Father of Wisdom, Master of the Schools of
Men, of thine all-knowledge grant me this my
prayer: that i may be wise in thee. slnk thou
my Foundations down deep into Thy bosom until
they rest upon the vast rock of thy counsel.
Lift Thou my walls into the clear empyrean of
Thy Truth. Cover me with the wings that
shadow from all harm. lay my threshold in
honor and my lintels in love. set thou my
floors in the cement of unbreakable friendship and
may my windows be transplanted with honesty.
Lead Thou unto me, Lord God, those whom Thou
hast appointed to be my children, and when they
shall come who would learn of me the wisdom of
the years, let the crimson of my windows glow
with the Light of the World. Let them see,
my Lord, Him Whom thou hast shown me; let
them hear Him Whose voice Has whispered to me
and let them reach out their hands and touch
Him Who has gently led me unto this good day.
Rock-ribbed may i stand for Thy Truth. Let the
storms of evil beat about me in valn. may i
safely shelter those who come unto me from
the winds of error. let the lightning that lies
in the cloud of ignorance break upon my head in
despair. may the young and the pure and the
clean-hearted put their trust securely in me nor [
may any that ever come to my halls for guidance
be sent astray. let the blue ashlars of my
breast thrill to the happy songs of the true-
hearted and may the very heart of my campus
shout for joy as it feels the tread of those who
march for god. all this i pray of thee; and yet
this, more: that there may be no stain upon my
stones, forever. amen.

THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY*
BOARD OF FOUNDERS
The details of the management of Oglethorpe University
are handled by an Executive Committee of twenty-one men.
The General Board of Trustees and Founders meets at least
once each year, at commencement time, on the university
campus near Atlanta, to inspect the institution, to review all
matters of large importance in the University, and to give
directions to the Executive Committee which is elected by
them and from their number, and which attends to the
details of management of the Institution between the meet-
ings of the Board of Founders. Each member of the Board
represents a gift of two thousand dollars or more to the
University, or an annual gift of not less than $100.00.
Thus there is no one associated with the ownership or
control of the institution in an important capacity who is
not making a personal sacrifice in its behalf.
Nothing more ideal has ever been proposed in the man-
agement of an institution. It is already in operation and
its perfect practicability is largely responsible for the mar-
velous success of the University.
Prospective students will not fail to note the quality of
these men, representing the thousands of men and women
whose sacrifices and prayers have consummated this fine pur-
pose. As representatives and governors of the Institution they
will take pleasure in giving any inquirers information as to
the aims and progress of the University.

Oglethorpe University 17
The historical genesis of Oglethorpe University takes us
back to the middle of the eighteenth century when, under
the leadership of Presbyterian men, Princeton College was
founded in New Jersey and rapidly became the institution
largely patronized by the young men from Presbyterian
families all over the world. After a while the long distances
which must be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested
the building of a similar institution under the auspices of
Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began with
the Spring meeting of Hopewell Presbytery in the year 1823,
and eventuated in the founding of a manual school, and this,
in turn, became Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway
Hill, in the suburbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the
State of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the Institu-
tion. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first denomina-
tional college or university between the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans south of the Virginia line, and, of a right, claimed to
be the Alma Mater of all that brilliant company of institu-
tions which were born after her in this vast empire.
The facilities of the old Oglethorpe were adequate for
the time. The main building was probably the handsomest
college structure in the Southeast when it was erected, and
"contained the finest college chapel in the United States not
excepting Yale, Harvard or Princeton."
In the Faculty of the Institution may be found the names
of men who are world-famous. Among these were Joseph
Le Conte, the great geologist; James Woodrow, the brilliant
and devoted Christian and Scientist; Samuel K. Talmadge, the
eminent administrator, and many others. It is, perhaps, the
chief glory of old Oglethorpe that after three years of in-
struction she graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous class of
1860 and that he was a tutor to her sons until the Spring
of '61 when with the Oglethorpe cadets he marched away
18 Oglethorpe University
to the wars. Shortly before his death, Lanier, looking back
over his career, remarked to a friend that the greatest moral
impulse of his life had come to him during his college days
at Oglethorpe through the influence of Dr. Woodrow. Her
other eminent alumni include governors, justices, modera-
tors of the General Assembly, discoverers, inventors and a
host of honest, industrious and superb laborers for the high-
est ideals of humanity.
Oglethorpe, "died at Gettysburg," for during the war her
sons were soldiers, her endowment was in Confederate bonds,
and her buildings, used as barracks and hospital, were later
burned. An effort was made to revive the institution in the
70's and to locate it in Atlanta, but the evils of reconstruction
clays and financial disaster made the adventure impossible and
unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of struggle the doors
were closed for the second time.
Only thirteen years have passed since the campaign to re-
found began and they have been years of financial disaster
and utter turmoil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of
the institution have passed the sum of a million dollars as
the result of unusual and self-sacrificing liberality on the part
of over five thousand people.
The comer stone of Oglethorpe University was laid on
January 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engraved upon it:
"Manu Dei Resurrexit" (By the Hand of God She has Risen
from the Dead.)
THE OPENING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1916
Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the Fall of 1916.
After fifty years of rest beneath the gray ashes of fratricidal
strife she rose to breathe the airs of a new day. Her first
building, constructed of granite, trimmed with limestone,
covered with slate and as near fireproof as human skill can
make it, was ready for occupaney in the Fall of 1916, when
Oglethorpe University 19
her first class gathered on her beautiful campus on Peach-
tree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cognate institu-
tion in the country has been formed. The work of raising
funds and new construction goes steadily on. And all of this
has been done in the midst of financial disaster that darkened
the spirit of the whole nation, and against the evil influences
of a colossal war, which caused the very joints of the world
THE ROMANCE OF HER RESURRECTION
The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads like a
romance. Beginning only twelve years ago with a contribu-
tion of $100.00 a year for ten years, it soon gathered with it
a band of great-hearted Atlanta men who determined to see
that their city had a university, as well as a band of far-see-
ing educational leaders, who wished to erect a certain high
type of institution in this splendid metropolis. The story
of how dollar was added to dollar during a campaign of
four years; of how no less than seventy Atlanta men gave
each $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise; of how the story
has been told in cities, towns and country all over the South
from Galveston, Texas, to Charlottesville, Virginia, and from
Marshall, Missouri, to Bradentown, Florida; the splendid
triumph of the Atlanta campaign staged in this city just
eleven years ago; all this is well known. Since that time the
same wonderful record has been maintained. There are now
something like five thousand men, women and children all
of whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents to
$75,000.00. They are the Founders of the University; they
belong to the great Founders' Club which is carrying the
movement forward so splendidly.
HER ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY
An idea of the quality of construction and design of the
institution may be gained from the accompanying illustra-
tions. (See Frontispiece.)
20 Oglethorpe University
It will be seen that the architects and landscape artist
spared no pains to make it one of the really beautiful uni-
versities of America. The architecture is Collegiate Gothic;
the building material is a beautiful blue granite trimmed
with limestone. All the buildings will be covered with heavy
variegated slates. The construction is of steel, concrete,
brick and hollow tile. The first building is the one on the
right of the entrance seen in the foreground of the bird's-
eye view. The new building, given by Mr. and Mrs. Lupton,
our beloved benefactors, is the one with the tower just oppo-
site on the left of the entrance. The total cost of construc-
tion of the buildings shown in the above design with the
landscape work required, will be approximately $3,000,000.
The building plan will be followed out in its entirety.
HER SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL IDEALS
But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of the in-
stitution about which the men who are founding Oglethorpe
are most concerned, it is the spiritual and intellectual life of
their university. To that end they have resolved to form a
faculty and adopt a curriculum that will be of the highest
possible quality, their thought being excellence in every de-
partment. They will take the superb traditions of the old
Oglethorpe and add the best of this present age to them.
Doubtless Oglethorpe will be a big university some day, but
she is already a great one, and it is greatness rather than
bigness which her founders crave most for her.
In the Founders' Room at Oglethorpe there will be a Book
containing the name of every man, woman and child who
aided in the founding of the University, arranged alphabeti-
cally, by states. That Book will be accessible to every stu-
dent and visitor who may want to know who it was from
his or her home that took part in the doing of this, the
Oglethorpe University 21
greatest deed that has been attempted for our sons and
daughters in this generation. The Book is not yet complete,
because the work is not yet finished, and each month is add-
ing many to this role of honor, whose names will thus be
preserved in the life and archives of Oglethorpe University
CLOCK AND CHIMES
In the tower of the new building given by Mr. and Mrs.
J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, the gift of
Mrs. H. Frederick Lesh, of Newton Center, Mass. There are
two dials to the clock, and they are illuminated at night. It
is interesting to note that this is the only tower clock in
Atlanta and the only chimes on any college campus in Geor-
gia. On the largest of the bells, which weighs a ton, is the

