THE MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 

Is situated in Princo George's county, nine miles iVoni 
Washington, twenty-eiglit from Baltimore, and lliree- 
}",)iirtlis of a mile from College Station, on the AVasliington 
branch, Baltimore and Ohio railroad. The College building, 
which is spacious and substantial, is ia thorough repair, lias 
tine chambers, is well ventilated and warmed_, and, lighted 
throughout with gas, combines every requisite of a com- 
ibrtable and pleasant home. The location, which experience 
has proved eminently healthful, is on the edge of a hand- 
some forest growth, and commands a fine view of the 
picturesque country around it. 

Being situated amidst quiet, rural scenes, stuckMits at this 
College are hap])ily removed from those temptations and 
vices which arc so prevalent in cities and towns, and which 
often aflect injuriously the morals of young men. 

The earnest joint effort of the Trustees and Faculty is to 
build up an Institution wherein young men may not only 
acquire a thoroKgh 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 fcH* Agricultural, Professional, Mercantile, or ^Eechan- 
ical i)ursuits. 

The design is to make the Institution, in fact, what its 
name imi)lies, a Maryland Coller/e, which shall offer induce- 
ments to Marylanders to complete their college studies at 
home, and which shall also be attractive to those outside of 
the State. 

Eight trains (four from Washington, four from Ihiltiniore) 
sto]) at the College Station every day, thus aflording conve- 
nient and speedy access to the Institution. 

K. ]j.- — ^Persons coming to the College are notified to stop 
at '■• College Station," on the Washington and Baltimori.' 
railroad, whence conveyance will be furnished to t.li'' ColU'ge. 



x^ 8 

AGEICULTUBE. ' ^ . 

The ])eculiar feature of tin's Institution is the blenJiiig of 
instruction in the tlieory and practice of agrieultme with the 
usual systematic educational training. The several science'j 
embraced in tlie course of study, with such piactical obser- 
vations in the daily lectures as indicate their bearing uj)on 
farm operations, and instruction by illustration from the 
field and garden, are the means used to this end. It is not 
to be presumed that a young man, in the course of acquiring 
his education, can mate himself a practical farmer, but it 
is believed that our system of occasional out-door work, in 
connection with a well stocked, well worked farm of 300 
acres, and the skillful pi'actice of garden and orchard culture, 
has in it enough of the uiejcly practical to accomplish our 
ends— to i)ut the student in the wav of becoming' a tlior- 
oughly informed agricultuiist, and thus foster an ardeirt 
love for the uoblC pursuit of agriculture. In this way we 
hope to arrest and counterwuik the tendency of a very laige 
number of our best young men to abandon the real hap})i- 
uess and profits of rural pursuits for tlie fancied gains and 
})leasures of cit3'lile, in commercial and other em])l()yments. 

DISCIPLINE. , 

The discipline of the College is strictly parental in its 
character. The President and l^aculty, residing in the 
building Avith the students^ and eating at the sauic table, 
exergise supervision of their manners and morals. 

The aim is to inculcate such lessons, and instil aufAi prin- 
ciples, as shall lead, to the formation and growth of true 
manly character, and thus supplement and ibster such im- 
pressions as are made in the best regulated homes. 

A daily record is ke],)t of attendance, recitation, and con- 
duct. From these daily records a report is sent to the 
parents and guardians in the middle and at the end of 
each term. 

All delinquencies, whether in lessons or hehavif)r, shall 
be treated as the demerits of the case demand. 




9 



l)isci]iline begins with instruction, and goes on with j)er- 
Niiasion remonstrance, rehuke, and i>unishn)eijt, as tlieca.se 
inav letinire, and ends in dismissal, if the offender is incor- 

rigible.' 

Tlie first lesson a student must learn is that of obedience 
(i, outJtorilij. Ko one is fit to govern who has not, in his 
vouth, learned to ohey. Let it be distinctly undeistood tliat 
this Institution is not the })lace for idlers, irijlers, or roicdies. 
When a young man enters our College family, he is not only 
I'Xpected to conduct himself with that earnest applicatio)i 
becoming to a student and a man of business, but also with 
tlie jrrojrrietf/ and decorum characteristic of the society of 
'••entlemcn. Every student is received as a frentleman, and 
is expected to behave as such. 

HOUSEHOLD ECONOMY. 

llveiy ari'angement is made as to rooms, warmth, lights, 
lodging, meals, attention of servants, recreations. Sec, cl'c, 
ti) mahe our students contented, comfortable, and hap|)y. 

The best groceries the markets afford are purchased for 
tlie use of the College, while, from the abundant products 
uf the dairy, farm, and garden, the table is always amply 
supplied. The domestic economy of the College is })resided 
over by the wife of the President, and the linen departtnent 
is in charge of Mrs. Prof. Worthinjiton. These ladies iiive 
close and constant attention to the interests committed to 
their care. Should a student become sick, he will find in 
the ladies of the Institution the gentle and tender watch- 
care of nursing mothers or affectionate sisters. 

DIVINE WORSHIP. 

