THE OGLETHORPE IDEA 

The Oglethorpe idea is to forge the strongest possible link 
between the "academic" and "practical," between "human un- 
derstanding" and "know-how," between "culture" and "profici- 
ency," between past and present. We are persuaded that there 
is ultimately no contradiction between the concepts represented 
in each of these usually divorced pairs. 

There can be no basic disagreement among educators and 
laymen about the common elements of the student's real needs 
and interests. He is to learn as much as possible about the 
principles, forces, and laws influencing or governing Nature, 
including human nature and human associations; to learn to take 
account of these not only for their own sake but for growth, 
guidance and direction for himself and others; to express his 
deepest individuality in the work or calling most appropriate to 
his talents; and to discover his proper place, role, and function 
in the complex relationships of modern living. 

Living should not be an escape from work. Education should 
therefore encompass the twin aims of making a life and making 
a living. But inescapably he is part and parcel of society. He 
fulfills himself by the measure in which he contributes to the 
happiness and progress of his fellows. Education, as an institu- 
tion of society, has a social obligation. It cannot neglect either 
the individual or the community without damage to both. The 
social order at its best is best for the individual; the individual 
at his best is best for society. The business of education is to 
strive for this optimum. 

What difference should an education make? There are people, 
deficient in formal schooling, who are happy and useful. They 
understand and get along well with their neighbors. They are an 
influence for good in their community and earn a living by honest 
effort. Any truly educated man displays the same traits. The 
difference is in degree rather than kind. 

Whereas it is usual for people to understand their fellows, how 
much wider should be the sympathies of the educated man! 
His contacts go beyond the living and embrace the seers of all 
the ages, who as his companions should inform his mind and 
enlarge his vision. 



10 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

Never before have people been so alive to the necessity of 
mastering rather than being mastered by the economic and scien- 
tific forces at work in our world. Creative brains and individual in- 
itiative, tempered by a strong sense of social responsibility, are the 
only sources of payrolls compatible with a free society, and im- 
proving living standard, and a better way of life. Where else can 
we look for this creative urge other than to adequate education 
of qualified talent! 

We make no claim that formal education inevitably bestows 
these benefits. We insist that it can. If that be true, how may 
the mark be reached? We shall always have to remind ourselves 
as teachers that education is a difficult art. The pitfalls we would 
shun are hard to escape. Of all people, the teacher must remain 
the most teachable. The quest for wisdom is never-ending. We, 
too, must continually grow in order to stimulate growth in those 
who come to us to learn. We shall also have to remind ourselves 
that subjects are merely the means; the objects of instruction 
are the persons taught. We must be forever mindful that edu- 
cation, in order to be true to itself, must be a progressive experi- 
ence for the learner, in which interest gives rise to inquiry, inquiry 
is pursued to mastery, and mastery at one point occasions new 
interests in others. The cycle is never closed, but is a spiral 
which always returns upon itself at some higher level of insight. 
Growth in everything which is human must remain the dominant 
objective for the individual and for society. 

We therefore stand for a program of studies which makes sense 
from first to last, which hangs together, and which promotes this 
desired result. Not only in vocational training but also in the 
education of the human personality, the materials of instruction 
must have a beginning, point in a definite direction, and prepare 
for all that ensues. We necessarily make provision for and give 
scope to diversified talents in preparation for varied careers. 
But this much we all have in common: each man has to live with 
himself and all have to live with their fellows. Living in commun- 
ity, with human understanding, involves arts in which we are all 
equally concerned. 



HISTORY OF OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

Oglethorpe's history dates back to 1835 when a group of 
Georgia Presbyterians, influenced by the example of Princeton 
University, secured a charter for the operation of a church-sup- 
ported university in the academic pattern of the nineteenth cen- 
tury. Actual operations commenced in 1838 at Midway, a small 
community near Milledgeville, at that time the capitol of the state. 

For nearly three decades after its founding, the university 
steadily grew in stature and influence. Its president during most 
of that time, Samuel K. Talmage, provided gifted leadership and, 
at the same time, gathered about him a faculty of unusual ability, 
at least two of whom would achieve real distinction: James Wood- 
row, an uncle of Woodrow Wilson and the first teacher in Georgia 
to hold the Ph.D., and Joseph LeConte, destined to world fame 
for his work in the field of geology. 

