General Information 

The School 

lege 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, including courses in music, art, expression 
and business. 


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 Washings 
ton, D. C. Statistics prove it to be the healthiest city in the State 
of Pennsylvania, and it is reported to be the third healthiest city in 
the United States. Williamsport is famous for its picturesque 
scenery, its beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its 
people. The Pennsylvania, the Reading, and the New York Central 
Railroads, with their fast trains, put it within two hours' reach of 
Harrisburg, four and a half hours of Philadelphia, and six hours 
of Pittsburgh. 


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 Episcopal 
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 his- 
tory 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 au- 
thority was for a time exercised. In 1912 it began to confine itself 
to the college preparatory field and continued in that field till 1929. 
After considering both the opportunity and the need of doing more 
advanced work, the Board of Directors at their meeting in October, 
1928, voted to continue the college preparatory and general academic 
work, and to add two years of college work, paralleling the freshman 
and sophomore years in a liberal arts college. These junior college 
courses are outlined herein and may be found on later pages of this 

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 beau- 
tiful 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. 

On the campus stand the buildings conveniently grouped. They 
are of brick and steel construction, heated by steam from a central 
plant, lighted by electricity and supplied throughout with hot and 
cold water and all modern conveniences. The rooms are large, airy 
and well lighted. 

The Main Building is an imposing structure of brick and occu- 
pies the central part of the campus. In this building are the ad- 
ministrative offices, dining room, chapel, school parlor, class rooms, 
and dormitories. There are hardwood floors throughout. 


Bradley Hall is the Fine Arts Building. It was erected in 1895 
of red brick and is modern in construction. The splendid music 
studios and practice rooms, the art studios, and the library axe here. 

The Service Building is also of red pressed brick and is a mod- 
ern fireproof building. The basement and the first floor house the 
heating plant and the laundry. The second and third floors contain 
dormitories and are used for the boys of the Junior College. 

The Gymnasium 

WUliamsport Dickinson is fortunate in having a splendid new 
Gymnasium, dedicated November 8, 1924, which is a popular center 
of physical, social, and cultural activities. The building is 110 ft. 
by 88 ft. 6 in., beautifully designed and of semi-fireproof con- 

The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20x60 ft., 
equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant. The pool is con- 
structed of tUe 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 with separate 
private rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. Pro- 
vision for private dressing rooms and shower rooms for girls and 
women is made. 

The gymnasium floor proper is 90x65 ft, 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. In every way the building is a center of athletic, 
social and cultural activities. 


The purpose of WUliamsport 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 


"// 3^0?' played your pari in the world of men, 
The Critic will call it good." 

years of college work under the most favorable conditions, especially 
appealing to those who graduate from high school at an early age 
and who would like to take the first two years of college work un- 
der 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 Seminary as home like 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 meet 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 
provides for recreation and entertainment. Courses of entertain- 
ment are provided by community organizations which bring the best 
artistic talent to the city. Students whose grades justify it are 
permitted and urged to take advantage of these opportunities. 

Religious Influences 

Williamsport Dickinson is a religious 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 parents. The atmosphere of the school is positively religious. 
Every effort is made to induce students to enter upon the Christian 
life and be faithful thereto. 

A systematic study of the Bible is required of aU students. Reg- 
ular attendance is required at the daily chapel service. Students 


attend the Sunday morning service at one of the churches in the city. 
On Sunday evening all attend a Vesper Service held in the school 
chapel. There is a weekly Prayer Service in charge of the College 
Pastor, a member of the faculty, or a visiting speaker. There are 
chapters of Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Associa- 
tions that do active work in promoting the religious life of the school. 

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 ex- 
perience 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 atmo- 
sphere in the school and in personal interviews with students on 
matters of vital interest to them. 


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 de- 

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, properly administered, is both highly satisfactory 
and desirable. In a coeducational school where boys and girls asso- 
ciate under proper conditions and supervision 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. 


