Campus Life 



History and Tradition 

Lycoming is a new name for an old institution. The original 
school was founded in 1812 and was known as Williamsport Acad- 
emy. It was the first educational institution in Williamsport, and as 
such confined its efforts to teaching the young. Later, as* the public 
school system developed, the Academy elevated its program to in- 
clude the higher grades and college preparatory work. 

In 1848, under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, the Academy became Williamsport-Dickinson Seminary. 
The seminary status continued until 1929, when another change 
created Dickinson Junior College. During its years as a junior col- 
lege, the institution forged a sound academic reputation, expanded 
its facilities and strengthened its faculty. 

The increased demand for higher education following World 
War II prompted another change in 1948 when the junior college 
became a four-year liberal arts and sciences college and changed its 
name to Lycoming. The name Lycoming is a corruption of the 
Indian word "lacomic"— from the vocabulary of the Monsey (Mun- 
cy) tribe— meaning "Great Stream." Lycoming is a name that has 
been common to north central Pennsylvania since colonial times and 
is an appropriate one for a school that has been, and is continuing 
to be, influential in the educational, cultural and spiritual develop 
ment of the area. 

The foregoing brief history is evidence of one aspect of Lycom- 
ing's tradition: that of growth and evolution to meet the demands 
of our changing society and culture. 

Through more than a century of its history, the College has 
had the stabilizing influence of The Methodist Church, another as- 
pect of its tradition. The evolution of Lycoming from its origins to 
its present status has been accomplished without abandoning its 
convictions that the Christian philosophy of life is the proper leaven 
of higher education. Lycoming strives to foster a Christian atmos- 
phere in all aspects of the college program, and to stress the devel- 
opment and practice of a Christian way of life. 

Since Lycoming is a small college— 850 students— it has been 
able to continue its tradition of friendliness and fellowship among 
students, faculty and administration. In this personalized setting, 
students can be motivated— indeed, inspired— to apply themselves 
more diligently and to develop their potentialities more completely. 
Throughout, Lycoming emphasizes the importance and value of 
scholarship, intellectual curiosity, critical evaluation, and integrity. 

20 



Locale 

Williamsport, home of Lycoming College, is located on the 
West Branch of the beautiful Susquehanna River in north central 
Pennsylvania. Its population is approximately sixty-five thousand, 
and its industry is diversified. 

Williamsport is in an area that is famous for its beautiful 
mountain scenery, and fine outdoor recreational facilities. Such 
sports as hunting and fishing attract thousands of enthusiasts from 
other areas annually. The community has a fine public school system, 
a civic choir and civic orchestra; it has two large parks and numerous 
playgrounds and is generally oriented to provide exceptional op- 
portunities for youth. There are eighty-eight churches, representing 
a large number of denominations and convictions. 

Williamsport is within two hundred miles of Washington, 
D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo, 
Rochester, and Pittsburgh. It is easily accessible by air, train, bus, 
or automobile. Allegheny, Capital and Trans World Airlines have 
eighteen flights daily, with passenger service direct to Buffalo, Wash- 
ington, D. C, Boston, Pittsburgh, New York City, and Philadel- 
phia. The Pennsylvania Railroad provides daily passenger service to 
all major cities. Greyhound Lines and the Edwards Lakes-to-Sea 
System run busses to all major cities daily. Williamsport is on U. S. 
Highways Nos. 15 and 220, and on State Highway No. 14. 



Purpose 



It is Lycoming's expressed purpose to offer to qualified students 
instruction in liberal arts and business administration. This in- 
struction is presented for the further purpose of realizing as far as 
possible the following broad objectives: 

1. To develop better informed, socially competent and con- 
tributive citizens in a democracy. 

2. To develop more critically analytic individuals. 

3. To develop individuals conscious of higher esthetic, ethical 
and spiritual values. 

4. To assist each student to develop an integrated personality. 

5. To foster a Christian atmosphere in all aspects of the college 
program. 

21 



Extra-Curricular Activities 



Freshman Program 

The college recognizes the need for giving the freshmen assis- 
tance in making desirable adjustments to the college situation. A 
special program has been prepared for the orientation of freshmen. 

