There was some concern on registration day when only 800 students showed up but late registrations have swelled the ranks to 964 compared with 939 on the si mi la- date last year. A number of courses will be starting later this fall and col- lege officials are optimistic that when registration for these courses is completed, they will meet their enrolment objective.

"We are not afraid to bring in new courses or drop any that obviously aren't meeting a he said. "Some institu- tions seem to cling to out-dated programs even though nobody wants them anymore." Mr. Schmidt said it appears that there is waning interest in college and university prepara- tory courses and this program will likely be reduced until it is only a small part of the over- all program. He said the University of Lethbridge's mature student entrance policy has had a def- inite effect on the college's preparatory enrolments. Since the need for this type of course is diminishing, Mr. Schmidt said there isn't any point In trying to hang onto it in the present form. "We have to change to meet the needs of people as they exist today, not as they existed he said.
