Tradition, Purpose 
and Goals 




Tradition, Purpose, and Goals 

Oglethorpe derives its institutional purpose from an awareness and 
appreciation of the University's heritage and from an analysis of the needs 
of contemporary society. The goals of the educational program and of other 
component parts of the University are based on this sense of institutional 
purpose. 

The Oglethorpe Tradition 

Three main ideas or models of what higher education ought to be have 
shaped American colleges and universities. The first is the model of the English 
college, particularly in the form developed at Oxford and Cambridge in the 
18th and 19th centuries. Most of the older institutions in the United States 
were patterned on the English colleges of that period. Many observers have 
concluded that this is the finest type of collegiate education produced by 
Western civilization. 

The second idea is that of the German university, especially of the 19th 
century. This model, which has had enormous influence on American univer- 
sities, stresses professional education (as in medicine and law), graduate study 
leading to the Ph.D. degree, and specialized research. The German University 
idea was imported into the United States by Johns Hopkins and other institu- 
tions in the last century and has left its mark on every college and university 
in this country. 

The third idea or model is that of the land-grant college, a uniquely 
American institution created by the Morrill Act, passed by Congress in 1862. 
This model emphasizes large-scale technical education and service to 
agriculture and industry. It has contributed especially to education in such 
fields as engineering and agriculture and has been the foundation on which 
many of the state universities have been built. 

Oglethorpe University identifies itself with the tradition of the English 
college. Established in 1835 and named after General lames Edward 
Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, the University was patterned on Corpus 
Christi College, Oxford, General Oglethorpe's alma mater. It would be 
overstating the matter to say that Oglethorpe University has been untouched 
by the other two conceptions of higher education, but it has certainly been 
shaped principally by the English tradition of collegiate education. 

What are the distinctive features of that tradition? Hundreds of books 
have been written on the subject, perhaps the most influential of which is 
John Henry Newman's The \dea of a University, one of the great educational 
classics. Briefly stated, four characteristics have made this kind of college 
widely admired: 

1) Colleges in the English tradition emphasize broad education for 
intelligent leadership. They believe that this is a more useful 
undergraduate education for the able young person than technical 
training for a specific job. 

2) Colleges such as Oglethorpe stress the basic academic com- 
petencies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning — and the 
fundamental fields of knowledge — the arts and sciences. These 
are essential tools of the educated person. 

4 




3) Close relationships between teacher and student are indispensable 
to this type of education. A teacher is much more than a conveyor 
of information — the invention of the printing press made that notion 
of education obsolete. Rather, the most important function of the 
teacher is to stimulate intellectual activity in the student and to 
promote his development as a mature person. Factory-like instruc- 
tion, conducted in huge classes, is the very antithesis of the English 
tradition. 

4) A collegiate education is far more than a collection of academic 
courses. It is a process of development in which campus leader- 
ship opportunities, residential life, athletics, formal and informal 
social functions, aesthetic experiences, and contact with students 
from other cultures, in addition to classroom exercises, all play 
important roles. Versatility and ability to lead are important goals 
of this type of undergraduate education. 

Two other aspects of Oglethorpe's tradition were contributed by Philip 
Weltner, President of the University from 1944 to 1953. Oglethorpe, he said, 
should be "a small college which is superlatively good." Only at a small col- 
lege with carefully selected students and faculty, he believed, could young 
persons achieve their fullest intellectual development through an intense 
dialogue with extraordinary teachers. Thus, a commitment to limited size and 
superior performance are important elements of the Oglethorpe tradition. 



Purpose: Education for a Changing Society 

While an institution may take pride in a distinguished heritage, it is also 
essential that its educational program prepare young people to function 
effectively in our complex and rapidly changing society. What are the re- 
quirements of an education intended to inform and enrich lives and careers 
that will be conducted in the remainder of this century and beyond? 

Many commentators on contemporary social conditions and future 
trends agree that the rapidly changing society in which we live places a 
premium on adaptability. Persons in positions of leadership must be able to 
function effectively in changing circumstances. Rigid specialization, with its 
training in current practice, ill prepares the graduate for responsibilities in such 
a society. The broadly educated person, schooled in fundamental principles, 
is better equipped to exercise leadership in a world that is being transformed 
by high technology and new information. This point has been made persua- 
sively by John Naisbitt in the first chapter of his notable book Megatrends. One 
of the underlying trends he identifies in our society is that "we are moving 
from the specialist who is soon obsolete to the generalist who can adapt." 

Oglethorpe emphasizes the preparation of the humane generalist — the 
kind of leader needed by a complex and changing society. Our purpose is 
to produce graduates who are broadly educated in the fundamental fields 
of knowledge and the basic concepts and principles of their disciplines and 
who are prepared to exercise responsible leadership in public and private life. 

The University limits its educational program to the arts and sciences, 
business administration, and teacher education. It defines its primary role as 
the conduct of a program of undergraduate education for men and women 
of above-average ability and traditional college age. In addition, a Master's 
degree in teacher education and programs of continuing education for adults 
are offered as services to the local community. 

Goals 

Educational programs at Oglethorpe seek to produce graduates who 
display abilities, skills, intellectual attitudes, and sensitivities which are related 
to the University's purpose. The core curriculum of general education, which 
is required in all baccalaureate programs, is designed to develop the following: 

1) The ability to comprehend English prose at an advanced level. 

2) The ability to convey ideas in writing and in speech accurately, gram- 
matically, and persuasively. 

3) Skill in reasoning logically about important matters. 

4) An understanding of the values and principles that have shaped 
Western civilization and of the methods employed in historical 
inquiry. 

5) A knowledge and appreciation of great literature, especially the 
great literature of the English-speaking world. 

6) An appreciation of one or more of the arts and an understanding 
of artistic excellence. 

7) An acquaintance with the methods of inquiry of mathematics and 
science and with the results of the efforts of scientists to under- 
stand physical and biological phenomena. 



8) An understanding of the most thoughtful reflections on right and 
wrong and an allegiance to principles of right conduct. 

9) A basic knowledge of our economic, political, and social systems 
and of the psychological and sociological influences on human 
behavior. 

All undergraduate programs also require the student to develop a deeper 
grasp of one or more fields of knowledge organized coherently as a major. 
The student's major may be pursued in a single field, such as biology, 
economics, or English, or it may cut across two or more traditional fields (as 
an interdisciplinary or individually planned major). 

The curriculum and extra-curricular life are structured to engender in 
students the following: 

1) The willingness and ability to assume the responsibilities of leader- 
ship in public and private life, including skill in organizing the ef- 
forts of other persons in behalf of worthy causes. 

2) An inclination to continue one's learning after graduation from col- 
lege and skill in the use of books and other intellectual tools for 
that purpose. 

3) A considered commitment to a set of career and life goals. 

4) An awareness of the increasingly international character of contem- 
porary life and skill in interacting with persons of diverse cultural 
backgrounds. 

The graduate program in teacher education and the continuing educa- 
tion program assist adult learners in pursuing their educational goals and 
career advancement. Each of these programs has particular goals which are 
appropriate to its educational role. 

The success of Oglethorpe alumni in their subsequent education, a wide 
variety of careers, and community life attests to the soundness of this approach 
to education. 




Oglethorpe was chartered on December 21, 1835, as a result of the 
efforts of a group of Georgia Presbyterians. The founders named the new 
college after General James Edward Oglethorpe, the distinguished leader of 
Georgia in its earliest days. 

The University began operations on January 1 , 1 838, at Midway, a small 
town near Milledgeville, then the state capital, with 1 2 5 students and a faculty 
of six. 

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

Oglethorpe produced a steady stream of distinguished graduates during 
the early years, the most famous being the poet Sidney Lanier. A member 
of the class of 1860, Lanier is reported to have remarked that the greatest 
intellectual impulse of his life came to him during his college days at Oglethorpe. 

By the close of the 1850s, the institution had reached a new plateau 
of financial stability and academic soundness, but its life and service were 
suddenly cut short in the 1 860s as the University became a casualty of war. 
Her students marched away to become Confederate soldiers; her endowment 
was lost in Confederate bonds; her buildings were converted to barracks and 
a hospital. Toward the end of the war General William T. Sherman's army, 
during its destructive march to the sea, visited the University but left the 
property intact. 

In 1866 an effort was made to revive Oglethorpe, first at Midway and 
then by relocation in Atlanta. However, the ravages of war, together with 
the disruptions of Reconstruction, presented obstacles too great to overcome, 
and in 1872 Oglethorpe closed its doors again. 

The next chapter of Oglethorpe's history begins with the determination 
of Thomwell Jacobs, a noted Presbyterian minister, to reestablish Oglethorpe. 
He enlisted the support of Presbyterian churches throughout the South and 
East and of influential individuals and groups in Atlanta. His vision materialized 
in 1915 with the laying of the cornerstone of the first building (later named 
Phoebe Hearst Memorial Hall) on the present campus. Oglethorpe alumni 
from the classes of 1860 and 1861 were present for the historic ceremony, 
thus linking the old Oglethorpe with the new. 

Dr. Jacobs was subsequently named president, serving in that capacity 
until 1944. During that time the University grew in size and reputation. 
Throughout the 1920's the institution received substantial contributions from 
individuals such as J. T. Lupton, Mrs. Robert J. Lowry, and William Randolph 
Hearst, Sr. With these and other contributions several buildings were 
constructed, including Lupton Hall, site of the present administration building; 
Lowry Hall, the University's library; and Hearst Hall, which now serves as 
a classroom facility. 

Oglethorpe, under the leadership of Dr. Jacobs, was soon recognized 
as one of the region's most innovative educational institutions. In 1931. WJTL, 
one of the first campus radio stations in the United States, was established 
at Oglethorpe. A few years later, Dr. Jacobs began his work on "The Crypt 



of Civilization.'' located in a vault in Phoebe Hearst Hall. This is a collection 
of books and other objects representative of 20th Century America, which 
is to remain sealed until the year 8113. when it will be opened for the benefit 
of historians. The project was reported nationally and internationally and was 
supported from its inception by the Scientific American. General David Sarnoff. 
founder and Chairman of the Board of the Radio Corporation of America 
(RCA), spoke at the dedication of the Crypt in 1938. which was broadcast 
over the National Broadcasting Company network. 

Several other interesting projects began during the Jacobs administra- 
tion, including an unsuccessful attempt to relocate the remains of General 
lames Oglethorpe from England to the Oglethorpe campus. In the late 1 930s 
the "Exceptional Education Experiment'' was instituted with the aim of adding 
greater depth and meaning to the educational process for a group of gifted 
students. The University received national attention in 1932, when Franklin 
D. Roosevelt spoke on the campus and received an honorary degree prior 
to his election as president that year. 

A new chapter opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1 944 when Philip 
Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a group of faculty associates, 
including Gerhart Niemeyer, George Seward, and Wendell Brown, initiated 
a new and exciting approach to undergraduate education called the 
"Oglethorpe Idea.'' This concept was based on the conviction that education 
should encompass the twin aims of making a life and making a living, and 
toward these ends a program of studies was developed. 

