LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



i|^ ^[tttttthing of % |n$Hlnitcin. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE came into existence 
to supply an absolute want. Denominational growth 
and an advancing civilization rendered it necessary for the 
Church of " The United Brethren in Christ," throughout 
the States of Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Virginias, 
to make special provision for the moral and intellectual cul- 
ture of her children. After much deliberation and prayer, 
it was resolved that an institution of learning be estab- 
lished, which would furnish the advantages of a thorough 
education alike to young men and women, under- the safe 
and inspiring iniluences of the Christian religion. 

To carry out this purpose, a committee of worthy gentle- 
men was chosen, with authority to elect a suitable place 
for its establishment. 

THE TOWN OF ANNVILLB, 

located in the midst of the beautiful Lebanon Valley, was 
chosen, on account of its accessibility, healthfulness, and 
inspiring scenery. 

As a further inducement to locate the College at this 
place, a suitable building and grounds were donated by 
public-spirited citizens for educational purposes. In 18(')7, 
the Institution was founded and chartered by a special Act 
of the Legislature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

THE AIM 

of the Trustees and Faculty, from the first, has been to 
provide courses of study which will qualify students to be 
practical and self-reliant, as well as learned. 



/6f^«S 



4 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

The Charter plainly indicates, that it was the intention 
of the founders to plant an Institution which would become 
so ample in facilities and manifold in departments as to 
furnish instruction in all of the subjects of a general and 
special education, and toward this original purpose the In- 
stitution will advance as rapidly as the necessary means 
are secured and circumstances will demand it. 

OFFICERS OF THE CORPORATION. 

The Board of Trustees consists of thirty members, one- 
third of whom are elected annually for a term of three 
years. 

The members of the Faculty, and two persons chosen by 
the Alumni from their own number, sustain an ex-officio 
relation. 

FIDELITY TO PATRONS. 

The members of the Faculty believe that all pupils 
should be encouraged to educate as thoroughly as their 
means and native endowment will admit, even when there 
is promise of only moderate success ; but when a student 
persists in a course of indifference and manifests no appre- 
ciation of time, money or opportunities, the Institution re- 
gards itself morally bound to make known the facts to its 
patrons, but not until every worthy method has been em- 
ployed for his reformation. 

CO-EDUCATION. 

The principle of co-education of the sexes was adopted 
from the first by the founders of the College — and the en- 
tire absence of College barbarities and excesses, as well as 
the manifestation of a tendency to a higher standard of 
scholarship, from year to year, proves the wisdom of this 
natural order of things. The facilities of the College — 
the courses of study — and the encouragements to a thor- 
ough education are offered alike to all. And experience 
has shown that there is no appreciable difference between 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 5 

the male and the female, as such, as to ability in mastering 
the studies of a College Course. 

NON-SECTARIAN IN SPIRIT. 

While the College is denominational in management, it 
is positively free from sectarian bias ; and the liberal pat- 
ronage which it has enjoyed from homes representing all 
phases of Protestant faith, as well as from the homes of 
non-professors, attests the fact that Colleges may be truly 
Christian without being strictly sectarian.

Stitir$]^$ uf ^luit^. 



The College offers four courses of study — the Classical, 
the Scientific, the Academical, and the Musical. 

THE CLASSICAL COURSE 

is the most thorough, and should be elected by those who 
contemplate entering the " Learned Professions," and by 
such as aspire to the ripest scholarship or purely literary 
pursuits. Those who satisfactorily finish this course are 
graduated with the degree — Bachelor of Arts. 

THE SCIENTIFIC COURSE 

requires' but one ancient language — either the Greek or the 
Latin ; otherwise it is the same as the Classical Course. 
It leads to the degree, Bachelor of Science. 

THE ACADEMICAL COURSE 

extends over three Collegiate years, and is as full and sym- 
metrical as the time will admit. It is intended to furnish 
the necessary discipline and instruction for a practical 
education, and prepare students, in part, at least, for par- 
ticular callings in life — such as Civil Engineering, and 
professional teaching in the Public Schools. A diploma 
will be awarded to those who contemplate this course. 

