8 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

THE AIMS AND PURPOSE OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

Over a quarter of a century ago, the then president of 
Oglethorpe University, Philip Weltner, wrote an introduction to 
the catalog in which he expressed his ideas about the aims and 
purposes of an educated man, and the aims and purposes of 
the college. 

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 repre- 
sented 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, in- 
cluding human nature and human associations; to learn to take 
account of these notonlyfortheir own sake but for growth, guid- 
ance and direction for himself and others; to express his deepest 
individualityintheworkor calling mostappropriate to his talents; 
and to discover his proper place, role, and function in the com- 
plex 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 tothe 
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 peo- 
ple, 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. 



Never before have people been so alive to the necessity of 
mastering rather than being mastered by the economic and sci- 
entific forces at work in our world. Creative brains and individual 
initiative, tempered by a strong sense of social responsibility, 
are the only sources of payrolls compatible with a free society, 
and improving 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 
whocome 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 educa- 
tion, in order to be true to itself, must be a progressive experi- 
enceforthelearner, in which interestgives 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 pro- 
motes this desired result. Not only in professional 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 
forand give scope todiversified 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 
community, with human understanding, involves arts in which 
we are all equally concerned. 

Throughout the essay there is the pervasive theme that the 
educated person takes his education out with him, and 
involves his knowledge and understanding in his contacts with 
others, in his private life, in his social life, and in his career. A 
good education is one that pervades a life in all its facets, and 
is not just, like fancy china, "good for Sundays only." 

The post-World War II world has speeded up and changed 
some of its values, but the Oglethorpe idea has not changed. 



OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 
10 

We still feel that the aim of a good education is, as Dr. Weltner 
put it, to enable our students to live "in community, with 
human understanding." Our own community is a small one, 
but small for more than just the pleasures that can ensue when 
everybody knows everybody else. Our smallness enables us to 
work together as a unit, to achieve a unity of goals, and to 
grow together in our pursuit of them. At Oglethorpe one's 
major or one's career goal is of less importance than one's 
membership in an academic community dedicated to the 
intelligent pursuit of the means to a better world. Our basic 
core of required courses does more than give the student a 
general overview of the world in which he lives, it gives him a 
common background with his fellows, both in the student 
body and the faculty, out of which, like a fertile soil, the 
Oglethorpe community, ever changing, ever improving, can 
grow and prosper.

HISTORY OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

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- 
supported university in the academic pattern of the nineteenth 
century. 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 leader- 
ship and, at the same time, gathered about him a faculty of 
unusual ability, at least two of whom would achieve real distinc- 
tion: James Woodrow, 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 
graduates was the poet Sidney Lanier, a member of the Class 
of 1860, who remarked shortly before his death that the great- 
est intellectual 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 students marched away to become Confederate soldiers; 
her endowment 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 seem- 
ingly 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 northern edge of metropolitan Atlanta. The cornerstone 
of the first building was laid in 1915 in a ceremony witnessed 



12 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

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 
developed a number of ideas and enterprises which brought 
national, and even international, recognition to the school. 
Most notable among these were the establishment of a cam- 
pus radio station as early as 1 931 , and the completion in 1 940 
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 1 944 
when Dr. Philip Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a 
group of faculty associates, initiated a new and exciting ap- 
proach to undergraduate education called the "Oglethorpe 
Ideal' 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 toward these ends a program of studies 
should be developed which made sense from first to last and 
which meaningfully hung together. 

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 University is sympathetic 
toward all religions and encourages its students to affiliate 
with a local church of their own choosing or synagogue, formal 
support from church bodies was discontinued. Today Ogle- 
thorpe stands as a wholly private and non-sectarian institution 
of higher learning. 

The College has also developed a program of physical ex- 
pansion 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. Traer Hall, a new women's dormitory, was completed 
in 1969. 

The new science center was completed during the fall of 
1971 and houses the science and psychology departments. 

Renovation of Lowry Hall for a new four-floor library facility 
was completed in July of 1972 as was the renovation of Faith 
Hall for a student infirmary and auxiliary services building. 



HISTORY OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 13 

Phoebe Hearst Hall was renovated in the fall of 1972 for a 
classroom building. Most of the classes with the exception of 
science and psychology are held in this building located di- 
rectly across from Lupton Hall. 

Lupton Hall, which contains all the administrative offices 
on the lower level, first floor and second floor, was renovated 
in early 1973. Students can find all the administrative offices 
in this building, including the Office of the Dean, Dean of 
Students, Registrar, Financial Aid and Placement, Admissions, 
Business Office (lower level), Development Office (second 
floor), and the President's Office (second floor). 