The University continued to make steady progress during the 
presidencies of J. Whitney Bunting, Donald Wilson, Donald C. Agnew, and 
Paul R. Beall. Throughout this period strong teachers were appointed, the 
academic program was further developed, and there was a gradual expansion 
of the size of the student body. Special mention should also be made of 
George Seward, who contributed importantly to the educational development 
of the University, as a longtime dean and an acting president. 

The presidency changed hands once again in 1967, when Paul Kenneth 
Vonk assumed office. Keeping pace with the growing demands of increased 
enrollment. Dr. Vonk initiated a program of physical expansion unparalleled 
in the University's long history. During his administration the following 
buildings were completed: five men's dormitories — Jacobs, Weltner. Alumni. 
Oglethorpe, and Trustees; a beautiful university center; a women's dormitory. 
Traer Hall; and a science center, Goslin Hall. In addition, all of the older 
buildings were extensively remodeled, giving Oglethorpe an attractive campus 
and an excellent physical plant. 

Manning M. Pattillo. Jr., was inaugurated in 1 975 as Oglethorpe's twelfth 
president. During his administration special emphasis has been placed on 
liberal education as a rigorous intellectual experience and as preparation for 
leadership. The expansion of Oglethorpe's program of continuing education, 
the attraction of students from abroad, increasing selectivity in admissions, 
and the acceleration of financial development are other areas that have 
received particular attention. 

Oglethorpe University has had a long and exciting history and has 
produced more than its share of distinguished graduates in business, public 
affairs, education, medicine, religion, law, and other fields. It looks forward 
to an increasingly important role as one of the better private colleges in 
its region.

The Emerson Student Center 

The Emerson Student Center is the hub of campus life. It houses the 
student lounges, television room, recreational facilities, snack bar, post office, 
student activity offices, conference rooms, the cafeteria, and dining room. 



Lupton Hall 



Lupton Hall, built in 1920 and named in honor of John Thomas Lupton, 
was one of the three original buildings on the present Oglethorpe University 
campus. It was renovated in 1973 and contains all administrative offices and 
an auditorium with seating for 3 50 persons. The University Business Office 
is located on the lower level of Lupton Hall; the office of the Dean of the 
Faculty, the Registrar, and the Admissions Office are on the first floor: the 
Office of the President, Vice President for Administration, Dean of Community 
Life, Office of Counseling and Career Development, Offices of Development, 
Public Relations, Alumni Affairs, and two lecture halls are on the second floor. 
The Office of Financial Aid and faculty offices of the Division of Economics 
and Business Administration are on the third floor. 

The original cast bell carillon in the Lupton tower has 42 bells which 
chime the quarter hours and a daily afternoon concert. 



13 




Phoebe Hearst Hall 



Phoebe Hearst Hall was built in 1915 in the handsome neo-Gothic 
architecture that dominates the Oglethorpe campus. The building is named 
in honor of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, the mother of William Randolph Hearst. Sr. 

It was renovated in the fall of 1972 for a classroom and faculty office 
building. Most classes, with the exception of science and mathematics, are 
held in this building which is located directly across from Lupton Hall. 
Additional renovation for a student-faculty lounge and an expanded computer 
center was completed in 1977. The University book store is located on the 
lower level of the building. 

The dominant feature of the building is the beautiful Great Hall, the site 
of many traditional and historic events at Oglethorpe. Located on the ground 
floor of the building is the much-publicized Crypt of Civilization. This capsule 
was sealed on May 28, 1940. and is not to be opened until May 28. 8113. 



Goslin Hall 



Goslin Hall was completed in 1971 and houses the Division of Science. 
Laboratories for biology, chemistry and physics, and modern lecture halls are 
located in the building. Goslin Hall was named in honor of Dr. Roy N. Goslin, 
Professor Emeritus of Physics, for his many years of dedicated work for the 
college and the nation. A new physics laboratory, made possible by a grant 
from the Olin Foundation, was opened in 1979. 



14 



Traer Hall 

Built in 1969, Traer Hall is a three-story women's residence which houses 
168 students. Construction of the building was made possible through the 
generosity of the late Wayne S. Traer, Oglethorpe University alumnus of the 
Class of 1928. These semi-private rooms open onto a central plaza courtyard. 
As are all buildings on the Oglethorpe campus, Traer Hall is completely 
air-conditioned. 

Goodman Hall 

Goodman Hall was built in 1956 and renovated in 1970, when it was 
transformed from a men's into a women's residence hall. The building contains 
27 rooms and is used to house some Junior and Senior women. Private rooms 
are available. 

Men's Residence Hall Complex 

Five men's residence halls are situated around the upper quadrangle. 
Two of the buildings were named for former Oglethorpe presidents, Dr. Philip 
Weltner and Dr. Thornwell Jacobs. Constructed in 1968, these buildings were 
refurbished in 1977. The three-story structures house all male resident students. 
A $1.2 million redesign of the complex began in 1979. 

Faith Hall 

The Student Health Center is located on the upper level of Faith Hall, 
together with art studios and lecture rooms. The lower level of Faith Hall houses 
the maintenance facility. The building was renovated in 1972 to include 
overnight facilities for students in the health center. 



R. E. Dorough Field House 



The Dorough Field House is the site of intercollegiate basketball, 
intramural and recreational sports, and large campus gatherings such as 
concerts and commencement exercises. Built in 1960, this structure underwent 
major renovation in 1979. The building is named for the late R. E. Dorough, 
a former Trustee of the University. 



Athletic Facilities 



Intercollegiate soccer and intramural softball are played on Anderson 
Field which is between Hermance Stadium and the field house. The intramural 
football field is located behind the men's residence hall complex. Three tennis 
courts are adjacent to the field house and below them is a six lane, all-weather 
reslite track. A student sponsored physical fitness center is located in the 
basement of Lupton Hall.

Admissions 



The admissions policy of Oglethorpe University is based on an individual 
selection process. Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students 
from all sections of the 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 applicants who present strong evidence of purpose, maturity 
scholastic ability and probable success at Oglethorpe. 



Freshman Applicants 



Admission to the undergraduate division of the University may be gained 
by presenting evidence of successful completion of secondary school work 
and by providing the results of the College Entrance Examination Board's 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the results of the American College Testing 
Program Assessment (ACT). 

Arrangements to take the SAT or ACT may be made through a secondary 
school guidance counselor or by writing directly to one of the testing agencies. 
For SAT write to the College Board, Box 592, Princeton, New lersey 08540, 
or Box 1025, Berkeley, California 90701. For ACT write to American College 
Testing Program, P.O. Box 451, Iowa City, Iowa 52240. It is to the applicant's 
advantage to take one of the tests late in the junior year or early in the senior 
year of high school. 

Applicants should normally have or be in the process of completing a 
secondary school program including appropriate courses in English, 
mathematics and/or science, and social studies. While an admissions decision 
may be based on a partial secondary school transcript, a final transcript must 
be sent to the admissions office by the candidate's school, showing evidence 
of academic work completed and official graduation. 

The Oglethorpe application contains a reference form and a list of other 
materials which must be submitted by the applicant. No application will be 
considered and acted upon until the items indicated have been received. 

Applications will be considered as they become reviewable, and the 
applicant will be notified of the decision as soon as action has been taken. 



Transfer Students 



Students who wish to transfer to Oglethorpe from other accredited 
colleges are welcome, provided they are in good standing at the last institution 
attended. They are expected to follow regular admissions procedures and 
will be notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee in the regular way 

The same information is required of the transfer student as for the 
entering freshman, with the following exception: 

High school records and test scores are not required of students 
having more than one full year of transferable credit. 

Transfer students must submit transcripts of all current and previous 
college work. A separate official transcript from each college attended must 
be received before any action will be taken on the application. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as transfer credit courses comparable 
to University courses which are applicable to a degree program offered at 

17 



Oglethorpe. A two-year residence requirement is in effect but may be reduced 
to one year by joint decision of the Dean of the Faculty 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. 

Transfer students on probation or exclusion from another institution will 
not be accepted, with the following exception: 

Students who have not been enrolled in any institution for five 
years will be considered for admission by the Admissions 
Committee. 

Transfer students having a GPA of less than 2.3 (on a 4.0 scale) will 
automatically be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. 

Oglethorpe does not accept a "D" grade as transfer credit, unless a 
student has graduated from an accredited junior college, or a "D" grade is 
followed by a "C" grade or better in a normal sequence course (e.g., General 
Biology I and II). 

Transfer students who have earned the Associate of Arts degree at an 
accredited junior college will be awarded two years of credit. The remaining 
two years of academic credit will be determined by the Dean of the Faculty 
in consultation with the Registrar, the appropriate division chairman, and the 
student. Junior college graduates with strong academic records are encouraged 
to apply for admission. All financial aid awards and scholarships are open 
to transfer students as well as freshmen. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as many as 30 hours of United States

Transient students may take any course offered by the University

an extended absence are encouraged to apply. 

Admission is offered in the fall, spring, and summer terms. Interviews 
are required to determine the special needs of these students. 

Two special programs are offered as needed for adults who desire to 
re-enter the academic environment. One is a study skills workshop which

time management, reading improvement, note-taking, and test-taking. The 
other program is a seminar that covers topics like financial planning, personal

or exemption for required or elective courses. These two programs are 
described below. Any student who has questions about these examinations

ment grades of 3, 4, or 5; neither credit nor exemption will be given for a 
grade of 2; maximum credit to be allowed to any student for advanced place-

Programs 



Oglethorpe University provides students with an opportunity to obtain 
financial assistance for part of their educational expenses. The Financial Aid 
Form (FAF) is the common form by which students may apply for all campus- 
based programs (National Direct Student Loans, Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grants, College Work-Study) and at the same time, apply for the 
Pell Grant (Basic Educational Opportunity Grant) and the Georgia Incentive 
Scholarship if a resident. In completing the Financial Aid Form, the student 
will receive an acknowledgement from College Scholarship Service and his 
Student Aid Report for the Pell Grant Program. When the report is received, 
it should be forwarded to the Director of Financial Aid. Students may receive 
several types of aid to complete their "package" of financial assistance. 

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

Pell Grant (Basic Educational Opportunity Grant) is a federal aid 
program intended to be the floor in financial assistance. Eligibility is based 
upon a family's financial resources and a rationing formula published by the 
government. Applications for this program may be obtained from the Office 
of Financial Aid or from a high school guidance office. This aid is administered 
in the form of non-repayable grants. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) do not require 
repayment. The size of the grant depends on the need of the individual 
recipient. To qualify for an SEOG, a student 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 is made by filing 
a Financial Aid Form. 

