LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



FOUNDING OF THE INSTITUTION. 

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 Pennsyl- 
vania, Maryland, and Virginia, to make special provision for 
the moral and intellectual culture of her children. After 
much deliberation and prayer, it was resolved that an institu- 
tion of learning be established, which would furnish the ad- 
vantages of a thorough education alike to young men and 
women, under the safe and inspiring influence of the Christian 
religion. 

To carry out this purpose, a committee of worthy gentlemen 
was chosen with authority to select a suitable place for its 
establishment. 

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 Insti- 
tution was founded, and in 1867 chartered by a Special Act of 
the Legislature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 



Of the Trustees and Faculty, from the first, has been to pro- 
vide courses of study which will qualify students to be practi- 
cal and self-reliant, as well as learned. 

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 



0^^l<^ 



4 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

instruction in all 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 cir- 
cumstances will demand. 

OFFICERS OF THE CORPORATION. 

The members composing the Board of Trustees are elected 
by the cooperating conferences, 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 cx-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 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 and the encouragements to a thorough 
education are offered alike to all. Experience has shown that 
there is no appreciable difference between the man and the 
woman, as such, as to ability in mastering the studies of a 
college course. 

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 ot 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 5 

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 any one. 

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.

COURSES OF STUDY. 

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 all whose-

as aspire to the ripest scholarship or purely literary pursuits.. 
Those who satisfactorily finish this course are graduated with, 
the degree of 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 of 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. 
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 
general knowledge of such branches as are best suited to a: 
musical education.

two classes in English Grammar — one in Analysis, and one in 
Definitions and Parsing; also, classes in Reading, Drawing, 
Penmanship, Descriptive Geography, and a class in Book- 
keeping. 

NORMAL DEPARTMENT. 

It has been our custom for a number of years to provide a 
Normal Department for the instruction of teachers, or of those 
who intend to teach. Recently the department has been more 



126 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

fully organized, the course enlarged, the number of instructors 
increased, and the facilities improved. This department is 
open during the Spring Term only. 

COURSE OF INSTRUCTION. 

United States History (Anderson or Swinton); Physical 
Geography (Butler or Guyot); Political Geography (Butler); 
Civil Government (Young); English Grammar (Raub or 
Green); Higher English (Raub or Green); Reading (Appleton's

metic, A (Brooks' Normal); Written Arithmetic, B (Brooks' 
Normal); Mental Arithmetic, A and B (Brooks'); Algebra 
(Robinson's Elementary); Theory of Teaching (Raub or 
Baldwin); Beginner's Latin Book (Collar and Daniel). 

In addition to these the regular college work, including the 
Higher Mathematics, Sciences, etc., offers opportunities for 
advanced work. 

Lectures by prominent educators on various phases of the 
educational work will be provided, to add variety, interest and 
inspiration. 

DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC. 

, MUSIC COURSE, 

The course of instruction in either Piano or Voice will oc- 
cupy 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 de- 
vote their entire time to music, or take it in connection with 
other studies. 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, in 
case of others, will require three or four. 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 ot 
each term a written examination is required. A graduate in 
Voice is also expected to acquire a degree of proficiency on 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 2'] 

the Piano, sufficient to enable him to play his own accom- 
paniments. 

PRIVATE AND CLASS LESSONS. 

Private lessons will be given at extra cost, but the class sys- 
tem 'is strongly recommended. It is practiced in the best con- 
servatories of this country and Europe. Mendelssohn says : 
■" It has advantages over private instruction ; it produces in- 
dustry, spurs on to emulation and preserves against one-sided- 
ness 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 University." 

Students in Piano are arranged in classes of two. Pupils in 
Voice culture 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 les- 
sons, etc. 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, etc., can be obtained at reduced rates. 

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

ART DEPARTMENT. 

This department is well supplied with studies from the best 
artists, additions being made from time to time. Ample op- 



28 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

portunities are afforded for obtaining instruction in Free-hand 
Drawing, both from casts and the flat, Modeling in Clay, 
Painting from Copy or Still Life in Oil or Water Colors, and 
China Decoration. It is intended to impart essential princi- 
ples while training the eye and hand to accurate and success- 
ful 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 
College Library. 

POST-GRADUATE COURSES. 