Oglethorpe alumni went forth in those years to play roles of 
importance in various fields. Perhaps the best-known of her grad- 
uates was the poet Sidney Lanier, a member of the Class of 1860, 
who remarked shortly before his death that the greatest intellect- 
ual impulse of his life had come to him during his college days 
at Oglethorpe. 

But the life and service of the school were suddenly cut short 
in the 1860's as Oglethorpe became a casualty of war. Her stu- 
dents marched away to become Confederate soldiers; her endow- 
ment at length was lost in Confederate bonds; her buildings were 
converted to military use as a barracks and hospital. In a sense, 
her fate became bound up with that of the Lost Cause. 

After the close of the conflict an effort was made to revive the 
institution, first at Midway and then by re-location in Atlanta. 
However, the ravages of war, together with the dislocations of 
Reconstruction, posed obstacles too great to overcome, and in 
1872 Oglethorpe closed its doors for a second, and seemingly 
final, time. 

But three decades later, thanks largely to the determined 
energy and vision of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, the school was revived, 
chartered in 1913, and moved to its present location on the north- 
ern edge of metropolitan Atlanta. The cornerstone of the first 



12 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

building was laid in 1915 in a ceremony witnessed by members 
of the classes of 1860 and 1861; symbolically, thus, the old and 
the new were linked. 

From then until his resignation in 1944, President Jacobs 
became and remained the guiding spirit of the endeavor. He de- 
veloped a number of ideas and enterprises which brought nation- 
al, and even international, recognition to the school. Most notable 
among these were the establishment of a campus radio station 
as early as 1931, and the completion in 1940 of the Crypt of 
Civilization to preserve for posterity a cross-section of twentieth- 
century life. 

Still a new era opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1944 
when Dr. Philip Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a 
group of faculty associates, initiated a new and exciting approach 
to undergraduate education called the "Oglethorpe Idea." As 
described more fully in the preceding section, the new departure 
was founded on the conviction that education should encompass 
the twin aims of making a life and making a living, and that to- 
ward these ends a program of studies should be developed which 
made sense from first to last and which meaningfully hung to- 
gether. 

The last twenty years of Oglethorpe's history have revolved 
around the central issue of finding more effective means of 
answering the challenge posed by these fundamental purposes. 
At the same time, though the College remains sympathetic to- 
ward all religions and encourages its students to affiliate with a 
local church of their own choosing or synagogue, all formal sup- 
port from church bodies was discontinued. Today Oglethorpe 
stands as a wholly private and non-sectarian institution of higher 
learning. 

In 1965 began still another chapter in the history of the school. 
As part of its steadfast aim to become "a small college, super- 
latively good," the institution formally changed its name from 
Oglethorpe University to Oglethorpe College — a change more pre- 
cisely reflecting its nature as well as its purposes. 

The College has also developed a program of physical expan- 
sion to keep pace with its academic growth. Five new dormitories 
and a new student union building were opened in the spring of 
1968. The new complex is designed not only to add additional 
space to campus facilities but also to blend architecturally with 
the existing pattern of buildings on the campus.

To all of this, it may be finally added, Oglethorpe enjoys the 
great asset of location in Atlanta — one of the great metropolitan 
centers of the South and one of the most rapidly developing in 
the nation. A city blending the graciousness of the Old South 
with the social progress of the New, Atlanta is a key center of 
transportation for the entire Southeast, with excellent service by 
air, rail, and bus; it is also a hub of the modern highway system 
being built through the region. With a metropolitan population 
of well over a million, an ideal location in the foothills of the Blue 
Ridge Mountains, and a temperate climate throughout the year, 
the city offers many attractions and cultural opportunities to the 
Oglethorpe undergraduate as a part of his whole development. 




ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE 
APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION 

Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students from 
all sections of this country as well as from abroad as candidates 
for degrees. It is the policy of the Admissions Committee to select 
for admission to the College those applicants who present the 
strongest evidence of purpose, maturity, scholastic ability, and 
potential for the caliber of college work expected at Oglethorpe. 
In making its judgments, the Committee considers the nature of 
the student's high school program, his grades, the recommenda- 
tions of his counsellors and teachers, and his scores on aptitude 
tests. 

