The School of Dentistry has a chartered chapter of the American Student Dental Association. This was organized to promote active participation by undergraduate dental students in the affairs of their own dental organizations. As a result, students are better prepared to assume their place both in the profession and society after graduation. Membership in the chapter is voluntary for all undergraduate dental students and includes privileges of attending all dental meetings of the local, state, and national organizations. Each member receives the Journal of the American Dental Association.
Dental students are encouraged to take an active interest in the various social, dramatic, literary, and religious organizations. However, it should be stated that with regard to all forms of such activities the policy of the faculty has always been that the student’s first duty in college is attention to study and that no other activity should be allowed to interfere with the student’s main purpose.
