This Institution comprises two depjirtments, the Collegiate and Pre- 
paratory ; constituting one household of which the President and a portion 
of the facult}'' are resident inembers. The object of the Institution is not 
so much to make practical farmers of the students oi the College, as to 
make the rising generation of farmers thoroughly educated men, with 
special reference to Agricultural pursuits. With this view the course of 
study has been made complete — including the ancient and modern lan- 
guages. Special attention is gi ven to all those sciences that bear in any way 
upon the profession of the farmer, such as Chemistry, Surveying, (espe- 
cially chain surveying,) Entomology and Botany. In Entomology and 
Pomology, this Institution enjoys peculiar advantages. The Museum 
contains the celebrated modeled fruits of Mr. Glover, the United States 
Entomologist, as also his very full and valuable collection of Insects. It 
will also be seen, by a reference to th;i course of study, that those studies 
that tend to adorn as well as to discipline the mind, receive their due 
attention. 



3i H ri c u U u ri^ 



Instruction in Agriculture is the peculiar feature of the College. This 
is both theoretical and practical. Labor or work on the farm is not allowed 
to interfere with studies, but, like the Military Drill in other Institutions, 
it is superadded to the mental training, which is the primary object of the 
College. Tiie out-door exercise, that is systematically required of each 
trtudent, is very happy in its results, whether the pu}>il anticipates being a 
farmer or not, in the health and physical vigor h(^. thereby attains. 

The design in the Horticultural department is to teach practically all 
the nicer and finer operations of gardening, which do not generally re- 
ceive much attention on the farms, ?ind also to cultivate the taste for flow- 
ers and ornamental gardening. 

A Gymnasium is also attached to the College. 



i i s r i p ! i lu . 



The discipline of the C(5Uege is parental in its character. The Presi- 
dent residing in the building witli the students, exercises supervision of 
their manners and morals. 

A daily record is kept of attendance, recitation and conduct. From 
these daily records a monthly report is sent to the parents and guardians.

All delinquencies, whether in lessons or behavior, are entered in n book 
k(^pt for that purpose. The r .>cord against each student may be examined 
by him or his parents at any time on application to the President. When 
an exhibit of this record is sent to any parent or guardian, without a re- 
|uest, it may be regarded as the iirst step towards separating the pnpil 



from the College

The students are all required to attend divine worship every Sunday, 
in tl\e College Chapel, which is on such occasions open for public use; 
also family prajers morning and evening.

The buildings have beers erected for the pupposes of a Scliool and Col- 
lege, and every attention has been paid to their ventilation, and to the 
comfort of the pupils. The students of the College occupy private rooms. 
Those in the preparatory department study in a school-room under super- 
vision of one of the Professors, 

The College is situated on the Washington Turnpike, about three miles 
north of Bladensburg. It is about three quarters of a mile from College 
Station on the Washington Rail Eoad, The Post-otlice address is Mary- 
laud Agricultural College, Prince George's County. 

Or.^itnunuthn^ and C^mm^nccuuut.
