NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

1. Applications for admission on regulation University blanks pro-
vided for this purpose should be submitted to the Registrar immediately
after the end of the spring term, and in no case later than September 1,
1939. Applications will not be considered unless received by September
1, 1939. These blanks may be secured from the principal of any Florida
high school or from the Registrar of the University of Florida. The
prospective student should fill out an application (Form I) and mail it to
the Registrar, and request the high school principal to fill out Form II,
which includes the student's high school record. The principal will then
send Form II directly to the Registrar.

2. All prospective students must take and pass the Placement Tests,
besides fulfilling the other requirements, before they will be eligible for
admission. Prospective students who did not take these tests in the
Spring Testing Program in the high schools of the State may take them
at the University during the summer. The tests will be given at 1 P. M.
on alternate Saturdays, beginning June 10, in Room 106, Agriculture
Building. Students are advised to take the tests at the earliest possible
testing period, so they may be advised as to their eligibility for admis-
sion. Admission certificates will not be issued until the Placement Tests
have been passed.
3. Prospective students are advised to be vaccinated against smallpox
and to be inoculated against typhoid fever. Unless a certificate is pre-
sented showing successful vaccination within five years, students will be
vaccinated against smallpox at the time of registration.
4. Students entering the University as freshmen are required to par-
ticipate in the activities of Freshman Week, September 12-16.






INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT


INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

The General College has been organized to administer the work of the freshman and
sophomore years in the University of Florida. All beginning students will register in this
College.
The average student will be able to complete the work of the General College in two
years, while superior students may finish the curriculum in a shorter time, and others may
find it necessary to remain in the General College for a longer period.
A program of general education is worked out for all students. In this program the
University recognizes that broad basic training is needed by all students. To this foundation
that has meaning and significance to the student, he may add the special training of the
colleges and professional schools of the Upper Division, or drop out of the University with
something definite and helpful as he begins his adult life as a citizen. The purposes of the
general College are as follows:

1. To offer an opportunity for general education and to provide the guidance
needed by all students. Thus the choice of professional work is postponed until
the student is better acquainted with his capacity and disposition to undertake
work that will be profitable to himself and society.
2. To broaden the base of education for students who are preparing for
advanced study in the colleges and professional schools of the Upper Division,
thereby avoiding the handicap of narrow specialization.
3. To satisfy the needs of those who have only a limited time to give to
college training, and consequently should concern themselves with general view-
points and major understandings, instead of with introductions to special subject
matter fields which they may never enter.
4. To provide for the constant adjustments required in higher general educa-
tion incident to the changing conditions of modern life. The subject matter of
the various courses and the methods of presentation are to be constantly varied
in order to awaken the interest of the student, to stimulate his intellectual
curiosity, to encourage independent study, and to cultivate the attitudes
necessary for enlightened citizenship.
5. Guidance. Every part of the General College program is designed to
guide students. It was felt that too much of the freshman and sophomore work
of former years had little meaning and significance to the vast majority.
The material studied was preparatory and foundational, and became meaningful
only when the student pursued additional courses in the junior and senior
years. The material of the comprehensive courses is selected and tested with
guidance as a primary function. While, of necessity, we must look forward to
distant goals, the General College is trying to present materials that are directly
related to life experiences and will immediately become a part of the student's
thinking and guide him in making correct 'next steps". Thus the whole
program-placement tests, progress reports, vocational aptitude tests, selected
material in the comprehensive courses, student conferences, provisions for su-
perior students, adjustment for individual differences, election privileges, and
comprehensive examinations-are all parts of a plan designed to guide students.
Thus guidance is not attempted at one office by one individual with a small
staff. The whole drive of the General College program is one of directing the
thinking of the student. While the necessary correlation and unification is
attempted at the General College Office, throughout the General College period






270 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

students consult upper division deans and department heads to discuss future
work. During the last month of each school year these informal conferences are
concluded by a scheduled formal conference, at which each student fills out a pre-
registration card for the coming year.


ADMISSIONS*

The University of Florida does not require any specific high school units for admission to
its General College. However, students must have certain skills and attainments in the four
major fields of high school study: namely, English, mathematics, science and social science.
The attainments now required for University admission are not guaranteed by the acquisition
of high school credits. On the other hand, the attainments are possible without specific high
school class attendance. Thus, while freedom is given to the high schools to organize a
program which offers the greatest good to the greatest number, it is expected that the
individual student will present a unified program.

FLORIDA STUDENTS

The following items will be considered in admitting students to the General College of the
University of Florida:
1. Graduation from high school.**
2. Consistency of the high school record of the student.
3. Achievement in high school.
4. Personal qualities.
5. Recommendation of high school principal.
6 Standing on Placement Tests.

NON-FLORIDA STUDENTS

In addition to the requirements listed for Florida students, non-Florida students are
required to file preliminary credentials satisfactory to the Board of University Examiners.
The Board then will determine the eligibility of such students to take the Placement Tests.
However, permission to come to Gainesville to take these tests does not guarantee admission
to the General College, and all such students will come to Gainesville at their own risk of
being refused admission if the results of the tests are not satisfactory.

SPECIAL STUDENTS

Special students may be admitted either to the General College or to the various colleges
of the University (except the College of Law, to which special students are never admitted)
only by approval of the Board of University Examiners. Applications for admission of these
students must include:
1. The filing of satisfactory preliminary credentials.
2. A statement as to the type of studies to be pursued.

*Expenses and fees will be found on pages 285 to 287.
**Graduation from high school is required, although no specific high school units are required. The
Board of University Examiners may in rare cases, when the principal of the high school the student has
attended recommends such action, permit an exceptional student, before graduation, to take the Placement
Tests; if the student passes these tests satisfactorily, he will be admitted to the General College.
Mature students, lacking a formal high school education, but possessing because of some other training
the necessary admission requirements, may petition the Board of University Examiners for permission to take
the Placement Tests and the College Aptitude Test; upon satisfactorily passing these tests, such students
will be admitted to the General College.






