things: engineering, science and liberal arts degrees .. .international stature ... national ranking of eighth in B.S. engineering degrees granted ... medium-sized campus .. .individual attention ... 7,100 students ... 5,600 men and 1,500 women ... south central Missouri location ... Rolla, Mo. has a population of approximately 15,000 ... beautifulOzarks surroundings ... reasonable cost. .. career placement opportunities. AT UMR, you will be involved. Classes encourage individual participation and exploration into that part of the subject that interests you most. Laboratories will give you the opportunity to see what you have learned in the classroom. Your professors and advisers wi ll help you tailor your academic program to make it the most stimulating. Your after-class hours are yours to develop leadership skills and expand your social and cultural horizons. Extracurricular activities on campus are unlimited. You also can explore the recreational spots of the nearby Missouri Ozarks and enjoy St. Louis and Springfield, each within 100 miles of UMR. UMR is relatively inexpensive. It offers ways to help you ease your educational finances. The cooperative training program allows you to alternate work in industry with semesters of study on campus. There also are scholarships and work opportunities. UMR will prepare you for a career and for graduate study. The campus placement service will help you find the job that is right for you. The University of Missouri-Roll a can be whatever you choose to make it. It has a world to offer you. 1
