WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT SMC
Going to college is fun, but it is also hard
work. If this seems to suggest a paradox, then
you have a real surprise coming. "Work" and
"fun" are inseparable at SMC. You will soon
understand that the SMC student who is well-
rounded and takes appropriate time for study,
work, and play is the one who has fun.
Going to college may be a new experience for
you, and it will be enjoyed if you make proper
preparation. You have probably asked the ques-
tion, "What can I expect at SMC?" This booklet
is an attempt to answer, at least partially, that
question. It is presented with the hope that it
will help you (both new and returning students)
better to enjoy college life.
"SMC and You" suggests a relationship between
a college and an individual. You are that person.
In order that your experience at SMC may be as
nearly perfect as possible, you will choose to
uphold high personal, social, and academic stand-
ards. This booklet should acquaint you with the
pattern of life at SMC.

in a school is an inestimable treasure. "M YP. p.

YOU AND YOUR COLLEGE
HISTORY AND PURPOSE
Southern Missionary College is owned and oper-
ated by the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-
day Adventists, which maintains headquarters at
Decatur, Georgia. The Southern Union Conference
includes the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, North
and South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia,
and Florida. Although the college primarily
serves the young people of these states, it also
accepts students from other states and overseas
Southern Missionary College is a four-year, co-
educational, arts and sciences college, authorized
by the state of Tennessee to confer baccalaureate
degrees. In addition, a number of two-year termi-
nal curricula are available for students with spe-
cialized vocational interests.
Briefly stated, the objectives of the college are
to provide standard instruction and broad educa-
tional opportunities, under the most favorable
circumstances, to such ambitious and purposeful
Christian youth as can profit by them.
Southern Missionary College is located near
Chattanooga, Tennessee, and two and a half miles
from Ooltewah, just off Lee Highway, U. S. 11
and 64. Both the Southern and the Nashville,
Chattanooga, and St. Louis railways serve this
region, for which Chattanooga is the chief terminal.
Bus service throughout the day provides local
transportation facilities. The postal and express
address is Collegedale, Tennessee.
Should you arrive in Chattanooga, call the
college for taxi service. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
call 396-2111, the Business Office. At other times,
call the dormitories — Talge Hall for men — 396-
3131; Jones Hall for men— 396-2642; Women's
Residence Hall for women — 396-2992. Leave your
baggage checks with the college business office,
and the college truck will deliver the luggage to
YOU AND YOUR COLLEGE HOME
Residence requirements: All single students
whose parents or legal guardians do not reside in
the immediate vicinity live in the residence halls.
Only by special arrangements may students under
sixteen years of age be accepted as students in the
residence halls. Any exceptions to these require-
ments may be made only by the President's Council.
What to bring: You will want to make your
room as comfortable and attractive as possible, for
this will be your home while you are at college.
If possible, before making important purchases,
wait until you can arrive on campus to consult
with your roommate, so there will not be duplica-
tions and your room furnishings may blend well
Your room will contain two single beds, a
table, two chairs, two chests of drawers, and
a closet. Rugs, pillows, and draperies are not
furnished by the college. The essential furnishings
you will need include sheets, pillow, pillow cases,
a bedspread, adequate bedding, towels, wash
cloths, slippers, a bathrobe, rain clothes, umbrella,
suitable school and work clothes (uniforms are
required in certain industries and may be secured
at the college), a study lamp, flashlight, pictures,
drinking glass, soap dish, shower clogs, an alarm
clock, shoe racks or shoe bags, and sewing kit.
Curtains for the rooms in the men's residence halls
should be approximately two and a half yards
long. The rooms are 13' x 13'. Curtain rods and
towel racks are furnished by the student occu-
In the girls' residence, curtain rods and towel
racks are included in the furnishings of the
room. The windows are 4' x 5 '4".
Matching drapes and spreads are available at
the Col 1 ege Mercantil e.
Care of your room: Your room will be main-
tained in such order as to pass inspection of the
residence hall dean each day. When you vacate
it, the room should be left clean, with walls, wood-
work, and furniture undamaged. Nails should not
be driven into walls or woodwork.
Room courtesy: Of course you wish to have your
rights respected as they concern the privacy of
your own room. No other student should enter
without permission when you are absent, and you,
of course, will extend the same respect to others.
Persons who do not reside in the residence halls
are reminded that these living quarters are not
open to the public. Should they wish to visit a
student, the customary courtesy will be expected
as if they were calling at any other private home.
Study periods: College means study, at least part
of the time. You will need opportunity to pre-
pare lessons, therefore, study periods are observed
each evening, Sunday through Thursday. The moni-
tor is on duty through the evening. It is good
practice to cooperate with him in maintaining the
quietness of the evening study period.
Loud talking in rooms and halls, the use of
radios, and visiting from room to- room are not
compatible with study. All activities such as
committees, parties, and entertainments should be
scheduled at times other than study period.
When leaving the dormitory for library study,
or other college-sponsored appointments, all stu-
dents sign out in order that their whereabouts
may be known throughout the evening. Long
distance calls and other reasons make this courtesy
Lights out: "Lights out" is synonymous with
"quiet please." At 10:30 p.m. each night, except
Friday nights at 10:00 and Saturday nights at
11:00, room lights are turned out. Monitors will
check each room and report to the dormitory dean.
Radios: There is little need for radios, but
you are allowed to bring them into the residence
halls subject to certain regulations as to their use.
Since the Women's Residence Hall is equipped
with hi-fi music, hi-fis may not be brought into
the hall. Young men may bring hi-fis, because
their dormitory is not equipped with a hi-fi sys-
tem. Radios or hi-fis are not to be played so
loudly as to- be heard outside rooms, or following
the evening worship period until 7:00 A.M. On
the Sabbath only religious music is to be played.