ADMISSIONS


3. Reason for desiring to take special courses.
4. Satisfactory evidence of ability to pursue these studies.

PREPARATION FOR UPPER DIVISION CURRICULA

Students who have definitely made a choice of the occupations or professions they will
follow and who expect to enter a certain curriculum of the Upper Division upon completion
of the General College work, may profit by following the suggestions given here.

MEDICINE AND DENTISTRY

Entering students who have definitely decided to study medicine or dentistry should notify
the Dean of the General College of this choice, in order that a program can be worked out
that will satisfy both the requirements of general education and those necessary to enter the
medical or dental schools. It is possible for exceptional students to complete the minimum
pre-medical requirements in two years. However, less than eight per cent of those admitted
to medical schools have less than three or four years of college preparation. To a large extent,
students admitted to a medical school with only two years of preparation have done their
pre-medical work in the University of which the Medical School is a part.

OTHER CURRICULA

Certain curricula of the Upper Division require a working knowledge of a foreign language.
Students contemplating entering such curricula could with profit begin this study in the high
school.
Students expecting to study engineering need a thorough training in mathematics. An
effort should be made by such students to obtain the broadest possible mathematical training
in the high school. These students should obtain, either in high school or by private arrange-
ment, or by correspondence study, knowledge of elementary mechanical drawing, so as to be
able to: (1) letter upper and lower case standard letters neatly and accurately; (2) trace
drawings neatly with India ink, using both ruling pens and compasses. The student should
obtain either in high school or in outside practice some knowledge of elementary woodwork-
ing, so that he will: (1) know the names and uses of all woodworking tools; (2) be able to
drive a nail straight; (3) be able to saw a straight line both with the crosscut and ripsaw;
(4) be able to square the end of a board.
Students who expect to study architecture or building construction should obtain a
thorough foundation in mathematics and the physical sciences.
For information concerning the prerequisites for admission to the colleges and professional
schools of the Upper Division, the prospective student should consult the Bulletin of Infor-
mation for the Upper Division. This will enable the student to make the proper pre-college
preparation for the curriculum of his choice.

ADMISSION OF ADVANCED STANDING STUDENTS

The Board of University Examiners will determine the advanced standing of students
entering from other colleges. In general, the policies of the Board of University Examiners
will be as follows:
1. All students must present training equivalent to the work of the General
College, and in some cases will be required to pass the prescribed compre-
hensive examinations.






272 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

2. Students with poor records from other institutions will not be admitted
to the University of Florida. Students whose average is below "C" should not
apply for admission to the University, and students whose average is only "C"
are not guaranteed admission.
3. The Board of University Examiners, in the case of transfer students with
high or superior records, may vary the requirements for admission to the colleges
and professional schools of the Upper Division to the best interest of the student.

GENERAL REGULATIONS

METHOD OF REGISTRATION

The requirements for admission are found in the first part of this bulletin. Registration
procedure will be outlined in detail in the program supplied the student at his first meeting
during Freshman Week.
No student is properly registered until all fees have been paid.
To drop a course from his schedule, to add a course, or to change a section, a student
should report to the Dean of the General College. Final dates for such changes will be found
in the University Calendar.
Students should notice carefully the registration dates listed in the University Calendar.
Late registration fees will be charged all students registering at any time after the regular
registration period.

ACADEMIC CREDITS ABOLISHED

The General College has dispensed with clock hours, class grades, and semester hours credit
as prerequisites to the completion of its curriculum.

PROGRESS REPORTS

Progress reports will be made by instructors during each semester to indicate the progress
the student appears to be making in his work. The student should understand that these
reports are only diagnostic in nature, and in no way are added to the Comprehensive Exam-
ination to determine the final standing in the course. The progress reports will also serve to
acquaint the parents and the Dean of the General College with the student's progress.
Progress tests in each course will be given frequently. The results of these tests, together with
other indications of progress, will form a progress profile designed to be a constant incentive
to both instructor and student.
The progress reports, for the above purpose, will indicate the student's progress as
"Satisfactory" or "Unsatisfactory" as judged on the basis of (1) class attendance, (2) standing
on tests, and (3) student's attitude. It is often necessary to schedule progress tests on
Saturday or during evenings.

ATTENDANCE
If any student accumulates absences or fails to do class work to the extent that further
enrollment in the class appears to be of little value to him and detrimental to the best interest
of the class, it shall be the duty of the instructor to warn such student in writing that further
absences or failure to do class work will cause him to be dropped from the course with a
failing grade. Where possible this warning will be delivered personally; otherwise, it will be
mailed to the student's last University address by the Registrar. Instructors shall immediate-
ly report all such warnings to the Course Chairman or Department Head.
Should any absences or failure to do class work be incurred after this warning, the student






PROGRAM OF STUDIES


will be dropped from the course and be given a failing grade. Should he be dropped from
more than one course his case will be considered by the Committee on Student Progress who
may rule that he be dropped from the University and his record marked "Dropped for Non-
Attendance" or "Dropped for Unsatisfactory Work" as the case may be.

FAILURE IN STUDIES

The Committee on Student Progress will consider the record of each student in the
General College at the end of each session, and will report to the Administrative Board of the
General College the names of those students whose further attendance at the University
appears to be of doubtful value. The students concerned will be called before the Committee
and the facts of each case will be thoroughly considered before final action is taken. Failure
to attend classes, to take progress tests, or to take the comprehensive examination at the end
of a course may be interpreted as evidence of unsatisfactory progress. If further enrollment
at the University appears to be of little value to a student, the Committee may advise the
parent to withdraw the student.

PROGRAM OF STUDIES

For all students who enter the University of Florida.

FIRST YEAR SECOND YEAR

C-1.-Man and the Social World C-5.-The Humanities
C-2.-Man and the Physical World C-6-Man and the Biological World

year and two the second year. For the remainder of his work the student elects additional
comprehensive courses or courses required by the colleges and professional schools of the
Upper Division (see pages 280 to 284). Comprehensive courses normally meet four times
a week.