National Direct Student Loans (NDSL), are long-term, low-cost educa- 
tional loans to students who have demonstrated need for such assistance. 
No interest is charged and repayment is deferred while the borrower continues 
as a half-time student. Interest is charged at a five per cent annual rate be- 
ginning six months after the borrower's education is terminated. These loans 
are available to students who show a demonstrated financial need through 
the Financial Aid Form. Students electing to serve in the Peace Corps, a vol- 
unteer under Title 1 - Part A of the Domestic Volunteer Service Act, a full- 
time volunteer in a similar tax-exempt organization 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 are designated by the U.S. Commissioner of Education, for teaching 
handicapped children, and for teaching in Head Start Programs. 

College Work-Study Program (CWSP) permits a student to earn part 
of the 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 Incentive Scholarship (GIS), as defined by the Georgia Student 
Finance Authority is a "program created by an act of the 1974 Georgia General 
Assembly in order to establish a program of need-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 de- 



23 



signed to provide only a portion of the student's resources in financing the 
total cost of post-secondary education. 

Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG) is available for Georgia 
residents who attend full-time and seek their degree at 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 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 cost prohibitive due primarily to high 
tuition of these educational institutions in comparison 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 1983-84 school 
year, this grant was $700 per academic year. Financial need is not a factor in 
determining eligibility. A separate application is required. 

Guaranteed Student Loans (GSL) and Federally Insured Student Loans 
(FISL) 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. A student 
must earn 30 semester hours each 12 months in order to continue to receive 
this loan. 

Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) are relatively long- 
term loans available through banks, credit unions, and other lending 
institutions. Parents desiring to seek a loan from this program should consult 
with the Office of Financial Aid for additional information. 

Oglethorpe Scholars Awards (OSA) are awarded in amounts of $500 
to $2000. 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. 
Participation in activities, leadership, citizenship, and potential for success 
constitute important criteria for awarding these scholarship's. The OSA 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. 

Presidential Scholarships provide a stipend as high as 80 per cent of 
tuition for the four years of undergraduate study. To receive this award, a 
candidate must rank in the top 1 per cent of his graduating class, have achieved 
a combined score of at least 1200 on the SAT or a composite score of 28 
on the ACT. and have demonstrated superior leadership qualities in secondary 
school. These scholarships are awarded by the President of the University 
upon the nomination by the Director of Admissions and with the unqualified 
recommendation of the candidate's secondary school. 

Ty Cobb Educational Foundation Scholarship Program. Only students 
who are residents of Georgia and who have completed at least one year of 
B' quality or higher work in an accredited college are eligible to apply for 
Ty Cobb Scholarships. No applications from undergraduate students who are 
married will be considered. The Faculty Scholarship Committee makes 
recommendations for these scholarships each year. 

Dual-degree students in art and engineering will not be allowed to extend 
Oglethorpe scholarship and funds to other institutions after fall semester. 1982.

A student determined by the Director of Financial Aid not to be meeting 
these standards will not receive financial assistance. However, a determination 
may be withheld for a semester if illness, injury, or disability can be proven 
to be factors contributing directly to the student's poor performance. 

Students not making satisfactory progress may re-establish eligibility 
when they have earned the required 24 hours and obtained the respective 
cumulative grade-point average. All applicants who re-establish their eligibility

Navy and Marine Corps 
Reserve Officer Training 



The following program is available to Oglethorpe students on the campus 
of the Georgia Institute of Technology. Interested students should contact the 
chairperson of the Department of Naval Science at the Georgia Institute of 
Technology. 

General Information 

The naval officer education program offers students the opportunity to 
qualify for service as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine 
Corps. The program consists of a standardized curriculum designed to 
complement and assist academic pursuits by imparting knowledge of the naval 
environment and fostering an understanding of the role of the Navy and Marine 
Corps in national security. Upon graduation, the student is commissioned and 
ordered to active duty involving flying, nuclear propulsion, surface warfare 
or to a staff specialty. 

Students in the program are enrolled in one of the three categories out- 
lined below. An orientation period for all new NROTC students is conducted 
during registration week prior to the fall quarter. 

Scholarship Students 

Scholarship students are appointed midshipmen, USNR, after nationwide 
competition. They have their tuition, fees and textbooks paid for by the Navy 
for a period not exceeding four years, are uniformed at government expense 
and receive retainer pay at the rate of $100 per month. Students must obligate 
themselves to, complete the prescribed naval science curriculum, to make a 
cruise of from six to eight weeks each summer, to accept a commission as 
Ensign, USN, or Second Lieutenant, USMC, upon graduation, and to serve 
on active duty for four years after commissioning unless released earlier by 
the Navy Department. At the end of this period their active duty obligation 
to the Navy or Marine Corps is fulfilled. If they do not desire to remain on 
active duty in the regular Navy or Marine Corps, they are ordered to inactive 
duty in the Navy or Marine Corps Reserve. 

College Program Students 

College program students are enrolled under the provision of Public Law 
88-647. The college program can be entered during the freshman year or, 
upon qualification, prior to April 1 of the sophomore year. Qualified 
sophomores attend eight weeks of active duty schooling during the summer 
before their junior year so they can join their classmates on an equal footing 
in the junior year naval science classes. Prior to starting the junior year, the 
college program student is required to enlist in the U.S. Naval Reserve for 
a period of six years. The student must agree to serve on active duty for not 
less than three years after appointment to commissioned rank in the U.S. Naval 
Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve and to retain that commission until the sixth 
anniversary of receipt of original commission. 

College program students are uniformed at government expense and, 
during their junior and senior years, receive retainer pay of $100 per month. 
They must complete the prescribed naval science curriculum, make a cruise 
of approximately six weeks during the summer after the junior year, and upon 

35 



graduation accept a commission as Ensign. USNR or Second Lieutenant. 
USMCR. If they desire, after receiving their reserve commission college 
program students may apply for a commission in the regular Navy or Marine 
Corps. 

All college program students are under constant consideration for award 
of a scholarship. Sophomore students who attend the eight weeks of schooling 
during the summer before their junior year may be awarded a scholarship 
on the basis of superior performance during schooling. 

Naval Science Students 

Any regularly enrolled undergraduate student may enroll as a naval 
science student. Those enrolled as naval science students take naval science 
courses as electives and have no contract with the Navy. They have no 
assurance of ultimate commissioning nor do they derive any of the financial 
benefits available to scholarship and college program students. 

Selection Procedure 

Scholarship students are selected in nationwide competition based on 
SAT or ACT scores. The NROTC at Georgia Tech has no part in this selection 
although information about the scholarship program is available. 

The professor of naval science may annually nominate several college 
program students to the Chief of Naval Education and Training for a scholar- 
ship. To apply for the college program, a student must be enrolled at Georgia 
Tech or attending an accredited college or university in the near vicinity and 
be at least 17 and not over 21 years of age. Applicants are selected to fill 
the quota based on physical qualifications, interview by naval officers, score 
on SAT and high school record. Applicants for the college program should 
apply at the Naval Armory during the designated days of freshman orientation 
week for the fall quarter.

Leadership Scholarships 



Leadership Scholarships are available to students with superior academic 
ability and special talents in important fields of extracurricular activity. The 
program will include such activities as debating and public speaking, publi- 
cations, both journalistic and literary; elective office, including student govern- 
ment; choral performance; social service; and athletics. A fundamental aim 
of Oglethorpe University is to prepare students for leadership roles in society. 
One way of promoting this purpose is to give special recognition to students 
who demonstrate leadership capabilities as undergraduates. Scholarships in 
amounts up to full tuition and room and board are awarded to superior 
students with good character and leadership capability who can contribute 
significantly to one of the fields of extracurricular activity. The individual 
amounts of these awards vary. It is the intent of this program to provide the 
difference between the amount of other assistance, if any, and the annual cost 
of attending Oglethorpe. Students must be nominated by members of the 
faculty or staff in order to be considered for an award. 

Recipients of funds from this program will be expected to maintain 
specified levels of academic achievement and to continue to make significant 
contributions to their respective activities. Each award is for one year, but 
can be renewed on the basis of an annual evaluation of academic and other 
performance by the Director of Financial Aid. 



38 



Fees and Costs 



The fees, costs, and dates listed below are for 1985-86. 

The tuition charged by Oglethorpe University represents only 61 per 
cent of the actual expense of educating each student, the balance coming 
from endowment income, gifts, and other sources. Thus, every Oglethorpe 
undergraduate is the beneficiary of a hidden scholarship. At the same time. 
7 5 per cent of the students are awarded additional financial assistance in the 
form of scholarships, grants, and loans from private, governmental, or 
institutional sources. 

The tuition is $2,715 per semester. Room and board is $1,490 per 
semester. Students who desire single rooms are assessed an additional $3 50 
per semester in all residence halls except Goodman Hall. Jacobs Hall, and 
Weltner Hall. In these, the single room charge is an additional $290 per semester. 

The tuition of $2.71 5 is applicable to all students taking 12-16 semester 
hours. These are classified as full-time students. Students taking less than 12 
hours are referred to the section on Part-Time Fees. Students taking more than 
16 hours during a semester are charged $90 for each additional hour. Payment 
of tuition and fees is due two weeks prior to Registration Day each semester. 
Failure to make the necessary payments will result in the cancellation of the 
student's registration. Students receiving financial aid are required to pay the 
difference between the amount of their aid and the amount due by the 
deadline. Students and parents desiring to pay expenses in installments should 
contact their lending institutions or other sources such as Tuition Plan, Inc., 
or EFI-Fund Management. New students who require on-campus housing for 
the fall term are required to submit an advance deposit of $200. New 
commuting students are required to submit an advance deposit of $100. Such 
deposits are not refundable. However, one-half of the deposit is credited to 
the student's account for the fall term. The other half is credited to the account 
for the spring term. 

Upon payment of the room and board fees, each student is covered 
by a basic Health and Accident policy. Full-time students residing off-campus 
may purchase this insurance for $50 per year. In addition, any student covered 
by the basic policy may purchase the Major Medical Plan for $50 a year. 
International students, students participating in any intercollegiate sport, and 
students participating in intramural football or basketball are required to have 
this major medical coverage or its equivalent. (Insurance rates are for 1984-85. 
They will change for 1985-86.) 

In addition to tuition and room and board charges, students may be 
required to subscribe to the following: 

1 . DAMAGE DEPOSIT A $100 damage deposit is required of all boarding 
students. The damage deposit is refundable at the end of the academic year 
after any charge for damages is deducted. Room keys and other college 
property must be returned and the required checkout procedure completed 
prior to issuance of damage deposit refunds. This deposit is payable at fall 
registration. Students who begin in the spring term must also pay the $100 
damage deposit. 



40 



2. GRADUATING SENIOR: Graduation fee of $50. 

3. LABORATORY FEE: A $20 fee is assessed for each laboratory course 
taken. 

Full-time, on-campus student: 

Fall, 1985 Spring, 1986 

Tuition $2,715 Tuition $2,715

These schedules do not include the extra cost of single rooms, books 
(approximately $2 50 per year), or travel and personal expense. All fees are 
subject to change. 

