Student Health Services provided physical examinations for all incoming students. Jews and African Americans were counted apart from all other students. This information went directly to President Coffman who constantly monitored the number of Jewish and African American students and their housing needs. The monitoring contributed to the creation of a campus racial hierarchy.