THE MUSICAL COURSE, 

in addition to the regular studies of the subject, requires 
a generous knowledge of such branches as are best suited 
to a musical education.

MENTAL AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY. 

Mental and Moral Soiknokh. In the Senior y(!ai- of the 
ClasBical and Scientific courses, students are admitted to 
the study of Psychology and Ethics. These subjects are 
taught by means of t(;xt-books and int<!rlocutory metliods, 
and it is expected that those wlio pursue them will attain n 
fair knowledge of the history and present status of these 
sciences. 

Seventeen weeks are devoted totlu; study of J^sychology, 
and eleven weeks to the study of Ethics, with five recita- 
tions in each, per w(!ek. 

Ai'OLOOKTifJS. Analogy of licligion ii,nd Evidences of

LATIN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



In tills department the design is to i;ive tliorou<2,h in- 
struction in the Ijinguage and literature of the; ilomans. 
The authors whose writings are studied, are Ca'snr, Cicero, 
Virgil, Livy, Horace, C^uintilian, l^vcitus, Terence and Ju- 
venal. In the earlier stages, the learner's attention is 
especially directed to the mastery of intlections, to the ele- 
nuMits of the words declined and conjugated, so as to 
olitain a perfect faniiliarity with the stems, signs, and 
iMidiiigs. As the study advances Syntax is taken up, 
Mild by constant reviews of the Grammar, the knowledge 
obtained is conlirined and enlargcid. To ac(piire the ability 
to translate faithfully and elegantly is a leading objec^t. 
Students are asked to show the construction of th(! text, 
explain the derivation of woi'ds and ajjply the princiiiles 
of grainniar. In connection with the reading of the poc^ts 
particular attention is given to I'rosody. 

Latin (Composition is studied with care. After the text- 
book is completed there are regular exercises in writing 
Latin essays. 

The Continental method of pronunciation is used. Prom 
the beginning luipils are taught correct (^/rcr»/a,nd (/uantily^ 
and by careful practice are trained to read the Ijatiu text 
with facility and grace. 

During the Winter Term lectures ar(! delivered (svery 
week, on the History of Roman Literature, before the class 
studying thai subject, in which the early stages of its 
growth are traced, and the most prominent writers, I'rom 
the time of Livius Andronicus u[) to the [)atri()tic era, are 
piHisented. Especially are the illustrious authors of the 
Augustine age and their works nia<l(! tlic siibjectis of treat" 
nuiiit. It is the aim in tluise l(Mdiir(!S to give t<j the; stu- 
dents of Latin Literature a comprehensive view of the 



34 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

subject, and to infuse a desire for the study of those liter- 
ary masterpieces which have so long maintained an hon- 
ored place among the educated classes of all civilized lands. 
The following books of reference are recommended : 
White and Riddle's, or Leverett's Latin Lexicon, Roby's 
or Zumpt's Latin Grammar, Doederlein's Latin Synonyms, 
Johnston's Classical Atlas, Mommsen's History of Rome, 
Ellis' Quantitative Pronunciation of Latin, and Corssen's 
Ausprache Vocalismus und Betonuug der Latinischen 
Sprache. 



GREEK LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



The subjects taught in this department are the Greek 
Language and Literature, the History of Greece, the His- 
tory of Greek Literature, Antiquities and Comparative 
Philology. 

In the Preparatory Classes the student is thoroughly 
drilled in the inflections of the language, and words are 
carefully examined with reference to the application of the 
laws of euphonic change and rules of construction. 

Written and oral translations, from Greek into English 
and from English into Greek, are given throughout the 
first two years. In all of these exercises strict attention 
is paid to the grammatical principles involved, and the 
laws of accent are carefully applied. 

A greater familiarity with the idioms and spirit of the lan- 
guage is acquired by means of the " Modern method " of 
teaching languages — by questions and answers in the origi- 
nal tongue. 

In the higher classes, special attention is given to the 
style, spirit, and subject matter of the author. With these 
recitations are connected exercises in Comparative Phil- 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 35 

ology and Historical Etymology, in derivative words, 
tracing the transition from the primary meaning to second- 
ary and figurative meanings, and observing the interchange 
of words thi'ough the cognate tongues. 

