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 alike. On 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:
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 knows better 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 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*

GENERAL STATEMENT

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
English and mathematics and a certain level of general ability, in order to pursue with
profit the work that will be offered in the General College. As a guide to high school
teachers and students a statement of the requisite attainments in English and mathematics
is given on pages 204 to 209 of this bulletin.
Since specified high school credits or units are no longer required for admission to the
University, the high schools are free to teach those subjects which offer the greatest good
for the greatest number. This is a most significant help to the many small high schools
of the State. 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.

176 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

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. 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,
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

Those pre-college 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 sug-
gestions given here.
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.





ADMISSIONS


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
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 ele-
mentary woodworking, 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 expecting to pursue architecture should obtain a thorough foundation in
mathematics, and begin the study of drawing as early as possible.
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
During the 1936-37 session students with 45 acceptable semester hours credit of
advanced standing may be admitted to one of the colleges of the University. Students
who cannot meet these standards will be admitted to the General College, provided they
meet the other standards for admission, as prescribed by the Board of University Examiners.
After a student has completed his first year in the General College the Board will review
his case and make such adjustments as may be necessary.
Beginning with the 1937 Summer Session all students admitted to the colleges will be
required to meet the requirements for admission to those colleges as provided by the
new plan.
The manner in which students transferring from other colleges to the University of
Florida will meet these requirements will be determined by the Board of University Exam-
iners after due consideration of the training of the student before application for admission
to the University of Florida. In general, the policies of the Board of University Examiners
will be as follows:
1. The Board of University Examiners will always bear in mind the aims
of the curriculum of the General College. All students must present training
equivalent to the work of the General College, and in some cases will be re-
quired to pass the prescribed comprehensive examinations.
2. Student 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

A complete program of guidance to help the student in the selection of his college and
life work is an integral part of the General College plan. Various agencies will aid the
student with his problems.

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 Bulletin of 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 an indication of the progress he is making, and do not guarantee that lie
will or will not pass the comprehensive examinations. The progress reports will also serve
to acquaint the parents and the dean of the General College with the student's progress.
The progress reports, for the purpose indicated above, will show the student's progress
by use of the words Excellent, Good, Average, Fair, and Poor, in order of excellence.

ATTENDANCE AND PROGRESS
Instructors will keep a record of the attendance of all students. In case a student's
progress is unsatisfactory, a detailed report of attendance will be made to the dean of
the General College. The student's program will be adjusted and his parents notified.
If, after this warning, progress is still unsatisfactory, the Committee on Student Progress
will recommend to the Administrative Board whether the student should be permitted to
remain in the University.
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 whom it recommends to be dropped from
the University. Failure to take the comprehensive examination at the end of a course may
be interpreted as evidence of unsatisfactory progress. The Committee will recommend this
action for those students whose records indicate that further attendance would be of no
benefit to them. A date will be set for a hearing of such cases, and the student concerned
may appear before the Committee at this time if he so desires.

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 May 28-June 6, and August 31-September








GENERAL REGULATIONS


5, 1936. Subsequent examination dates will be announced later. 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 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
to repeat the examination.

GRADUATION

When a student has mastered his program in the General College and has passed the
comprehensive examinations and met the other requirements of the General College curri-
culum, 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 Distinction.

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 maximum load for all students will be four comprehensive courses and Military
Science or Physical Education. A smaller load 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. Should a student fail to do this, he will be liable for dismissal
for non-attendance or for failure in studies.

ROOM AND BOARD

DORMITORIES
The University operates three dormitories, the New Dormitory, Thomas Hall, and Buck-
man Hall, together accommodating about five hundred students. It is recommended that
freshmen room in one of the dormitories for at least the first year. Accordingly, preference
is given freshmen applying for rooms in the dormitories.
Rooms in the dormitories are partially furnished. Students must provide their own
bedding, towels, and toilet articles. Janitor and maid service is provided. Student monitors,
of whom the president of the student body is head monitor, supervise the conduct of students
in the dormitories. Students are not permitted to cook in the dormitories.
All dormitory rooms are furnished with beds, chifforobes, study tables, and chairs.
Additional easy chairs may be secured at a rental charge of $1 per semester. Different accom-
modations are provided in the three dormitories.
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 C, D, and E have been remodeled throughout, making available
both single and double rooms. All rooms in these sections are equipped with lavatories.
In other sections the rooms are arranged in suites, consisting of study and bedroom, accom-
modating three students. Some rooms accommodate four students, and a few single rooms
are available.
Baths, with lavatories and hot and cold showers, are located on each floor of each section,
thus providing a bathroom for each four rooms.
Buckman Hall.-Rooms in Buckman Hall are arranged in suites of study and bedrooms
accommodating three students. Some suites accommodate four students. Baths, with lava-
tories and hot and cold showers, are located on each floor of each section, thus providing
bathroom facilities for each four suites.
Room Rent.-Rooms in the dormitories are rented to students at the following rates:


