^ LEL^jXD HNIYER^ITY. 

This Institution was originated and is carried on for the purpose 

of promoting Christian education among the people of Louisiana 

and a(ijacent States.. It aims to prepare ministers for the work 

of preaching the Gospel, to fit teachers for their important field 

of usefulness, and to qualify men for business, thus seeking to 

advance religion, sound morality, intelligence, and prosperit}' 
V . i 



among- classes 



yccorcing to the provisions of its charter, no person is ever to 
Cy^ excluded from its privileges on account of race, color or 
"Previous condition. 

The Cniversity owes its existence to the wise forethought and 
broad generosity of the late Holbrook Chamberlain and his 
estimable wife. It was incorporated in 1870, and the first steps 
in erecting the building were taken the same year. The school 
was opened in 1874; has been in successful operation for ten 
years. The success thus far attained, the patronage enjoN'ed, and 
the liberal encouragement of its friends, at home and abroad, 
warrant the Faculty and Board of Managers in aiming at grander 
results, and in sparing no pains to make the training at Leland 
University second to that of no similar institution. 

LOCATION AND BUILDINGS. 

The University is located on St. Charles Avenue, corner of 
Chestnut Street, and oi)posite the exposition park. No more 
beautiful or healthful location could be found in New Orleans, 
while its retirement from the crowded part of the city renders it 
peculiarly suited to study. Tlie main building is of brick, one 
hundred by eighty feet, three stories above the basement. 

Here are the chapel, recitation rooms, library, oflftces, and 
rooms for the president, professors and male students, besides 
accommodations in the basement for boarding, industrial shops, 
etc. The Girls' dormitory will be ready for occupanc}' October 
1st. It is also of brick, three stories, one hundred by fifty feet. 
Here are the rooms of the lady teachers, the preceptress, and 
the young lady puj)ils ; also music rooms, boarding, laundry, 
and industrial rooms for the girls. The grounds comprise four 
entire squares, or ten acres, furnishing ample op})ortunity for 
horticultural training under the supervision of the College 
farmer.

Ministry, and whose character and abilities justify their choice 
of this high calling.

course of stud)- in this Department, and upon a satisfactory ex- 
amination, receive the Degree of Bachelor of Divinity, 

Students who have not received a College education will be

^FECIAL f 0UF^3E FOR |^A3T0F(S. 

Recognizing the fact that pastors in charge of churches cannot 
be abtient from their duties during the entire school session, 
though earnestly desiring to observe the injunction of St. Paul 
" Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman needing 
,not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth," a con" 
demed course has been arranged for their especial benefit, con- 
tinuing two months, from November Ist to December 24th. Beside 
the regular instruction from the professors of this department, 
a course of lectures by distinguished Divines will be given. 
Pastors and Licensed Preachers are affectionately urged to avail them- 
selves of this opportunity.

Industrial Departnent, 

In order to develop latent talent,*and to prepare the student 
to enter life as a self-respecting citizen, able to help himself and 
others, this Department has been arranged. The University 
grounds furnish abundant opportunity for training in agriculture 
and horticulture. A school of Carpentry with a competent in- 
structor will be opened at the begining of next session. A shoe 
shop is already in successful operation. A skilful gardener and 
carpenter are already employed, and other trades and indus- 
trial arts will be added during the year, with the assistance 
granted by the " Slater Fund." 

Young ladies will receive instruction in the arts of housekeep- 
ing, sewing, dress-making, milinery, etc.

every student is required to labor one hour per day, under the

grounds.

Students desiring to pay n part of their expenses by aditional 
labor on the College farm or in the shops, will have opportunity 
to do go. 

It is hoped that the hearty spirit of cooperation already man- 
ifested in the prosecution of this Department, will prompt phi- 
lanthropic friends to furnish the shops and supply a generous 
beneficiary fund to help those students who thus prove their wil- 
lingness to help themselves. 

Reviews, constant and thorough, and strict examinations at 
the close of each term, oral or written, at the discretion of the 
Faculty, to test the diligence and ability of the pupil. Students, 
to retain their class standing, must pass satisfactory examina- 
tions. ^ 

The daily sessions of the school are opened with prayer and 
singing, and study of the Bible, in which all the scholars par- 
ticipate. 

Meetings for Bible study are held every evening. Prayer meet- 
ing of the Young Men's Christian Association on Friday evening. 
There is a Sunday School held in the Chapel every Sunday p. m. ; 
also a Preaching Service at 7 p.m. Students are also permitted 
to attend the Churches in the vicinity of the University, for the 
purpose of performing Christian labor in connection therewith. 
This is done under the direction of the Faculty, and is the means 
of good, both to the students and to the Churches, Aimless 
wandoring about on Sunday is not permitted. 

