We, 400 freshmen, the largest
class of "Bees" Saint Ambrose has
ever seen, arrived by car, bus, plane

while Joe Ryan was chosen to represent the off-campus students. Don

class at the weekly student council
meetings. In turn, they are to make
known to the class the outcome of
the council meetings. In addition,
they serve on special committees set
up by the council.