The candidate for admission as a freshman must present a 
satisfactory high-school program. In addition, he must submit 
satisfactory scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College 
Entrance Examination Board. (Scores of the Florida and Iowa 
State Tests will be acceptable if the applicant has taken one of 
these as a result of statewide policy; also, scores of the American 
College Testing Program may be used by those unable to present 
scores on the SAT.) 



It is to the applicant's advantage to take the Scholastic Aptitude 
Test as early as possible during his senior year in high school. 
Details concerning the program can be obtained from high school 
counsellors, or by writing the College Entrance Examination Board, 
Box 592, Princeton, N. J. 08540. 

The Oglethorpe application form contains a list of the materials 
which must be submitted by the applicant. No application can 
be considered and acted upon until all the items indicated have 
been received. Applications will be considered in order of com- 
pletion, and the applicant will be notified of the decision of the 
Committee on Admissions as soon as action has been taken. 

Though the exact date will vary from semester to semester, 
generally the deadline by which admissions will be closed will be 
announced by the College. 



16 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

The College invites and urges those students who have taken 
the Advanced Placement examinations of the College Entrance 
Examination Board to submit their scores for possible considera- 
tion toward college credit. The general policy of Oglethorpe to- 
ward such scores is the following: academic credit will be given 
in the appropriate area to students presenting Advanced Place- 
ment grades of 4 or 5; exemption but not credit will be given 
in the appropriate area from basic courses for students present- 
ing a grade of 3; neither credit nor exemption will be given for 
grades of 1 or 2; maximum credit to be allowed to any student 
for Advanced Placement scores will be thirty semester hours. 

COLLEGE LEVEL TESTING PROGRAM 

The tests are administered by centers across the nation under 
the control of the College Entrance Examination Board, Box 592, 
Princeton, New Jersey, 08540. At present, examinations are 
given in: 

General Examinations Subject Examinations 

English Composition American Government 

Humanities Analysis of Literature 

Mathematics English Composition 

Natural Sciences General Chemistry 

Social Sciences Introductory Calculus 

Introductory Economics 
Introductory Sociology 
Tests and Measurements 
Western Civilization 
Educational Psychology 
History of American Education 
Marketing 

Money and Banking 
Statistics 

Examinations scores above the norms established will benefit 
the student in two ways: 1. Credit for the number of hours normal- 
ly granted in the course will be given, and 2. Course requirements 
where they exist for these courses will be fulfilled. 



18 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Applicants for transfer from other recognized institutions of 
higher learning are welcomed at Oglethorpe, provided they are 
in good standing at the institution last attended. They are 
expected to follow regular admir~ions procedures and will be 
notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee in the reg- 
ular way. 

Oglethorpe College will accept as transfer credit courses com- 
parable to the courses we offer which are applicable to a liberal 
arts or a science degree. A two year residence requirement is 
in effect; therefore, two years of transfer work is the maximum 
credit given. Acceptable work must be shown on an official tran- 
script and must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. 

SPECIAL AND TRANSIENT STUDENTS 

In addition to regular students, a limited number of special 
and transient students will be accepted. 

Special students are defined by the College as those not work- 
ing toward an Oglethorpe degree; they are limited to a maximum 
of five semester courses, after which they must apply for a change 
of status to that of regular student or be requested to withdraw 
from the College. 

Transient students may take a maximum of two semesters of 
work here, provided that they secure a letter from the dean of 
their original institution certifying that they are in good standing 
there and that the original institution will accept for transfer 
credit the academic work done by the student at Oglethorpe. 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE 

All correspondence concerning admissions should be ad- 
dressed to the Director of Admissions, Oglethorpe College, At- 
lanta, Georgia. After receiving the application form, the appli- 
cant should fill it out and return it with an application fee of 
$20; this fee is not refundable. Admissions office 404-233-6864. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS 

Oglethorpe offers the worthy student many opportunities for 
obtaining assistance in financing his undergraduate education. 
These opportunities are provided under conditions which give a 
reasonable guarantee to the applicants and the College that they 
will go to those persons best able to benefit from them. 

