General Information 



The School 

WILLIAMSPORT Dickinson Seminary and Junior College 
offers college preparatory and junior college courses for 
young men and women. It provides facilities for both day 
school and boarding students offering two years of college and four 
years of preparatory work. 

Location 

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 Washing- 
ton, D. C. Williamsport is famed for its picturesque scenery, its 
beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its people. The 
Pennsylvania and the Reading Railroads, with their fast trains, and 
the Lakes-to-Sea and the Greyhound Buses put it within two hours' 
reach of Harrisburg, four and a half hours of Philadelphia, and six 
hours of Pittsburgh and New York. 



History 

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 
is 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 patron- 
age of the old Baltimore Conference. It was acquired in 1869 and 
is still owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of the Central Pennsyl- 
vania Conference of the Methodist Church, and is regularly char- 
tered 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 

10 



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 preparatory field and contin- 
ued in that field till 1929. After considering both the opportunity 
and the need for doing more advanced work, the Board of Directors 
at their meeting in October, 1928, voted to continue the college pre- 
paratory and general academic work, and to add two years of college 
work, paralleling the freshman and sophomore years in a liberal 
arts college. 

Grounds and Buildings 

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 variety 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 beautiful 
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. 



Main 

The Main Building is an imposing structure of brick and occu- 
pies the central part of the campus. In this building are the admin- 
istrative ofiices, 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 are here. 

11 



Eveland Hall 

The Service Building is also of red pressed brick and is a modern 
fireproof building. The basement and the first floor house the heat- 
ing plant and the laundry. The second and third floors contain 
dormitories. 



The Gymnasium 

Williamsport-Dickinson is fortunate in having a splendid new 
Gymnasium, dedicated November 8, 1924, which is a popular center 
of activities. The building is 110 feet by 88 feet, beautifully de- 
signed 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 large sash to the open air 
making a sunlit pool at nearly all hours of the day. 

There are also two bowling alleys of latest design and separate 
private rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. Pro- 
vision 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 
pretentious productions. 

Athletic Field 

Built partially on the site 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 Boule- 
vard on the north. Ample room is provided for tennis courts, foot- 
ball field, and baseball diamond. 

New bleachers have been erected which accommodate 1,000 
people . They ar e of steel and concrete foundations on which have 
been placed wooden seats. The rear wall is of an attractive brick 

12 




Girls' Dormitory 



construction surmounted with a wrought iron fence. The entire 
athletic field is surrounded with the six-foot steel fence. Evergreens, 
rose of Sharon, and spiraea line the inside of the fence. 

The Clarke Memorial 

This new chapel and dining hall, which has been 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. With careful attention hav- 
ing been given to acoustics, the chapel proper provides facilities 
for devotional services, assemblies, dramatic concerts, and lectures. 
It is planned, with the balcony, to seat six hundred. 

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 available. 

Modern methods of heating and air-conditioning are used, and 
careful attention is given to illumination and to design of lighting 
fixtures. 

The erection of this building fits into the plan of an attractive 
quadrangle, and 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 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 
studios and several smaller rooms for practice purposes. The in- 
terior walls are finished in light buff and the floors in oak. There 
is a total of eighteen rooms in the new building which is devoted 
entirely to Fine Arts.

Aim 

The purpose of Williamsport-Dickinson is to prepare students for 
their life work in a homelike religious atmosphere at a minimum cost. 
In its Preparatory Department it fits its students for any college or 
technical school. For those who do not plan to go to college it offers 
exceptionally strong courses leading to appropriate diplomas. 

In the Junior College Department it aims to give two years of 
college work under the most favorable conditions, especially appeal- 
ing to those who graduate from high school at an early age and who 
would like to take the first two years of college work under conditions 
affording more intimate personal contacts with the teachers and 
assuring personal interest and helpful guidance. It offers a large 
amount of college work in the form of electives to those whose college 
career will likely be confined to two years. 



A Home School 

Williamsport-Dickinson recognizes the fact that it is more than a 
school. It accepts responsibility for the home life of its students as 
well. Every effort is put forth to make the school as homelike 
as possible. Here lasting friendships are formed, and memories are 
stored up to which they may, in future years, look back with affec- 
tion and pride. 

Cultural Influences 

Williamsport-Dickinson aims to develop in its students an easy 
familiarity with the best social forms and customs. Young men and 
women met in the dining hall, at receptions, and other social func- 
tions. These contacts together with frequent talks by instructors do 
much to develop poise and social ease. Persons of prominence are 
brought to the school for talks and lectures, and excellent talent pro- 
vides for recreation and entertainment. Courses of entertainment 
are provided by community organizations which bring the best artis- 
tic talent to the city. Students whose grades justify it are permitted 
and urged to take advantage of these opportunities. 