The Faculty is composed of thoroughly trained, carefully se- 
lected Christian men and women. The two ideals they hold before 
themselves are scholarship and character. They live with the stu- 
dents, room on 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) 

The object of this department is to promote the general health 
and the physical and intellectual efficiency of the students. Per- 
sistent 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 activities 
on the part of all students. The athletic teams are carefully select- 
ed and systematically trained. They are sent into a game to win 
if they can, but more emphasis is placed upon playing the game 
fair and straight than upon winning. Williamsport Dickinson is 
represented each year in inter-scholastic contests by football, bas- 
ketball, baseball, track, and tennis teams. 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 de- 
fects as will yield to corrective exercises. A portion of the time 
each week is given to physical culture with the purpose that the 
body may become free and more graceful. Gymnasium work largely 
takes the form of games in swimming, bowling, basketball, and other 
floor work, with attention to those needing special corrective exercises. 
Teams in basketball and swimming represent the school in outside 
competition. Outdoor activities include archery, hockey, tennis, 
skating, hiking, and horseback riding. 

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 
equipment is entirely new, including steel shelving, quartered oak 
tables and chairs, desk, filing cabinets, etc. The more than six 
thousand volumes in the old library were carefully assorted, retain- 
ing four thousand volumes, to which new volumes have been added 
bringing the total to more than seven thousand. 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 and a full time experienced assistant librarian, together 
with student help as needed. 

The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the School. 
Its large collection of books as well as its courses of lectures and 
entertainments are freely open to all students of the college and the 
preparatory department. 


















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 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 
requirements 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 facility is able to become personally acquainted with each 
individual. Class groups are therefore small and permit of 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 
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 participation in both scholastic 
and extra curricular 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. 

Recognition and Transfer Privileges 

Williamsport Dickinson Junior College is a member of the Amer- 
ican Association of Junior Colleges, is approved by the University 
Senate of the Methodist Episcopal Church and the Pennsylvania 
State Council of Education, and accredited by the Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Graduates from 
the Junior College have been accepted with advanced standing by 
the leading colleges and universities to which they have applied for 
admission and have made unusually high scholastic records. 

Individual cases naturally depend on the student's preparation, 
the calibre of his work and the course which he desires to pursue. 
Upon registering at Williamsport Dickinson the student should fully 
acquaint the President with his future plans so that credit require- 
ments of the college to which he plans to go may be anticipated in 


Junior College Curricula 

The Junior College offers the following courses leading to a 
diploma or a certificate: 

I. Arts and Science. 

This course comprises the first two years of a standard four-year 
course in a senior college leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of 
Science degree. 

II. General Course. 

This course is intended for students who do not look forward to a 
four-year college course or to advanced study. It aims to provide the 
essential intellectual backgroimd of an educated person, and to lay the 
foimdations upon which may be built a solid structure of broad knowl- 
edge and good citizenship. 

III. Commerce and Finance and Secretarial Science. 

These courses are intended to furnish a fundamental business edu- 
cation in preparation for positions as secretaries and business executives. 
The Commerce and Finance Course also oflFers the studies in the first 
two years of a four-year college course in Commerce and Finance, lead- 
ing to a Bachelor of Science degree. 

IV. Art.* 

These courses are intended for (1) those who desire to major in 
art in the Fine Arts College of a university; (2) those who desire to 
pursue advanced study in an Art School; (3) those who do not intend

art for its cultural and practical value. 

V. Music. 

The Junior College oflFers a two-year course in music paralleling the 
first two years of courses in a conservatory. 

* For detailed statement of art courses see pages 56 and 56.

(1) To equip the student with a working knowledge of the lan- 
guage necessary to an understanding of German culture; and (2)

The highest standard of 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 fully 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. 