THE FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY
The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, realizing
the responsibility upon them of selecting a faculty whose
spiritual and intellectual equipment should be capable of
satisfying the tremendous demand of a really great institu-
tion of learning, has spared no effort or pains in securing a
body of men who would not only possess that first requisite
of a teacher, a great soul, but should also have those two
other requisites of almost equal importance: power of im-
parting their ideals and knowledge, and intellectual acquire-
ments adequate for their department. The most important
element in education is the creating in the student of an in-
22 Oglethorpe University
tense yearning for and delight in the Good, the True and the
Beautiful, and the first essential for the creation of such a
spirit is the example set before him by the Faculty. The
University now has a corps of teachers unsurpassed in any
institution of its size and age. The names are given in the
order of their election.

IMMEDIATE PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The purpose of Oglethorpe University is to offer courses
of study leading to the higher academic and professional
degrees, under a Christian environment, and thus to train
young men who wish to become specialists in professional
and business life and teachers in our High Schools and
Colleges, and to supply the growing demand for specially
equipped men in every department of human activity.
Students who are looking forward to university work are
invited to correspond with the President, in order that they
may be putting themselves in line for the advanced courses
which are to be offered.
Adequate Library and Laboratory facilities are being pro-
vided as the need for them arises. Free use will be made
of the city of Atlanta, in itself a remarkable laboratory of
industrial and scientific life, whose museums, libraries and
municipal plants are at the disposal of our students for obser-
vation, inspection and investigation.
The first unit of the building plan is the equivalent in
capacity of four buildings, each 50 by 60 feet, three stories
high. Of these, two are dormitories, one, lecture halls, lab-
oratories and offices, and the fourth, dining hall and refectory.
A new building has been recently erected, to be used as a
dormitory. The generosity of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Lupton
has made possible, also, the erection of another building, which
contains the Library, President's Office, Assembly Hall, Lec-
ture Rooms, Central Clock and Chimes, Founders' Room and
Tower,, and Gymnasium.
Oglethorpe University 31
In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Science, Business
Administration, Literature and Journalism
The requirement for entrance to the Academic Schools of
Oglethorpe University is fifteen units from a school of good
standing. The candidates must present three units in English
and two in Mathematics. In the School of Liberal Arts, three
units of Latin must, also, be offered; in the School of Science
two years of language work are required.
A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a secondary
school, constituting approximately a quarter of a full year's
The authorities of Oglethorpe University are fully ac-
quainted with the educational situation in the South and in
making their entrance requirements somewhat above rather
than below the standard, they have not lost sight of the
frequent insufficiencies of preparation of prospective students
brought about by inadequate high school facilities. It is
the purpose of the University to make its degrees repre-
sent high attainment, but to furnish such facilities for stu-
dents that this attainment will be fairly simple and easy.
It is not our purpose by the adoption of specially high en-
trance requirements to drive away any students from our
institution. Adequate arrangements will be made for aiding
any student who may be behind in his preparation in so far
as such aid is consistent with the best ideals of college work.

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION AND REQUIRE-
MENTS FOR DEGREES
In the session of 1925-26 Oglethorpe University will offer
courses in the undergraduate Classes of five schools leading
to the customary Academic degrees. The degree of Bachelor
of Arts (B. A.) in the Classics will be conferred upon those
students satisfactorily completing a four years' course as out-
lined below, based largely on the study of the "Humanities."
The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science will be conferred
upon those students who satisfactorily complete a four years'
course largely in scientific studies. The degree of Bachelor
of Arts in Literature will be given to those students who
complete a course including special work in languages, litera-
ture and journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in
Commerce will be conferred upon those students who satis-
factorily complete a full four years' course in studies relating
particularly to business administration and industrial life. The
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education will be conferred
upon those students who complete the studies in the School
By a careful study of the courses outlined below, the stu-
dent will be easily able to make a choice most suitable to his
tastes and probable future life.
In general, it may be suggested that those students pre-
paring to enter such professions as the ministry or law, will
choose the B. A. course in Classics; those looking forward
to medicine, dentistry and other scientific work, the B. A.
course in Science; those expecting to enter the literary and
journalistic field, the B. A. course in Literature, and those
who intend to spend their lives in the business world, the
B. A. course in Commerce ; those who expect to teach, the
B. A. course in Education.
While each of these courses is so shaped as to influence
the student towards a certain end, colored largely by the type
of studies it includes, yet each course will be found to in-
clude such subjects of general culture as are necessary to the
education of a life as distinguished from a living.