Part-Time Fees 

Students enrolled part-time in day classes during the fall or spring 
semesters will be charged $575 per three semester hour course. This rate 
is applicable to those students taking 1 1 semester hours or less. Students taking 
12 to 16 hours are classified full-time. 

Evening and Summer Courses 

Fee schedules for the evening and summer programs are available from 
the Division of Continuing Education. 



Withdrawal, Drop/Add 



Students who find it necessary to drop courses or add courses must 
secure a drop/add form in the Registrar's Office. The form is the only means 
by which students may change their enrollment. A drop/add form must be 
completed in the Registrar's Office during the drop/add week. After the 
drop/add period, the professor must approve the change in schedule. The 
professor may issue one of the following grades: withdraw passing (W), 
withdraw failing (WF), or may refuse to approve a drop. In order to receive 
a refund, the student must officially drop the class by the end of the twentieth 
class day. No refund will be processed until classes have ceased for the 
semester in progress. 

Students should note that any change of academic schedule must be 
cleared by the Registrar's Office. The date the change is received in the 
Registrar's Office will be the official date for the change. 

If a student misses six consecutive classes in any course, the instructor 
will notify the Registrar's Office and it will be assumed that the student has 
unofficially withdrawn from the course. This does not eliminate the 
responsibility stated above concerning the official withdrawal policy. The 

41 



student may receive the grade of withdrawal passing, withdrawal failing, or 
failure due to excessive absences. This policy has direct implications for 
students receiving benefits from the Veterans Administration and other federal 
agencies as these agencies must be notified when a student misses six 
consecutive classes. This will result in an automatic decrease in payments to 
the student. Reinstatement in a course is at the discretion of the instructor. 
If a student must withdraw from the University an official withdrawal 
form must be obtained from the Registrar. The Dean of the Faculty and the 
Director of Financial Aid must sign the withdrawal form. The date the 
completed withdrawal form is submitted to the Registrar will be the official 
date for withdrawal. 

Refunds 

The establishment of a refund policy is based on the University's 
commitment to a fair and equitable refund of tuition and other charges 
assessed. While the University advances this policy, it should not be interpreted 
as a policy of convenience for students to take lightly their responsibility and 
their commitment to the University. The University has demonstrated a 
commitment by admitting and providing the necessary programs for all 
students and expects students to reciprocate that commitment. 

Since insurance coverage begins on the payment date and the fee is 
not retained by the University, it will not be refunded after registration day. 
A $100 fee will be retained by Oglethorpe as a processing fee when a student 
withdraws, all other fees except the advance deposit (i.e., tuition, room and 
board) are subject to the refund schedule. 

The date which will be used for calculation of a refund for withdrawal 
or drop/add will be the date on which the Registrar receives the official form 
signed by all required personnel. All students must followthe procedures for 
withdrawal and drop/add in order to receive a refund. Students are reminded 
that all changes in their academic program must be cleared through the 
Registrar, and arrangement with a professor will not be recognized as an official 
change of schedule. 

All tuition refund requests will be processed at the conclusion of the 
fourth week of classes. Payment will take a minimum of two weeks, but will 
be no longer than 40 days. 

In the following schedules, "class day'' means any day during which the 
University conducts classes. 

Refund Schedule for 
Withdrawals from the University 

Before or on 1st class day 100%* 

By the end of the 7th class day 75%* 

By the end of the 14th class day 50%* 

By the end of the 20th class day 25%* 

(*Less a $100 fee retained by Oglethorpe as a processing fee.) 



42 



Refund Schedule for Changes in Schedule 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 7th class day 100% 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 10th class day 75% 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 16th class day 50% 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 20th class day 2 5% 

In order to administer the refund policy equitably there will be no 
exceptions. 

Damage deposit refunds will be processed once each semester for 
students and will be mailed on an announced day from the Business Office. 
No refund will be processed until classes have ceased for the semester in 
progress.

Leadership Development 



Oglethorpe University seeks to prepare its students for roles of leader- 
ship in society. At Oglethorpe, specific educational experiences are planned 
to help the student acquire the skills of leadership. 

Education for leadership must be based on the essential academic 
competencies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Though widely neg- 
lected today at all levels of education, these are the prerequisites for effec- 
tive leadership. They are the marks of an educated person. Oglethorpe insists 
that its students achieve advanced proficiency in these skills. In addition, stu- 
dents are offered specific preparation in the arts of leadership. Such arts 
include an appreciation of constructive values, the setting of goals, public 
speaking, human relations, and organizational skills. 

This philosophy presents an excellent opportunity for the able young 
person who is striving for a significant life, including leadership in the improve- 
ment of our community and our society. 

Orientation and the Freshman Seminar 

Oglethorpe University wishes to provide each student with the oppor- 
tunity to make a successful adjustment to college life. Because we take pride 
in our tradition of close personal relationships, we have organized an orien- 
tation program to provide these relationships, as well as much needed infor- 
mation about the University. 

The program has been developed to assist students through small group 
experiences. Information is disseminated which acquaints the student with 
the academic program and the extracurricular life of the campus community. 
Thorough understanding of the advising system, the registration process, 
library use, class offerings, and study demands is sought. Alternatives for self 
expression outside the classroom are also presented to the new student. 

To supplement the student's experience, a Freshman Seminar is held 
during the first semester. Topics discussed during these sessions will meet 
the needs of the developing student and will help the student assimilate his 
college experiences. Freshman students, having completed the orientation 
program and Freshman Seminar, will be better prepared to understand and 
appreciate their educational development. 



Student Responsibility 



Oglethorpe University is a community within the wider community. As 
such, students are expected to maintain high standards of conduct. They 
should respect the privacy and feelings of others and the property of both 
students and the University. Students are expected to display behavior which 
is not disruptive of campus life or of the surrounding community. Students 
represent the University on and off campus. Students whose actions show 
that they have not accepted this responsibility will be subject to disciplinary 
action as set forth in The "O" Book. 



45 



The Oglethorpe Student Association 

The Oglethorpe Student Association is the guiding body for student 
community life at Oglethorpe University. The OS. A. consists of two bodies, 
an executive council, composed of the president, vice president, 
parliamentarian, secretary, treasurer and the presidents of the four classes, 
and the senate, chaired by the vice president and composed of four senators 
from each class. Both bodies meet regularly. Notices are posted for senate 
meetings, which are open to the public. Additional information can be obtained 
from the O.S.A. Office or the Student Center Office located on the upper level 
of the Emerson Student Center. The address is Oglethorpe Student 
Association. 3000 Woodrow Way N.E.. Atlanta. Georgia 30319. 

Student Activities 



Valuable educational experiences may be gained through active partici- 
pation in approved campus activities and organizations. All students are 
encouraged to participate in one or more organizations 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. The value of a student's participation 
is a major consideration in determining scholarships.

Fraternities and Sororities 



Four fraternities and two sororities contribute to the Greek system at 
Oglethorpe. 

The four fraternities are Chi Phi, Delta Sigma Phi, Kappa Alpha and Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon. The national sororities are Chi Omega and Delta Zeta. 

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 established by the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, 
and the Dean of Community Life. 



Athletic Policy 



At Oglethorpe University the students who participate in intercollegiate 
competition are considered to be students first and athletes second. All 
students engaged in athletics must satisfy the same academic requirements 
as other students. There are no scholarships which are based solely or primarily 
on the athletic ability of the student. However, Oglethorpe provides a program 
of Leadership Scholarships and Oglethorpe Scholars Awards which are 
described in another section of this bulletin. Many students who are interested 
in sports and are superior academically can qualify for these forms of 
assistance. 



Athletics 



Oglethorpe University offers intercollegiate competition in basketball, 
cross country, soccer, tennis and track for men; and in cross country, tennis, 
track and volleyball for women. 

In addition to the intercollegiate competition, a well-rounded program 
of intramural sports is offered and has strong participation by the student 
body. Men and women participate in flag football, tennis, volleyball, basketball, 
and softball. 




47 



Cooperative Education/Internships 

Beginning in their sophomore year, students can further refine their 
career plans through cooperative education and internship work experiences. 
These programs provide practical experience which complements the 
academic program. Besides giving students an opportunity to gain marketable 
work experience, they are also given the opportunity to test the reality of their 
career decisions. 

Cooperative education and internship experiences are available to 
students in all academic programs. Opportunities can be arranged in business, 
government, education, social services, and health care institutions. 

Counseling 

The Counseling Service at Oglethorpe provides confidential, professional 
assistance to students experiencing psychological or social problems. Though 
academic advising is the responsibility of individually assigned faculty mentors, 
students encountering unusual academic difficulties may wish to consult a 
counselor regarding possible contributing factors. Assistance in developing 
effective study skills is also available both in special workshops and, if needed. 
in individual conferences. Psychological tests are sometimes utilized in 
conjunction with the counseling process when circumstances indicate that 
these would be helpful. 

Placement and Career Development Center 

Students who need guidance in selecting a career, or assistance in ob- 
taining appropriate job placement, can receive help from the Placement Center. 
An extensive career information library is maintained containing information 
on a wide variety of career opportunities. Vocational interest inventories are 
also available and are frequently used as a part of an individualized process 
of career advising. 

A four-year program of career development is available to interested 
students. The program provides guidance on career decisions and specific 
job preparation. Special attention is given to the improvement of skills in 
communication and interviewing, constructing resumes, and job search 
strategies. 

Oglethorpe University maintains contact with numerous local and 
national businesses, industries and social service agencies for the purpose 
of arranging employment and experiential learning opportunities for the 
students and graduates. 

Information on full-time and part-time and summer employment 
opportunities is updated and made available to all students and alumni. In 
addition, a central placement file is maintained on all students and alumni 
who complete the necessary forms and provide references of appraisal. Upon 
request this placement file will be sent to any prospective employer or graduate 
school indicated.

Opportunities in Atlanta 



The Oglethorpe campus is located eight miles north of downtown 
Atlanta. This proximity to the Souths greatest city offers Oglethorpe students 
many cultural advantages. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs during 
the fall and winter months in the Memorial Arts Center. The Atlanta Ballet 
Company schedules performances from November through March. Both The 
Theatre of the Stars and the Alliance Theatre Company present productions 
of contemporary and classical plays. These are only illustrative of the wide 
range of cultural opportunities offered by Atlanta. Student discounts are 
available for many performances. 




49 



Housing 



The residence halls are available to all full-time day students. There are 
five men's residence halls and two women's halls. Each complex has a Resident 
Director and a staff of student Resident Assistants. 

All students living in the residence halls are required to participate in 
the University meal plan. Meals are served in the Emerson Student Center. 
Nineteen meals are served each week. No breakfast is served on Saturday 
or Sunday. Instead a brunch is served from mid-morning until early afternoon. 
The evening meal is also served on these days. Meal tickets are issued at 
registration. 