These regulations are designed to protect the study
period, the Sabbath, and the rights of roommates
and neighbors. The residence hall deans will ac-
quaint you with these regulations at the beginning
of the school term. TV is not permitted in your

without making proper arrangements with your

Southern Missionary College depends upon you
as a student to help operate industries, and, in
turn, you may be dependent upon the college for
a job in order to secure an education. If you
occupy a position, it will often be necessary for
you to deny yourself regular vacations as well as
regular leaves during the session. SMC must retain
the right to require your "staying by" when yo'u
Permission for leaves of absence may be granted
on the average of once a month, excluding vaca-
tions, if you do not have to miss classes or neces-
sary work appointments. Written request for
leave of absence must be filed with the residence
hall dean by Thursday noon. It is understood
that students will reach their destinations before
sundown Friday night.
Except in case of emergency, weekend leaves
will not be granted during a week of spiritual
emphasis during the period between Thanksgiving
and Christmas and during the first month of
Your weekend leave ends at 12:00 P.M. Sunday
night. Vacation leaves also end at 12:00 p.m. If a
person is traveling by public conveyance and finds
himself unavoidably delayed, his individual case
will be considered.
Young women under 21 years of age must have
written permission from their parents or guardians
for weekend leaves. Young women must also have
permission from home to invite friends or to visit
friends to or at their respective homes.
If a young man wishes to invite his girl friend
home for the weekend, he must present to the
dean of women an invitation from his mother to
the young lady involved. Or the mother should
write directly to the dean of women stating that
such plans are agreeable with her.
A young lady who wishes to invite a young
man to her home must attach to her leave blank
an invitation from her mother written directly
to the dean of women stating that such an in-
vitation has been extended.
Students who plan to visit in a home other
than the home of either of their parents, must pre-
sent to the dean of women a written invitation
from their hostess.
Collegian men and women may travel together
on weekend leaves provided there are more
women than men and no overnight stops. The
women must have written permission from their
parents or guardians for such travel. There can be
no more than six in the car.
Two Upper Collegian men and two Upper
Collegian women may travel together on weekend
leaves without a chaperone if the trip is done
with the written consent of the women's parents
or guardians and if it does not include overnight .
Collegian or Upper Collegian groups going to
places other than the home or homes of students
in the group shall make arrangements with the
dormitory deans. Such trips would include visits
to the campuses of other colleges, academies,
sanitariums, etc. Invitations must be received from
the host institution.
Couples may travel by public conveyance with-
out chaperonage on week-end leaves unless an
overnight stop is involved.
Overnight Leaves: All overnight leaves will
count as regular weekend leaves.
An overnight leave of absence to visit in
private homes may be granted upon written in-
vitation from host or hostess, and with specific
authorization of parent or guardian for this oc-
casion, regardless of the type of weekend per-
mission on file. The above regulations concerning
visiting in homes apply to Upper Collegians as
well as Collegians.
Shopping tours and concerts: The Southern
Mercantile has a wide variety of offerings, but
you may need to' visit Chattanooga occasionally
for shopping purposes. Permission for such trips
will be secured from the residence hall dean.
Collegian men and women may not go 1 shopping
together, but they may go to concerts or other
occasions in nearby cities with an approved chap-
Two Upper Collegian couples may go together
to nearby cities for shopping or concerts, etc., pro-
viding the two couples remain together for the
Sabbath trips: Sabbath activities may include
your taking part in religious services at neighbor-
ing churches as directed by the Division of Re-
ligion; others are active in MV bands. Such off-
campus activity is in harmony with proper Sabbath
observances; unnecessary trips are not. Students are
expected to adhere to the car and chaperonage
policies as outlined elsewhere in this handbook.
OFF CAMPUS PROGRAMS
1. Students may elect to attend six approved
off- camp us cultural and/or educational pro-
grams or events per year during the evening
study periods. Dating privileges are permitted
under the approved chaperonage policy.
2. Attendance at three additional programs will
be permitted by arrangement through in-
structional department chairmen and with
the approval of the Academic Dean. A g.p.a.
of 1.00 (C) must have been achieved for
Freshmen are not eligible to attend the three
additional programs until a satisfactory g.p.a.
of "C" (1.00) has been earned at the end of
the first nine-week period.
3. Students wishing to attend off-campus pro-
grams under the above policies must person-
ally seek clearance with the residence hall
deans by noon prior to the evening scheduled
Departure time — 7:15 p.m.; or after the
evening worship hour.
Return to residence halls — not later than
Late leaves, lasting until 11:15 p.m. on Satur-
days, may be arranged for by Upper Collegians.
Leaves, lasting until 10:30 p.m. on Saturdays,
may be arranged for by Collegians.
On open nights, you may wish to plan for
some entertainment off campus. To do this, you
must fill out a town trip blank or permission
blank, giving the names of all students who are
in your group, as well as the chaperone, if one
is needed for the occasion. Only one person needs
to fill out the town trip blank or the permission
blank. Collegians may have a late leave until
10:30 and Upper Collegians until 11:15. If the
occasion is a group social activity, having both
Collegians and Upper Collegians, then the time
is 10:30 p.m. Collegians must have a chaperone.
The request for an activity on open night must
be filed with the dean of women by Friday noon.
ARRANGEMENT FOR PRIVILEGES
No student, whether in the Upper Collegian or
Collegian group, is exempt from signing the reg-
ister and securing permission from the residence
hall dean before leaving the campus to engage
in any of the privileges listed for his group.
You should not invite visitors to the campus or
to the residence halls without previous arrange-
ment. When such visitors arrive, the residence hall
dean should be notified. The presence of visitors
does not authorize you to suspend any of the regu-
lations for student conduct; arrangements for spe-
cial privileges may be made with the residence hall
FIREARMS AND FIREWORKS
You will not bring any form or type of firearms
or air rifles to the SMC campus. Possession or
discharging of firearms or fireworks on the campus
is an offense against state law and school regu-
lations and may result in a fine or expulsion.