All freshmen are required to come to the college several days in 
advance of the upper-classmen. During this time various tests are 
given which will aid the college staff in advising the student in his 
choice of courses. During this period problems of freshman ad- 
justment are discussed, and directions for study, the use of the 
library, and other instructional aids are given. Provision is also 
made for recreation and introduction to a wholesome social life. 



Religious Tradition 

Lycoming College is a Methodist educational institution. How- 
ever, it is non-sectarian. A check of the Board of Directors, the 
faculty, and the student body indicates membership in twenty dif- 
ferent denominations including Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish. 
Traditionally, the college attempts to help students of all faiths find 
the place of religion in their lives. Students attend Sunday morning 
services at churches in the city. Each student is encouraged to be 
loyal to the church of his choice. 

The college aims to stress the development and practice of a 
Christian philosophy of life. Through the generosity of the late 
Honorable M. B. Rich, for eighteen years President of the Board of 
Directors, a Department of Religion has been established at the 
College. Courses in Religion (optional with non-Protestants who 
may substitute a course in Philosophy) include a systematic study 
of the Bible. The Religious Life Council is the student organization 
responsible for coordinating the religious activities of the campus. 
The Director of Religious Activities serves as adviser to this group. 
Under the direction of the Council, the Committee for the Religious 
Emphasis Week brings to the campus outstanding religious leaders. 
Many of the chapel and assembly programs are religious in nature. 
Speakers include prominent civic leaders, faculty members, and 
national figures. 

The John Wesley Club is composed of students preparing for 
the ministry or other forms of religious work. Through regular 

22 



meetings and deputation teams, students gain valuable training and 
experience in religious work. 



Cultural Influences 

Lycoming aims to develop in its students an easy familiarity 
with the best social forms and customs. Young men and women 
meet in the dining hall, at receptions and other social functions. 
These contacts, together with talks by instructors, do much to 
develop poise and social ease. 

The Artists and Lecturers Series provides additional opportuni- 
ties to broaden one's cultural horizon. At these events, the student 
learns to appreciate the ballet, an artist in drama, voice, or instru- 
ment, a lecturer, fine choral singing or group instrumental music. 
This is an important part of a liberal arts education. 



Student Government 

The college seeks to develop further each student's responsi- 
bility for active citizenship, both on and off campus. To this end is 
the Student Government organization representing the entire stu- 
dent body. Its purpose is to promote the general welfare of the 
college and to foster mutual understanding and respect between 
students and administration. 

Certain phases of dormitory life are supervised and regulated 
by student dormitory councils. These provide valuable experience 
in human relations and in the solution of problems that inevitably 
arise where groups live together in close proximity. The Dean of 
Students and his staff exercise general supervisory influence over 
all dormitory matters. 

Campus Groups 

A variety of organizations on the campus provides opportuni- 
ties for social and intellectual growth. These groups are organized 
and conducted by students in cooperation with faculty sponsors 
or advisers. 

Some of them are as follows: The International Relations 
Club, which is the campus focus for study and discussion of world 
affairs; the Student Education Association of Pennsylvania, which 
gives prospective teachers current information on the teaching field 
and an insight into the problems of education; the Dramatics Club, 

23 



which stages a variety of dramatic productions including their own 
original work; The Varsity Club, composed of lettermen, promotes 
college spirit in sports; the Pre-Medical Society for pre-medical 
students; the Engineering Society for those aspiring to be engineers; 
and the Business Club for students majoring in business adminis- 
tration. The Outing Club is open to all students who enjoy the 
out-of-doors, nature study and hiking; the Philosophy Society pro- 
vides an outlet for all students interested in the informal discussion 
of philosophic concepts; the Spanish Club studies Spanish and 
Latin-American life and culture; and the Associated Women Stu- 
dents sponsor parties and teas for students, faculty and parents. 

Campus Chatter is a student-sponsored radio program broad- 
cast over WLYC, a Williamsport radio station. Their programs 
bring to area listeners a weekly resume of college activities and 
coming events. 



