illiamsport Dickinson offers college courses for young 
men and women. It provides facilities for both day and 
boarding students, offering terminal courses in the Junior College 
Division and a four-year program in the Liberal Arts College lead- 
ing to the Bachelor of Arts degree. 


It is located at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, "The Queen City 
of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River," on the famed Sus- 
quehanna Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, and Wash- 
ington, D. C. Williamsport is famed for its picturesque scenery, 
its beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its people. 
The Pennsylvania and Reading Railroads, with their fast trains, 
and the Lakes-to-Sea and the Greyhound Busses put it within two 
hours' reach of Harrisburg, four and a half hours of Philadelphia, 
and six hours of Pittsburgh and New York. Capital and TWA 
Airlines place the time at forty minutes to Harrisburg, an hour and 
ten minutes to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, two hours to New 
York, and about three hours to Boston. 


Williamsport Dickinson Seminary was founded in 1848 by a 
group of men of Williamsport under the leadership of Rev. Benja- 
min H. Crever, who, hearing that the old Williamsport Academy 
was about to be discontinued, proposed to accept the school and 
conduct it as a Methodist educational institution. Their offer was 
accepted and, completely reorganized, with a new president and 
faculty, it opened September, 1848, as Dickinson Seminary, under 
the patronage of the old Baltimore Conference. It was acquired 


in 1869 and is still owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of the 
Central Pennsylvania Conference of the Methodist Church, and is 
regularly chartered under the laws of the state of Pennsylvania. 
It is not a money-making institution. All of its earnings as well 
as the generous gifts of its friends have been spent for maintenance 
and improvements. During a large part of its history its curriculum 
covered the work now included in a high school course and at the 
same time included about two years of college work. By its charter 
it is empowered to grant degrees, which authority was for a time 
exercised. In 1912 it began to confine itself to the college pre- 
paratory field and continued in that field until 1929. From that 
date until June 1947 it operated as a junior college. The increased 
college attendance following the war, and trends in higher education 
in recent years clearly indicate a need for more four-year colleges. 
After giving the matter careful consideration, the Board of Direc- 
tors, at a special meeting January, 1947, authorized and set in 
motion plans to adopt a four-year college program. This catalogue, 
therefore, contains announcements of subjects for all four years of 
the liberal arts college, and in addition, certain terminal courses of 
the Junior College Division. The college preparatory work will 
be discontinued at the close of the school year 1947-1948. 

The campus is located near the center of the city on a slight 
eminence, which causes the school to be affectionately referred to as 
"The School Upon the Hilltop." Stately elms, maples, and trees 
of other varieties add beauty and dignity to the campus and form 
an attractive setting for the imposing buildings. To the south and 
across the Susquehanna, within twenty minutes' walk is the beauti- 
ful Bald Eagle Range of the Allegheny Mountains, affording a view 
of perennial charm. To the north are the Grampian Hills. In 
fact, Williamsport, "beautiful for location," is seldom surpassed or 
equaled in its wealth of beautiful scenery. 


It is the aim of Williamsport Dickinson to provide to qualified 
students education of such a nature as to supply the background for 
a more intelligent understanding and appreciation of the economic, 
political, historical, social, scientific, esthetic and religious aspects of 


life. In addition to the broad, general education, courses prepara- 
tory to specialization in the professions of law, medicine, dentistry, 
engineering, etc., or courses preparatory to graduate work in some 
field of concentration are offered. Terminal education in the Junior 
College Division is available in Secretarial Science, Medical Secre- 
tarial, Laboratory Technician, and some Liberal Arts courses. 


OLD MAIN. The Main Building is an imposing structure of 
brick, occupying the central part of the campus. In this building 
are the administrative offices, class rooms, and dormitories. There 
are hardwood floors throughout. 

BRADLEY HALL. Bradley Hall was erected in 1895 of red 
brick and is modern in construction. The library and the dramatic 
studio occupy the first floors. Above are girls' dormitories. 

EVELAND HALL. Eveland Hall is also of red pressed brick, 
and is a modern fire-proof building. The basement houses the 
heating plant. A modern chemistry laboratory and class rooms 
occupy the first floor. The second and third floors contain dormi- 

THE GYMNASIUM. Williamsport Dickinson is fortunate in 
having a splendid modern gymnasium, dedicated November 8, 1924, 
which is a popular center of activities. The building is 110 feet 
by 88 feet, beautifully designed and of semi-fireproof construction. 