The many sources of revenue made available to the Scholar- 
ship and Loan Committee include the Lowry Memorial Scholar- 



ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE 



19 



ship Fund, the National Defense Student Loan Program, the 
United Student Aid Loan Fund, the Educational Opportunity 
Grants, the L. "Pop" Crowe Memorial Loan Fund, and the Athletic 
Grants-in-Aid Program. Additionally, Oglethorpe participates in 
the Federal College Work Study Program. 

Beginning July 1, Oglethorpe will participate in the Educational 
Opportunities Grant up to one-half of cost for those in extreme 
need. 

Oglethorpe also has available loans at small interest rates 
through an educational loan institution: The Tuition Plan, Inc. 
This plan enables parents to pay for tuition and other academic 
fees on a monthly basis. 

Other funds are made available to the Committee by interested 
persons, groups, and business firms from time to time. 

Except in the case of loans, all assistance funds are granted 
by the Committee as outright gifts to the student in the form of 
credits entered on the semester bills of the College. 

For further information, contact Mrs. Julia McHugh, Director, 
Student Aid and Placement Office, Oglethorpe College. 




ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 
CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The College recognizes attendance at classes as the responsi- 
bility of the student. Students are held accountable for all work 
missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is determined 
by each instructor for his own courses. Such regulations are 
published and distributed by each professor at the beginning 
of each term. 

GRADES 

A letter grading system is used. The range of A-D represents 
passing work; any grade below D is regarded as a failure. Stu- 
dents withdrawing from a course before the end of the semester 
are given a "W" or a "WF", depending upon the circumstances 
of the withdrawal. Students who do not meet all the requirements 
of a course are given an "I" (incomplete) at the end of the semes- 
ter. If the requirements are met by mid-semester of the next en- 
rolled term, the "I" is replaced by a regular grade. If they are not 
met within this time, the grade automatically becomes an "F". 
Grade structure and quality points are as follows: 



A Superior 






4.0 


B Good 






3.0 


C Satisfactory 






2.0 


D Passing 






1.0 


F Failure

P Passing (used

teaching and some music courses.) 

MINIMUM ACADEMIC AVERAGE 

Though the grade of D is regarded as passing, the College 
believes that students, in order to graduate, must exhibit more 
ability than that required by the lowest passing mark. Therefore, 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 21 

a student, in order to graduate from Oglethorpe, must compile 
an over-all minimum average of 2.2. No student will be allowed 
to graduate unless this minimum is met. 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of minimum 
averages has been established. Freshmen are required to main- 
tain a cumulative average of at least 1.8 in their course work; 
sophomores of at least 2.0 and juniors and seniors of at least 2.2. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Minimum requirements for graduation consist of the following: 
forty semester courses (or their equivalent for transfer students) 
totaling at least 123 hours; a cumulative grade average of at least 
2.2, at least two semesters of physical education (unless ex- 
empted by the Academic Dean); and the last four semesters to 
be spent as a registered student at Oglethorpe. Graduate Record 
Examination (GRE) must also be completed in two sections 
(aptitude and advanced) prior to graduation. All graduating 
Seniors must file application for diploma with the College Reg- 
istrar. 

DEGREES 

Oglethorpe offers three degrees to those meeting the necessary 
requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bach- 
elor of Science in Medical Technology. Under the Bachelor of 
Arts, majors programs are offered in the following areas: Busi- 
ness Administration, Economics, Elementary Education, Second- 
ary Education (with concentrations available in English, French, 
General Studies, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies), Eng- 
lish, French, History, Philosophy, Political Studies, Psychology, 
and Sociology. 

Under the Bachelor of Science, majors programs are offered 
in the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and 
Physics. 

Under certain conditions, it is also possible for a student to 
receive a degree from Oglethorpe under "professional option." 
Through this arrangement and in accord with regulations of the 
College, the student may transfer to a recognized professional 
institution — such as law school, dental school, or medical school 
— at the end of his junior year and then, after one year in the 
professional school, receive his degree from Oglethorpe. Stu- 
dents interested in this possibility should consult closely with 
their advisors to make certain that all conditions are met. 






