GENERAL INFORMATION 

The fifth session of the Summer School of the Maryland State College begins 
Tuesday, June 24th, 1919, and continues for six weeks, ending August 1st. 

The work of the Summer School was designed originally for rural teachers, 
and the attendance has been largely of that class. Special attention is given 
to the needs of these teachers again this year. It has been found, however, 
that there are many persons who desire to pursue courses in other lines of work 
who can come to the College conveniently during the summer session. To meet 
the needs of these people the program of studies is greatly enlarged. Courses 
academic and professional in character are offered for teachers of all classes of 
school work, elementary, secondary, and vocational; for sp>ecial students, as 
farmers, breeders, dairymen, home makers, chemists, public speakers, and persons 
wishing to meet college entrance requirements; and for students who are candi- 
dates for degrees in agriculture, chemistry, education, engineering, home eco- 
nomics, and liberal arts. 

The instruction in the Summer School, which is an integral part of the College 
work, is free to all students of Maryland. 

LOCATION 

The Maryland State College is located in Prince George's County, Maryland, 
on the Washington Division of the B. & O. R. R., eight miles from Washington 
and thirty-two miles from Baltimore; and on the City and Suburban Electric 
Railway, eight miles from Washington and twelve miles from Laurel. 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington Boulevard. 
The site of the College is particularly beautiful. The buildings occupy the 
crest of a commanding hill, which is covered with forest trees, and overlooks a 
broad valley and a number of suburban towns. In front, extending to the 
Boulevard, is a broad, rolling campus, the drill ground and athletic field of the 
students. A quarter of a mile to the northeast are the buildings of the Experi- 
ment Station. The College farm contains about three hundred acres, and is 
devoted to fields, gardens, orchards, vineyards, poultry, etc., used for experimental 
purposes and demonstration work in agriculture. 



REGISTRATION 

Monday, June 23rd, is registration day. The office of the Registrar, however, 
will be op)en on Friday, June 20th, and on Saturday, June 21st. Students should 
register on these days and be ready for class work on the morning of Tuesday, 
June 24th. It is ix)ssible to register in advance and reserve rooms by sending a 
letter of application to the Director of the Summer School. Students are urged 
to register for not more than nine credit hours. 



TERMS OF ADMISSION 

Teachers and special students not interested in a degree are admitted without 
examination to the courses of the summer session for which they are qualified. 
Before registering in such courses, however, they must consult the Director 
or the instructors in charge of the courses in which they wish to register. 

The admission requirements for those who desire to become candidates for a 
degree are the same as for any other session of the College and involve graduation 
from a standard four-year high school. Before registering, a candidate for a 
degree should consult the Dean of the school from which he expects the degree 
to be recommended. 

Regularly registered students wishing to attend the lectures or a portion of the 
lectures of courses without doing the work connected therewith are permitted 
to enroll in such courses as auditors without additional charge. Before registering 
for work of this character, however, a student must consult the Director or the 
instructor in charge of the course in which he wishes to be an auditor. 

DESIGNATION OF COURSES 

Courses numbered from 1 to 99 with an S before the number, as, for example. 
El. Ed. S. 1 1, are sp>ecial Summer School courses and are not offered during the 
regular collegiate year. 

Courses numbered from 101 to 199 with an S following the number, as Elng. 
101 S, are modifications of courses of the same number in the College catalog 
to meet Summer School conditions. 

Courses numbered from 101 to 199 without the S, as H. E. Ed. 109, are identical 
in every way with courses of the same symbol and number in the College catalog. 

The symbols, for examples: Eiig., H. E. Ed., Agric. Ed., refer to the subject 
matter grouping under which such courses are found in the general catalog. 

CREDIT AND CERTIFICATES 

Since the courses are offered in the Schools of Agriculture, Chemistry, Educa- 
tion, Engineering, Home Economics and Liberal Arts, all the regular courses 
and virtually all the special courses carry full academic credit toward a degree- 
Students completing the Summer School work in any of the subjects and passing 
a satisfactory examination are issued a certificate showing the amount and grade 
of the work done. Students not registered in the College are issued certificates 
of attendance. Educational courses satisfactorily completed will be credited 
by the State Superintendent of Schools to one of the following objects: first, to 
meet the minimum requirements of professional preparation for teaching in this 
State, viz: at least six weeks' attendance at a school of pedagogy; second, the 
renewal of teachers* certificates which requires six weeks* additional professional 
training for those of second and third grade; third, to meet the requirement for 
advancing the grade of a teacher's certificate according to the by-laws of the 
State Board of Exlucation, as published in 1918. 

The term hour is the unit of credit as in other sessions of the College. A term 
credit hour is one lecture or recitation a week for a term, which is approximately 
twelve weeks in length. Two or three hours of laboratory or field work are 
counted as equivalent to one lecture or recitation. During the summer session 
a lecture course meeting five times a week for six weeks, requiring outside work, 
is given a weight of three term credit hours, or two semester hours, or one year 
hour. All credit is listed as term credit hours. 



