Courses of Study. 



In order to meet the wants of a larger class of Students, six regular 
courses of study are })rovided, namely: The Normal English, Belles 
Leltres, Science and Literature, Classical, Art, and Music. Students may 
ado[)t any of these courses exclusively, or may select such studies from 
them as they desire, subject to the ai)proval of the Faculty. 

The Normal English is designed to meet the increasing demand for 
teachers in our Common Schools, and is heartily commended to vounir 
ladies and gentlemen who desire thorough instruction and drill in the Eng- 
lish branches. To those who complete this course a I)i})loma, expressing 
the scholarshi}) attained, will he given. 

The Belles Lettres Course is si)ecially arranged to .iccommodate young 
ladies who may wish to omit the Higher Mathematics beyond Elementary 
Algebra and (Jeometry. It thus allbrds op[)()rtunity to connect studies in 
Music and Art with a well selected course in Literature and Science. 

Tiie Course in Science and Literature is intended to give wider culture 
and more thorough mental discipline. It differs from the ('lassical Course 
mainly in that it omits the (xreek Language entirely, and makes Latin elec- 
tive with (ierman or French during the first two years. Before entering 
upon this course, the Student nuist be thoroughly ac(piainted with the Com- 
mon English branches. 

The Classical ('ourse is much more extensive than is ordinarilv pursued 
at Seminaries. It will compare favorably with the Curriculum adopted by 
our best institutions of learning. We offer it with entire coniidence to 
young men who are preparing for ])r()fessi()nal life, and also to voun**- 
ladies who as})ire to superior intellectual culture. The preparation for 
this {'ourst' is a tliorough knowledge of the studies embraced in the Pre- 
j)aratory Course. 

Young men (Usiring to enter the lower or higher classes in Colle^J-e are 
allowed to take such studies as they need for that i)urpose.

WILLI AMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



General Information. 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY 

Is an institution of high grade, with ample facilities for 
giving young ladies and gentlemen a superior education. 
It is oi-ganized ui)on the plans which have been approved 
l)y long experience, and adopted l)y the best schools in this 
country, embracing all modern appliances in means and 
methods of instruction. It was founded in 1848, and is reg- 
ularlv chartered bv the Legislature of the State of Pennsyl- 
vania, and authorized to confer degrees upon those who 
complete the i)rescribed courses of study. 

The Seminary is under the patronage of the Central Penn- 
sylvania Conference, being owned and practically managed 
bv the Preachers' Aid Societv. As this investment was rather 
to ])romote the important work of Iliglier Christian Educa- 
tion than to make money, the ])aramount purpose is to combine 
tliorough instruction and careful moral training with the com- 
forts of a good home, at the lowest possil>le rates. 

L()(L\TI()X. 

Williams])()rt is one of the most beautiful and healthy places 
in the State. It has ncn'cr been sul)ject to epidemics of any 
kind. Manv cominii' to the school in poor health have I'C- 
tui'neil fullv restored. Th(; citv is situabMl on the West liranch 
of the Sus([uehanna River, has a population of twenty thousand, 
is widely known for its intelligcaice, its entei'prise, tlie taste 
displayed in the character of its ])ubli(* buildings and private 
i-esidences. and the moral a|)plia]ices with which it is furnished,

lectual as well as aesthetic and moral, ai*e i>:enerallv limited, 
rai'ely I'earhing l)eyond the institution itself, arid Innice student

larger place with wider opportunities affords. Twenty-seven 
churches, an active temperance organization, and a branch of 
the Y. M. C. A., embracing many of the most earnest Chris- 
tians in the community, with a large library free to all, and 
accessible at all times, indicate some of the religious influ- 
ences brought to bear upon the young in Williamsport. 

BUILDINGS. 

The buildings occupy an eminence overlooking the city, 
and are surrounded by beautiful shade trees, while the grounds 
contain five acres, aftbrding ample room for exercise and play. 
They are brick, heated by furnaces in the cellar, and supplied 
throughout with pure mountain water. 

The ladies' department is furnished with bath-room and all 
modern appliances for comfort, and in the entire arrangement 
of the buildings great care has been taken for the conveni- 
ence and health of the occupants. 