Health Service 

All resident students subscribe to a Basic Student Accident and Sickness 
Insurance Plan provided by the University. Full-time students living off campus 
may purchase this insurance. In addition, any student covered under the basic 
policy may purchase an optional Major Medical Plan for an additional charge. 

The University maintains a small health center staffed by a registered 
nurse. The health center operates on a regular schedule and provides basic 
first aid service and limited medical assistance for students. 

A physician visits the health center twice a week to make general diag- 
nosis 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 relation- 
ships at the University or in the community, the student will be requested 
to withdraw. Readmission to the University will be contingent upon acceptable 
verification that the student is ready to return. The final decision will rest with 
the University. 

O Book 

The "O" Book is the student handbook of Oglethorpe University. It 
contains thorough information on the history, customs, traditional events, and 
services of the University, as well as all University regulations. This publication 
provides all the necessary information about the University which will aid each 
student in adjusting to college life.

Academic Regulations 
and Policies 




Registration 



New students select courses in consultation with a faculty adviser to 
whom they are assigned on their initial registration day. Schedule planning 
and course selection for following semesters are accomplished during pre- 
registration week. Students should make appointments to consult with their 
academic advisers during preregistration. Summer schedules are planned 
during preregistration week in the spring semester. 

The official registration period precedes the first day of classes. Every 
student must go through the various stations of the registration process during 
this period. Those who have preregistered will be able to pick up a copy of 
their course schedule at the first station of registration and thereby bypass 
the station at which proposed course schedules are computer processed by 
Registrar's Office personnel. All other stations must be completed by pre- 
registered students. 



Academic Advising 



Each student consults with a member of the faculty in preparing course 
schedules, discussing post-graduation plans, and inquiring about any other 
academic matter. A student's adviser or "mentor'' is assigned at the time of 
the student's initial enrollment. The faculty adviser is each student's primary 
point of contact with the University. 

To change advisers a student must complete the following procedural 
steps: 

1 ) Ask the proposed "new" faculty adviser for permission to be added 
to the faculty member's advisee list. 

2) Ask the current adviser to send his student file to the faculty member 
who has agreed to be the student's new adviser. ■ 

3) Ascertain that the new adviser has received the file and has sent an 
Adviser Change notice to the Registrar's Office. 

This is the only method for changing academic advisers. 



Attendance 



Regular attendance at class sessions, laboratories, examinations, and 
official University convocations is an obligation which all students are expected 
to fulfill. 

Faculty members set specific attendance policies in their course syllabi. 



Grading 



Faculty members report letter grades for students at the end of each 
semester. These grades become part of the student's official record. Once 
entered, a grade may not be changed except by means of an officially executed 
Change of Grade form. 

A student's cumulative grade-point average (GPA) is calculated by di- 
viding the number of semester hours of work the student has attempted into 
the total number of quality points earned.

57 



Normal Academic Load 



A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of no less than four 
courses each semester, but generally five courses are taken, giving the student 
a total of 12 to 16 semester hours each term. Regular students in the day 
classes are expected to carry a normal load and to pay for a full schedule 
of courses. 

Withdrawal from the University 

Students who wish to withdraw from the University during a semester 
are asked to complete the appropriate form, which is available at the Registrar's 
Office. The grade "W" or "WF" will be assigned for courses in progress, 
depending upon the student's academic progress in those courses. 



Withdrawal from a Course 



The grade "W" or "WF" is assigned to a student who withdraws from 
a course (turns in a properly executed withdrawal form at the Registrar's Office) 
from the conclusion of drop and add period through midterm or the middle 
of a mini or summer session. After that time the grade "W" is assigned only 
in the case of a prolonged illness (physician's letter must be submitted directly 
to the Registrar's Office) or withdrawal from the University. 

In the case of an emergency departure from the campus as a result of 
which withdrawal forms have not been executed, the Registrar's Office verifies 
that the student has left campus as a result of an emergency and notifies 
instructors. Instructors may elect to assign a "W" in such a case even if it occurs 
after midterm or midsession. 

A student who withdraws from the University after midterm or the middle 
of a mini or summer session is assigned the grade "W" or "WF" in courses 
depending upon the student's academic progress in those courses. 



Repetition of Courses 



Courses completed originally during the fall semester of 1983 or 
subsequently may be repeated only if an unsatisfactory grade (D, F FA. or 
WF) was received in the course. Courses completed prior to the fall semester 
1983 may be repeated regardless of the grade received originally. 

For a repeated course, the higher of the two grades received in the course 
is calculated into the student's cumulative grade-point average. However, for 
courses completed originally in the fall semester of 1984 and subsequently, 
all grades received in the course are calculated into the student's cumulative 
grade-point average. 



58 



Policy on Academic Fraud 



Definitions 

Cheating on Examinations 

1) The unauthorized use of notes, texts, or other such materials during 
an examination, 

2) Copying another person's work or participation in such an effort, 

3) An attempt or participation in an attempt to fulfill the requirements 
of a course with work other than one's original work for that course. 
Students have the responsibility of avoiding participation in cheating 
incidents by doing their own work, taking precautions against others 
copying their work, and in general neither giving nor receiving aid. 

Plagiarism 

Misrepresenting someone else's words, ideas, data, or original research as 
one's own. In general failing to footnote or otherwise acknowledge the 
source of such work. One has the responsibility of avoiding plagiarism by 
taking adequate notes on reference materials used in the preparation of 
reports, papers, and other coursework. The instructor decides if there is 
substantial and convincing evidence that an incident of willful and flagrant 
plagiarism has occurred. 

Penalties for Academic Fraud 

If the instructor believes that there is substantial and convincing evidence 
that an incident of academic fraud has occurred, the student is assigned 
an "F" in the relevant course and the instructor delivers written notification 
to the Dean of the Faculty of such action. The Dean of the Faculty informs 
the student by letter that the student is suspended from the University for 
the next full semester. Students may not register for summer session courses 
at Oglethorpe while suspended. Coursework taken at another college during 
the period of suspension is not acceptable as transfer credit at Oglethorpe. 
A student suspended for academic fraud may not take part in any University 
activities nor frequent the campus. 

Upon notification of suspension the student may request a review of the 
evidence of academic fraud by an ad hoc Evidence Review Committee 
composed of: 

1) Dean of the Faculty. 

2) The student's academic adviser. 

3) Two faculty members appointed by the Dean of the Faculty. 

4) Three students selected by the president of the Olgethorpe Student 
Association. (In the absence of the president, the vice-president shall 
select the students.) 

The Evidence Review Committee's task is to decide whether the evidence 
of academic fraud is convincing enough to constitute proof beyond a 
reasonable doubt of a violation. 

The second academic fraud offense will result in the student's expulsion. 
Again, the student may ask an ad hoc Evidence Review Committee to decide 
whether the evidence presented constitutes proof beyond a reasonable 
doubt of a violation. 



59 



Access to Students Records 



To comply with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974. com- 
monly called the Buckley Amendment, Oglethorpe University informs students 
of their rights under this act in the student handbook. The "O" Book. Three 
basic rights are covered by this act: (1) The student's right to have access to 
personal records. (2) the right of a hearing to challenge the content of a record, 
and (3) the right to withhold or give consent for the release of identifying data. 
Additional information may be obtained from The "O" Book and from the Dean 
of the Faculty.

Semester System 



Two semesters constitute the regular academic year. TWo day sessions, 
an evening session and a mini-session are offered in the summer. 

Division of Continuing Education 

The University's Division of Continuing Education offers a variety of edu- 
cational opportunities to adults in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Included 
are credit courses in the liberal arts and business, non-credit courses, and 
educational experiences designed to meet the specific needs of employers, 
of organizations, and members of vocational groups. 

Continuing Education Degree Program 

An evening-weekend credit program serves two groups: those who wish 
to take a limited number of courses for special purposes and those who desire 
to earn baccalaureate degrees. Degree programs are offered in Accounting, 
Business Administration, Economics, and the Individually Planned Major. 
Classes meet two nights a week (Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and 
Thursday) and on Saturday mornings. The academic year is divided into three 
full terms — fall, spring and summer — and an abbreviated term in May. To 
qualify for the special tuition rates offered continuing education students, a 
student must take all courses in the evening or on Saturdays. 

Non-Credit Course Program 

The Division of Continuing Education serves as the University's 
community service arm, providing non-credit courses for adults. Carefully 
planned courses meet varying educational needs of adults living in the 
University's area. Classes meet on weekday evenings in fall, winter and spring 
terms. 

Human Resource Development 

Training needs of business, industry, government, and vocational groups 
in the north Atlanta area are met through individually designed seminars, 
workshops, and conferences. Emphasis is placed on training for managers, 
with a Certificate in Management awarded to individuals who complete the 
prescribed course of study.

Courses of Study 



In the following section courses are listed numerically by discipline within 
their respective divisions. Most courses are designated by a four-digit number. 
The first digit indicates the level of the course. 1 = freshman level, 2 = 
sophomore level, 3 = junior level, 4 = senior level, and 6 = graduate level. 
Higher level courses in a discipline are typically designed to build upon the 
content of lower level courses in that discipline and other specified prerequisite 
courses. 

In some cases, the letter C, L, or P replaces the first digit in the course 
number. C indicates that the course fulfills a core requirement. L means 
laboratory: P means that the course is a preliminary course to the required 
core course in that discipline. 

The number of hours refers to the semester hours of college credit per 
semester which are earned by the successful completion of the course. 



65 



Major Programs 



Completion of a major program is required for all baccalaureate degrees. 
The student's academic adviser assists with the student's selection of a major. 
The student declares the major selected on the course registratrion form 
completed each semester. Students must declare a major during the second 
semester of the sophomore year. 

A major is an orderly sequence of courses in I) a particular discipline. 
2) a combination of two disciplines, or 3) a defined interdisciplinary field. A 
major includes a minimum of 36 and a maximum of 62 semester hours of 
required coursework. Each major must allow for the student's selection of 
courses which are not in the discipline(s) of the major and not required 
components of the core curriculum. Each major includes a substantial 
component of advanced courses which have specified prerequisites. A major 
may require for successful completion a cummulative grade point average 
in the major field which is higher than the 2.0 cummulative grade point average 
required for graduation. Alternatively, the requirements for the major may 
state that only courses in which a "C" or higher grade is received may be 
offered in satisfaction of the major's requirements. The student is responsible 
for ensuring the fulfillment of the requirements of the major selected. Specific 
requirements for each of the majors listed below are indicated in the section 
of the Bulletin in which the course offerings of the discipline are described 
or in the sections which state the requirements of individually planned and 
interdisciplinary majors.

Juniors who have achieved a 3.3 or higher cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) and a 3.5 or higher GPA in courses completed in a particular discipline 
may apply to undertake an honours project in that discipline during their senior 
year. 

