NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

1. Applications for admission on regulation University blanks provided
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, 1937.
Applications will not be considered unless received by September 1, 1937.
These blanks may be secured from the principal of any Florida high
school or from the Registrar of the University of Florida. The prospec-
tive 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 may take these tests in the Spring Test-
ing Program in the high schools of the State, on August 13 at the Univer-
sity, or on September 13 at the University. Students are advised to take
the tests at the earliest possible testing period, so they may be advised as
to their eligibility for admission. 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 partici-
pate in the activities of Freshman Week, September 14-18.






ADMISSIONS


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
viewpoints 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
education incident to the changing conditions of modern life. The subject
matter of the various courses and the methods of presentation are to be con-
stantly 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.


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:


*Expenses and fees will be found on pages 334 to 338.





320 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

1. Graduation from high school. 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 Uni-
versity 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.
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.
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 prepara-





GUIDANCE


tion. 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 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 train-
ing in the high school. These students should obtain, either in high school or by private
arrangement, 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 woodworking, so that he will: (1) know the names and uses of all wood-
working 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 pro-
fessional schools of the Upper Division, the prospective student should consult the Bulletin
of Information 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.
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 col-
leges and professional schools of the Upper Division to the best interest of
the student.
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 founda-
tional, and became meaningful only when the student pursued additional courses in ihe
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






322 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

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 superior 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.
The necessary correlation and unification is attempted at the General College Office.


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 meet-
ing 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 Compre-
hensive Examination 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 (1) by
a percentage profile chart, and (2) by the instructor's rating of Excellent, Good. Average,
Fair, or Poor, and (3) by the student's estimate of his own progress.

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.






GENERAL REGULATIONS


Instructors shall immediately report all such warnings to the Course Chairman or Depart-
ment Head.
Should any absences or failure to do class work be incurred after this warning, the
student 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 Univer-
sity 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 pro-
gress. 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

All students admitted to the General College will follow a definite program of studies
for the first year, with certain elective subjects the second year.

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
C-3.-Reading, Speaking, and Writing C-7.-(Elective)*
C-41.-Man and His Thinking (one C-8.-(Elective) *
semester) C-9.-(Elective)*
C-42.-General Mathematics (one Y.-Military Science or Physical
semester) Education
X.-Military Science or Physical
Education

Except as indicated below, all students must take four comprehensive courses the first
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 330 to 333). 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,
*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.






324 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

with permission, may postpone C-2 until the second year and
substitute elective C-7 in its place.
C-4.-This course is elective for students of the superior group of
the entering class.
C-6.-This course is elective for students of the superior group of
the entering class who are beginning programs which include
two or more of the biological sciences. C-6 may be taken
during the first year instead of C-2, but in this case C-2 must
be taken the second year.

COURSES

Courses offered for General College students fall in two groups. The first group con-
sists 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
325 to 329).
COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATIONS

The student must successfully pass comprehensive course examinations-eight or more--
to complete the work of the General College. These examinations, administered by the
Board of University Examiners, will be given in January, May and August of each year.
General College students who are not enrolled in a course at the time the examination
is given and who wish to take any comprehensive examination, must apply in writing to
the Board of University Examiners for permission at least one month before the an-
nounced date for the examination. 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 parts, will be required for
each examination covering a full year course.
Should a student fail a comprehensive course examination, he may qualify to repeat
the examination by repeating the course, or by further study. Evidence of additional
preparation must be submitted to the Board of University Examiners with an application
in writing 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-
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 grad-
uation from the General College, receive the certificate of Associa:e 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.






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.


WOMEN STUDENTS

The University of Florida is an institution for men only, except during the summer
session. Under certain circumstances women students may be admitted to the professional
schools. For information concerning the admission of women students, the Registrar should
be consulted.

ADMISSION TO THE UPPER DIVISION

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL STUDENTS

After the student has completed the work of the General College and received a certifi-
cate 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
remaining 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.
The comprehensive examinations of the General College will cover the content of the
courses required for admission to any specific curriculum of the Upper Division selected
by the individual student.

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

New Dormitory.-The New Dormitory is of strictly fireproof construction. Most of the
rooms are arranged in suites of two rooms, a study and a bedroom, accommodating two
students. A limited number of single rooms and several suites for three students are
available. All rooms are equipped with lavatories, while adjacent bathrooms provide hot
and cold showers.
Thomas Hall.-Sections A, C, D, and E have been remodeled throughout, making avail-
able both single and double rooms. All rooms in these sections, with exception of double
rooms in Section D, are equipped with lavatories. In other sections the rooms are arranged
in suites, consisting of study and bedroom, accommodating three students. There are
several single rooms available in Section F.
Baths, with lavatories and hot and cold showers, are located on each floor of each section,
thus providing a bathroom for each four suites.
Buckman Hall.-Rooms in Buckman Hall are arranged in suites of study and bedrooms
accommodating three students. Baths, with lavatories and hot and cold showers, are located
on each floor of each section, thus providing bathroom facilities for each four suites.