The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20 by 60 feet, 
equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant. The pool is con- 
structed of tile and is amply lighted, with windows of glass blocks, 
making a sunlit pool at nearly all hours of the day. 

There are also two bowling alleys of latest design, and separate 
rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. Provision 
for private dressing rooms and shower rooms for women is made. 

The gymnasium floor proper is 90 by 65 feet with a stage at the 
easterly end so that the main floor can readily be converted into an 


auditorium if need be, suitable for recitals and even more preten- 
tious productions. 

ATHLETIC FIELD. Built partially on the side of the old 
athletic field, the new field runs north and south, beginning directly 
behind the gymnasium and dining hall, and extending to the terrace 
just off Washington Boulevard on the north. Ample room is pro- 
vided for tennis courts and football field, with facilities for softball 
and other intramural sports. 

New bleachers have been erected which accommodate 1,000 
people. They have wooden seats on a steel and concrete founda- 
tion, with an attractive brick wall at the rear, surmounted with a 
wrought iron fence. Evergreens, rose of Sharon, and spiraea line 
the inside of the fence. 

CLARKE MEMORIAL. This new chapel and dining hall, made 
possible by the bequest of Miss Martha B. Clarke of the class of 
1862 as a memorial to her brothers and herself, is designed in the 
colonial style, and is of fireproof construction. The chapel proper, 
which has excellent acoustics, provides facilities for devotional 
services, assemblies, dramatic concerts and lectures. With the 
balcony, it is planned to seat six hundred people. 

The dining hall, on the first floor, is arranged with separate 
entrances and with coat rooms and wash rooms for men and women. 
It opens on a terrace overlooking the campus and athletic field. 
Effort has been made to produce a comfortable, home-like room. 
Either table service or cafeteria service is possible. 

The erection of this building fits into the plan of an attractive 
quadrangle. Other improvements extend the open campus to 
Washington Boulevard. 

FINE ARTS. The buildings on the extreme northern portion of 
the campus on Washington Boulevard, facing the campus, provide 
a modern home for the President, and a well-equipped Fine Arts 
Building for music and art. The Art Studio takes the full northern 
sweep on the second floor of the Fine Arts Building. Also on that 
floor are a number of private practice studios, and conference rooms 
for members of the faculty. On the main floor of the building 


there are three large music studios and several smaller rooms for 
private piano practice. The interior walls are finished in light 
buff, and the floors in oak. There are eighteen rooms in the new 
building which are devoted entirely to Fine Arts. 

MEMORIAL HALL. The latest building to be erected, Memorial 
Hall, was dedicated on November 1, 1947. It is a three-story build- 
ing and has floor space of 8000 square feet. It contains class 
rooms, departmental offices, and the biology and physics labora- 
tories. This building, erected through the cooperation of the college 
and the Federal Works Agency, is attractively faced with red brick. 

THE ANNEX. To the south of Bradley Hall another class room 
building has been erected by the Federal Works Agency. De- 
partmental offices are also located here. 


The library is playing an increasingly important part in any 
educational program today. The Dr. E. J. Gray Memorial Library, 
occupying the entire first floor of Bradley Hall, is commodious, 
well-lighted and arranged for research and reflective reading. 
There are now more than 13,000 volumes to which new volumes 
are added each year. A very excellent list of reference works has 
been provided and a group of books for general reading has been 
added in order to stimulate the interest of the students in books not 
directly related to their special interests. 

Currently the library has a subscription to one hundred and 
two periodicals, covering all subject fields offered by the college, 
and five newspapers, including one foreign language paper. Seven 
periodical indexing and bibliographical services are regularly 

A full-time, professionally trained librarian is in charge of the 
library and is assisted by an assistant librarian and additional 
student help as needed. This staff is available to help in locating 
desired material, in the preparation of bibliographies, or for other 
forms of reference service. 


In addition to the usual reading material, the library is building 
a collection of recordings for the use of various departments and of 
the student body. Included are not only musical records, but also 
a number of literary or historical records and albums. Special 
periods are set aside for those who are interested to listen to 
recorded programs in the library. 

The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the 
college campus, and is one of the finest Public Libraries in the state. 
Its books are carefully distributed over the several fields of Liter- 
ature, Religion, Economics, Sociology, Natural Sciences and other 
liberal arts subjects. The reading rooms are ample and its large 
collection of books is freely open to all students of the college. 


