The students in the College of Commerce arrange their studies under the direction of the Classification Committee of the College. This committee consists of the Dean of the College of Commerce (Chairman), the Dean of the College of Natural Sciences, the Dean of the College of Social Sciences, and two other members appointed by the President of the University. The committee has power to arrange in particular cases such sequence, substitution, or alteration of courses as may seem necessary, and to recommend to the Academic Council such changes in the curriculum of the College as from time to time seem advisable.

In general, students are not expected to take more than sixteen units during any half-year. Regular students who are free from deficiencies will be registered for not more than nineteen units. Regular students with deficiencies will be limited to sixteen units, unless their deficiencies are of more than one year's standing, in which case they will be limited to thirteen units.

In addition to the studies enumerated above, all students are required to take the exercises in Physical Culture. Students excused from Military Science are required to make up the deficiency in hours in other departments of study.


Colleges of Mechanics, Mining, and Civil Engineering. The special features of the curricula are as follows: (1) A minimum fouryear course of fifteen units a week, exclusive of Physical Culture and Military Science, has been provided. Including the time given to preparation of studies, this course requires of the student an average of forty-five hours per week. In this minimum course only such studies are included as are essential to professional training. (2) Few studies are pursued at the same time, and they are as nearly as possible interdependent. (3) The relation of practical application to theory is emphasized. Instruction is from the beginning illustrated by exercises in the laboratory, the draughting-room, and the field. (4) An effort is made to utilize the vacations of students for further application of their knowledge in the direction of future professional pursuits. For this purpose summer classes in Surveying, Practical Mining, Mechanical Practice, and Astronomy have been organized. (5) In addition to the minimum of fifteen units* a week, students without deficiencies are allowed to elect four units a week from any of the courses given in the University for which they have the necessary preparation. In general, students are advised to choose these additional units of study from courses in Modern Languages and Literatures, History, and Political Economy. But they may, if they so desire, pursue special lines of technical study in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mineralogy, Petrography, Mechanics, Surveying, Electricity, Mining, and Metallurgy, in addition to the minimum requirements prescribed in the respective colleges.

The sequence of studies in the colleges of engineering is such that students who enter in January, instead of in August, will, as a rule, require four and a half years to complete the full course.

Colleges of Agriculture and Chemistry. The curricula are organized upon a basis somewhat similar to that of the Colleges of General Culture, but the Prescribed studies are determined with a view to the

*The unit of credit is one hour of lecture or recitation a week for one half-year; hours in laboratory or field not requiring preparation are estimated at a lower rate than recitations and lectures.

technical as well as the general training of the student, and the Group or Cognate Elective includes in proper proportion advanced courses characteristic of the college. In the College of Chemistry, about onehalf of the course is prescribed, one-quarter of the course consists of Free Electives, and one-quarter of Group Electives, but the greater part of the Group Elective must be in Chemistry. The remainder of the Group Elective may be chosen from allied subjects. In the College of Agriculture about two-thirds of the course is prescribed in preliminary, liberal, and technica! studies. The remainder consists of Free Electives and electives consisting of Agriculture and cognate studies.



The Faculty of each College consists of the President of the University and the resident Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, and Lecturers giving instruction in the College.


The requirements for admission are: (A) Oral and Written Expression, (1) English, (3) Algebra, (4) Plane Geometry, (5) History and Government of the United States, (11) Physics, either (6) Latin or (8) Greek or (14) English or (15a2) French or (1562) German, (12b) Chemistry, and either (12a) Advanced Mathematics or (12c) Botany or (12) Zoology. Furthermore, an equivalent in Entomology will be accepted in place of (12d) Zoology.

Preparation in the branches of natural science named above is valuable, not so much for the actual knowledge of facts it brings, as for the habit of accurate observation it should enforce. Hence, instruction with objective demonstration by competent teachers is strongly recommended. Its proper conduct in the various branches is indicated on page 72. Previous experience of farm life and work is, of course, a valuable preparation for University studies in Agiculture. The requirements for graduation from this college, with the degree of B.S., are set forth in the following scheme.* The studies are explained in detail in the description of the Courses of Instruction.