The ladies' apartments are entirely separate from the others, 
and there is no association of the sexes hut in the presence 
of their instructors. The happy influence, inutually exerted, 
in their slight association in the recitation ro(un, at the table, 
and in the public exercises of the chapel, is to be seen in the 
cultivation of a cheerful and animated disposition, in the 
formation of good habits and manners, in ardent devotion to 
studv,and in the attainment of high moral character. These, 
with manv other valuabh^ results, have establisluMl the f^ict 

ft.' 

that the best plan for a school is, according to the evident de- 
si<m of Providence in the constitution of society, on the l)asis 
of a well regulated Christian family. The members of the

Matron liavo immodiato cliar<>-o. The (lepartiiient commends 
itself by cleanliness, abundance of supply, excellence of 
({uality, good cooking, and adaptation to health. 

DISCIPLINE. 

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



APPARATUS. 

The SeminaiT is furnished with a collection of apparatus, 
togetlier with full sets of (Tloi)es, Maps and Charts, a Cabinet 
of Minerals, and a lai-ge supply of Chemical and Laboratory 
Utensils, thus affording lacility for illustration and experiment. 

MERIT AND DEMERIT. 

A daily record is ke])t of all the exercises of the School, 
from which record the Students will be graded. A record of 
demerits is also k(^pt. Tardiness, unexcused absences from 
r(M|uir(Ml (^\er(*ises. and all disorderly conduct, will sul)j'ect the 
Student to dcnnerit marks. Ten such marks i)ring a private 
reproof before the Faculty; twenty a ])ublic repi'imand befbi'e

Sessional re])orts are sent to })arents.

gentlemen and ladies, separately, on Thursday evenings. At- 
tendance upon these social services is optional with the 
Students. 

LITERARY EXERCISES. 

Exercises in Spelling, Etymology, Reading, Declamation 
and Original Composition are required of all the Students 
throughout the year. In addition to these, public exercises 
are held in the Seminary chapel every Friday evening, at 
which the more advanced Students read essays or deliver 
original speeches, interspersed with vocal or instrumental 
music, furnished by the Music Department. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are three flourishing literary societies connected with 
the Seminary: the Belles Lettres, the Gamma Epsilon, and 
the Tripartite Union. The first two are in the gentlemen's, 
and the last in the ladies' department. Each has a well fur- 
nished hall and a judiciously selected library, aggregating 
more than two thousand volumes. Each prepai'cs and reads 
a paper in the chaj)el once in thri^c^ weeks, in connection with 
other literary exercises, thus furnishing inspiration to intel- 
lectual culture, as well as entertainment for the Students and 
the public. 

INSTRUCTION. 

Our methods are modern, and adapted to the need of tlie 
Students. No j)ains are s])ared to give thorough, practical 
and scholarly traininu" in all the d(M)artm(Mits by teachers of 
superioi' attainments and (\x])eri(Mice. Besides instruction in 
connection with the text book, IcH'tures illustrated by expiM'i- 
ments are given IVom tinn^ to tinje. 

OUTFIT. • 

Every Student should be supplied with wai'm and durable 
clothing, heavy boots and shoes, an umbrella, and a pair of 
slipj)ers to Ix^ worn in the room. All articles should be plainly 
marked with the full name of the owner. We suggest that

oi)tionaL 

A WORD TO PARENTS. 

1. J|@^Try to have your children here on the first day 
of the term, but not before, as we will not be ready to receive 
them. The classes are formed on the second day, and it will 
be better for all concerned that the Student start regiilarly 
with his class. 

2. If possible, do not call them away during the session. 
Al)sence, if only for a few days, disarranges the class, and is gen- 
erally the beginning of irregularity on the part of the scholar. 

3. Do not allow your children to leave the School before 
the examinations, unless it cannot be avoided. Serious incon- 
venience, to all concerned, often arises from a neglect of this 
caution. 

4. Supply them very 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 distrii)ute his funds. In this way a more judicious use of 
your money will l)e made, and your child will be kept from 
many temptations. 

B®" Students not boarding in the Institution must observe 
the following i-ules: 

1. Attend daily ])rayers. 

2. Must attend all the Seminary exercises punctually. 

3. Must si)end the intervals between recitations in the 
Study Hall. 

4. Must account for all absence by written excuse without 
d(*lay, tiuKi and numlx^r of recitations being specified. 

5. Must not visit the reoms of boarders without per- 
mission. 

MEANS OF ACCESS. 

