South Dakota School of Mines:1945

President Connolly's report to the Regents includes the notes that Faculty voted to keep the quarter system permanently; that the "Cooperative Plan" of education was adopted, thus allowing students to work for a company with pay to gain real world experience before graduation; that summer school is necessary to get students who are out of sync with their program back on track. [Twenty-Ninth Biennial Report of the Regents of Education of the State of South Dakota to the Governor for the Biennial Period Ending June 30, 1946, Fiscal Years 1944-45 and 1945-46, Transmitted to the Legislature at the Thirtieth Biennial Session, 1947. pg. 77]