338 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

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 embarrassment in dealing with landlords other than those
of approved rooming houses.

economical living accommodations for its membership is located at 541 S. Ninth Street.
The qualifications for membership are: maximum income $25 per month, scholastic ability,
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 Assistant 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, janitors,
and in other capacities. Application for employment should be made to the Dean of
Students or to the department in which the student desires employment.

REQUIREMENTS AND QUALIFICATIONS FOR STUDENT EMPLOYMENT

A. The student must be making an average of C.
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


SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOAN FUNDS

The University of Florida is unfortunate in the paucity of scholarships and loans which
are open to students. Generally, the scholarships and loans which are available are admin-
istered 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 Com-
mittee 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
making 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 is a large factor
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.
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
examination. The value of each scholarship is a sum sufficient to pay for board in the 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

344 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE


GENERAL EXTENSION DIVISION

The General Extension Division of the University of Florida offers educational oppor-
tunities and numerous service functions to those who are removed from the campus.
The Division represents the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Engineering, 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. The Extension Teaching Department
offers courses by correspondence study and in extension classes. Short courses, community
institutes, and conferences are held to give opportunity for discussion on problems con-
fronting groups or communities. The Department of Auditory Instruction offers cultural
programs, instruction, information, and entertainment by lectures and discussions for the
benefit of special groups, schools, and individuals.
Training for naturalization, citizenship schools, and cooperation with the War Depart-
ment 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 the back country through the
traveling libraries and art exhibits which are sent out. A picture of the world and its
work is circul ted in the slides and filmslides furnished for instruction and entertainment.
The best in recorded music is provided for work in music appreciation and for culture.
These and the various service functions of the Division establish contacts which enable
the University to aid individuals, organizations, and communities, and contribute to adult
education.

SUMMER SESSION

The University Summer Session is an integral part of the University. The General Col-
lege, the College of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Law, the
College of Business Administration, the College of Agriculture, and the Graduate School
operate during the summer.
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 new Southeastern Conference. This new conference represents colleges
and universities in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Ten-
nessee, 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. Stu-
dents 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.





GENERAL INFORMATION


The second major sub-division of this Department is that in which are included in er-
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, and
track; anI in the minor group, swimming, tennis, and golf. The equipment includes two
baseball diamonds, four athletic fields, six handball courts, two indoor basketball 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
between students, groups, and individuals; and fosters a spirit of fair play and sportsman-
ship 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, and Sigma Delta Psi
(national athletic fraternity) events.
The proper utilization of leisure time through recreation and play is splendidly expressed
in this program. It is estimated that more than 2,000 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 receive aid from his institution in the form 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 con-
duct and scholarship are worthy of consideration. Awards are usually made 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 gradua-
tion. 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





346 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

summer camp, usually between their junior and senior years, established for this purpose
by the United States Government. The War Department pays all expenses, including mile-
age, 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 take Band practice and drill for Military Science and Tactics.
BAND, 4 hours per week throughout first two years.
b. A student may elect to combine Band practice and drill with the study of Military
Science and Tactics.
{ BAND, 4 hours per week throughout first two years.
MILITARY, 3 hours per week throughout first two years.

Band work will be open to upperclassmen upon permission of the Director of the
University of Florida Band.
While both of the above outlined plans will satisfy for graduation the basic military
requirements of the General College, only the second one (b) will qualify the student to
enroll for advanced work with the R.O.T.C.


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 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;

348 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

In carrying on the general activities as above outlined The Florida State Museum now
has a total of 335,102 specimens catalogued at an inventoried value of $339,302.58, the
majority of which has been presented or provided by will. The museum is open to the

HEALTH SERVICE

Through the Students' Health Service the University makes available to any student
physical examinations, health consultations, and medical attention. General service is
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 ond 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 con-
sulted. 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-
amin tions, 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
serious 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 di-gnosis. 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





GENERAL INFORMATION


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; cooper-
ation with the Department of Physical Education regarding physical exercise; edu-
cation concerning right living; safeguarding of environment.
b. Protection of the physically sound students from communicable diseases; early
detection, isolation, and treatment of all cases of communicable diseases-tuber-
culosis, diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles, typhoid fever, smallpox, mumps, etc.
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 recommendation 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 with the fundamentals
of bo:h personal and public hygiene. Through personal conferences education in hygiene
and right living is conducted.

VACCINATION

student affairs. The criterion in granting authority to the Student Body has been the
disposition 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.
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 fran-
chise 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
Council, 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 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 aff irs.
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-two national social fraternities have established ch-pters at
the University; most of them have already built chapter houses and the others have leased

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 edu-
cators, 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.
In order to protect the honor of the student body from being sullied by the acts of a
few men who may violate the Honor Code, it becomes the duty of each member of the





352 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

Student Body not only to abide by the Honor Code but to report to the Honor Court any
violations 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 overcomes this natural reaction, however, when it is realized
that this system is a student institution 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. However, it is significant of
the thoroughness with which the Court works that since the establishment of the Honor
System in 1914, only one decision of the Honor Court has been altered on 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 acquaint-
ing 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 con-
ducted 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 undertake 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 at 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.