*Non-Florida students are charFed $100 tuition per year in addition,

Applications.-Applications should be made as early as possible, since accommodations
in the dormitories are limited to five hundred students. Applications must be accompanied
by the room reservation fee of $10. If a room has been assigned, no refund will be made
later than September 10. Students not assigned a room will be given a refund upon request.
Students signing contracts and being assigned rooms will not be granted a refund if they
withdraw from the dormitories during the period stipulated in the contract. Contracts for
dormitory rooms are for the scholastic year, and in the absence of exceedingly important
reasons, no student will be given permission to vacate a room during this time unless he
transfers his contract to some student not living on the campus.
Keys for dormitory rooms may be secured by student occupants from the Head Janitor
at the New Dormitory on presentation of a signed receipt secured by payment of a Room
Reservation Deposit.

ROOMING HOUSES

Board and rooms in off-campus boarding houses and private homes may be procured at
rates of $25 to $40 per student per month. Such houses are inspected periodically. Students
will be assisted in securing comfortable living quarters by the Assistant Dean of Students.
For further information, inquiry should be made of the Dean of Students.

UNIVERSITY CAFETERIA

For the past several years the University has operated a cafeteria with modified service.
This service will be changed to a strictly cafeteria style with coupon tickets having a mone-
tary value instead of the present meal value. All articles of food will be labeled according
to value. Coupon books will be sold at a discount sufficient to warrant their purchase
rather than paying cash for individual meals.
The University will also endeavor to offer a family style of service in connection with
the cafeteria for those who prefer a more home-like atmosphere. Meals will be similar to
those in the cafeteria but regular menus will be followed instead of individual selections.
The price per month will be in keeping with the University's policy in rendering its service
from this department at actual cost.
With the completion of the new kitchen-annex, modern equipment will be installed and
the service rendered will be as complete and up-to-date as that found in any school cafeteria
in the South.

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.





SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOAN FUNDS


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 Stu-
dents or to the department in which the student desires employment.


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 scholastic 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
County Agent of the county in question. Questions for the examination are provided and
papers graded by the University if desired.
Vocational Rehabilitation Scholarships.-The Department of Vocational Rehabilitation
is willing to aid any citizen of Florida who can give evidence of being prepared to enter
college, and who gives promise of being a successful student, provided that he has sustained,
by reason of physical impairment, a vocational handicap; and provided the course which he
selects can be reasonably expected to fit him to earn a livelihood. The sum spent on
recipients of this fund at the University of Florida during the present year will amount to
approximately one hundred dollars per student. Inquiries for these scholarships should be
addressed to Mr. Claude M. Andrews, State Supervisor of Vocational Rehabilitation, Talla-
hassee, Florida.
Rotary Loan Fund.-The Rotarians of Florida have set aside a considerable sum of
money to be used in making loans to worthy boys who would not otherwise be able to attend
college. The maximum loan is $150 per year. These loans are not available to freshmen.

196 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL COLLEGE


GENERAL EXTENSION DIVISION
The General Extension Division of the University of Florida offers educational oppor-
tunities to those who are removed from the campus, and numerous service functions.
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 circulated 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. 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.
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, and
track; and in the minor group, swimming, tennis, and golf. The equipment includes two
baseball diamonds, four athletic fields, six handball courts, two indoor basketball courts,





DIVISION OF MILITARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS


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, diamond ball, 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 to 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 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.
An advanced course in summer camp is compulsory, usually between the junior and senior
years. The War Department pays all expenses, including mileage, rations, medical attend-
ance, clothing, and laundry service, and in addition the pay of the seventh grade, United
States Army.