Future plans for the development of the Oglethorpe phys- 
ical plant include the addition of a Fine Arts Center and addi- 
tions and renovations to the athletic complexes, including 
Hermance Stadium. 

To all of this, it may be finally added, Oglethorpe enjoys 
the great asset of location in Atlanta— one of the great metro- 
politan centers of the South and one of the most rapidly devel- 
oping 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 high- 
way system being built through the region. With a metropolitan 
population of well over a million, an ideal location in the foot- 
hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and a temperate climate 
throughout the year, the city offers many attractions and cul- 
tural opportunities to the Oglethorpe undergraduate as a part 
of his whole development.

ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY 

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 University those 
applicants who present the strongest evidence of purpose, 
maturity, scholastic ability, and potential for the caliber of col- 
lege work expected at Oglethorpe. In making its judgments, 
the Committee considers the nature of the student's high 
school program, his grades, the recommendations of his coun- 
selors 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 Col- 
lege Entrance Examination Board, or American College Test. 
(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.) 

It is to the applicant's advantage to take the American Col- 
lege Test, or Scholastic Aptitude Test as early as possible 
during his senior year in high school. Details concerning the 
program can be obtained from high school counselors, or by 
writing the American College Testing Program, P.O. Box 451, 
Iowa City, Iowa 52240, or College Entrance Examination Board, 
Box 592, Princeton, N. J. 08540. 

The Oglethorpe application form contains a list of the mate- 
rials which must be submitted by the applicant. No application 
can be considered and acted upon until the items indicated 
have been received. Applications will be considered in order 
of completion, 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 University.

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION 

There are two testing programs through which students may 
earn credit or exemption for required or elective courses. 
These two programs are described below. Any student who 
has questions about these examinations should consult the 
Registrar. No more than sixty semester hours of credit will be 
accepted through these programs. 

COLLEGE LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM - CLEP 

Within this testing program are two categories. The General 
Examinations cover the areas of English Composition, 
Humanities, Mathematics, Natural Science, and Social Sci- 
ence - History. A maximum of thirty semester hours can be 
earned with acceptable scores in the General Examinations. 
Minimum acceptable scores are 500 for each general area and 
50 in each sub-total category. The Subject Examinations are 
designed to measure knowledge in particular courses. 
Minimum acceptable scores of 50 in each subject exam are 
required for credit. 

ADVANCE PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

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

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 admissions procedures and will be 



16 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 



notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee in the 
regular way. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as transfer credit courses 
comparable to the courses we offer which are applicable to a 
liberal arts or a science degree. A two year residence 
requirement is in effect, but may be reduced to one year by 
joint decision of the dean and the chairman of the division in 
which the student will major. Therefore, two years of transfer 
work is the maximum given without such decision, but up to 
three years of transfer work may be granted with such 
decision. Acceptable work must be shown on an official 
transcript and must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as many as thirty hours of 
United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) credits. Stu- 
dents with at least six months active military experience may 
be granted three hours credit for that experience. If the 
student serves for two years or more, he may receive six hours 
credit. 

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 University as those not 
working toward an Oglethorpe degree; they are limited to a 
maximum of five semester courses, after which they must apply 
to the admissions office for a change of status to that of regular 
student or be requested to withdraw from the University. 

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 Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe University. 
Atlanta, Georgia. After receiving the application form, the appli- 
cant should complete and return it with an application fee of 
$20; this fee is not refundable. 

Entering freshmen must also submit the following: letter of 
reference from a high school counselor or teacher; official 



ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY 17 

transcript of high school work; aptitude test scores; statement 
of good health. Transfer students must submit the completed 
application form with the $20.00 application fee (non-refund- 
able), plus the following: letter of reference from the dean of 
the college previously attended; official transcript of each col- 
lege attended; a high school transcript if less than one full year of 
college work has been completed; and a statement of good health. 

When a student has completed the application process, the 
Director of Admissions and the Admissions Committee will 
review the application. Within two weeks, the applicant will be 
notified of the committee's decision. If accepted, the student 
will be required to submit an enrollment deposit to reserve ac- 
commodations for the next term. Dormitory students must submit 
a deposit of $200.00; day students-$ 1 00.00. While the deposit 
is not refundable, it is applicable toward tuition and fees as 
stated in the acceptance letter. 

