The Maryliuid Agriculliiriil College 

Is situated in Prince George's County, nine miles from AYash- 
ington, twonty-ciglit. from Ealtlnioro, and tljroc-fourtlis of a 
mile from College Station on llie Washington Branch, ])alti- 
more and Ohio Kailroad. The College lUiIldlng, which 13 
spacious and substantial, is in thorough rej)air, lias fine cham- 
bers, is well ventilated and wanned, and, lighted throughout 
with gas, combines every requisite of a comfortable and 
pleasant home. The location, which experience has proved 
eminently healthful, is on the edge of a Irandsomc forest 
growth, and commands a fine view of the pleturosqiic coun- 
tr/ around it. 

Eight trains (four from Washington, four from J^altimore) 
stop at the College Station q.\q,v)' day, thus aHurding (conve- 
nient and speedy access to the Institution. 

TiiC Trustees design to make the Jnstitution in fact, what 
its name im])lies, a ?tlaryland C()llc(jc^ v/hich shall ofler in- 
ducements to Marylanders to com})lete their college studies* 
at home, and which shall also be attractive to those outside of 
the State. 

^ijriruUttrr, 



The peculiar feature of this Institution, is the blending of 
instruction in the theory and j»raftiee (if Agriculture with tho 
usual sv;;tcniatic educational tiaininjr. The several sci(Micc;j 
embraced in the course of study, with sncli practical observa- 
tions in the daily lectures as ir.dicaie their bearing upon tann 
operations, and instru(!tion by illustration from th(^ field an<l 
garden, are the means used to this eiul. }t is not to bo 
presumed that a young man, in the course of acqiiiring hi.-, 
education, can make himself a practical farmer, but it is I»e- 
lieved that our system, in connection with a will s(«h K(<l, 
well worked farm, and the skilful j)r;ictfce of ;;n.d« ;.'j aJid 
orchard culture, has in it enough of i\ic nH-rrly pr.i •**<.*? ^»

n('ooinj)lish our ends, to put (lie iStiidoiil. in tlic way of bccom-' 
iiiT a thoroughly infoniicd Agru'iilturlst; and thn.s foster an 
jirdcnt love for the noble piir.suit of agriculture. In this way, 
we Iiope to arrest and counterwork i\\ii tendency of a very 
lar^e number of our best young men to abandon the real 
lja}>pnie.s.s and ])rofIt.s of rural ]>ursuits for the fmcied gains 
and pleasures of city life in coninicreial and other eni])Ioy- 
ments. 

D j Sic iij line. . 

Tiic discipline of the College is strictly 'parental in its 
character, TJie President and Faculty residing in the build- 
ing with the students, and eating at the same table, exercise 
su])ervision of their manners and morals. 

The aim h to inculcate such lessons, and instil such prinei- 
|>les, as shall lead to the formation and growth of true nianly 
character, and thus supplement and foster such impressions as 
are made in the best-regulated homos. 

A daily record is kept of attendaiico, recitation and con- 
duet. 3''rom these daily records a bi-n\onthly report is sent 
to the j)arents and guardians. 

All delinc|ueneics, whether in lessons or behavior, shall bo 
treated as the demerits of the case demand. 



The Students arc required to attend family prayers, morn- 
ing and evening; also, divine worship every Sunday in the 
College Chaj)cl — (unless excused on account of conscientious 
scruples or sickness) — the Cha])el, on these occasions, is open 
for the public use. 

Jllilif:inj (Tnciii-n. 

TifK !MiLlTAT:Y CouiiSK consists of stated drills, and of 
leerures on tactics. 

Students are re<piired to wear a uniform on the Sabbatli 
d:iy and on parade. .

By the liberality of the JjCglslaturo, we arc cr^ablcd to 
receive sixty students from tlie Stato^ free of charf/cs for luitior 
and use of bool's, being a deduction of seventy-five dollars 
per annum. Twelve of the.se State students will be received

pn-mptly suj^dy students with the proper uniforms, at the 
lowest prices.

The studies of cacli studenL arc assigned by tlie ]<^iculty, 
and in no case sliall a .study be omitted from the course, 
without tlic written instruetion to that cfl'ect of his parent 
'or ejuardian to the President. 

All the Tcxt-]5ooks of tlic course are furnislicd at the 
College. 

Arrangements have been made bv which all students wlio 
desire it, can reecyve instruction in Music — Vocal and Instru- 
mental — and in ])rawinu- at a small extra co.-it. 

The Trustees have in contemplation the establishment of 
a Telegra]»hlc connection between the College and the Cities 
of Washington and ]>altimore, as a convenience for the dis- 
patch of buriiness, as well as an important educational agency. 

licgular lessons in Practical Farming and Gardening, Ilur- 
ticullurc, Floriculture, Experimental Science, and in Natural 
History, are given to every class in College. * 

The Trustees have also made ])rovision for work-'shoi)s for 
a Carpenter and ]>lacksmith, both as a matter of economy 
and for the benefit of those students who may have a tiiste 
for these mechanic arts. 

The newspapers of the entire State come regularly to tlic 
College; thus affording students agreeable and instructive 
light reading, and at the same time keeping up their know- 
ledge of the aflairs cf their respective counties. 

The earnest joint-eflbrt of the Trustees and Faculty is to 
build up an Institution wherein young men may liot only 
acquire a ihorourjh collegiate education, but also become 
grounded in the principles 'of moral integrity, sound and 
varied intellectual culture, and a knowledge of those facts 
and rudiments which underlie the more thorough prepara- 
tions for Agricultural, Professional, Mercantile or Meelianlcid 
pursuits.