The Faculty, with their families and the Christian students, 
compose a regularly organized Bapti^^t Church, holding meetings, 
observing the ordinances, and maintaining discipline as a Church 
of Christ. The President is acting Pastor. Beside the spiritual 
berjcfits resulting from this organization, tlie members derive 
instruction in church methods and work. Students are requested 
to bring church letters with them and unite with the College 
Church during their course.

The library is not large, thou.^h a good beginning has been 
made in gathering one. Donations of books are solicited. 
Benevolent friends will confer ji lasting benefit on the school by 
placing money in the hands of the teachers, to expend on books 
for the library. In the reading room may be found a number of 
papers furnished us by well-wishers of the school. An increase 
of such matter would be gratefuljy welcomed. 

The Leland Lyceum, for elocutionary and literary practice, 
meets every Friday. 

The Young Men's Christian Association holds regular weekly 
meetings, for prayer and the encouragement of Christian 
endeavor. 

The Temple of Honor holds regular meetings in the interests 
of temperance. 

The Alumni Association holds its annual meeting Commence- 
ment Week. 

SaTerrLULsnt. 

It is the constant aim of the officers of the school to induce 
those under thpir charge to govern themselves in accordance with 
the principles of advanced civilization and religion. Those who 
will not yield to wholesome restraint are not allowed to remain 
in the school. There are regular hours for study, during which 
students are required to be in their rooms. All students from 
abroad are required to room in the University Building, (except 
by permission of the President) where they will be under the 
immediate care of the Faculty. The President desires to call the 
special attention of patrons and guardians to this requirement, 
as experience proves that the progress of the student is thereby 
greatly facilitated. The young ladies are under the special care 
of an experienced and judicious preceptress. Parents may rest 
assured that every effort will be put forth to seoure their 
daughters in the greatest safety, both by kind and faithful in. 
struction, and b^ vigilant watchfulness against evil. 

By the wise and kindly forethought of the Woman's Baptist 
Home Mission Society, a discreet Christian woman is stationed 
at the University, to have the culture and oversight of the pupils

physically, morally and socially ; and to give practical training 
in Mission Labors. 

AdmissiDn. 

Students of good moral character are received at anytitne, and 
upon examination will be assigned to their appropriate classes; 
hnt the iinportrnicf of promjii attendance at the beginning of terms 
cannot he too ntrongJy vrged. Without prompt attendance the 
classes cannot bo properly formed, and much time is lost. 
Those who fail to take their places in their classes at the begin- 
ning of the year, fall behind, and drop into lower classes, to their 
own damage and dissatisfaction, and to the inconvenience of 
students and instructors. 

Courses of study cannot be successfull}' prosecuted and com- 
pleted except by those wlio hold their places in their classes 
from year to year. --^ 

Candidates for admission coming from other institutions must 
present certificates of honorable dismission. Ministers and Li- 
centiates are not required to pass examination for Theological 
Department, but must bring testimonials. 

.Students may, at any time, after one month, receive honorable 
dismission, provided that their bills are paid, and there is no 
reason connected with the government of the University for re- 
fusing it. Those leaving during the session without satisfactory 
reason will be regarded as suspended. 

{jeneral Rsgulatians. 

All bills due the University are payable monthly in advance. 

Boarding students are required to attend regularly the religious 
meetings of the University. 

Students must take care of their own rooms and keep them 
clean and neat, under direction of the matron. 

All students are required to do their part, and take their turn 
in the care of the public rooms and University grounds and out- 
buildings, and to cultivate a spirit of cheerful helpfulness. 

Rooms are furnished with bedstead, mattress, pillows and 
quilts, chairs, table, washstand, bowl and ])itcher, and mirror. 

Students should provide themselves with sheets and pillow-

cates from their Churches, and give evidence of their fitness for 
the sacred office. 

The expenses for washing and books are not included in the 
above figures. Books can be obtained at the Universitv at lowest 



prices. 



ipEf^EpiCIARY ^ID. 



Young men and young women whose abilities and character 
give promise of special usefulness, and whose circumstances 
render it necessary, will be furnished with help in so far as 
resources shall justify, to enable them to remain in school. In 
order to receive this assistance a student must commend himself 
to the Faculty by diligence and progress in his studies, by free- 
dom from bad habits, and by the manifestation of a good con- 
science, and a worthy Christian character.

CAUTION. 

Those coming to the Institution are advised to have nothing 
to do with hackmen or express drivers, as they will charge exor- 
bitant prices for services. If your baggage is too heavy to bring 
yourself, leave it on the boat or at the baggage room, then inquire 
of a policeman the way to Baronne Street, and there take a green 
car for Carrollton, which, for ten cents, will leave you at the gate 
of the school. The cars will bring a small trunk for a slight 
additional sum. Advice will be given at the school about getting 
heavy baggage up.