Additional information may be obtained by contacting the 
Office of Admissions(404) 261-1441 or(404) 233-6864. 



FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS 

Oglethorpe University provides students with an opportunity 
to obtain financial assistance for part of their educational 
expenses. Students may receive several types of aid to make 
up their "package" of financial assistance. 

A financial aid package may include any one or more of the 
following sources of assistance: 

Oglethorpe Merit Awards for Scholarship are awarded in 
amounts of $500, $700, $900, and $1 ,000. For freshmen, these 
awards are based on the applicant's aptitude test scores (SAT 
or ACT). For upperclassmen and transfer students, these 
awards are based on the cumulative grade point average of the 
applicant. Qualities of citizenship and potential for success 
are also part of the basis for awarding these scholarships. The 
OMAS is unique in that scholarships are awarded on the basis 
of merit rather than need and are made available to a great 
many more students than traditional scholarship programs. 
Georgia Tuition Grants are available for Georgia residents 
who attend Oglethorpe. The program was established by an 
Act of the 1971 Georgia General Assembly. The Georgia Higher 
Education Assistance Authority defines the program in this 



18 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

way, "The purpose of the Act is to provide tuition assistance to 
Georgia resident students who are desirous of pursuing their 
higher education goals in a private Georgia college or 
university, but find the financial costs prohibitive due primarily 
to higher tuition of these educational institutions in compari- 
son to public schools which are branches of the University 
System of Georgia." All students must complete a yearly 
application to verify their eligibility for the grant. In the 1974-75 
school year, this grant was $200.00 per semester for full-time, 
eligible students. No Parents Confidential Statement is 
required for this program since family financial need is not a 
factor in determining eligibility. 

Basic Educational Opportunity Grants (B.E.O.G.) are a- 
vailable for Freshmen, Sophomore, and Junior students in 
1975-76. The Basic Grant is a federal aid program intended to 
be the floor in financial assistance. Eligibility is based upon a 
family's financial resources. Applications for this program 
may be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid or from the 
high school guidance office. This aid is administered in the 
form of non-repayable grants. Applications for this program 
must be filed prior to application for any other federal 
program. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (S.E.O.G.) do 
not require repayment. The size of the grant depends on the 
need of the individual recipient. To qualify for an S.E.O.G., a 
student must be from a family with "exceptional financial 
need," must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment, and must 
be capable of maintaining normal progress toward the 
achievement of a degree. Application for these funds are made 
by filing a Parents Confidential Statement. 

National Direct Student Loans (N.D.S.L.), previously called 
National Defense Student Loans, are long-term, low cost 
educational loans to students who have a justified need for 
such assistance. No interest is charged and repayment is 
deferred while the borrower continues as a full-time student. 
Interest is charged at a three per cent annual rate beginning 
nine months after the borrower's education is terminated. 
These loans are available to students who show a demonstrat- 
ed financial need through the Parents Confidential Statement. 
Students electing to serve in the Peace Corps, Vista, or in the 
Armed Forces of the United States may be exempt from 
interest charges and repayment for three years. Cancellation 
benefits may be received by teaching in "poverty" areas that 



ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY 19 

are designated by the U.S. Commissioner of Education, for 
teaching handicapped children, and for teaching in Head Start 
programs. 

College-Work Study Program (C.W.S.P.), permits the stu- 
dent to earn part of his educational expenses. The earnings 
from this program and other financial aid cannot exceed the 
student's financial need. Students eligible for this program 
work part-time on the Oglethorpe campus. 

Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority (G.H.E. 
A. A.) loans and Federally Insured Student Loans (F.I.S.L.) are 
long term loans available through banks, credit unions, and 
other lending institutions. Students desiring to seek a loan in 
this manner should consult with the Director of Financial Aid 
for additional information. 

Georgia Incentive Scholarship as defined by the Georgia 
Higher Education Assistance Authority is a "program created 
by an act of the 1974 Georgia General Assembly in. order to 
establish a program of needs-based scholarships for qualified 
Georgia residents to enable them to attend eligible post- 
secondary institutions of their choice within the state. The 
scholarship awards are designed to provide only a portion of 
the student's resources in financing the total cost of 
post-secondary education." Students who will be a freshman 
or a sophomore, or a former member of the Armed Services in 
1975-76 should obtain an application. 

The application procedure for the Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, National Direct Student Loan, and College 
Work Study Program is as follows: 

1. Apply and be admitted as a regular student. 

2. File a Parents Confidential Statement no later than May 
1st, indicating that Oglethorpe University should receive 
a copy. Independent students do not file a PCS; instead 
they should apply directly to the Financial Aid Office. 