You will recognize that acute fire danger is in-
volved were you to use lamps, candles, alcohol
stoves, or matches in student rooms. The residence
halls are not wired in such a way as to permit the
use of irons, hot plates, corn poppers, toasters, or
electric heaters in student rooms; the use of such
involves a real fire hazard. A penalty of $5.00 will
be levied upon anyone violating this regulation
concerning the use of appliances.
In order to protect your life and property, a
heavy fine, ranging from $25 to $50, is imposed
for any unauthorized change of electric wiring
facilities on the campus.
You are further reminded that fire extinguishers
must not be tampered with, obviously because they
must be ready at all time for immediate emergency
use. The college buildings are equipped with
automatic sprinkler systems, extinguishers, and
hoses. Anyone who tampers with the sprinkler
system is liable to immediate dismissal.
Occasionally, there is a student who does not
respect the property of others. Carelessness in
leaving personal property in public places is poor
business. Proper care of personal property, as well
as the scrupulous avoidance of interference with
the property rights of others, is the rule for all
students at SMC.
The college does not take responsibility for
personal property lost or left behind when a
During vacation periods you and SMC will be
largely judged by your manners, dress, conduct, and
general influence. As an SMC student, you will,
therefore, maintain the standards and ideals of your
college when, during vacation periods, you return
to your home and to your local church and as you
come into contact with relatives and friends.
1. Immediately upon arrival you will:
A. Report your car to the residence hall
B. Be notified of your permanent parking
stall. When your car is not in use,
it will be parked in its stall.
2. A driving permit is granted to an Upper
Collegian whose car is properly insured
(comprehensive, liability, and medical ) .
Driving privileges will be explained to you
personally by the respective residence hall
3. No freshman dormitory student is to bring
his or her car to the campus. Sophomores,
unless they are upper collegians, will not
drive their cars without special permission
from the residence hall dean.
4. All dormitory automobile owners will pay
a fee for a parking stall.
5. Failure to register a car may result in im-
mediate expulsion from the college.
6. Upper collegians may use their automobiles
on Sabbath for church activities and should
fill out a car blank prepared for that purpose;
if the car is going to be used in other than
church activities, explicit arrangements must
be made with the respective residence hall
STUDENTS LIVING OR VISITING IN
The college expects that, should you reside in
the community or wish to visit in community
homes, you will follow the principles and adhere
to the standards of conduct governing residence
hall students. You who are parents and guardians,
as well as others living in the community, are
requested to consider yourselves responsible with
the college faculty in the conducting of a Seventh-
day Adventist college. The same degree of co-
operation is expected from you who are married
students or members of a married student's family.
Collegian couples may be invited to homes in
the community either by faculty, staff, or other
approved hosts or hostesses. Collegians must have
a chaperone to and from the home to which they
are invited. A chaperone is required regardless
of the number going.
Upper Collegian couples may be invited to
homes in the community either by faculty, staff, or
other approved hosts and hostesses. No chaperone
is needed if there is more than one couple going.
The community host or hostess who has obtained
approval for a mixed group function will be
responsible for properly chaperoned transportation
from and to the residence hall. The dormitory
deans may use their own discretion as to when
and how o c ten couples may visit community homes.
YOU AND YOUR GOD
As a church-related college in which personal
religion is emphasized, SMC has made provision
for this vital part of your life. The splendid
location of the college among the beauties of nature
and the spiritual atmosphere engendered by de-
voted students and spiritually-minded staff mem-
bers provide an incentive to each individual to
find and maintain a personal connection with
God through his own private devotions.
Daily worship; Your spiritual growth is fostered
through the medium of daily worship. In addition
to the regular dormitory worships you will learn
to appreciate the other scheduled religious appoint-
ments. Among them are Friday evening vespers,
Sabbath school, church services, and the sunset
vespers on Sabbath evening. Faithfulness in attend-
ance at these worship periods is carefully noted.
From the above services and dormitory worships
you may have four unexcused absences per month.
Should you be ill, you must have your excuse blank
signed by the nurse and present it to the dormitory
Excused Absences: Absences that are excused
must be excused ahead of time — not afterwards —
except for emergencies.
Absences due to illness will be excused only
if the deans are notified of the illness before
worship on the day the absence occurs.
Special notice: You are not to be on the campus
during the worship hour.
Sabbath observance: In accordance with the sa-
credness of the Sabbath, you as a member of the
school family will engage in public worship, rest,
and various Christian activities. Sabbath afternoon
provides time for walks, reading religious books
and periodicals, writing missionary letters, partici-
pating in group singing, visiting the sick and aged,
and engaging in missionary service as sponsored
by the Missionary Volunteer Society. As you be-
come part of the SMC family, you will appreciate
these activities more and more.
Quiet hours are announced for Sabbath after-
noons in the dormitories, and all persons are
requested to respect this time.
Weeks of Prayer: The Weeks of Spiritual Em-
phasis offer opportunity for special religious de-
votion. You will be given opportunity through
the ministry of outstanding religious leaders for
individual examination of your personal life,
which in all probability will result in spiritual
ALONE WITH GOD
Busy days require moments of restful meditation.
Take time to pray. Furthermore, take time to
participate in voluntary prayer bands. It will mean
much to you.
Chapel is conducted several times a week, and
you will find that this meeting is an integral part
of the school program for students and faculty.
Except for Sabbath appointments, this is the only
opportunity for you to meet at the same time with
everyone else at SMC. This makes the chapel
period very important from an organizational as
well as from an informational and inspirational
If the number of unexcused absences in any one
semester exceeds the number of chapel periods in
one week, the student may be issued a letter of
advice or a letter of warning.
Absences from chapel are allowed for illness,
emergency, and authorized school trips. These are
the only recognized reasons for excusable absence.
Applications for permanent absence from chapel
are presented to' the academic dean on a form
obtainable at the dean's office. Such absence privi-
lege is granted only on the basis of urgent financial
necessity or because of the key position filled.
A satisfactory chapel attendance record is re-
quired for readmission to SMC.