Full and complete courses are offered in 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 discre- 
tion of the Director. The length of time necessary to complete 
any one course depends altogether on the ability and applica- 
tion of the student. All students in the Preparatory Music Course 
must give a group of at least three compositions in public in their 
senior year, and all students in the College Music Course must give 
a graduating recital in their final year of work. 

Two distinct courses are offered in music: (1) the Preparatory 
Music Course, which is a four-year course, designed to be conveniently 
taken along with the College Preparatory Course, or the General 
Academic Course, (see page 58); (2) the College Music Course, 
which combines in an excellent manner a detailed music course and a 
considerable amount of work in the Junior College. 

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 58) 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 Col- 
lege Music Course as outlined in the catalogue below : 


The Music Department maintains a Choral Club, an Orchestra, 
a Band, and a String Ensemble. All Williamsport Dickinson stu- 
dents are eligible to these organizations.

College Preparatory 

Courses of Study 

The Diploma of the Seminary will be awarded to the student 
who completes any one of the following courses: College Prepara- 
tory, General Academic, Regular Commercial, Piano, Voice, Violin, 
Expression, and 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 fifteen and one-half units, three of which 
must be in English, and two and one-half of which must be in 
Mathematics. American History and Civics, one unit of Science, 
not less than two units each of two Foreign Languages or four of one 
Foreign Language and one-half unit in Bible must be included in the 
fifteen and one-half units. 

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, 
two in Foreign Language, one in American History and Civics, one 
in Science, one in Algebra, one in Geometry, and one-half unit in 

The Regular Commercial Course is designed not only to prepare 
the student for immediate employment, but also to give a broad edu- 
cation in the general principles underlying all business. In addition, 
students receive a thorough training in related secondary school sub- 
jects. The business world offers attractive and varied opportunities 
for those whose talents and inclinations fit them for its pursuits. It 


affords the biggest field in which education can be put to practical 
use, and it is the field which pays the highest immediate returns to 
those who possess initiative, ambition, and a careful business training. 

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

A unit represents one year of work, thirty-six weeks, five forty- 
five-minute periods per week, except in the case of English and 
First and Second-year Algebra, in which cases only three-fourths of 
one unit is allowed for one year of work. 

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 

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 certifi- 
cates. A number of colleges are now admitting by certificates only 
those who rank in a certain section of their class, usually the first half.

Courses of Instruction 



The material of the Old and New Testaments is presented in 
story form. The aim is to teach the content of the Bible rather 
than to treat it critically. However, evidences of growth in re- 
ligious thought will be pointed out. Memory passages, maps, and 
reports on special topics are required. Required for graduation. 

One semester. Five hours. 

The course will be offered each semester. 

Classical Languages 

The practical value of a study of the classics has often been 
questioned, but nothing has ever been found to take their place. 
The classics are still retained in the best courses of the best schools, 
and are pre-eminently adapted to bring the student to an acquain- 
tance with the sources of inspiration of all the literature of suc- 
ceeding periods. 


First Year: Careful study of simple Latin forms and construc- 
tions. Sight and prepared translation of connected Latin sentences. 
Prose composition. Vocabulary building. Study of simple English 
derivatives. Frequent reviews to fix the work. 

Second Year: Thorough and systematic review of First Year 
forms and constructions. Continued study of more difficult inflec- 
tions and principles of syntax. The readings are confined to easy 
stories, Roman history and biographies, the first semester, and to 
selections from Caesar, the second semester. Study of English 
derivatives continued. Prose composition. 

Third Year: Review of grammar of the First and Second Years. 
The readings are limited mainly to the select orations and letters of 


Cicero. Attention is directed to the style, personality, and influence 
of the author, and such phases of Roman life are studied as will 
lead to a better understanding of the Latin read. Prose composition. 

Fourth Year: Review of grammar of the previous years. The 
readings are confined to selections from Ovid and Vergil's Aeneid. 
Scansion is emphasized. Assigned readings in mythology. Con- 
tinued study of such phases of Roman life as will help the student 
better to understand the text read. 


