It has ne\er been suliject to epidemics of any kind. Man^' coming to the 
School sickly, have returned fully restored. The location is central and 
accessible from all quarters. The Railroads, now coni])leted, bring us within 
a few hours ride of KImira, Lockhiiven, Erie, iJanville, Pottsville. Ilarrisburp', 
llollidaysburg, Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York. So more desirable 
position for a Seminar}' of Learning can be fouml. 

O R G A N I Z A T TON. 

Tlie School is organized on the most approved plan of the best Institutions 
of New ^'ork and \(>w England, it embraces lioth sexes, under the same 
government and instruction. The President and the other members of the 
Eaculty occupy npartnu-uts in the l)uilding, eat at the same table, and have a 
constant oversight of all the Students. 

The Ladies" private and jiuidic rooms are entirely S(^i)arate from tlie others, 
and tlure i.s no association of ilie sexes but in the presence of their instr;:ctors.

ACCOMMODATIONS 



The buildings will accommodate (two in a room) about two hundred 
students. They are of brick, heated by furnaces in the cellar, and supplied 
with water. The rooms are large and well ventilated. In the entire 
arrangement of the buildings great care has been had for the comfort and 
health of the occupants. The grounds contain about six acres, affording 
sufficient room for exercise and play. 

BOARDINa, ETC. 

All students from a distance are required to board in the Seminary. By 
the following list of prices it will be seen that our total charges are quite as low 
as those of any Institution of like grade in this State ; not excepting those 
schools in which cheap scholarships have been sold. We desire to bring down 
the cost of education to the lowest point possible, and thus afford to the masses 
sound, intellectual, and moral culture. Board, including washing (10 pieces, ) 
room and fuel, is $3.00 per week. 

CALENDAR AND EXPENSES. 

The Seminary Year is divided into three une(jual terms. Pu[)ils are received 
at any time. Deduction for absence is made on recommendation of the Faculty 
to the Treasurer. Bills payable in advance.

4. Minors must deposite with the President, all spending money, to be re- 
turned in such amounts as he may think best. 

5. Must agree to comply Avith all the Rules and Regulations of the School. 
N. B.— -Each Student will be considered a member of the Institution, until 

due notice shall have been given of intention to leave, and permission obtained 
of the President. 

ROOMS AND CLOTHING. 

The rooms are furnished Avith all heavy articles, but the Students must bring 
their own sheets (for double beds,) pillows, pillowcases, blankets, counter- 
panes and towels, and find their own brooms, mirrors, coal oil and lamps. 

Students should be supplied with warm, durable clothing, heavy Uoots and 
shoes, an umbrella, and a pair of slippers to be worn while in the building. 
All articles of clothing nhould he carefully marked with the full name. 

APPARATUS. 

The Seminary is furnished with a collection of Apparatus, together with full 
sets of Globes, Maps and Charts, and a Cabinet of Minerals, thus affording 
facility for illustration and experiment. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline is mild, but firm and impartial. While every encouragement 
will be given to the orderly and studious, and due allowance be made for youth- 
ful indiscretions, yet the lawless and refractory cannot long remain among us. 

RELIGIOUS SERVICES. 

Every Student is required to attend religious services at the opening and close 
of school, each day, as well as public worship morning and evening, every 
Sabbath, at such jdare as parents or guardians may designate. 

N. B. — Each student must be supplied with a Bible, to be read \cith out note or 
sectarian comment^ in the morning and evening services of the chapel. The 
whole school read in concert. 

I> I T E R A R Y SOCIETIES. 

Besides the regular weekly exercises in Composition and Declamation, there 
are four fiourishing Literary Societies in the Institution ; the '' Belles Lettres,'" 
"Gamma Epsilon," " Tripartite Union," and " Young American," each of 
which i)repares and reads to the school a paper once a month. About HOO 
volumes are in the Societies' Lil)raries. 

MERIT AND D E M E R I T . 

A strict weekly record is kept of all the exercises of the school, from which 
record the students will be graded. 



24 



WILLIA^I SPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



A record of demerits is mIso kept. Tardiness, unexcused absences from re- 
quired exercises, and all disorderly conduct will subject the student to demerit 
marks. Three such marks may br!nf^ a private reproof before the Faculty ; 
six, a reproof before the Ladies or Gentlemen, as the case may be; nine, a 
public reprimand before the whole school ; and twelve may send the offender 
away. Sessional Reports are sent to parents when requested. 

A WORD TO PARENTS. 

1. Try to have your children here at the commencement of the term. The 
classes are then formed and it will be better for all concerned that the student 
start regularly with his class. 

2. If possible, do not call them away during the session. Absence, if only 
for a few days, disarranges the class, and is generally the beginning of irregu- 
larity on the part of the scholar. 

3. Do not allow your children to leave the school before the examinations, 
unL^ss it cannot be avoided. Serious inconvenience, to all concerned, often 
arises from a nesjlect of this caution. 

4. Supply them verij sparingly with spending money. Parents cannot be 
too cautious on this point. 

5. Select for your child one of the Instructors, as a Patron, to distribute 
his funds. In this way a more judicious use of your money will be made, and 
your child be kept from many temptations. 

N. B. — These t\vo last suofo-cstions are to be reojarded as established rules of 
the school. 

^^B^Students not boarding in the Institution, must observe the following 
additional rules : 

1. Attend Even inn- Prayers. 

2. Must attend all the Seminary Exercises punctually. 

^. Must spend the intervals between recitations in the Study Hall. 

4. Must account for all absence by written excuse without delay, time and 
number of recitations being specified. 

r>. ]\Iiist not visit the rooms of the boarders, without permission.
