The ftrst meeting of the Board of Trustees was held on January 27, 1896 and committees were appointed to supervise activities with relation to building, finance, machinery, education and other necessary executive functions. During the year 1897 the city of New Bedford appropriated S25,000 for the use of the school and the Commonwealth of Massachu- setts appropriated an additional $25,000 the following year. With these funds the first of the present five buildings was constructed. The first building, consisting of three stories and a basement, com- prised about 22,000 square feet of floor space. During the first 25 years of the school's existence, four buildings were added; three in the form of additions and one, the recitation building, a separate structure, was connected to the others by an overpass and tunnel. Since its founding the Institute has attempted to organize and conduct programs in technology which will equip the student to cope success- fully with problems relative to industrial development, manufacturing, and research. It has been its policy to provide consistently instruction in both the theory and practice in all phases of dyeing, manufacturing, and distribution of textiles. In addition to its program in textile education, the Institute has over the years introduced programs in technology relative to industrial areas other than textile manufacturing. These include courses of instruction in textile chemistry, mechanical engineering, textile design and fashion, and industrial electronics and electricity. The New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology is proud of its professional standing and of the recognition it receives throughout the world. This recognition is evidenced by the large number of foreign students who attend each year. The current enrollment consists of stu- dents from approximately fifteen states and twelve foreign countries. Among the latter are Mexico, Israel, Ecuador, Salvador, Korea and Paki- stan. Others came from France, Chile, Bolivia, Canada, China, Haiti, Brazil and Greece. THE NEW SCIENCE HALL The new science hall, which will be completed in the fall of 1955, comprises the major portion of the Institute's expansion program for more adequate classroom and laboratory facilities. This new addition, involving an outlay of approximately one million dollars, will supple- ment the present facilities of the college with modern engineering, 10 science, and research laboratories. These will include mechanical engi- neering, electrical engineering, physics, physical chemistry, and micro- biology laboratories. In addition, this new construction will house all administrative offices, additional classrooms, an amphitheatre, and a modern gymnasium. Plans are now being completed to add a new audi- torium to the present expansion program. COLLEGE FACILITIES Library The Institute's library contains approximately 6,000 volumes, all of which pertain for the most part, to textile manufacturing, chemistry, and general engineering. Present plans call for a library in the new addi- tion to house a minimum of 15,000 volumes. The library currently subscribes to approximately one hundred journals and publications pub- lished periodically by professional societies and industrial organizations. The students also have access to the New Bedford Public Library. This library contains a very comprehensive collection of about 250,000 volumes. All courses offered at the institute require the student to make full use of all these facilities. Bookstore The Institute maintains a bookstore on the second floor of the admin- istration building. This store is operated on a non-profit basis. All supplies, books, etc., are sold at very little above cost— this difference covers the cost of maintaining the store. The student will find all the supplies he needs in this bookstore. Al- though the student is not required to purchase these supplies, he is advised not to buy elsewhere until he is certain those things he will buy are ap- proved by the person in charge of the course in which the equipment is to be used. All supplies in the bookstore are approved. ENVIRONMENT The Institute is situated in the city of New Bedford, Massachusetts. It is located along the main bus line; both the bus terminal and railroad station are within walking distance. New Bedford, an industrial city, is an especially suitable location for a school of this type. For many years it has been recognized as the world's largest manufacturer of fine cotton yarns and fancy fabrics. In recent years the industry of this city has become more diversified. Many new industries have found New Bedford, with its skilled manpower, par- i icularly suited to their type of work. These industries include the world's largest manufacturers of electronic equipment along with an important manufacturer of condensers. One of the world's most important manu- facturers has long been established here and more recently a leading manufacturer of machine tools has migrated to this industrial city. Textile, machine tool, and rubber manufacturing or processing do not constitute the whole of New Bedford's diversified industry. This historical city has long been recognized as a leading fishing port. Each year, mil- 11 lions of dollars worth of fish are brought into this port, either for direct shipment or for New Bedford's large fish processing houses. These industries, both old and new, afford the Institute many oppor- tunities for planned inspection trips. This, we feel, is an invaluable aid in acquainting the student with the practical phases of his academic work. Students wishing to remain in New Bedford during the summer recess will find many opportunities to work during this period. Because of the nature of the city's industry, the student often finds work which is in his chosen field, thereby gaining practical experience as well as financial aid to meet the expenses incurred during the school year. The civic center of New Bedford is a few minutes walk from the school grounds. Here the student will find the municipal building, the main library, \eterans administration building and many other city and county buildings. Close to the civic center he will find the city's largest shopping and theatre district. STUDENT EXPENSES Tuition and General Fees