3. Obtain a Basic Grant application and submit for 
determination of eligibility. Upon receipt of eligibility 
report send it to the Director of Financial Aid. All 
applicants for aid must submit an application for a Basic 
Grant. 

4. Upon receipt of an official award letter, students must 
notify the Office of Financial Aid of their plans for 
enrollment and reserve accomodations by submitting 
their advance deposit. 



20 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

Students applying for the Georgia Incentive Scholarship and 
Basic Educational Opportunity Grant will need to submit 
separate applications which may be obtained from a high 
school counselor or the Office of Financial Aid. Students 
applying for the Oglethorpe Merit Award for Scholarship 
should request an application from the Office of Financial Aid. 
The application procedure for all other assistance programs 
may be determined by contacting the Office of Financial Aid. 



THE ESTELLE ANDERSON CROUCH SCHOLARSHIP is an 
endowed scholarship awarded annually to an Oglethorpe 
student who has achieved high academic standards and is 
awarded without regard to financial need. 

THE KATHRYN SHEPARD CROUCH SCHOLARSHIP is 
another scholarship fund endowed by Mr. John W. Crouch, 
'29, and is also awarded annually based upon academic 
achievement. 

THE WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST SCHOLARSHIP is an 
endowed scholarship awarded annually to a deserving student 
who has attained exceptional academic achievement. The 
William Randolph Hearst Foundation, New York, established 
the endowment to provide this scholarship in honor of Mr. 
Hearst, one of the benefactors of Oglethorpe University. 

THE J. MACK ROBINSON SCHOLARSHIP is an endowed 
scholarship awarded annually by Atlanta businessman, J. 
Mack Robinson, to a deserving student who meets the general 
qualifications of the Oglethorpe Merit Scholarship Program. 
Preference is given to students majoring in Business 
Administration. 

THE RICHARD H. PRETZ MEMORIAL MUSIC SCHOLAR- 
SHIP for applied lessons is awarded annually to a deserving 
student based upon high academic achievement and accom- 
plishment in music. 

For further information regarding application procedures 
and qualifications contact the Director of Financial Aid, 
Oglethorpe University.

ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The University recognizes attendance at classes as the re- 
sponsibility of the student. Students are held accountable for 
ail work missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is 
determined by each instructor for his own courses. Such reg- 
ulations 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 require- 
ments of a course are given an "I" (incomplete) at the end of 
the following semester. If the requirements are met by mid- 
semester of the next enrolled term, the "I" is replaced by a 
regular grade. If they are not met within this time, the grade 
automatically becomesan "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 0.0 

FA Failure: Excessive absences 0.0 

W Withdrawn 0.0 

WF Withdrawn Failing 0.0 

I Incomplete 0.0 

P Passing (used in special cases) 

MINIMUM ACADEMIC AVERAGE 

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



22 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of 
minimum averages has been established. Freshmen are 
required to maintain 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. 



GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 
FOR ALL BACHELOR'S DEGREES 

1 . A minimum of 120 semester hours of which the last 60 must 
be earned at Oglethorpe except in exceptional cases (see 
page 15). 

2. All core courses (or the equivalent for transfer students) 
plus a major must be completed. Requirements for majors 
in the various disciplines are listed under each section 
dealing with the majors programs. 

3. A minimum grade point average of 2.2 is necessary. 

4. An application for a diploma must be filed with the Registrar 
at least one semester prior to graduation. 

5. The specific requirements for each degree must be 
completed. 

6. All obligations to the institution must be discharged before 
a degree is granted including a diploma fee. 

7. The student must be approved formally for graduation by 
the faculty. 

MAJOR REQUIREMENTS 

The requirements for specific majors vary among the 
disciplines. Detailed requirements are listed in the sections 
dealing with majors. The student is advised to consult 
frequently with an adviser to satisfy both general and major 
requirements. 

DEGREES 

Oglethorpe offers four degrees to those meeting the 
necessary requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of 
Science, and Bachelor of Business Administration, and 
Masters Degree in Elementary Education. Under the Bachelor

Business Administration, Economics, Elementary Education, 
Secondary Education (with concentrations available in Eng- 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 23 

lish, General Studies, Mathematics, Science and Social Stud- 
ies), English, History, Philosophy, Political Studies, Psy- 
chology, Sociology. Under the Bachelor of Science, majors 
programs are offered in the following areas: Biology, 
Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Medical Technology. 
Under certain conditons, 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 University, 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. Students interested in this possibility should 
consult closely with their advisors to make certain that all 
conditions are met. 

