LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE.

•EBANON 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 culture of her 
children. After much deliberation and prayer, it was resolved 
that an institution of learning be established, which would 
furnish the advantages of a thorough education alike to young 
men and women, under the safe and inspiring influences of the 
Christian religion. 

To carry out this purpose, a committee of worthy gentlemen 
was chosen, with authority to elect a suitable place for its es- 
tablishment. 

THE TOWN OF ANNVILLE, 

located in the midst of the beautiful Lebanon Valley, was 
chosen, on account of its accessibility, healthfulness and in- 
spiring 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 1866 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. 



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 educa- 
tion, and toward this original purpose the Institution will ad- 
vance as rapidly as the necessary means are secured and circum- 
stances 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 appreciation of time, money or 
opportunities, the Institution regards itself morally bound to 
make known the facts to its patrons, but not until every worthy 
method has been employed 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 entire absence 
of College barbarities and excesses, as well as the manifesta- 
tion 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 and the encouragements to a thor- 
ough education are offered alike to all. And experience has 
shown that there is no appreciable difference between the male 
and the female, as such, as to ability in mastering the studies 
of a College Course. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 5 

NON-SECTARIAN. 

While the College is denominational in management, it is 
positively free from sectarian bias ; and the liberal patronage 
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 inculcate the principles of 
Christian Morality without traducing the religious convictions 
or personal belief of anyone. 

AGGRESSIVE IN SPIRIT. 

The Institution is not bound in theory or practice to anti- 
quated methods, but it seeks to interpret the laws of science 
and of life in keeping with the spirit of progress, and the lead- 
ings of Providence. 

GUARANTY. 

Fidelity to these principles in the past is the guaranty that the 
Institution offers to its patrons in the future.

GRADUATES FROM HIGH SCHOOLS. 

Persons having been graduated from regularly graded or

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 con- 
template 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 de- 
gree, 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 symmet- 
rical as the time will admit. It is intended to furnish the 
necessary discipline and instruction for a practical education. 
A diploma will be awarded to those who complete this course. 

THE MUSICAL COURSE, 

in addition to the regular studies of the subject, requires a gen- 
erous knowledge of such branches as are best suited to a musi- 
cal education.

MENTAL AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY. 



Mental and Moral Sciences. In the Senior year of the 
Classical and Scientific courses, students are admitted to the 
study of Psychology and Ethics. These subjects are taught by 
means of text-books and interlocutory methods, and it is ex- 
pected that those who pursue them will attain a fair knowledge 
of the history and present status of these sciences. 

Seventeen weeks are devoted to the study of Psychology, and 
eleven weeks to the study of Ethics, with five recitations in 
each, per week. 

Apologetics. Analogy of Religion and Evidences of Chris- 
tianity are studied in the Senior and Junior years, twelve weeks 
being devoted to each. Written theses are required, setting 
forth, briefly, the arguments of the authors' and students' views 
concerning them. In the study of these subjects, there are ex- 
ercises in the review of authors and their criticism. 

Philosophy. This subject is taught with reference to origin 
and development of pure philosophical inquiry ; and to a com- 
parison of the various systems, both "Ancient" and "Modern." 

Social Science. Political Economy opens to the student 
the subject of individual and national well-being, and treats 
scientifically the living questions, Production, Distribution and 
Consumption. 

Seventeen weeks are devoted to this subject during the Sopho- 
more year, and it is expected that intelligent views will be 
reached as to the theories of Tariff. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 33 

LATIN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



In this department the design is to give thorough instruction 
in the language and literature of the Romans. The authors 
whose writings are studied are Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Livy, 
Horace, Quintilian, Tacitus, Terence and Juvenal. In the 
earlier stages, the learner's attention is especially directed to 
the mastery of inflections, to the elements of the words de- 
clined and conjugated, so as to obtain a perfect familiarity with 
the stems, signs and endings. As the study advances Syntax is 
taken up, and by constant reviews of the Grammar, the knowl- 
edge obtained is confirmed and enlarged. To acquire the 
ability to translate faithfully and elegantly is a leading object. 
Students are asked to show the construction of the text, explain 
the derivation of words and apply the principles of grammar. 
In connection with the reading of the poets particular attention 
is given to Prosody. 

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. From 
the beginning pupils are taught correct accent and quantity, 
and by careful practice are trained to read the Latin text with 
facility and grace. 