The tutition for all courses varies according to the residential status of the student. For residents of Massachusetts, the rate is one hundred dol- lars per year; for residents of other states, the fee is two hundred and fifty dollars. The rate for all foreign students is five hundred dollars. All students pay a registration fee of $2.50. LABORATORY AND SPECIAL FEES (for one academic year) Athletics $15.00 Student Activities 10.00 Chemistry Laboratory Chemistry majors 10.00 Non-chemistry majors 5.00 Machine Shop Laboratory 1.00 Chemicals (for non-residents of Massachusetts 10.00 Books and Supplies (estimated) 75.00 REFUNDS Any student withdrawing during the first six weeks of the semester is eligible to receive a refund according to the following schedule: Request Refund Less than one week 100% Less than two weeks 80% Between two and six weeks 40% After six weeks 0% STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS Student Council This is a body consisting of elected representatives from each of the four classes, and one faculty representative. Its purpose is to study prob- lems of the student body, class activities, and the various matters of 12 student organization. The council represents the student body in pro- posing changes or making recommendations to the college authorities. Interfraternity Council An organization consisting of members representing each of the men's and women's fraternities. One member is chosen from the faculty. This body determines the rushing season and the rules which control rush- ing. It has charge of enforcement of all institute rules regarding mem- bership in fraternities. Fraternities There are three national, professional and social men's fraternities and one women's sorority. These are: Phi Psi, Delta Kappa Phi, Sigma Phi Tau, Kappa Sigma Phi. These fraternities maintain chapter rooms and all play a major part in the social and athletic affairs of the Institute. Athletic Association This is a body consisting of representatives of the Board of Trustees and representatives of the faculty. The purpose of this group is to determine all athletic policies. The athletic council determines the budgets for each sport and all schedules must meet their approval. College Glee Club For all students interested in music, a Glee Club has been organized. The Glee Club is supported by the Student Council. The purpose of the Club is to furnish both a musical and social outlet to its members, who meet weekly with a capable director, preparing a repetoire of songs for different functions during the school year. Engineering Club This organization is available only to those students majoring in mechanical engineering. Radio Club This organization is composed of students from the electrical or mechanical engineering department who are interested in amateur activity— transmission, reception, and experimentation. Student Chapter of the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists This organization is open to students majoring in Textile Chemistry, Dyeing, and Finishing. Camera Club A club for all students interested in photography as a hobby. A com- plete dark-room is available to club members. Circle K Club This organization is sponsored by Kiwanis International. Tech Talk A student quarterly publication. 13 Fabricator The student annual illustrated publication sponsored by the senior class. ACADEMIC PROMOTION In general, a student to be classified as a Sophomore must have ob- tained at least two- thirds of the semester hours prescribed in his Fresh- man program plus an equal number of quality points; as a Junior at least three-fourths of the prescribed semester hours for the previous two years plus an equal number of quality points; and as a Senior at least nine-tenths of the prescribed semester hours for his previous three years plus an equal number of quality points. STUDENT CONDUCT It is to be assumed that students matriculating in any one of the vari- ous programs offered by the Institute have attained sufficient maturity and developed those attributes conducive to an adequate preparation for professional careers. This means that the administration at the Insti- tute expects that each student will have developed an ability to get along well with others and to maintain a personal high standard of honesty and moral conduct. The Institute has not established any rigid rules restricting the conduct of individuals or groups of students. However, it will be understood that a student may be dropped from the rolls or sub- jected to other disciplinary action, for conduct which is illegal, immoral, or not in keeping with the best interest of the Institute. GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING Because the Institute is a small college, a close personal relationship is maintained between the student body and the faculty. Through the Dean of Students and Faculty Advisors, assistance is given to students during the year in the scheduling of their classes and in solving problems which may arise during the year. Whenever it is deemed necessary, correspondence and interviews are entered into between the Dean of students and families of those students whose performance is not con- sidered satisfactory. The freshman year begins with a Freshman Orientation Period im- mediately preceding the fall term. Registration, general intelligence and aptitude tests are completed, orientation lectures on campus and pro- fessional life are given. Interpretive results of the intelligence and apti- tude tests are available to the students, to the Dean of Students, and to the faculty advisors to aid in the making of decisions throughout the student's college carrer. Laboratory and drawing courses are arranged so that the average stu- dent will not find it necessary to supplement the scheduled hours with outside preparation. An average of one and one-half hours of preparation for each hour of lecture or recitation will be required of freshmen. 14 ADMISSIONS The Institute will accept for admission to the freshman class graduates of recognized high schools having 15 high school credits. Subjects required for entrance: 1. Prescribed 7 units 2. Optional units English— 3 units Mathematics— unlimited Algebra— 1 unit Science— unlimited Geometry— 1 unit Social Studies— not more than U. S.

