ACCELERATED PROGRAM 



In accordance with the wishes of the War Department, Lebanon 
Valley College, along with other colleges and universities throughout 
the country, has accelerated its program of studies. The purpose of this 
academic speed-up is, on the one hand, to enable young men to com- 
plete their college education before being called to military service, and, 
on the other, to enable those who have already been accepted by the 
Army or Navy for the Enlisted Reserve Corps to complete their educa- 
tion in the shortest possible time. 

The accelerated program has been accomplished, not by the elim- 
ination of standard courses, but by lengthening the summer sessions 
and increasing the Evening School and Extension classes. It is now 
possible for students in regular attendance at the College to complete 
the work required for the baccalaureate degree in three years instead 
of the traditional four. Extension students may, by taking advantage 
of the increased number of evening classes offered during both the win- 
ter and the summer, materially shorten the time hitherto required for 
attainment of the bachelor's degree. 

If you wish to learn how the accelerated program may be adapted 
to your individual needs, write to Dr. M. L. Stokes, Director of Ex- 
tension and Summer School, Lebanon Valley College.