Th(* Philadelphia and Erie, the Northern Central and the 
IMiiladeI])hia and Reading Railroads pass through the city, so 
that Williams])ort is readily accessible from all (juarters. 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



35 



J|@^By special arrangements all our Students procure 
tickets at excursion rates over the Pennsylvania, the Phila- 
delphia and Erie, the Northern Central and the Philadelphia 
and Reading Railroads and their Branches, both going to and 
returning from their homes, thus materially reducing the 
expenses of travel. We call the special attention of parents 
and those seeking education to this fact, and at the same time 
gratefully recognize the liberality of these railroad companies 
in dealing with our Institution. 



GRADUATES AND FORMER STUDENTS. 

It may be safely estimated that from eight to ten thousand 
persons have received academic instruction, covering from 
one to three years, in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, while 
two hundred and thirty-four have completed the prescribed cur- 
riculum, graduating with the degrees the Institution confers. 
We desire to bring all these into active sympathy and co- 
operation with their Alma Maier, and hence we ask all 
persons to whom this notice may come, who have been Stu- 
dents here, to send us their address, with any information 
concerning their personal history that may l)e of general in- 
terest, as we wish to compile a complete catalogue of all the 
Students now living. 

There is a general meeting of the Alumni every yeai*, the 
day l)efore Commencement. We extend a most cordial invi- 
tation to all old Students to attend the meeting this vear, 
which will be held June 20, afternoon and evening. If vou 

/ «... J •/ 

cannot come, let us hear from you by letter. 

And, now, may I not ask you to aid in enlarging the sphere 
and increasing the j)o\ver of our Ahna Mater f You can do 
much in inanv wavs, but vou can at least direct those looking 
for a good Boarding School to ours, or send me their address 
on a postal card. Carry the Seminary in your heart. She is 
doing a worthy work, and earnestly asks her sons and daugh- 
ters to help her.

Opinions of Patrons and Friends. 



That the public may know tlic estimate placed upon the 
Seminary by those who are practically acquainted with its 
management and work, we append some testimonials i-eceived 
rel*ently from patrons and friends: 

Baltimore, Md., May 5, 1878. 

Rev. E. J. (iKAY, 

Deak Sir : It affords mo great pleasure to state that I consider your school, in 
every respect, worthy of confidence, having- had a ward under your instruction 
the past year. I am much pleased with liis progress, and had i other wards or 
children to educate, would gladly avail myself of the facilities of Dickinson Semi- 
nary. B. F. Parlett, Merchant, 

92 Lombard street. 

Detroit, Mich,, May 6, 1878. 
1 visited Dickinson Seminary at Williamsport, Pa., in September, 18T7, in search 
of an institution of learning of a high grade, combining home comforts, healthful- 
ness, excellent discipline and superior facilities for mental and moral culture, for 
my son, aged 18 years. After two days' examination of the city and the Seminary, 
])ecoming ac(iuainted with its Faculty, courses of study, and the morale of Its stu- 
dents, the beauty and healthfulness of its locality, I found it all I desired. The 
impi'oved health and progress in studies of my son fully justify my selection, I 
most cheerfully recommend the Institution to parents desiring the above qualifi- 
cations, William Pheli's, Wliolesale Grocer, 

91 Washington Av. 

Hanover, Pa. 

Having been a patron of your Institution for the past three years, I have no 
hesllancy In saying that your fa(;llities for the mental and moral training of young 
[X'ople are most excellent— in my opinion, cannot be excelled by any otlier institu- 
tion of the kind in the State, For discipline I consider it especially good, and 
would advise any one wishing to advance the education of their children to send 
them. Yours, &c., I). 1). Bixler, 

Dealer in Stoves, Tinware, Japanned Ware, &c., &c.

cate. As a school it Is "beautiful tor situation," healthful in location, excellent 
in morals and thorough In mental drill. My pcM'sonal intercourse with tlie P'aculty 
has been most i)leasant, and 1 regard them as worthy the confidence and pat- 
ronage of both tlie Conference and community. I am especially pleased with the