The Greek Testament is studied throughout the Sopho- 
more year, one recitation per weelv. 

Books op Reference. Anthon's Classical Dictionary, 
Iladley's Greek Grammar, Yeitch's Greek Yerbs, Kuhner's 
Greek Grammar, Mahaffey's Greek Literature, Symond's 
Greek Poets, Papillion's Comparative Philology, Grote's 
History of Greece, Goodwin's Greek Moods and Tenses, 
Homeric Grammar, Grote's Plato, and Introduction to the 
Rhythmic and Metric of the Classical Languages. 



MATHEMATICS. 

Geometry and Trigonometry. Geometry is a two-fold 
science, being demonstrative reasoning, and a system of 
practical truths. In the study of this science we seek to 
bring out the meaning and practical utility of the abstract 
propositions, and seek to enable the student to feel that he 
deals with common affairs, and not with abstractions of the 
imagination. By frequent application of practical prob- 
lems, the principles are fixed in the student's mind, and 
thought is developed ; indeed practical applications are 
essential to a full apprehension of geometrical truths, oth- 
erwise the science becomes a mere discussion of abstract 
propositions. The worlc preceding the proportionalities 
and measurement of polygons, circles, and solids is done 
in the Preparatory year. There are exercises in original in- 
vestigation and application of Algelu'a to Geometry. 

One-half of Freshman year is devoted to Plane and 
Spherical Trigonometry. Students apply the principles to 



36 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

the measuring of heights and distances, and to Astrono- 
my, as a part of class exercise. 

Calculus and Surveying. The study of Calculus is 
taught during the Sophomore year, and is required of all 
students. 

Surveying occupies the Spring term of the Sophomore 
year. Instruction is given in practical surveying, and the 
student is taught to be self-reliant and thorough by use of 
instruments in field-practice, &c. 

Astronomy. Astronomy occupies seventeen weeks of 
Senior year. The instruction is both by use of text-book 
and lectures which embrace, the latest discoveries and re- 
searches. In some respects the instruction is mathemati- 
cal, as the students are required to find the periodic time 
and mass of planets, sun's rising and setting and begin- 
ning, and duration of twilight, eclipses, &c. 

Students will have some practice with an Acromatic 
Telescape. They will be required, as a part of class work, 
to make observations of the Sun, Planets, Clusters of 
Stars, &c. 

Books of Reference. Peck's Mathematical Dictionary, 
Gauss' Theory of Numbers, Todhunter's General Theory of 
Equations, Salmon's Modern Higher Algebra, Newcomb's 
or Wentworth's Geometry and Trigonometry, Olney's 
General Geometry, Chauvenet's Spherical Astronomy, and 
Loomis's Practical Astronomy. 



NATURAL SCIENCE. 



The College does not propose to make specialists in any 
of the departments of Science ; 3 et, the design is to teach 
thoroughly, and as minutely as time will permit, all the 
subjects embraced in this Department. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 3t 

Students begin the study of Science with Elementaiy 
Natural History of Animals in the first year of the Pre- 
paratory Course, and finish with Geology in the last term 
of the Senior year. 

Geography of the Heavens and Physical Geography to- 
gether cover the Fall and Winter terms of the Preparatory 
— first year ; the studies being so arranged as to give the 
most favorable season for the study of the constellations 
and heavenly bodies. 

Physiology, including Anatomy and Hygiene, is studied 
by Freshmen. The study of Anatomy will be aided, as far 
as practicable, by dissection of important organs, such as 
heart, eye, &c., of ox or sheep, and by the use of the 
microscope. Text Book — Cutter. 

Zoology, embracing the topics, Biology, Comparative 
Anatomy, and Geographical Distribution of Animals, is 
begun in the latter part of the Fall term of the Freshman 
year, and extends through the Winter term. 

Botany, structural and phj^siological, is studied by the 
use of text book and microscopic specimens ; Systematic 
Botany, by the analysis of specimens in the class-room and 
in the field. It is a Spring term study of the Freshman 
year. Text Book — Gray. 

