Courses; Laboratory Courses; Eramination and Credit. 5
Progress in developing the methods and fixing clearly the aim of work in the natural sciences is so rapid that the best results are not always available in text-book form. This fact enhances the importance to teachers of the opportunity the Summer Session offers for practical laboratory work, supplemented by lectures on the principles involved. Such opportunity is offered in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, Geography, Zoology, Geology, and Entomology. In Physics and Chemistry provision will be made for students who wish to do experimental work in preparation for university matriculation.
Examination and Credit
There will be no general period of final examinations. The matter of examinations for credit will be left in the hands of the instructors, who may use the regular recitation hours for that purpose when necessary, or may make special appointments with their classes.
It is intended that University credit shall be given only to attendants who are qualified to do systematic University work. In the absence of formal entrance requirements, the instructor in charge of a given course is to be the judge of the qualifications of candidates for credit. The instructor will enroll as regular students and as candidates for credit only such attendants as present to him, at the outset of the work, satisfactory evidence of preparation for the course to be undertaken.
In general, credit will be given at the rate of one unit for fifteen exercises. A course of five lectures weekly during six weeks would have a credit value of two units. Credit may be given, in due proportion, for a smaller number of exercises, when these are of more than the usual length (which for lectures and recitations is about fiftythree minutes).
The normal amount of credit obtainable during the session, by a student who devotes his whole time to courses strictly of university grade, is six units. A bachelor's degree represents 124 or more units of credit, distributed according to the requirements of the college in which the degree is conferred.
To insure adequate arrangements in due season, and to facilitate prompt communication with prospective students in case of change in present plans, all persons who desire to attend any of the courses are urgently requested to notify the Recorder of the Faculties on or before Wednesday, June 10, using the blank form of application appended to this announcement. All fees must be paid in advance, at the opening of the Summer Session, to the Secretary of the University, at his office in California Hall.
The tuition fee will be fifteen (15) dollars regardless of the number of courses taken. This payment entitles the student to the full privileges of the University Library, and also, in case of illness, to medical advice and hospital care without extra charge. The fee will be required of those who wish to attend as auditors merely, as well as of those who wish to undertake systematic class work and examination.
Only registered students and auditors of the Summer Session will be admitted to lectures and meetings of classes.
The laboratory fee in Physics will be $5. In Chemistry there will be a deposit of $15, of which amount $5 will be returned at the end of the course, less the cost of apparatus that is broken or lost. All necessary apparatus and chemicals, with the exception of platinum ware and small weights, will be furnished by the University.
In Manual Training there will be a fee of $3.50 in each of the courses in woodwork. In Primary Manual Training the fee is $1.50.
There are no dormitories on the campus, but there are many boarding-houses and private families in Berkeley where students may obtain board and room at prices ranging from $25 to $35 per month. As the greater number of the regular students are not in Berkeley during the summer
ample accommodations for all members of the Summer Session. A list of places offering board and room or room alone is kept on file in the office of the Recorder of the Faculties, and every possible assistance will be given to strangers in their search for suitable boarding places. Inquiries should be addressed to the Recorder of the Faculties of the University of California, Berkeley, California. 8 Attending Teachers; Excursions, Receptions, Concerts.
Special efforts will be made during the Summer Session to bring teachers attending it into touch with visiting superintendents, principals, and other school authorities.
Excursions, Receptions, Concerts
In addition to the regular lectures of the Summer Session, arrangements have been made for a number of excursions, concerts, and informal receptions.
Dr. Robert G. Aitken, Astronomer at the Lick Obseryatory and lecturer in astronomy in the Summer Session, will conduct an excursion to Mt. Hamilton for his classes and other members of the Session who are interested. The class in Physical Geography, under the direction of Dr. Harold W. Fairbanks, lecturer in geography during the Summer Session, will make the first part of its trip along the trace of the earthquake fault of April, 1906, and one day will be set aside for a general excursion, when all who desire may accompany the class. At some time during the six weeks, Luther Burbank will receive members of the Summer Session at his home and gardens near Santa Rosa. It is also intended to arrange a trip to Stanford University and an excursion by boat to points on San Francisco Bay, including a visit to the United States Naval Training Station on Yerba Buena Island, and touching at some of the military posts on the Golden Gate.
In addition to these excursions planned by the University there are many interesting and delightful trips which attendants upon the Summer Session may make individually--to such places as the United States Presidio, the United States Mint, both in San Francisco, and the Naval Station at Mare Island.
An effort will be made, through a series of informal receptions, to promote cordial relations between all members of the Session, Faculty and students. It is planned also to hold two or more orchestral concerts in the Greek Theatre. Library; Student Infirmary; Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. 9
Throughout the Summer Session the University Library will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except on Saturdays and Sundays.
Full library privileges, including the home use of books, as accorded to regular University students, will be extended to students in the summer courses without additional fee. Persons who may desire to pursue independent courses of reading or study, during the Summer Session, without attending any of the regular exercises, may have full library privileges, upon application to the Librarian, and payment of $10.
The Student Infirmary
The University has a well equipped infirmary on the campus, with a full complement of physicians and trained nurses. The best of care is thus insured to students, in case of illness, without additional charge.
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.
The Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Associations publish, jointly, a Students' Handbook, containing a map of the University campus and vicinity, a directory of churches, of University organizations, and of important points about Berkeley; also street car and train time tables, college songs and yells, etc. The handbook is distributed free to students in the Summer Session.
Stiles Hall, the Association Building, is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. will maintain an Information Bureau there during the opening days of the Summer Session. The lounging and reading rooms and the services of the General Secretaries are at the disposal of students of the Summer Session.
