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 Virginia, to make special provi- sion for the moral and intellectual culture of her children. After much deliberation and prayer, it was resolved that an in- stitution of learning be established, which would furnish the advantages 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 inspir- ing scenery. As a further inducement to locate the College at this place, suitable building and grounds were donated by public-spirited citizens for educational purposes. In 1866 the Institution was founded, and in 1867 chartered by a Special Act of the Legis- lature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Aim Of the Trustees and Faculty, from the first, has been to pro- vide courses of study which will qualify students to be practical 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 instruc- tion in all the subjects of a general and special education, and toward this original purpose the Institution will advance as rapidly as the necessary means are secured and circumstances will demand. Officers of the Corporation. The members composing the Board of Trustees are elected by the Annual Conferences cooperating in the enterprise, one- 4 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. third of whom are elected annually for a term of three years. The members of the Faculty 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 mod- erate success ; but when a student persists in a course of indif- ference and manifests no appreciation of time, money or oppor- tunities, 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 encouragement 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 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 any one. Aggressive in Spirit. The Institution is not bound in theory pr 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. LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. The Corporation. Trustees. Term Expires 1900. RKV.

Candidates coming from other institutions are required to furnish a certificate of regular dismissal. LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 9 No one will be admitted later than the beginning of the Senior year. Candidates for advanced standing will be examined in the studies of the Preparatory Course, and also in those previously pursued by the class which they propose entering, or their real equivalents. Matriculation. Matriculation is regarded as a pledge on the part of the stu- dent that he will obey all the rules of the College. A fee of one dollar each year is required of every one who enters the College, on the payment of which a certificate will be given, entitling the holder to the privileges of the Library. Courses of Study. The College offers four courses of study — the Classical, the Scientific, the Preparatory and the Musical. The Classical Course Is the most thorough, and should be elected by all whose op- portunities will afford it, and especially by such 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 Preparatory Course Is full and symmetrical, and is intended to furnish the neces- sary discipline and instruction for a practical education, or for admission to the Freshman class of the College. 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. See page 27. IO LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE.

The required course extends through the Preparatory, Fresh- man and Sophomore years, with five recitations a week. The discipline of the logical faculties is constantly sought in the study of pure mathematics, and students may acquire such a knowledge of mathematical principles as will give them abil- ity to solve practical problems and make original investigations. In surveying, considerable field work is done. The College is supplied with a full set of surveying instruments, including an excellent transit and leveling rod. The student is taught the use of these by actual practice. Advanced Analytic Geom- etry, Differential Equations and Analytic Mechanics are offered as electives in this department. Natural Science. The studies in this department occupy five recitations a week during the Freshman, Junior and Senior years. When- ever time and facilities permit, the student is required to study natural phenomena, and to make a record of his observations as a preparation for the study of the text. Careful observa- tion, clear thinking and accurate expression of thought are insisted upon throughout the course. Chemistry. The course in Chemistry requires six laboratory and two re- citation periods a week during the Fall term of the Senior year. The study of Remsen's Briefer Course is preceded by the use of Remsen's Laboratory Manual. In making the series of experiments each student records temporarily his observations, and after correction by the Pro- fessor he is required to make a careful, permanent record of his notes. A fee of five dollars is charged for the use of chemicals, and in order to insure care in the use of apparatus, each stu- dent must deposit one dollar at the beginning of the term. No student will be assigned a table and apparatus for working until all fees are paid. Elective courses are offered in Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis. LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. I 7 Art Department. This department is well supplied with studies from the best artists, additions being made from time to time. x\mple op- 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 principles while training the eye and hand to accurate and successful practice. Special advantages in this department are offered by a sys- tem of daily lessons, which is not customary in schools not especially devoted to art. 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 fully organized, the course enlarged, the number of instructors increased, and the facilities improved. This department is open during the Spring Term only. Instruction is imparted in all the branches named on the teacher's certificate. Post-Graduate Courses. Lebanon Valley College offers to its own graduates and those of other colleges, five courses for non-resident study, leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy: i, Philosophy; 2, Ethics; 3, Christian Evidences; 4, Political Science; 5, Peda- gogics. The courses are organized and the students are pursuing the studies. For further information regarding these courses, address the President of the College. LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 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 each eight times a day, Sunday excepted. Buildings and Grounds. The Buildings, three in number, are situated on a fine cam- pus of about ten acres, within easy access of the railroad sta- tion, postofnce, churches and the usual business houses. 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 by steam throughout. 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 other members of the Faculty. 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 full name. Spending Money. Patrons are kindly but tirgently reminded that students need very little pocket money. LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 19 It should be remembered that luxurious habits and good scholarship seldom go together, and that the principles and practices 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 calcu- lated to refine their tastes, ennoble their aspirations, discipline their intellectual powers, and develop a high Christian charac- ter. The government of the College is strict but parental, making its appeal to the student's own sense of honor, and no one habitually guilty of immoral practices, or who is persist- ently disorderly, will be tolerated in the Institution. Every unexcused absence, failure or misdemeanor of a student is re- ported 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 first nine to reproof in public, with notice to parent or guard- ian; and the first twelve to dismissal 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 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 100 per centum. 20 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 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 examina- tion or to repeat the study. Parents having children in the College classes, and desiring their report and grades, may obtain them by applying to the Secretary of the Faculty. Examination. 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 exami- nation before being permitted again to recite in the classes of the College. The final examinations of the Seniors are held two weeks be- fore Commencement, from which time they are subject to such duties only 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 beginning or end of a term. Promotion. At the beginning of each term, the old classes are re-organ- ized and new ones formed. At or near the close of each aca- demic 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 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 Rhetori- cals. together with the Literary Societies, afford sufficient LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 21 opportunities for exercise in Composition and Oratory. Ad- vanced classes in the College are required to take part in pub- lic exercises 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 influence, which is seldom fully appreciated by parents and guardians; hence no apology, but that of sickness or unavoidable accident, is sufficient to excuse a student from regular attendance at reci- tations. No student, during the term, is expected to quit the Institu- tion 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 with- drawn. Any student prevented from attending class must present to the Professor in charge a satisfactory excuse for being absent. 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 Faculty, 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. 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. 22 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. Literary Societies. There are connected with the College three Literary Societies — 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 Col- lege building, to which all students have access at stated times by the payment of a small fee. A careful Director has over- sight of these exercises to guard against accidents and immod- eration. 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. Libraries and Cabinet. The College Library, to which all the students have daily access, contains over four thousand volumes. The Libraries of the Literary Societies also contain over seventeen hundred volumes of well-selected and standard books. 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, 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 theTnstitution. A small fee is charged for Reading Room privileges. Degrees.

