00:01:04.379 --> 00:01:08.250 align:middle line:84%
This is a story of college life,
college life at the Western

Washington College of Education.

00:01:10.590 --> 00:01:13.560 align:middle line:84%
Colleges, you know, in a very
real way are like people.

00:01:13.560 --> 00:01:19.120 align:middle line:84%
Each one is different, has
a particular individuality.

00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:21.960 align:middle line:84%
The 82-acre campus and buildings
of the Western Washington

00:01:21.960 --> 00:01:26.670 align:middle line:84%
College of Education are
situated on Sehome Hill.

00:01:26.670 --> 00:01:29.550 align:middle line:84%
The school itself
was founded in 1899

00:01:29.550 --> 00:01:32.280 align:middle line:84%
expressly for training
public school teachers.

00:01:32.280 --> 00:01:34.770 align:middle line:84%
Over the years, however,
it has grown and developed

00:01:34.770 --> 00:01:39.510 align:middle line:84%
a threefold academic
program of college training.

00:01:39.510 --> 00:01:42.480 align:middle line:84%
It is located in the
colorful city of Bellingham

00:01:42.480 --> 00:01:45.720 align:middle line:90%
on the shores of Puget Sound.

00:01:45.720 --> 00:01:48.450 align:middle line:84%
To the east of Bellingham
stand the Cascade Mountains,

00:01:48.450 --> 00:01:51.780 align:middle line:84%
topped by majestic Mount Baker
with its awe-inspiring slopes

00:01:51.780 --> 00:01:53.310 align:middle line:90%
and snow-capped peak.

00:01:53.310 --> 00:01:55.050 align:middle line:84%
The mountain looks
on the campus,

00:01:55.050 --> 00:01:57.480 align:middle line:90%
and the campus looks on the sea.

00:01:57.480 --> 00:02:00.930 align:middle line:84%
Bellingham is a thriving
prosperous city.

00:02:00.930 --> 00:02:04.800 align:middle line:84%
Due north about 18 miles is
the International Peace arch

00:02:04.800 --> 00:02:07.620 align:middle line:84%
on the border between the
United States and Canada,

00:02:07.620 --> 00:02:11.039 align:middle line:84%
gateway to Vancouver,
British Columbia.

00:02:11.039 --> 00:02:14.370 align:middle line:84%
Yes, back to college
means an exciting time

00:02:14.370 --> 00:02:17.610 align:middle line:84%
as another year of
progress looms ahead.

00:02:17.610 --> 00:02:20.130 align:middle line:84%
Students arrive from
all over Washington

00:02:20.130 --> 00:02:24.930 align:middle line:84%
and many other states, as
well as Canada and Alaska.

00:02:24.930 --> 00:02:27.720 align:middle line:84%
Old friendships are
renewed and new ones

00:02:27.720 --> 00:02:30.390 align:middle line:84%
are made as the students
gather at the residence

00:02:30.390 --> 00:02:33.225 align:middle line:90%
halls and the student lounge.

00:02:33.225 --> 00:02:36.660 align:middle line:90%


00:02:36.660 --> 00:02:41.630 align:middle line:84%
And of course, that first date
for the back-to-college mixer.

00:02:41.630 --> 00:02:43.640 align:middle line:84%
There are the necessary
supplies to purchase

00:02:43.640 --> 00:02:46.310 align:middle line:84%
at the student-operated
bookstore,

00:02:46.310 --> 00:02:50.660 align:middle line:84%
and other last-minute
preparations have to be made.

00:02:50.660 --> 00:02:53.030 align:middle line:84%
Many students wish to
discuss their problems

00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:55.490 align:middle line:84%
with the Director of
Student Personnel.

00:02:55.490 --> 00:02:57.320 align:middle line:84%
Students are given
every possible help

00:02:57.320 --> 00:02:59.040 align:middle line:90%
in career planning.

00:02:59.040 --> 00:03:00.470 align:middle line:84%
It is important
that each student

00:03:00.470 --> 00:03:03.140 align:middle line:90%
develop his own plan of action.

00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:05.600 align:middle line:84%
To help the student, group
instruction in planning

00:03:05.600 --> 00:03:06.100 align:middle line:90%
is given.