Natural Philosophy is studied by the Juniors during 
the entire year, devoting the Fall term to Mechanics and 
Hydrostatics ; Winter and Spring terms to Pneumatics 
and Physics. Text Book — SnelVs Olmsted^s. 

Chemistry. — Instruction in Theoretical and Descriptive 
Chemistry is given during the Fall term of the Senior 3^ear. 
A considerable time will be given to lectures and labora- 
tory work. 

Mineralogy and Geology are studied by the Seniors 
during the Winter and Spring terms. A short course in 
Mineralogy precedes the study of Dynamical and Histori- 
cal Geology. Text Book — Dana. 



38 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

BOOKS OF REFERENCE. 

In connection with the study of text books, students 
should read as much collateral matter as time will allow. 
The following books will be found valuable as furnishing 
fuller treatment of subjects than it is possible to give in 
text books : Huxley's Physiology or Dalton's Human 
Physiolog}^ ; Packard's Zoology; Gray's Structural Bot- 
anj^; Plantl and Vine's Botany; Dana's Mechanics; Atkin- 
son's Granot's Physics or Deschanel's Natural Philosophy; 
Cook's The New Chemistry; Wurtz's The Atomic Theory; 
Dana's Manual of Greolog^^, Le Conte's Geology ; Nich- 
olson's Ancient Life History of the Earth. 



ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



In this department are taught English Grammar, Analy- 
sis, Higher English, General History, Bible History, Logic, 
Science of Government, Rhetoric, History of Civilization, 
Elements of Criticism, and English Literature. 

We seek to bring to view the structure and uses of the 
language, not only by the study of rules, but by careful 
study of the best literary models, and original composition. 
Higher Lessons in English afford opportunities to those 
desiring advanced drill in the art of expression and compo- 
sition. Rhetoric, a subject pursued by the Juniors, also 
supplements this drill by a much more systematic study of 
the forms of Prose, Poetry and Style. 

The view taken of the history of the world is, from ne- 
cessity, somewhat cursory, but sufficient to create a taste 
for historical stud3^ The history of our own countrj^ is 
studied during the Spring term. The fall term of seven- 
teen weeks is given to the study of Bible History, which 
all are required to study with the same care that they do 
the other branches of the curriculum. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 39 

The " History op Civilization " is taught from text 
books, but is supplemented by a series of dissertations, the 
subjects of which are assigned students at the beginning 
of the term, and which tliey are required to prepare either 
for oral or written delivery before the class. 

Logic is studied by the Juniors. Special attention is 
given the forms of correct argument and fallacy. 

The Science of Government, embracing a rapid, yet 
complete view of our political system, is taught with ref- 
rence especially to the duties of good citizenship. 

Elements of Criticism, as related to the beautiful in na- 
ture and art, and a knowledge of the principles of good 
taste, is studied in the Senior year. 

English Literature, taught by both manual and the 
works of the standard authors, is made one of the most 
interesting and important branches of this department. 
Our constant aim is to awaken new interest in the study of 
our own language and literature, and, whatever the study, 
the student may feel that his training in English is not 
neglected. 

BOOKS OF REFERENCE. 

The College Library is well supplied with histories and 
literature bearing upon the subjects of this department, 
to some of which the student is referred almost daily, and 
in some instances required to examine for special informa- 
tion. The Library is our great ally and aid in instruction. 
For special reference, the following are recommended : 
Welsh's Development of the English Literature and 
Language ; Townsend's Art of Speech, Vols. I and II ; 
Smith's Old and New Testament History ; Whitney's Lan- 
guage and the Study of Language; Whitney's Life and 
Growth of Language; Stille's Studies in Mediaeval History. 



40 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



MODERN LANGUAGES. 



Instruction is imparted in German and French by exer- 
cises in translation, by conversational practice and by 
writing. It is the aim in this department, so to master these 
languages, that they may become of practical value. In 
addition to the text books named in the course, the follow- 
ing are recommended : Adler's German and English Dic- 
tionary, and Spier's and Surenne's French Pronouncing 
Dictionary. 



DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC. 



MUSIC COURSE. 