THE HONORS COURSE AT OGLETHORPE
The Honors Course at Oglethorpe University has been
planned to fill a very definite need of present day education.
With the elective system in operation everywhere and with the
multiplication of schools and departments and courses in our
American universities, the college student is frequently be-
wildered as to what subjects he should choose and what courses
pursue. Specialization also has gone so far in our institutions
that many young men, after studying hard for four years in
one department or another, find that they have omitted many
objects which, among the best educated, are considered essen-
tial to full culture. The President of the University has,
therefore, prepared, and the Faculty and Executive Committee
of the University have approved, the following course of study
to meet this situation and supply the need arising from it. The
courses offered are designed to lay a satisfactory foundation
for the understanding and enjoyment of life. While they ade-
quately prepare a student for any of the professions, in so far
as college work can do so, and for business life as well, yet
they are not exclusively utilitarian. They are intended to de-
velop and sustain a great soul, to acquaint him with the fun-
damental lines of progress of the human race and place him
in position to interpret life to his fellowmen.
The difficulty of doing this adequately without including a
larger number of studies and, therefore, more hours of work
*han the average student can successfully carry, is obvious.
The course is designed only for the student whose prepara-
tion and ability are both above the average. In order to insure
this condition a passing grade and general average of 80 is
necessary for its successful prosecution. Upon those students
who complete the entire four years with a general average for
the four years between 80 and 90, the degree of Bachelor of
Arts, Cum Honore, is conferred. Upon those who complete
the entire course with a general average between 90 and 95,
Oglethorpe University 43
the degree of Bachelor of Arts, Magno Cam Honore, is con-
ferred. Upon any student completing the course with a gen-
eral average of 95 or more, the degree of Bachelor of Arts,
Summo Cum Honore, is conferred.
It is well known to those best acquainted with the progress
of education in the South that even the best of our Southern
colleges and universities are approximately one year behind
the best schools of the East and West. It is a regrettable fact
that the Southern student who has finished the freshman work
is just about ready to enter the freshman class in the best
Eastern institutions. This is not the fault of our colleges but
of insufficient preparation in our high schools, and while this
condition of affairs is being improved it will be many years
before it is completely remedied. This course, which an earn-
est and intelligent student may take in five years and a bril-
liant student in four years, will offset this difference and will
make it possible for our Southern bovs to acquire the same
amount of information and do the same amount of work at
college that is done by their brothers graduating from the
best institutions of the East and West.
No substitutions or electives are allowed. The course must
be taken as scheduled and in the order, by years, as stated.
Students may, however, take some of the courses of the fresh-
man year in the summer term following the freshman year,
and similarly for the other years' work. The time allowed for
the completion of the work is not less than four years and
not more than five. Failure to successfully complete the
course does not in any way disqualify the student from secur-
ing full credits toward other degrees offered for all work suc-
cessfully completed. He may then be graduated in any of
the departments of the college as he may elect on the basis
of such work as he has done. The courses themselves are as
follows; beginning with the Freshman year.

The course in freshman mathematics guarantees a reason-
ably adequate equipment in that department. The course in
Greek and Latin Etymology is designed to supply the student
with a familiarity with scientific terms which he will need
during the remainder of his college work, not only, but
throughout his whole life. Lists of common scientific terms
are studied and their derivation explained. The course of
English acquaints the student with the form and structure of
the language that he speaks, and drills him in the effective use
of it. The course in Latin begins at the beginning. The stu-
dent is taught to read Latin as rapidly as possible. Any stu-
dent who ha3 already had in a standard high school as many
as two years in Latin may substitute another subject instead of
this course from the list which follows. The course in physics
needs no explanation. The course in history begins with the
first civilization in the city-states of the Tigro-Euphrates Val-
ley and is a foundation for other historical studies that fol-
low. The course in physiology is designed to give the student
an adequate idea of the house in which he lives during the re-
mainder of his days. The course in the Old Testament runs
parallel partly with that of Freshmen history and lays the
foundation for his moral and ethical thinking. In addition
to the above, the student is required to take regular work in
In the Sophomore year, the courses are as follows:
Oglethorpe University 45
Hrs. New Testament H
English 3 Bookkeeping 3
Latin 3 Economics 3
Modern Language „ 3 Physical Culture
Biology 5 —
History „ 3 25
The study of English is continued and the same modern
language that was elected for the freshman year must be con-
tinued in the sophomore year. The course in Latin covers
Caesar, first term, selections from Vergil, second term, some
of the Odes of Horace in the third term. The course in biology
makes it possible for the student to understand the life pro-
cesses of the earth. The course in history covers the story of
Greece and Rome. The course in the New Testament is a
study of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, without a
knowledge of which no man can be considered an educated
man. The course in economics is fundamental to any concep-
tion of the business and political world. To this is added the
work in bookkeeping and elementary accounting which will
enable our student to interpret the statistical part of any en-
terprise or business with which he may be connected. To
these, also, is added the work in physical culture,
The courses in the Junior year are as follows:
English 3 Psychology 3
Sociology .-. 3
Modern Language „.3
Commercial Law 3
Geology „ 3 26
Ih the Junior year, the course in English broadens still fur-
ther the student's knowledge of literature. The second mod-
ern language is taken up. The work in chemistry interprets
46 Oglethorpe University
to him the constitution of the world in which he is living.
The course in history covers the story of continental Europe
in its broad outlines. The work in Commercial Law lays the
foundations for intelligent management of his business affairs.
A year in geology, including a short review of paleontology,
reveals to him the marvelous story of the earth on which he
is living. A year in Psychology acquaints him with the pro-
cesses of his own soul, and the work in Sociology orientates
him with respect to society. To these also is added the work
in physical culture.
In the Senior year, the courses are as follows:
English 3 Anthropology 3
History 3 Marketing 3
Mod. Language 3 n . u . . ,
r, ,. . , . „ Cosmic History 1
rohtical science 3
Astronomy 3 —
History of Art 3 25
The work for the seniors in English, while it may vary its
subject from time to time, is designed to widen our student's
knowledge of the finest creative work in his language. The
course in history covers the story of England and America.
The second modern language begun in the junior year is con-
tinued. A year is spent in the study of civics and politics to
prepare our student for an intelligent exercise of his duty as a
citizen. A year in Astronomy gives to him a better grasp of
the universe and bestows upon him a sense of direction and
orientation with respect to his environment. His work in
anthropology covers the whole long story of the development
of man. The work in the history of art includes architecture,
sculpture, painting and music, and by acquainting him with
the great works of the past enables him to enjoy and create
art during his life time. The study of marketing introduces him
to the whole vast field of distributing the products of the
Oglethorpe University 47
world's industry. To this is added the course in Cosmic His-
tory, a sort of introduction to life by the President of the
college; and the work in physical exercise.
The following special courses may be chosen in lieu of such
subjects in the freshman year as the student may have had in
his preparatory work:
Advanced work in Science
Banking and allied subjects
Third year in any language
History of Philosophy
Principles and Philosophy of Education.
Students in the Honors Course whose general average for
five successive terms is as high as 93 will receive the Coat of
Arms Sweater, these conditions being the same as those outlined
for all students at the college.
The University recognizes the fact that a vast accumulation
of information even though it be organized by a well-trained
intellect is utterly incomplete and even dangerous unless the
whole is controlled by a fine moral purpose and. utilized in
excellent personal conduct. It is a tradition of the University
that a close association should be maintained between educa-
tion and righteousness, a fixed alliance of morality with en-
lightenment. We feel that to furnish the highest intellectual
training to liars, thieves, adulterers, or crooks would be calam-
itous to society whose leaders and examples they would be.
All Honor Students at Oglethorpe, therefore, are required
to observe the following laws:
First, the law of personal honesty, forbidding all cheating
on examinations, all thefts, minor and major.
48 Oglethorpe University
The law of personal truthfulness, which forbids all deceit
of every kind whatsoever and particularly in a form of mis-
representation or lying.
The law of personal purity which commands perfect con-
The law of loyalty which aligns the student with all that is
best in the traditions of his Alma Mater and pledges his active
support thereto, above any subsidiary college organization
such as societies, fraternities, clubs, and others. This covers
also abstention from all forms of hazing, and a pledge of his
support to the faculty in preventing same.
The law of self-control which, while partly covered in the
law of personal purity, also includes all forms of drunken-
ness, gambling, and similar lapses from the highest ideals of
the moral law.
The law of reverence: "Thou shalt not take the name of
the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him
guiltless that taketh His name in vain."
No student who violates the above laws may continue as an
honor student at Oglethorpe University.
At the close of the student's course, after he has won either
the cum honore, the magno cum honore, or the summo cum
honor e, he will also be presented by the President with a
medallion of solid gold on which is emblazoned the Coat of
Arms of the University and her seal.
The entrance to Lupton Hall.
Above the doorway is engraved the following inscription
"Till this I learned, that he who buildeth well
Is greater than the structure that he rears.
And wiser he who learns that Heaven hears
Than all the wordy wisdom Idlers spell."
OCLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 49
It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to develop a
thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offering courses in all
departments leading to the Doctor's degree in Science and
Philosophy. In supplying this need, which has for a long
while been acutely felt in the South, the management of the
University will be content with only the very highest grade
of work and facilities.
Courses leading to the Master's and Doctor's degrees in
certain departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this
catalogue under the appropriate department heading. These
degrees are based on that of Bachelor of Arts of Oglethorpe
University or of some other approved institution. For the
Master's degree the candidate must have an aggregate of twelve
hours of graduate work, two full terms to be spent in resi-
dence here, and the candidate must have work with at least
two Professors. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy re-
quires at least three years of graduate work. But neither
degree is guaranteed at the end of a fixed period of time.
A certain amount of work must be accomplished, and the
quality of it must be such as to satisfy the Professors con-
cerned and the whole Faculty. It is required that the candi-
date for Ph. D. demonstrate by examination not later than
the end of his first year, his ability to read German and
French, and the student must have completed the under-
graduate work in the subject to which he wishes to give his
chief attention. A thesis must be submitted, showing original
work. The Faculty hope to develop the Ph. D. courses when
the equipment is adequate.
In this connection, the prospective student will be inter-
ested in learning that all Professors chosen as the heads of
departments in Oglethorpe University must have obtained
the highest academic degree offered in that department
This fact is mentioned in order to indicate the earnest de-