Audio-visual aids in instruction are relatively new, but the idea 
is growing more important. Progressive educational institutions 
are not ignoring the potentialities of visual and auditory methods, 
and with this in view, Williamsport Dickinson is promoting an 
active program to incorporate audio-visual devices for more pur- 
poseful and effective instruction. Special audio-visual equipment 
available includes a sound, 16 mm., moving-picture projector, one 
two-by-two slide projector, one combination two-by-two slide and 
35 mm. filmstrip projector, three combination radio and record 
machines, a wire recorder, and two public address systems. 

The library is building a collection of films, filmstrips, and 
records, which will be used in connection with classes, special 
groups on the campus, and for the pleasure and relaxation of 

A special room is equipped to carry on the audio-visual program 
and periods are designated for all groups and classes who desire 
to participate. 


G iris' Dormitory 



The college recognizes the need for giving the freshmen assist- 
ance in making desirable adjustments to the college situation. A 
program has been prepared for the orientation of freshmen. 

All freshmen are required to come to the college one week in 
advance of the upper-classmen. During this time various tests are 
given which will aid the college staff in advising the student in his 
choice of courses. During this period problems of freshmen 
adjustment are discussed and directions for study, the use of the 
library, and other instructional aids are given. Provision is also 
made for recreation and a wholesome social life. 


While Williamsport Dickinson is a church school, it is not 
sectarian. At least four religious denominations are represented 
on its Board of Directors. Every student is encouraged to be loyal 
to the church of his choice. 

A systematic study of the Bible is required of all students. 
Regular attendance at the college chapel services is required. 
Students attend the Sunday morning services at churches in the city. 

The John Wesley Club is composed of students preparing for 
the ministry or other forms of religious work. Through regular 
meetings and deputation teams they gain valuable training and 
experience in religious work. 


Williamsport Dickinson aims to develop in its students an easy 
familiarity with the best social forms and customs. Young men 
and women meet in the dining hall, at receptions and other social 
functions. These contacts, together with frequent talks by instruc- 
tors, do much to develop poise and social ease. Persons of promi- 


nence are brought to the school for talks and lectures, and excellent 
talent is provided by community organizations which bring the best 
artistic talent to the city. 


It is aimed to develop in each student a sense of loyalty and 
responsibility to good citizenship. To this end there is established 
a Student Government representing the entire student body with 
the purpose of promoting the general welfare of the college and to 
provide a more perfect understanding between students and admin- 

Certain phases of dormitory life are supervised and regulated 
by a student dormitory government. In this way students are pro- 
vided the experience of sharing the responsibilities which are the 
outgrowth of living closely with each other. The Dean of Women 
and the Dean of Men exercise an overall supervisory influence on 
dormitory life. 

It is understood that students entering Williamsport Dickinson 
do so with the intention of making an honest effort to do satisfac- 
tory work in every respect. Where a student is not able to con- 
form to the school program, the parents or guardians are asked to 
withdraw the student from the school. 


CAMPUS GROUPS. In addition to the John Wesley Club and 
the Student Government there are many and varied organizations 
on the campus which aim to provide students with an interesting 
and wholesome social life. These are organized and conducted by 
students in cooperation with the faculty. Some of these are as 
follows: The International Relations Club, which is the campus 
focus for discussion of world affairs ; The French Club, which sup- 
plements class work by aiding students in conversational French ; 
The Camera Club, which provides students opportunity for devel- 
oping a life-long hobby; The Dramatic Club, which affords oppor- 
tunity for those interested in acting and directing plays ; The 


College Band and Symphony Orchestra, which meet several times 
each week for practice and furnish the college with music for many 
entertainments, events and celebrations throughout the year. 

COLLEGE PUBLICATIONS. There are two college publica- 
tions: "The Lycoming Courier" is the official student paper, 
devoted to local interests of the student body, reporting current 
campus events; and "The Dart," college year book, published in 
June and presenting a record of student life during the current 
academic year. 

MUSIC. The Music Department offers several organizations for 
students interested in music. A College Choir, Men's Glee Club, 
and Women's Glee Club are open to all students desiring to join. 
The Lycoming Singers, a mixed octette, Women's Quartette, Men's 
Quartette, and an A Cappella Choir are formed of selected voices 
and represent the college at many events. An Orchestra, and 
String Ensemble give instrument players an opportunity to enjoy 
the fellowship of good music together. 

