Is situated in Prince George's county, nine miles from Wash- 
ington, twenty-eight from Baltimore, and three-fourths of a 
mile from College Station, on the Washington branch, Balti- 
more and Ohio railroad. The College building, which is spac- 
ious and substantial, is in thorough repair, has fine chambers, 
is well ventilated and warmed, 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 handsome forest growth, and com- 
mands a fine view of the picturesque country around it. 

Ten trains {^ve from Washington, Rve from Baltimore) 
stop at the College Station every day, thus affording conveni- 
ent and speedy access to the Institution. 

^. B. — Persons coming to the College are notified to stop at 
" College Station," on the Washington and Baltimore railroad, 
when conveyance will be furnished to the College. 

RE-ORGANIZATION. 



The Trustees have deemed it expedient to reorganize the 
Faculty, and reconstruct the course of study, so as to adapt the 
College more fully to the present wants and requirements of 
the State ; and to conform more strictly to the requisitions of 
the law of Congress granting the land script, passed since the 
original organization of the Institution. 

They have organized a Preparatory Department, in which 
deficient students may be fitted to pass the examination neces- 
sary for entrance into the regular college course ; and have 
committed it to the care of Prof. Worthington, whose long ex- 
perience and devotion to the College pre-eminently fit him for 
this position. They have also established a separate and dis- 
tinct chair of Agriculture, to give more prominence and effect 
to that leading and important branch of instruction, with which 



is also connected the instruction and practice in the mechanic 
arts. This chair is filled by Professor Hutton, a young gen- 
tleman of fine culture and abilities, and who is animated mth 
an earnest and laudable zeal for success in this, heitherto ne- 
glected, and difiicult branch of collegiate instruction, so as fully 
to meet the requirements of the law. 

The Chemical, Mathematical and Classical Departments, re- 
main under the same charge as heretofore, by the re-election 

of the Professors. 

To meet the wants of all classes of students, the Faculty un- 
der the direction of the Board of Trustees, have arranged two 

courses of study in the regular College Department, either of 

which may be selected by the student upon his entrance. 

First. A four years course of Arts, including Agriculture, 
ordinary scientific and English studies with Classics and Mod- 
ern Languages. 

Second. A three years course of Science, which is the same 
as the preceeding with the omission of the Classics and includ- 
ing at least one Modern Language. 

Thirdly. To provide for those who contemplate passing only 
a short time at the College, such students will be allowed to 
pursue a one years course, arranged at the discretion of the 
Faculty. ^ 

Finally, it has been determined to make for the future no 
charge for tuition in any of the regular Preparatory and Col- 
legiate branches, and to put the charge for board so low as to 
bring the advantages of the College w^ithin the reach of the 
farmers of Maryland and the adjoining States. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline of the College is conducted in accordance with 
the system of rules laid down in this catalogue ; and it is ex- 
pected that all students shall conform to these rules, and to the 
proper authority of the officers, in enforcing them so long as 
the}^ remain connected with the institution. For persistent 
infraction of the rules, or any conduct unbecoming a scholar or 
a gentlemen, students will be liable to suspension, expulsion, 
or a request addressed to the parent or guardian that they be 



(' 



10 

withdrawn. After tlie expiration of a term of suspension the 
student may return to his class upon passing the necessary ex- 
aminations. 

1^0 student will be permitted to go on with his class Avho fails to 
pass satisfactory examinations at the end of each term. When, 
however, the deficiency is slight and arises from a cause not 
affecting his moral character, he will be allowed to proceed 
upon condition of making up his deficiency and passing the re- 
quisite examination within a specified time. 

HOUSEHOLD ECONOMY. 

Every arrangement is made as to rooms, warmth, lights, 
lodging, meals, attention of servants, recreations, &c., &c., to 
make our students contented, comfortable, and happy. 

DIVINE WORSHIP. 

The students are required to attend religious exercises in the 
Chapel morning and evening. 

The Chapel will be opened every Sunday. Services, when 
not conducted by an ordained minister, will be conducted by 
Prof. Worthington, a licensed lay reader of the Episcopal 
Church. On such occasions the public are invited to attend. 

I MILITARY TACTICS 

The Military course consists of stated drills, and of lectures 
on tactics. 

Students are required to wear a uniform on the Sabbath-day 
and on parade. 

VOCATIONS AND TERMS. 

The scholastic term is divided into two terms ; but in order 
to prevent the serious interruptions caused by short holidays, 
there will be but one regular vacation, beginning the last week 
of June and closing the middle of September. 

The first term will open on the 15th of September, and close 
with the month of January. The second term will begin 1st 
of February, and end with the College year, the last of June. 