ACCOMMODATIONS 

The large dormitory, Calvert Hall, is reserved for women students. Gerneaux 
Hall, used by the students in home economics as a practice house, will accommodate 
a limited number. Preference of rooms in the latter hall will be given to students 
in home economics. Students who desire to live in private homes may be accom- 
modated in the village or in the nearby towns of Hyattsville, Riverdale and 
Berwyn. A select list of rooming and boarding places will be furnished upon 
request. 

Dormitory students will supply themselves with towels, pillow cases, sheets 
and blankets. No additional charge is made for rooms in either Calvert or 
Gerneaux Halls. To secure such rooms early application to the Director is 
necessary. Rooms may be reserved in advance, but will not be held later than 
noon of Tuesday, June 24th. 

EXPENSES 

The instruction is free to all students of Maryland and the District of Columbia. 
A registration fee of $5.00 will be charged to all applicants. This fee will be used 
to defray the expenses for athletic property, library, janitor service, and general 
use of college property. A special fee which Is named in connection with the 
description of certain courses will be charged for the use of laboratory materials. 
One half of the fees, including board, must be paid upon registration, and the 
remainder at the beginning of the third week of the term. The cost of board 
at the College Dining Hall will be $30.00 for the entire term, or at the rate of 
$5.00 per week. A cafeteria lunch will be served at the Dining Hall at noon for 
the benefit of day students at reasonable rates. 

The total expenses for the term, exclusive of laundry, railroad fare, need not 
exceed $35.00. Students may have their laundry work done at the College 
laundry at the rate of approximately fifty cents per week. 

BOOKS 

The College and Experiment Station Library will be open for use of students. 
It contains a large number of carefully chosen reference books in the sciences, 
education, history, biography, poetry and the standard books of fiction. In 
addition it contains a number of State and National rep>orts and surveys. 

Teachers pursuing methods courses should bring with them any text-books 
they may have dealing with the subjects they expect to teach. In all courses 
in which fees are charged text-books are furnished by the College. Text-books 
for all courses may be procured at the College Book Store. 

OBSERVATION SCHOOL 

In co-operation with the College Park Home and School Improvement Associa- 
tion and the school officials of Prince George's County, an observation school 
is maintained for demonstrational purposes. The school is essentially rural in 
character and embraces grades one to six, inclusive. 

The school serves as a vacation school to the pupils of the College Park com- 
munity and affords them an opportunity to make up deficiencies due to sickness 
and other causes and to review and round out instruction received during the 
regular school year. The school is free and a limited number of pupils may 
be accepted from other communities. Application for entrance to the school 
should be in the hands of the Director not later than a week prior to its opening. 



Through the courtesy of its executive committee, students in education are 
given an opportunity to attend one meeting of the College Park Home and 
School Improvement Association. 

CONFERENCE HOURS 

Conference hours are planned for two special purposes: (1) To give the 
student an opportunity to confer with the instructor on subjects relative to class 
work. (2) To serve as an hour during which round table discussions may be 
held on topics of common interest. Conference hours are arranged by indi- 
vidual instructors at the beginning of the session. 

SPECIAL LECTURES 

Arrangements are made with educators of national reputation to give special 
lectures from time to time in fields of particular interest to students in the Sum- 
mer School. Special conference hours are arranged for such lectures in order 
that students may have an opportunity to meet leaders in their special lines of 
work. Details are announced in the weekly calendar. 

STUDENT HEALTH 

The College makes every effort to conserve the health of the students and 
maintains a hospital, physician and competent nurse. The hospital is located 
on the campus. All cases of illness should be promptly reported to the College 
physician. Dr. W. A. Griffith, whose office is located in the College Hospital, 
phone Berwyn 74-M. 

SOCIAL EVENINGS 

On Friday evenings during the session informal gatherings of students are 
held on the campus. Orchestra and light refreshments are furnished, and the 
hours from 8.30 to 1 1 .00 are given over to various kinds of entertainments directed 
by student committees. These evenings afford agreeable relaxation and enable 
the students of the Summer School to become well acquainted. In the last week 
of the session, the Dramatic Club will present an open-air play. Students will 
also be given an opportunity to engage in an evening play hour under the super- 
vision of the Department of Physical E.ducation. 



EXCURSIONS 

The vicinity of College Park holds a wealth of historic and geologic interests. 
Saturday excursions will be arranged to Washington, Mount Vernon, Great Falls 
and other places of interest. 

ATHLETICS 

Students will have use of the athletic field, tennis and basket-ball courts and the 
Y. M. C. A. game rooms. 

CORRESPONDENCE WITH INSTRUCTORS 

Prospective students who desire information concerning individual courses 
are urged to correspond directly with the instructors in charge of the courses, 
addressing letters in care of Maryland State College, College Park, Maryland.
