The Alumni Association 



The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has a living 
membership of almost five thousand men and women. It is gov- 
erned by an Executive Board of five officers and twenty-one mem- 
bers nominated and elected by the membership. It elects annually 
a member to the Board of Directors of the College for a three 
year term. The Assistant to the President of the College directs 
the activities of the Alumni Office. 

The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has two ob- 
jectives: (1) to promote the interests of the College, and (2) to foster 
among its members loyalty and devotion to their alma mater. All 
persons who have successfully completed one year of study at 
Lycoming College, or Williamspoit-Dickinson Junior College, and 
all former students of Williamsport-Dickinson Seminary are 
members of the Association. 

The Alumni Office is located in room 208 on the second 
floor of Old Main. Arrangements for Homecoming, Alumni Day, 
Class Reunions, Club meetings and similar activities are coordinated 
tlirough this office. There are active Alumni Clubs in Williamsport, 
Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Rochester, New York; 
and Washington, D.C. 

Lycoming College holds Class A, B, and C memberships in 
the American Alumni Council. Through its Alumni Fund, the 
Alumni Office is closely associated with the Development Program 
of the College. 

Acting as the representative of alumni on the campus, and 
working also with undergraduates, the Alumni office aids in keep- 
ing alumni informed and interested in the program, growth 
and activities of the College. 

Communications to the Alumni Association should be addressed 
to the Alumni Office.

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 Mousey (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 con- 
tinuing to be, influential in the educational, cultural and spiritual 
development of the area. 

The foregoing brief history is evidence of one aspect of 
Lycoming'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 
atmosphere in all aspects of the college program, and to stress the 
development 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 sys- 
tem and a civic choir; it has two large parks and numerous play- 
grounds and is generally oriented to provide exceptional oppor- 
tunities 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, Baltimore, 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 forty-two flights daily, with passenger service direct 
to Buffalo, Cleveland, Washington, D. C, Boston, Pittsburgh, New 
York City, and Philadelphia. The Pennsylvania Railroad provides 
daily passenger service to all major cities. Greyhound Lines and 
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 stu- 
dents instruction in liberal arts and business administration. This 
instruction 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 col- 
lege program. 

21 



Extra-Curricular Activities 

The non-academic educational experiences are an important 
part of every student's life at Lycoming College. They are pro- 
vided on the assumption that everything a student does has a pur- 
pose and it is the desire of Lycoming that these purposes be a 
major means of helping the student achieve the goals of the Col- 
lege. The program is planned in conjunction w^ith the Student 
Government Association and with the assistance and counsel of 
faculty. It is the objective to provide a sufficient and varied pro- 
gram that will enable every student to participate in his particular 
area of interest, and to find full expression in wholesome social 
experiences. 

Student Government 

Self-government by students in certain areas of campus life is 
an objective achieved through tlie Student Government Associa- 
tion of Lycoming College. The Student Council is the legislative 
body of the Association. The officers of the Student Government 
Association are elected from the entire student body. Members of 
Student Council are elected by classes and certain other organi- 
zations. 

The Council is responsible for a large part of the social pro- 
gram of the College. All dances are co-sponsored with other or- 
ganizations, and til 8 Dance Committee plans informal dances on 
week-ends when no other activities are scheduled. Student Coun- 
cil has been delegated responsibilit}^ for campus parking. It has 
established its own regulations and enforces them through paid 
traffic oflBcers and the Student Court, composed of four Student 
Government members. 

The Social Calendar Committee is responsible for approving 
the scheduling of all social events by any group. Its responsibility 
is to prevent conflicts in scheduling for the benefit of all groups 
concerned. 

Homecoming Week-end, Christmas activities, Spring Week- 
end, Crystal Ball, Turkey Trot, Mardi Gras, and Spring Carnival 
are some of the major activities sponsored by Student Government 
during the year. 

Other governing groups on the campus are the Inter-Frater- 
nity Council, the Men's Dormitory Council, the Women's Dormi- 
tory Council, and Associated Women Students. Each operates 
under limited authority in situations related to its specific area. 



Religious Traditions 

Lycoming College is owned by the Preachers Aid Society of 
The Methodist Church. Its faculty and students express their re- 
ligious convictions through membership and participation in almost 
thirty Protestant denominations and the Roman Catholic and 
Jewish faiths. It is the purpose of the College to provide its stu- 
dents with significant opportunities for the expression of religious 
faith. Each student is encouraged to be loyal to the church of his 
choice in the city of Williamsport by his attendance and support. 