14 



Religious Influences 

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

A systematic study of the Bible is required of students. (Op- 
tional with non-Protesants). Regular attendance is required at 
the chapel service conducted twice a week. Students attend the 
Sunday morning service at one of the churches in the city. On 
Sunday evening all attend a Vesper Service. 

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

Through the generosity of the late Honorable M. B. Rich, for 
eighteen years President of the Board of Directors, a Department of 
Religion has been established in the school, and the professor in 
charge of this department is also College Pastor and gives a large 
portion of his time in promoting a helpful religious atmosphere in 
the school and in personal interviews with students on matters of 
vital interest to them. 

Government 

It is aimed to develop in each student a sense of loyalty to the 
School and a sense of fitness in his actions through the appeals of 
ideals and examples. Offenses are dealt with by the withdrawal of 
certain student privileges; while good work in class room and good 
conduct in school life are rewarded by special privileges granted only 
upon the attainment of certain levels of scholarship and deportment. 

Certain phases of the discipline in the dormitory lives of the 
students are supervised and regulated by student government organi- 
zations. The officials of these groups are elected at frequent inter- 
vals. Thus the students are presented the opportunity of learning 
how to be governed, through accepting temporarily the responsi- 
bility of governing others. 

15 



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

Coeducation 

Coeducation, properly administered, is both highly satisfactory 
and desirable. In a coeducational school where boys and girls asso- 
ciate under proper conditions and supervisions their influences are 
mutually helpful. Boys become more refined and careful of their 
appearance and conduct. Girls learn to appreciate the sterling 
qualities of purposeful boys when they are permitted to associate and 
compete with them in the activities of school life. 

The apartments of the girls are entirely separate from those of 
the boys. Proper supervision of the girls and boys is maintained 
at all times. 

Faculty 

The Faculty is composed of thoroughly trained, carefully selected 
Christian men and women. The two ideals they hold before them- 
selves are scholarship and character. Some live with the students, 
room in the same halls, eat at the same tables, and strive in every way 
to win their confidence and friendship. Williamsport-Dickinson 
aims to make the home and working conditions of the members of the 
faculty so pleasant they will be encouraged to do their very best work 
and look forward to years of pleasant and helpful service in the 
school. This policy has resulted in building up a faculty of which 
we are justly proud. 

Athletics and Physical Training (Boys) 

Persistent effort is made to interest everybody in some form of 
indoor and outdoor sports. Intramural athletic games between 
groups of students not members of varsity teams encourage athletic 

16 




The Gymnasium 



activities on the part of all students. An excellent athletic field 
offers every facility for football, baseball, tennis, and other outdoor 
sports. During the winter months the tennis courts on the campus 
are flooded providing an opportunity for skating. 



Athletics and Physical Training (Girls) 

The aim of this work is the care and the development of the body 
by means of appropriate exercises. The results to be achieved are 
better health, good poise, and the overcoming of such physical defects 
as will yield to corrective exercises. Gymnasium work largely takes 
the form of games in swimming, bowling, basketball, and othed floor 
work, with attention to those needing special corrective exercises. 
Outdoor activities include archery, hockey, tennis, skating, hiking. 



The Dr. E. J. Gray Memorial Library 

The library is playing an increasingly important part in any 
educational program today. Recognizing this, Williamsport-Dick- 
inson completely reorganized its library with the beginning of its 
Junior College program. Commodious, well lighted, and attractive 
quarters conveniently located in Bradley Hall were provided. The 
more than six thousand volumes in the old library were carefully 
sorted, retaining four thousand volumes, to which new volumes 
have been added bringing the total to eleven thousand. New 
volumes are added each year. The majority of the new volumes 
are directly related to the various departments of the Junior College. 
A very excellent list of reference works has been provided and an 
attractive 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 interest. 

The library is in charge of a full time professionally trained 
librarian together with student help as needed. 

The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the School. 
Its large collection of books is freely open to all students of the 
college and the preparatory department. 

17 



The Junior College 

The Junior College has become one of the most significant devel- 
opments in the field of higher education. The high school graduate 
usually needs to make new social contacts, to learn to accept respon- 
sibility, and to form systematic habits of study and of living. The 
Junior College offers these advantages in connection with college 
studies so that the student's educational progress is not retarded 
while these important habits are being established. 