Lebanon Valley College offers to its own graduates and 
those of other Colleges, seven courses for non-resident study, 
leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy: 

1. Course in Philosophy. 

2. Course in ^Esthetics, 
in Ethics, 
in Christian Evidences. 

5. Course in Political Science. 

6. Course in Pedagogics. 

7. Course in Science. 

The courses are organized and students are pursuing the 
studies. 

For further information regarding these courses and the 
terms attached, that may be desired, address the President of 
the College.

LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 39 



GENERAL INFORMATION. 

Lebanon Valley College is located at Annville. This village 
is noted for its healthfulness and freedom from those tempta- 
tions to vice so common to cities and large towns. It is acces- 
sible from all points, being located on the direct route of rail- 
road travel from Harrisburg, via Reading, to Philadelphia or 
New York. Trains stopping at Annville leave Harrisburg and 
Reading nine times a day, Sunday excepted. 

BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS. . ■ 

The Buildings, three in number, are situated on a fine cam- 
pus of about six acres, within easy access of the railroad, post- 
offtce, churches, etc. 

The main building is a large brick structure containing 
Chapel, Recitation Rooms, Society Halls, Reading Room and 
Gymnasium, besides a number of dormitories for students. 
These rooms are arranged for two students each, are well ven- 
tilated and provided with wardrobes. The building is heated 
throughout by steam. 

A second building contains the Library, Art Room, two 
Music Rooms, and the entire department of Natural Science 
with Laboratory and Museum. 

The Ladies' Hall is entirely separate from the other prem- 
ises, and is under the immediate care of the Preceptress. 
Young ladies from abroad are furnished a comfortable and 
pleasant home, where they have every advantage for study and 
general improvement. Non-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 



30 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

blankets, sheets, pillow-cases and clothing indelibly marked 
with 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. 

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 par- 
ents 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 
intellectual powers, and develop a high Christian character. 
The Government of the College is strict but parental, mak- 
ing its appeal to the student's own sense of honor, and no one 
habitually guilty of immoral practices, or who is persistently 
disorderly, will be tolerated in the Institution. Every unex- 
cused absence, failure, or 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 
private reproof ; the first six to reproof before the Faculty ; the 
first nine to reproof in public, with notice to parent or guar- 
dian ; and the first twelve to dismission from the College. 

The Faculty may, on evidence of reformation, restore a dis- 
missed student. 

STUDIES AND RECITATIONS. 

Students are required to pursue the studies of the classes to 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 3! 

which they are assigned, unless exempted for special 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 in perfection of Scholarship is lOO per centum. 
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 exami- 
nation, or to repeat the study with the next lower class. 

Parents having children in the College classes, and desiring 
their report and grades, may obtain them by applying to the 
Secretary of the Faculty. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

Regular examinations are held at the close of each term. 
The examinations are intended to be thorough, and serve to 
determine 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 ex- 
amination 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 gradua- 
tion. 

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 beginning or end of 
a term. 

PROMOTION. 

At the beginning of each term, the old classes are reorgan- 
ized and new ones formed. At or near the close of each 
academic year, the names of all the members of each class. 



32 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

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 unani- 
mous vote of the Faculty. 

RHETORICAL EXERCISES. 

All students upon entering the institution are assigned to 
rhetorical classes, which are met on Wednesday of each week 
by members of the Faculty for literary drill. These Rheto- 
ricals, together with the Literary Societies, afford sufficient op- 
portunities for exercise in Composition and Oratory. Advanced 
classes in the College are required to take part in public exer- 
cises two or three times a year. 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE. 

No student is allowed to be absent during the term without 
special permission. The absence of a student, for even a day, 
during his term-time, exerts on his progress a hurtful influ- 
ence, which is seldom fully appreciated by parents and guar- 
dians ; hence no apology, but that of sickness or unavoidable 
accident, is sufficient to excuse a student from regular attend- 
ance at recitations. 

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

Any one withdrawing from the Institution during term-time 
without giving due notice and having permission to do so, will 
be marked upon the records as having irregularly withdrawn. 

Any student prevented from attending class must present 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 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 
Faculty, except those who on account of church membership, 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 33 

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

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

CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATIONS. 