termination of the Board of Directors of the University that
her Faculty shall include only men of the highest intellectual
attainment as well as men of great teaching power and strong
The President of the University will be pleased to answer
any inquiries as to graduate courses to be offered
The steady drift of the wisest opinion of the educational
world looks toward the union of academic with professional
education. The broadening effect of association of profes-
sional students with other classmen on the university cam-
pus, as well as the valuable opportunity for contact with
academic work, renders this connection highly desirable. It
is the purpose of the University to enter the field of pro-
fessional education as quickly as funds are secured to enable
us to do so adequately. Schools of Engineering, Architec-
ture, Dentistry, Law and Medicine will be established as op-
portunity offers, but no work will be undertaken that cannot
be executed with the same quality of matter and form that is
offered in the best institutions of our country.
Students who are contemplating the professions of law,
medicine or dentistry, and who do not desire to study for an
academic degree, are allowed to take such work as will pre-
pare them for entrance to professional schools. In addition
to the required high school units for college entrance, pre-
professional students must complete a two-year assignment,
including thirty-eight year hours. The attention of the pros-
pective student should, however, be clearly called to the fact
that each year finds it more necessary for the professional
man to have a thorough foundation for his professional studies,
and the professional schools are becoming more strict in their
requirements for entrance. Particularly is this the case in
Medicine, where the best medical colleges require a diploma
from a standard college for entrance. We would strongly
advise our students to study the suggestions made on page 37
and have their college diploma safely in hand before they
begin their professional studies. The specific conditions for
completing the several pre-professional courses are detailed

THE PRESIDENT'S COURSE
Cosmic History by President Jacobs
In the endeavor to give to the graduates of the University
a course that will co-ordinate the knowledge they have ob-
tained of such subjects as Biology, Geology, Palaeontology,
etc., with their work in Bible, Ethics and Philosophy, the
President of the University will meet the Senior Class one hour
per week, Wednesday, at 10:45, in a seminar covering a story
of human life following the broad outlines of Astronomy,
Geology, Palaeontology, Embryology, Anthropology and Ar-
chaeology. The course closes with a study of the first ten
chapters of Genesis in relation to modern discoveries. It is
especially designed to give the graduates of Oglethorpe Uni-
versity a conception of the harmony between religion and
modern science and is required of all Seniors. It is believed
that this work of co-ordination of modern science with religion
can best be done in the senior class to the end that in harmon-
izing the truths learned their faith may not be unsettled.
BIBLE AND PHILOSOPHY
The course in English Bible extends over two years; it u
required for the B. A. degree in all four Departments, and
must be pursued by every under-graduate student.
The first year is devoted to the Old Testament, the second
to the New Testament, together with the intervening period.
Th' study will include the mastery of the history contained
in the Bible, an analysis of each book, and such other matters
as are required for the proper understanding of the work.
It will be treated not from a sectarian point of view, nor as
mere history or literature. The aim will be to impart such
a knowledge of the subject as every intelligent man should
possess, enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and

defense of seeming difficulties in the Bible, both for their
own benefit, and that they may be able to meet the objec-
tions of unbelievers.

Oglethorpe University 55
so far as possible on observations made in laboratory experi-
ments, and on demonstrations. The facts observed are dis-
cussed in lectures and quizzes. In the lectures free use is made
of charts, models, and microscopical sections. Weekly oral
quizzes are supplemented by written tests given upon the com-
pletion of some general division of the subject. This course
is recommended as a preparation for human anatomy, to those
who intend to enter on Medicine. Although this course is op-
tional according to the requirements of the medical school the
student proposes to attend, it should be distinctly understood
that the University does not look with favor upon those who
comply merely with a minimum of the requirements for admis-
sion to such schools.

