WELCOME TO THE FRESHMEN


It is one of the privileges which the executive of an institution
of higher learning enjoys when given the opportunity to welcome different
groups to the campus. The most important of these groups is the incom-
ing freshman class. Each year, we have a new generation coming into
the family of University men.

This year, I have a peculiar satisfaction in welcoming the freshmen
because we are inaugurating a new plan for the instruction of all
freshmen by the opening of our General College. This College embodies
some of the latest and most progressive ideas in higher education. I
am sure that it eliminates many of the disadvantages of the traditional
college. In it, I am sure that students will find greater intellectual
satisfaction, as well as a broader experience as they lay the founda-
tion for future education. There will be some mistakes and some
wrinkles to be smoothed out. In these, we ask your forbearance.

I confidently believe that our new plan will bring more benefit to
a freshman than students have previously received by the end of the
sophomore year. You will find abundant advice and counsel and we hope
you will avail yourselves of it.

Hoping each and everyone a profitable residence in our University
community.

JOHN J. TIGERT
President of the University

** *** * **



To the incoming freshmen it is my duty and great pleasure to extend
on behalf of the Student Body a genuine welcome to our University.

Immediately upon your enrollment, it is our sincere wish that you
will become and ever remain a true Florida man. Your early acquaint-
ance with your fellow students and faculty members will aid you
materially in doing this.- Likewise, carrying on the traditions of
Florida as given you in the "F" Book will further help you in becoming
one of us.

Remember that, although your academic work is of primary importance,
a proper combination of both academic and extra-curricular work will
enable you to derive the most from your University career.

We hope that your pleasure in joining us is equal to ours in
welcoming you, and that your association with us and the University
will be successful and happy.

JACK BUTLER
President of the Student Body







GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

All men planning to enter the Freshman Class must be present for
the first session at 9:30 A.Y. on Monday, September 23, in the Auditorium.
Counselors and student leaders will be introduced to each group in this
meeting.

Be sure to read carefully the description of all activities for the
week.

Attendance will be checked at each meeting. Absences will be counted
as class cuts. The University authorities reserve the right to drop
from the rolls any student absent from any scheduled activity. A late
registration fee will be charged all students not present at the 9:30
o'clock meeting Monday morning.

The office of Dean Walter J. Iatherly of the General College, Room
107 Language Hall, handles all problems of curriculum guidance and ad-
justment. Students should go to this office with any question concern-
ing such problems.

The Office of the Dean of Students is in Room 105 Language Hall.
You will be welcome there at any time during your stay in the University.
This office exists for the purpose of helping college men find solutions
for difficult problems.

Don't hunt trouble. Endeavor to fit yourself into college life with
the least amount of friction. You will find your instructors really
desire to help you and are interested in your problems. Feel free to
ask your student leader or counselors questions about matters pertaining
to your schedule and courses.

ACTIVITIES

PERSONAL CONTACTS.--One of the primary purposes of Freshman Week is
to give you an opportunity to meet, outside the classroom, the various
faculty members under whom you are to work and the student body leaders
with whom you are to live. The various meetings scheduled will provide
for a large number of contacts. Your student leader will be glad,
however, to arrange a personal conference with any other faculty member
you would like to meet.

GENERAL MEETINGS.--The General Meetings held from eight-thirty to
nine-thirty each morning are very significant. Valuable information for
the entering freshmen will be given at each of these meetings by
selected faculty members. Students should carry a small notebook and
pencils at all times in order to jot down important bits of information
which will be given from time to time during the week.

REGISTRATION.--Ample time is being given for counsel and advice dur-
ing the registration period. Each student will have an opportunity to
meet personally a member of the administrative staff who will discuss
with him the various course requirements for the work which is to be
undertaken. Be sure to ask questions and get all necessary information
during registration.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION.--Physical examinations will be made in the
Infirmary. You will be given a thorough physical examination by com-
petent physicians. Make careful note of any physical defect pointed out
and follow remedial instructions given.

STUDENT ACTIVITY PERIOD.--The Student Activity Period is in charge
of outstanding student leaders of the student body who have proved
successful in University life. They will give you information on all
extra-curricular activities.








RECREATION.--The University swimming pool will be open each day
during Freshman Week; you are invited to use it during the daily
recreation period.

