You had to make sure that there was an organization-that students knew 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:06.841
where the organizations were that helped them. As I recall there was 00:00:06.841 - 00:00:12.480
a couple of little flyers or something that I got involved in, 00:00:12.480 - 00:00:15.817
using the students in the dorm there as examples, people I knew, 00:00:15.817 - 00:00:22.155
just asking them some questions, and the purpose of this was- 00:00:22.155 - 00:00:27.396
and I do forget what they called that-but the purpose was to make sure 00:00:27.396 - 00:00:33.233
that students weren't just drifting along and not knowing things 00:00:33.233 - 00:00:35.936
they needed to know. So it was kind of [to] inquire. We tried at one time 00:00:35.936 - 00:00:43.647
a little buddy system, and that seemed to work for some people 00:00:43.647 - 00:00:48.249
and not for others, but the whole purpose 00:00:48.249 - 00:00:50.452
was to make sure 00:00:50.452 - 00:00:52.555
that people in the class knew what they needed to know. 00:00:52.555 - 00:00:56.757