Prof. A. S. Libby. Ass't Prof. Maxwell.
Prof. C. S. Libby.
The School of Business Administration, Commerce and
Finance is an undergraduate-graduate school, one of the pro-
fessional divisions of the University. Instruction is therefore
directed toward professional education rather than narrow
technical drill. Entrance requirements for the undergraduate
work are the same as for the School of Liberal Arts, except
that Ancient Language is not required. Modern Language,
especially Spanish or French, is strongly advised. Shorthand
and typewriting are neither required nor later counted toward
a degree, but are strongly recommended.
The graduate work is based upon the Bachelor's Degree
from an accredited institution.
Economics — Its laws and principles with special reference
to American conditions. The course presents a general sur-
vey and is designed to serve as an introduction to later and
more intensive study of the problems of industrial society.

with Comparative Government.
Accounting Principles — An elementary course based on
the use made of financial statements in business organization
and control. The student is familiarized, through practice
and discussion, with the entire accounting process, beginning
with the voucher and ending with the report. The last part
of the course is devoted to the consideration of the typical
financial statements and their analysis from the standpoint of
the various interests involved. The method of instruction is a
combination of lectures and discussions, supplemented by lab-
Business Communication — A study of the communicating
function in business and of the technique which is common

includes the assembling of the data from letters, editorials,
and business articles.
This course has a twofold purpose: (1) to give the infor-
mation about the communicating activities of business and the
skill in the presentation of business material which all busi-
ness workers need, and (2) to provide the foundation neces-
sary for an advanced study of correspondence and advertising

lytical, causal and historical, of the main forces and factors
which give rise to modern labor conditions and problems and
which, therefore, must be taken into consideration in the at-
tempted solution of specific labor problems, together with a
brief discussion of social programs, organized labor, and
labor legislation. This course is designed to serve as the foun-
dation for the special courses in this field as well as to meet
the needs of those who wish only a general study of labor
problems. Its main divisions are the genesis, evolution, and
character of present-day labor problems; the material progress
and present condition of the wage-earning class, wages, hours
of work, unemployment, property holdings, and distribution
of income, among other things, being considered; points of
view and social programs; the philosophy, policies, and
methods of organized labor, arbitration and social insurance.
Risk and Risk Bearing in Modern Industrial Society —
A detailed study of the speculative character of modern in-
dustry, with analysis of the various sources and kinds of risks
and the various ways of meeting risk. Special study of insur-
ance: (1) life; the kinds of companies, their organization
and operation; the kinds of policies and the calculation of
72 Oglethorpe University
premiums; insurance investments and dividends; (2) prop-
erty insurance, companies and their methods of operation;

inspection bureaus; underwriters' laboratories; (3) the prob-
lems of buying and selling insurance; regulation of insurance
by the state; state insurance.
Marketing 1 — Raw Materials — A survey of the method
and problems connected with the marketing of raw materials.
A study is made of farm products, mineral products, forest
products, and sea products, and the physical and geographical
environment of the productive regions to discover their com-
mercial problems. The course falls into three general divis-
ions: (1) the commodity, (2) the markets, (3) the trade
organization. Special study is made of the problems of the
middlemen, transportation, warehousing, organized exchanges
and produce markets, market news, financing the market and
market price. These problems are analyzed in classroom dis-
cussion as they appear in the marketing of four or five great
staple commodities. Theory and practice are balanced by
visits to warehouses, cold storages, produce markets, and other
Each student is required to select a commodity and trace it
through its entire marketing process. The information for
these papers is secured through government bulletins, market
reports, technical and scientific literature, and by interviews
and observation. Special emphasis is placed upon first-hand
Marketing 2 — Manufactured Goods — In the problems and
methods of marketing manufactured products, the same gen-
eral divisions are made: (1) the commodity, (2) the market,
(3) the trade organization. The classroom discussion will
consider the general problems confronting a merchant with
goods to sell; organization of a business; duties and respon-
sibilities of the sales manager, the advertising manager, and
the advertising agency; application of scientific principles to
Oglethorpe University 73
commercial analysis; location; analysis of a commodity; pur-
chasing problem, stock plans; analysis of market; analysis of
trade organization, department store, chain-store, mail-order
house, co-operative store; price policy, price maintenance,
credit; opportunities for extending the market; selection and
organization of the sales force; selection of advertising me-
diums; financing a sales and advertising organization; co-
ordinating the selling forces. The aim is to define and out-
line the general principles of commercial analysis, which in-
cludes the work of both salesmen and advertising men. The
literature that is available on these problems is assigned for
As in Course 1 above, the student is required to make first-
hand investigation and written reports of the problems, in local
Marketing 3 — Foreign Trade — The marketing problems
arising are: theories of foreign trade; character and volume
of trade available for foreign commerce; contact with the for-
eign market, commission house, forwarding agent, manufac-

partments; foreign correspondence; advertising in the foreign
market; combining for foreign trade; prices in foreign trade;
foreign exchange, credit, price quotations; transportation;
marine insurance; tariffs; merchant marine; individual foreign
markets. The point of view is that of an inland city like
Atlanta. The problems are conditioned by this fact.
Marketing 4 — Problems of Marketing and Merchan-
dising — A wide range of problems of manufacture and dis-
As in courses 1 and 2, each student will select a single
commodity for detail study. The investigation will be de-
veloped into a term paper dealing with the selected product
in the various foreign markets, with the effects of the Euro-
pean war, and with the future possibilities. An attempt will
74 Oglethorpe University
be made to clear away the obscurities surrounding the sub-
ject of foreign trade by following a commodity through to its
destination, with samples of all the necessary documents.

technical capital, (2) growth of specialized knowledge before
which common intelligence is at a disadvantage, (3) conflicts
of interests which the law of property and contract cannot
fully harmonize, and (4) other causes. Chief emphasis will
be laid on the problems common to trusts, railroads, and public

Industrial Administration I — Designed primarily for
those students expecting to enter the manufacturing field. It
presupposes the courses Industrial Society, Business Admin-
Oglethorpe University 77
istration, Statistic, Accounting, and some ability to undertake
independent investigation. The course deals with the nature
and characteristics of the complex problems of the industrial
executive, and systematic methods of such problems, aiming
thus to provide the student with a sense of relative values and
some method for later intensive research on his own initiative.
The work is made practical by independent investigation in
factories of various types.
Industrial Administration II — A continuation of Indus-
trial Administration I with similar objectives. The more im-
portant "philosophies of administration" which help to solve
the manufacturer's problems; a rapid survey of the history of
industrial engineering; theories, principles, methods of ap-
proach, devices, and their application to various types of in-
dustry. This work is made practical through personal inter-
views with men who have developed the more important phil-
osophies of administration.
Commercial Law (A three-term course) — Ordinarily in non-
commercial affairs the risks incident to ignorance of the law
are not particularly formidable. A working knowledge of the
rules of the Commercial Law is of practical value to every

investigation in one or more factories in Atlanta and vicinity,
exemplifying as far as possible the type of production in
which he is most interested, studying the problems of store-
handling, routing, tool-room maintenance, cost keeping, worked
material and tool standardization and classification, in making
route charts, and in devising production systems.
Industrial Combinations — The conditions in modern in-
dustrial society which have led to the growth of combina-
tions, an analysis of the motives for their formation, the
sources of their power and the elements of their weakness,
the character and extent of any possible social advantages
to be derived from them as well as the disadvantages and
evils which have followed their growth, the attempts at state
and federal regulation in the past, and the question of the
desirable policy and feasible methods of control for the fu-
ture. The subject is treated as a single problem of modern
industrial society, with emphasis on methods of investiga-
tion, analysis, and reasoning essential for the study of simi-