His qualities of leadership, sports- manship and lair play are all considered. Honorabli S.wn i i Ross Memorial Medal: This medal is presented to the outstanding evening student lor the current year. This medal is presented by Miss Beryl I. Ross in memory 17 of her father. Mr. Ross had in mind the value of textile education and its necessity for the mill employee to advance. New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology owes a debt of gratitude to Honorable Samuel Ross who, for fifty years, served as a member of the Trustee Board, many years as its president. The records indicate that Mr. Ross originated the idea that New Bedford should have a textile school. Through his untiring efforts to have textile school fa- cilities provided for the people of New Bedford and vicinity, a bill was filed by Mr. Ross to secure same. On June 5, 1895 Governor Frederick T. Greenhalge signed the bill providing for the establishment of New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology. Honorable Samuel Ross may well be called the original founder of the New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology. ATHLETICS The New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology, its adminis- tration and faculty, approve and encourage a full program of inter-col- legiate and intramural athletics. The Athletic Association plans and provides for the fullest possible program of inter-class and inter-fraternity sports. Varsity teams include football, baseball, basketball, tennis, and soccer. The Institute schedules for its games most of the recognized colleges of its athletic class. These schedules include many varied and interesting road trips, The Institute is an active member in the Southern New England Coastal Conference in all sports. The southern New England Coastal Conference consists of many of the smaller colleges in Southeastern New England. ADVANCED STANDING Undergraduates of other recognized colleges who apply for admission to New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology as transfer students with advanced standing must present an official statement of honorable dismissal, a transcript of their college record, and a marked copy of the college's catalog to describe courses completed and offered for transfer credit. Only those courses will be accepted which fit the curriculum re- quirements of the Institute, and for which the earned grade was "C" or better. GRADES AND GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 1. Requirements. The requirements for graduation are the satisfactory completion of all courses in one of the prescribed curricula of the Institute, with a total of credit points not less than the minimum number of credit hours required in the individual curriculum. 2. Grading System. The following grading system shall be used in determining the above: A — Excellent (90 and above) B - Good (80-89) 18 C - Passing (70-79) D — Passing without credit points (60-69) F — Failure (below 60) 1 — Incomplete— A grade of incomplete may be assigned by the in- structor Avhen a legitimate reason exists for the failure to com- plete the work on the date required. This grade indicates credit is withheld without prejudice to the student's rating pending completition of the required work. A grade of "I" must be re- moved within 30 academic calendar days after the completion of the course. W — Withdraw— A student may voluntarily withdraw from a course without prejudice not later than the mid-semester. A with- drawal after the mid-semester is recorded as "F" or failure. A deficiency resulting from failure may be removed by (1) repeating the course the next time it may be re-scheduled, (2) securing transfer credit in a comparable course from some other accredited institution. Only grades of "C" or better are accepted for transfer credit. Such courses for transfer must be approved in advance by the Dean of Stu- dents. When a subject which has been failed is repeated at the institute, the new grade is entered on the student's record in addition to the original grade. 3. Credits and Averages. The Institute operates on the credit-point system. Term credits rep- resent the number of hours of work completed successfully; credit points are determined by the grade earned; (A) 3 credit points for each credit hour; (B) 2 credit points for each credit hour; (C) 1 credit point for each credit hour. A student is not required to repeat a subject in which a grade of "D" is obtained; he receives, however, no credit points to be counted toward the minimum number required for graduation. In order to be granted a degree, a student is required to have a minimum number of credit points equivalent to the number of credit hours required for graduation in his curriculum. In other words, he must obtain an overall average of "C" or 1.00. a— Standing for any period of time is the result obtained by dividing the number of credit points received by the student by the number of credit hours for which we was registered. b— Transfer credits and points are not included in scholastic averages. 