The students are reciuired to attend family prayers, morn- 
ing iiud evening; also, divine worship every Sunday in the 
Si» College Chapel, (unless excused on account of conscientious 
scruples, or sickness.) Tlie chapel, on these occasions, is open 
lor the public use. 

^riie morals of students are conscientious! v reirarded with- 
i»ut the least a})proach to sectarian intei teienee with theii

religious senlinients. With verorence to politics, tlie same 
course of non-interfeioiice is pursued. In the lecture-room, 
literary societies; and in social life, mere political issues 
and qnKvitions are 2)ractlcally Ignored. 

MILITARY TACTICS. 

The 3Iilitary Course consists of stated drills, and of lec- 
tures on tactics. : * . 

Students are required to wear a unforni on the Sabbath- 
day aud on parade. • , 

VACATIONS AN D TEllMS. 

Tlie scholastic year is divided into two terms ; but in 
order to prevent the serious interruptions caused by short 
holidavs, there will be but one rei2fular vacation, betrinnino; 
the last week of June and closing the middle of Septembei*. 

The first term will open on the 15th of Septenjber, and 
close with the month of January. The second term, will 
begin Js-t of February, and end witli the College year, the 
last of June. 

Wheii parents or guardians wish their children or wards 
to visit home, or elscivJicre, a letter to that effect should be 
addressed to the President. Frequent visits home or away 
from the College are disapproved, as they have a tendency 
to unseUlc the pupil's mind, and thus disqualify him . for 
giving necessary attention to his studies. 

EXPENSES. 

PA YABLE JN AD VANCE.

Xo deduction will bo made fur absence, exce])t in case of 
]>iotracted illness ; nor will money be refunded in tlic case 
o{ -d student being witlidrawn or dismissed duiing the term, 
unless at the discretion of the President. 

A student's pocket-money may be deposited witli the 
Treasurer, and shoubl be limited to a small sum. 

Special damages are assessed on those who unnecessarily 
injure or destroy College pro})erty_, (where they are known ;) 
• in other cases they will be assessed equally upon all the 
students, 

STATE STUDSXTTS. 

By the liberality of the Legislature, we are enabled to 
receive sixty students from the State, free of charges for 
iuition and use of hool's, being a deduction of seventy-five 
dollars })er annum. Twelve of these State students ^vill be 
received from each Congressional district, and where any 
ilistrict fails to apply for the number to which it is entitled, 
a}»])licants from other districts will bo ap])ointed. Ap|dica- 
tions should bo made to the President of the Board of School 
Commissioners of the respective counties, and when granted, 
should reach the President of the Colleiie bv the 1st of Sen- 
teniber. 

By order of the Board of Trustees, provision is made by 
which a limited number of students (not exceeding ten) can 
make^7ar/ pai/mcnt in labor for board and tuition. 

Parents or guardians who wish to avail of these ^SState 
scholarships/' should apply immediately, as the nnniber is 
limited, and there is great demand for them. 



UNIFORM AND OTHER CLOTHING. 

« 

Arrangements have been made with J. J. Bi'xtixg i.^' Co., 
Merchant Tailors, No. 10 vSt. Paul street, l>altiinore, who 
will promptly supply students with the [»roper uniforms, at 
tiie lowest prices. 

Lach one must bring a supply of' towels, and have each 
article of clothimj; marked with full name. 



12 



Each student is also rcqulrorl to bring witli liini three 
pairs of wliitc cotton gloves. : -^ 

TESTIMONIALS, &c. 

Students are required to bring testimonials of character 
iVoni the schools thev have attended, and certificates tif 
vaccination. 

Fire-arms of every description, as private property, being 
prohibited, parents are requested not to allow them to be 
brought to the College. 

Application for admission, or for furtiier inform^ition, 
should be addressed to President of Maryland Agricultural 
College, ^'AgricuUaral CoUeye P. 0., 3Id." '.

REMA-RKS. / 



This Institutionj as will be scon from its extensive and 
varied *' course of study," supplies a manifest want of the 
community. Those who have both time and means for a 
thorough collegiate course, will find here all the requisite 
facilities for securing that end. Others, whose circum- 
stances are different, are not required to pursue studies that 
have no immediate and direct reference to the active business 
duties of the future towards which they are looking. All 
such are provided with thorough instruction in those 
branches which more particularly relate to the cliosen vo- 
cation. 

l^lie studies of each student are assigned by the Faculty ; 
and in no case shall a study be omitted from the course 
without, the written instruction to that effect of his parent 
or guardian to the President. 

All the text-])ooks of the course are furnished at the Col- 
lege, and students have the use of them free of cost, except 
in case of loss or damage. 

Arrangements have been made by which all students who 
desire it can receive instruction in music, vocal and instru- 
mental, drawing, and in the science and art of elocution, at 
a small extra cost. 

The Trustees have in contemplation tlie establishment of 
telegraphic communication between the College and the cities 
of Baltimore and Washington, as a convenience for the 
despatch of business, as well as an important educational 
agency. 

Eegular lessons in practical farming and gardening, hor- 
ticulture^ floriculture, experimental science, and in natural 
history, are given to every class in College. 

Provision has also been made for in-door industrial pur- 
suits, both as a matter of economy and for the benefit of