DIVISION OF MUSIC
The Division of Music offers opportunity for membership in three musical organizations:
The Military Band, the Orchestra, and the Glee Club.





198 BULLETIN OF INFORMATION FOiR THE GENERAL COLLEGE

The Band is made up in part of students in the freshman and sophomore years who
take military training. The Band frequently plays at athletic contests and takes several
trips a year.
The Orchestra plays at certain assemblies.
The Glee Club makes several trips a year throughout the state.
Opportunities are afforded qualified students to broadcast as soloists, instrumentally or
vocally, over radio station WRUF.
Private lessons in violin, orchestra instruments, band instruments, harmony, voice, organ,
and piano may be arranged. Tuition will be required of all students taking private lessons.

LIBRARY
The University Library has a central location on the campus. Its two large reading
rooms offer a quiet place for study. They contain volumes for recreational and serious
reading to which the student has free access.
In the reserve reading room are located the reserve books for the Upper Division and
the collection for the General College. In the reference room are the dictionaries, enc) 'lo-
pedias, general reference works, and current periodicals. The main collection of books is
shelved in stacks adjoining this room. A trained staff is employed to assist the student to
get the best use of the library's resources.

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 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 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, exam-
inations, 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 diagnosis. The normal capacity of the
Infirmary, 45 beds, in emergencies can be increased. 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





BUREAU OF VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE AND MENTAL HYGIENE


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, for 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; 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 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.

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
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 sti:dent. 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, 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 freshman 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 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; and The "F" Book, the student's guide. The Florida Review
(the campus literary magazine) is published by its staff without student funds.
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 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,


















STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLICATIONS


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
Epsilon, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Tau Epsilon Phi, Theta Chi, and Theta
Kappa Nu. There is one state-organized fraternity on the campus, Pi Delta Sigma.
Honor Societies and Fraternities.-Various honor societies and fraternities have been
established at Florida. Phi Kappa Phi elects annually from the highest ten per cent,
scholastically, of the Senior Class. Blue Key is an honor group electing men to membership
on the basis of leadership and participation in campus activities.
Other honorary fraternities are Alpha Kappa Psi, professional fraternity; Alpha
Zeta, agricultural; Beta Gamma Sigma, honorary commerce fraternity; Delta Epsilon, local
pre-medical; Gamma Sigma Epsilon, chemical; Gargoyle, architectural; Kappa Delta Pi,
educational; Kappa Gamma Delta, aeronautical; Kappa Phi Kappa, professional educa-
tional; Phi Alpha Delta and Phi Delta Phi, legal; Phi Sigma, biological; Pi Delta Epsilon

social science; Sabres, military; Sigma Delta Psi, athletic; Sigma Tau, engineering; Tau
Kappa Alpha, forensic; Phi Eta Sigma, freshman scholastic; Rho Chi, pharmacy; Kappa
Kappa Psi, honorary band; Thyrsus, horticultural.
Other professional fraternities and clubs are: Agricultural Club; Alpha Tau Alpha,
educational fraternity for teachers of agriculture; Student Branch of the American Institute
of Electrical Engineers; Student Branch, American Pharmaceutical Association; Student
Chapter of the American Society of Chemical Engineers; Student Branch of the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers; Benton Engineering Society; Commerce Club; Fourth
Estate Club, journalistic society; Leigh Chemical Society; Mathematics Colloquium; Mortar
and Pestle; Order of the Palms, honorary cultural fraternity; Peabody Club, education club;

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 implicit trust, and they display this confidence through the privilege
of an Honor System.
In order to protect against the character deficiencies of a few men who may violate the
Honor Code, it becomes the duty of each member of the 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) passing 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 and punish occasional infractions in every case, the students have established
the Honor Court. The Court is composed of twelve students and a chancellor elected
annually from the upper classes of the various colleges on the campus. Their jurisdiction
of all violations of the Honor Code is f.-al, but with the privilege of appeal by a student


















HONOR SYSTEM


to the Faculty Discipline Committee, an appeal both as to procedure and as to the merits
of the case. It is significant of the care with which the Court works that since the estab-
lishment 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 to parent and
student alike.
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 who enter 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,
contributes to the loss of this tradition.
