1. Credentials should be submitted as
soon as possible after the close of the spring
term, and in no case later than September
1, 1933.
2. Students who do not observe this regu-
lation must expect to undergo the incon-
venience of delay in being notified of their
status. This may lead to embarrassing re-
sults in the event the candidate in question
is not qualified for admission, as the time for
removing deficiencies is thereby curtailed.
3. Credits must be sent directly to the
Registrar, University of Florida, by the
proper official at the school last attended.
Credits received otherwise will have to be re-
turned for verification, thus causing delay
and inconvenience to the candidate in ques-




The high school graduate is confronted with a problem worthy of serious
consideration when he chooses a university education from among the many
opportunities offered for further training. University work is very different
from high school work. It deals with a higher order of studies and demands
constant advancement to more difficult studies, which require intellectual
growth and expansion. University work is conducted with a view of developing
initiative, independent judgment, and responsibility in its students for the rea-
sons that the courses offered require these qualities and that the students are
just becoming men and must assume the duties and obligations of men. Before
the high school graduate elects a university education in preference to other
types of training such as vocational and trade schools of the better sort, normal
schools and teachers colleges, and extension and correspondence courses, he
should carefully consider whether he is willing to expend the effort and assume
the responsibilities required of a university student, and whether he has the
abilities necessary for making the best use of the opportunities offered by a
The first choice which the student must make is that between a long period
of studies and some immediate employment such as a mechanical trade, buying
and selling, or clerical work, which are preceded perhaps by a shorter period of
special training. As the boy approaches the period of responsible manhood,
the kind of training in final preparation for life may often be clearly indicated
by the character of his high school work.
Generally speaking, those who like their high school studies are more likely
to succeed in university courses. Of those who stand in the lowest fourth of
their high school classes, very few are successful in university work. Most of
these would do well to consider other types of training for a vocation in which
they may be successful.
About eighty per cent of those who stand in the first fourth of their high
school classes make satisfactory records in the university. It is very unfortu-
nate for those young people who have shown their aptitude for higher studies
to be drawn into employment immediately after high school when most of them
are capable of preparing for and assuming positions of responsibility and honor
in industrial and social life. Given good health and the power of application,
those who like their high school studies and stand high in them should make
every effort to secure college training.
The student who believes himself equipped for a university education is
faced with a further problem. Which of the seven colleges of the University
should he enter, and what type of course should he pursue? The wise student
will make his decision after an inventory of his interests and abilities, and will
avoid a choice that does not open to him opportunities to use to the fullest his
abilities. The Deans of the various colleges of the University are at all times
glad to be of assistance to the student in making his choice. It is the purpose
of this bulletin to furnish information which may be helpful.



The University recognizes the need of giving its newly entering students an
introduction to their work and to university life, which is new and strange to
them. Accordingly, freshmen are required to come to the University for one
week before classes begin, for a period of adjustment known as Freshman
Week. This period, from September llth to September 16th, inclusive, will be
used by the freshman for the following duties:
1. Making his living arrangements.
2. Registration and paying his fees.
3. Physical examinations.
4. Psychological tests.
5. Other tests or examinations which will enable the faculty to place him
in the classes for which he is best fitted.
6. Hearing lectures on such subjects as the use of the Library and how to
7. Making visits to acquaint himself with the University Library, scientific
laboratories, and other points of interest in connection with his choice
of studies and future occupations.
8. Special exercises intended to acquaint him with the peculiar conditions
or requirements of the college which he enters.
9. Musical and social entertainments in the evenings arranged with the
cooperation of the Student Council and the various religious bodies.
10. Meeting with student government bodies in order to understand their
During the process of registration, faculty advisers talk with all students,
helping them to make the best selection of studies.
A committee on educational guidance maintains an office for conference with
freshmen regarding their general vocational and educational problems.
Administrative officers, faculty, student government councils, upper-class
students, and organizations for religious work all cooperate to make Freshman
Week a period during which the freshmen find themselves, learn how to go
about their university work, and how to profit by the opportunities for recreation
and other activities in addition to their studies.