THE SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL CULTURE
Perhaps the most remarkable single development in the
modern educational world is the possession by our colleges
and universities of complete control of the greatest of all
sports. American college football is the most interesting,
most exciting, most manly, most instructive and most prof-
itable game ever played by men. It, more than any other,
furnishes to its devotees something of the moral equivalent
of war, and such a hold has it taken on the public that they
pour out their tens of thousands of dollars to witness inter-
collegiate games in vast stadia and bowls erected largely for
the purpose at a cost reaching into the millions. It is a
momentous thing for the academic world to have control of
the American equivalent of the Olympic games and the con-
tests of the Arena, and as we watch the never ceasing en-
largment of interest, finance, equipment and importance of
this part of college work it must be perfectly apparent that
the very life of a college depends and will more and more
depend upon its method of handling this fact which is at
once a challenge and an opportunity.
And, hand in hand with football, go baseball, basket-ball,
boating, track, and indeed the whole physical well-being of
the vast. American student-body.
Passing by as somnolent those colleges that sidestep the
fact by denying their students the privilege of intercollegiate
sports and those that permissively decree a Students' Athletic
Association which assumes control of coach, games, and often
of "Faculty Directors of Athletics," we come to those insti-
tutions that face the situation with wide open eyes.
The attitude of Oglethorpe University to all athletics is
based upon the recognition of the physical training of the
human body as a college study.
84. Oglethorpe University
It is presumed that a matter of such overwhelming im-
portance to college life as athletics and of such transcendent
interest to the public that it commands their time and purses
at will, is a matter worth studying seriously and deserving
to be ranked with Greek or Poultry Keeping.
Therefore Oglethorpe University has founded her School of
Its purpose is two-fold: to train, protect and develop the
bodies of all the students of the University and to offer a
special school where those who deserve it may receive special
training, equipping them for positions as Physical Directors
in Y. M. C. A.'s, in the Army, and in other schools, colleges
As a school for the special preparation of students for
positions as physical directors and coaches in Y. M. C. A.'s,
the Army and other schools and universities, a regular cur-
riculum has been arranged offering instruction in the follow-
ing subjects, the completion of which will lead to an appro-
priate certificate or degree:
1. Physiology — A first-year course in the study of the
human body, one hour per week — Fall, Winter, Spring and
Summer Terms. Required of all Freshmen. Prerequisite for
all courses enumerated below. Includes studies in Sanitation,

2. Mass Athletics — A study of methods used in the A.
E. F., Play Athletics, Study of muscles, their development
and health. Study of various development systems. Three
hours per week. Required of all students who do not elect
courses 3 — 10.
3. Track — Study and practice of all track exercise, run-
Oglethorpe University 85
ning, jumping, vaulting, discus and javelin throwing, hurd-
ling and relay race. Three hours per week. Elective.
4. Football — Science and practice of this greatest of
games, study of formations, plays, strategy, management.
5. Baseball — Science and practice of the most widely
popular of all American games. Spring Term only. Twelve

quirements of S. I. A. A., for eligibility in intercollegiate
An appropriate letter will be given all students making the
University team in any of the above classes, 3-10, inclusive.
Any student successfully completing all courses, 1-13 inclu-
sive, will be accorded a certificate or diploma in proportion
to the quantity and quality of his work.
Every human being should be taught to play with his fel-
low-beings. Every student should have daily exercise. These
two simple but fundamental axioms are the basis for all work
in this department.
The munificent gift of fifty thousand dollars by Mr. and
Mrs. Harry P. Hermance to Oglethorpe University for an
athletic field has made possible the immediate inauguration
of this plan, which is founded upon the study from a college
standpoint of psychology, hygiene, sanitation, first aid work,
etc. It further emphasizes the necessity of careful medical
supervision of all athletics and the adaption to each individ-
ual student of special forms of exercise.
One of its most important features is the requiring of every
student to take some form of physical exercise daily under
proper medical or tutorial guidance. In this way those who
need it most would be most advantaged, and the chief failure
of the athletic program of our average American college
would be obviated, for it is a notorious fact that most of our
institutions develop a small number of trained athletes in
football, baseball, basket-ball, etc., while the great mass of
students do little more than sit on the bleachers and yell.
And the building of the new athletic field given by Mr.
and Mrs. Hermance makes possible the inauguration at Ogle-
thorpe of a complete system of physical culture for all stu-
dents. It will include not only the great athletic features
Oglethorpe University 87
such as football, baseball, basket-ball, etc., but also many
interesting track exercises, discus and javelin throwing, jump-
ing, vaulting and, in fact, all of the various numbers to be
found at our intercollegiate track meets. It is the purpose
of Oglethorpe University as quickly as circumstances may
permit, to enter a team in every number on the program of
such meets, and, in addition, to develop a strong boating
crew on Silver Lake.
The University has been especially fortunate in enjoying
the services of Mr. Frank B. Anderson, one of the best known
coaches in the South, who has had charge of Athletics at
Oglethorpe University and who has been advanced to the
directorship of the department of physical culture. Mr. An-
derson has merited and won not only a great reputation as
a coach, but as a clean, fine friend of young men, and there
is no man in the whole of America more loved by his boys.
We are especially fortunate also in being able to announce
that Mr. Harry Robertson, famous all-American football star,
will coach our football team and teach Course No. 4. The
University, of course, is proud of his record and happy in
the knowledge that our boys will have as their coach a man
who is an expert in that department with hardly an equal in
this country, and those of us who have charge of the moral and
mental life of the University, feel especially happy in having
at the head of this fascinating department of our work, a
splendid outstanding man whose personal influence with the
students will mean so much in the building of character and
the enforcing of every moral and religious precept. It is not
going too far to say that the teams at Oglethorpe will be as
well coached next year and thereafter as any teams on the
American continent, for there are no two finer men at the
head of athletics whether it be as coaches or as men, than the
two who head this department at Oglethorpe.
Other instructors will be added as this work may require.
88 Oglethorpe University
Having in mind the frequent inadequacy of preparation for
college on the part of many students, the University operates
during the summer a summer school wherein are offered stand-
ard sub-freshmen courses such as Mathematics, English, Latin,
Greek, etc. These courses are open to students of accredited
high schools, not only, but also to other students who, after
they have finished them satisfactorily, may stand examination
on the subjects taken and other subjects necessary for college
entrance and may thus enter college in the following fall.
In addition to the above, should there be a sufficient number
of applicants, some regular college courses may be specially
arranged for upon application to the President.
Among other courses thus offered for the coming year are
those in bookkeeping and accounting in the School of Com-
merce under Professor Ira V. Maxwell.
The boarding department of the University will not be open
during the summer, but board and lodging can be easily ob-
tained in the city of Atlanta or in the neighborhood of the
University at moderate prices.
Board and Room Rent
The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University are the
safest and most comfortable of cognate institutions in the
South. All the buildings of the University will be like the
first two that are now finished, which are believed to be ab-
solutely fireproof, being constructed of steel, concrete and
granite with partitions of brick and hollow tile.
The Boarding Department of the Institution is conducted
to please the student. Thoroughly first-class service will be
given. The skimmed milk diet which produces skimmed milk
thinking will be studiously avoided. Price of board is in-
Oglethorpe University 89
eluded in the room rent.
The prices named below are based upon three grades of
rooms. The first of these comprises the temporary dormi-
tory; the second the entire third floor of the present main
building, which is fifty (50) feet wide and one hundred and
eighty (180) feet long; it is divided into individual rooms,
with general toilet and bath room on the same floor. Each
contains a lavatory furnishing hot and cold water. The third
grade is on the second floor of the main building and is com-
posed of suites of rooms, each suite containing a bedroom,
bath and study. The price charged includes first-class board,
steam heat, electric lights, water and janitor's service, and all
rooms are furnished adequately and substantially. Every room
in the dormitory contains ample closet space. The rooms are
large, airy, safe and comfortable and are roomy enough for the
use of from one to four young men.
The furniture is of oak and is the same for all rooms, in-
cluding chiffonier, study-table, single bed, spring and mattress
for each student.
Room linen and bed clothing will be furnished by the stu-
dent. Applications for rooms should be filed at once. For
reservation of room inclose $5.00 reservation fee, to be credited
on first payment.
The expenses at Oglethorpe University are made as low as
the quality of instruction, of rooming accommodations and of
table fare will permit. No fees such as matriculation, library,
hospital, contingent, athletic, etc., are charged. To Day Stu-
dents the only charge made is that of tuition which is $70.00
per term, as covered by the college calendar.
For students boarding in the dormitories of the University
the following charges are made:
New Government Building $155.00 per term
90 Oglethorpe University
Administration Building, second floor (see diagram on page
Third floor (see diagram on page 99), $167.50.
All University charges are payable quarterly in advance ex-
cept by special arrangement. For absences no rebate is made
on board for less than one week, on room rent for less than
one month, and on tuition for less than one term. No rebate
is made on absences caused by temporary suspension by action
of the faculty. It will be observed that the total cost for the
entire year, including tuition, table board and room rent, heat,
light and janitor service ranges from $155.00 per term up-
ward — according to the rooming accommodations. The stu-
dent should bring his own bedding and personal linen. Books
may be purchased from the Student Co-op or in the city of
Atlanta and will cost approximately $10.00 per term.
Upon assuming possession of his room each student is given
a statement showing the general condition of the room and of
the articles of furniture contained therein. He is required at
the end of each term — or at the end of the college year — upon
the request of the Superintendent, to restore the property to
the condition in which he received it by paying the actual cost
of replacements and repairs as made or estimated as necessary
to be made by the college officials. When the room is occu-
pied by more than one student the cost of repairs is divided in
proportion to responsibility.
Approximately fifteen per cent of the Oglethorpe student
body are "working their way through college" in whole or in
It is the intention of the authorities of the University to
see that a way is provided as far as possible for the assist-
ance of any student who may be in pecuniary need and yet
Oglethorpe University 91
desirous of prosecuting his studies at Oglethorpe. A special
Faculty Committee will co-operate with students to that end.
As a general rule it is best for the student that he should
be able to devote all of his time to his academic duties, but
where circumstances require it, many students may undertake
various tasks, payment for which materially aids them in
meeting their expenses.