The Junior College offers two types of courses: (1) those 
which are called terminal, that is, complete educational units in 
particular fields; and (2) those which cover the first two years of a 
four-year college for those who desire to complete their degree re- 
quirements later. Both types of courses meet the highest college 
standards and afford both pleasant and desirable college experience. 

The development of the junior college is the result of an increas- 
ing demand for an individualized program in higher education, a 
program in which emphasis is placed on meeting the cultural and 
practical needs of the individual student. Instruction in small 
groups is offered in the place of mass education. At Williamsport- 
Dickinson the student bridges the gap between high school and col- 
lege by easy, natural stages, each young man and woman being given 
a chance for self examination and experiment before definitely decid- 
ing upon the courses which will lead to his or her chosen profession 
or vocation. As the enrollment is purposely kept at relatively low 
figures, the faculty is able to become personally acquainted with each 
individual. Class groups are therefore small and permit constant 
discussion and participation by each student in class problems. 

Experience has shown that many high school graduates are im- 
mature when they enter college, and fail to succeed because they are 
not able to cope with the freedom and responsibilities suddenly thrust 
upon them. The individualized program in practice at Williamsport- 
Dickinson seeks to remedy this condition by personalized instruction 
and intimate social contacts. The problems of the student become 
the very real problems of the instructor who with his personal ac- 
quaintance with the pupil can guide his energies in the direction best 
fitted to his aptitudes and talents. Many noteworthy successes result 
from what otherwise would be failure. Too large a percentage of 

18 



students who enroll in a four-year college, do not, for various reasons, 
remain in college until graduation. It is better for these students to 
enter a Junior College and complete the course, receiving a diploma, 
than to have the feeling of having dropped from college at a time 
when the work was only partially completed. 

The small size of the student group is a spur to greater partici- 
pation in both scholastic and extracurricular activities developing 
thereby the qualities of both character and leadership. Thus the 
Williamsport-Dickinson Junior College offers a well rounded and 
comprehensive program that not only prepares the student for his 
profession or vocation but for life as well. 

Guidance 

For acquainting new students with the major purposes and 
procedures of college life a course in Orientation, meeting one 
hour per week for the first semester, is required of all freshmen. 
This course assists the new student to bridge the gap between high 
school and college. 

Through lectures and discussions during the regular class 
periods, freshmen are given information as to how to budget their 
time, how to take notes in a lecture course, the formation of correct 
study habits, and the proper arrangement of the study room in 
order that it may be more conducive to uninterrupted work. They 
are given instruction by the College Librarian in correct library 
methods. 

Prior to the student's entrance to a course of study, there is a 
personal interview between the President or Dean and the candidate 
for admission. These interviews are not short, but rather sufficient 
time is taken to obtain a picture of the student — his background, 
interests, and plans for the future. On the basis of preparatory 
school records, aptitude tests, psychological examinations and voca- 
tional inventory an evaluation of the student is formed. 

The work of the Orientation course and the admission confer- 
ences are supplemented by personal counseling between the students 
and the orientation instructor or Dean. Periodic checks are made 
on the student's class and laboratory work as well as the social 
adjustments involved. If results are not satisfactory immediate 
steps are taken to rectify the situation.

Courses of Instruction 

JUNIOR COLLEGE 

Art 

The aim of the art course is to give the student thorough training 
in artistic creation; to guide in developing taste and power of dis- 
crimination in general aesthetic appreciation; to prepare for profes- 
sional art work; to give practical training which may be put to use in 
the business world; and to create a desire for research in the great 
art periods of the past. Care is taken not to interfere with indi- 
viduality but to develop the student's own latent abilities. 

A well-balanced and practical art course is provided by dividing 
the time devoted to art subjects as follows: Fifty per cent to 
drawing, twenty-five per cent to design, and twenty-five per cent 
to color. This work is taught through different subjects, which 
naturally somewhat overlap. 

The work of the year must be left for exhibition during com- 
mencement. 

First Year 

While encouragement is given to the development of individual 
aptitudes, the first year's art work for all students is practically 
the same. Through the application of the work in Drawing, Design, 
and Color, the student is enabled to build a foundation suitable for 
later specialization. 

Second Year 

The individual projects in Drawing, Design, and Color given to 
the students will be modified to meet the particular needs of each 
field of specialization as shown below:

Music 

Musical excellence and artistic worth is maintained in every 
branch of the musical work at Williamsport-Dickinson. Special 
attention is called to the advantages attendant upon pursuing a 
course of study in a regular and full equipped school of music. 
Private and public recitals are frequently held, in which the students 
take part. Instrumental and vocal ensemble work also has a definite 
place in the curriculum. 