YOU AND YOUR CAMPUS
YOUR SOCIAL LIFE
It is the purpose of the college to give you
guidance in the development of a well-integrated
personality. The college provides you with op-
portunity to associate with others. In the resi-
dence halls, classrooms, and cafeteria, you will find
many occasions to make a large circle of acquaint-
ances and to share in a pleasant and enjoyable
The student and faculty committees on lyceum
and social programs plan the Saturday night ac-
tivities. These include music, lyceums, suitable
motion pictures, and lectures. Mixed student
groups may also plan social gatherings for them-
selves on open Saturday nights, being certain
to make all necessary arrangements with the dean
of women, the dean of men, and their chaperones
by Friday noon. These special occasions will
ordinarily be limited to open Saturday nights.
No condition or circumstance in life offers a
better opportunity for developing satisfying friend-
ships than do the associations at college. Since
the friends you make during your college days
almost certainly will be among the most lasting
in your life, it will be to your permanent advantage
to choose them well. At college the old adage,
"a man is known by the company he keeps," is
doubly true. By making many well-selected and
lasting friendships you can establish a good repu-
tation and gain the rich benefits of uplifting
associations. Noble, high-minded fellow students
are stimulating and inspiring in their influence
upon your life.
A Christian college campus is no place for
love-sick sentimentalism and infatuation. There
are other stimulating friendships available in ad-
dition to that "special one." Dignified, uplifting
association is encouraged, but discourteous action
as evidenced in unseemly behavior between men
and women or public display of affection which
would be embarrassing to faculty, visitors, and
cultured students is out of order.
SOCIAL STANDARDS AND PRIVILEGES
Only a student who adheres to Seventh-day
Adventist standards and practices of Southern
Missionary College and whose social conduct in-
dicates that he is in harmony with these Adventist
ideals for association between young men and
young women is entitled to the social privileges
afforded at the college. It is highly recommended
that each student familiarize himself with the
ideals and standards of social relations as set forth
in the writings of Ellen G. White and other
Adventist authors competent to counsel young
You are regarded by observers as a representa-
tive of SMC, and, since Christian social regula-
tions are founded on solid principles of social
conduct, they are not suspended during vacation
"Young people complain of chaperonage as
though it were something that the faculty had in-
vented last summer in a fit of ill humor. As a mat-
ter o c fact, chaperonage was invented several thou-
sand years before the oldest member of your faculty
was born. It is not a device to hamper and annoy
young people, it is a device to protect them
. . . , and render their final happiness more
sure. It is the product of a certain phase of human
experience. It exists, in one form or other, wher-
ever civilization exists. From many sad events
the race has discovered that it is not best to allow
ourselves to be too sorely tempted; that it is better,
so to speak, not to tempt temptation. It has been
learned that it is better not to permit young people
or older ones either, for that matter, since the
principles of chaperonage apply to either group —
to indulge in unsupervised association, which
might later lead to familiarities and even sin that
would be regretted, perhaps when all regrets
would be too late.
"Chaperonage is not a form of mistrust. It is
not a kind of narrowmindedness — a hang-over from
some less-enlightened age. It is simply a rule
which rests on the same basis as the rule which
prohibits smoking beside an oil tank, or lighting
matches on the premises of a powder factory." —
Gwynne Dalrymple, You and Your Problems,
If you plan for mixed groups to attend social
functions, you should submit such plans in writing
to the dean of women far enough in advance to
make sure all arrangements are properly made.
Arrangements for such events are not made
on the Sabbath nor for the Sabbath hours.
These plans will include the inviting of a chap-
erone, and no changes are to be made after ap-
proval is granted; the young men make the neces-
sary arrangements for chaperonage. Chaperonage
is not required for any event on the campus. The
regulations requiring chaperonage apply also to
Courtesy requires a ready response to any sug-
gestion of the chaperone regarding conduct, pro-
cedure, hour of departure, and other matters.
When a group is involved, the student making the
request must provide the chaperone with a properly
approved list of names. Good form requires that
the chaperone be regarded as a guest. It is the
duty of the chaperone to inform herself that ar-
rangements are definite and explicit. The chaper-
one is expected to handle emergencies, to deal
with irregularities or accidents, and to return
the group at the hour designated.
It is the responsibility of the dean of women to
approve or disapprove those suggested as chaper-
Supervision for picnics and outings shall be
ranged in the approximate proportion of
supervisor for every 15 to 20 students.
Escorting is a privilege granted to you if you
maintain a high level of conduct. You as a
young man will meet the young lady at her resi-
dence, accompany her to the appointment, and see
her directly home afterwards.
Escorting to social occasions such as Saturday
evening programs, picnics, approved parties, etc.
is in order. Walking together to and from
various appointments during the week days is
approved. Escorting after worship during study
evenings is not approved. Socializing such as
informal meetings of couples during the evening
study hours or on the Sabbath is not approved.
Loitering by escorts at the women's residence is
considered out of order at all times. Necessary
visiting may be arranged for otherwise through
the dean of women or in the Student Lounge.
Escorting for an evening campus function may
not ordinarily begin earlier than 30 minutes before
the hour of the function of the evening. The
Women's Residence Hall will be closed 15 minutes
after the end of the regular Saturday night program
or other social function. When the Student Asso-
ciation provides a social hour, it will terminate
so that each student may be in the dormitory by
10:30 p.m. (If the program ends after 10:00
p.m., there will be no social hour.) The social
hour is for college students only. All students are
expected to report at their respective dormitories
within 15 minutes after the Saturday night pro-
grams unless they attend the social hour.
Couples may walk together in groups to and
from church services. However, escorting in the
regular sense of the term is out of order during
the Sabbath hours.
CALLING AT DORMITORY RESIDENCES
The young man should make the arrangements
with the dean of women for visiting in the
Women's Residence Hall facilities.
A young man should not call at the women's
residence hall during the study period except
by previous arrangement with the dean of women.
A young woman should not make social calls
at the men's residence hall.