FRATERNITIES. Three fraternities on the campus provide a 
means of bringing to men students the advantages of a fraternal 
organization. The social life of the college is carefully planned by 
both administrative and student government to be helpful to the 
individual student in his social world. 


RECREATION. An expansive program of intramural athletics 
affords opportunity for every student not a member of a varsity 
team to participate in one or more sports. These are run in con- 
nection with the required physical education program. Basic 
instruction in game techniques is given in physical education class 
and the intramural program affords opportunity for individual and 
team competition. Some of these sports are tennis, swimming, 
basketball, handball, badminton, bowling, volleyball, softball, and 
table tennis for both women and men; rhythmical activities, field 
hockey and archery, for women; boxing, touch football, and water 
polo for men. 


In addition to the athletic recreation program, various organiza- 
tions on the campus, the lecture series, the Record Session, motion 
pictures, and numerous social affairs, offer programs of interest. 

STUDENT INSURANCE. By a special group plan, our students 
are able to secure accident insurance covering medical and hospital 
expenses for injuries received on the campus. The limit of cov- 
erage for women is $500.00 and for men $250.00. All students are 
advised to carry this protection. 

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION. A physical examination of all 
students is required. This examination is conducted by the stu- 
dent's own physician and a report made on a standard form sup- 
plied by the college. This report is presented to the Dean of 
Instruction on Registration Day. 

INFIRMARY SERVICE. The infirmary fee, covered by the 
over-all activities fee, includes the following medical service: The 
college nurse holds infirmary hours each day, except Sunday, that 
the college dormitories are open, and is also available for first aid 
treatment and will call to the attention of the college physician any 
case demanding special treatment. 

Such service, however, shall not be interpreted to include x-rays, 
surgery of more than minor nature, care of major accidents on or 
off campus, immunization for colds, examination for glasses, doctors' 
calls, cases of serious chronic disorder, or other extraordinary 

Each student is entitled to three days of infirmary service per 
school year, including routine nursing and ordinary medicines. 
There will be a charge of $2.00 per day for each additional day or 
fraction thereof beyond the alloted days. 

Special nursing service and special medicines and prescriptions 
will be at the expense of the student. Parents will be notified by 
the college when students are confined to the infirmary with serious 


Living quarters are provided on the campus for 109 women and 
155 men. Efforts are made each year to keep the dormitories in 


repair so that they constitute comfortable and attractive homes for 
the students concerned. 

Rooms at Williamsport Dickinson are furnished as follows: 
Desk, bureau, chair, single bed, mattress, and pillow are provided. 
Students must bring their own bed linen, blankets, and study lamps 
with them. 

The students will make arrangements for their own laundry ser- 
vice. A local laundry has a representative on campus for the con- 
venience of all boarding students. It is recommended that the 
student bring a minimum of six sheets (single bed), three pillow 
cases, and two double blankets. 


The discipline of the college is firm, reasonable, and sympa- 
thetic. All students are considered responsible citizens and mem- 
bers of a Christian community. Any student who is antagonistic 
to the spirit and general purpose, or who fails to abide by the 
regulations set up by the college, may be asked to withdraw from 
the college at any time during the school year. 


The college regulations, in addition to those published here, are 
furnished each student upon matriculation. Announcements dur- 
ing the year by college authorities may amend or supplement the 
catalogue regulations and are to be adhered to as such. 

Students from a distance are required to reside in the dormi- 
tories. Permission for any exception to this rule must be obtained 
from the administration. 

Money and valuables should be placed in the school safe; the 
college will not assume responsibility unless this is done. 

No intoxicants or drinking of intoxicants is permitted. 

Permission to maintain automobiles on the campus must be 
obtained from the administration. 

No firearms are permitted on the campus. 



Complete application forms for admission to Williamsport 
Dickinson may be obtained from the Director of Admissions. In- 
cluded with these are directions for making application. 

A registration fee of $10.00 is required with each application. 
This fee is refunded in case the application is rejected, and is 
returned to veterans of World War II entered under Public Law 
346 or 16 at the time of the second payment period. 

Applicants who are accepted will receive a statement evaluating 
their high school credits and granting proper classification. Those 
rejected will be notified. 