The major provisions for individual differences of students are as follows:

C-2.-This course is elective for students of the superior group of
the entering class as determined by the Board of University
Examiners, if such students begin science programs which
include at least two physical science subjects. Other students,
with permission, may postpone C-2 until the second year and
substitute elective C-7 in its place.

*C-7, C-8 and C-9 must together amount to 8 or more hours a week, throughout the year. Three
laboratory hours will be counted as one hour. Any course described or listed in this Bulletin may be
substituted for C-7, C-8, and C-9 with certain exceptions as are stated in this Bulletin.






274 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

C-4.-This course is elective for students of the superior group of
the entering class.
C-6.-Students who are especially interested in, or contemplate fur-
ther work in Biology may, if their work by the end of the first
progress reports in December be clearly above the average of
the class, then elect the laboratory course Bly. 61, designed to
parallel and supplement the lectures and discussions of C-6.
A final standing in the upper half of C-6 and a satisfactory
completion of Bly. 61 are accepted as a first year course in
College Biology and a substitute for Bly. 101-102 when used as
a prerequisite for advanced courses in the Department of
Biology.

COURSES

Courses offered for General College students fall in two groups. The first group consists
of courses especially designed and integrated with the General College Program. The second
group consists of courses offered in the various departments, some of which are integrated
with the General College Program, and some of which are specialized courses required by one
or more of the colleges for admission to the Upper Division. (See pages 280 to 284.)

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATIONS

The comprehensive course examinations (of which the student must successfully pass
eight or more to complete the program of the General College) are administered by the
Board of University Examiners and are given in January, May, and August of each year.
A student must be familiar with the work of the various courses and be able to think in the
several fields in a comprehensive way in order to pass these examinations. Six hours time,
divided into equal periods, will be required for each examination covering a full year course.
Standings on the comprehensive examinations are issued by the Board of Examiners and are
not subject to change by any other agency.

APPLICATIONS FOR COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATIONS

General College students who are enrolled in a course at the time the examination is given
need not make application for it. General College students who are not enrolled in a course
at the time an examination is given and who wish to take the comprehensive examination
must apply in writing to the Board of Examiners for permission prior to the last date set for
filing such applications. Applications will not be accepted from students registered in the
colleges of the Upper Division. Before the application is accepted the applicant will be
required to furnish the Board of Examiners with proof that this privilege has not been used
to avoid the payment of usual University fees. Applications will be accepted only for those
examinations which are administered by the Board of Examiners. The Board of Examiners
is the only agency authorized to give General College students examinations by application.
Should a student fail a comprehensive course examination, he may qualify to repeat the
examination by repeating the course or by further independent study. Evidence of
additional preparation must be submitted to the Board of Examiners with the formal applica-
tion to repeat the examination.
GRADUATION
When a student has completed his program in the General College and has passed his
comprehensive examinations and met the other requirements of the General College cur-






PROGRAM OF STUDIES


riculum, he will be granted the Associate of Arts Certificate. Students who pass three-
fourths of the comprehensive examinations with the standing "Excellent" will, on graduation
from the General College, receive the Certificate of Associate of Arts, with High Honors.

MILITARY SCIENCE AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION

All students will be required to take Military Science, unless exempt because, of physical
disability, age, or for other reasons set forth in the University By-Laws. Exemptions will be
determined before registration, and only those students so exempt will be required to take
Physical Education. Either Military Science or Physical Education will be taken for two
years by all students except those exempt from both courses.

MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM LOADS

The average load for all students will be four comprehensive courses and Military Science
or Physical Education. Deviations may be permitted by the Dean of the General College.

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY

A student wishing to withdraw from the University during any semester or at the end
of the first semester should report to the Office of the Registrar and secure a blank to be
executed for this purpose. Failure to comply with this requirement makes a student liable
for dismissal for non-attendance or for failure in studies, and subject to payment of failure
fees when and if he re-enrolls in the University.

280 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE



ADMISSION TO THE UPPER DIVISION

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL STUDENTS

After the student has completed the work of the General College and received a certificate
of graduation, he may enter one of the colleges or professional schools of the Upper Division
by meeting the specific admission requirements of that college or school. A student remain-
ing in the General College to complete one or more specific requirements may in addition, with
the approval of the Dean of the College he expects to enter in the Upper Division, take work
which may count in the Upper Division.
The Board of University Examiners administers the admission requirements of the Upper
Division. Besides the certificate of graduation from the General College, the student must
be certified by the Board that he is qualified to pursue the work of the college or school he
wishes to enter.
In addition to the general requirements stated above, the various colleges and schools of
the Upper Division have specific requirements for entrance. These requirements are listed
below for the curricula of the several colleges and schools. Students in the General College
may prepare to meet these requirements by taking as electives the courses indicated under the
various curricula presented.

SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES

BACHELOR OF ARTS

Additional requirements for admission to the curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor
of Arts:
There are no specific requirements for admission to the curriculum leading to the degree
of Bachelor of Arts. However, it will be much easier to earn a major in the College of Arts
and Sciences if the student elects courses in the contemplated major fields as a part of his
General College program.
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
Additional requirements for admission to the curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor
of Science:
There are no specific requirements for admission to the curriculum leading to the degree
of Bachelor of Science. However, it is impossible to earn a major in four semesters in some
departments of the College of Arts and Sciences, and it is distinctly to the advantage of the
student to include as much as he can of the contemplated major field in his General College
program.
BACHELOR OF ARTS IN JOURNALISM
Additional requirements for admission to the curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor
of Arts in Journalism:
It is strongly recommended that Journalism 213, 214, 215, and 216 be taken for electives
C-7 and C-8 in the General College. Any elective may be taken for C-9. However, if they
are not so taken it will be possible to arrange for them in the program of studies in the College
of Arts and Sciences.






