Preliminary Report on Registration 1971-72
The Registrar presented the report on Registration as at September
20, 1971.  He stated that enrolment in the Faculty of Agricultural
Sciences had increased; First Year Engineering enrolment was down; the
quota of 1,400 in Freshman Arts had not been reached, the total
registration in First Year Arts being 1,144. This indicated that the
Colleges were attracting students at the Freshman level in Arts.
Enrolment was down by 400 in Second Year Arts which could also be
attributed to a growing popularity in the Colleges and the fact that
First Year enrolment had been low the previous year. It was thought
that total enrolment would probably be approximately 1,000 less than at
December 1, 1970.  It was pointed out that the regulation prohibiting
a student with a failed year from returning to the University the
following year had also affected enrolment figures.
In the discussion it was pointed out that enrolment in the First
Year of the Faculty of Law was lower than in 1970.  It was explained
that this had been necessary in order to maintain the limit of the
overall enrolment in the Faculty to the facilities available. 5493.
Wednesday, October 13, 1971.

a courtesy to those involved should not be released immediately for
publication, members of the gallery were asked to leave.
It was noted that approval had been given to the offering of
an honorary degree to Norman John Berrill by Senate in November 1970,
and it was hoped he would be present to receive it at the Congregation
ceremonies in 1972.