The purpose of the work in English is to develop, as far as pas- 
sible, in every student, the ability to speak and write correctly. 
Representative classics of England and America are studied, along 
with the history of the literatures of the two countries. The sched- 
ule of English classics for college entrance requirements is followed 
throughout the four years. An attempt is constantly made to in- 
still a "feeling for language," and to inculcate some conception of 
style, and toward the end of the course interpretative criticism on 
the part of the students themselves is striven for. 

The four books of the "Literature and Life" series, by Green- 
law and others, are used throughout the course — one each year. Be- 
sides the classics from "Literature and Life" listed below for in- 
tensive study during the four years, all the introductions to the 
various chapters in the "Literature and Life" books, as well as 
practically all of the stories, essays, poems, etc., therein, are care- 
fully read. The chapter introductions to Books II and IV com- 
prise brief, but comprehensive, histories of American and English 
Literatures respectively, and are stressed. 

Two pieces of written work are required of each student each 
week. Oral themes are required also from time to time. Each 
student, in addition to his regular class work, must read, and report 
on, four books each year. These books are selected with the ap- 
proval, or on the recommendation of the teacher. 

First Year: The work of the first year includes a thorough study 
of the functions of words, the sentence, and the paragraph. Atten- 


tion is also given to oral expression as a basis for composition writing. 
For first practice frequent short themes are assigned.

cient Mariner; Homer, The Odyssey, Books VI-VIII, Bryant's 
Translation; Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal; Scott, The Lady 
of the Lake; Shakespeare, Julius Caesar; Stevenson, Treasure 

Second Year: This course includes continued study and review

Byron, The Prisoner of Chillon; Arnold, Sohrab and Rustum; Tenny- 
son, Enoch Arden and selections from The Idylls of the King; 
Shakespeare, As You Like It ; Goldsmith, She Stoops to Conquer. 

Third Year: This course includes a continued review of the ele- 
mentary work of the first two years, mentioned above, with increased 
emphasis upon the rhetorical principles of unity, coherence, and 
emphasis in the paragraph and the longer theme. The student 
makes practical application of the principles in themes, which receive 
detailed criticism from the instructor. Special credit is given for 
extra reading. 

An intensive study is made of Shakespeare's Tempest, Franklin's 
Autobiography, Melville's Typee, and selections from the following 
authors: Bryant, Poe, Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, Longfellow, 
Whittier, Holmes, Lowell, Lanier, Whitman, Bret Harte, Mark 
Twain, Hamlin Garland, O. Henry, Morley, Frost. 

Fourth Year: A special effort is made in the fourth year to pre- 
pare the student adequately for Freshman English in college. The 
course includes a thorough review of the principles of grammar, 
composition, and rhetoric. Verse is studied intensively, and other 
types are given adequate attention. English literature, with an ex- 


cursion into American literature to study Emerson, is studied chrono- 
logically. Supplementary readings and reports are required. 

Classics for intensive study: Chaucer, The Prologue to the Can- 
terbury Tales; Everyman; Shakespeare, Macbeth; Bacon, Essays Of 
Studies, Of Truth, Of Wisdom for a Man's Self; Milton, Lycidas: 
Papers from the Spectator; Gray, Elegy Written in a Country 
Churchyard; Goldsmith, The Deserted Village; Macaulay, The 
Life of Samuel Johnson; Arnold, Wordsworth; Emerson, Manners, 
Self Reliance; Rosetti, The Blessed Damozel; Tennyson, A Dream 
of Fair Women. 

Fifth Year: This special course in English is designed pri- 
marily for high school graduates who desire a general review of the 
principles of grammar, composition, and rhetoric before begirming 
the study of English in college. Thorough drill is given, with special 
attention to the needs of the particular group. 


Students are required to fill in outline maps, to take notes of 
class work and to prepare reports on subjects assigned for indi- 
vidual investigation. Collateral reading of not less than five hun- 
dred pages is required. Current topics are emphasized in connec- 
tion with the history courses. 