ADMISSION TO THE UPPER DIVISION


COMBINED ACADEMIC AND LAW CURRICULA

Additional requirements for admission to the Combined Academic and Law Curricula:
The College of Arts and Sciences offers three different curricula in combination with Law.
One of them leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, another to the degree of Bachelor of
Arts in Journalism, and the third to the degree of Bachelor of Science.
In order to complete one of these curricula in the shortest possible time, it is necessary that
a student select as electives in the General College courses which will form an integral part of
his major in the College of Arts and Sciences. For this purpose it is urged that before he
registers for any elective in the General College he confer with the head of the department
offering his contemplated major.

PRE-MEDICAL CURRICULUM

Additional requirements for admission to the Pre-Medical curriculum:
The requirements are the same as for admission to the Bachelor of Science curriculum.
Insofar as possible the student should elect as electives in the General College, sciences and
foreign language courses required for admission to the medical college of his choice.

Florida and non-Florida students.
A Florida student, if under twenty-one years of age, is one: (1) whose parents have
been residents of Florida for at least twelve consecutive months next preceding his registra-
tion; or (2) whose parents were residents of Florida at the time of their death, and who has
not acquired residence in another state; or (3) whose parents were not residents of Florida
at the time of their death but whose successor natural guardian has been a resident of Florida
for at least twelve consecutive months next preceding his registration.

of Florida (or were at the time of their death) and who has not acquired residence in another
state; or (2) who, while an adult, has been a resident of Florida for at least twelve consecu-

been a resident of Florida for at least twelve consecutive months next preceding her registra-
tion; or (4) is an alien who has taken out his first citizenship papers and who has been a
resident of Florida for at least twelve consecutive months next preceding his registration.
All students not able to qualify as Florida students are classified as non-Florida students.

tion in the University, and may not thereafter be changed by him unless, in the case of a
minor, his parents move to and become legal residents of this State, by maintaining such
residence for twelve consecutive months. If the status of a student changes from a non-
Florida student to a Florida student, his classification may be changed at the next registration
thereafter.
A fee of $10 will be charged all students registering incorrectly. In the case of non-Florida
students, this fee will be assessed in addition to the tuition. In the case of Florida students
who give an out of state address at the time of registration or any other time, this fee will
be charged unless the student files a written explanation acceptable to the Business Manager,
stating why the out of state address was given and giving proof that his legal residence is
Florida.

SELF-HELP


CAFETERIA

The University operates a cafeteria offering a wide selection of wholesome foods. All stu-
dents living on the campus are encouraged to take their meals there. The Cafeteria renders
a great service to students who live off the campus, because it has the tendency to hold down
prices for meals to a minimum in the majority of off-campus boarding houses. Meal tickets
in denominations of $5 and $15 may be purchased at the Business Manager's office or at the
Cafeteria Cigar Counter at a 5% discount.

ROOMING HOUSES

The administration of the University provides an inspection service and publishes a list
of approved rooming houses for students. Rental in these houses ranges from $5 to $15 per
month per student. In a number of instances, room and board may be secured in the same
house at rates from $25 to $40 per month. In case a student plans to live off the campus, he
is urged to secure information from the Office of the Dean of Students to avoid embarrass-
ment in dealing with landlords other than those of approved roomirg houses.

COOPERATIVE LIVING ORGANIZATION

The Cooperative Living Organization, organized and operated by students to furnish
economical living accommodations for its membership is located at 133 N. Washington Street.
The qualifications for membership are, maximum income $25 per month, scholastic ability,
and references of good character. In order to secure membership in the CLO students should
apply to the CLO manager at the above address.


SELF-HELP

In view of the fact that there are comparatively few positions on the campus and in the
City of Gainesville, it is strongly urged that no freshman come to the University with the
expectation of depending very largely upon his earnings during his first college year.
The Committee on Self-Help, of which the Dean of Students is chairman, undertakes to
award positions on the campus to deserving upperclassmen.
A few students are employed as laboratory assistants, office workers, waiters, and in
other capacities. Application for employment should be made to the Dean of Students.

REQUIREMENTS AND QUALIFICATIONS FOR STUDENT EMPLOYMENT

A. The student must be making an average of C or its equivalent.
B. The student must give evidence of need for the job.
C. Possession of a car will be evidence of lack of need unless explained on the basis of
necessity for the student's livelihood.
D. Preference will be given to those having experience.
E. No graduate students will be used except as graduate assistants in positions requiring
the training which the student has secured in college.
F. No student on probation of any kind will be given a position. If, while holding
one, he is placed on probation, he will be required to resign the position.
G. Due to scarcity of jobs, it is contrary to the policy of the University for students to
hold two University jobs whose aggregate salaries exceed $200 per year.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOAN FUNDS

The University of Florida is unfortunate in the paucity of the scholarships and loans
which are open to students. Generally, the scholarships and loans which are available are
administered directly by the donors. However, the Committee on Scholarships, of which
the Dean of Students is chairman, collects all information relative to vacancies, basis of
award, value, and other pertinent facts and supplies this information to interested students.
The Committee also collects information on applicants and supplies this information to the
donors. In some instances, the Committee has been given authority to make the awards
without consulting the donors.
While scholarship, as evidenced by academic attainment, is an important feature in mak-
ing awards, it is by no means the only consideration. The student's potential capacity to
profit by college training and to make reasonable returns to society are important con-
siderations in making all awards.
Unless otherwise specified, applications for the scholarships and loans listed below should
be addressed to the Chairman of the Committee on Scholarships and Loan Funds, University
of Florida.