22 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Freshmen who fail to maintain a cumulative average of at least 

1.8, sophomores of at least 2.0, and juniors and seniors of at 
least 2.2, are placed on probation for the following term. If during 
that term they do not substantially improve their scholastic aver- 
age, they will be dismissed from the College. 

First semester freshmen receiving grades of less than D in all 
subjects will be dismissed, as will students in the sophomore, 
junior, and senior classes who fail to maintain at least a 1.0 
cumulative average. 

All students on Academic Probation at the end of the spring 
semester must attend at least one session of summer school un- 
less exempted for cause by the Dean of the College. 

STUDENT'S CLASSIFICATION 

For administrative and other official and extra-official purposes, 
students are classified according to the number of semester hours 
successfully completed. Classification is as follows: 

— 30 hours — Freshman 61-90 — Junior 

31 — 60 hours — Sophomore 91 above — Senior 

NORMAL ACADEMIC LOAD 

A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of no less 
than four courses each semester, but generally 5 courses are 
taken, giving the student a total of 12 to 16 semester hours each 
term. Regular students in the day classes are expected to carry 
a normal load and to pay for a full schedule of courses. No pro- 
visions exist in the College for payment of reduced load except 
transient and night students. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

Students who earn a minimum average of 3.3 or better in any 
given semester except the summer term for an academic load of 
at least five courses are given the distinction of being placed on 
the Dean's List. 

DEGREES WITH HONORS 

Degrees with honors are awarded as follows: for a cumulative 
average of 3.5, the degree cum laude; for a cumulative average 
3.7, the degree magna cum laude; for a cumulative average of 

3.9, the degree summa cum laude. 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 



23 




HONORS ORGANIZATIONS 

Phi Society: The Phi Society is a Freshman Honor Society rec- 
ognizing those Freshmen who have achieved high academic per- 
formance during their first year of study. 

Membership selection is made in the third week of October 
each year. Any full-time student who has earned a 3.25 accum- 
ulative average in his freshman year and having no more than 
three courses with a grade of "C" is eligible for membership. 



STUDENT LIFE 
ORIENTATION 

At the beginning of each semester new students will be in- 
volved in an orientation program, under the general supervision 
of the Dean of Students. Orientation activities are planned to 
introduce the student to both academic and social life at Ogle- 
thorpe. Orientation group leaders from among the upperclass- 
men serve as guides and counsellors during the period. Follow- 
ing orientation, the student is then assigned to a faculty advisor 
who aids him in planning his academic program. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL DRESS AND GROOMING 

Each individual has the freedom to dress and groom as he 
chooses, and to select the school of his choice; however, these 
freedoms are not without their responsibilities and consequences. 

Institutions of higher education have their own personalities; 
hence, they have the freedom to select the standards they want 
for students who voluntarily elect to attend. When a student 
voluntarily elects to attend Oglethorpe College, a private institu- 
tion, he represents not only himself but also the student body, 
the College, and in some measure, the community in which the 
College has such deep roots. 

The College takes the position that all students are expected 
to dress and groom as mature, responsible adults, as ladies and 
gentlemen. Dress and grooming are expected to be appropriate 
to the occasion and in keeping with the positions of leadership 
and responsibility in society. 

Individuals who are unwilling to meet high standards of dress 
and grooming should not apply to Oglethorpe College for admis- 
sion. 

Students who avoid these high standards or who deliberately 
ignore them, either directly or indirectly, shall be terminated 
from the College immediately. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES 

All full-time day students are required to subscribe to the 
Student Health and Insurance Plan provided by the College, un- 
less married or residing with parents. 



26 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

The College maintains a small campus infirmary staffed by a 
registered nurse. The infirmary operates on a regular schedule, 
and provides basic first aid service and limited medical assistance 
for students covered by the student insurance plan. 

A physician visits the infirmary periodically to make general 
diagnosis and treatment. In the event additional or major medi- 
cal care is required, the student patient will be referred to medi- 
cal specialists and hospitals in the area with which the health 
service maintains a working relationship. 