The course of instruction in either Piano or Voice will 
occupy three years. A Preparatory year is also required 
of those who expect to enter upon the regular course, and 
are not already familiar with the rudiments of music. 
Pupils may devote their entire time to music, or take it in 
connection with other studies. The stated time for com- 
pleting the course may be lengthened or shortened, ac- 
cording to the advancement of the pupil. Some pupils 
will accomplish in two years what would take others three 
or four years to complete. A knowledge of the Elements 
of Harmony will be required, or one year's study, in order 
to graduate in either Piano or Voice. At the close of each 
term a written examination is made. A graduate in Voice 
is also expected to acquire a degree of proficiency on the 
Piano, sufficient to enable him to play his own accompani- 
ments. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 41 

PRIVATE AND CLASS LESSONS. 

Private lessons will be given at extra cost, but the class 
system is strongly recommended. It is practiced in the 
best conservatories of this country and Europe. Men- 
delssohn says : " It has advantages over private instruc- 
tion ; it produces industry, spurs on to emulation, and 
preserves against one-sidedness of education and taste." 
" The student of music will as surely fail of a complete 
musical education, by taking private instruction alone, as 
would the student of science without the advantage of the 
College or Universit}^" 

Students in piano are arranged in classes of two. Voice 
culture pupils in classes of two or four. Harmony stu- 
dents in classes of four or six. 

Elements of music, sight-singing and part-singing classes 
free to all music pupils. Public recitals are given by the 
music pupils every two months. 

Pupils wiirtake practice in ensemble playing. 

RECITATIONS. 

Classes in cultivation of the voice, piano-forte, organ, 
harmon}^, and chorus practice receive two lessons a iveek. 
Students may enter at any time, but it is very desirable 
that they should begin with the term on account of grad- 
ing, time of lessons, &c. A careful examination is made 
by the teacher in charge, regarding the proficiency of all 
new pupils, that they may be properly classified in the 
course. 

Sheet music, books, &c., can be obtained at reduced rates. 

Those who complete the required course of study in 
either Piano or Voice are awarded a diploma. Diplomas 
will be conferred only at the Annual Commencement.

44 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

Special advantages in this department are afforded by a sys- 
tem of giving daily lessons, which is not customary in 
schools not especially devoted to Art. Students in Art 
will find works of interest on this subject in the College 
Library, and are required to study " Samson's Criticism," 
and "Dwight's Studies." 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 45 



iititr^} Infunmtlititt. 



T EBANON VALLEY COLLEGE is located at Ami- 
J-^ ville. This village is noted for its healthfulness and free- 
dom from those temptations to vice so common to cities 
and large towns. It is accessible from all points, being lo- 
cated on the direct route of railroad travel from Harris- 
burg, via Reading^ to Philadelphia or New York. Trains 
stopping at Annville, leave Harrisburg and Reading 
seven times a day, Sunday excepted. 

BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS. 

There are two large brick buildings, capable of accom- 
modating a large number of students. TJie rooms are 
arranged for two students each, are well ventilated, contain 
clothes-presses, and other conveniences. 

There has recently been erected a third building, con- 
taining the Library, a large and well-lighted Art-Room, two 
Music Rooms, the entire Department of Natural Science, 
with its Laboratory and Museum. There is also a fine 
campus of about six acres. 

The Ladies' Hall is entirely separate from the other 
premises, and is under the immediate care of one of the 
lady teachers. Young ladies from abroad are furnished 
comfortable and pleasant homes, where they have every 
advantage for study and general improvement. Non-resi- 
dent students board in the Institution, where they are un- 
der the continual care of the President and Professors. 

FURNISHING AND OUTFIT. 

Students are required to furnish their own bedding, ex- 
cept the mattress, bolster and pillows. The}- should have 



46 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

their bLankets, sheets, pillow-cases and clothing indelibly 
marked with their full names. 

Parents and guardians are advised that the student 
needs very little pocket money. In many cases it is safer 
that his funds be entrusted to an officer of the Institution, 
whose discretion may regulate his expenditures. 