SCHOLARSHIPS

County Agricultural Scholarships.-Provision has been made by a legislative act for a
scholarship from each county-to be offered and provided for at the discretion of the Board
of County Commissioners of each county. The recipient is to be selected by competitive ex-

dining hall and room in the dormitory. Whether such a scholarship has been provided for by
any county may be learned from the Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners, or the
County Agent of the county in question. If it is desired, questions for the examination will
be provided and papers graded by the University.
Vocational Rehabilitation Scholarships.-The Rehabilitation Section of the State De-
partment of Public Instruction provides limited assistance to persons who are physically
handicapped. Requirements for eligibility for this assistance are as follows: The applicant
must have a permanent major physical disability, he must be sixteen years old, he must have a

GENERAL EXTENSION DIVISION

The General Extension Division of the University of Florida offers educational oppor-
tunities and numerous services to persons who are removed from the campus.
The Division represents the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Law, Business
Administration, and the School of Pharmacy of the University, and the College of Arts
and Sciences and the Schools of Education and Music of the State College for Women.
The work is carried on through departments. Formal courses for college credit and
some high school work are offered through the Department of Correspondence Study.
Wherever a sufficient number of students may be enrolled, university classes are offered
by the Department of Extension Classes.
Short courses of informal instruction are offered to professional, business, trade and
civic groups and organizations in an effort to give them the latest information in their
respective fields of interest. The Department of Women's Activities offers information and
instruction on subjects of particular interest to groups of Florida women.
The Department of Auditory Instruction offers cultural and informational programs
through lectures and discussion for the benefit of schools and special groups. Training for
naturalization, citizenship schools and cooperation with the War Department in enrolling
young men for the Citizens' Military Training Camps, because of their educational value,
are some phases of the work of the Department of Citizenship Training.
Through the Departments of Visual Instruction and General Information and Service
the world of letters and arts and music is carried to thousands in more isolated communities
by means of plays, books, package libraries and art exhibits. A picture of the world and
its work is circulated in stereopticon slides and films furnished for instruction and enter-
tainment. The best in recorded music is provided for work in music appreciation and
culture.
These and the various service functions of the Division establish contacts which enable
the University to aid individuals, organizations and communities, and to contribute to adult
education.

SUMMER SESSION
The University Summer Session is an integral part of the University. During the sum-
mer, the General College, the College of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, the
College of Law, the College of Businss Administration, the College of Agriculture, and the
Graduate School operate, and the College of Engineering conducts certain field work.
Since women are admitted to the Summer Session, many professional courses for primary
and elementary school teachers are offered in addition to those usually given in the winter
session.

DIVISION OF ATHLETICS AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION
In September, 1933, the University of Florida joined twelve other southern institutions
in forming the Southeastern Conference. This conference represents colleges and universities
in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky.
The type of athletic program undertaken by the Department of Physical Education at
the University of Florida compares with that in leading universities. A two-year course
of required Physical Education is included in the curriculum of the Lower Division. Students
who are exempt from Military Science are required to take this work, which is designed
to present participation, training, and instructional opportunities in sports included in the
intramural program. This course may also be taken as an elective.






DIVISION OF MILITARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS


The second major sub-division of this Department is that in which are included inter-
collegiate athletics. These sports are divided into two groups, generally known as major
and as minor sports. In the major group are football, basketball, boxing, baseball, swim-
ming and track; and in the minor group, tennis, golf, and cross country. The equipment
includes two baseball diamonds, four athletic fields, six handball courts, two indoor basket-
ball courts, eight tennis courts, a large outdoor swimming pool, a concrete stadium with a
seating capacity of 23,000, and two quarter-mile running tracks, one providing permanent
seats for approximately 1,500.
The function of the Intramural Department is to encourage the entire student body to
participate in organized athletic sports and wholesome recreation. The Department pro-
vides facilities for such competition and recreation; organizes and promotes competition be-
tween students, groups, and individuals; and fosters a spirit of fair play and sportsmanship
among participants and spectators.
The program of intramural activities includes the following sports: golf, swimming,
horseshoes, touch football, basketball, boxing, wrestling, diamondball, tennis, handball, water
basketball, track, shuffle board, foul shooting, ping pong, badminton, cross country, and
Sigma Delta Psi (national athletic fraternity) events.
The proper utilization of leisure time through recreation and play is splendidly expressed
in this porgram. It is estimated that more than 2,500 students (about seventy per cent of
the student body) take part in some sport sponsored by the Department. There is a decided
trend toward the expansion of recreational facilities for a large group of students as opposed
to intense competition for a few.
The rules of the Southeastern Conference do not permit member institutions to employ
athletes or to pay students for their services on athletic teams. However, this does not
mean that a student is ineligible to received aid from his institution in the storm of scholar-
ships, loan funds, or compensation for student labor merely because he may be proficient
in athletics. Athletes in the University of Florida are eligible to all forms of assistance that
may be available to other students. As a rule, awards are made only to those who are unable
financially to attend the University without assistance and whose standards of conduct and
scholarship are worthy of consideration. Awards are usually inade in the form of board,
rent, books, and similar items rather than in the form of cash, and may be continued from
year to year throughout the college course to those students whose records prove satisfactory.
Administration of these funds is in the hands of the Committee on Scholarships. Further
information may be secured by writing to the Dean of Students, who is chairman of that
Committee.


DIVISION OF MILITARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS

The course in Military Science is required of all physically qualified General College
students except adult special students and students transferring from other universities or
colleges.
Students who complete the basic course and are selected by the Professor of Military
Science and Tactics and the President of the University may elect the advanced courses.
Students electing these courses must carry them to completion as a prerequisite to graduation.
Upon the completion of these courses, those students recommended by the Professor of Military
Science and Tactics and the President of the University will, upon their own application, be
offered a commission in the Officers Reserve Corps, United States Army. Students electing to
do advanced work in Military Science and Tactics must attend a summer camp, usually be-
tween their junior and senior years, established for this purpose by the United States Govern-






298 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

ment. The War Department pays all expenses for the camp including mileage, rations, medical
attendance, clothing, and laundry service, and in addition the pay of the seventh grade,
United States Army.