A two-manual electric Everett Orgatron with chimes is main- 
tained for organ lessons and practice. The console of the Orgatron 

40 



is designed to conform to the specifications set up and approved 
by the American Guild of Organists and the Royal College of 
Organists (Great Britain). 

The entire Music Department, except the orgatron, is housed in 
the new Fine Arts Building, opened in 1940. 

Full and complete courses are offered in Organ, Piano, Voice, 
Violin, Ear Training, Harmony, History and Appreciation of 
Music, Theory, and Ensemble. All certificate and diploma students 
are required to do a certain amount of public recital work, and all 
other students are required to appear in private or public recitals 
at the discretion of the Music Faculty. The length of time neces- 
sary to complete any one course depends altogether on the ability 
and application of the student. 

All students in the College Music Course must give a graduating 
recital in their final year of work. 

The College Music Course is a two-year course, and is open only 
to those students who present the same entrance qualifications as 
those who enter the regular Junior College work, namely, a high 
school diploma. In addition, it is understood that the student shall 
present musical qualifications equivalent to the Preparatory Music 
Course as outlined in this catalogue (page 60) with the exception of 
the theoretical work. A diploma in College Music is granted to a 
student who successfully completes the required work in the College 
Music Course as outlined in the catalogue on page 25. 

The Music Department maintains a Choral Club, a Double Male 
Quartette, a Chapel Choir, an Orchestra, and a String Ensemble. All 
Williamsport-Dickinson students are eligible to these organizations. 
In the spring all piano students of the preparatory school and 
junior college are given the opportunity of playing in the National 
Piano Playing Auditions when the school is host to the Williamsport 
chapter of the National Guild of Piano Teachers. The auditions are 
held in centers from coast to coast for the purpose of stimulating a 
deeper interest in artistic piano playing.

COLLEGE PREPARATORY 
DEPARTMENT 



Admission 

Students may be enrolled in the Preparatory Department at any 
time and will be placed in those classes to which their previous 
academic record justifies admission. 



Courses of Study 

The Diploma of the Seminary will be awarded to the student who 
completes any one of the following courses: College Preparatory, 
General Academic, Piano, Voice, Violin, or Art. 

Students completing a course in one of the special departments 
but without the necessary academic requirements will be awarded a 
certificate instead of a diploma. 

The College Preparatory course offered by the Seminary covers 
the needs of those preparing for college and technical school. 

The minimum requirement for graduation in the College Pre- 
paratory Course consists of seventeen units. These must include 
four units in English, three in Mathematics, one in American History 
and Government, one of Science, not less than two units each of two 
Foreign Languages or three of one Foreign Language, and one-half 
unit in Bible. 

The General Academic course is not intended necessarily to pre- 
pare for college. The minimum requirement for graduation in this 
course consists of seventeen units, four of which must be in English, 
one in American History and Government, one in Science, one in 
Algebra, one in Geometry, and one-half unit in Bible. 

66 



A student in any course must have to his credit one semester of 
Bible^ four periods per week. He must also have one year of Physi- 
cal Training for each year spent in Williamsport-Dickinson. 

Wherever elective subjects are listed in any course, it is the aim 
of the faculty to schedule a student in the way which will best train 
him or her for the particular college course or vocation to be pursued. 

Emphasis will be laid upon thoroughness of work. The faculty 
reserves the right to limit the number of studies which any pupil will 
be allowed to carry. 

Students who do not intend to pursue one of the regular courses, 
with the consent of their parents and the approval of the faculty, may 
elect such studies as they desire. 

At least two years of any language elected in any course will 
be required for graduation. 

For more detailed information, see Courses of Instruction. 

Certificates, with recommendation for admission to college, will 
be granted in any subject only to students who make a grade of at 
least 80%. 

Our certificates are accepted by all colleges accepting certificates. 
A number of colleges are now admitting by certificates only those 
who rank in a certain section of their class, usually the first half. 

The shifting of parents from one city to another because of 
employment changes causes difficulty to arise in the consequent 
changes of pupils from one school system to another. Williamsport- 
Dickinson provides a permanent school home for children who 
would be affected in this way. The advantage of remaining under 
the same tutelage for the four years of high school can readily 
be seen.