The College of Agriculture provides opportunities for gaining technical
knowledge and training in the art and science of agriculture in order to enable
graduates to become leaders in agricultural education or effective producing
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.-
The student may major in Agricultural Education or in any one of the follow-
ing departments: Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy,
Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Agricultural Chemistry, Entomology and
Plant Pathology, and Horticulture. By the beginning of his junior year the
student must have selected his major, in which he must take not less than
fifteen nor more than thirty hours.
The Short Courses.-Students 18 years old or over, who desire more knowl-
edge in agriculture either along general lines or in some special field such as
dairying, poultry husbandry, fruit growing, etc., may enter at the beginning
of either the first or second semester, and select from a list of subjects such
as they think will be of greatest value to them.
Those having only a knowledge of common school branches should select
first the subjects numbered below 100. Those with high school or college
training may select those marked above 100.
Each semester is, as nearly as possible, complete in itself; a student may,
therefore, attend but one semester a year and continue doing so until four
semesters have been completed.
The Agricultural Experiment Station.-The Agricultural Experiment Station,
including its branch stations and field laboratories, constitutes the research
division of the College of Agriculture. A Congressional act, known as the
Hatch Act of 1882, provided for the establishment of agricultural experiment
stations at each land-grant college, and the Florida Station was established
in 1887. Its purpose is to acquire and diffuse agricultural knowledge.
The Station is supported by both Federal and State appropriations. Such
appropriations must be used for acquiring new and important knowledge in
regard to crops, soils and livestock and for research in agriculture and home
economics. No funds can be expended for teaching purposes or fcr extension
work, and only a very small part of the Federal funds may be used for buildings
or repairs.
The Dean of the College of Agriculture is also Director of the Experiment
Station. The organization of the Station's work, in so far as Federal funds
are concerned, must comply with Federal law and is under the immediate
supervision of the Office of Experiment Stations of the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture. Washington, D. C.


Information acquired by the Station is immediately available to the Teaching
and Extension Divisions of the College and is also published in bulletin form
for free distribution.
Agricultural Extension Work.-The cooperative Agricultural Extension Serv-
ice provides for instruction and practical demonstration in agriculture and
home economics to persons not attending or resident in the college.
Agricultural extension work is conducted in accordance with the terms of
the Smith-Lever, Capper-Ketcham, and supplementary acts of Congress. These
acts provide that agricultural extension work in each state shall be conducted
in such a manner as shall be mutually agreed upon by the Secretary of Agri-
culture, United States Department of Agriculture, and the state colleges of
the respective states. The acts provide for annual Congressional appropriations,
and require that each state provide additional funds as offset.
Extension agents conduct demonstration work in agriculture and home eco-
nomics in counties under a cooperative agreement with the county board
whereby in each county where extension agents are employed, the county pays
a pro rata part of the agents' salaries and expenses.
The program for extension work provides for eighteen active projects as
follows: administrative, publications, county agents, boys' club work, home
demonstration work, home improvement, nutrition, foods and marketing, dairy
husbandry, poultry husbandry, animal husbandry, agricultural economics, ex-
tension schools, citrus culture, farm and home makers' clubs for negroes,
agronomy, rodent control, Florida National Egg Laying Contest.
The supervisory agents for home demonstration work are located at the
Florida State College for Women, and for negro extension at the Florida
A. & M. College for Negroes, Tallahassee, Florida.
The state is divided into three districts. Each district has a supervisor for
men's and boys' work, and a supervisor for women's and girls' work. For the
direction of negro work there is one district supervisor for men's work, and one
district supervisor for women's work.
Fourteen specialists are employed to assist the State extension programs.
The Florida National Egg Laying Contest is maintained at Chipley, Florida,
by a state appropriation. It is under the direction of the Agricultural Ex-
tension Service. Housing facilities for one hundred pens of ten birds each are

The School of Architecture and Allied Arts offers three four-year courses,
one leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Architecture, one to the
degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts, and one leading to the degree Bachelor of Com-
mercial Art. Special courses which do not lead to a degree are also offered,
under certain circumstances, for mature students who are adequately prepared.
The Curriculum in Architecture has been devised to meet the needs of those


who desire to become general practitioners or architectural designers, draftsmen,
building inspectors, contractors or structural designers, etc.
The curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts is devised
to prepare students by means of sound training in drawing, composition and
design, and in the use of color, for such fields of endeavor as advertising
design, illustration, mural and portrait painting.
The curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Art is
offered in recognition of the demands of industry for designers of all types
where beauty is a recognized asset.