During the Winter Term lectures are delivered every week 
on the History of Roman Literature, before the class studying 
that subject, in which the early stages of its growth are traced, 
and the most prominent writers, from the time of Livius An- 
dronicus up to the patriotic era, are presented. Especially are 
the illustrious authors of the Augustine age and their works 
made the subjects of treatment. It is the aim in these lectures 
to give to the students of Latin Literature a comprehensive view 
of the subject, and to infuse a desire for the study of those lit- 
erary masterpieces which have so long maintained an honored 
place among the educated classes of all civilized lands. 



34 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

The following books of reference are recommended : White 
and Riddle's, or Leverett's Latin Lexicon, Roby's or Zumpt's 
Latin Grammar, Dcederlein's Latin Synonyms, Johnston's Clas- 
sical Atlas, Mommsen's History of Rome, Ellis' Quantitative 
Pronunciation of Latin, and Corsen's Ausprache Vocalismus 
und Betonung der Latinischen Sprache. 



GREEK LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



The subjects taught in this department are the Greek Lan- 
guage and Literature, the History of Greece, the History 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 ex- 
amined 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 language 
is acquired by means of the ' ' Modern method ' ' of teaching 
languages — by questions and answers in the original 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 Philology and Historical 
Etymology, in derivative words, tracing the transition from the 
primary meaning to secondary and figurative meanings, and 
observing the interchange of words through the cognate tongues. 

The Greek Testament is studied throughout the Sophomore 
year, one recitation per week. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 35 

Books of Reference. Anthon's Classical Dictionary, Allen- 
Hadley's Greek Grammar, Veitch's Greek Verbs, 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 Gram- 
mar, Grote's Plato, and Introduction to the Rythmic and 
Metric of the Classical Languages. 



MATHEMATICS. 



Geometry and Trigonometry. Geometry is a two-fold 
science, being demonstrative reasoning, and a system of prac- 
tical 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 com- 
mon affairs, and not with abstractions of the imagination. By 
frequent application of practical problems, the principles are 
fixed in the student's mind, and thought is developed ; indeed, 
practical applications are essential to a full apprehension of geo- 
metrical truths, otherwise the science becomes a mere discussion 
of abstract propositions. The work preceding the proportion- 
alities and measurement of polygons, circles, and solids is done 
in the Preparatory Year. There are exercises in original inves- 
tigation and application of Algebra to Geometry. 

One-half of Freshman year is devoted to Plane and Spherical 
Trigonometry. Students apply the principles to the measuring 
of heights and distances, and to Astronomy, 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 



36 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

taught, by the use of instruments and field practice, to be self- 
reliant and thorough. 

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, and Olney's Gen- 
eral Geometry. 



NATURAL SCIENCE. 



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

Students begin the study of Science with Elementary Natural 
History of Animals in the first year of the Preparatory 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, etc., of ox or sheep, and by the use of the microscope. 

Zoology, embracing the topics, Biology, Comparative Anat- 
omy, and Geographical Distribution of Animals, is begun in 
the latter part of the Fall term of the Freshman year, and ex- 
tends through the Winter term. 

Botany, structural and physiological, is studied by the use of 
text-book and microscopic specimens; Systematic Botany, by 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 37 

the analysis of specimens in the class-room and in the field. It 
is a Winter and Spring term study of the Freshman year. 

Natural Philosophy is studied by the Juniors during the 
entire year, devoting the Fall term to Mechanics and Hydro- 
statics; Winter and Spring term to Pneumatics and Physics. 

Chemistry. — Instruction in Theoretical and Descriptive 
Chemistry is given during the Fall term of the Senior year. A 
considerable t.ime will be given to lectures and laboratory work. 

Mineralogy and Geology are Studied by the Seniors dur- 
ing the Winter and Spring terms. A short course in Mineral- 
ogy precedes the study of Dynamical and Historical Geology. 

BOOKS OF REFERENCE. 

In connection with the study of text-books, students should 
read as much collateral matter as time will allow. The follow- 
ing 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 Physiology ; Packard's Zoolo- 
gy; Gray's Structural Botany; Plantl and Vine's Botany; 
Dana's Mechanics ; Atkinson Ganot's Physics or Deschanel's 
Natural Philosophy ; Cook's, The New Chemistry ; Wurtz's, 
The Atomic Theory ; Dana's Manual of Geology, Le Conte's 
Geology; Nicholson's Ancient Life History of the Earth. 



ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



In this department are taught English Grammar, Analysis, 
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 lan- 
guage, not only by the study of rules, but by careful study of 



38 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

the best literary models, and original composition. Higher 
Xessons in English afford opportunities to those desiring ad- 
vanced drill in the art of expression and composition. Rhet- 
oric, 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 necessity, 
somewhat cursory, but sufficient to create a taste for historical 
study. The history of our own country is studied during the 
Spring term. The Fall term of seventeen 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 curricu- 
lum. 

The ' ' History of 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 they are required to prepare either for oral or written de- 
livery before the class. 

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

The Science of Government, embracing a rapid yet com- 
plete view of our political system, is taught with reference es- 
pecially to the duties of good citizenship. 

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

English Literature, taught by both the manual and the 
works of 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 liter- 
ature bearing upon the subjects of this department, to some of 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 39 

which the student is referred almost daily, and in some instances 
required to examine for special information. 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 Lan- 
guage ; Townsend's Art of Speech, Vols. I and II ; Smith's 
Old and New Testament History; Whitney's Language and 
the Study of Language ; Whitney's Life and Growth of Lan- 
guage ; Stille's Studies in Mediseval History. 



MODERN LANGUAGES. 



Instruction is imparted in German and French by exercises 
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 following are recommended : 
Adler's German and English Dictionary, and Spier's and Su- 
renne'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. 



40 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

The stated time for completing the course may be lengthened 
or shortened, according 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 ex- 
pected to acquire a degree of proficiency on the Piano, suffi- 
cient to enable him to play his own accompaniments. 

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 conserva- 
tories of this country and Europe. Mendelssohn says: "It 
has advantages over private instruction ; 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 instruc- 
tion alone, as would the student of science without the advan- 
tage of the College or University." 

Students in piano are arranged in classes of two. Voice cul- 
ture pupils in classes of two or four. Harmony students 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 will take practice in ensemble playing. 

RECITATIONS. 

Classes in cultivation of the voice, piano-forte, organ, har- 
mony, and chorus practice receive two lessons a week. Stu- 
dents may enter at any time, but it is very desirable that they 
should begin with the term on account of grading, 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. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 41 

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. 



PREPARATORY YEAR. 



The study of the notes and the key-board ; position of body, 
arms and hands at the instrument ; instruction in touching the 
keys; simple finger exercises, aiming at correct execution of 
the five tones and their various inversions, with the different 
kinds of touch. The New England Conservatory Piano 
Method, No. i, is used, (foreign fingering, ) followed by studies 
of Loeschhorn, ops. 65 and 52, at the option of the teacher, in 
connection with op. 107, by Reinecke, Schumann's " Scenes 
from Childhood," and other pleasing pieces.

ART DEPARTMENT. 



This department is well supplied with studies from the best 
artists, new additions being made from time to time. Ample 
opportunities are afforded for obtaining instruction in Free-hand 
Drawing, both from casts and the flat, Modeling in Clay, Paint- 
ing in Oil, China and Water colors. It is intended to impart 
essential principles while training the eye and hand to accurate 
and successful practice. 

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 will find works of interest and assistance in the Col- 
lege Library. 



44 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



Imnl pjrmi&m. 



•EBANON VALLEY COLLEGE is located at Annville. 
This village is noted for its healthfulness and freedom 
from those temptations to vice so common to cities and 
large towns. It is accessible from all points, being located on 
the direct route of railroad travel from Harrisburg, via Read- 
ing, to Philadelphia or New York. Trains stopping at Ann- 
ville, leave Harrisburg and Reading seven times a day, Sunday 
excepted. 

BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS. 

There- are two commodious brick buildings, capable of ac- 
commodating a large number of students. The rooms are ar- 
ranged for two students each, are well-ventilated, contain 
clothes-presses and other conveniences. 

The most approved system of steam-heating has been intro- 
duced in the Ladies' Hall and the main College building. 

Fire escapes are also provided for all third-story rooms. 

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

The Ladies' Hall is entirely separate from the other prem- 
ises, and is under the immediate care of one of the lady teach- 
ers. Young ladies from abroad are furnished comfortable and 
pleasant homes, where they have every advantage for study and 
general improvement. Xon-resident students board in the In- 
stitution, where they are under the continual care of the Presi- 
dent and Professors.

FURNISHING AND OUTFIT. 

Students are required to furnish their own bedding, except 
the mattress, bolster and pillows. They should have their 
blankets, sheets, pillow-cases and clothing indelibly marked 
with their full name. 

SPENDING MONEY. 