Art 

A Diploma in Preparatory Art will be awarded to students who

same for all students, although individual abilities and aptitudes are 
encouraged. (The prerequisite course is not required of those who 
wish special work not leading to a diploma). In the second year,

following courses: Illustration, Commercial Art, Costume Design, 
Interior Decoration. For a description of the prerequisite and elec- 
tive courses (see pages 26-28).

Special Information 

Any young person of good moral character may enter Williams- 
port-Dickinson at any time of year for a single semester or longer. 

Applicants must bring a certificate of work done and recom- 
mendations from the schools previously attended, or from former 
instructors, or other responsible persons. 



Regulations 

It is the endeavor of Williamsport-Dickinson to create a homelike 
atmosphere of good fellowship in which study and recreation are 
pleasantly blended to achieve a maximum amount of progress without 
an excess of restrictive disciplinary measures. However, a certain 
number of regulations are naturally essential to the smooth running 
of an organization the size of Williamsport-Dickinson. The school 
regulations, in addition to those which are given here, are published 
in the form of a hand book, which will be furnished to each student 
upon matriculation. These regulations have evolved from the experi- 
ences of many years which have shown that Williamsport-Dickinson 
has a group of students of unusually high calibre, the majority of 
whom have a definite goal in life. Student government and self dis- 
cipline are encouraged by the school authorities as exerting a definite 
influence upon the building of good character and good citizenship. 

Students from a distance are required to live in the building, but 
those having near relatives residing in Williamsport are sometimes 
granted permission to make their homes with them. 

Students will find it much easier to grasp the work and get a good 
start for the school year if they plan to arrive on the first day of the 
semester and remain until the last day. 

Absences from classes at the beginning or end of holiday recesses 
count double and will only be excused for very special reasons. 

It is suggested to parents that they should not call their children 
home during the semester as any absence interferes with good work. 

76 



As students are responsible to Williamsport-Dickinson en route 
to and from school, they are expected to report at the Seminary 
immediately upon arriving in Williamsport. Williamsport-Dickin- 
son expects each student to maintain the honor of the school by 
such conduct as becomes a lady or a gentleman. 

Students should be sparingly supplied with spending money, 
inasmuch as the tuition and board take care of all ordinary expenses. 
If it is so desired, a member of the faculty will act as patron, 
paying weekly such allowances as may be designated and supervis- 
ing all expenditures. 

Students should place money and valuables in the school safe. 
The school is not to be held responsible for money or valuables not 
placed therein. 

No firearms of any kind are allowed in the buildings. 

Students in residence at Williamsport-Dickinson are not permit- 
ted to maintain automobiles at the school or in the city, except 
for special reasons, and on permission from the President or the 
Dean, nor are they permitted to hire or leave the city in automobiles 
without special permission. 

Rooms at Williamsport-Dickinson are thoroughly furnished. A 
comfortable bed, pillows, pillow slips, sheets, blankets, and counter- 
panes are furnished. The school supplies two double blankets. If 
students wish more than this number they should bring them. Every 
article of clothing that goes to the laundry should be plainly marked 
with the student's full name with THE BEST INDELIBLE INK 
THAT CAN BE PURCHASED or with name tapes. 

Teachers and students remaining at Williamsport-Dickinson dur- 
ing the short vacations will be charged $1.50 for each day or part of 
a day. Parents or guardians visiting pupils are the guests of the 
Seminary for meals for the first twenty-four hours. Other guests 
may be entertained if permission is secured from the President. 
Their student hosts are expected to pay the regular rates for their 
entertainment. 

77 



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 coverage for women is $500 
and for men $250. All students are advised to carry this protection.

the second semester April 3. 

Students are subject to suspension if bills are not paid within 
ten days of the dates mentioned unless ample security is furnished. 

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

No payment or any part of the same will be refunded in the 
case of a student who withdraws on account of homesickness or 
other unnecessary cause since the school is unnecessarily inconveni- 
enced and disturbed by such withdrawal. 

Music and Art, when taken in addition to a regular course, 
cost extra. 

80 



For extra service, such as meals served in rooms, additional 
laundry work, private instruction outside the class room, et cetera, 
an extra charge is made to both students and faculty. 

In order to graduate and to receive a diploma or certificate a 
student must have spent at least two terms in study at the Seminary 
and also have paid all his bills, in cash or its equivalent — not in notes.

following : 

( 1 ) Two students from the same family at the same time.

Not more than one discount will be allowed to any student. 

The Seminary reserves the right to withdraw any discount from 
a student whose work or behavior is unsatisfactory. 

No discount is allowed on Music and Art, whether taken as 
extra subjects in connection with a regular course or whether the 
student is majoring in one of these subjects.