A candidate for admission must be of good moral character and 
show evidence of ability and preparation to pursue the program of 
his choice at Williamsport Dickinson. The usual evidence of 
preparation is a certificate showing satisfactory completion of 15 
units of high school work or its equivalent as follows: 

The Liberal Arts 

College English History Math. Science Elec. 

A.B. and B.S. Degrees 3(4yrs.) 1 1 Alg. 1 8 

1 Geom. 
The Junior College 

Liberal Arts 3 (4yrs.) 1 1 Alg. 1 8

Lab. Tech 3(4yrs.) 1 1 Alg. 1 8 

1 Geom. 

Sec. Science 3(4yrs.) 10 11 

Applicants ranking in the upper three-fifths of their high school 
class or presenting a certificate showing all grades of college cer- 
tificate value may be admitted without examination. 


Candidates for admission who do not meet the above require- 
ments for admission may be admitted by making a satisfactory score 
on an aptitude test. 


While the addition of the final two years of liberal arts work 
now make possible the awarding of a Bachelor of Arts Degree and 
Bachelor of Science Degree, students are still able to enroll at 
Williamsport Dickinson in the Junior College Division. 

Offerings in this Division are: Two-year terminal courses in 
Secretarial Science, Medical Secretarial, Art and Music; and a 
three-year terminal course in Laboratory Technology. Upon sat- 
isfactory completion of these courses a certificate is awarded at the 
graduation exercises. Also, students may register for liberal arts 
work for transfer to another institution for the purpose either of 
obtaining advanced credit on an undergraduate level, or for ful- 
filling certain undergraduate requirements for entrance to a pro- 
fessional field. 

Students desiring to enter the Junior College Division must 
make their plans known at the time application for admittance is 
made. While guidance will be available upon request for those 
who wish to transfer to other institutions, it will be the sole respon- 
sibility of the student to make certain that he meets the entrance 
requirements of that institution. 

During the past eighteen years students graduating in the 
Junior College have been accepted with full credit at the better 
colleges and universities throughout the United States. However, 
because of the crowded conditions in institutions of higher learn- 
ing, it is not possible for Williamsport Dickinson to assure those 
in the Junior College Division that they can be accepted by another 
institution at any stage of their undergraduate preparation. 


Prior to the student's entrance to a course of study, there is a 
personal interview between the Director of Admissions and the 
candidate for admission. These interviews are sufficient in length 


to obtain a picture of the student, his background, and plans for the 
future. On the basis of preparatory or high school records, apti- 
tude tests, and psychological examinations, an evaluation of the 
student can be formed. 

Additional information is added to this as the student progresses 
through his college life. Each student is assigned a faculty adviser 
who will assist him in his choice of courses of study. All this 
information aids the adviser to help the student choose the work 
best suited to his needs, ability, and plans for the future. In addi- 
tion, the Dean of Instruction holds personal counseling interviews 
upon request of the student or faculty adviser. 


Williamsport Dickinson is fully approved for the educational 
program for Veterans under Federal Public Laws 346 and 16. 


A student may be admitted to Williamsport Dickinson with 
advanced standing provided he has earned satisfactory credit at an 
approved college. Application for advanced standing must be 
supported by an honorable dismissal and an official transcript of 
the college previously attended. 

Some academic credit may be allowed for training courses and 
educational experiences in the armed services according to the 
general pattern recommended by "A Guide to the Evaluation of 
Educational Experiences in the Armed Services" issued by the 
American Council on Education, provided such courses or experi- 
ences are appropriately related to a college of liberal arts. 


Freshman: See requirements for admission. 

Sophomore: Not less than 24 semester hours and 21 quality points. 

Junior: Not less than 54 semester hours and 48 quality points. 

Senior: Not less than 86 semester hours and 90 quality points, and 
a reasonable chance of completing all requirements for grad- 


Unclassified: Students who do not wish to enter upon a regular 
course of study may pursue studies offered for which their 
previous training, in the opinion of the college, fits them. 
Only a limited number of unclassified students are accepted. 
Such students are not admitted to candidacy for a degree. 


A credit hour is defined as one hour of classroom work, or the 
equivalent, each week during a full term of sixteen weeks. Ordi- 
narily two hours of laboratory work are rated as one credit hour. 