Lycoming College firmly believes in Christian higher educa- 
tion. In numerous ways it provides opportunities and guidance 
for students who wish to develop and practice the Christian 
philosophy of Hfe. This is accomplished in the following ways: 

Through the Department of Religion, established by the late 
Honorable M. B. Rich, for eighteen years President of the Board 
of Directors. 

Through the weekly Chapel Program, which brings to the 
campus outstanding religious leaders who share with the Student 
Body the best in contemporary rehgious thinking. 

Through the Director of Religious Activities, who is a member 
of the Faculty with teaching responsibilities. He is responsible for 
co-ordinating the religious activities of the College and provides 
counselling in the area of religion to students who request his as- 
sistance. He serves as Executive Secretary to the Religious Life 
Council. 

Through the Religious Life Council, the student organization 
responsible for co-ordinating religious groups on the campus. It is 
composed of representatives from all student religious organiza- 
tions, the Student Government, Faculty and Administration, and 
the local clergy. 

Through the annual week of religious emphasis, usually held 
in February. Outstanding Christian leaders come to the campus 
each year to meet with the students and to discuss with them ques- 
tions of importance in some aspect of religion, with the objective of 
stimulating discussion and interest in this area of campus life. 

Through religious organizations which include Methodist Stu- 
dent Movement, John Wesley Club (Methodist), Catholic Club, 
Canterbury Club (Episcopal), Lutheran Club, and Icthus Club, 
(Baptist and Presbyterian). Each of these groups meets regularly 
to provide members of its faith with the opportunity^ to participate 
in activities of common interest. 

23 



Social and Cultural Influences 

Lycoming aims to give its students every possible opportunity 
to become familiar vdth the best social customs and usages. The 
development of poise and ease in handling oneself in social situa- 
tions is a major objective in the program of the College. These 
experiences are provided through the dining room, coffees and re- 
ceptions, and other social functions. 

The Artist and Lecture Series presents eight performances of 
the best obtainable talent in music, drama, the dance, and lecture. 
The Series is presented to provide wider cultural experiences than 
might normally be available to the student. Although the Series is 
entertaining, its prime objective is to acquaint the student with 
the arts and the humanities as they are performed on a professional 
level. 

College Publications and Communications 

There are six official college publications. Each is devoted to 
a specific area of college life, and is designed to communicate to 
selected groups of the college constituency. 

The Bell, official student newspaper, is published weekly, and 
is devoted to interests of the student body, reporting current cam- 
pus events. 

The Arrow, college yearbook, is published in May and pre- 
sents a record of student life during the current academic year. 

The Guidepost, pubhshed annually by Student Government, is 
a student handbook of regulations and miscellaneous information. 
It is designed primarily for new students and is published annually 
and distributed to them prior to their arrival on the campus. 

The Alumni OflBce publishes The Alumni Bulletin three times 
yearly. It is designed to keep the alumni informed of current hap- 
penings at the college and on alumni activities. The Newsletter is 
published periodically, between issues of the Bulletin. 

The Student Bulletin and TJie Faculty Bulletin are published 
weekly by the office of the Dean of the College. 

The Campus Radio Station broadcasts nightly from 7:00 p.m. 
until midnight on a wired circuit to the New Men's Dormitory. 
Expansion to other residence units is contemplated for the future. 
The station broadcasts study music, news commentary, sports re- 
sults, and special programs of interest to the student body. 

All of the above publications and the radio station are staffed 
with students interested in gaining experience in writing and in 
business practices. 

24 



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



Campus Clubs and Organizations 

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 the groups are: 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 Drama Club, which 
stages a variety of dramatic productions including their own origi- 
nal work; The Varsity Club, composed of lettermen, promotes col- 
lege spirit in sports; the Pre-Medical Society for pre-medical stu- 
dents; 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 and German Club study 
the language and the life and culture of the countries; and the As- 
sociated Women Students sponsor parties and teas for students, 
faculty and parents. 



Fraternities 

Five Greek letter groups on the campus provide a means of 
bringing to men students the ad\'antages of national fraternal or- 
ganization 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

General Programs and Rules 



Freshmen Orientation 

A period preceding the opening of the Fall Term is set aside 
to provide freshmen and transfer students with assistance in making 
the adjustment to a college environment. A special program con- 
sisting of placement testing, interviews with faculty counselors, 
general orientation meetings, formal convocations, registration, and 
social and recreational activity is prepared for this period. Faculty 
and selected upperclassmen are present to assist the new student 
during Orientation Week. 

All new students are required to participate in this program. 
The schedule is mailed to each freshman and transfer student dur- 
ing the summer. 



