The Southern Regional Division of the University of Nevada, popularly known as Nevada Southern, had its beginning in Las Vegas in 1951 with extension classes offered at Las Vegas High School Dr James R. Dickinson was its first director, serving as the only administrative official and as a member of the faculty with Dr Arthur Palmer and Mrs. Lee Pivornick.
Headquarters for Nevada Southern was then a sma office tucked away in a corner of Las Vegas High School with enrollment the first year of 41 For some time the sma I staff sufficed but as time went on, with mounting interest in the college, classes grew, several new instructors were added to the faculty list, and the branch was moved to larger quarters in the Las Vegas High School Auditorium
In 1955, the Board of Regents authorized the Southern Regional Division and in the early summer
of 1957, the first Nevada Southern campus building, Frazier Ha I, was completed and ready for use. Soon afterwards, with the appointment of Dr William D Carlson as Dean, Nevada Southern established its position as a full-fledged college of the University of Nevada.
Last fa I, Nevada Southern had over 1 100 students enrolled and at present the Maryland Parkway campus has five buildings: Frazier Ha I, Grant Hall, the Health and Physica Education Building, Science-Technology Building and the U S. Radio- logica Laboratory The new, circular ibrary, which wi I house over 100,00 books, opened last spring.

THE UNIVERSITY'S GRADING SYSTEM IS:
A Reserved for exceptional work earns 4 grade points per semester hour
B Above average, 3 grade points
C Average, 2 grade points
D — Passing, 1 grade point
F — Failure, no grade points. An F may also be “earned" by a student who stops attending class without officially withdrawing from it
W Withdrawal without failure means a student has dropped a course while making a passing grade. It carries no credit for graduation.
WF Withdrawal with failure means course dropped while failing. It counts as an "F" in computing grade point balance and scholastic average.
I — Incomplete — a neutral mark. Given only when a student has been performing satisfactory work, but for some reason beyond control has been unable to complete the required work in the course during the semester or session. Consult your catalog for the procedure for removing an incomplete.

15
WATCH YOUR GRADE POINTS THEY'RE IMPORTANT!
You must have a C average in order to be graduated. If you fall 12 points below a C average, you will be on probation. 22 points below a C average is cause for suspension.
You don't need a magic formula to keep an eye on grade points. Figure them this way:
List your grades, multiply each one by the semester hours in that course — add a I of them together, then divide by the total number of semester hours attempted, excluding Incompletes.
23 divided by 1 4 _ 1.62 grade point average

Your grade point balance is figured by multiplying the total number of hours attempted by 2 (C average) and subtracting it from your total grade points (i.e. 14 credits X 2 28). 28 subtracted from 23 = —5 grade
point balance. You may review your academic record in the registrar's office except during the busy periods of registration and recording final grades.

A VARIETY OF COUNSELING and student personnel services are offered at Nevada Southern by the counselors, Dr Robert Kittredge and Mrs. Nel Jeffers.
Heart of the program of student personnel services is the counseling program, which includes educational, vocationa and personal counseling. Students can see Dr Kittredge or Mrs. Jeffers in regard to such matters as test interpretation, difficulties with overall course work, improvement of study habits, change of major, long range educational plans, and personal problems.
The Counseling Office also handles (1) testing and other orientation activities for new students, (2) applications for University and other types of student loans, (3) a part-time employment service, and (4) vocational counseling which ranges from the furnishing of career information or interest testing to intensive counseling in respect to requirements and preparation for a career
EACH NEW STUDENT is assigned a faculty adviser, usua ly in his major field, by the Admissions Office at the time he is admitted to the University A pre-registra- tion advisement program for newly admitted students provides for an individual conference between student and adviser during orientation week.
16
17
Your faculty adviser will review and approve a schedule of courses for you prior to registration day During the school year, your adviser will be available to answer questions, furnish information, and discuss educational and vocational plans as they relate to your major field.
THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA CATALOG you received through the mail at the same time you received your Certificate of Admission will be your academic "bible" for the next four years.
Read it carefully, preferably from cover to cover It contains the rules, regulations, requirements, prerequisites, prescribed courses and suggested curricula for all fields of concentration. By reading the catalog carefully and knowing it well, you may save yourself much time and trouble in the future. Knowing it may help you avoid unnecessary courses, can guide you to necessary courses, and can otherwise make your academic life more purposeful and pleasant
Bring your catalog with you when you meet with your faculty adviser, when you register, and retain it for your entire academic life. Its requirements govern your degree, now and forevermore.
If you should lose your catalog, a new copy may be obtained by paying $1 to the Business Office.
A STUDENT MAY BE DROPPED from class or suspended or expelled from the University at any time for negligence or misconduct upon recommendation by the instructor and with the approval of the dean and of the committee concerned.
A student on conduct probation may be recommended to the Discipline Committee for immediate suspension for any infringement of University regulations.
A STUDENT WILL BE PLACED ON PROBATION AT ANY TIME the following occur:
1
The cumulative grade-point average is below 2.0
2.
The grade-point average for each of two successive semesters is below 2.0 even though the cumulative average is 2.0 or above
3.

A STUDENT ON SCHOLASTIC PROBATION shall not be allowed to register for more than 80% of the regular number of credits of his prescribed course unless he has a grade-point average of 2.0 or better for the preceding semester and the approval of his dean.
A student on conduct probation will be required to report at regular intervals to a probation advisor appointed by the Discipline Committee.
A STUDENT WHO HAS reduced the deficiency to a 2.0 grade-point average on the cumulative record is no longer on probation. A student who had a 2.0 gradepoint average or above at the time probation occurred is removed from probation at the end of the semester in which a 2.0 average or above is obtained.
EACH STUDENT WHO TAKES 7 credits or more automatically receives an activity card. Any other student who wishes a card may obtain one by paying an extra fee. This card entitles the bearer to free admission at basketball and baseball games, free admission to all
CSNS sponsored functions (i.e. The Rebel Roast, Sno- ball. Cotillion, etc.), the University yearbook, the school newspaper, and special student rates for plays, concerts, etc.
utyenAicn
A STUDENT DEFICIENT 15 or more grade points at the end of any semester is suspended from the University If class preparation, attendance, or progress of any student toward a degree is deemed unsatisfactory, the student may be suspended from the University at any time.
Penalties: A suspended student may not register in the University, whether for credit, noncredit, or audit, in any course or program of instruction offered by the University Credit earned at another institution by a student under scholastic suspension from the University of Nevada will not be accepted by the Office of Admissions, unless the student has obtained prior approval for enrollment in the courses.
Readmission: A student suspended from the University may apply for readmission only after an interval of one semester A student readmitted after suspension is on probation.

As stated in the Orientation Handbook, "Campus dress at Nevada Southern is casual It is, however, expected that students will exercise good taste and dress in a manner which is appropriate to an educational insituation."
In 1961, the Associated Women Students passed a recommendation that women students at Nevada Southern wear no bare midriffs, no short shorts, and no re- vea ing capris. (If in doubt, "revealing" means "too tight".)