When it is determined that a student's physical or emotional 
health is detrimental to his academic studies, group-living situa- 
tion, or other relationships at the College or in the community, 
he will be requested to withdraw. Re-admission to the College 
will be contingent upon acceptable verification that the student 
is ready to return. The final decision will rest with the College. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL CONDUCT AND RESPONSIBILITY: 
THE ROLE OF THE COLLEGE AND THE STUDENT 

Oglethorpe College takes the position that it is deeply con- 
cerned with the total development of the individual as a com- 
petent student and as a highly responsible citizen both on the 
campus and in the community. The College's high standards of 
personal conduct and responsibility are an expression of its con- 
fidence in each student's potential as a human being; however, 
each student must be as willing to accept adult consequences 
as he is insistent upon being granted adult freedom of decision 
and action. 

Unfortunately, neither knowledge and wisdom nor knowledge 
and integrity are synonomous; therefore, a firm grasp of acad- 
emic studies will not in itself be an assurance that a student 
is profiting fully from his college experience. 

Individuals who do not desire to accept either this view of the 
College's responsibility or its high standards should not apply to 
the College for admission. Accepted students who demonstrate 
their unwillingness to meet high standards will be terminated

Valuable educational experiences may be gained through active 
participation in approved campus activities and organizations.

zations and to the extent that such involvement does not deter 
them from high academic achievement. Majors are especially 
encouraged to join professional organizations associated with 
their interests and goals. 

Information concerning College activities and organizations is 
contained in the Oglethorpe College Student Handbook. 

HONOR SYSTEM 

At Oglethorpe the Honor System is an integral part of college 
life. Students are on their honor to respect the regulations of 
the College and to abide by the provisions of the Honor Code. 
The Honor System is supervised by a student Honor Council, 
acting with the counsel of a faculty advisor. 

FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 

College social fraternities and sororities were reinstituted in 
the College in 1967. At present, seven local chapters exist with 
several of them in colony status with national social fraternities. 
These social organizations contribute substantially to the spiritual 
and social betterment of the member and develop college into a 
richer, fuller experience. Membership in these organizations is 
voluntary and subject to regulations imposed by the groups, by 
the College Interfraternity Council, or by the Student Government 
Association. 

ATHLETICS 

In addition to a well-rounded program of intramural sports, 
intercollegiate competition is carried on in soccer, basketball, 
tennis, baseball, and rifle and pistol shooting. Students with 
athletic skills are invited and urged to participate in any of these. 

COLLEGE RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS 

Ability and willingness to room and board in College-operated 
facilities are conditions of acceptance and/ or continued attend- 
ance. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, in that order, 
are required to room and board to the extent that spaces are 
available. 

Exceptions: 

1. Married students 

2. Students residing with parents in Atlanta and the surround- 
ing area. 



STUDENT LIFE 29 

RECALL OF STUDENTS EXCUSED TO RESIDE OFF CAMPUS 

When spaces are insufficient to house all students, seniors and 
juniors, in that order, will be eligible to reside off campus under 
one of the following provisions: 

1. Subject to recall to the campus as soon as a vacancy oc- 
curs. 

2. Subject to recall at the end of the off-campus rental period 
or within 15 days, whichever is sooner. 

3. Subject to recall at the end of the semester. 

BOARDING REQUIREMENTS 

All resident students are required to board whether initially 
assigned to the residence halls or recalled to the campus. Ex- 
ceptions or adjustments will not be granted for personal, relig- 
ious, medical, or employment reasons. 

The semester boarding charge covers the period from the day 
following regular registration through lunch of the day following 
the last day of final examinations. The boarding charge includes 
Thanksgiving vacation, but does not include Christmas vacation 
and Spring recess. Resident seniors whose names appear on 
the Registrar's official June graduation list are entitled to board 
through lunch of the day following graduation. 

During periods not covered by the boarding fee, students may 
use the cafeteria on a cash basis. Students are urged to review 
the College Calendar in order to anticipate their food and other 
expenses during interim periods. 

FINANCING 

Students and parents desiring to pay expenses in installments 
are advised to investigate the Tuition Plan, Michigan Avenue, 
Chicago, Illinois, United Student Aid Funds, Inc.; National De- 
fense Education Act Loan Funds; private banking or other sources. 
Information may be secured by writing to the Student Financial 
Aids Officer, Oglethorpe College. Continuing students should 
complete all arrangements for meeting College requirements well 
in advance of registration so that they will not be delayed. 