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. 
Academic probation is a strong warning to the student that he 
must make substantial progress toward restoring himself to 
good standing during the following semester or be dismissed 
from the University. 

Evaluation of academic progress will normally be done at 
the end of each academic year but freshmen will be evaluated 
at mid year. Freshmen who receive the grade of F in all 
subjects will be dismissed. Students who do not meet the 
following minimum cumulative average scale will be dis- 
missed for academic reasons: 



Freshmen 


1.0 


Sophomores 


1.4 


Juniors 


1.5 


Seniors 


1.6 



Students who do not meet these minimum requirements at 
the end of the academic year will be notified in writing of 
deficiencies. An opportunity will be given to attend summer 
school classes. If deficiencies are not corrected, the student 
will be dismissed. All dismissals are subject to review by the 
Faculty Council. A student who has been dismissed may be 



24 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

reinstated only upon petition to the Faculty Council. A 
petition may be filed with the registrar after an absence of one 
semester. 

STUDENT'S CLASSIFICATION 

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

0—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 1 2 to 1 6 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. 
Students other than transient and night students taking a re- 
duced load will pay the rate published by the University. 

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. 



25 
STUDENT LIFE 

ORIENTATION 

At the beginning of each semester, new students will be 
involved in an orientation program, under the general super- 
vision of the Dean of Students. Orientation activities are planned 
to introduce the student to both academic and social life at 
Oglethorpe. Several traditional activities are also planned so 
that the parents of new students can become familiar with the 
personnel and purpose of the University. Orientation group 
leaders from among the upperclassmen serve as guides and 
counselors during the period. During the orientation program, 
the student is assigned to a faculty advisor who aids him in 
planning his academic program. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL CONDUCT AND 

RESPONSIBILITY: 

THE ROLE OFTHE COLLEGE ANDTHE STUDENT 

Oglethorpe University takes the position that it is deeply 
concerned with the total development of the individual as a 
competent student and as a highly responsible citizen both 
on the campus and in the community. The University's high 
standards of personal conduct and responsibility are an ex- 
pression of its confidence in each student's potential as a 
human being; however, each student must be as willing to ac- 
cept adult consequences as he is insistent upon being granted 
adult freedom of decision and action. 

Unfortunately, neither knowledge and wisdom nor knowl- 
edge and integrity are synonomous; therefore, a firm grasp 
of academic 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 University's responsibility, or live by its regulations, should 
not apply to the University for admission. Accepted students 
who demonstrate their unwillingness to meet standards will be 
terminated from the University. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL DRESS AND GROOMING 

Institutions of higher education have their own personal- 
ities; 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 University, a 



26 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

private institution, he represents not only himself but also the 
student body, the University, and in some measure, the commu- 
nity in which the University has such deep roots. 

The University takes the position that all students are ex- 
pected 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. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES 

All resident students are required to subscribe to the Stu- 
dent Health and Insurance Plan provided by the University. 

The University 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 med- 
ical assistance for students covered by the student in- 
surance plan. 

A physician visits the infirmary twice a week to make gen- 
eral diagnosis and treatment. In the event additional or major 
medical care is required, the student patient will be referred 
to medical 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 
situation, or other relationships at the University or in the 
community, he will be requested to withdraw. Re-admission 
to the University will be contingent upon acceptable verifica- 
tion that the student is ready to return. The final decision will 
rest with the University. 

OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY STUDENT ASSOCIATION 

Undergraduate life at Oglethorpe is, in a large sense, one of 
a democratic community; student government is mainly 
self-government. Oglethorpe University Student Association, 
Consisting of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treas : 
urer, and Parliamentarian of OUSA and the Presidents of the 
four classes, is the guiding and governing organization of 
student life at the University. Meetings are held regularly and 
notice posted. All students are urged to attend. 

COMMITTEES 

In order to serve the many varied interests of the student 



27 

body, there are four committees for the purpose of planning 
activities in their particular area. 

1. Academic Committee 

2. Social Committee 

3. Athletic Committee 

4. Arts Committee 

All students are welcome to serve on any of the above 
committees and on the student senate. All officers and 
chairmen can be contacted by writing: 

O.S.A. 