College Publications 

There are six college publications. The Lycoming Courier is 
the official student paper, devoted to local interests of the student 
body, reporting cunent campus events. The Arrow, the college 
year book, is published in May and presents a record of student 
life during the current academic year. The staffs of both publica- 
tions are composed of students interested in gaining more knowledge 
and experience in journalism and business practices. The Alumni 
Bulletin, issued three times a year, keeps the alumni posted on cur- 
rent happenings at the college and on alumni activities. The Guide- 
fost, published by the Student Government, is a student handbook 
of regulations and miscellaneous information which is distributed 
during the first week of school. The Student Bulletin is issued 
weekly and The Faculty Bulletin as needed by the Dean's office. 



Fraternities 

Five Greek letter groups on the campus provide a means of 
bringing to men students the advantages of national fraternal organi- 
zation as well as group housing. They include the Psi Chapter of 
Kappa Delta Rho, Beta Lambda Chapter of Sigma Pi, Iota Beta Zeta 
Chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, Epsilon Beta Chapter of Theta Chi, 
and the Nu Chapter of Alpha Gamma Upsilon. 

The Inter-Fraternity Council coordinates the activities of the 
fraternities.

General Programs and Rules 



Intercollegiate Sports 

The college offers an attractive program of intercollegiate ath- 
letics and encourages wide participation by its students. It is a 
member of the Middle Atlantic Athletic Conference and the National 
Collegiate Athletic Association. Lycoming annually meets some of 
the top-ranking small college teams in the East in athletic compe- 
tition. Contests are scheduled with other colleges in football, basket- 
ball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, golf, swimming, and soccer. 

Intramural Athletics 

An extensive and diversified program of intramural athletic 
competition affords opportunity for every student to participate in 
one or more sports of his own choosing. 

Sports for men include touch football, basketball, volleyball, 
bowling, badminton, table tennis, tennis, Softball, golf, wrestling, 
swimirfing, horseshoes, track and field. 

Sports for women include competition in basketball, volleyball, 
bowling, badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, swimming, field 
hockey, archery, and rhythmical activities. Field days are arranged 
with WAA groups of other colleges and universities during the 
school year. 

Physical Education 

Physical Education is one phase of the education of the whole 
student. It is here that the student develops not only in physical 
ability, but also in leadership and in proper habits of living. Here 
students are encouraged to gain and improve skills, attitudes, and 
knowledge that will provide a sound recreational outlet following 
graduation. It is to this end that the program of activities is directed. 

Physical Education is required of all freshmen and sophomores 
except veterans, who are exempt. All classes are for the purpose 
of instruction. 

The college accepts no financial responsibility for medical, 
surgical, or other expenses arising from injuries occurring in physical 
education classes or the intramural program which exceeds the care 
provided for in the normal college Infirmary service. 

27 



Required Health Information 

The following data is required by the College Physician: (1) 
a medical report signed by the candidate's physician and by his 
parent or guardian; and (2) a card signed by the physician indicating 
the basis for any necessary restriction in, or exclusion from, the 
physical education activity program. 

Veterans are exempt from the second requirement. 

In connection with the physical examination, all entering stu- 
dents must have a chest X-ray. If this cannot be arranged before 
entering, the Tuberculosis Society will take chest X-rays at a nomi- 
nal cost. The student bears the expense of the X-ray. 



Infirmary Service 

The infirmary fee, included in the over-all activities fee, covers 
the following medical service: the college nurse holds infirmary 
hours each day, except Sunday, that the college dormitories are 
open; she is also available for first aid treatment and will call to 
the attention of the college physician any case demanding special 
treatment. 

Such service, however, shall not be interpreted to include X- 
rays, surgery of more than minor nature, care of major accidents 
on or off campus, immunization for colds, examination for glasses, 
doctors' calls, cases of serious chronic disorder, or other extraordi- 
nary situation. 

Special nursing service and special medicines and prescriptions 
will be at the expense of the student. Parents will be notified by the 
College when students are confined to the infirmary with serious 
illnesses. 



Student Insurance 

By a special group plan, our students are able to secure acci- 
dent and sickness insurance covering medical and hospital expenses 
whether at home or at college during one academic year. Reim- 
bursement will be made up to $500.00 for each accident. All stu- 
dents are advised to carry this protection. 