LIBRARY,--The Library is a very systematic as well as effeoient
organization. All freshmen should learn at once how to use it to the
best advantage.

ORGANIZATION PERIOD IN THE AUDITORIUM.--It is very important that
every man be present in the Auditorium at 9:30 A. M. on Monday,
September 23. At this time groups will be organized and student leaders
will be assigned. As a rule twenty-five men will be placed in each
group. Each student's group number is indicated on his registration
permit. Students coming late will be at a disadvantage, as they will
have to be put into groups already filled.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES.--A special assembly for freshmen is held once
each month for the purpose of acquainting the student with important
aspects ofUniversity life and conduct. At this time such topics as
the Honor System, University regulations, fraternities, et cetera, will
be discussed.

All freshmen are required to attend these assemblies, which are
scheduled at a time when there will be no conflicts with other classes.
The roll will be taken and absences will be treated as class absences.

COLLEGE NIGHT.--In order that the schedule of activities during
Freshman Week may not seem too heavy, one night of fun is planned. The
program for College Night is composed of music, songs, yells, and a
number of skits by University students. This program is prepared and
sponsored by the Blue Key Fraternity. Any member of the freshman class
who has a skit ready is invited to give it on College Night.

JUNIOR INTER-FRATERNITY CONFERENCE.--The Junior Inter-Fraternity
Conference is an organization comprised of representatives from the
pledge groups of the various national fraternities on the campus of the
University of Florida. The purpose of this organization is to promote
good will and friendship among the freshmen. Realizing the importance
of getting first-year students into close relationship early in the
year, this organization strives to establish an atmosphere of congeni-
ality among the freshmen.

During its first year on the campus, the Conference sponsored two
projects. A silver loving cup was awarded to the fraternity displaying
the most attractively decorated fraternity house at Homecoming. Besides
this, the ten most outstanding freshmen were selected on the basis of
their achievements in scholarship, athletics, and campus activities,
and were presented with certificates of recognition for their work. The
latter project is open to all first-year students and is well worth any
effort expended.

THE HO OR SYSTEM '


The student body of the University of Florida, into vhich you are
now being introduced, prides itself that it has oeen a self-governing
body since 1914. Since its instigation it has continuously been a
group which has played a very important part in the development of
student government in the institutions of the South. Besides the legis-
lative and executive functions of its set-up, which will be explained
to you elsewhere, the judicial branch of the student government merits
close study and understanding, for its functions are vital not only as
a praiseworthy attribute of the University, but also as a personal
responsibility to every student. The Honor System is indeed of utmost
importance to every student, and in turn the attitude of every student
is a factor in its success or failure.

Under the Honor System at the University of Florida, each student
is placed upon his individual integrity. The premium set upon honesty
is so high that a deviation from it brings the penalty of an almost
ineradicable blemish to the moral reputation of an offender. Proof of
cheating must be definite, but once laid will bring down upon the
culprit not only scholastic penalty but the inevitable scorn of his
fellow students.

The Honor Code 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.

One new class at the University, uninformed and lacking enthusiasm
for student government and the Honor System, may destroy the efforts
of hundreds of students and faculty members who have worked to develop
it. No student who enrolls here fails to have a marked effect upon the
Honor System, building or destroying it according to his inclination.
Hearty support is encouraged; honest opposition and constructive
criticism are not denied a hearing. One element, indifference, must be
recognized as the deadliest opponent of the System.

Throughout your residence at the University of Florida, you will
hear of the Honor System and will be expected to contribute to its
progress and development as a Florida tradition. When you are away from
the University, people with whom you come in contact will expect you to
understand and intelligently explain the Honor System to them. To
acquaint yourselves with the details of the System you should read the
"F" Book, in which you will find the Student Body Constitution, which
outlines the organization and procedure of the Honor System, the Honor
Code, and the Honor Court.

The Honor System at the University of Florida will always be worthy
of the student, so long as he remains a "Florida" man. You should under-
take at once the problem of governing yourselves as members of the
Student Body, with utmost confidence in the principles back of the
governmental system, a system which has been constantly improved through-
out the more than twenty years since its establishment.

Every student should realize that, whether he is destined to become
President of the Student Body, Chancellor of the Honor Court, an
officer in some other capacity in the Student Body, or an active
member of the group, he can be a true "Florida" man only through a
desire to understand and fit into the system in which he is working.