Couples are not to visit in the public buildings
of the campus.
Public display of affection is out of order any-
where. It is embarrassing to others and not in
keeping with good social standards.
Excessive association of couples around the
campus is out of order.
Benches are provided around the campus where
students may sit occasionally, during daylight
hours. The Student Lounge is also a recognized
meeting place for social activities.
Couples are not to sit in parked cars or to drive
aimlessly around in automobiles in the surround-
DINING ROOM ASSOCIATION
All students will be seated on the plan of two
men and two women to each table as directed by
the dining room hostesses.
The dining room is a place to become acquainted
with a wide circle of friends by dining with a new
group each meal.
When special friends dine together at supper,
they are not granted escorting privileges. They
should meet at the cafeteria for dining together.
When such couples finish the evening meal they
may go to the Student Lounge or the recreation
field and gym, but there is to be no escorting
past the Administration Building entrance where
the young man will go into worship and the
young woman will proceed to her worship.
The Student Park is for planned and approved
activities. This regulation includes week days as
well as Sabbath.
Groups planning to use the student park should
ask their respective residence hall dean for such
The period from 5:00 p.m. until 6:25 p.m.,
with the exception of Friday and Sabbath, is
considered a social time on the campus. All so-
cial activities, including students and couples
visiting on the campus or loitering on the campus,
cease at 6:25 p.m. and during the evening study
Between 5:00 and 6:25 students may use the
facilities of the gym, recreational field, benches on
the campus, or the student lounge. There should
be no loitering around the residence halls during
this time or at any other time.
ASSOCIATION AT RELIGIOUS SERVICES
Collegians and Upper Collegian couples shall
refrain from sitting together at religious services
of the Sabbath hours, but the college recognizes
mixed groups in Sabbath school classes on both
COLLEGIANS AND UPPER COLLEGIANS
There are two groups of students on the cam-
pus: Collegians and Upper Collegians. The Upper
Collegians are those students who are juniors or
seniors, or twenty years of age, or who have been
in attendance at SMC for two years. One must
maintain a 1.00 g.p.a. or better to remain in this
group. Their privileges are indicated in the fol-
Students are in the Collegian group if they are
freshmen, or are not twenty years old, or have
not been in attendance at SMC for two years, or
have a g.p.a. of less than 1.00. Their privileges
are also designated in the following paragraphs.
New and transfer students, regardless of age,
grade, or class will be in the Collegian group for
their first nine weeks on the campus.
Students go on and off the lists at the end of
each nine-week period.
When the young man or young lady of a couple
is a Collegian and the other person is an Upper
Collegian, then the couple assumes the status of
the lower group. This provision includes staff
members dating students. It also includes students
who date academy students, the two young persons
coming under the rules of the academy.
The rules in this booklet, including these on
social conduct, also apply to dormitory students
who may be dating students or non-students in
LETTERS OF ADVICE
Letters of advice are written to alert the stu-
dent to his violation of school rules and regula-
tions and put him on guard about his conduct on
These letters may be written for such violations
as repeated late entrances to the dormitory, vio-
lations of rules concerning socializing on the
campus or during study period, etc.
An Upper Collegian, who receives a letter of
advice after a faculty member cautions him about
his conduct, will lose his upper collegian status
for the remainder of the nine-weeks period.
A Collegian who receives a letter of advice,
usually after a faculty member has spoken to
him about his conduct, goes on social probation
for the remainder of that nine-weeks period.
LETTERS OF WARNING
Letters of warning are written to students for
more serious violations of school rules and reg-
ulations. Letters of warning are a second step
before suspension or expulsion.
An Upper Collegian who receives a letter of
warning loses his upper collegian status for the
remainder of the semester.
A Collegian who receives a letter of warning
goes on social probation for the remainder of that
Letters of advice and warning are placed in
the permanent file and a copy is sent to the
parents or guardians.
YOU AND YOUR STANDARDS
In order to maintain the highest Christian stand-
ards, SMC does not knowingly admit or indefinitely
retain a student who is guilty of stealing; willfully
and deliberately employing deception regarding
violations of college regulations, including dis-
honesty in examinations or classwork; gambling,
betting, possessing, or using playing cards or other
gambling devices; dancing or attending theaters,
pool halls, or bowling alleys; using or possessing
alcoholic beverages, narcotics or tobacco, or furnish-
ing them to others; using profane or vulgar lan-
guage; indulging in lewd conduct or suggestions;
displaying or possessing obscene literature or pic-
tures;, meeting persons of the opposite sex in any
secretive or clandestine manner; or disseminating
atheistic ideas or undermining the religious ideals
of the college.
"No education can be complete that does not
teach right principles in regard to dress. Without
such teaching the work of education is too often
retarded and perverted." — Ellen G. White
"A person's character is judged by his style of
dress. A refined taste, a cultivated mind will be
revealed in the choice of simple and appropriate
attire. Chaste simplicity in dress, when united
with modesty of demeanor, will go far toward
surrounding a young woman with that atmosphere
of sacred reserve which will be to her a shield from
a thousand perils."— Ellen G. White (Ed. 246).
The key words of these statements are modesty,
simplicity, and appropriateness.
While dress is ultimately an individual matter,
good sense and good taste require that certain
general standards be taken into consideration as
you plan your wardrobe. Modesty in dress for both
men and women is not only considered good taste,
but it is highly desirable from the standpoint of
economy and the impression it gives to others.
FOR YOUNG MEN
Good form requires that young men wear neck-
ties to all religious services. Coats may be dis-
carded when weather is extremely hot. Those who
work around the college buildings will wear shirts.
Neat and appropriate attire is expected for at-
tendance at the dining hall.
Men students are not to wear excessively tight
clothing. Shirts of a transparent material may be
worn only with an undergarment. Shirts must
be worn at all times in the gymnasium, tennis
courts, ball field, etc. ID bracelets and rings are
not to be worn.