Freshmen Customs 

Certain traditions and customs have been established for fresh- 
men. They are designed to help the freshmen become acquainted 
with the history and customs of Lycoming College. Each regula- 
tion has a purpose in the development of the individual freshmen 
into a class group which is a part of tlie total college community. 
The customs freshmen will be expected to observe are printed in 
the Guidepost. 



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 Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic Association. Lycoming annually meets 
some of the top-ranking small college teams in the East in athletic 
competition. Contests are scheduled with other colleges in football, 
basketball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, golf, swimming, and soccer. 

28 



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, 
swimming, 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. 



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 indicat- 
ing 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. 



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. 

29 



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. 



Counselling Program 

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 afiFords students the opportu- 
nity to discuss various problems with their instructors, Lycoming 
has a well-rounded counselling 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, the 
Director of Counselling and 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 Counselling 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 counselling is available to the 
student in the area of academic, personal and emotional adjustment. 
Where specific need is indicated by the student, the Director of 
Counselling is prepared to offer intensive personal adjustment 
counselling. 

30 



Placement Service 

The Placement Bureau maintains a register listing the abilities 
and major interests of students and recent alumni. Literature from 
businesses and industrial associations is kept available. Consulta- 
tions 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. Lycoming graduates are usually placed 
before commencement. 

There are many diversified businesses in Williamsport. These 
firms give students at Lycoming splendid opportunities for visits, 
tours, and conferences. They also afford the student body a variety 
of part-time jobs during each college session. The Placement 
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 Dormitory, Old Main or fra- 
ternity 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. 

31 



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 
room, telephone switchboard, and the office for the Head Resident 
are all located on the first floor. 

All resident women students are members of the Resident 
Women's Association of Lycoming College. They establish stand- 
ards 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 hve in the Men's 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 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 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 College expects all of its students to accept the responsi- 
bilities required of citizens in a free democratic society. The rules 
and regulations of the College are designed to protect the rights of 
every member of the community against encroachment by individ- 
uals. The limitations which are imposed upon the activities of 
individuals are established for the common good of the entire 
college community. 

32 



Students who are unable to demonstrate that they can accept 
this responsibility or who are antagonistic to the spirit and general 
purpose of the College, or who fail to abide by the regulations 
established by the College may be dismissed or requested to leave 
the College at any time during the academic year. 



Regulations 

Certain regulations have been established by the College. In 
addition to those published here, specific rules are furnished each 
student upon matriculation, or are published in the Guidepost. 

Announcements during the academic year may amend or sup- 
plement the catalogue regulations. 



Alcoholic Beverages 

The position of Lycoming College regarding the use of alco- 
holic beverages by its campus constituency is based upon the 
oflBcial position of The Methodist Church, which is stated in Para- 
graph 2022 of the Discipline of The Methodist Church, 1956 edition, 
and upon the premise that any activity not contributing construct- 
ively to the development of a mature citizen in the college 
community is inconsistent with the aims and ideals of the College. 

Specific rules and regulations regarding the use of alcoholic 
beverages are based on the above statement and are consistent with 
the statutes of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in regard to 
the purchase and use of alcohoHc beverages by persons under 21 
years of age. 

The following situations may result in dismissal from the 
College or other disciplinary action. 

1. The possession and/or use of alcoholic beverages inside any 
college building, or on college property, including the storage 
of such beverages in automobiles on the campus, 

2. The use of alcoholic beverages by women, regardless of age, 
while they are resident students of the college and are not 
under the chaperonage of their parents. 

3. Returning to the campus in an intoxicated condition resulting 
in an inability to control behavior so that it is acceptable at

Academic Program 



Admissions 



Admissions Policy 

The policy of Lycoming College is to admit applicants who, in 
the opinion of the Admissions Committee, are best qualified to profit 
by the opportunties offered by the College, and who can at the 
same time make positive contributions to undergraduate life. Due 
consideration is given not only to academic attainment, as evidenced 
by school records and examinations, but also to the applicant's 
character, personahty, and interest and accompUshments in extra- 
curricular pursuits. 

Admission to Lycoming College is on a competitive basis. 
Early application, while encouraged, does not assure admission. 

Application Procedure 

Persons desiring to apply for admission should request official 
forms from the Director of Admissions. 

The Admissions Office compiles a personal file for each appli- 
cant and the following items must be submitted before final accept- 
ance is approved: 

1. Application for Admission and secondary school record on 
forms supplied by the College. A registration fee of $10.00 must 
accompany each apphcation. This fee is not refundable. 

2. A small recent photograph (approximately 2" x3") of the 
applicant. 

3. A personal interview with the Director of Admissions or an 
appointed representative. 

4. The Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Ex- 
amination Board. Applicants wishing to enter the College in Sep- 
tember should arrange to take these examinations no later than 
March of their senior year. 