28 



Guidance 

An advantage of a small college is the rich experience gained by 
the close association of students and faculty. In addition to this 
valuable personal relationship, which affords students the opportu- 
nity to discuss various problems with their instructors, Lycoming 
has a well-rounded guidance program for its students. Under the 
direction of the Dean of the College, this program includes areas 
as represented by the Dean of Students, the Dean of Women, and 
the Guidance Director with his group of faculty advisers. 

The program begins with a personal interview between the 
Director of Admissions and the candidate for admission. These 
interviews are sufficient in length to obtain a picture of the student, 
his background, and his plans for the future. When the student 
enters the College as a Freshman, he is assigned to one of a group 
of faculty counselors who are released from part of their teaching 
responsibilities in order to advise Freshmen. The new student will 
meet with the counselor at least four times during the year, with 
other meetings being arranged as the need arises. The Freshman 
will find his professionally trained counselor eager to guide and 
assist in the many problems that confront the new college student. 
Incorporated into the Freshman Counseling Program is the oppor- 
tunity to take aptitude and psychological examinations. On the 
basis of preparatory or high school grades, interest inventories, and 
other psychological tests, the student, with the help of the counselor, 
will be able to make intelligent decisions concerning educational and 
vocational choices. Additional counseling is available to the student 
in the area of personal and emotional adjustment. Where specific 
need is indicated by the student, the Guidance Director is prepared 
to offer intensive personal adjustment counseling. 



Placement Service 

The Placement Bureau maintains a register listing the talents 
and major interests of students and recent alumni. Literature 
from businesses and industrial associations is kept available. Con- 
sultations with the Placement Director assist students toward wise 
selection of a profession. Interviews are then scheduled at which 
students meet and confer with representatives from companies in 
which they are interested. The goal of the Bureau is to make the 
best possible connection for each graduate. Lycoming graduates 
are usually placed before commencement. 

There are many diversified businesses in Williamsport. These 
firms give students at Lycoming splendid opportunities for visits, 

29 



tours, and career conferences. They also afford the student body a 
variety of part-time jobs during each college session. The Place- 
ment Bureau serves as a clearinghouse for part-time employment 
and can usually find work for every student needing it. 

Provisions for Veterans 

Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program for 
Veterans under Federal Public Laws 550, 634, and 894. 



Residence 

All single students who do not reside at home are required to 
live in the college residence halls and eat their meals in the college 
dining room. Special diets cannot be provided. Exceptions to 
these regulations can be approved only for the purpose of working 
for room and/or board or to live with relatives. Requests for excep- 
tions must be submitted in writing to the Dean of Students or the 
Dean of Women. The petition must include the name of the 
householder and the address where the student wishes to live. 

Members and pledges of social fraternities are required to live 
in their houses when space is available. All fraternity members 
eat their meals in the college dining room. 

Residents furnish their own linens, towels, blankets, bedspreads, 
and wastebaskets. Residents of fraternities and Old Main also 
furnish their own desk lamps. Drapes are provided in Rich Hall, 
but are not provided in the Men's New Dormitory, Old Main or 
fraternity houses. 

Linens, towels, and blankets may be rented from College Linen 
Supply, Inc. Information is sent to all resident students concerning 
this service following their assignment to a room. 

Women's Residence 

Resident women students live either in Rich Hall or Rich 
House. The latter is the honor house for upperclass women. The 
main residence for women is Rich Hall, which was built in 1948 
and will accommodate 114 women. Rooms are arranged in suites 
of two rooms with two students living in each room. Each four 
students have private bath facilities. 

Also located in Rich Hall are the women's infirmary, recrea- 
tion room, television room, and laundry facilities. Lounges, mail 

30 



room, telephone switchboard, and suites for the Dean of Women 
and her assistant are all located on the first floor. 

All resident women students are members of the Resident Wo- 
men's Association of Lycoming College. They establish standards 
and regulations for community living and endeavor to assist each 
new student in her adjustment to living in a college dormitory. All 
dormitory activities are under the supervision of the Dean of Women. 