A young man should wear slacks, not blue-
jeans, to classes, and he should not wear sleeveless
shirts or T-shirts on the campus unless he is en-
gaged in recreation at the recreation field or the
gymnasium. Good taste requires that young men
wear a T-shirt or undershirt under an open-neck
shirt or other shirt.
FOR YOUNG WOMEN
1. Standards of good taste demand that the
shoulder and upper part of the arm be
covered. This means that all dresses and
blouses should have sleeves. Cap sleeves
are not sleeves.
2. The neckline should be modest — not cut
low in front, back, or off the shoulders.
3. On a few occasions during the year many
women choose to dress formally ; however,
you need not feel that your college ward-
robe must contain a formal. A list of stand-
ards governing formal attire is given below.
4. Sheer or transparent blouses may not be
5 . Tight sweaters or shirts or form-fitting clothes
of any kind are not to be worn.
6. All dresses and skirts must be long enough
to cover the knees at all times in any stand-
ing or sitting position.
7. Party dresses are inappropriate for church
wear. (Dresses that dip in the back are
considered party dresses.)
8. Shorts, slacks, toreadors, slim-jims, jeans,
or pedal-pushers of any kind are not to be
worn on the campus at any time or in any
public place. The regulation recreation and
gym attire (black White Stag clam-diggers)
may be worn on specified occasions (see
9. Artificial appearances resulting from the use
of cosmetics, hair-dyes, etc., are out of place
and are not permitted at SMC.
10. Jewelry, such as rings, necklaces, necklace
watches, lockets, earrings, pendants, brace-
lets, and anklets, is not to be worn while at-
1. All formals must have sleeves. A cap sleeve
or a ribbon or net drape is not sl sleeve.
2. All formals must be long enough to cover
the knees in any standing or sitting position,
regardless of the number of crenolins worn.
3. If a stole is worn, it must be attached to the
dress so as to make it a part of the garment.
A net or lace stole must be lined.
4. A dress that dips in the back must come
up to within 6" of the neckline. A round
neck dress that exposes too much, of the back
must be worn with a stole or a jacket.
NOTE: All formals will be checked before the
first formal occasion.
YOU AND YOUR STUDIES
It is a satisfying feeling to believe that someone
understands you. Advisers are friendly people who
enjoy helping you understand yourself or aiding
you in meeting your problems. The services of a
technically trained and well-qualified professional
counselor are available to those of you who may
desire vocational or other guidance. Your coun-
selor will also be able to interpret test results
concerning your vocational or scholastic aptitudes.
As a freshman, you will participate in the
general testing program, which includes measures
of scholastic aptitude, reading proficiency, social
adjustment, and vocational proficiency. The current
college bulletin carries information on this testing
and counseling service.
Of recent years much importance has been
attached to the book collection as the heart and
center of learning on a college campus. SMC has
the beautiful A. G. Daniells Memorial Library.
The building is modern, is comfortably furnished,
and is well equipped. You are encouraged to take
advantage of these splendid library privileges. Here
are the finest opportunities for personal develop-
ment in preparing class assignments and research
work and for recreational reading. The library is
a real "service" department, and the library staff
serves the entire student body and staff personally
In order that you may be protected in your study
rights, lounging or visiting is out of order here.
Special friends will not sit together or use the
library for a meeting place. The library is a place
of business, not a social center.
The policy regarding class attendance is that no
absences shall occur except for illness, emergency,
or authorized school trips. Such absences are
recognized for the purpose of making up work;
however, requests to do so must be presented to
the academic dean on the form provided within
48 hours after the absence occurs and must be made
up within a week.
Teachers report to the dean's office when a stu-
dent's absences in any one class number the same
as the class appointments for one week. When the
absences equal the appointments for two weeks,
the teacher will consult with the academic dean as
to the student's continuance in the particular class.
Cases of such students may be reviewed by the
Academic policies Committee.
The usual regulation about double absences im-
mediately preceding or following vacation periods
and picnic days is also part of the absence policy
at SMC. Leaving class without permission counts
as an absence. Repeated tardinesses may also be
considered as absences.
Textbooks, workbooks, notebooks, and other
auxiliary learning materials are available at the
College Book Store.
YOUR STUDY HABITS
A regular routine of study produces maximum
results. The residence dean has daily program
cards available on which you can outline your
daily schedule, marking your appointments and in-
dicating times for study. "Plan your work and
work your plan" will aid you greatly in your drive
for success in academic matters.
Here are some suggestions on how to study:
1. Plan your work.
2. Have a goal for each study appointment.
3. Keep in good health by regularity in eating,
sleeping, and exercising.
4. Have a definite place and time for study on
5. Start studying immediately when you sit down
at your desk; avoid daydreaming!
6. Learn to read properly by looking for main
thoughts and by increasing your vocabulary.
7. Learn to remember by basing your memory
8. Take notes — legible, complete, and organized
— on each subject.
9. Prepare for examinations by daily study with
short frequent reviews.
YOU AND YOUR WORK
YOUR OCCUPATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Southern Missionary College cordially welcomes
you to its industrial program. This work program
has been provided to help defray your school ex-
penses and to give you practical training, which
in many respects is of as much benefit as the
The work program actually enables students to
"earn as they learn." A certain amount of work
is necessary for the operation of the college. In-
stead of hiring a large number of non-student, full-
time workers, much of the work has been reserved
for students. In addition to the general work
program at the college, many industries have been
established to provide work for students.
The optimum work-study program is about 20
hours of work and 16 hours of classes per week.
You are urged to spend a minimum of six hours
per week in physical labor. Many students work
more than the minimum in accordance with the
financial plan under which they are registered.