The responsibility for arranging to take these examinations rests 
with the applicant. However, the Director of Admissions will be 
glad to advise any applicant on this matter if requested. 

Following receipt of the above items, the Admissions Committee 
will determine those applicants who can be accepted. All applicants 
will be notified accordingly by letter as promptly as possible. Action 
of the Admissions Committee must be regarded as final. 

38 



The College Entrance Examination Board Tests 

During the academic year 1958-59, the College Entrance Ex- 
amination Board will administer the Scholastic Aptitude Tests on 
each of the dates listed below. The deadline for application is 
approximately one month prior to the test date. 

Date of Tests 

Saturday, December 6, 1958 Saturday, March 14, 1959 

Saturday, January 10, 1959 Saturday, May 16, 1959 

Saturday, February 14, 1959 Wednesday, August 12, 1959 

Applicants should consult with their high school counsellors 
concerning the details of registering for the tests, or write directly 
to the College Entrance Examination Board, P. O. Box 592, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey, requesting the Bulletin of Information. This 
bulletin, obtainable without charge, contains rules regarding appli- 
cations, fees, reports, and the conduct of the tests; lists of examina- 
tion centers, and an application blank bound in it. The completed 
blank should be returned to the College Board office promptly. The 
applicant will then be supplied with further information about the 
tests and his ticket of admission to the test center he has specified. 
The results of the tests are sent directly to the college ( s ) listed by 
the applicant, but not to the applicant. Results are normally re- 
ceived by the colleges three to four weeks following the test date. 

Admissions Requirements 

The usual evidence of academic preparation to enter Lycoming 
College is the satisfactory completion of 15 units of high school 
work as follows:

Cooperative engineering students and mathematics majors must include plane geometry as 
one of the two units of mathematics. 

A letter of recommendation from the applicant's private teacher and/or high school music 
supervisor should accompany the application of music majors. 

Terminal Education 

In addition to programs leading to the Baccalaureate Degree, 
Lycoming offers certain two-year terminal courses in Medical Secre- 
tarial, Medical Technology, and Secretarial Science. Upon satis- 
factory completion of these courses, the student is awarded a certifi- 
cate at the graduation exercises. 

39 



Advanced Standing 

A limited number of students with advanced standing may be 
admitted to Lycoming each year. The determining factors in con- 
sidering such apphcants will be their academic records at the 
previous college, their field of concentration, and the reasons 
prompting their desire to transfer. All transfer applicants must show 
evidence of honorable dismissal from their previous college(s), 
must submit an official transcript of all work taken at other colleges, 
copies of their current catalogues, and must come to the Campus 
for a personal interview. A student admitted with advanced stand- 
ing is required to be in residence at Lycoming for at least one 
academic year. Transfer students must satisfy the College gradua- 
tion requirements to be awarded a degree. 



Admission to Summer Sessions and Evening Classes 

Persons desiring admission to summer sessions or evening 
classes should apply to the Director of Admissions. All candidates 
for degrees must meet the same entrance requirements as those 
attending regular session day classes. 

Applicants who hold degrees from other colleges or universities 
will be admitted as special students. Such applicants must present 
written evidence stating the field of concentration, the degree, and 
the date conferred. 

All other applicants who desire admission to specific courses 
will be considered on the basis of preparation and experience. 



Admissions Office 

The Admissions Office is located on the Campus on the first 
floor of the Old Main Building. The office is open Monday through 
Friday from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m., and on Saturday from 9 a. m. until 
noon. Appointments for interviews may be arranged by writing or 
calling the office. The telephone number is Williamsport 3-9411, 
Extension 12. 

All applicants are invited to visit the Campus if possible and to 
inspect the facilities of the College and meet with some of its offi- 
cials. Appointments are not required, but visitors are advised to 
arrange for them if they wish to see particular members of the 
administrative staflF or faculty.

Standards 



classification of Students 

Admission to the Freshman Class: See requirements for ad- 
mission to Lycoming College, Page 39. 

Admission to the Sophomore Class: Freshmen qualify for ad- 
mission to the sophomore class after completing at least 23 semester 
hours of college work and achieving a cumulati\'e grade point 
average of at least 1.8. Those who do not qualify for admission 
to the sophomore class shall retake recommended freshman courses 
in which they are deficient. 

Admission to the Junior Class: Sophomores qualify for ad- 
mission to the junior class after completing at least 54 semester 
hours of college work and achieving a cumulative grade point 
average of at least 1.9. Satisfactory performance in written Eng- 
lish, as judged by a proficiency examination administered by the 
English Department in the second semester of the sophomore year, 
is also a condition of admission to junior standing. 

