Handbook for Women in Residence (Sororities and Residence Halls), University of Kentucky 1955-56
In this booklet the House President’s Council has not tried to answer any sixty four dollar questions, but to give you a simple guide for everyday group living. Whether you are an acceptable member of your group will be determined not only by whether you live according to the “letter of the law,” but whether you observe the spirit as well. We hope that you will consult this little booklet often and, when in doubt, talk things over with your head resident or student counselor.
We look forward each year with keen anticipation to the return of our old students, and we greet with enthusiasm our new girls. May the year in your residence group pay great dividends in happiness and personal development. Sarah B. Holmes, Dean of Women
