Eric W. Kierans
During your undergraduate years at the University you have been encouraged to pursue studies in a number of different disciplines. These courses have ranged from the commerce courses of accounting and law through the social sciences to the humanities. We trust that you have gained an appreciation not only of the social, political and economic environment which you now enter but that you have also gained a better knowledge of the dignity, the rights and the responsibilities of the individual.
A major responsibility rests upon you since many will attain positions of power and influence in the community. You are equipped for leadership and constructive participation in the affairs of the nation and the continued stability of our liberal and democratic institutions demands your support and effort.
The best wishes of the staff of the School of Commerce go with you.
Eric. W. Kierans,
Director of the School of Commerce

Plant tours are organized for the purpose of allowing the student to familiarize himself with different types of industry and to acquaint him with their commercial problems, thereby broadening the student’s scope for future employment. Commerce was well represented in athletics with intramural touch-football, hockey, basketball and volleyball teams.