When parents or guardians wish their childi;en or wards to 
visit home, or elsewhere, a letter to that efiect should be addres- 
sed to the President. Frequent visits home or any from the 



V 11 

College are disapproved, as they have a tendency to unsettle 
the pupil's mind, and thus disqualify him for giving necessary 
attention to his studies. 



Payble in Advance. 
\st Term, — Board, lights, fuel washing, room rents, use of fur- 
niture, &c. - - - - - $100 00 
Matriculation fee . - - . 5 00 



Total - - - - - - 1105 00 

2d Term. — Same as first, less the matriculation fee. 

Observe: The terms are strictly in advance, and pre-payment 
in every case will be required, unless satisfactory arrangement 
is made with the President of the Faculty for settlement by 
note at short date. . 

ISo deduction will be made for absence, except in case of 
protracted illness; nor will money be refunded in case 
of a student being withdrawn or dismissed during the term, un- 
less at the discretion of the President. 

A student's pocket money may be deposited with the Treas- 
urer, and should be limited to a small sum. . 

Special damages are assessed on those who unnecessarily in- 
jure or destroy College propert}^, (where they are known ;) in 
other cases they will be assessed equally upon all the students. 

STATE STUDENTS. 

By the liberality of the Legislature, we are enabled to receive 
sixty students free of charge, for tuition and use of hooks. Tui- 
tion is now made free to all, but we will still accord the free 
use of books to sixty students, twelve from each Congressional 
district. Those who wish to avail themselves of this privilege 
should apply to the President of the Board of School Commiss- 
ioners of their respective counties. 

By order of the Board of Trustees, provision is made by which 
a limited number of students (not exceeding ten) can make 
part payment in labor for board and tuition. 

UNIFORM AND UNDER CLOTHING. 

Arrangements have been made with J. J. Bunting k Co., 



12 

Merchant Tailors, IS^o. 10 St. Paul street, Baltimore, who will 
promptly supply students with the proper uniforms, at the 
lowest prices. 

Each one must bring a supply of towels, and have each 
article of clothing marked with full name. 

REQUISITES FOR ADMISSION, &c. 

Students will be received at any point in the College course 

for which they are qualified ; but no student will be permitted 
to begin the course who cannot pass a good examination in 
ordinary common school studies, i. e. Reading ,Writing, Arith- 
metic, Grammar and Geography, all not so qualified will be 
sent to the Preparatory Department. . 

All candidates for admission to any department of the Col- 
lege must be over twelve years of age, and present satisfactory 

evidence oi good orderly habits. 

Students coming from other institutions must produce cer- 
tificates of honorable standing while members of the same. Also, 
certificates oi vaccination from the attending physician, or from 
other reliable source. 

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

Applications for admission, or for further information, 
should be addressed to the President of Maryland Agricultural 
College, " Agricultural College P. 0., J/c?."

[Reraarks. 



This Institution, as will be seen from its extensive and var- 
ied "course of study," supplies a manifest want of the com- 
munity. 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 circumstances are difi:erent, 
are not required to pursue studies that have no immediate and 
direct reference to the active business duties of the future to- 
wards which they are looking. All such are provided with 
through instruction in those brances which more particularly 
relate to the chosen vocation. 

Each student will be required to pursue in regular order one 
of the courses of study prescribed by the Board of Trustees ; 
and in no case shall a study be omitted from such course with- 
out the written instruction to that effect, from his parent or 
guardian, to the President. 

All the text-books of the course are furnished at the College 
and students have use of them free of cost, except in case ot 
loss or damage. 

Special instruction for all who may desire it, will be furnish- 
ed at Professors' rates in Phonography, Telegraph and Music ; 
and the War Department at Washington, has agreed to estab- 
lish a Signal service station at the College for instruction in 
that new and interesting branch of Meteorology. 

Regular lessons in practical farming and gardening, horti- 
culture floriculture, experimental science, and in natural history, 
are given to every class in College. 

Provision has also been made for in-door industrial pursuits, 
both as a matter of economy and for the benefit of those stu- 
dents who may have a desire for a knowledge of these me- 
chanic arts. 

An apartment of the College lias been fitted up as a " Read- 
ing Room," to which the best Quarterly, Monthly, and Weekly 
Journals come regularly ; among these some dozen or more of 
the leading Agricultural periodicals of the country, giving our 
students thereby the benefit of converse with the freshest and 
best thoughts of this progressive age. In addition to these, 
the newspapers of the entire State are received weekly, thus 
supplying our young men with agreeable and instructive light 
reading, and, at the same time, keeping up their knowledge of, 
and interest in, the affairs of their respective counties,