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 building 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 responsible for all damage done to their rooms, by whomsoever committed. 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 entrance sec- ond 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 Com- mencement. 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 admit- ted to classes until all bills are satisfactorily settled with the Financial Secretary. LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 27 Music Department. Faculty. E. BENJAMIN BIERMAN, A. M., Ph., D., President. CARRIE E. SMITH, Professor of Instrumental Music and Theory. WILLOUGHBY S. WILDE, L. L. C. M. Professor of Voice Ctclture and Harmony. ELLA NORA BLACK, B. S. Assistant. The courses of instruction in the Music Department, which are fully outlined on the following pages, have been arranged with a view to thoroughness and pleasurable progress, whereby the student is carried forward more rapidly than in many other educational institutions, and to a surer exercise of his own best powers. The most striking illustration of the success of this Department is found in the increase of the number of stu- dents from year to year. For all those intending professional careers special courses are arranged supplementary to those taken by less advanced pupils. Pupils may devote their entire time to music or take it in connection with other studies. Public recitals are given by the music pupils every two months. Pupils will take practice in ensemble playing. Students may enter at any time, but it is very desirable that the}' should begin with the term on account of grading, time of lessons, etc. Course in Voice Culture. To render the teaching in this Department as uniform as possible the method founded on Garcia, Behnke and Lamperti is adopted. It is also strongly advised that Voice pupils take a course in instrumeutal music to enable them to play accompaniments, etc. The course in voice culture is divided into three grades, and as the time necessary for attaining the requisite proficiency depends entirely upon the previous acquirements of the pupil and upon his talent and health promotion from one grade to the next will be made only after a satisfactory examination. 28 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. Preparatory Grade. Placing of the voice; breathing exercises; Behnke exercises according to the voice. Elements of Rhetoric. Second Grade. Behnke studies according to student's voice, study of and selections from Schubert, Schumann and others; also sacred songs in English and Latin. English and American literature, one year. Third Grade. Operatic selections in English and Italian, and study of oratorios. To secure Teachers' Certificate students must be able to play accom- paniments on the Piano, to read Vocal Music at sight and have studied Harmony one year, and pass a satisfactory examination. French or German, one year. Students to graduate must be able to read Vocal Music at sight, have studied Harmory and Theory, and pass a satisfactory examination. Course in Piano and Harmony. The aim in this department will be to give thorough instruction both in the technique and the aesthetics of the art; and to this end only stand- ard text-books and studies will be used. Students are received into any grade which, upon examination, they are found qualified to enter. Students are advanced according to their ability and proficiency and not according to the number of terms they spend at the College. The course for Instrumental music is divided into five grades, and as the time necessary for attaining the requisite proficiency depends en- tirely upon the previous acquirements of the student and upon his talent, promotion from one grade to the next will be made only after a satisfac- tory examination.