Men's Residence 

All resident men live in the Men's New Dorm, Old Main, or 
fraternity houses. Upperclassmen have priority in assignment of all 
rooms, except for 48 places reserved for freshmen on the third floor 
of Men's New Dorm. Rooms for freshmen are assigned according 
to the date the room reservation fee of $50.00 is paid following 
notification of admission. 

All rooms are for double occupancy. Rooms are furnished 
with a single bed, pillow, a desk, desk chair, and a dresser for each 
occupant. In the Men's New Dorm, the furniture is built into the 
room, except for the bed, and a light is provided over the desk. 
Window shades are provided in all rooms. It is advisable to wait 
until after arriving on the campus to purchase drapes and bedspreads, 
if desired. 



Discipline 

The discipline of the College is firm, reasonable, and sympa- 
thetic. All students are considered responsible citizens and mem- 
bers of a Christian community. Any student who is antagonistic 
to the spirit and general purpose, or who fails to abide by the 
regulations set up by the College, may be asked to withdraw from 
the College at any time during the school year. 

Regulations 

It is understood that students entering Lycoming do so with the 
intention of making an honest eff"ort to do satisfactory work in every 
respect. When a student is not able to conform to the school pro- 
gram, the parents or guardians are asked to withdraw the student 
from the school. 

The College regulations, in addition to those published here, are 
furnished each student upon matriculation. Announcements dur- 

31 



ing the year by college authorities may amend or supplement the 
catalogue regulations and are to be adhered to as such. 

Money and valuables should be placed in the school safe; other- 
wise the College will not assume responsibility. 

No intoxicants or drinking of intoxicants is permitted on 
campus. 

Students found in an intoxicated condition will be expelled.

obtained from the administration and official decals must be secured 
from the College Bookstore. Freshman men and all resident women 
are not permitted to maintain automobiles while attending the 
College.

Academic Program 



Standards 



Grading System 

A credit hour is defined as one hour of classroom work, or the 
equivalent, each week during a full term of sixteen weeks. Ordi- 
narily two hours of laboratory work are rated as one credit hour. 

Lycoming College uses the letter system of grading. "A" indi- 
cates work of highest excellence showing a superior grasp of the 
content, as well as independent and creative thinking in the course. 
"B" signifies better than average achievement wherein the student 
reveals insight and understanding. A grade of "C" is given for sat- 
isfactory achievement where the work has been of adequate quality 
and quantity. "C" is generally regarded as an average grade. A 
"D" grade indicates that the student has met the minimum require- 
ments of the course and need not repeat it. Students receiving "D" 
grades may repeat the course in an effort to improve the grade if 
they wish. "F" is a failing grade, and the student receives neither 
credits nor quality points for courses carrying an "F" grade. A stu- 
dent must repeat all required courses for which he receives "F" 
grades. Students may not repeat courses for which they received 
grades of "C" or higher. 

Scholastic rank is determined by the quality point system. A 
grade of "A" carries 4 quality points per semester hour. "B" carries 
3, "C" carries 2, "D" carries 1, and "F" carries 0. , A student's schol- 
astic or grade-point average is computed by dividing total quality 
points earned by total credits scheduled. 

Probation 

Any student whose grade-point average for a semester is 1.5 
or lower is placed on academic probation. Any student whose grade- 
point average is between 1.5 and 2.0 for two successive semesters 
is placed on academic probation. 

A student on academic probation must remove himself from 
probation the succeeding semester by earning a grade-point average 
of 2.0 or higher. Failure to remove the condition of probation the 
succeeding semester results in dismissal for academic deficiency. 

The probation rule does not prevent the immediate dismissal of 
any student who establishes an exceptionally low academic record 
in any semester. 

34 



Dismissal 

Freshmen who fail to maintain an average of at least 1.00 the 
first year shall be asked to withdraw from the College. Upper 
classmen whose averages fall below 1.00 for any semester may be 
asked to withdraw from the College. The College also reserves the 
right to deny admission to any applicant or to dismiss any student 
at any time if the administration considers such action to be for the 
best interests of the student or the College. Students dismissed for 
academic reasons may request reinstatement after one semester. 
Readmission of a student may be refused if in the considered opin- 
ion of the Admissions Committee he does not meet all the require- 
ments of the College in the specific curriculum for which readmission 
has been sought. 



