Finally, Some Good News: Campus '75

Banowsky, William S.
July 1975
National Review;7/18/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 27, p765
The article expresses optimism from observable changes in the attitudes of U.S. college students in the 1970s. According to the author, for the past four years, educators across the nation have observed important changes in student attitudes. At first, as the campus combat began to subside, the growing optimism was most cautiously noted. Students paid scant attention to the recent trial of the eight Ohio National Guardsmen indicted as a result of the tragic 1970 shootings. According to the author, today students are more academically intense than students of either the Fifties or the Sixties.