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA BAND

Students may enroll in the band under either of the two following plans:
A. A student may elect to substitute Band practice and drill for Military Science,
in which case he will register for Bd. 111-112 the first year and Bd. 211-212
the second. Completion of these two courses will satisfy the University require-
ment for basic Military Science but will not qualify the student for advanced
Military Science.
B. A student may elect to combine Band practice and drill with the study of Mili-
tary Science and Tactics, in which case he will register for proper basic course in
Military Science and attend theory classes in Military Science, combining
Military drill with band drill in accordance with the regulations of the Division
of Military Science and Tactics. Completion of the Basic course in Military
Science in this manner will qualify the student for advanced Military Science,
as well as satisfy the University requirements for Basic Military Science.
Students will not be permitted to earn more than eight hours (two years work) in Band,
nor more than a total of eight hours in Military Science and Band. Positively no credit will
be allowed for Band unless the student registers in the regular manner even though he partici-
pates in band work.

DIVISION OF MUSIC
The Division of Music offers opportunity for membership in three musical organizations:
The University Band, the Glee Club, and the Symphony Orchestra.
All University of Florida students who qualify are eligible for membership in any of these
organizations.
The Band performs at all football games within the State and makes at least one out
of State trip each season. The Band plays at military parades on the campus, gives a number
of concerts and broadcasts during the second semester, and performs at such public functions
as the Gasparilla Celebration, the Governor's Inauguration, etc.
The University of Florida Glee Club is composed of men enrolled in the University who
are interested in choral singing. The Glee Club makes several trips through the State,
particularly during the second semester. Members of the Glee Club are heard regularly each
week over the radio in a broadcast period known as the University Hour.
The University of Florida Symphony Orchestra affords an opportunity for the study and
performance of symphonic and classical music, makes a number of trips through the State
each season and gives a number of concerts and broadcasts on the campus.
Private lessons are offered by the members of the faculty of the Division of Music. These
lessons are arranged as follows:
1. Orchestra and Band instruments, Mr. Brown.
2. Voice, including radio broadcasting, Mr. DeBruyn.
3. Piano, Organ, Harmony and Conterpoint, Mr. Murphree.
Lesson periods are arranged at the convenience of the instructor and pupil. Instructors
may be consulted concerning lesson periods and rates.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LIBRARIES

The libraries of the University are the General Library, the Experiment Station Library,
the General Extension Division Library, the Law Library, and the P. K. Yonge Laboratory
School Library. The libraries contain approximately 140,000 books.
The General Library provides facilities for library work in the various courses offered by
the University and for research work in the different fields. It has two large reading rooms
which contain the Reserve Books, the General College Books, and the Reference Collection.
Its stacks are accessible to graduate students and faculty members.
The library has files of the principal American and foreign periodicals of general interest,
as well as periodicals of special interest in connection with the work of various schools and
colleges. About 1,300 periodicals are received. Being a depository of the United States
documents, it receives all the publications of the Government.
Among the resources of the library is a special collection of cataloged books and phamplets
which concern Florida and are written by Florida authors, and a large collection of state
journals received through the courtesy of Florida newspaper editors.
The Library is open from 7:45 A. M. to 10:30 P. M. every week day except Saturday,
when it closes at 1:30 P. M. During the regular session it is open on Sundays from 2:00
P. M. to 6:00 P. M.

THE FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM
The Florida State Museum was created by an act of the legislature in 1917 as a depart-
ment of the University of Florida.
The main objective of The Florida State Museum is to collect, preserve and interpret
data concerning the history of Florida, both natural and civil. In the natural history of
the state the endeavor is to collect the minerals and exhibit them in connection with their
manufactured products of economics and commerce; to collect the fossils of vegetable and
animal life showing the evolution of life through the geologic ages; to collect specimens
of recent vegetable and animal life illustrating the flora and fauna of the state in connection
with their economic and commercial enterprises. In the civil history of the state the
endeavor is to collect material and data of the works of mankind from the early aborigines
on up through the beginning of civilization to the present time; to maintain exhibits of
artifacts of early man, and exhibits of articles in the economic, industrial and social life
showing the advancement of civilization.
To maintain a department of archives for the preservation of the records of the state;
to maintain a library of publications pertinent to the general and diversified activities of
the museum; to maintain a gallery of art for the preservation and exhibit of portraits of
persons who have been responsible for making Florida a better place to live, and for the
exploitations of works of art for the edification of and as a social center for our citizens; to
maintain a department of museum extension among the schools and communities of the state;
to publish reports, bulletins, and monographs of the progress of the work, are some of the
activities for which The Florida State Museum strives, and for which the law provides.
In carrying on the general activities as above outlined The Florida State Museum now
has a total of 337,414 specimens catalogued at an inventoried value of $347,792.08, the
majority of which has been presented or provided by will. The museum is free to the public
every day in the year.
HEALTH SERVICE
Through the Students Health Service the University makes available to any student
physical examinations, health consultations, and medical attention. General service is