Attendance 

The program at Lycoming is built on the assumption that there 
is value in class and assembly and chapel attendance for all stu- 
dents. Therefore, all students are expected to attend all classes 
and a specified number of assembly and chapel exercises. 

Specific regulations as to permissible absences and penalties for 
excessive absences are announced from time to time. Responsi- 
bility for learning and complying with these regulations rests with 
the student. 



Normal Student Load 

The normal load per semester for students is from twelve to 
sixteen hours of academic work. Two classes per week of physical 
education are required during the first two years. 



Overload 

Students who wish to carry in excess of the normal load are 
charged $20.00 per credit hour. A schedule of more than seventeen 
hours of academic work may be taken if the student has an average 
of 3.0 for all previous work and obtains written permission from 
the Dean of the College. 

35 



Classification of Students 

Freshman: See requirements for admission. 

Sophomore: Not fewer than 24 semester hours. 

Junior: Not fewer than 54 semester hours. 

Senior: Not fewer than 86 semester hours and a reasonable chance 
of completing all requirements for graduation. 
All students are classified as to their class status in September 
of each year. No changes in classification are made during 
the academic year even though a student may have accumu- 
lated credits in excess of the number required for the next 
higher class. 

Unclassified: Students who do not wish to enter upon a regular 
course of study may pursue studies offered for which their 
previous training, in the opinion of the College, fits them. 
Only a limited number of unclassified students are accepted. 
Such students are not admitted to candidacy for a degree. 

Requirements for Graduation 

The College offers courses of study leading to the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. For either degree the 
minimum requirements are: 
120 academic hours, including required courses and one major of 

at least 24 hours.

per credit hour; "B"— 3 points per credit hour; "C"— 2 points 

per credit hours; "D"— 1 point per credit hour. 
4 semester hours credit of physical education (not included in the 

120 academic hours).

by school records and examinations, but also to the applicant's char- 
acter, personality, and interest and accomplishments in extracurricular 
pursuits. 

Admission to Lycoming College is on a competitive basis. Early

Curricula 



Programs of Study 

Lycoming College oflFers in general two programs of study, one 
leadina to the Bachelor of Arts degree and the other to the Bachelor 
of Science degree. 

The Bachelor of Arts degree is taken in the liberal arts and 
sciences. It provides acquaintance and familiarity in the broad areas 
of the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, thus assuring 
a suitable reference base for understanding and dealing with the 
problems one meets from day to day. It is a prerequisite for later 
programs in graduate school and in professional schools of art, den- 
tistry, law, medicine, ministry, music, teaching, etc. Suggested pro- 
grams for each of these professions are found on the pages following 
this one. 

The Bachelor of Science degree is taken in the specific fields of 
business administration, medical technology, nursing and teaching. 
Here, also, there is a core of liberal arts requirements covering the 
areas of the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The 
difference lies mainly in the inclusion here of certain courses of a 
more technical nature. 

Aside from these two degree programs, certain terminal courses 
are offered in secretarial and engineering work. 

The first two years of the Bachelor of Arts program are con- 
cerned with the basic areas of a liberal arts education. Here one 
acquires a background of knowledge and skills in the communica- 
tion and manipulation of ideas. It is in these first two years that 
the foundation is laid for further concentration in a specific field. 

By the end of the second year the student should have selected 
a field of concentration for his major study, and his last two years 
are devoted to this subject and others as they are related to it.

Pre-Medicine 

The modern physician or surgeon is no longer one who has studied 

merely medicine. He is a man with a broad cultural training, capable of 
treating more than physical ailments. Therefore, medical authorities are 
recommending a full four years of liberal arts program and are requiring 
certain specific subjects in preparation for medical school.

Expenses and Scholarships 



Expenses 



General Expenses 

In considering the expenses of college, it is well to bear in mind 
that no student actually pays the full cost of his education. State 
colleges are enabled to keep the cost of tuition within reasonable 
limits by grants from the public treasury; independent colleges 
achieve this by voluntary contributions supplemented by income 
from their invested endowment funds. At Lycoming College, the 
tuition fee which each student pays represents only a portion of 
the total instruction cost. Tuition is kept at the lowest possible 
minimum consistent with adequate facilities and competent in- 
struction. 