There are thrifty organizations of the Young Women's and 
the Young Men's Christian Associations in the College, which 
hold their meetings on Saturday night of each week. The 
moral influence of these organizations is very salutary in the 
institution. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are connected with the College three Literary Socie- 
ties — the Clionian, the Kalozetean, and the Philokosmian. 
The first is the ladies' society. Each has its proper hall and 
its own library. These societies are regarded as valuable aids 
to college 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, 

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 
sufficient to help to an education those who could not other- 
wise obtain it? 



34 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

LIBRARIES AND CABINETS. 

The College Library, to which all the students have daily 
access, contains over three thousand volumes. The libraries 
of the Literary Societies also contain sixteen hundred volumes 
of well-selected and standard books. The libraries are con- 
stantly increasing by donations from friends and from the pro- 
ceeds of a constantly accruing fund. 

The cabinet contains a collection of specimens in Miner- 
alogy, Geology, Zoology, 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

SCHEDULE. 

At the end of each term a Schedule of the Colleges Exer- 
cises for the ensuing term is issued. Every student must take 
the equivalent of at least fifteen periods of recitations each 
week, unless excused by special action of the Faculty. 

THE BIBLE NORMAL UNION. 

A Normal Class for the instruction of Sunday School Teach- 
ers is conducted on each Sabbath by one of the Professors. 
The course of instruction extends over one year, and is the 
one provided for and used by the Bible Normal Union. A 
diploma, issued by the Sunday School Board of the United 
Brethren 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. 

Lectures and entertainments by the following during the 
past year : 

Rev. Russell H. Conwell ; the Boston Ideal Banjo Club ; A. 
Miner Griswold ; Rev. G. M. Klepfer; Hon. John T. Miller; 
Rev. I. L. Kephart, D. D.; Rev. E. Light, and Prof. John W. 
Snoke, County Superintendent. 

In addition to these lectures, there were lectures by mem- 
bers of the Faculty. 

ANNOUNCEMENT AND SUGGESTIONS. 

From time to time additions are being made of apparatus 
for philosophical and laboratory purposes as well as of speci- 
mens of scientific and historic interest. Many of these addi- 
tions are the gifts of friends to whom the college makes grate- 
ful acknowledgment. 

The institution is prepared to suitably preserve and exhibit 
all specimens of any value, and in all cases the wishes of do- 
nors will be respected. 



^6 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

Specimens in Geology, Mineralogy, Botany and Zoology 
are especially solicited. 

Contributions to the College Library will also be highly ap- 
preciated, especially of old and rare books and manuscripts, 
which are liable to be lost if they are not deposited in the 
library of a permanent institution. 

Books, specimens and antique relics should be addressed to 
the librarian or Professor of the Natural Science Department, 
with the donor's name legibly signed.

The charges for room rent, heat, and furniture are made on the 
basis of two persons to each room. In case where a student rooms 
alone he will be charged 50 cents additional a week. Any student 
not boarding in the institution and occupying a room in the build- 
ing will be charged a reasonable rent for the same. 

Extra washing, plain pieces, 50 cents a dozen. White dresses, 
etc., extra. 

Each student will be held accountable for any damage he may 
cause to the college property. Students will be held individually re- 
sponsible for all damage done to their rooms, by whomsoever com- 
mitted. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 39 

Tuition and room rent are counted from the time of entering to 
the end of the term, and tuition from the first of the term for en- 
trance second or third week. 

We urge a comparison of these charges with those of other schools, 
believing that such a comparison will establish the fact that our rates 
are more moderate for the advantages afforded than can be found 
elsewhere. 

TERMS OF PAYMENT. 

All fees for diplomas and degrees must be paid thirty days before 
Commencement. 

One-half of all other bills in advance. Balance at the middle of 
the term. This rule will be invariably enforced. No student will 
be admitted to classes until all bills are satisfactorily settled with the 
Financial Secretary.

ENDOWMENT. 

There are Christian men and women who could not devote them- 
selves 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 whem 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 Col- 
lege, 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 education 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 dece^e, 

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-six, 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 may deem 
worthy of help as students, the principal of the scholarship to be 
under the direction and management of the Trustees of the College. 

FORM OF BEQUEST TO THE ENDOWMENT FUND. 

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-six, the same to be 
sacred as an endowment fund in said College, the interest only to be 

used for the payment of instructors in the department ; 

the principal of said bequest to be under the direction and manage- 
ment of the Trustees of the College.