300 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

provided free of charge, but special fees are charged for services which are individual in
character, such as dentistry, X-rays, board and laundry in the Infirmary, special drugs and
serums, major surgery, special nurses, etc. No student, however, will be denied service
because of inability to pay these fees.
The University Infirmary and the offices of the Health Service are on the campus. The
Infirmary is open day and night for the admission of patients. The Resident Physician
lives at the Infirmary and his services are available at all hours in case of emergency. The
Dispensary in the Infirmary building is open from 7:30 to 9 A.M., from 12 noon to 1 P.M.
and from 4 to 7 P.M., during which time physicians are in attendance and may be consulted.
A nurse is constantly on duty from 7 A.M. to 9 P.M. for emergency treatment.
It is the aim of the Health Service not only to function as a Health Service and render
preventive measures, but to provide full hospital care in cases of illness. The infirmary is
rated as a Fully Approved Hospital by the Examining Board of the American College
of Surgeons.
The facilities of the Dispensary are such that any number of students can be given
attention in a day. The Dispensary is maintained to offer conferences with physicians, ex-
aminations, diagnosis, and treatment of minor injuries and illnesses which a student may
suffer. The student is encouraged to use this service freely in order that he may avoid more
serions illnesses by the lack of treatment or from improper treatment. In the Dispensary, a
modern, well equipped drug room furnishes drugs to the student without charge. A labora-
tory in connection with the Infirmary and Dispensary is in charge of a trained nurse-
technician, rendering efficient service in prompt diagnosis. The normal capacity of the
Infirmary, 45 beds, can be increased in emergencies. Ample provisions are made for the
isolation of communicable diseases. A completely equipped operating room is maintained
to provide facilities for major surgical operations. The Infirmary is equipped with a mobile
unit X-ray, which is used for the examination of fractures, but the equipment does not
provide sufficient service for an extensive diagnostic X-ray study of the intestinal tract, etc.
This service is made available to the students at actual cost of the materials used.
Students enrolling in the University for the first time are furnished by the Registrar's
Office a physical examination form which is to be completed by the family physician and
attached to Registration papers. On admission, the student is given a careful physical
examination by the University Physician. It is necessary that this physical examination by
the home physician be completed in order that parents may be aware of defects which should
be corrected prior to the student's entrance in the University. The correction of these
defects is necessary in order that he may be in proper physical condition to begin his college
work.
There are three principal phases of the activities of the University Health Service:
(1) personal attention, (2) sanitation, and (3) education.
1. Personal Attention.-This division is concerned with the physical examination of
students. A complete record of the physical condition of each student is made and filed
when he is admitted to the University. From this record can be determined, in large
measure, what procedure is essential to keep the student in the best physical condition
during his academic life. The following are some of the phases of the work in the personal
division:
a. Provision for maintaining the health of normal, physically sound students; cooperation
with the Department of Physical Education regarding physical exercise; education
concerning right living; safeguarding of environment.
b. Protection of the physically sound students from communicable diseases; early detec-
tion, isolation, and treatment of all cases of communicable diseases-tuberculosis,
diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles, typhoid fever, smallpox, mumps, etc.





STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLICATIONS


c. Treatment and professional care of all students who are ill or in need of medical advice
or treatment. For extended care by the Health Service it is necessary that the student
enter the Infirmary. Any student may be admitted to the Infirmary upon the recom-
mendation of the University Physician. To all patients in the Infirmary the staff will
furnish medical and nursing services.
d. Reconstruction and reclamation: correction of defects, advice, and treatment of all
abnormalities.
2. Sanitation.-The student's environment should be made as hygienic as possible.
Hence, this division concerns itself with the sanitary conditions both on and off the campus.
3. Education.-Every student in the University is made familiar wtih the fundamentals of
both personal and public hygiene. Through personal conferences education in hygiene and
right living is conducted.

VACCINATION

Prospective students are advised to be vaccinated against smallpox and to be inoculated
against typhoid fever. Unless a certificate is presented showing successful vaccination within
five years, students will be vaccinated against smallpox at the time of registration.


BUREAU OF VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE AND MENTAL
HYGIENE
A program of vocational guidance is carried on for the students through a series of tests,
interviews, and the application of scientific occupational information. The Bureau offers a
service to those encountering mental difficulties which interfere with their scholastic work.
Further information concerning these services may be obtained from the Bulletin of the
Bureau of Vocational Guidance and Mental Hygiene.

FLORIDA UNION
Florida Union serves a three-fold purpose: It is the official center of student activities
and presents a broad program of recreation and entertainment for the student body; it is
the campus home of faculty, students, alumni, and friends of the University; it aids in
establishing a cultural pattern which will distinguish Florida men. The building is open
daily from 8:00 A.M. until 11:00 P.M. The game room, reading room, lounge rooms, and
various meeting rooms are available to the student body. The offices of the Student Body,
the Y.M.C.A., Alumni Association, and the Publicity Department of the University are
located in the Florida Union. A soda-fountain and the bookstore in the annex offer attrac-
tive service at the most economical prices. A cordial welcome always awaits every student
at the Florida Union.


STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLICATIONS
Student Government.-Student government in the University of Florida is a cooperative
organization based on mutual confidence between the student body and the faculty. Con-
siderable authority has been granted the Student Body for the regulation and conduct of
student affairs. The criterion in granting authority to the Student Body has been the dis-
position of the students to accept responsibility commensurate with the authority granted
them. Generally speaking, the fields of student activity include regulation of extra-curricular
affairs and the administration of the Honor System.