FHOSTiu:R(i, Mn., May 7, 187s. 
I take pleasure in bearing lestimony to tlie worth and <Mticlency of Dickinson 
Seniinai'v as an institution of learning. In the culture of morals and n'Uglous 
ti-aining'l l)elleve it superior to any one I know, whlhUt Is fully th<' ecpial of otliers 
in what II pi'oniises to do. Th«' best evidence of my a])])reciation of It Is that I 
send my ciiildren to it and ])ass by others mor(^ conveniently located. I (iannot

My son has been a pupil at the Seminary for one y(Mir. I take pleasure In say- 
ing that the Impression made on my inltul Is that tln^ Seminary w^as never In'a 
more nourishing condition, and from his statements I gather tiiat tlie sanitary 
condition of tlie sch<K)l Is excellent. The facilities for mental and moral Instruc-

Clearfield, Pa., Mays, ls78. 

I have been acquainted with the institution over IG years, having been a stu- 
dent there for more than three years. 

I regard it as one of the best institutions in the country for those who have 
not the time or means to complete a full course in the higher colleges, but as far 
as Its course goes, it compares favorably even with these. 

It combines the most approved methods of study and drill with home com- 
forts and a healthful and desirable location. I am glad to say that very great 
improvements have been Introduced by President Gray, and the Institution is 
now on a good basis, with fair prospects of future prosperity. 

Tnos. H. Murray, Lawyer. 

Waverly, Md., May, 1878. 
I know of no school that I could recommend more cheerfully to those having 
children to educate than Dickinson Seminary, now under the control of Kev. Ed- 
ward J. Gray, w^hom 1 consider eminently qualified to fill such an Important posi- 
tion. Having had one son and daughter educated in this institution, and one s6n 
there at the present time, I am free to say that the advantages of home comforts, 
healthfulness, discipline and facilities for mental and moral culture offered by 
Dickinson Seminary, are, in my opinion, all that those seeking higher education, or 
parents looking for a school for their children, could ask or desire. 

K. G. Kankin, M. I). 

PiiiLiPSBURG, Pa., May, 1878. 
I take great pleasure In recommending Williamsport Dickinson Seminary to 
parents and guardians as an institution where their children or wards will receive 
the most careful educational training and at the same time all the comforts of 
their own home. My knowledge is obtained by the attendance of my children at 
your Institution. J. F. Steiner. 

Manufacturer and Dealer in Lumber, &c. 

PniLADELPiifA, May, 1878. 
An acquaintance with this school for many years, together with a frequent 
attendance upon its annual examinations and commencement exercises, and a 
personal acquaintance with a very large number of its ex-students in practical 
life, have all Impressed me most favorably. It imparts fine culture with liberal 
and thorough scholarship. Sam'l Barnes, 847 N. Eleventh street. 

Pastor Twelfth Street M. E. Church. 

Hu(;uEsviLLE, May 6, 1878. 
Having for the last three years been a patron of Dickinson Seminary, I can 
truly say that for healthfulness, home comforts and facilities for mental and 
moral culture, it is not excelled by any school in the State.

For several years I have been making Intiulries about different schools l\{\\- 
ing had very favorable reports of Dickinson Seminary, and some ac(pialritance with 
the President, and confidence in his ability and Christian character, I felt my 
daughter would be safe under his care. She has been there now more than four 
months, perfectly well and happy. Having just returned from a visit there, I can 
unhesitatingly commend the Seminary to any one wishing to send sons or daugh- 
ters from home. I was much pleased with all the arrangements, 

Mrs. Kate R. Bark. 

Williamsport, May 15, isTs. 
Having been a patron of the Seminary for several years past, under your man- 
ag(Mnent, It affords m<' pleasure to say a few words of commendation of tlie Insti- 
tution. I f<'el justified In saying that students have every opportunity to obtain 
a liberal education. Parents and others may also rest assured that careful atten- 
tion Is given to mental and moral training. 

Truly yours, A. rl. Dietkick, City Recorder. 

Hanover, Pa., May ♦;, ls7s. 
Having had an Intimate knowledge of the workings of Dickinson Seminary 
for more than thre(^ years, my son and daughter having been students there, I 
can sincerely recommend It for the Intellectual and moral advantages It .itTords. 
The location is healthful ; the discipline commendable. 

Cuas. Younu, Lumber Merchant.
