BACHELOR OF LIBERAL STUDIES PROGRAM: Michelle Clark, the new advisor

full-time, or on-campus study. This could certainly be an option for 
any students who are leaving the university and relocating to other 
areas in the country. If you know anyone who might be interested in 
the program, please have them contact Michelle at 3-7740.
