THE Mount Gretna Summer School is an extension of
the work of Lebanon Valley College, authorized and
approved by the trustees of the college and directed
by the faculty. The sessions are held at Mount Gretna,
Pennsylvania, in the buildings of the Pennsylvania Chau-
tauqua Association. The environment, the social life of the
resort, the opportunities for healthful recreation, as well as for
quiet and effective study make this an ideal location for the
Summer School. The courses are planned primarily for the
following groups of men and women:
I. Those who wish to complete their college entrance re-
II. Those who desire to shorten the period of college resi-
dence or to make up deficiences.
III. Teachers of Elementary schools, high schools, and
normal schools who seek advanced instruction with or with-
out the idea of acquiring a degree.
IV. Other persons who desire collegiate instruction or
courses for general culture.
ADMISSION AND ATTENDANCE
There are no formal examinations for admission to the sum-
mer school. Students, both men and women, will be admitted
to such courses as the respective instructors find them qualified
to pursue with advantage.
In order that the work may proceed with dispatch upon the
opening of the term, it is urged that arrangements for registra-
tion be made by mail. Applications for admission and regis-
tration will be received by the Registrar up to and including
Friday, June 23; address, Annville, Pa.
On Saturday, June 24, Monday, June 26 and Tuesday,
June 27, registration will be continued in the C. L. S. C. Build-
ing, Chautauqua Grounds, Mount Gretna. The registration
hours will be from 1 P. M. to 4. P. M. Classes will be open to
6 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE
all on June 26 and 27, but after June 27 they will be restricted
to duly registered students.
Regular exercises will begin promptly on June 26. Notice of
any proposed addition or cancellation of courses must be re-
ported at once in person at the Office of the Registrar. Stu-
dents will be allowed, after securing the consent of the Direc-
tor, to make changes in their courses up to and including
Tuesday, June 27, but after June 27 they will be permitted
to make no changes whatever. Full credit will be given only
for those courses for which students have registered and paid
not later than June 27. Students registering June 28 to July
5th, inclusive, may receive half credit for the work done in
any course; but students entering after July 5th will receive
no academic credit. A student attending any course is re-
quired to do the full work assigned to the class; auditors are
not admitted. Absence from class exercises may be excused
only in case of illness.
Exercises will be held every day in every subject, but no
stated exercises will be held on Saturdays. Each course will
consist of thirty lectures or other exercises, or their equiva-
lent in laboratory or field work.
Students are allowed to take one or more courses as they
desire, although they are advised not to exceed six credits.
All courses are assigned a certain number of tuition points
and most courses have a credit value. A point is the credit
gained for a duly matriculated student upon the completion
of an hour weekly for one academic half year, or the equiva-
lent thereof, unless otherwise specified, and is designated a
semester hour credit. One hour of lecture or recitation, or
two hours of laboratory or field work daily during the summer
session will cover the requirements for two semester hours
towards the bachelor's degree.
BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS
The sessions are held at Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania, in
the buildings of the Pennsylvania Chautauqua Association,
situated on the grounds of the Association. These buildings,
especially designed for educational work, contain commo-
dious and well equipped class rooms and are located in the
MT. GRETNA SUMMER SCHOOL 7
heart of the resort. Adjoining the grounds of the Pennsylvania
Chautauqua Association are grounds of the Campmeeting
Association of the United Brethren in Christ. This resort of
nearly five hundred cottages, scattered among the trees and
shrubbery, accommodates a summer population of several
thousand people. To the west of the grounds of the Chau-
tauqua Association is the beautiful Lake Conewago which
offers splendid facilities for bathing and boating. This lake
is fed by pure mountain streams flowing from innumerable
springs of the finest water to be found. The grounds also ad-
join those of the military reservation of the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, where encampments, attended by thousands
of soldiers are held annually.
Mount Gretna is situated on the Lebanon Branch of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, eleven miles from Conewago where it
forms a junction with the main line. At Lebanon this railroad
joins the Philadelphia and Reading, so that Mount Gretna is
within commuting distance of Lebanon, Lancaster and Harris-
burg. It is, moreover, easily accessible from these points by
automobile, being located midway between the Lincoln High-
way and the William Penn Highway.
Mount Gretna is a paradise for the Naturalist or Biologist.
The opportunities for study of inland forms of life are un-
limited. An abundant variety of plant and animal associa-
8 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE
tions and varied ecological conditions are accessible. The
topography consists of mountains with a wide range of forest
trees and shrubs, deep ravines, with cold mountain streams,
carrying the pure spring water through densely vegetated
swamps out into richly cultivated meadowlands. Old fields,
once under cultivation and now reserved for military purposes,
supply unusual types of uncultivated forms of life. The lake
and ponds are rich in aquatic forms, some of which are very
rare. The flora is rich in fungae, mosses, ferns and flowering
plants. Over thirty species of ferns are found in the vicinity.
Over one hundred species of flowering plants have been iden-
tified by classes in a single day's tramp. An herbarium of
several hundred species may be collected in a season.
Birds and insects are abundant both in species and numbers
and in the summer season offer excellent opportunities for
the study of breeding habits and life histories.
All necessary equipment from the biological laboratories of
the college will be transferred to a laboratory which has been
provided in the Hall of Philosophy at Mount Gretna.
ENTERTAINMENTS AND LECTURES
During the Summer Term a number of entertainments will
be offered by the students of the school. Weekly lectures
will be given to the entire student body by different mem-
bers of the faculty.
THE BIBLE CONFERENCE
During the closing week of the Summer School the United
Brethren Bible Conference, directed by many of the most
noted Bible teachers of the day will be in session on the grounds
of the Campmeeting Association, to continue for a period of
THE FIRST ANNUAL SESSION
Although announcement of the Summer Session preceded
the opening of the school by only several weeks, the attend-
ance exceeded expectations and emphasized the need of the
work offered. The session was not only successful from the
standpoint of the number of students but from the character
of the students, their loyalty and cooperation, and the ex-
cellent quality of the work accomplished. The school is
particularly indebted to the Pennsylvania Chautauqua As-
MT. GRETNA SUMMER SCHOOL 9
sociation through whose earnest and devoted cooperation its
work was made possible. The complete educational equip-
ment of the Association is generously placed at the disposal
of the school.
THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Numerous demands from public school teachers striving to
meet the higher educational standards required of them by
recent legislation, and the appeal from the State Department
of Public Instruction for the school to shape its curriculum
to meet these requirements, have resulted in the organization
of a separate department of the school which, following
directly these suggestions, will be devoted entirely to the in-
terests of teachers.
Enrollments for the Summer Session of 1922 indicate a
large increase in the number of students over the Session of
1921. Accommodations will be arranged by the school for those
who request that this be done and register at a date early
enough to make this possible.
A number of desirable rooms have been offered for students
by the cottagers. Since the student body must be limited in
accordance with accommodations and educational facilities, it
will be to the advantage of the student to register as soon as
possible in order to be assured of enrollment at the opening
of the school.
The private beach of the Pennsylvania Chautauqua Asso-
ciation adjoins the grounds of the Summer School and is
open to the students. This is an ideal resort for bathing,
boating and canoeing and is visited each afternoon by a con-
siderable portion of the student body. The refined nature of
the amusements of the resort commend them to the student
seeking healthful recreation after the strain of a hard day's
study. A summer camp for men and boys, under the super-
vision of the school, enables the student to enjoy the outing
of a mountain camp while engaging in the regular work of the
school. Tents will be provided by the school for those who
apply within a reasonable time before the opening date.
12 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE

supplied upon application.
Checks should be drawn for the exact amount of the bill
and made payable to the order of the REGISTRAR, —