Junior Year 

At the end of the first semester of the student's junior year, the student 
asks a professor to act as the Tutor for an honours project. If the faculty 
member agrees to do so, the Tutor and student decide on a list of preparatory 
readings. The student becomes familiar with the works on the list during the 
second semester of the junior year prior to registering for the initial semester 
of honours work. 

Senior Year 

In order to register for honours work during the first semester of the 
senior year, the student reports to the Tutor on work done on the reading 
list and on topic definition. If the Tutor is satisfied that the student is prepared 
to begin a research program, the Tutor initials the course entitled, (Discipline's 
Name) — Independent Study I, 2 semester hours. 

Early in the semester, and no later than mid-semester, the honours 
student presents a research prospectus to the Tutor, which, when approved 
by the Tutor, is presented to the division chairperson for review. The division 
chairperson reviews the prospectus and, if it is approved, recommends two 
readers for the project — one or more of whom may be outside the division. 
The Tutor seeks the agreement of the recommended readers to serve in that 
capacity and- reports back to the division chairperson. 

At the end of the semester the Tutor grades the student's work for the 
semester. The student should have completed the research specified in the 
prospectus and have an outline of the paper to be written. The student may 
take a second semester of honours work only if an "A" is received for the 
initial semester's work. Those who receive a "B" or lower grade will be asked 
to withdraw from the honours program. 

A continuing honours student registers for (Discipline's Name) — 
Independent Study II, 1 semester hour, for the second semester of the senior 
year. A first draft of the paper should be ready for review by the Tutor prior 
to mid-semester. After revisions and corrections, the final version is read by 
the Tutor and the two faculty members who have agreed to act as readers. 
The Tutor and readers consult on the grade for the paper. If they are unable 
to reach agreement, the division chairperson will be asked to participate in 
the consultations. Only an "A" paper constitutes successful completion of the 
honours program. The credit hours earned in the honours program may be 
counted as academic credit in the discipline in which the work was done. 

Students who successfully complete the program have inscribed on their 
diplomas "Honours in (Discipline's Name). The honours program should not be 
confused with overall academic honors, which are announced at the 
commencement ceremony and are based only on the student's cumulative 
grade point average (see Degrees with Academic Honors, above). Students 
interested in an honours project should consult with a faculty member in the 
field in which they seek to do the project.

Dual Degree Program in Art 



Students seeking a broadly based educational experience involving the 
types of programs generally found at a college of arts and sciences as well 
as the specialized training offered by a professional college may consider the 
dual degree program in art. Oglethorpe University and The Atlanta College 
of Art (ACA) offer a joint program for students interested in a career in the 
visual arts. In this program, the student enrolls at Oglethorpe for two years, 
completes 60 semester hours of work, including the core requirements, and 
then enrolls at The Atlanta College of Art for approximately three years. 

The student is required to complete three credit hours in Art 
Appreciation and at least six credit hours in studio electives at Oglethorpe. 
In addition, the student completes six credit hours in second semester 
Foundation Design at The Atlanta College of Art. preferably during the fourth 
semester at Oglethorpe. (This requirement or an equal substitute must be met 
before the student is enrolled for introductory studio classes at ACA.) 

Upon successful completion of all of the core requirements plus the 
aforementioned art electives. the student enrolls at The Atlanta College of 
Art and completes 78 credit hours in 200. 300. and 400 level studio courses 
and 12 credit hours in art history electives. 

Upon completion of the joint program, the student receives the degree 
of Bachelor of Arts from Oglethorpe and the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts 
from The Atlanta College of Art. Students participating in the dual degree 
program must meet the entrance requirements of both institutions. Dual 
degree students are advised at Oglethorpe by a faculty member in the field 
of visual arts. 

Dual Degree Program in Engineering 

Oglethorpe is associated with the Georgia Institute of Technology and 
Auburn University in combined programs of liberal arts and engineering The 
programs require the student to complete three years at Oglethorpe University 
and the final two years at one of the engineering schools. The three years 
at Oglethorpe include general education courses and prescribed courses in 
mathematics and the physical sciences. The two years of technical education 
require the completion of courses in one of the branches of engineering. 

In this combined plan, the two degrees which are awarded upon the 
successful completion of the program are the degree of Bachelor of Arts by 
Oglethorpe University and the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering 
by the engineering school. Because the required pre-engineering curricula 
of the two schools are slightly different, the student is advised to consult 
frequently with the faculty member serving as dual degree engineering 
program adviser. 



Individually Planned Major 



An individually planned major combines coursework in two disciplines. 
The following requirements must be fulfilled: completion of core requirements; 
completion of 120 semester hours, completion of a coherent sequence of 



68 



courses including at least 18 semester hours in one discipline and 12 semester 
hours in another discipline (in the first category no more than two courses 
may be core requirements, and in the second category only one may be a 
core requirement); and completion of at least 36 semester hours in courses 
beyond the introductory level. The degree Bachelor of Arts is awarded. 

An academic adviser guides the student who selects this major in the 
planning of a program which meets all requirements of the major. Some 
possible combinations of disciplines are: history and English; business 
administration and political studies; and economics and philosophy. 



Premedical Program 



A student who plans to attend a professional school of medicine, 
dentistry, optometry, pharmacy or veterinary medicine should plan a program 
of studies at Oglethorpe in consultation with a faculty member who is a 
designated premedical adviser. It is desirable for the premedical student to 
begin the process of undergraduate program planning with a premedical 
adviser. It is essential that contact be established by the second semester 
of the student's freshman year. 

Professional schools of health science require for admission successful 
completion of a specified sequence of courses in the natural sciences as well 
as the submission of acceptable scores on appropriate standardized tests. 
However, premedical students have a wide latitude of choice with regard to 
the major selected. Students should familiarize themselves with the particular 
admission requirements of the type of professional school they plan to enter 
prior to deciding on the course of study to be pursued at Oglethorpe. 

The professional option is available to highly qualified students seeking 
admission to appropriately accredited colleges of medicine dentistry and vet- 
erinary medicine. This option allows students to enter their respective 
professional schools at the end of their junior year. Credit is awarded at 
Oglethorpe for the successful completion of the first year of professional 
school (see Degrees, above). 



Allied Health Studies 



Students who plan to attend professional schools of nursing, physical 
therapy or other allied health fields should plan their programs at Oglethorpe 
with the assistance of the faculty member serving as the Allied Health Adviser. 
The name of this adviser can be obtained at the Registrar's office. 

In allied health fields, successful completion of the program in an 
accredited professional school and a minimum of 60 semester hours credit 
earned at Oglethorpe are required to earn the Bachelor of Arts degree with 
an individually planned major in two relevant disciplines. 



Prelegal Program 



Students planning to enter law school after graduation from Oglethorpe 
should realize that neither the American Bar Association nor leading law 
schools endorse a particular prelaw major. The student is advised, however. 



69 



to take courses that enhance the basic skills of a liberally educated person: 
reading with comprehension, writing, speaking, and reasoning. The student 
is encouraged to become more familiar with political, economic, and social 
institutions as they have developed historially and as they function in 
contemporary society. Students are referred to the Prelaw Handbook, which is 
available in the University bookstore, for a more complete discussion of the 
desirable aspects of a prelaw curriculum. 

Students interested in pursuing a legal career should ask the Registrar 
for the names of faculty members serving as prelaw advisers. 

Preseminary 

Preseminary students should plan a curriculum with emphasis on phi- 
losophy, religion, English, and foreign language courses. A faculty adviser will 
aid in the selection of a particular field of study. For further guidance, the 
chairman of the humanities division makes available a list of courses recom- 
mended by the American Association of Theological Schools, luniors and 
seniors are encouraged to take an internship related to their course work. 

Internships and Cooperative Education 

Oglethorpe University offers two on-the-job learning programs: Co- 
operative Education and Internships. These programs provide students with 
the opportunity to have an employment experience designed to promote their 
professional and personal growth. It also allows students to explore particular 
career options. 

Opportunities are available in all majors for students who (1) demonstrate 
a clear understanding of the goals they wish to accomplish in the experience 
and (2) possess the necessary academic and personal background to 
accomplish these goals. 

Cooperative Education 

Cooperative Education is a non-credit program in which students 
alternate semesters of work and study until graduation. Students begin the 
co-op experience in their junior year. Opportunites are available with major 
employers such as Delta Air Lines, IBM Corporation and the Centers for 
Disease Control. 

Internships 

Students with a 2.80 or higher cummulative grade point average may 
qualify to begin an internship experience in the sophomore year. Every 
internship requires a statement of academic objectives and requirements 
developed in consultation with the student's faculty adviser and/or faculty 
internship supervisor. Upon successful completion of the internship, the 
student is awarded academic credit in recognition of the learning value of 
the experience. 

Students who are interested in a co-operative education or internship 
experience should first consult with their faculty adviser and then visit the 
Career Development and Placement Center in Lupton Hall to obtain 
information and procedural forms.

Mathematics and Computer Science 

Since its inception as an academic discipline, computer science has been 
closely associated with mathematics. Many of the field's pioneers are mathe- 
maticians by training. Indeed, modern computer science would not be possi- 
ble without the existence of a number of mathematical developments once 
thought to be entirely theoretical in nature. 

The major in Mathematics and Computer Science is designed to acquaint 
students with the various linkages between computer science and mathematics 
and to enable students to understand more thoroughly their primary discipline. 

74 



whether it is mathematics or computer science. Rigorous training in 
mathematical thinking will provide the student with essential analytical tools 
and mental discipline, while the problem-solving skills that will be sharpened 
in the process of developing algorithms for computer applications will prove 
to be beneficial to students of mathematics. Students will become familiar 
with ways in which modern computational tools have made possible work 
in mathematics that would otherwise be prohibitively laborious. Understand- 
ing of the many mathematical structures that are essential to effective develop- 
ment and utilization of processes in computer science will be enhanced. The 
degree awarded is the Bachelor of Science.

U N IIVERSITY 



Division I 
The Humanities 




English 



In literature courses, students examine written works to determine their 
meaning, to reach judgments about their value, to explore their relation to 
life, and to derive pleasure. To these ends, students make written and oral 
analyses, supporting their conclusions with close examination of specific 
passages from the works of literature being studied. In both literature and 
writing courses, students learn to compose their generalizations and 
supporting details into a coherent structure of thought and language. 

An English major at Oglethorpe is excellent preparation for law school 
or any other professional training that requires students to interpret written 
material, and support their assertions with specific evidence. Given the 
expressed need in the business community for people who can communicate 
well orally and on paper, the combination of an English major and courses 
in business administration or an accounting minor may be very attractive to 
prospective employers. The course Advanced Writing focuses on the kinds 
of speaking and writing abilities graduates will need to get and keep jobs in 
personnel, sales, and management. Our graduates also work in public relations 
and editing, where they use their skill with words - a major emphasis of every 
English course. They go into teaching, and sometimes work for publishers, 
TV. stations, film-making companies, or computer firms. They write press 
releases, training manuals, in-house newspapers, and news copy. 