Box 458 

University Center 

3000 Wood row Way 

Atlanta, Georgia 30319 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES 

Valuable educational experiences may be gained through 
active participation in approved campus activities and organi- 
zations. All students are encouraged to participate in one or 
more organizations and to the extent that such involvement 
does not deter them from high academic achievement. 
Students are especially encouraged to join professional 
organizations associated with their interests and goals.

Oglethorpe. 

The four fraternities are ChiPhi, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon, and Kappa Alpha. The sorority is Chi Omega. 

These social organizations contribute substantially to the 
spiritual and social betterment of the individual and develop 
college into a richer, fuller experience. Membership in these 
organizations is voluntary and subject to regulations imposed

GENERAL INFORMATION 



SEMESTER SYSTEM 

Oglethorpe University operates under the semester system 
during the academic year. Two summer sessions of five weeks 
each, plus a ten week session in the evening make up the 
summer schedule. 

EVENING PROGRAM 

As a service to the community, the University offers an even- 
ing program covering three terms per year: one during each se- 
mester and one during the summer. Classes meet two nights 
each week (Monday and Wednesday; Tuesday and Thursday) 
with three class periods each night. To qualify for the special 
tuition rate given to evening students, a student must take all 
his courses in the evening. A student taking any course during 
the day will not be classified as an evening student. 

In addition to other major programs listed in this catalogue, 
a major in General Studies is offered. This program requires 
completion of the core requirements and a sufficient number of 
additional course hours to complete the total prescribed for a 
degree. The degree granted will be the Bachelor of Arts in 
General Studies. Because of its flexibility, the General Studies 
program enables the student to concentrate in any selected 
program offered by the University. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

The Department of Continuing Education acts as a commu- 
nity service in providing adult non-credit courses for interested 
people in the community. It is Oglethorpe's desire to insure 
that its academic and physical facilities are made available to 
all mature adults who show a genuine interest in academics.

COURSES OF STUDY 

In the following section, the courses are listed numerically 
by area within their respective Divisions. Each course is desig- 
nated by a four digit number. The first digit indicates the course 
level. (For example: freshman is 1; sophomore, 2, etc.) The 
second and third digits designate the discipline. The fourth digit 
indicates the course number within that discipline. Each level 
of offerings assumes the earlier completion of necessary pre- 
requisites. The number of hours refers to the semester hours 
credit per term allowed for the course. The designation "3 + 3" 
or "4 + 4" indicates that the course carries 6 or 8 semester 
hours of credit, respectively, for two semesters of work. 

MAJORS PROGRAMS 

Upon entering Oglethorpe University each student is 
assigned a faculty advisor who will assist the student in the prep- 
aration of his academic program. Responsibility, however, for 
taking the requisite core and major courses rests exclusively 
with the student.

OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 
METRO LIFE STUDIES 



Courses deal with political, economic, social and intellec- 
tual aspects of life in metropolitan areas of the United States. 
Undergraduates may earn the baccalaureate degree in Metro 
Life Studies. Special students with the baccalaureate degree 
earning 30 hours of work in the Metro Life Studies program 
will receive a major in Metro Life Studies. 

A central theme of American life in the 20th century is the 
increasing complexity of an industrial and urban society. 
Oglethorpe's MLS program offers an opportunity for develop- 
ing an understanding of the broad range of urban and 
suburban problems. The basic objective of the curriculum is a 
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 problems in contemporary American 
society. Graduates may pursue graduate work in urbanology 
or find immediate employment in both public and private 
enterprises concerned with the development of cities. 

Students seeking a major in Metro Life Studies will take 
The American City: A History, State and Local Government, 
Metropolitan Planning, Urban Ecology, and The Community. 
Students must also choose fouradditional Metro Life Studies 
courses.

To insure the orderly completion of the program, the major 
should consult with the appropriate faculty member in the de- 
partment or division at the time of his FIRST registration. It is 
important that each major have his program fully planned from 
the outset so that he may be aware of departmental and divi- 
sional requirements and allowable substitutions and alterna- 
tives. Each major must complete the core requirements within 
the scope of his interpretation by responsible departmental or 
divisional advisors. In addition, each major must complete those 
departmental and divisional requirements as may apply to the 
specific degree.

DIVISION VI-GRADUATE STUDIES 

IN 

ELEMENTARY EDUCATION 

The program leading to the degree Master 
of Arts in elementary education is not now 
an accredited program. As with all beginning 
graduate programs, the program must oper- 
ate for a period of time before it is eligible for 
accreditation and for subsequent considera- 
tion for approval by the state department. 
Graduates are eligible for T5 certification by 
evaluation in Georgia. Oglethorpe is working 
closely with the Southern Association of Col- 
leges and Schools, has prior approval to begin 
the program, and will be a candidate for final 
accreditation in 1974.

