1. Applicants fo:' admission must furnish evidence of good moral 
character, and produce a certificate of honorable dismission from the 
Institution of which they last were members. 

2. No one will be admitted, who shall faif, without reasonaMerexcuse,, 
to report himself to some member of the Faculty within twenty-four 
hours after his arrival in Town. 

3. Candidates for admission to the Freshman Class, must sustain a 
creditable examination in the Common English Branches, Latin and 
Greek Grammars, Caesar, Virgil, Sallust or Cicero's Select Orations, the 
Greek Reader, and Davies' Elementary Algebra through Equations of 
the first degree, or what shall be equivalent thereto. The requirements 
for admission to the first year of the Scientific Course are the same as 
the above, excepting the Greek and Sailust or Cicero. For admission 
to advanced standing, candidates must sustain an examination on all 
the studies previously pursued by the class they propose to enter. 

4. No one will be admitted to the Freshman Class until he has- 
completed his fourteenth year, nor to advanced standing, without a 
proportionate increase in age. 

5. Students are admitted to pursue an irregular course, when in the 
judgment of the Faculty it may be advisable. Such students, however, 
are required to take a sufficient number of studies to occupy their 
time profitably, and recite in such regular classes as they are qualified 
to enter. 

6. The attention of Parents, Teachers, and Candidates for admission 
is called to the fact that the courses of study are elevated, and that 
thorough preparation and a good degree of previous mental discipline 
is necessary, in order to pursue them with success.

THEOLOGICAL COURSE. 



To those who have completed a College course, or such literary 
studies as may have qualified them to'receive, it, instruction will be 
given in such a course of Theological studies as is usually pursued in 
Theological Seminaries, occupying three years. All others are expected 
to pursue either the Classical or Scientific coursejin preparation for the 
Theological, except that those whose circumstances demand it, are per- 
mitted to pursue a shorter course in Theology, as follows : 

1. Ecclesiastical History. 

2. In Systematic Theology : 

1. Natural Religion ; 2, Evidences [of Revealed Religion; 3, The 



Trinity ; 4, The Purposes of God, Election, &c; 5, Moral Accountability, 
Natural and Moral Ability ; G, Man as a Sinner, The Fall, Depravity ; 
7, Salvation by Grace; The Covenant of Redemption; Atonement; 
Regeneration ; Justification by Faith ; Perseverance of the Saints ; 8, 
Resurrection ; Future Rewards and Punishment; 9, The Church ; Bap- 
tism, Communion, Officers and Discipline of the Church ; Preparation 
of Plans and Criticism of Sermons ; Pastoral Duties. 

All Theological students have throughout their course an exercise in 
the Preparation of Plans and Criticism of Sermons. 



BUILDINGS. 



Soon after the opening of the present session, on the night of Oct. 
15th, 1854, the College building was consumed by fire. The Chemical 
and Philosophical Apparatus, the Cabinet, the College, Society and 
other Libraries were totally destroyed. These losses were a severe 
blow to the interests of the Institution, but its exercises have, neverthe- 
less, been successfully continued and the classes have advanced regu- 
larly in their several courses of study. 

A prompt and generous movement on the part of the friends of the 
Institution, has not only repaired these injuries, but has already placed 
it upon a more firm and elevated fooling than that occupied previous 
to the disaster. A more eligible site was selected, and two large and 
commodious buildings at once put under contract. The principal or 
College building will contain, in addition to a large Chapel, an Appa- 
ratus Hall, Laboratory, Library and Cabinet Hall, two large Society 
Halls, Offices, &c. The Dormitory building will contain recitation 
rooms and twenty-two large and commodious lodging rooms. The 
latter is already building, and is to be ready foi the accommodation of 
students by the opening of the ensuing session. These buildings are to 
be of a very superior class, and will furnish conveniences and facilities 
far beyond those possessed by the Institution heretofore. 

So soon as the wants of the Institution may demand, it is confidently 
expected that a second Dormitory building, similar to the first, will at 
once be erected. 



APPARATUS AND CABINET. 



Efforts have been successfully made to procure a fund for replacing 
the Chemical and Philosophical Apparatus and Cabinet. There are 
now in the hands of the Treasurer, cash and guarantees to an amount 
above $3,000, and it is confidently expected that this sum will be in- 
creased to $5,000. The Professor in charge of this department will 
shortly visit the northern cities for the purpose of selecting personally, 
an extensive Apparatus especially suited to our need. In all cases, in- 
struments and appliances of the first class, will be purchased, and such 
as cannot be obtained in this country will be imported from Europe. 
The Laboratory will be fitted up with all modem conveniences, and 
put in a condition for analytic investigation and for the pursuit of 
other branches of original research. The Cabinet has already received 
some valuable contributions, and a suite of specimens will be purchased. 

There is then, no doubt that the Institution will possess facilities in 
this department much superior to those of past years. 

As it is highly important that the geological features and mineral 
resources of our own State should be fully illustrated, further contribu- 
tions of minerals and fossils are solicited of all friends of the Institution. 



LODGING ROOMS. 



1. Rooms can be obtained, in connection with board, in good fami- 
lies. Students desiring to room in College, are allowed their choice of 
rooms, on application to the President. 

2. Students are permitted to room only in College, or in private 
houses and must not change their rooms except by permission. 



MERIT ROLL. 



A dailv record is kept of each student's punctuality and the charac- 
ter of his recitations, a summary of which is sent to the parent or 
guardian at the close of each month. 



THE SUB-FRESHMAN CLASS. 



This class is made up of those who are preparing to enter upon the 
Classical or Scientific course. Attention is invited to the fact that they 
enjoy the instruction of the Professors and Tutors in College, and that 
their studies are directed with special reference to the course upon 
which they propose to enter. 



PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT. 



Pupils are received into this Department at any stage of advance- 
ment, and the following Text-books are used, viz : 

Weld's English Grammar ; — Mitchell's Geography ; — Thompson's 
Arithmetic; Davies 1 Algebra ; Willard's History of the United States ; 
Ruschenbuiger's Series of " Firsi Books in Natural History"; Andrews 
and Stoddard's Latin Grammar ; Arnold's First and Second Latin 
Books; Andrew's Latin Reader; Anthon's Cresar, Sallust and Virgil ; 
Crosby's Greek Grammar; Anthon's Greek Reader ; Greek Testament. 



TERMS AND EXAMINATION. 



1. The Collegiate Year contains one session of nine months, which 
is divided into two terms. The first term begins on the first day of 
October, and the second on the fifteenth of February. 

2. There is but one vacation, which embraces the months of July, 
August and September. 

3. There are two examinations a year — one at Chiistraas, the other 
at the expiration of the session in June — when every student is required 
to undergo a thorough examination on the studies of the preceding 
term, and perform such other exercises as the Faculty may assign. 

A committee is appointed annually by the Alabama Baptist State 
Convention to attend upon the examination iu June. 



COMMENCEMENT AND DEGREES. 



1. The Annual Commencent is held on the last Thursday in June. 

2. No student is admitted to a Degree, or any part in the Com- 
mencement Exercises, unless he has creditably sustained all his exami- 
nations, and performed such othei exercises as may have been assigned 
hi in ; nor until all College dues have been settled, and he has paid the 
Treasurer $5 as a graduation fee. 

3. Students who have completed the Scientific Course, receive, on 
the same conditions, the degree of Bachelor of Sciences.

tion and room rent are free. 

Students are forbidden to contract debts in the town of Marion, ex- 
cept under the express permission of Paients or Guardians. To aid in 
enforcing this important regulation Parents and Guardians are earn- 
estly requested not to pay such debts.