302 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

Every enrolled student, having paid his activity fee, is a member of the Student Body
and has an equal vote in its government.
The University authorities feel that training in acceptance of responsibility for the conduct
of student affairs at the University is a valuable part of the educational growth of the
individual student. The Student Body is practically a body politic, occupying its franchise
under grant from the Board of Control and subject to its continued approval.
Student government is patterned on the state and national form of government, but
adapted to the local needs of the Student Body. Powers are distributed into the three
branches: (1) legislative, which is embodied in the Executive Council; (2) judicial, which
is embodied in the Honor Court with penal and civil jurisdiction of all judicial matters;
(3) executive, embodied in the President and shared with the Vice-President and the
Secretary-Treasurer of the Student Body. Members of all three branches are elected directly
by the Student Body once a year.
Student government enacts and enforces suitable laws, and promotes athletics, debating,
publications of the Student Body, entertainments of a general educational value, and such
other activities as the Student Body may adopt. The officers of the Student Body are the
President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer, members of the Honor Court, Athletic Coun-
cil, Executive Council, Lyceum Council, editors and business managers of student publications,
and student members of the Board of Student Publications.
Debating.-Practice in debating is open to all students through the programs of the
varsity and General College debate squads. This work, which is sponsored by the Debate
Club, is under the direction of the Department of Speech, and culminates in an extensive
schedule of intercollegiate debates.
Dramatics.-Any student has an opportunity to participate in several plays which are
presented each year by the Florida Players, a dramatic group under direction of the Depart-
ment of Speech.
Executive Council.-The Executive Council is composed of representatives elected from
the colleges on the campus and in general acts as administrator of Student Body affairs.
The Athletic Council and the Lyceum Council have jurisdiction over their respective fields.
Publications.-The Student Body publishes The Seminole, the year book; The Florida
Alligator, a weekly newspaper; The "F" Book, the student's guide; and The Florida Review,
the campus literary magazine.
Y. M. C. A.-The purpose of the Young Men's Christian Association is to provide a
medium through which the highest ideals of education and religion may be expressed in
terms of service. The program of the Association is planned to meet definite needs as they
become apparent. There is no membership fee. Any student may become a member by
subscribing to its purpose and contributing to its support. A secretary having extensive
experience with the problems of students'is available for counsel and help.
Social Fraternities.-Twenty-one national social fraternities have established chapters at
the University; most of them have already built chapter houses and the others have leased
homes. The general work of the fraternities is controlled by the Interfraternity Conference,
composed of two delegates from each of the national fraternities. The national fraternities at
Florida are Alpha Gamma Rho, Alpha Tau Omega,, Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Delta Chi,
Delta Tau Delta, Delta Sigma Phi, Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi
Beta Delta, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, Pi Kappa Alpha, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Alpha

HONOR SYSTEM

The Honor System.-One of the finest tributes to the character of the students at the
University of Florida is the fact that the Student Body is a self-governing group. The
details of the system by which this result is reached will be explained to all freshmen during
the first week of their enrollment in the University. However, each parent, as well as each
prospective student, is urged to read the following discussion of the Honor System, as this
phase of student government forms the keystone of the entire system.
In addition to permitting student legislation on questions of interest to the members of
the Student Body, execution of the laws passed, and the expenditure of student funds, the
governing system at the University gives to the students the privilege of disciplining them-
selves through the means of the Honor System. Inaugurated by some of our greatest educa-
tors, in higher institutions of the nation, and early adopted in some departments of the
University of Florida, the Honor System was finally established in the entire University in
1914, as the result of student initiative. This plan, having met with the approval of all
officials of the University, was given the sanction of the Board of Control, and student repre-
sentatives were selected by the students to administer the system.
Among the basic principles of an Honor System are the convictions that self-discipline
is the greatest builder of character, that responsibility is a prerequisite of self-respect, and
that these are essential to the highest type of education. Officials of the University and the
Board of Control feel that students in the University of Florida should be assumed to be
honest and worthy of trust, and they display this confidence by means of an Honor System.
The success of the System is dependent upon the honor of each individual member of the
student body in that: (1) he is duty-bound to abide by the principles of the Honor Code,

and (2) he is further pledged to report to the Honor Court such violations of the Code as
he may observe.
Many men coming to the University for the first time may feel hesitant about assuming this
responsibility, inasmuch as early school training has created feelings of antipathy toward one
who "tattle-tales" on a fellow-student. The theory of an Honor System adequately over-
comes this natural reaction, however, when it is realized that this system is a student institu-
tion itself, and not a faculty measure for student discipline, and that to be worthy of the
advantages of the Honor System each student must be strong enough to do his duty in this
regard. In this way the responsibility for each man's conduct is placed where it must
eventually rest-on himself.
The Honor Code of the Student Body is striking in its simplicity; yet it embodies the
fundamentals of sound character. Each man is pledged to refrain from:
(a) cheating, (b) stealing, (c) obtaining money or credit for worthless checks.
On the basis of this Code, students are extended all privileges conceived to be the basic
rights of men of Honor. There are no proctors or spies in the examination rooms, each
student feeling free to do his work, or to leave the room as occasion arises. Secondly, fruits
and supplies are placed openly on the campus, with the confidence that each man will pay for
any he may take. This system makes each man the keeper of his own conscience until he has
proven to his fellow-students that he no longer deserves the trust placed in him.
A breach of the System may be flagrant and serious, or it may be extenuated by cir-
cumstances. It may need only mild corrective measures to help the violator obtain a finer
conception of right and wrong; it may need strong measures. To enforce the System
equitably the students have established the Honor Court. The Court is composed of twelve
students and a chancellor all of whom are elected annually from the upper classes of the
various colleges on the campus. Any student convicted by this Court has the right of appeal
from its ruling to the Faculty Discipline Committee. A tribute to the efficiency of the Honor
Court in its existence on the Florida campus is realized in the fact that, since its establishment,
a surprisingly insignificant number of the Court's decisions have been altered upon appeal.
The penal purpose of the Honor Court should receive less stress, perhaps, than its
educational purpose, which is its most important function. The responsibility of acquainting
every member of the Student Body with the purpose, advantages, and principles of the
Honor System is placed upon members of the Court. In line with this work, members of
the Honor Court participate in the orientation program each year during Freshman Week.
In addition to a series of explanatory talks at that time, special chapel programs are conducted
by the Honor Court during the school year. Honor System talks are delivered in the high
schools of the State upon request and at regularly scheduled times each spring, and radio
programs are broadcast especially for the high schools from Station WRUF in Gainesville.
In this way the Honor Court has endeavored to fulfill its responsibility to the men who under-
take the problem of self-government and self-discipline at the University of Florida.
The parent of every prospective student should feel that it is his responsibility to stress the
paramount importance of honorable conduct on the part of his son while the latter is in
attendance at the University of Florida. Dishonest action brings sorrow both to parent and
to student.
Because University students have proved worthy of the trust and responsibility involved
in administering an Honor System, this feature of student government has become the
greatest tradition of the University of Florida. It must be remembered that inasmuch as it is
primarily a student responsibility, the future of the system rests with each new class of
students entering the University. The University faculty and authorities pledge their support
to the Honor System. Each student must support it, or, in failing to support it, contribute
to the loss of this tradition.