To help students bridge the gap between academic life and work 
experience, Oglethorpe places English majors in internships with area 
newspapers, printing companies, public relations firms, cultural associations, 
and radio and TV. stations. Such experiences enhance students' chances of 
finding the jobs they want after graduation.

Far Eastern Studies Seminar/Tour 

The Oglethorpe University Far Eastern Seminar/Tour offers an exceptional 
opportunity for students to undertake a program of study in several Oriental 
cities. During the summer, students travel in the milieu of a great culture and 
study the origin, nature, and achievements of that culture. 

This program is primarily related to the undergraduate humanities 
program. The purpose of the session is to broaden the student's perspective 
by enhancing understanding and appreciation of other cultures. 

COURSE OF STUDY: The study program is organized around two related 
motifs. (1) Prior to the trip, a four-week seminar will be devoted to the 
understanding of Eastern cultures through the combined perspectives of 
geography and history, art and religion, economics and political science. 
Students will attend lectures by the instructor who will provide leadership 
for the independent study group of the student's major interest. (2) There will 
be tours to the major cultural monuments of Eastern cities. During the tour, 
students will engage in an independent study project of their choosing. 

APPLICATION: Application forms and further information may be ob- 
tained from the Director of the Far Eastern Tour. Students accepted in the 
program register at Oglethorpe University for the following courses:

The Oglethorpe University European Studies Seminar/Tour offers an ex- 
ceptional opportunity for students to undertake a program of study in several 
European cities. Typically these cities include London. Cologne. Munich. Venice. 
Florence. Rome. Lucerne, and Paris. For three weeks students travel in the milieu 
of the great cultures of Europe and study the origin, nature, and achievements 
of those cultures. 

The primary emphasis of this course is first-hand experience through 
tours of museums, palaces, factories, cathedrals, and gardens, as well as visits 
to famous theatres for performances, to monuments, prison-camp sites, and 
other points of historical interest. Activities of the trip are designed to develop 
a knowledge and appreciation of the historical and cultural heritage of the 
Western world in art. literature, architecture and other areas. 

This travel experience is preceded by a series of orientation sessions 
during which the students select appropriate reading materials; prepare for 
new cultural experiences in languages, foods, money etc.. and begin selection 
of independent study projects. Upon return to the Oglethorpe campus, stu- 
dents prepare an independent study project growing out of their experiences 
in Europe. All activities are supervised by the Director of the European 
Summer Session. 

ELIGIBILITY: This session is open to juniors, seniors, and graduate 
students in good standing.

History and 
Political Studies 




History 

The study of history introduces students to important events of the past 
and the people who played significant roles in them. Embracing the principal 
fields of liberal education, the study of history enlarges one's understanding 
of political organizations, economic arrangements, social institutions, religious 
experiences and the various forms of intellectual expression. An appreciation 
for the Western heritage is one of its main objectives. 

Course offerings at Oglethorpe are about equally divided between 
European and American history. In each of these areas, two-semester surveys 
are studied at the freshman and sophomore levels respectively. Western 
Civilization I and II, the freshman level survey courses, are required for 
graduation. In the second sequence. American History I and II. either one 
is an optional core requirement bracketed with courses in political studies. 
Above the sophomore level, period and topical courses are roughly divided 
between the European and American branches of the discipline. 

The history faculty at Oglethorpe University seeks to make its students 
aware of the constantly changing interpretations of the past and acquaint them 
with the increasing uses of the discipline in such fields as law. journalism, public 
relations, art, theology, diplomacy and public service. Particular stress is placed 
on a mastery of the techniques of research which enhance one's usefulness 
in many fields of professional life. Archival careers and postgraduate studies 
in history are options with which Oglethorpe students become familiar. 

Major 

Students majoring in history are required to take a minimum of ten of 
the courses listed below. Of these ten, at least two European history and two 
American history courses are required. Normally each student is required to 
take five courses in political studies: or other related field. Students who plan 
to attend graduate school should take at least two courses in a foreign 
language.

Political Studies 

Political studies is the name given to the discipline at Oglethorpe that 
seeks to understand what political institutions do and why, as well as what 
they ought to be doing and do not. At other colleges, these questions are 
pursued under such rubrics as "politics,'' and "government.'' and "political 
science." At Oglethorpe, we call the discipline political studies in the belief 
that it is an open question whether we are "governed" or subjected to 
"politics," and that the most important questions, including normative ones, 
often cannot be answered by methods borrowed from the natural sciences. 

98 



Thus the political studies faculty avoid a heavy emphasis on quantitative 
methods, though students are certainly encouraged to learn them if they so 
desire. Rather, the focus is on the interpretation of events, both past and 
current, from a perspective informed by the study of political thought and 
institutions. In addition, students in this discipline develop their capacity to 
compare analagous things and to generalize. The ability to read difficult texts 
carefully and thoughtfully is especially important in political theory courses. 
Finally, politics is obviously a contentious subject. Students in political studies 
must develop some tolerance for ambiguity and disagreement, while at the 
same time learning to appreciate the difference between informed and 
uninformed opinion. Political studies provides good training for life in a world 
that is, for better or worse, shaped profoundly by political institutions. It is 
especially appropriate for those interested in careers in law, business, teaching, 
journalism and government. 

Major 

The requirements for a major in political studies are satisfactory 
completion of at least ten political studies courses (2214, 3214, and 4212 may 
be counted as political studies courses) as well as five elective (non-core) 
courses in related subjects. These "related subjects" include all history or 
economics courses, as well as Ethics or Ancient and Medieval Political Thought 
in philosophy. History of Sociological Thought in sociology or quantitative 
methods courses. 

Minor

Science 




To insure the orderly completion of the program, the student should 
consult with the appropriate faculty members in the division at the time of 
the first registration. It is important that each student's program be fully 
planned so that the student is aware of departmental and divisional require- 
ments and allowable substitutions and alternatives. Each student must com- 
plete the core requirements within the scope of interpretation by responsible 
faculty advisers. In addition, each student must complete those departmental 
and divisional requirements as may apply to the specific degree. 

Three semesters of the course "Science Seminar" (2351. described under

curriculum involves courses which present the fundamentals of the various 
areas. The second half of the curriculum consists of advanced courses which 
cover specialized topics in chemistry. In addition to factual knowledge about 
chemistry the student gains an understanding about the scientific method 
and a systematic approach to research. A large portion of the chemistry 
curriculum includes laboratory courses. These courses teach the techniques 
and skills used in chemical experimentation. 

A student who has completed the Bachelor of Science program in 
chemistry has several career options. These options include technical or 
analytical work in a chemical laboratory and non-research positions in the 
chemical industry such sales or marketing. Another option is to enter a 
graduate or professional school. Graduates interested in doing chemical 
research should pursue the M.S. or Ph.D. degrees. Those interested in 
professions such as medicine or dentistry, would enter the appropriate 
professional school after receiving the Bachelor of Science degree.

Medical Technology 



Medical technologists play an important role in the delivery of modern 
health care. Although hospitals and clinics are their traditional sites of 
employment, medical technologists also find opportunities in many other 
situations, such as commercial testing laboratories, medical and 
pharmaceutical research facilities, and in the sales and demonstration of 
technical instruments. 

Students working toward the degree Bachelor of Science in Medical Tech- 
nology can undertake clinical training at any appropriately accredited institu- 
tion after successful completion of prerequisite academic coursework at 
Oglethorpe University. Prerequisites for clinical programs vary among institu- 
tions; therefore, students should seek additional advisement from the program 
to which they are applying. This will enable the student and the Oglethorpe 
adviser to design the proper sequence of courses and to establish an appro- 
priate time frame for completion of degree requirements. Courses to be com- 
pleted at Oglethorpe will usually include the following: General Biology I and 
II, Microbiology, Human Physiology, General Chemistry I and II, Organic Chem- 
istry 1 and II, Elementary Quantitative Analysis, College Mathematics or 
Calculus I, and appropriate core courses. At least 60 semester hours must 
be completed at Oglethorpe in order to be eligible for an Oglethorpe degree 
in Medical Technology. 



Mathematics 



Mathematics is both an art and a science. Students taking mathematics 
courses at Oglethorpe will encounter both the art of creative thought and 
the science of logical thought. Problem solving capabilities are developed 
in mathematics courses. Since such skills are essential in all fields of endeavor, 
mathematics makes an important contribution to a liberal arts education. 

In particular, mathmatics provides tools fundamental for analysis of 
problems in the physical, biological and social sciences, as well as in such 
areas as economics and business. Also, opportunities are provided to pursue 
the more theoretical aspects of mathematics, which are integral to its further 
development. 

A major in mathematics provides a core of mathematics essential for 
graduate study or immediate employment. Students with mathematical training 
at the undergraduate level are sought by employers in business, government, 
and industry. Career opportunities for mathematics majors exist in areas such 
as computer programming, operations research, statistics, and applied 
mathematics. 

Major 

The object of the course of studies leading to a major in mathematics 
is to provide the student with a broad background and skills in classical 
analysis, together with an introduction to principal topics in contemporary 
formal mathematics and its historical background. The mathematics courses 
required are as follows: Calculus l-IV, Differential Equations, Applied 
Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, and Special Topics in 
Mathematics I and II. In addition, a year of Calculus based physics — Physics

Education 

Education provides courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Elementary 
and Secondary Education, with elementary concentrations in Early Childhood 
(K-4) and Middle Grades Education (4-8) and with Secondary Education (7-12) 
concentrations in the subject areas of English, mathematics, social science, 
and science (biology, physics or chemistry). The teacher preparation curricula 
are fully approved by the Department of Education of the State of Georgia; 
successful program completion is necessary to obtain a teaching certificate. 
Students desiring certification in other states should secure information from 
those states. 

Admission to and Retention 
in Teacher Education Program 

Completion of the Teacher Education Program requires the following 
steps: 

1. Admission to the Teacher Education Program. Apply during the 
course Introduction to Education or, for transfer students, after having 
attended Oglethorpe for one semester. 

2. Completion of a pre-teaching experience — "September Experience." 
Apply for placement after completion of sophomore year. 

3. Completion of Student Teaching. Apply for fall placement by April 
15 or for spring placement by October 15. 

4. Completion of the entire approved program as found on the follow- 
ing pages. Professional courses should be completed according to 
the sequence listed in the approved program; detailed programs may 
be obtained from the education advisers. 

Admission to Oglethorpe University does not admit a student to the 
Teacher Education Program. A person doing satisfactory academic work and 
approved by the Teacher Education Council is admitted. Once admitted, the 
student's progress and record are subject to regular review by the adviser, 
other professors, and the Teacher Education Council. No student on academic 
probation will be scheduled for student teaching until such probation is 
removed. 