The curricula offered in the College of Arts and Sciences are designed to
give the student a broad, basic knowledge of the humanities, the social sciences,
and the physical and biological sciences. Opportunity is provided for con-
centration and the development of special techniques.
The course of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts Degree.-This is a four-
year course in which the humanities and social sciences are emphasized. The
study of foreign language is given some prominence, both ancient and modern
languages being offered. College English, foreign language, and mathematics
are required of every student electing this course, and to insure some under-
standing of scientific fact and method, every student is required to study a
basic year course in one of the natural sciences, in addition to which he may
elect a limited amount of work in natural science if he so desires.
The course of study leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree.-Students
who are interested primarily in the sciences may hope to gain a thorough
introduction to the natural sciences and a working grasp of scientific methods
by pursuing this four-year curriculum. Each student must select one science,
in which he is expected to gain a mastery. A limited amount of foreign-
language study is required in order that the student may have a reading knowl-
edge of scientific writings from other countries. The candidate for this degree
is expected also to acquire breadth of viewpoint and training by devoting some
time to the study of mathematics, English, and kindred subjects.
The combined Academic and Law Course.-Students of superior ability may
meet the requirement for admission to the College of Law by pursuing the
combined academic law course. In this course a fixed amount of law credit
may be substituted for free electives in either the A. B. course or the B. S.
course. Under this arrangement the student may earn one of the above degrees,
together with a degree in law, by three years of intensive study in the College
of Arts and Sciences, followed by three years of study in the College of Law.
The bachelor's degree in arts or sciences will not be conferred until the candidate
has satisfied the requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, and until
he has satisfactorily completed one full year in the College of Law.
The Pre-Medical Course.-A three-year pre-medical course is offered to meet
the requirements of some medical schools. Students wishing to attend medical
schools requiring more than three years of pre-medical training can meet the
requirement by taking the three-year pre-medical course here described, fol-
lowing which they can be registered as B.S. students. Emphasis is placed on
a good foundation in biology and physics, while special emphasis is given to
the study of chemistry.


Pre-Dental Course.-For most students this course is identical with the
first year of the pre-medical course. The student should correspond with the
dean of the dental college which he wishes to enter in order that he may know
the exact requirements for entrance to that college. Every legitimate effort
will be made to meet these requirements within one academic year, unless the
dental college specifies a longer period of pre-dental training.
The course of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.-
The curriculum in Journalism has been constructed with the major purpose of
providing a course of study that is best adapted to establishing the proper
relationship between instruction in the necessary technical fundamentals and
the broadest possible cultural subjects.
Instruction in Journalism proceeds upon the belief that the press is one of
civilization's most powerful instruments for social order and social statecraft,
and that the increasing appreciation of its functions as an educational agency
augments the demand for journalistic workers who are thoroughly prepared
in cultural breadth as well as specialized technique. It does not profess to
train finished newspaper men, but it does attempt to provide instruction that
will tend to shorten the period of apprenticeship through which all persons
who enter the profession of journalism must go. It attempts to help students
formulate a method of applying the realisms of social and pure science to
the realities of the public life of a journalist.
The cultural courses consist of such subjects as economics, English, foreign
language, history, journalism, laboratory science, mathematics, philosophy, po-
litical science, psychology, and sociology, and are designed to provide a broad
cultural background for the student. The technical courses are intended to
give the student the necessary training in journalistic writing and editing, and
an acquaintance with the fundamentals of the editorial and business conduct
of newspapers. The workers on modern newspapers and periodicals deal with
all phases of complex civilization, and they must possess a thorough training
in cultural backgrounds as well as the technique of journalistic procedure.
For the convenience of students who may wish to emphasize inclinations
toward the writing or business phases of journalistic activities, the curriculum
for the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Journalism is divided into two parts:
Newspaper Writing; and Newspaper Management.
Students who are primarily interested in the broad, cultural, and intellectual
training which the study of journalism affords, rather than the study of
journalism as a profession for a career, may select journalism as a major for
the degree of Bachelor of Arts. A major in Journalism consists of at least
eighteen semester hours credit in courses in Journalism above the elementary
The College of Business Administration offers two types of curricula leading
to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: first, the
Curriculum in Business Administration Proper; and second, the Curriculum
in Combination with Law.
The Curriculum in Business Administration Proper.-This curriculum ex-
tends over a period of four years. It contains both general and professional
courses. The first two years are devoted wholly to required subjects largely
cultural in nature and are intended to provide the student with a broad intel-