If you reside in the community, you will be
furnished such work as the college may be able
YOUR WORK RESPONSIBILITY
As a student, you should recognize that work
assignments are as important as class assignments
and that they constitute an essential part of the
financial plan under which you are enrolled. In
case of sickness or unavoidable absence you should
contact your work superintendent and help make
proper arrangements for a substitute worker and /or
for makeup work later. Work absences must be
held to an absolute minimum and allowed only
when definite arrangements have been agreed upon
in advance with the supervisor. In case of illness,
you should report to the health service at once for
treatment so that proper records can be made of
Every effort will be made to assign you to an
industry or a service department where you will be
satisfied and able to produce a service worthy of
your remuneration, but the college cannot assign
you where work is not available, nor can it always
shift you from one assignment to another upon
request. Ordinarily you will be assigned to a
particular department, and you will be expected to
remain there for the school year.
Two weeks' notice is required if you wish to
terminate your regular, scheduled work program
or to transfer to another department.
YOU AND YOUR RECREATION
Christian education is the harmonious develop-
ment of the physical, mental, and moral powers.
A sound physical constitution and vigorous health
are impossible without relaxation and bodily exer-
cise. Upon becoming a student at SMC, you should
arrange your personal program so that you will get
fresh air and exercise which are conducive to a
strong active mind and a noble character.
SMC, through its allied industries, provides an
abundance of opportunities for student exercise.
You will find physical labor a means of refreshment
for mind and body. To you who work, useful
physical labor provides a source of income and in-
vigorating exercise, develops a spirit of self-
reliance, and encourages habits of industry.
In addition to having abundant opportunities
for physical labor, the campus is situated to provide
adequate recreational facilities. Hiking oppor-
tunities are unexcelled, with rugged terrain and
mountain trails of scenic beauty on every hand.
The auditorium provides an area under roof for
skating and marching. There are courts for basket-
ball, volleyball, and tennis. The outdoor athletic
field is properly equipped and lighted for night
soft ball and other open field games. Intramural
sports are planned for the appropriate season.
All organized play is under the general super-
vision of the director of physical education, assisted
by the student and faculty committees on Health
(a) Staff members and students of Southern
Missionary College and Collegedale Acad-
emy are eligible to use the recreational
facilities of the field and gymnasium.
(b) Facilities may be used daily until 6:20
p.m. All activities will cease from two
hours before sunset on Friday until Sunday
morning with the exception of school-
planned Saturday evening functions.
(c) Students enrolled in physical education
classes, as posted, have prior use of fa-
(d) Student groups desiring use of facilities
must secure permission from the director
of physical education at least 24 hours in
advance of expected use.
(e) Only authorized and planned activities will
be scheduled during the study period hours.
(f) Soft rubber-soled shoes are to be used ex-
clusively on surfaced courts to prevent ac-
cidents and to protect playing surfaces.
(g) Individuals checking out play equipment
remain personally responsible for its care
(h) Sidewalks to and from courts and gym-
nasium are to be used to avoid tracking
of dirt onto surfaced play areas.
(i) Traffic across shufneboard court is pro-
hibited to protect painted surface.
( j ) Women may wear either regular street wear
apparel or approved gym wear consisting of
loose fitting pedal pushers ( White Stag
black clam diggers ) with appropriate
blouse. A wrap-around skirt is to be worn
to and from the courts or gymnasium.
(k) Men may wear regular slacks or the college
approved gym wear consisting of "duck
deckers" with appropriate shirt.
(1) See your respective dormitory dean or the
director of physical education for full par-
ticulars. College approved gym wear is
available at the Southern Mercantile.
(m) All participants are expected to conduct
themselves in harmony with college stand-
ards. Rules of propriety and sportsmanship
are to be observed at all times.
(n) Unless co-recreational activities are in prog-
ress as planned school functions, there
shall be no spectators loitering in the rec-
(o>) Willful misuse of equipment and facilities
will result in appropriate discipline. Dam-
age sustained will call for complete com-
pensation for replacement or repair, which-
ever is necessary.
On the SMC campus wholesome and inspiring
music may be a source and influence of great
benefit; cheap and sensual music has the power to
debase and to induce harm. At SMC every effort
is exerted to encourage a taste for the finest and
highest forms of music. The musical programs
contribute to the development of an appreciation
for the best secular and sacred compositions of the
past and present.
Students who insist on playing cheap music
will be disciplined.
As a student at SMC, you will have access to a
large variety of books embracing the finest literary
productions of all time. Here you will have op-
portunity to store your mind with gems of truth
and beauty. In college you can build reading habits
that will determine your choice of literature in
later life. As an educated person, you will want to
acquaint yourself with the best as tested by literary
standards; as a Christian, you will reject reading
matter which may be detrimental to your personal
The senior class alone is allowed an all-day
picnic in the spring.
The annual college class picnics are all conducted
on the same day.
The Ushers' Club is permitted a half-day picnic
in the spring on a Sunday.
All persons attending picnics are required to be
back and checked in on the campus by 9:00 p.m.
Mixed swimming is not permitted on school-
sponsored outings and picnics.
A small group that may want to have a picnic
on a week day or on a Sabbath must have a faculty
chaperone or an approved adult chaperone, even
though the group may be Upper Collegians.
All cars used for transportation on school
picnics, etc., must be covered with public liability,
property damage, and medical payment insurance.
YOU AND YOUR ACTIVITIES
The opportunities for student participation in
extra-class activities are unusually rich and varied
at Southern Missionary College. The college fosters
activity which stimulates student participation as
a means of developing leadership and experience in
group cooperation and achievement. On the prin-
ciple that students should learn by doing, these
activities prepare the student to render a definite
and effective service to God and society. This
extra-class activity program is an integral, in-
dispensable phase of student life and offers a means
of self-development of personal initiative, perse-
verance, and group leadership.
THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION
In addition to the activities organized by the
Missionary Volunteer Society of the Collegedale
church, the Student Association is the over-all or-
ganization by which every student may participate
in the extra-class activities of the college. The
officers of the Student Association and the members
of the Student Senate, which serves as the govern-
ing body of the Association, are elected annually
by popular vote of the members of the Association,
or of one of its constituencies.