Admission to and retention in the Teacher Education Program are based, 
in general, on the following characteristics and achievements: evidence of good 
moral character and personality; evidence of emotional stability and physical 
stamina; a desire to work with children and/or youth; demonstration of pro- 
ficiency in oral and written English; a cumulative average of at least 2.2 with 
no grade less than "C" in any professional education course or in any teaching 
field course required in the approved program; evidence of responsibility in 
student endeavors. 

Completion of the approved program is one of three required steps 
toward teacher certification in Georgia. Students also have to demonstrate 
competency in the subject field by making a satisfactory score on a state ad- 
ministered Teacher Certification Test and must demonstrate the ability to 
perform competently in the classroom setting. Forms needed to apply for 



13 



the Georgia teaching certificate are available in the office of the Director of 
Teacher Education. 

Approved programs leading to teacher certification in Georgia are de- 
scribed in the following sections. All approved programs include the require- 
ments for meeting core requirements at Oglethorpe. They may require more 
general education than is required to meet the core requirements for 
graduation, or they may require certain courses which may be applied to the 
core; careful advisement is necessary on the part of all students preparing 
to teach. Public speaking is a suggested elective for all education majors. 

Early Childhood and 
Middle Grades Education 

Persons desiring to teach in the elementary grades must select either 
Early Childhood (K-4) or Middle grades (4-8) as a concentration. General Edu- 
cation requirements must include Biology I and II. Physical Science, College 
Mathematics, and American History I and II; otherwise regular core 
requirements should be met. 

Students should select Introduction to Education during either the spring 
semester of the freshman year or the fall semester of the sophomore year. 
Program requirements for education majors are available from any education 
faculty member and must be followed closely to avoid scheduling problems 
in the completion of the degree requirements. Programs require work in pro- 
fessional education to culminate in student teaching and in the content of 
the teaching field. Teaching field courses for the early childhood major include 
all content areas; teaching field courses for the middle grades include five 
basic content areas and require two concentrations of approximately 12 
semester hours each. 



Secondary Education 



All secondary education programs require Biological Science, Physical 
Science (or appropriate specialized courses for science majors) and two 
courses in mathematics (to include College Mathematics) in addition to. or 
as part of, the general core. 

All secondary education programs require the following courses in 
professional education: Introduction to Education, Child/Adolescent 
Psychology (sophomore); Secondary Curriculum, Educational Psychology, The 
Exceptional Child (junior or senior). Secondary Methods and Materials (first 
four weeks) and Student Teaching (last eleven weeks) comprise the student 
teaching semester, which is normally the last semester of the senior year.

Psychology 



Psychology uses scientific methods to study a broad range of topics 
related to human behavior and mental processes including motivation, learn- 
ing and memory, human development and personality, psychological dis- 
orders, social interaction, and physiological bases for behavior and thought. 
The study of psychology should help a student to develop skills in three basic 
areas: skills associated with the scientific method including data collection, 
analysis, and interpretation; skills that are useful in the construction and 
evaluation of theories such as analytic and synthetic reasoning; and skills in 
human relations through which the student learns to become a more precise 
and more tolerant observer of human behavior and individual differences. 
Many students with a background in psychology choose careers in psychology- 
related fields such as counseling, psychotherapy, or research, but many others 
choose careers that are not so directly tied to psychology. For example, 
psychology provides a good background for careers in law, education, 
marketing, management, public relations, publishing, and communications.

Students are responsible for ensuring that they fulfill all requirements 
in the major program selected. 

Business Administration 

The business administration curriculum is designed to prepare students 
for careers as business leaders who will earn their livelihood by discerning 
and satisfying people's material wants. Success in this endeavor requires (1) 
the ability to think independently (2) knowledge of business terminology and 
business institutions, both domestic and international, and (3) communica- 
tion skills. The ability to think independently is enhanced through study of 
the courses in the core curriculum and through a requirement that each student 
must complete advanced work in at least one area of business. Courses in 
economics and the functional areas of business administration introduce 
students to business institutions, terminology and methods of inquiry. A 
required course in advanced writing provides practice in thinking and 
communicating. 

In addition to preparing students for business careers, the program in 
business administration is valuable preparation for other careers. Students 
learn administrative skills and methods of inquiry that are applicable to 
administration of governmental and non-profit organizations. Also, since much 
legal practice involves businesses, knowledge of business terminology and 
institutions is an excellent background for the study and practice of law.

Accounting 



The essence of accounting is measurement and communication. The 
objective is to provide information that is useful to decision-makers who must 
choose between economic alternatives. Accordingly, the field focuses on 
information concerning economic resources, claims to those resources, and 
the results of economic activity. The purpose of the major in accounting is 
to acquaint the student with this information and to develop the analytic ability 
necessary to produce it. The student learns to observe economic activity, to 
select from that activity the events which are relevant to particular decisions, 
to measure the economic consequences of those events in quantitative terms. 



129 



to record, classify and summarize the resulting data, and to communicate the 
information produced thereby in various reports and statements to appropriate 
decision-makers. 

The major in accounting consists of a coherent sequence of accounting 
and other courses which provide the conceptual foundation and basic skills 
to begin a career in accounting practice or to use as an appropriate 
background for such related careers as financial services, computer science, 
management, industrial engineering, law and others. Accountants work in 
public accounting, business, government and non-profit organizations.

Economics 

Economics is a way of thinking based on the premise that individuals 
make decisions that advance their own interests. From this premise, economics 
attempts to predict: ( I ) individual behavior and (2 ) the social order that results 
from the interaction of many individual decision-makers. Finally, economics 
involves evaluation of the resulting social order. 

The three aspects of economic study are related to citizenship and 
careers. First, the attempt to predict individual behavior results in the deriva- 
tion of several economizing principles that are useful in business practice. 
Second, much of the interaction of individuals is in the form of exchanges 
in markets. Knowledge of how markets function is helpful both to business 
people and voters who will make decisions about such market-related 
economic matters as taxes, interest ceilings, minimum wages, and public utility 
rates. Third, the practice in evaluating different social orders leads students 
to replace their unschooled opinions about complex situations with disciplined 
thought. This practice should be of service to those planning careers as lawyers, 
politicians, civil servants, or religious professionals. 

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree in economics focuses 
on the first two of these three aspects of economic study while the Bachelor 
of Arts degree focuses on the second and third.

• •> • 



Organization 



The Graduate Division is organized as one of the six academic divisions 
of the University. All graduate work is administered by the Graduate Division, 
which is governed by the Teacher Education Council under the policies of 
the University. The Teacher Education Council is the policy-making body 
chosen from the graduate faculty and administration, under the leadership 
of the chairman of the Graduate Division. 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide well-qualified stu- 
dents with the opportunity to obtain the first graduate degree, to provide 
members of the teaching profession 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. All students who receive graduate 
degrees must possess a broad knowledge of the literature of their field of 
study, be capable of sustained study, exhibit the power of independent think- 
ing, and possess reasonable knowledge of the techniques of research. 



137 



Admission 

Upon recommendation of the chairman of the Teacher Education Council 
and approval of the Teacher Education 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 either the Graduate Record Examination (aptitude portion), the 
National Teacher Examination (commons and teaching field), or the Miller 
Analogies 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 Admis- 
sions as soon as possible but at least 20 days prior to the term in which the 
applicant expects to enroll. These forms should be accompanied by a $20 
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 20 days prior to the proposed time of 
enrollment. All documents become the property of the University and will 
not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate Division in the 
term indicated on the application, the applicant should notify the Office of 
Admissions of the change and indicate a new date of entrance, if applicable. 
Otherwise, the original admissions will be canceled, the file discontinued, and 
a new application may 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 admission to candidacy, see the 
section Admission to Candidacy. 

Classification 

Students may be admitted to the Graduate Division under any one of 
the following classifications. 

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. NTE. or MAT. and the rec- 
ommendation of the chairman of the Graduate Division, and who has 
completed all prerequisites required for admission may be admitted as a 
regular graduate student. 

Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of the standards 
required for admission as a regular student or a qualified senior may be 
admitted under conditions specified at the time of admission by the Chairman 
of the Teacher Education Council and approved by the Teacher Education 

138 



Council. The provisionally admitted student may apply to the Chairman of 
the Graduate Division for reclassification 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 requirements for the 
bachelor's degree may be permitted to enroll in courses for graduate credit 
provided that: ( 1 ) the student has the permission of the head of the education 
department and the Chairman of the Graduate Division; (2) the student is 
otherwise qualified for admission to graduate study except for the degree; 
and (3) the total load in a semester would not exceed 1 5 semester hours. Under 
no circumstances may a course be used for both graduate and undergraduate 
credit. 

Transient. A student in good standing in another recognized 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 applica- 
tions the student must submit a transient student application form completed 
by the graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for credit. Any student 
admitted on this basis should understand that registration terminates upon 
the completion of the work authorized by the degree-granting institution. If 
later electing to seek a degree from Oglethorpe University the student must 
make formal application for admission and may petition to have credit earned 
as a transient student applied toward the degree at the University. 

Unclassified. A degree holder who is not a prospective candidate for 
a degree at Oglethorpe University such as a person seeking to meet certifi- 
cation requirements or local school requirements, may be admitted without 
presenting test scores or recommendations. Credit earned by a student in 
this category may be counted toward the degree only with consent of the 
Teacher Education Council. 



Registration 



Registration dates for each term are listed on page 3 of this publication. 
Several weeks prior to the beginning of each term, students may obtain from 
the Registrar's Office a schedule of classes for that particular term. Graduate 
summer sessions may vary slightly either as to dates or length of course. 



Courses and Loads 



Courses numbered 6000 are open only to graduate students. Some Arts 
and Sciences courses with 4000 numbers carry either undergraduate or grad- 
uate credit; graduate 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 12 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 
30 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 can be successfully completed. 

139 



Advisement 



Upon admission to the Graduate Division, each student is assigned to 
a member of the graduate faculty in education who serves as adviser and 
guides the student in planning a program of study. 



Grading 



The quality of work of courses taken in the graduate program is indicated 
by the marks A, B. C, D, 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 

D — Unsatisfactory work 

F — Failing work or unofficial withdrawal 

I — Incomplete may be used if the student, because of unusual cir- 
cumstances, is unable to complete the required work in the pre- 
scribed time interval, provided the student was 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. 



Standards 



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

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

2. If, in any case, the candidate fails to maintain satisfactory academic 
standards a review by the Teacher Education Council will determine 
the student's continuation in a graduate program. 



Admission to Candidacy 



Application for admission to candidacy for the Master of Arts degree 
must be filed with the Chairman of the Graduate Division after the student 
has 12 semester hours of graduate study at Oglethorpe University. Admis- 
sion to candidacy would be given or refused following an examination of the 
overall work of the student and careful review of the work completed at 
Oglethorpe. Notice of action taken on application for admission to candidacy 
would be given in writing to the student and to the student's adviser. The 
student seeking the Master of Arts degree must furnish certification by the 
Chairman of the Education Department of eligibility for first professional cer- 
tification or include appropriate make-up work in the program.
