IS IT?
The
NFCCSfrepresents
the
Catholic
college students ofthe U. S. A. in national and international affairs. So, justwhat is
it?-
-a union. It is
"an aililiation
of the student bodiesof Catholic institutions of
h 1 She 1
learning, directly concerned with the unification of Cat
holloa col lege
student activities." Like the steel-workers
and
carpenters,
Catholic
collegestudents have a union.
$sJow
what does this union propose to do
tor
its mem
bers?
One of the chief purposes of the
NPTCCS
is to acquaintCatholic students with their responsibilities to the studentcommunity an

to
the post-student
community.
This
meansnothing more than to take an active
part
in campus organizations; to work with others toward a common good; toprepare yourself for
the
big job of life ahead of
you.
|
Another purpose of
the
NPCCS is to contribute to Catholic lay leadership. It also acts as a center for information,and as a medium of exchange, on student affairs.In this organization the individual, is important and isappreciated. The simplest way to become a part of it
is