The letter system of grading with the corresponding quality 
points is used. "A" indicates work of the highest excellence, show- 
ing a superior grasp of the content, as well as independent and 
creative thinking in the subject, and represents a numerical grade 
between 90 and 100. "B" signifies better than average achieve- 
ment wherein the student reveals insight and ability, and represents 
a numerical grade between 80 and 89. "C" is given for satisfactory 
achievement on the college level when the work of the course has 
been conscientious and has shown no considerable deficiency in 
either quality or quantity, and represents a numerical grade between 
70 and 79. "D" indicates that the work of the course has met the 
minimum essentials, and represents a numerical grade of 60 to 69. 
"F" is failure and the work of the course must be satisfactorily 
repeated before any credit can be obtained, and represents numer- 
ical grades below 60. 

Scholastic rank is determined on the quality point system 
where "A" counts 3 quality points per credit hour, "B" counts 2 
points per hour, "C" counts 1 point per hour, "D" carries no point 
value, and "F" counts -1 point per hour. 


The normal load for students is from twelve to fifteen hours of 
academic work and one hour of physical education per semester. 


Students who wish to carry in excess of the normal load are 
charged $12.50 per credit hour. A schedule of more than seventeen 


hours of academic work may be taken if the student has an average 
of 2.0 for all previous work and obtains written permission from 
the Dean of Instruction. 


Students whose grade-point average falls between .00 and .5 are 
placed on probation. Students on probation must maintain an 
average of 1.0 in fifteen hours with fifteen quality points for the 
semester, to be removed from probation. 


Freshmen who fail to maintain an average of at least .00 the 
first semester will be asked to withdraw from the college. The 
college also reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant 
or to dismiss any student at any time if the administration considers 
such action to be for the best interests of the student or the college. 
Students dismissed for academic reasons may request reinstatement 
after one semester. 


The program at Williamsport Dickinson is built on the assump- 
tion that there is value in class and chapel attendance for all 
students. Therefore, all students are expected to attend all classes 
and chapel exercises. 

Specific regulations as to permissable absences and penalties for 
excessive absences are announced from time to time. Responsi- 
bility for learning and complying with these regulations rests with 
the student. 


Upon graduation a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science 
Degree is awarded. This is in accord with the objective of provid- 
ing a background of knowledge in the humanities, social studies, 
and sciences. It is assumed that an intelligent understanding of 
the past enables one better to appreciate the present and to plan 
more ably for the future. Accordingly, certain required courses 
are listed for these areas. In addition a student should have 
selected, by the end of his sophomore year, some field of concen- 
tration in which he wishes to specialize. 


The Arts and Science program is basic to the professions of 
Medicine, Theology, Teaching, Law, Dentistry, and is desirable in 
Engineering Science, Pharmacy, Nursing, and Veterinary. The 
requirements for graduation at Williamsport Dickinson permit 
these pre-requisite subjects. 

Students satisfactorily completing terminal courses in Secre- 
tarial Science, Medical Secretary, and Laboratory Technician, will 
be graduated, but no degree is awarded.

Williamsport Dickinson is anxious to aid her students to prepare 
for living a normal, well-adjusted life, as well as preparing them 
for a variety of careers. The growing belief in professional schools 
that the best preliminary training is a broad cultural education has 
added new emphasis to the type of program now offered by Wil- 
liamsport Dickinson. This program offers a general education, 
conceded as necessary to a well-rounded individual living in today's 
ever smaller world, and yet is equipped to add more specialized 
courses so that a student looking forward to a particular career 
may specialize in the field of his vocational interest. 

Choosing one's life work is an important and serious matter. 
In this selection, Williamsport Dickinson, as a liberal arts college, 
plays an important role. While some students enter college with 
a well-defined aim, many others are far from settled in their minds 
as to their own particular vocation. The first two years of a liberal 
arts course give the student a glimpse into many fields and thus by 
the start of his third or Junior year, the student with this back- 
ground and with the advice of the faculty, usually is well prepared 
to indicate his field of specialization. 

The following pages contain some of the programs offered at 
Williamsport Dickinson. Others are available upon sufficient de- 
mand. It is recommended, therefore, that the student discuss his 
proposed plan with the Director of Admissions, or, if a returning 
student, with the Dean of Instruction.

in the fields of accounting and finance; money and banking; personnel man- 
agement; marketing; and secretarial studies, as well as the broader aspects 
in the field of economic theory. In addition to the professional courses men- 
tioned above, the elements of a broad, cultural background valuable in prepa- 
ration for positions of an administrative and executive nature, are retained.

