Scriptures, and Systematic and Historic Theology for the Classic

III. The Ladies' Course. — Eequires one year less time than the 
Classical Course, and substitutes French and Biological Science for 
Greek and some of the Higher Mathematics. 

IV. The Scientific Course. — Requires one year less time than the 
Classical Course, and substitutes French, German and Biological 
Science for Greek and Latin. 

V. The Teachers' Course. — Requires about two years study, and 
includes all the branches required for the State Certificate. 

VI. The Commercial Course. — Requires two years study, and com-

16 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



Requirements for Admission. 

All candidates for admission to any course must be of suitable age, 
and must present satisfactory evidence of good moral character. 

The qualifications necessary for admission to any of the College 
Courses is a fair knowledge of the common branches, and the Latin 
and Greek Grammars, except that a knowledge of Latin is not re- 
quired for entrance upon the Biblical or Scientific Course, or of 
Greek for the Ladies' or Scientific Course. 

Candidates for advanced standing must pass a satisfactory exami- 
nation upon the studies pursued by the class which they propose en- 
tering, or in their equivalents. 

Candidates properly prepared in some studies for admission to a 
higher class, but deficient in others, will be permitted to make up 
their requisitions by regular recitations in the lower classes. This 
requirement is essential to proper progress in the higher studies. 

tjjgir No vicious, idle, or disobedient student xoill he retained in the 
Institution, nor will such be knowingly received. 

Students will not be permitted to leave the School before the end 
of the Term for which they enter. 

Entering Lebanon Valley College as a Student, will be regarded as 
a pledge to observe all its Laws and Regulations. 

The Best Mode of Preparation. 

The success of a student in the higher classes depends upon the 
thoroughness of his preparation. Many young men, of limited means, 
attempt to prepare themselves for the higher classes by private study. 
Although praiseworthy, this is a radical mistake, as thorough instruc- 
tion is more needed in the elementary than in the higher branches, and 
the facilities provided here will enable students to accomplish more 
with an ultimate economy of time and money. The drill of the first 
two or three years of the Course is all-important, and students should, 
by all means, spend these years in College. Such, however, as find it 
convenient to prepare themselves for any of the higher classes should 
follow closely the plan of study laid down in this Catalogue, and not 
anticipate studies which may be pursued with more advantage here.

REMARKS. 

This course is arranged especially for teachers, and requires fifty-five 
weeks' attendance at the College. Including books, it will cost about 
three hundred dollars, most of which can be earned, in the meantime, 
by the ten or twelve months' teaching. The normal schools require an 
attendance of eighty-four weeks to complete a course less thorough. 
Any young gentleman or young lady, with proper energy and applica- 
tion, can thus acquire a good English education, and, at the same time, 
will be fitted for a useful position in society.

SPECIAL COMMERCIAL COURSE. 



One of the Chain of Bryant, Stratton 8f Co.'s Com- 
mercial Colleges, located in the United 
States and the Canadas. 

Having purchased the good-will and fixtures of Bryant, Stratton & 
Francisco's Business College, lately located at Harrisburg, the same 
will be consolidated with this institution, and will be reopened with 
increased facilities on the third (3d) day of August next. 

We design making this department first-class in all respects, and 
while we offer superior facilities for a practical education, we aim to 
attain higher results. Punctuality, reliability and regularity are 
qualities essential to every business man ; hence, to induce proper 
habits, students are required to conform to wholesome regulations. 

This institution is located at Annville, twenty-one miles east of 
Harrisburg, on the Lebanon Valley (P. & B.) Bailroad. Six trains 
stop daily. The location is beautiful and very healthy. It is free 
from the demoralizing influences and excitements of larger places, and 
hence is more favorable to mental and moral improvement. 

The department is arranged for carrying out all the minutiae of trade 
in its most complicated forms, and is extensively and elegantly fur- 
nished. It has a Writing Department, Notary Public's Office, Steam- 
boat Office, Telegraph Office, Express Office, Mining Office, Railroad 
Office, Stationery Store, Grain Emporium, Stock Exchange, Post 
Office, Notion Store, National Bank, Merchandise Emporium, Iron 
and Agricultural Department, Jobbing and Importing Office, Whole- 
sale and Retail Grocery Store, Forwarding and Commission Office, 
Real Estate Agencies, Sfc. These are all separate offices, fitted up 
with finely-carved counters and desks, with glass fronts, money-drawers, 
with checks, notes, books, and every thing complete, so that students 
make actual transactions, using representative merchandise and money, 
thus obtaining a practical knowledge of business. 

There are special advantages connected with this school. Students 
deficient in the common branches, or wishing to pursue any of the 
higher ones, will have the opportunity of doing so at the moderate 
expense of one dollar and twenty-five cents ($1.25) per month for each 
study. 

The cost of boarding, &c, is less than it can be in cities, and, as 
students board and room in the institution, they are guarded against 
those things which ruin the prospects and health of so many young 
men.