4. Eligibility. No student who fails to maintain a scholastic standing of "C" or 1.00 is eligible to participate in athletics or to hold an elective office in non- athletic activities. A students scholastic standing is computed at the micl-semester and at the close of each semester. 5. Dean's List. A student who, at the end of a semester, has a high scholastic standing will be placed on the Dean's list. This list will be posted on the official bulletin boards. 19 6. Degrees with Distinction. With highest distinction With high distinction With distinction 7. Attendance Regulations. Daily attendance records are to be kept by the instructor in charge of each lecture or laboratory class. For each semester, a student is allowed three (3) credit-hour absences from each lecture or laboratory class. One (1) lecture hour is equivalent to one (1) credit hour; two (2) laboratory hours is equivalent to one (1) credit hour; that is, a student is allowed to absent himself from three (3) lecture hours or six (6) laboratory hours in any one course for each semester. Any student exceeding three (3) credit hours absences from any one class (lecture or laboratory) will be reported to the Dean of Students. Any credit hour absence immediately preceding or succeeding a holiday will be equivalent to two (2) credit hour absences. All instances of unreasonable tardiness will also be re- ported to the Dean of Students. 20 COURSES OF STUDY Degree Courses— 4 Years 1. Mechanical Engineering 2. Electrical Engineering 3.

That is, yarn and fabric development and production converting, selling, testing, research, etc. Many years of experience in the field of textile education have resulted in a systematically arranged course of study. In order that the student will thoroughly understand and intelligently apply the principles in- volved in modern manufacture of fabrics from both natural and man made fibres, he will, in the first two years, pursue these courses of study which are basic to all engineering, i.e., mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering drawing, English composition, etc. In the interim he is gradually introduced to the more elementary phases of fabric construc- tion. He is thoroughly instructed in both the theoretical and practical phases of picking, carding, drawing and fabrication. This work begins with elementary stages in the first year and continues through four years to the most advanced stages. Designing and cloth analysis are introduced during the second year and the scope is gradually broadened through the third and fourth years. The blending of natural and man-made fibres of cotton, wool, worsted, rayons, etc., is considered. During the fourth year the student studies the processing of rayons, nylon, vinyon and other continuous filaments. The student must complete other courses of study necessary for one who would compete successfully in the textile field. Among these are thorough courses in textile dyeing, merchandising, economics, applied electricity, machine tool laboratory practice and modern industrial plant < onstruction. The Manufacturing and Knitting Options comprise programs of study specially arranged for the student's choice of a major course in weaving 01 knitting phases, respectively. The Engineering Option has been designed in compliance with the scientific advances relative to the met hods and procedures in textile manufacturing and its curriculum offers a broader basic: engineering foundation than do the Manufactur- ing or Knitting Options. 25 Department of Textiles 26 BACHELOR OF SCIENCE Major — Textile Engineering, Manufacturing Option FRESHMAN YEAR I iOU RS Hours Xo.

Spectacular advancements in textile technology and engineering dur- ing the past decade point up a paramount need for a co-ordination of the special techniques of fabric and garment designers. The styling, designing, and development of fabrics and textures now require an extensive technical knowledge on the part of those concerned with the artistic and functional elements of textile materials. This course of study has foundation design and drawing as the princi- pal subjects in the Freshman year. Other courses in the first year include lettering, fundamental textile subjects, U. S. History, English and Sociology. Courses in applied textile design, art history, drawing and painting, plus theory and practical studies of textile manufacturing, dyeing and finishing comprise the major part of the second, third and fourth years. Courses in dress design, pattern drafting and fashion illustration are given in the Junior and Senior years. Academic subjects (required for a degree) are included throughout the curriculum. Other than in the Freshman year, projects are required whereby the student creates and executes his own original designs, in both fabric and apparel.