Admission to the Senior Class: Juniors qualify for admission 
to the senior class after completing at least 85 semester hours of 
college work and achieving a cumulative grade point average of 
at least 2.0. No junior may enter senior classification until all 
freshman, sophomore and junior required courses, including for- 
eign language where applicable, have been passed. 

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. Or- 
dinarily, two hours of laboratory work are rated as one credit 
hour. 

Lycoming College uses the letter system of grading. "A" in- 
dicates 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 stu- 
dent reveals insight and understanding. A grade of "C" is given for 
satisfactory 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- 

41 



ments of the course. "F" is the faiHng grade, and the student receives 
neither credits nor quality points for courses carrying an "F" 
grade. A student must repeat all required courses for which he 
receives an "F" grade. 

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

College Honors 

A student must have passed at least ninety semester hours at 
Lycoming College to be eligible for College Honors. 

The degree siimma cum laiide shall be conferred on students 
who have an academic average for their entire college course from 
3.90 through 4.00. 

The degree magna cum latide shall be conferred on students 
who have an academic average for their entire college course from 
3.50 through 3.89. 

The degree cum laude shall be conferred on students who 
have an academic average for their entire college course from 
3.25 through 3.49. 

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 semester hours. 

Cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 in all college work 
at Lycoming College. 

Four semester hours credit in Physical Education to be taken in 
the first two years ( not included in the 120 academic hours ) . 

Chapel credit for each fall and spring semester of attendance at 
Lycoming College. 

All financial obligations incurred at the College must be paid. 

The work of the final year is to be taken at this College, except 
in the case of students enrolling in the cooperative programs 
in engineering or forestry described on page 51. Excep- 
tions may also be made in the Medical Technology and the 
Nursing programs, page 56. 

42 



Probation and Dismissal 

Freshmen whose grade-point average is 1.5 or lower in the 
first semester are placed on academic probation. Failure to achieve 
a cumulative grade-point average of at least 1.4 for the freshman 
year will result in academic dismissal. 

Any student beyond two full semesters' work whose grade-point 
average is below 1.5 for a semester or whose grade-point average 
is between 1.5 and 2.0 for two successive semesters is placed on 
academic probation. Removal from academic probationary status 
is accomplished by the student's earning a grade-point average of 
at least 2.0 in the succeeding semester. Academic dismissal will 
result if the student has not succeeded in removing himself from 
probation in the semester succeeding. 

Probation ndes do not prevent the immediate dismissal of any 
student who establishes an exceptionally low academic record in 
any semester. The College also reserves the right to dismiss any 
student at any time if the Administration considers such action to be 
in tlie best interests of the student or college. 

Where unusual or extenuating circumstances seem to warrant, 
academic dismissal from Lycoming College may be reviewed by 
the Dean of the College. 



Attendance 

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

Specific regulations as to permissable absences and penalties 
for excessive absences are announced from time to time. Respon- 
sibility for learning and complying with these regulations rests 
with the student. 



Normal Student Load 

Candidates for degrees and certificates are expected to reg- 
ister for a normal semester hour load during each semester in at- 
tendance at Lycoming College. The normal load per semester at 
Lycoming is twelve to sixteen semester hours of academic work. 
Grade-point average values used to determine probation or dis- 
missal are based upon a minimum of at least twelve hours of aca- 
demic work per semester. 

43 



Overload 

Students who wish to carry more than the normal load are 
charged $20.00 per credit hour. A schedule of more than seven- 
teen 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. 



44 



The Freshman Academic Year 



Each entering freshman is assigned a schedule of classes ac- 
cording to his interests. A freshman advisor, during a counselling 
period in the Orientation Week, will explain the selection of 
courses, assuring himself and the student that the courses selected 
are those that will fit best the student's needs. 

In general, the student who is enrolled in a Liberal Arts and 
Sciences program may anticipate the following program for the 
freshman year: 

First Semester Hrs. Second Semester Hrs. 

English 101 Composition 3 English 102 Composition 3 

History 111 West. Civilization .. 3 History 112 West. Civilization .... 3

Those students desiring to prepare for the profession of Teaching in high school or 
elementary school may anticipate the same basic freshman schedule as above; note that a 
foreign language is not required if the prospective teacher is a candidate for the Bach- 
elor of Science degree. 

Students enrolled in a Business program may expect this 
schedule: 

First Semester Hrs. Second Semester Hrs.

instead of Mathematics and Statistics. 