Patrons are kindly but urgently reminded that students need 
very little pocket money. 

It should be remembered that luxurious habits and good 
scholarship seldom go together, and that the principles and 
practice of economy are essential to a good education. 

FOR ALL. 

It is desired that the facilities of the College be kept within 
the reach of all, and it is therefore urged that jewelry be left at 
home, and that in dress there be no vain display of wealth. 

All that is beyond a becoming neatness should be discarded 
by the student. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The object of the Institution is to afford a home, where pa- 
rents or guardians may place their sons, daughters, and wards, 
with safety 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 intellect- 
ual powers, 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 hab- 
itually guilty of immoral practices, or who is persistently disor- 
derly, can be tolerated in the institution. Every unexcused 
absence, failure, misdemeanor of a student is reported to the 
Faculty, and a record made of the same. 

The first three demerit marks will subject the student to pri- 
vate reproof; the first six to reproof before the Faculty; the

RELIGIOUS EXERCISES. 

Religious service is held in the College Chapel on the morn- 
ing of each day, and all students are required to attend. 

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 Fac- 
ulty, except those who on account of church membership, or 
wish of parent or guardian, may prefer to attend church else- 
where. 

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 meetings on Satur- 
day night of each week. The moral influence of this organi- 
zation is very salutary in the Institution. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are connected with the College three literary societies 
— the Clionian, the Philokosmian and the Kalozetean. The 
first is the ladies' society. Each has its proper hall and its own 
library. These societies are regarded as valuable aids to Col- 
lege work and students are advised to join one of them. 

PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

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 careful " 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 precaution is taken 
to foster health. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 49 

HELP FOR INDIGENT STUDENTS. 

The College has methods of assisting a limited number of 
worthy young men who have not the means of defraying 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 suffi- 
cient to help to an education those who could not otherwise 

obtain it? 

LIBRARIES AND CABINET. 

The College Library, to which all matriculated students have 
daily access without charge, contains more than two thousand 
volumes. The libraries of the literary societies also comprise 
a respectable number of well-selected and standard volumes. 
The libraries are constantly increasing by donations from friends 
and from the proceeds of a constantly accruing fund. 

The cabinet contains a collection of specimens in Mineralogy, 
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 conjunction 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 upon 
any student of the College who completes the studies of the 
Classical Course, and passes a satisfactory examination upon the

and passes a satisfactory examination upon the same.

character. Fee, five dollars. 

INQUIRIES CONCERNING DEPARTMENTS. 
Persons wishing more detailed information than is given in 
this Catalogue, as to Courses of Study, Methods of Instruction, 
Examinations, etc., may address the President or the Professor 
in charge of the department concerned. 

SCHEDULE. 

At the end of each term a Schedule of the College Exercises 
for the ensuing term is issued. Every student must take the 
equivalent of at least fifteen periods of recitation each week, 
unless excused by special action of the Faculty. 

NORMAL S. S. CLASS. 

A Normal Class for the Instruction of Sunday-school teachers 
is conducted on each Sabbath morning by one of the Professors. 
The Course of Instruction reaches over one year, and is the one 
provided for and used at the Chatauqua Assembly. A di- 
ploma issued by the Sunday-school Board of the United Breth- 
ren Church is granted to students who complete the course. 

LECTURE COURSE. 

A course of Popular Lectures will be delivered during the 
Fall and Winter Terms by some of the most noted lecturers in 
the field. The Hon. Daniel Dougherty, Dr. J. J. Villers, Hon. 
Wm. Parsons, Prof. George Little, Col. George Bain and Rev. 
M. P. Doyle, lectured during the present year. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS. 

Additions are being made from time to time of apparatus for 
philosophical and laboratory purposes as well as of specimens of 
scientific and historic interest. Many of these additions are 
the gifts of friends to whom the College makes grateful ac- 
knowledgement. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 5 I

specimens of any value, and in all cases the wishes of donors 
will be respected.

62 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



iEirtotorani. 



There are Christian men and women who could not devote 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 oppor- 
tunities 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 education, but who are so circumstanced 
that they cannot obtain it ? 

Those wishing to consecrate some of their means to such an end, are 
solicited to endow limited scholarships in Lebanon Valley College, to assist 
those who are deserving of help. These may vary in amount from S500 
to 52,ooo. They may also help to bring the opportunities of an education 
within the reach of those in limited circumstances by contributing to the 
endowment of the College.

the College may deem worthy of help as students, the principal of the
