    The design and production of this publication are the work of the students of the American Studies Book and Magazine Production Workshop, College at Old Westbury. The Literature, Journalism, and Publishing Concentration of the Old Westbury American Studies Program, of which the Production Workshop is but one class, exemplifies the college's pledge to provide students with courses which will be relevant to them in their lives after graduation. The students began class in February 1976 with almost no prior knowledge of book or magazine design or production. Now, four months later, the class has completed its final project, this publication on the history of the College at Old Westbury.

    S.U.N.Y C.O.W. an autopsy or "You'll have to eat the cake with your fingers: I've got the forks counted."
    (1970) Hebert, Tom
    The City University of New York's College of Old Westbury was an experimental college that based its philosophy around a community living-learning concept. The College, unfortunately, was unable to survive because of several gross inconsistencies in the education/community process. In this document, the author points out the necessary elements for such a living-learning institution to survive. The author feels that the campus environment grows out of the chemistry of three elements: people, space and events. There is a need for a full and continuing analysis of people participating or served in the college, and there should be a large mix of people with, a varied spectrum of interests. Space should be flexible and open in order to enhance creativity, and the more persons that are utilizing an area of space at one time, the better for increased communication and activity. Events are the result of a proper mix of people and density of space. Events should normally be kept small, using large events as punctuation only. Programs should be planned so that various persons might be involved and should be flexible enough to have room for improvement. (Taken from Document Resume in ERIC - ED070425)