DISCIPLINE 

The object of the Institution is to afford a home, where 
parents or guardians maj^ place their sons, daughters, and 
wards, with safet}^ and profit, and where young men and 
young women may be fitted for usefulness under influences 
calculated to refine their tastes, ennoble their aspirations, 
discipline their intellectual powei's, and develop a high 
Christian character. The Government of the College is 
STRICT, but PARENTAL, making its appeal to the student's 
own sense of honor, but no one habitually guilty of im- 
moral practices, or who is persistently disorderly, can lie 
tolerated in the institution. Every unexcused absence, 
failure, misdemeanor of a student is reported to the Facul- 
ty, and a record made of the same. 

The first three demerit marks will subject the student to 
private reproof; the first six to reproof before the Faculty ; 
the first nine to reproof in public, with notice to parent or 
guardian ; and the first twelve to dismission from the Col- 
lege. 

The Faculty may, on evidence of reformation, restore a 
dismissed student. 

MATRICULATION. 

Matriculation is regarded a pledge on the part of the 
student that he will obey all of the rules of the College. 

STUDIES AND RECITATION 

Students are required to pursue the studies of the classes 
to which they are assigned, unless exempted for special 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 41 

reasons. No student is permitted to take a study to 
which he has not been assigned, nor to discontinue a study 
without permission obtained from the Faculty. 

GRADING. 

Students are graded on their work in the Recitation 
Room. The standard of perfection in scholarship is 100. 
The student's standing is determined by the average of his 
term and examination grades. A grade of less than 65 
per centum will compel the student to submit to a second 
examination, or to repeat the study with the next lower 
class. 

Parents having children in the College classes, and de- 
siring their report and grades, may obtain them by apply- 
ing to the Secretary of the Faculty. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

Regular examinations are held at the middle and close 
of each term. The examinations are intended to be thor- 
ough, and have an influence in determining the standing of 
the student. 

In all cases,when from any cause, a student has failed to 
be present at the regular examination, he shall undergo an 
examination before being permitted again to recite in the 
classes of the College. 

The final examinations of the Seniors are held two weeks 
before Commencement, from which time they are subject 
only to such duties as are required for their preparation for 
graduation. 

Candidates for class standing, other than those who have 
regularly pursued their studies at the College, or, who 
bring certificates of class standing in other institutions, 
are required to pass special examinations, either at the be- 
ginning or end of a term. Examination fee, five dollars. 

PROMOTION. 

At the beginning of each term, the old classes are re-or- 
ganized and new ones formed. At or near the close of each 



48 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

academic year, the names of all the members of each class 
separately, come before the Faculty for promotion, and 
those of the Senior Class for graduation, and no- student is 
promoted to a higher class, or to graduation, except upon 
the unanimous vote of the Facult}^. 

RHETORICAL EXERCISE. 

All students upon entering the Institution are assigned 
to rhetorical classes, which are met on Wednesda}' of each 
week b}' members of the Facult}' for literary drill. These 
Rhetoricals. together with the Literary Societies, afford 
sufficient opportunities for exercise in Composition and Or- 
atory. Advanced classes in the College are required to 
take part in public exercises two or three times a year. 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE 

'Mo student is allowed to be absent during the term with- 
out special permission. The absence of a student, for even a 
day, during his term-time, exerts on his progress an evil in- 
fluence, which is seldom full}- appreciated by parents and 
guardians ; hence no apology, but that of sickness or ima- 
voidable accident, is sufficient to excuse a student from a 
regular attendance at recitation. 

No student, during the term, is expected to quit the In- 
stitution without the consent of the President and Faculty. 

Any student prevented from attending class must pre- 
sent to the Professor in charge a written excuse for being 
absent. 

RELIGIOUS EXERCISES. 

Religious service is held in the College Chapel on the 
morning of each day, and all students are required to at- 
tend. 

Students from abroad, who are residents of the College, 
are also required to attend public worship on the Sabbath 
in the United Brethren Church, unless otherwise directed 
by the Faculty, except those who on account of church 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 49 

membership, or wish of parent or guardian, may prefer to 
attend church elsewhere. 

A students* prayer meeting, to which all are invited, is 
held on each Tuesday evening. 

Y. M. C. A. 

There is a thrifty organization of the Young Men's 
Christian Association in the College which holds its meet- 
ings on Saturday night of each week. The moral influence 
of this organization is very salutary in the Institution. 