Electives in the Freshman Year 

The choice of an elective course will usually be made depen- 
dent upon the student's interests. Where no specific vocational in- 
terest is indicated (and this is not undesirable since human minds 
may change many times as horizons broaden during the first 

45 



months of college experience) sequence courses in one of the lab- 
oratory sciences: biology, chemistry, geology and physics; or soci- 
ology, economics or speech may be elected. Business students 
usually elect Science Survey, sociology or economics. 

The Requirement in English Composition 

In cases where deficiency in the use of English is indicated in 
the incoming student's past record, he will be required to enroll in 
a non-credit course, English 50, Remedial Enghsh. In addition, all 
students will be expected to maintain a high level of proficiency 
in the use of English throughout their college years. Every stu- 
dent is required to attain a satisfactory score on an English pro- 
ficiency examination to be administered in the second semester 
of the sophomore year. 

Foreign Language Requirement 

All students who are candidates for the Bachelor of Arts de- 
gree must meet the requirement of four semesters of one of the 
following foreign languages: French, German, Greek, Russian or 
Spanish. Students may waive the first two semesters of the foreign 
language requirement and be admitted to intermediate studies if: 

a. They have demonstrated a proficiency in the language by: (1) 
offering a satisfactory score in the Language Achievement Test 
of the College Board Examinations for that language; or (2) 
achieving a satisfactory score in an examination in the language 
offered by the appropriate department of Lycoming College. 

b. They have passed an introductory course (two semesters) on 
the college level. 

Students offering foreign language for admission to Lycoming 
College who are seeking the Bachelor of Arts degree and who do 
not meet the above requirements will be required to take another 
language or take the offered language at the beginning level with- 
out credit. 



46 



Degrees 



Lycoming College confers either the Bachelor of Arts degree or 
the Bachelor of Science degree. Consistent with its aims of providing 
for the student the richest possible intellectual background for the 
Christian life, these degree programs are oriented toward an un- 
derstanding of areas of human experience in social science, natural 
science, humanities and fine arts. At the same time, every student 
is offered an opportunity for electing a major in some subject of 
concentration. For those students electing majors in business, medi- 
cal technology, secretarial science or who are pursuing a college 
degree program in conjunction with nurses' training, the Bachelor 
of Science degree is specified. For those students electing majors 
in other subject fields, the Bachelor of Arts degree is indicated. Those 
expecting to teach in the public schools may elect either degree.

requirements. 

47 



The remainder of the normal 120 semester hours required for 
graduation will be met by the election of courses upon recommen- 
dation of the major area advisor. The program of electives will 
be designed to fit the needs of individual students.

48 



Curricula 



Purposes of the Curricula 

Courses of study in Lycoming College are designed to fulfill 
two specific but interrelated purposes. The first is to acquaint 
the student with the liberal arts heritage of human civilization and 
the American nation, and the second is to provide him an oppor- 
tunity to explore from an elementary to an advanced level various 
subject matter fields that may fit him for a life's vocation or direct 
him toward professional or graduate schools. 

The curricula are organized so that the basic purposes may 
be fulfilled simultaneously within the normal 120 semester hours 
(8 semesters) of college work. 

The Departmental Major 

Electing a major in college work depends upon a variety of 
factors. Preparation for a specific vocation will very often deter- 
mine the major. But for the student who does not have a specific 
vocational aim, the choice of a major, which can be deferred until 
the beginning of the junior year in some cases, must depend 
upon other factors. Not the least important of these are the stu- 
dent's interest and aptitude. Every effort will be made through 
the counselling service ofi^ered by the College to determine the 
range of interests and aptitudes and thereby enable the student 
to come to a decision that will be best for him. 

Because education is an ongoing process that does not end at 
the completion of four years of college work, the student is en- 
couraged, when aptitude and ability indicate probable success, to 
consider the opportunities available through graduate and pro- 
fessional studies. Listed below are a number of professional and 
graduate areas for which preparation may be secured at Lycoming 
College. 

Programs of Study: Bachelor of Arts Degree 

Complete four-year schedules for every major and every cur- 
riculum wath detailed statements of required and recommended 
courses are available on request from the Director of Admissions 

49 



or the Registrar, Lycoming College, Williamsport, Pennsylvania. 
In addition to those departmental majors listed under degree 
requirements above, the following curricula are also offered. In gen- 
eral, these curricula involve major work in one or two departments. 
Their course requirements differ somewhat from the normal de- 
partmental major. 