All balances and new charges are payable at registration. Fail- 
ure to make the necessary payments at registration may cause 



30 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 




the student to lose his place in the College. Students employing 
Tuition Plan, or any other source of funds, are not exempted 
from paying deposits by the deadline dates specified in the 
College Bulletin. 

Continuing students are not permitted to register until all previ- 
ous debts have been cleared with the Business Office. Grades, 
transcripts, and diplomas are withheld until all accounts, includ- 
ing institutional damages and fines, are paid in full. 

Students should have sufficient funds to purchase books and 
supplies directly from the bookstore. 



WITHDRAWALS 

Students who find it necessary to drop courses or change 
courses must secure an approved drop slip from the Registrar. 



STUDENT LIFE 31 

REFUNDS 

Boarding students suspended from the cafeteria, College Cen- 
ter, or other facilities or activities, are not entitled to refunds or 
credits for the period of such suspension. Refunds on all involun- 
tary and voluntary withdrawals will be made, subject to the con- 
ditions of the voluntary tuition insurance plan which the student 
may elect to take. 

Refunds under the Tuition Refund Plan may be withheld until 
the student identification card is surrendered to the Business 
Office. Keys and other College property must also be returned 
prior to the issuance of refunds. 

FINANCING 

The applicant upon receipt of notice of acceptance, should 
forward an advance deposit of $200 by the date specified in 
the acceptance letter. The deposit will apply against the total 
charges at the time the student registers for classes. It is not 
refundable. Continuing students are required to pay $200 ad- 
vance deposit at the time of early registration for the fall term. 
Registration is therefore contingent upon the deposit being paid. 

FEES AND COSTS 

The Comprehensive Fee is as follows: 

Residents $2,511.00 

Non-Residents $1,486.00 

For students living on campus, the Comprehensive Fee covers: 
the cost of tuition, laboratory fees, room, board, institutional 
fees, personal evaluation, placement and counselling. These 
same items, with the exception of room and board, are also 
included in the Comprehensive Fee for students not residing 
on campus. The cost of books, however, is not included in the 
Comprehensive Fee. 

The only standard charges not included in the Comprehensive 
Fee are the following: 

1. STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE: Health Insurance is 
handled separately since it is deductible on personal in- 
come tax returns. The cost is approximately $29.50 per 



32 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

year. This health insurance is mandatory for dorm stu- 
dents. 

2. TUITION REFUND INSURANCE: Tuition Refund Insurance 
is optional. With it, the student or parent is assured the 
contracted amount of refund of charges whether a student 
withdraws voluntarily or involuntarily. Evening, special and 
transient students are not eligible for coverage under this 
plan. No other provision for refunds exists. 

3. STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE: Collected by the Student Gov- 
ernment Association — $30.00 per semester. 

4. GRADUATING SENIORS: Diploma Fee of $15.00. 

5. DAMAGE DEPOSIT: A $50.00 damage deposit is required 
of all boarding students. Any damages incurred are pay- 
able to the Business Office after costs for repairs are de- 
termined. Damages are not deducted from the $50.00 
deposit. The damage deposit is refunded at the end of 
the academic year. 

The semester tuition, after the $200 deposit has been cred- 
ited, is due prior to the student beginning classes. The spring

ter. The payment schedule is as follows:

THE "0" BOOK 

This is the student handbook prepared annually by the Student 
Council of Oglethorpe as a service to new students. It contains 
a great variety of helpful information designed to acquaint the 
student with all significant phases of college life at Oglethorpe. 

FINE ARTS SERIES 

Oglethorpe's Fine Arts Series brings to the campus a varied 
and balanced program which stresses human enjoyment of artistic 
excellence. This variety includes music, drama, literature, the 
film, and the dance, as well as the graphic arts. The programs 
are designed to acquaint the student with the range of the arts 
as well as with the individual forms. The movies, for example, 
are chosen from among those film classics which are not cur- 
rently available in the commercial theatre, and they reveal not 
only the high points of the film art but also its range and variety. 
In dance, music, and literature, the program brings to the campus 
individuals and groups chosen from outstanding living artists. 
There is no admission charge to any of these programs. 