94 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

THE GRADUATE DIVISION 

The Graduate Division offers work leading to the degree 
Master of Arts in elementary education. Completion of the 
master's program requires the following steps: 

1. Full admission to the Graduate Division. 

2. Admission to Candidacy. Apply after completion of 12 
semester hours graduate credit at Oglethorpe. 

3. Satisfactory completion of a comprehensive final exam- 
ination. Apply after completion of all required courses 
but not sooner than one semester prior to expected 
graduation. 

4. Completion of 36 semester hours approved credit. Appli- 
cation for diploma should be made during semester prior 
to anticipated completion of degree requirements. 

Organization-The Graduate Division is organized as one of 
the six academic divisions of Oglethorpe University. It was 
created in 1970 upon receipt from the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools of initial approval for Oglethorpe to once 
again offer courses leading to the master's degree. Under this 
authorization, the Graduate Division offers the Master of Arts 
degree in elementary education. 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide 
well-qualified students with the opportunity to obtain the first 
graduate degree, to provide members of the teaching profes- 
sion with the opportunity to enhance their competencies and 
knowledge in the area of elementary education, including the 
opportunity for those teachers not desiring a graduate degree 
to enhance their knowledge and skills. Inherent in the guiding 
philosophy is the assumption that graduate study includes 
more than the passing of prescribed courses and the meeting 
of minimum requirements. Any student who receives a 
graduate degree must possess a broad knowledge of the 
literature of his field of study, be capable of sustained study, 
exhibit the power of independent thinking, and possess 
reasonable knowledge of the techniques of research. 

All graduate work is administered by the Graduate Division, 
which is governed by the Graduate Council under the policies 
of the university. The Graduate Council is the policy-making 
body chosen from the graduate faculty and administration, 
under the leadership of the chairman of the Graduate Division. 
Admission Requirements— Upon recommendation of the 



95 

chairman of the Graduate Council and approval of the 
Graduate Council, a person holding a bachelor's degree from 
an accredited college or university may be admitted to the 
Graduate Division. In addition to general requirements 
prescribed, the applicant must submit transcripts of all 
previous work completed, satisfactory scores on the Graduate 
Record Examination (Aptitude Test), two recommendations 
(form provided) from previous colleges attended and/or 
employers, and, when deemed necessary, take validating 
examinations or preparatory work. Candidates not previously 
prepared for teaching must meet requirements for first 
professional certification before completing requirements for 
the master's degree. 

Procedure— Application forms may be obtained from the 
Office of Admissions of the University. Completed forms should 
be returned to the Office of Admissions as soon as possible 
but at least twenty days prior to the term in which the applicant 
expects to enroll. These forms should be accompanied by a 
$20.00 application fee (non-refundable). All material (completed 
forms, fee, transcripts, and test scores) should be sent directly 
to the Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, 
Georgia 30319. To insure proper consideration, all documents 
must be on hand at least twenty days prior to the proposed time 
of enrollment. All documents become the property of the uni- 
versity and will not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate 
Division in the term indicated on his application, he should 
notify the Office of Admissions of his plans and indicate a new 
date of entrance, if applicable. Otherwise, the original admis- 
sion will be cancelled, the file discontinued, and a new applica- 
tion will be required for admission at a later date. 

Admission to the Graduate Division does not imply ultimate 
acceptance as a candidate for an advanced degree. For admis- 
sion to candidacy, see the section ADMISSION TO 
CANDIDACY. 

Information concerning the administration of the Graduate 
Record Examination may be obtained from the Office of Ad- 
missions or by writing: Education Testing Service, Princeton, 
New Jersey 08540. 

Types of admission— Students may be admitted to the Grad- 
uate Division under any one of the following classifications: 

1. Regular. A student who has a cumulative grade point 
average of at least 2.8 on a 4.0 scale, satisfactory scores 
on the GRE and the recommendation of the chairman 



96 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

of the Graduate Division, and who has completed all 
prerequisites required for admission may be admitted 
as a regular graduate student. 
2. Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of 
the standards required for admission as a regular stu- 
dent or a qualified senior may be admitted under condi- 
tions specified at the time of admission by the chairman 
of the Graduate Council and approved by the Graduate 
Council. The provisionally admitted student may apply 
to the chairman of the Graduate Division for reclass- 
ification when the conditions have been met. Graduate 
courses completed by the provisional student may be 
counted toward a degree after the student has been 
reclassified as a regular student. 