American Civilization Major 

Recognizing the rich, intellectual heritage associated with 
the founding and subsequent development of the American 
nation, the Departments of English and History in Lycoming 
College have established a combined English-History curriculum 
which focuses attention upon American civilization. Here the 
uniqueness of American democracy, cradled and nurtured on this 
continent, is stressed throughout. In order to achieve the deepest 
insight into the American scene, both historical and contemporary, 
the curriculum includes, in addition to those freshman and sopho- 
more history and English requirements, twenty-four hours of 300- 
and 400- level English and history courses including History 321-322, 
American Social and Intellectual History, six advanced hours 
in American literature and not more than nine advanced hours in 
either subject. Students desiring a thorough background in Ameri- 
can civilization in preparation for graduate work, the Christian 
ministry, civil or foreign service or teaching will find this a most 
attractive and exciting curriculum. 



Preparation for Dental School 

At least three years of pre-dental study are suggested before 
entry into a college of dentistry. However, many students prefer 
to defer their matriculation in a dental college until they have 
earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. The pre-dental curriculum is 
organized around the basic courses in biology, chemistry and phy- 
sics. Electing a major in one of the natural sciences is the usual 
procedure. The student should consult the catalogue of the col- 
lege of dentistry to which he expects to apply so that all courses 
specifically required by that college of dentistry may be included 
in a well-tailored program at Lycoming College. The modern prac- 
titioner of dentistry is not just a dentist. He is a human being 
dealing with other human personalities and as such must be con- 
versant in a great variety of human experiences. For this reason, 

50 



the pre-dental curriculum will be liberally sprinkled with courses 
from virtually all areas of academic work. In addition to the 
science courses, therefore, the pre-dental student will include in 
his curriculum courses from the fine arts, humanities and social 
sciences, as well as a foreign language. 

Cooperative Curriculum in Engineering 

Consistent with increased attention being given nationally to 
engineering education, Lycoming College offers a cooperative cur- 
riculum combining the manifold advantages of a small liberal 
arts college with the training to be secured at an engineering 
school. By arrangement with Bucknell University and The Penn- 
sylvania State University, the College offers a five-year program 
the first three years of which are spent at Lycoming and the final 
two at the engineering school. Upon completion of the first year at 
the engineering school, the student's record will be sent to Ly- 
coming College, and if the work is satisfactory, Lycoming Col- 
lege will award the Bachelor of Arts degree. Upon the completion 
of the five-year program of studies, a Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering is awarded by the engineering school. Combined pro- 
grams offer an opportunity for completion of studies in the follow- 
ing areas: Bucknell University: chemical, civil, electrical, or me- 
chanical engineering; The Pennsylvania State University: aero- 
nautical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical or sanitary engi- 
neering. 

Prescribed work at Lycoming includes, in addition to the de- 
gree requirements outlined above, courses in chemistry, mathe- 
matics and physics. Because the demands of the engineering cur- 
ricula may differ somewhat, a program of studies at Lycoming Col- 
lege will be designed for each student when his plans as to type 
of engineering program preferred have been finally fixed The 
Director of the Division of Natural Science or a member of the 
teaching staff in the physical sciences will aid each cooperative 
engineering student in planning his program. 

Cooperative Curriculum in Forestry 

Lycoming College offers a program for forestry students which 
combines a strong liberal arts and science background with pro- 
fessional training in forestry at the Duke School of Forestry, Duke 
University, Durham, North Carolina. 

The program as established is of five years' duration. A stu- 
dent electing to pursue this program of study will spend three 

51 



years at Lycoming where he will meet the liberal arts degree 
requirements, including such subjects as English, a foreign lan- 
guage, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and economics. 

Upon satisfactory completion of these three years' work at 
Lycoming College, the student wiU apply for admission to the 
Duke School of Forestry for one summer and two years of training 
in forestry. At the end of his first year at Duke, his record will 
be sent to Lycoming College. If the work be satisfactory for this 
fourth year in college, Lycoming will award the Bachelor of 
Arts degree. Upon the satisfactory completion of the second 
year in forestry school, the professional degree, Master of Fores- 
try, will be awarded by Duke University. 



Preparation for Law School 

Many colleges of law require a Bachelor of Arts degree 
for admission. The four-year degree program in pre-law at Ly- 
coming College provides a background for the prospective student 
of law. Requirements include courses of enriching depth in poli- 
tical science, accounting and history, but also specified is a wide 
range of subject matter, designed to acquaint the student with 
the vast scope of human experience. Students may expect to major 
in economics, history, political science, social science or related 
fields as they prepare for matriculation in law school. Individual 
programs are tailored to fit the student's needs as well as to meet 
the specific requirements of the law school to which he applies for 
admission. 