LrrERARY SOCrETTES. 

There are connected with the College three literary 
societies — the PHTLOKOSinAN, the Kaeozetean. and the 
Clion"ian. The last is the ladies' society. Each has its 
proper hall and its own library. These societies are re- 
garded as valuable aids to college work, and students are 
advised to join one of them. 

PHYSICAL. CULTTTRE. 

A well equipped gymnasium is in operation in the main 
College building, to which all students have access at 
stated times by the payment of a small fee. A carefal 
•' Director "* has oversight of these exercises to guard 
against accidents and immoderation. 

In addition to the physical discipline of the gymnasium, 
the students are required to take regular exercise in the 
open air when the weather will admit of it, and every pre- 
caution is taken to foster health. 

HIGHER EDUCATION OF "WOMEN. 

The principle of co-education of the sexes was adopted 
from the first by the founders of the College — and the ab- 
sence of College barbarities and excesses, as well as tne 
tendency to a higher standard of scholarship, from year to 
year, prove the wisdom of this natural order of things. 



50 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

The facilities of the College — the course of study — and the 
encouragements to a thorough education are offered alike 
to all. And experience has shown that there is no appreci- 
able difference between the male and the female, as such, as 
to ability in mastering the studies of a college course. 

HELP FOR INDIGENT STUDENTS. 

The College has methods of assisting a limited number 
of worthy young men who have not the means of defray- 
ing their own expenses, and yet scores apply from year to 
year, both of ladies and gentlemen, whom we have not the 
means to help. May not the statement of this fact be a 
sufficient appeal to lead many to endow scholarships, the 
income of which will be sufficient to help to an education 
those who could not otherwise obtain it ? 

LIBRARIES AND CABINET. 

The College Library, to which all the students have 
daily access without charge, contains more than two thou- 
sand volumes. The libraries of the literar}^ societies also 
comprise a respectable number of well-selected and stan- 
dard volumes. The libraries are constantly increasing by 
donations from friends and from the proceeds of a con- 
stantly accruing fund. 

The cabinet contains a collection of specimens in Mine- 
ralogy, Geology and Natural History. 

READING ROOM. 

There is in the College a well-stocked Reading Room 
which is daily accessible to the students and in connection 
with it a Natural History Club which operates in conjunc- 
tion with the corresponding department of the institution. 

A small fee is charged for Reading Room privileges. 

DEGREES. 

Bachelor of Arts. — This degree is conferred in course

A Normal Class for the Instruction of Sunday School 
Teachers is conducted on each Sabbath morning b}^ one of 
the Professors. The Course of Instruction reaches over

Chatauqua Assembly. A diploma issued by the Sunday- 
school Board of the United Brethren Church is granted to 
students who complete the course.

Jnhrruintjsnl. 



There are Christian men and women, who could not de- 
vote themselves to the pursuits of knowledge, for want of 
means ; throughout their life they have felt that they might 
have been more useful and happy, had the opportunities of 
securing an education been afforded them. Will not these 
men and women become the benefactors of those worthy 
young people, many of whom now are thirsting for an edu- 
cation, but who are so circumstanced that the}' cannot ob- 
tain it ? 

Those wishing to consecrate some of their means to such 
an end, are solicited to endow limited scholarships in Leb- 
anon Yalley College, to assist those who are deserving of 
help. These may vary in amount from $500 to $2,000. 
They may also help to bring the opportunities of an edu- 
cation within the reach of those in limited circumstances 
by contributing to the endowment of the College. 

FORM OF SCHOLARSHIP BEQUEST. 

I bequeath to my executors the sum of dollars, 

in trust, to pay over the same in months after 

my decease, to the person who, when the same is payable, 
shall act as Treasurer of Lebanon Valley' College, founded 
at Annville, Pennsylvania, in the year one thousand eight 
hundred and sixty-seven, as a scholarship fund, the interest 
of which only is to be loaned without charge to such pious 
young people as the Faculty of the College ma^" deem 
worthy of help as students, the principal of the scholarship 
to be under the direction and management of the Trustees 
of the College.