In addition to the Fine Arts Series itself, the Faculty and Stu- 
dent Fine Arts Committee offers $250 in prizes to encourage the 




I 



34 OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 

student himself to explore the arts and to reward student achieve- 
ment in this area. For music, $100 in cash prizes is given an- 
nually; for poetry, $50; for short fiction, $50; and for painting, 
$50. The prize poems and short stories, and when possible prize 
paintings, are published in Prospect, the Oglethorpe literary mag- 
azine.

PLACEMENT SERVICE 

The College maintains a Placement Office to provide help to 
students in securing jobs during their college career. Because 
of Oglethorpe's location in the suburbs of the second fastest- 
growing city in America, students can easily obtain part-time 



36 



OGLETHORPE COLLEGE 




work. There are also some opportunities on campus for employ- 
ment in various jobs. Another function of this office is to aid our 
students in getting positions upon graduation. A register is kept 
of firms seeking our graduates, and every effort is made by the 
College to place students in areas and firms of their preference. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 
SEMESTER SYSTEM 

Oglethorpe College operates under the semester system during 
the academic year. Two summer sessions of five weeks each 
make up the summer schedule. 

EVENING PROGRAM 

As a service to the community, the College offers an evening 
program covering three terms per year: one during each semester 
and one during the summer. Classes meet two nights each week 
(Monday and Wednesday; Tuesday and Thursday) with three class 
periods each night. 

Effective in the Fall 1968, all night students (those completing 
50 percent or more of their Oglethorpe work in the night pro- 
gram) will be required to major in the General Studies Major 
Program. This program requires completion of the courses in- 
dicated elsewhere in this bulletin and a sufficient number of 
additional course hours up to the number prescribed for a degree. 
The degree granted will be the Bachelor of Arts-General Studies. 

Because of its flexibility, the General Studies program enables 
the student to concentrate in any selected program offered by 
the College. 

The General Studies Major is opened to day division students 
who may wish to pursue the program. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

The Department of Continuing Education acts as a community 
service in providing adult non-credit courses for interested peo- 
ple in the community and also operates the Evening Division 
degree-granting program. It is Oglethorpe's desire to ensure that 
its academic and physical facilities are made available to all 
mature adults who show a genuine interest in academics.

requisite core and major courses rests exclusively with the stu- 
dent. 

In addition to completing the core program, students normally 
are expected, no later than the beginning of their junior year, to 
choose a majors program and to fulfill the departmental regula- 
tions for the program. With some variation according to profes- 
sional departmental requirements, most students will take the 
core program during their freshman and sophomore years, and 
a majors program during their junior and senior years. 

The following are suggested programs of majors. In addition 
to the required core program, most of them include three levels 
of other courses: those prescribed for the major, directed elec- 
tees recommended as immediately related to the major, and free 
electives allowed* to enable the student to widen his intellectual 
interests. Variations of each program are possible, according to 
the particular needs of the student and the regulations of each 
department. Majors programs are offered in the following: 
Biology Foreign Languages Physics

DIVISION OF HUMANITIES 

To ensure the orderly completion of the program, the major 
should consult with the appropriate faculty member in the depart- 
ment or division at the time of his first registration. It is impor- 
tant that each major have his program fully planned from the 
outset so that he may be aware of departmental and divisional 
requirements and allowable substitutions and alternatives. Each 
major must complete the core requirements within the scope of 
their interpretation by responsible departmental or divisional ad- 
visors. In addition, each major must complete those department- 
al and divisional requirements as may apply to the specific degree.

METRO LIFE STUDIES

baccalaureate degree in Urbanology. Special students with the baccalaureate 
degree earning 30 hours of work in the Metro Life Studies program will

concept of the environmental and behavioral conditions which lie at the root 
of the urban crisis. The program also includes courses which deal with the 
techniques of city planning and development. Finally, Metro Life Studies 
are calculated to help the undergraduate acquire managerial skills for 
assuming leadership in the quest for ultimate solutions to the great prob- 
lems in contemporary American society. Graduates may pursue graduate 
work in urbanology or find immediate employment in both public and pri- 
vate enterprises concerned with the development of cities. 

Students seeking a major in Metro Life Studies will take the following five 
courses:

ment of centers of industry, commerce, communications and culture. Same