00:03:06.100 --> 00:03:09.350 align:middle line:90%


00:03:09.350 --> 00:03:13.130 align:middle line:84%
Special aptitude tests
and individual records

00:03:13.130 --> 00:03:16.100 align:middle line:84%
are used to guide the
student toward his goal.

00:03:16.100 --> 00:03:19.580 align:middle line:84%
All students are given
periodic health examinations.

00:03:19.580 --> 00:03:21.410 align:middle line:84%
Every possible aid is
given those students

00:03:21.410 --> 00:03:23.640 align:middle line:90%
wishing part time jobs.

00:03:23.640 --> 00:03:27.380 align:middle line:84%
The Dean of Women offers advice
and helps guide the students,

00:03:27.380 --> 00:03:29.780 align:middle line:90%
as does the Dean of Men.

00:03:29.780 --> 00:03:31.760 align:middle line:84%
It is the policy of
the college to provide

00:03:31.760 --> 00:03:33.890 align:middle line:84%
as much opportunity
for student employment

00:03:33.890 --> 00:03:37.370 align:middle line:84%
on and off the
campus as possible.

00:03:37.370 --> 00:03:40.100 align:middle line:84%
The academic program at
Western is threefold.

00:03:40.100 --> 00:03:42.710 align:middle line:84%
Here, in this splendid
building right on the campus,

00:03:42.710 --> 00:03:45.560 align:middle line:84%
is one of the finest elementary
schools in the country, where

00:03:45.560 --> 00:03:48.260 align:middle line:84%
every facility is provided
to enable the student

00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:50.690 align:middle line:84%
teacher to acquire
firsthand experience

00:03:50.690 --> 00:03:53.580 align:middle line:90%
in the art of teaching.

00:03:53.580 --> 00:03:56.310 align:middle line:84%
First, for prospective
teachers, the college

00:03:56.310 --> 00:03:58.380 align:middle line:84%

taking a fifth year.

00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:10.020 align:middle line:84%
There is a lot of
young talent here,

00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:12.600 align:middle line:84%
and it has to be
carefully guided.

00:04:12.600 --> 00:04:15.240 align:middle line:84%
Here the professional
student has a real chance

00:04:15.240 --> 00:04:18.810 align:middle line:84%
to understand children and
to learn how to teach them

00:04:18.810 --> 00:04:20.385 align:middle line:90%
on a very practical basis.

00:04:20.385 --> 00:04:23.190 align:middle line:90%


00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:25.840 align:middle line:84%

00:05:34.710 --> 00:05:36.930 align:middle line:90%
Mm, good.

00:05:36.930 --> 00:05:39.450 align:middle line:84%
Another interesting
field is journalism.

00:05:39.450 --> 00:05:42.480 align:middle line:84%
Here, young journalists can
get the first year's work,

00:05:42.480 --> 00:05:45.060 align:middle line:84%
which includes publishing
a student-operated weekly

00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:45.700 align:middle line:90%
newspaper.

00:05:45.700 --> 00:05:48.720 align:middle line:90%


00:05:48.720 --> 00:05:51.510 align:middle line:84%
Yes, and besides the few
subjects we have touched upon,

00:05:51.510 --> 00:05:53.490 align:middle line:84%

00:05:59.760 --> 00:06:01.620 align:middle line:84%
The quiet atmosphere
helps the student

00:06:01.620 --> 00:06:03.720 align:middle line:90%
make the most of his time.

00:06:03.720 --> 00:06:06.945 align:middle line:84%
Campus day is the big rally
day of the year at Western.

00:06:06.945 --> 00:06:09.930 align:middle line:84%
The democratic and friendly
spirit everywhere cannot be

00:06:09.930 --> 00:06:11.610 align:middle line:90%
overemphasized.

00:06:11.610 --> 00:06:15.660 align:middle line:84%
There are no fraternities

with both students and
faculty taking part.

00:06:35.340 --> 00:06:37.350 align:middle line:84%
Somebody is always
sure to get wet,

00:06:37.350 --> 00:06:38.910 align:middle line:90%
but that's all part of the game.

00:06:38.910 --> 00:06:42.210 align:middle line:90%

It is truly an
inspirational location.

00:07:48.700 --> 00:07:52.160 align:middle line:90%