I. Ancient History begins with a brief introduction of the 
Eastern nations, which is followed by a thorough study of Greece 
and Rome, to about 800 A. D., with special reference to their insti- 
tutions and permanent contributions to the modern world. 

II. Mediaeval and Modern History includes a review of the 
later Roman Empire, the rise of the Christian Church, the later 
mediaeval institutions, the beginnings of the modern age, as well as 
giving suitable attention to the rise of the modern states, European 
expansion, the development of free institutions, economic progress 
and social change.

mercial courses. Standard Arithmetic, Milne. 

Algebra I. This course meets the requirements for elementary 
algebra according to College Board requirements, through quadratic 
equations solved by factoring. 

Algebra II. A month is devoted to a thorough review of first 
year work. Intermediate work is completed through quadratics, the 
progressions, and the binominal theorem and logarithms, fully pre- 
paring the student for advanced work. 

Plane Geometry. A complete working knowledge of the prin- 
ciples and methods of the subject is aimed at, together with a de- 
velopment of the ability to give clear and accurate expression to 
statements and reasons in demonstration. A large amount of inde- 
pendent exercise of the reasoning powers is required. 

Solid Geometry. By emphasis on the effects of perspective, 
and by the use of models, the student is helped to a comprehension 
of figures and relations in three dimensions. The practical appli- 
cation to mensuration problems are a feature of the course. 

Plane Trigonometry. This course involves the solution of plane 
triangles by means of logarithms and the functions of the angles. 
Identities, equations, circular measure, derivation of laws and for- 
mulae are among the topics discussed. 

Mathematics Review. A course presenting a thorough review of 
the first two years of algebra together with plane geometry. It is 
intended for those students having credit in these subjects but who 
need additional preparation for college mathematics. 


Courses are offered in French which fully prepare for college 
entrance. The aim is to give at least the beginnings of a real in- 
sight into the language and literature. As far as possible the lan- 


guage studied is made the language of the class room. Daily exer- 
cises in grammar, translation and composition are supplemented by 
frequent conversational exercises, the memorizing of standard poems,

tive to the student beginning the study of science. It seeks to ap- 
proach the study of life, especially in its simpler forms, with the 
idea of opening before the student the door to a true realization of 
the meaning of physical life and to an appreciation of its problems. 

Physics. One year is devoted to the study of Physics. The 
course includes four recitations and two hours of laboratory work 
per week. Forty experiments are performed, data recorded, and

Entrance Requirements 

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. 


It is the endeavor of Williamsport Dickinson to create a home- 
like atmosphere of good fellowship in which study and recreation are 
pleasantly blended to achieve a maximum amount of progress with- 
out 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 experiences 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 discipline are encouraged by the school authorities as exert- 
ing a definite influence upon the building of good character and good 

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 wUl 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. 


As students are responsible to Williamsport Dickinson en route to 
and from school, they are expected to report at the Seminary imme- 
diately upon arriving in Williamsport. Williamsport Dickinson ex- 
pects 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, in- 
asmuch 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 supervising all 

No firearms of any kind are allowed in the buildings. 

All students are expected to provide themselves with a hymnal 
for use in the chapel service. 

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, nor are they 
permitted to hire or leave the city in automobiles without special per- 

Rooms at Williamsport Dickinson are thoroughly furnished. A 
comfortable bed, pillows, pillow slips, sheets, blankets, and counter- 
panes are furnished. One 50 watt bulb is supplied for each room. 
For each additional light socket in the room the student will be 
charged $2.50 each semester. The student should bring the follow- 
ing: 4 table napkins, 2 laundry bags, 1 pair of slippers, shoe polish- 
ing outfit, 1 clothes brush, 1 bath robe, 6 face towels, 4 bath towels. 
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 

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 Semi- 
nary 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.