A senior within six semester hours of completing re- 
quirements for the bachelor's degree may be permitted 
to enroll in courses for graduate credit provided that: 

(1) he has the permission of the head of the education 
department and the chairman of the Graduate Division, 

(2) he is otherwise qualified for admission to graduate 
study except for the degree, and (3) his total load in a 
semester would not exceed fifteen semester hours. 
Under no circumstances may a course be used for both 
graduate and undergraduate credit. 

Other 

1 . Transient. A student in good standing in another recog- 
nized graduate school who wishes to enroll in the 
Graduate Division of Oglethorpe University and who 
plans to return thereafter to the former institution may 
be admitted as a transient graduate student. In lieu of 
full transcripts and regular applications he must submit 
a transient student application form completed by his 
graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for 
credit. Any student admitted on this basis should under- 
stand that his registration terminates as soon as he has 
completed the work authorized by the institution from 
which he is seeking a degree. If he later elects to seek 
a degree from Oglethorpe University, he must make 
formal application for admission and may petition to 
have credit earned as a transient student applied toward 
the degree at Oglethorpe University. 

2. Unclassified. A degree holder who is not a prospective 
candidate for a degree at Oglethorpe University, such 



97 

as a person seeking to meet certification requirements 
(not applicable until final accreditation received) or local 
school requirements, may be admitted without present- 
ing test scores or recommendations. Credit earned by 
a student in this category may be counted toward the 
degree only with consent of the Graduate Council. 

REGISTRATION 

Procedure— Registration dates for each term are listed on 
page 3 of this publication. Several weeks before the beginning 
of each term, students may obtain from the Registrars Office 
a schedule of classes for that particular term. 

Courses and Loads — Courses numbered 6000 are open 
only to graduate students. Arts and Sciences courses with 4000 
numbers carry either undergraduate or graduate credit; grad- 
uate students, however, are expected to do more extensive 
reading, prepare additional reports, and/or produce papers or 
other projects requiring more extensive research. 

The maximum course load for any graduate student is 
fifteen credit hours per semester or six credit hours in a summer 
term. Any student serving as a graduate assistant must carry a 
reduced load. A person working more than thirty hours per 
week normally may not register for more than six hours credit 
per semester. In all cases, the graduate student is urged to 
register for only the number of hours which he can success- 
fully complete. 

ADVISEMENT 

Upon admission to the Graduate Division, each student is 
assigned to a member of the graduate faculty in education who 
servesasadvisorandguidesthestudentin planning his program 
of study. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The quality of work of courses taken in the graduate program 
is indicated by the marks A, B, C, and F. Grades of I and W are 
reserved for special cases. Listed below are requirements for 
each of these grades: 

A— Excellent, with four quality points for each credit hour 
B— Good, with three quality points for each credit hour 
C— Poor, with two quality points for each credit hour 
F— Unsatisfactory work or unofficial withdrawal 
I — Incomplete may be used if the student, because of un- 
usual circumstances, is unable to complete the required 
work in the prescribed time interval, provided he was 



98 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

doing satisfactory work. Such a grade must be removed 
by the completion of the work within one year or the I 
becomes an F. 
W— Official withdrawal may be permitted if the student's 
progress is interrupted by illness or other emergencies 
which prevent his pursuing any course for which he is 
registered. 

ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

Candidates for the master's degree must meet the following 
academic standards: 

1 . The student's overall grade point average for work sub- 
mitted in a graduate program must be 3.0 or higher. 

2. If, in any case, the candidate fails to maintain satis- 
factory academic standards, his record shall be reviewed 
by the Graduate Council to determine whether or not 
he shall be allowed to continue in a graduate program. 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY 

Application for admission to candidacy would be given or 
refused following an examination of the overall work of the 
student and careful review of his completed work at Oglethorpe. 
Application for the Master of Arts degree in elementary educa- 
tion must be filed with the chairman of the Graduate Division 
after the student has six to twelve semester hours of graduate 
study at Oglethorpe University. Admission to candidacy would 
be given or refused following an examination of the overall

completed work. Notice of action taken on application for ad- 
mission to candidacy would be given in writing to the student 
and to his advisor. The student seeking the Master of Arts 
degree in elementary education must furnish certification by 
the chairman of the Education Department that he is eligible
