Palr.i Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 KU This Junior College Student Keeps On The Go By JANE ARPE A myriad of activities keep 20-year-old Larry i Krasulak of West Palm Beach busy, involved, , and engaged, but they are all spinoffs from his : major interest completing his work at Palm , Beach Junior College next spring. Now in his second year at PBJC. young Krasulak will study architecture at the University of Florida when he receives his associate in arts degree from the Lake Worth school. A "B" student through his first year, he is studying biology, logic, health, trigonometry and analytical geometry and art history this fall and he finds his classes, particularly the latter two, require study. And he doesn't have too much spare time. To rrrr'. "J PI " l gain experience and to pay expenses, he has worked for Powell-Edge Partnership, Palm Beach architects, since his senior year at Forest Hill High School. At present, he's putting in 18 to 23 hours at the job each week and finding the job "just right for me." There are housekeeping duties at the apartment he shares with a co-worker at Powell-Edgo and a social life that includes dates with "lots of girls I can't afford to go steady now." His "biggest breakdown," he reports, is that -."Of TppT'SlHW'M - - jr he can not fit in more research and supplemental study into his schedule. "For my own good, I would like to be able to go deeper into my studies. Not just art. but the humanities in general. But some things you just have to give up." He fits the junior college atmosphere modern, uncluttered, trim, many-dimensioned, but all of a piece. There is no "average student" at Palm Beach Junior College. With a wide-range of courses one- and two-year vocational and technical as well as college-parallel studies and special interest and vocation classes for adults not interested in college credits, PBJC attracts a great variety of students. Nor could Larry be termed "typical." for his drive, intelligence and maturity are unusual. But he is certainly representative of the students who find the school fits their need for a day school which will provide the academic training ho requires, a class schedule which permits him 10 earn his way, an opportunity to serve his feiiow students, and a chance for some fun under the moon or sun. :t$m, -'H fir toll V Tr - ii i ' i PEUGEOT MORE CAR THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED . . . mmmm ri Ml :$Mmm 1... v-v. vi ON THE JOB Larry spends 18 to 23 hours a week working for Pow-.Il-Edge Partnership, Palm Beach architects.