Preparation for Medical School 

This curriculum is organized around a solid foundation of the 
basic courses in biology, chemistry and physics. Pre-medical stu- 
dents usually major in one of the natural sciences. The student 
should be aware of the specific pre-medical course requirements 
demanded by the medical school to which he will apply so that 
all such requirements can be fitted properly into his curriculum at

Preparation for Theological Seminary 
(Christian Ministry) 

Young men and women called to the Christian ministry or re- 
lated vocations will find the pre-ministerial curriculum at Lycoming 
College an exciting and challenging opportunity. Basic courses 
as specified by the American Association of Theological Schools 
are virtually identical with the program of courses required for 
a Bachelor of Arts degree at Lycoming College. Such courses offer 
a wide range of subject matter offering manifold opportunities 
for the eager pre-ministerial student to acquaint himself with the 
broad scope of human experience. Preparation for seminary in- 
cludes earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in one of 
a variety of fields such as English, history, American civilization, 
philosophy or a social science. So that every student may have a 
curriculum designed to fit his individual needs, the offerings in 
the junior and senior year are largely elective. However, the choice 
of electives will depend upon the specific requirements of the theo- 
logical school in which the student expects to matriculate. 



Curricula for Divisional Majors 

a. The major in physical science consists of (1) first level courses 
in chemistry (101-102), mathematics (101-102), physics (101- 
102), geology (101-102), and (2) two years beyond the in- 
troductory courses in chemistry, mathematics, or physics. 

b. The major in social science consists of ( 1 ) 24 semester hours 
in one field of concentration and (2) 18 semester hours distri-

Curriculum in Religion and Religious Education 

Any student desiring extensive study in Biblical history and 
literature, the historical development of Christianity, and Chris- 
tian doctrine, may major in religion. A qualified student planning to 
enter the vocation of religious education should, besides major- 
ing in religion, elect 18-21 semester hours in prescribed psycho- 
logy, education, sociology, and church music courses. This pro- 
gram of study, completely within the liberal arts curriculum, is 
to qualify graduates for work as Educational Assistants, or after 

53 



graduate study in a theological seminary, as Directors of Chris- 
tian Education. Interested students, or prospective students, are 
invited to contact Mr. Ramsey of the Department of Religion for 
further information concerning the opportunities, responsibiHties

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 reason- 
able limits by grants from the public treasury; independent col- 
leges achieve this by voluntary contributions supplemented by 
income from their invested endowment funds. At Lycoming Col- 
lege, 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 compe- 
tent instruction. 

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 Dormi- 
tory, and the Fraternity Houses are $125.00 per semester. In Old 
Main — $100.00 per semester. Board is $225.00 per semester (the 
academic year comprises two semesters of approximately sixteen 
weeks each.) If, for justifiable reason, it is impossible for a stu- 
dent 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 
13 to 16 credit hours of class or laboratoiy (exclusive of Physical 
Education) 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 semes- 
ter hours are charged at the rate of $20.00 for each semester hour 
credit. Additional detailed information will be furnished by the 
Treasurer's ofiice 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 

106 



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 matriculate, 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. Deposits are credited to the stu- 
dent's account, but are not refundable after August 1. 



Books and Supplies 

A modem 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 sowewhat 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).

ule of payments as listed, arrangements may be made with the College 
Treasurer, for the monthly payment of college fees. Additional information 
concerning partial payments may be obtained from the Treasurer, or Director 
of Admissions. 

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 
minors, the approval of the parent or guardian is required before the with- 
drawal is approved and before any refund is made. 

Room rentals have been fixed on a semester basis. Consequently, stu- 
dents leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entitled to 
any refund on room rent. Board will be pro-rated by the week over the period 
of attendance. 

Refund of tuition will be made to students who withdraw voluntarily 
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 
tlie 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 carmot be refunded for any reason whatever. 

Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees 

A student vdll not be registered for courses in a new semester if his 
account for previous attendance has not been settled. 

No grades will be issued, no diploma, certificate, transcript of credits, or 
certification of withdrawal in good standing will be granted to any student 
until a satisfactory settlement of all obligations has been made. 

Damage Charges 

Wherever possible, damage to dormitory property will be charged to 
the person or persons directly responsible. Damage and breakage occurring

Halls and bathroom damage will be the responsibility of all students of 
the section where damage occurs. Actual costs of repairs will be charged.

Church to children of ministers and ministerial students. Consideration is

The college reserves tlie right to withdraw any grant from a student 
whose scholarship or behavior is unsatifactory. 

No grant is allowed on Music and Art, whether taken as extra-subjects 
in connection with a regular course or whether the student is majoring in one 
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. 

There are also loan funds in the Philadelphia and the Central Penn- 
sylvania Conferences of The Methodist Church for students from these con- 
ferences on practically the same terms as above.
