Computer terminals installed at the 10,000 student college allow students to enroll "on-line," doing away with long lines and difficulties in getting information about class schedules and fees. In addition, this computer terminal installed in a trailer brings registration facilities to high schools and shopping centers, where Anna Woodcock, of Hollywood, Florida, enters classes for the Fall quarter into Broward's IBM computer for Susan Jarvis, of Plantation, Florida. Waiting his turn is Joel Hakam, of Pembroke Pines, Florida."