SPECIAL LOAN FUND
By the generosity of a good friend who does not wish his
name mentioned, the University is able to lend a limited sum
to deserving students who would otherwise be unable to prose-
cute their studies at Oglethorpe. Further details upon appli-
ATHLETICS— HERMANCE FIELD
The munificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry P. Her-
mance in giving to Oglethorpe the sum of $50,000.00 for an
Athletic Stadium, the finest in the South, makes feasible the
development of all forms of field sports, including not only
the great games of football and baseball, but also vaulting,
jumping, discus and javelin throwing, track work, etc. Physi-
cal culture for all students will be required.
A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the University
toward inter-collegiate athletics, and Oglethorpe University is
acquitting herself well in that sphere of her educational life.
In addition to those sports common to all well equipped
colleges in the South, Oglethorpe University is the fortunate
possessor of a beautiful lake covering eighty acres located
92 Oglethorpe University
conveniently to the University campus, with a part of its
shore set aside for a university boat house. This will enable
the institution to add a crew to its list of athletic sports.
The lake is admirably suited for boating, rowing, swimming
The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the care of
the physical life of our students as a matter of large import-
ance. (Physical and hygienic welfare and instruction will be
a part of the curriculum of the institution.) Regular instruc-
tion, looking to symmetrical development of the entire man
will be given in the Athletic Department of the University,
under competent medical guidance. Special attention is at
present given to outdoor athletics. Adequate provision is
being made for football and baseball grounds, tennis courts,
etc. Work has been begun on the Hermance Stadium.
One of the interesting features of university life at Ogle-
thorpe is the University Store, managed for the benefit of
the students themselves, under the superintendence of the
In the store are kept all the necessary college accessories.
Any ordinary purchase may thus be made most conveniently,
as full lines of goods answering the various college require-
ments are constantly kept on hand.
MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ATMOSPHERE
The ability of a college or university to develop worthy
character in its students depends largely upon that indefin-
able quality called "college atmosphere." As a mother, she
breathes her own soul into her boys. They inherit all she
has been through, all of labor and strength and faith and
prayer. If her judgments have been bought out with money
they inherit that; if with blood they inherit that. Every storm
Oglethorpe University 93
through which she has passed strengthens them for their own
conflicts in the days that are to come.
Oglethorpe is a daughter of battle and faith and prayer.
God alone built her, touching the hearts of multitudes of
His children at the voice of her call. Alone of all the promi-
nent ante-bellum universities she died for her ideals and
alone of all the universities of America, God has raised her
from the dead.
By her every battle, her every faith, her every triumph, she
has learned what things are really worth while and what hand
really to lean upon. She will tell her children of Hnu.
SPECIAL RELIGIOUS SERVICES
Daily chapel exercises, which the students are required to
attend, are conducted by each of the members of the faculty
in turn. The student life at Oglethorpe is also blessed by
the activities of the Y. M. C. A., and frequent sermons and
addresses by visiting pastors and evangelists. A Sunday School
Class has been started by the students themselves, which grew
to a membership of over eighty.
By the generosity of many friends, so great as to be almost
unparalleled, the University received during the first year of
its life approximately ten thousand volumes for the library.
These consist of standard works in Literature, History and
Science, with many valuable reference works in special de-
partments. The Private Libraries of Dr. Sellers in Science,
and of Dr. Nicolassen in the Classics, are both available for
the use of the students in these departments. The policy of
the institution is to let no year go without the enlargement of
the library. A competent librarian is in charge and the rooms
will be open during the year of 1924-25 approximately ten
hours per day. The Public Library of Atlanta is also available
for the use of our students.
KING LIBRARY OF ENGLISH
By the splendid generosity of Dr. Cheston King the Uni-
versity has been given a Library of English incomparably the
finest south of Washington. The volumes for this library, in-
cluding some seventeen thousand books and pamphlets, have
been received, and are now available for graduate work.
Among the unique honors offered at the University is the
presentation of a sweater with the Coat-of-Arms blazoned
thereon, which will be awarded in the future under the terms
of the following resolution unanimously adopted by the Fac
ulty of the University, upon recommendation of the President:
"Resolved, that on and after September 1st, 1922, the
Coat-of-Arms of Oglethorpe University shall be given to those
students carrying a minimum of fifteen hours weekly, of ex-
cellent personal character and conduct, whose general average
of all the courses taken during five preceding consecutive
terms shall have been not less than 93, or who, in lieu of said
general average, shall have so distinguished themselves in
some intellectual, creative, or constructive accomplishment as
to entitle them thereto in the judgment of the Faculty."
This honor has been awarded to the following:

THE OGLETHORPE IDEA
Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe idea —
quality in location, in climate, in campus, in architecture, in
student character, in college life, in athletics and sports, in
faculty, in curriculum, and in religion and morals. Every
one of these we offer at Oglethorpe.
Located in the commercial and educational capital of the
South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most elegant street
of that city, on a most beautiful campus of over one hundred
and thirty acres of woodland and meadow, including an eighty-
two acres lake which belongs to our students for swimming,
boating and fishing, the physical advantages offered by Ogle-
thorpe University are unsurpassed anywhere in the section.
One by one a splendid body of buildings is being erected
on its campus. Every one of them will be of granite trimmed
with limestone and covered with variegated slates. All of
them will be as fire-proof as human skill can make them
and as commodious and comfortable as our architects can plan
them. They will be like the first buildings already erected,
which are believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most
efficient college or university buildings in the Southeast.
96 Oglethorpe UNivEnsiTY
THE OGLETHORPE SITE— ATLANTA
The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educational
center are fast making it one of the great intellectual dyna-
mos of the nation. Gifted with a soft, Southern mountain
climate, convenient of access to the entire nation over its
many lines of railway, known everywhere as the center of
Southern activities, she draws to herself as to a magnet the
great minds of the nation and the world. Hither come
lecturers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teachers
and officials of the United States. An intellectual atmosphere
created by such conditions and the frequent opportunity of
contact with these leaders in all branches of human activity,
offered frequently to our students, give Oglethorpe University
an advantage of position and of opportunity which she will
cultivate to the uttermost. Facilities for hearing and meeting
the great musicians and authors and public speakers and the
leaders in all spheres of intellectual activity will be offered
our students. The tremendous influence of such contact upon
the young lives committed to us will be felt in increased
ambition and redoubled determination to perform, themselves,
their duty to their race and their God.
THE SILENT FACULTY AT OGLETHORPE
It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic tastes and
home habits of many young men are ruined at college by
the cheap and unattractive furnishings of their rooms and
the ugly forbidding architecture of the building, whose walls
often deface their campus. The architecture of an institu-
tion of learning should be a constant source of delight and
inspiration to its students, teaching quietly but surely the
highest ideals of life. Indeed all those qualities of soul we
know as honesty, solidity, dignity, durability, reverence and
beauty may be expressed in the face of a building as surely
as in that of a man, and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe
Entrance to Administration Building.
Over this beautiful doorway is engraved the motto of the
"A Search is the Thing He Hath Taught You,
For Height a>iii for Depth and for Wideness."
Oglethorpe University 97
Not less important are the personal surroundings of the
student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped apartments
have exactly the same influence on the soul of a boy that
cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human companions have. That
is why the rooms at Oglethorpe are handsomely furnished.
The sons of the poor are entitled to the information and in-
spiration such surroundings offer, and the sons of the rich
will deteriorate without them.
In brief the college education that does not teach a love
of beauty and tidiness and what is popularly called "decency,"
is essentially and dangerously defective.
This is the special work of the silent faculty at Oglethorpe.

100 Oglethorpe University
THE EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES OF OUR
Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal contact
and instruction of the heads of departments will note with
interest that our first few years will offer exceptional op-
portunities of that nature. It is well known that in all our
large institutions only the upper classmen come in any close
contact with the full Professors, who as heads of depart-
ments occupy their time in other matters than educating
We believe in giving our Freshmen the best we have, and
they will be taught by men who have taught in or had of-
fered them, chairs in the greatest universities of America.
This will be a permanent policy at Oglethorpe.
All students of all classes are required to take two hours
a week of Physical Training. This is intended to keep the
body in good condition, and is especially designed for the
benefit of those students who do not take part in football,
baseball, etc., but who need some stimulus to pay attention to
their physical well being.
The University maintains at all times an excellent infirm-
ary, with a nurse in attendance, for the prompt treatment of
accidents and of such cases of sickness as may occur. By
this means prolonged and serious illness can often be pre-
vented. During the recent influenza epidemic vigorous meas-
ures were taken at once, with the result that, while there were
a relatively small number of cases there were no fatalities.
There is a University physician who can be secured on short
notice when his services are needed.
Oglethorpe University 101
The University makes no charge to the students for infirm-
ary service which includes also the attendance of the college
physician in the infirmary. In case of special illness requir-
ing operations or the services of specialists, while the Univer-
sity frequently is able to secure reduced charges for our stu-
dents, yet we assume no responsibility beyond such service as
our college physician and college infirmary are able to render.
EXAMINATIONS AND REPORTS
Examinations will be held once each term, and reports of the
students' standing will be issued four times per year.
Oglethorpe University has the double advantage of being
located in the suburbs of Atlanta, so far out as not to be
subject to the distractions of city life, yet so near in as to
enjoy all the public utilities of a great city. Among these
are city water, electric lights, city trolley line, telephone and
telegraph service, and in addition thereto the University has
its own postoffice, express office and railway station, all known
as Oglethorpe University, Georgia.
DIRECTIONS TO NEW STUDENTS
Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a distance
should remember that Oglethorpe University has its own sta-
tion on the main line of the Southern Railway between Atlanta
and Washington. Tickets may be purchased and baggage
checked to Oglethorpe University, Georgia, the station being
immediately in front of the campus. Students coming to
Atlanta over other lines may either re-check their baggage to
the University station, or may have it delivered at a special
rate by the Atlanta Baggage & Cab Company. In using the
latter method mention should always be made of the special
students' rate at the time the order is given.
102 Oglethorpe University
One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in this city of
remarkable gatherings, was the assembling of approximately
two hundred of the representative women of the city of At-
lanta at the home of Mrs. Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday after-
noon, November 25, • 1916, to organize a Woman's Board for
The purpose of the Board is to aid the University in every
wise and efficient way, with counsel of and guidance by the
proper authorities of the Institution. Already more than four
hundred of the finest workers and most representative women
of the city have offered their services and joined the organi-
zation. Their activities are directed toward the support and
development of Oglethorpe in every phase of its growth and
activities. Each of the ladies is assigned to the committee
on which she feels best able to serve. These committees cover
the various departments of the University, and among them
are: Ways and Means, Finance, Grounds, Press, Entertain-
ment, Hospital, Music, Library, Arts, Refreshments, Trans-
portation, and such other committees as it may seem wise to
the Board from time to time to appoint.
The authorities of the University welcome the formation
of this organization with the greatest joy. The mere fact
that they have promised a devoted allegiance to the enter-
prise has its own genuine value, but those who know the
women of Atlanta, with their marvelous capacity for earn-
est and consecrated work directed by a swift and accurate
intelligence, will realize what must be the results of the
efficient aid which they are giving to the Institution.
The Woman's Board has established a permanent endow-
ment fund and is being incorporated under the laws of Georgia
in preparation for handling funds donated or bequeathed to
the University through the Woman's Board.
Oglethorpe University 103