Tuition at Lycoming is $300.00 per semester, plus certain fees 
which are listed on the following pages. For students taking meals 
at the College, rooms in Rich Hall, Rich House, the Men's new 
Dormitory, and the Fraternity Houses are $100.00 per semester. In 
Old Main— $75.00 per semester. (The academic year comprises 
two semesters of approximately sixteen weeks each.) If for any 
justifiable reason it is impossible for a student to eat in the College 
Dining Hall, permission may be given the student to make other 
arrangements for meals. However, in the event such permission is 
granted, the room cost will be 50% higher than the above rates. If 
a student requests the use of a double room as a single room and 
the room is available, he will be charged 50% more than regular rates. 

Regularly enrolled students carrying a normal schedule of from 
13 to 16 hours of class or laboratory (exclusive of Physical Educa- 
tion) pay the full tuition charge. Those students taking fewer than 
13 hours of work per semester, are charged $20.00 per credit hour. 
Additional credits beyond the normal schedule of 16 hours are 
charged at the rate of $20.00 for each semester hour credit. Addi- 
tional detailed information will be furnished by the Treasurer's office 
upon request. 



Application Fee and Deposit 

All students applying for admission are required to send an 
application fee of $10.00 with the application. This charge is to 

104 



defray the costs of processing the apphcation, and of keeping 
academic records. 

After a resident student is notified that he has been accepted for 
admission by the college, he is required to make a deposit of $50.00. 
This deposit is evidence of the applicant's good intention to matricu- 
late, and serves as a room reservation fee. 

Non-resident students are required to make a deposit of $25.00 
after they are notified that they have been accepted. Deposits re- 
quired of both resident and non-resident students are applicable to 
the general charges of the semester, and are not extra fees. 

All returning students are required to pay a deposit of $25.00 
on or before July 1, to reserve their place in the student body. This 
fee is credited to their account. Above deposits are credited to the 
student's account, but are not refundable after August 1, 1958. 



Books and Supplies 

A modern book and supply store is conveniently located on 
the campus. Books and supplies are purchased by the individual 
student. The estimated cost is approximately $65.00 per year, but 
will vary somewhat in accordance with the course of study which 
the student is pursuing. The bookstore is open registration day 
and daily thereafter. 



Art and Music 

Tuition for art and music majors is higher than it is for the 
other courses of study. In these programs best results are obtained 
by individual instruction; consequently the expense is greater. The 
cost in excess of the normal tuition varies according to the student's 
program of study but does not exceed $50.00 per semester. The 
exact cost is determined at the time of registration. 

Special or part time music students are charged $50.00 per 
semester for one one-half hour lesson per week. 

A charge of $5.00 per semester for piano and $10.00 per semes- 
ter for organ is made when these instruments are required for 
practice. These rates are for one period per day for each lesson 
scheduled. 

Special or part time applied art students will be charged $75.00 
for six class periods per week (three credit hours).

Withdrawals and Refunds 

The date on which the Dean of the College approves the student's with- 
drawal sheet is considered the official date of withdrawal. In the case of

Room rentals have been fixed on a semester basis. Consequendy, stu- 
dents leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entitled to

of attendance.

from the College while in good standing and is fixed on the following basis: 
Students leaving during the first four-week period are charged 30%; during 
the second four weeks 60%; during the third four weeks, 90%; after twelve 
weeks, full charge. 

Dropping a subject from the original schedule after the first week of 
either semester will not justify any claim for refund of tuition charges. Writ- 
ten permission to drop the subject must be obtained from the Dean's Office. 
No refund will be made to those students who are asked to withdraw from 
college. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever.

account for previous attendance has not been setded.

of these subjects. 



Loans 

A limited number of worthy students who are members of The Methodist 
Church may secure loans from the Student Loan Fund administered by the 
Board of Education of that Church. Christian character, satisfactory scholar- 
ship, promise of usefulness, financial responsibility, and the recommendation of 
the church to which the apphcant belongs are essential to a loan.

sylvania Conferences of The Methodist Church for students from these con-