The modern physician or surgeon is no longer one who has studied 
merely medicine. He is a man with a broad cultural training, capable of 
treating more than physical ailments. Therefore, medical authorities are 
recommending a full four years of a liberal arts program, and requiring 
certain specific subjects in preparation for medical school.

The Music Course of the Junior College Division is a two-year course 
open to those who are regularly enrolled at Williamsport Dickinson. Other 
students attending Williamsport Dickinson, but who are not registered in 
the Music Course, may enroll for music courses with the consent of the 
Department Head and the Dean of Instruction. It is possible to obtain 
credit toward the A.B. degree for certain of these courses as electives. 
Permission to do this, however, must be obtained from the Dean of Instruc- 

Musical excellence in both the fields of fine musicianship and artistic 
performance is sought in every branch of musical work at Williamsport 
Dickinson. Special attention is called to the advantages of the thorough- 
going fundamental training afforded students who desire to matriculate 
to a regular professional school of music. Class and public recitals are 
held frequently to afford students the opportunity to achieve poise in per- 
formance. Instrumental and vocal ensemble work hold an important place 
in the curriculum.

The college is unable to extend credit. It is essential, therefore, that all 
students have sufficient money on hand when they enter to defray their imme- 
diate expenses. 

Tuition for each semester is due and payable in advance on Registration 
Day. The charges for room and board are payable quarterly, the first 
quarter payable in advance and due on Registration Day. Also due at 
Registration are the $10.00 Damage Fee, and $15.00 payment on the Activi- 
ties Fee, less $25.00 credit from Room Deposit Fee made earlier. 

The balance of the semester bill, covering second quarter room and 
board, laboratory fees, and extras will be billed in November and April, for 
the first and second semesters respectively. Discounts, scholarships, and 
working scholarships or allowances will be credited at this time. 

A fee of $5.00 is required of those who fail to register during the regu- 
lar registration period. Students who wish to register on partial payment 
of the tuition fee must obtain permission to do so from the president. A 
carrying charge of $5.00 is made to students who do not pay the entire 
tuition fee at the time of registration. Any student failing to make payment 
within the required time suffers the loss of college privileges and notice of 
his delinquency is sent to his parents or guardians. 

The tuition fee charged to students who leave college on account of 
serious illness is fixed on the following schedule: Students leaving during 
the first four weeks are charged 30%; during the second four weeks, 60%; 


during the third four weeks, 90%; after twelve weeks, full charge. The 
adjustment is determined by the date upon which formal notice of with- 
drawal is sent to the Dean and by the presentation of a doctor's certificate. 

No remission of tuition fees is made to students who withdraw for any 
reason other than serious illness or unavoidable providence, nor to students 
asked to leave school. Board will be pro-rated by the week over period of 

No deduction is made for absence except in prolonged and serious 
illness or other unavoidable providence, when the price of board (not tui- 
tion, room, etc.) is refunded. No deduction is made for the first two weeks 
or the last three weeks of the year or term. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 

Students are subject to suspension if bills are not paid within ten days 
of the dates mentioned unless ample security is furnished. In order to 
graduate and to receive a degree, diploma, or certificate, a student must 
have spent at least two terms in study at the college and also have paid all 
his bills, in cash or its equivalent — not in notes. 

Veterans, both new and returning, are expected to pay for room and 
board as outlined below. 

All students except Veterans under the G. I. Bill, will pay cash for 
books and supplies purchased at the college bookstore. The bookstore will 
be open on Registration Day, and daily thereafter. 

For extra service, such as meals served in rooms, private instruction 
outside of classroom, et cetera, an extra charge is made to both students 
and faculty. Teachers and students remaining at Williamsport Dickinson 
during the short vacations will be charged $2.00 for each day or part of a 
day. Parents or guardians visiting pupils are the guests of the college for 
meals for the first twenty-four hours. Other guests may be entertained if

A limited number of worthy students, members of the Methodist Church, 
may secure loans from the Student Loan Fund administered by the Board of 
Education of that Church. Christian character, satisfactory scholarship, 
promise of usefulness, financial responsibility, and the recommendation of the

rower must sign an interest-bearing promissory note. 

There are also loan funds in the Philadelphia and the Central Pennsyl- 
vania Conferences of the Methodist Church for students from these confer- 
ences on practically the same terms as above. 

Detailed information may be secured from the President.