Much of the work done in the over-all student
organization is done by the standing student com-
mittees appointed by the Student Senate. These
formulate recommendations, either to faculty com-
mittees, to the Student Association, and/or to the
Student Senate. The administrative officers of the
Student Senate meet functionally with the
president, the dean, the dean of student affairs,
and the business manager of the college.
The Student Senate sessions are generally open
to any student; the visiting student may take part
in the discussions. In all-college forums in the
chapel, by referendum among all students, and by
discussions in committees, forums, and classes,
student opinion is informed and may formulate
recommendations. To a large degree, specific areas
of student life and activity are under the full
administration of the Student Senate or its com-
Among the functions and activities of the Student
Association and its committees are formulation of
policies governing student office holding, chartering
of clubs; planning for and administering the an-
nual College Days; publication of the four student
periodicals: the annual Southern Memories, the
periodical Southern Accent, the semi-weekly Cam-
pus Accent; the yearly Joker; participation in the
formulation of policies in joint meetings with a
number of faculty committees; planning and giving
student broadcasts; promotion of special projects
in regard to better English, weekly news com-
mentaries, ushering service at all public functions,
fund-raising campaigns for improvements, and
A detailed handbook of student campus activi-
ties entitled, The Student Association of Southern
Missionary College, sets forth the duties and pro-
cedures of the Student Association and its com-
ponent elements, the clubs, forums, councils, and
committees under its jurisdiction.
The campus organizations are so varied that the
special interest of every student is almost certain
to be served. These include the following:
The Musical Organizations: The Southern Mis-
sionary College Choir, the Collegiate Chorale, the
Men's Chorus, the College Band, quartets, trios,
and other instrumental and vocal ensembles.
The Professional Clubs: The Future Business
Leaders of America, the Future Nurses Club, the
Communications Arts Club, the Home Economics
Club, the International Relations Club, the Secre-
tarial Club, Biology Club, Chemistry Club, Physics
Club, Teachers of Tomorrow Club, Industrial Arts
The Special Interest Clubs: The Stamp Club, the
Radio Club, the Ushers' Club, the Nature Club,
the Parliamentarian Club, etc.
The Forums: The Women's Forum, the Men's
Forum, the Married Couples' Forum.
The Church-Related Groups: Christ's Foreign Le-
gion, the Ministerial Seminar, the Future Ministers
Club, and the American Temperance Society's
The Missionary Volunteer Society of the local
church is the largest student organization, operating
a number of bands and other units serving special
Every student is encouraged to participate in
these organizations to the extent that his work
and study program will allow. As a means of
protection against an excessive load, the student's
office holding is regulated by the academic dean
and the Student Association.
FOR EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
In order that a large number may have an oppor-
tunity to develop leadership, a division of extra-
curricular activities is encouraged by the use of

A student is limited to 21 points a semester for
extracurricular activities. A senior may not increase
his load beyond 18 points for the second semester.
However, a senior carrying 21 points would not be
required to resign an office in the second semester.
Article 2, section (b) of the By-Laws of the
Student Association states:
A. Twenty-one points will be the maximum
any student can hold.
B. A student whose grade point average is
below 1.2 may hold up to and including 6
points. A student whose grade point average
is 1.2 overall, or 1.4 for the previous se-
mester, can hold up to and including 12
C. A student whose grade point average is 1.4
overall, or 1.6 for the previous semester, can
hold up to 21 points.
D. The Student Senate, in co-operation with
the President's Council, shall determine the
number of points to be carried by each office.
AT YOUR SERVICE
Collegedale has a post office which serves the
college and community. Besides the usual han-
dling of mail, it is authorized to issue money orders
and postal notes. Mail is picked up from and
delivered to each of the residence halls twice
Your mail should be addressed to Talge Hall
or Jones Hall for men, and Women's Residence
Hall for women.
Trunks and packages which cannot be handled
by parcel post are delivered by railway express.
The Student Bank for safe keeping of students'
funds is in Lynn Wood Hall.
LOST AND FOUND
The lost and found department is in the service
department in Lynn Wood Hall.
The cafeteria is one of the most congenial places
on the campus. There students meet and exchange
ideas, news, and pleasantries.
Proper nourishment is vital to physical and
mental health. Balanced vegetarian meals are
served in the college cafeteria, and it is usually
a good practice for you to eat three meals a day.
May we remind you that the dining hall is
more than just a filling station. Each person at the
table should contribute to the conversation at meals.
It is a demonstration of good breeding to dress
appropriately in the dining hall and to help
maintain a cultural atmosphere.
Laundry is collected once a week at each resi-
dence hall or may be taken to the laundry per-
sonally and picked up at a designated time.
To safeguard your property there are two re-
quirements: (1) Each article should be marked
with a name tape which may be purchased at the
laundry. The laundry assumes no responsibility
for clothing which is not marked with name tapes.
If the student prefers to furnish the tags, the
laundry will sew them on at the student's expense.
(2) A laundry slip should accompany each bundle.
The laundry also handles dry cleaning and press-
ing. Minor mending and patching is done free;
a small charge is made for other repair work.
The College Plaza is a convenient shopping
center for general merchandise, school supplies,
books, etc. It also houses the fountain where you
may obtain a snack in case you miss a meal. Other
facilities, such as a barber shop, and beauty shop,
Telephone booths are installed in both residence
halls and in the College Plaza. These phones are
available to students. Other office, business, and
residence phones are private installations. Long
distance calls may be made by paying cash or by
reversing the charges. Social calls are not to be
made during study period, and no calls should be
made after 10:00 p.m.
CONCLUSION: This is the end of the pamphlet,
but it may be the beginning of an inspiring rela-
tionship between "SMC and You."
You are invited to approach SMC with the
attitude expressed by Thurstone, the entertainer.
Before every performance it is said of him that he
stood in the wings off the platform and said to
himself, "I love this audience. I am going to
give them my very best, and they are going to
respond beautifully." It made for success with
Thurstone; it will do likey/ise for you.