lectual foundation. The last two years provide an opportunity for professional
specialization in eight different fields of business. These eight groups are
arranged in such a way as to provide the student with an outline of courses
in that field of business which best fits his needs and interests.
The Curriculum in Combination with Law.-The College of Business Ad-
ministration combines with the College of Law in offering a six-year program
of study to students who desire ultimately to enter the College of Law. Students
register during the first three years in the College of Business Administration
and when they have fully satisfied the academic requirements of these three
years, they are eligible to register in the College of Law and may during their
last three years complete the course in the College of Law. When students,
after entering the College of Law, have satisfactorily completed one year's
work in law, they may offer this year of work as a substitute for the fourth
year in the College of Business Administration and receive the degree of Bachelor
of Science in Business Administration.

The College of Education offers courses designed to furnish its students
with such training as will be most useful to them in the profession of teaching,
preparing them for positions as teachers, principals, supervisors, and city and
county superintendents of public instruction.
The course leading to the Normal Diploma is a two-year course leading
to what is sometimes called the L.I. degree. The diploma entitles the holder
to a Graduate State Certificate, valid for five years, and permits the holder to
teach, through the ninth grade, the subjects in which he has specialized.
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education is a four-
year course which entitles the holder of the degree to receive a Graduate State
Certificate, valid for five years, and renewable for life upon the successful
completion of twenty-four months' teaching in Florida.
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education is a
four-year course including a required natural science group. The degree en-
titles the holder to a Graduate State Certificate, valid for five years, and re-
newable for life on the successful completion of twenty-four months' teaching
in Florida.

completion of twenty-four months' teaching in Florida.
The Employment Bureau.-In order to assist graduates of the University


and to serve the state as a whole, a Teachers' Employment Bureau has been
established by the College of Education. Services are furnished free of charge
by the Director. The Bureau is open throughout the year.
High School Visitation.-Through the Professor of Secondary Education,
the University strives to keep in close touch with the high schools of the state.
Part of his time is taken up with visiting the high schools and lending such
aid and encouragement as will be productive of stronger high schools and a
closer connection between them and the University.

The College of Engineering offers four-year courses of study leading to the
Bachelor of Science degree in the four professional fields described below.
The work of the freshman year is the same for all engineering students, so a
student is not required to choose the branch of engineering he wishes to follow
before the beginning of his sophomore year.
Instruction in all departments of the College of Engineering is given in
both theory and practice. Accuracy, neatness and systematic presentation are
required in all class and home study drawings and problems. It is the aim of
these courses to train prospective young engineers to be original and independent
in thought.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineer-
ing.-The courses in chemical engineering are designed to familiarize the student
with the efficient construction and economic operation of chemical plants. The
problems involved in the commercial manufacture of organic and inorganic
chemicals, and the methods employed to solve these problems, are considered
in detail.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.-
In this department the courses are designed to give the student a comprehensive
grasp of the principles underlying the practice of civil engineering. The class
work covering the theory of the different branches of civil engineering is
supplemented by as much work as is practicable in design, drawing, laboratory,
and field practice. The graduates are qualified to perform the duties assigned
to young engineers in genera] engineering, or in the special branches such as
hydraulic, highway, railroad, sanitary, structural, and topographical engineering.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineer-
ing.-The Department of Electrical Engineering endeavors to give the student
thorough instruction in the principles of electrical design, installation, and
operation. Consideration is given to problems pertaining to the generation,
transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical energy. In the coming
year students may select electives in the fields of communication, transmission,
distribution, generation, and electric power plant design.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engi-
neering.-Mechanical Engineering may be said to be a basic engineering
course because it deals with power and machines used to generate power, a
field so broad as to include all lines of industry. The Department of Mechan-
ical Engineering offers, in addition to the usual basic fundamental courses,
some specialized courses in Aeronautics, Aerodynamics, Heating and Ventilat-
ing and Refrigeration. The graduate taking this branch of engineering is well
qualified to readily adjust himself and give efficient service in industries and
public utility companies.


Engineering Experiment Station.-The Engineering Experiment Station is
an organization in the College of Engineering for the purpose of investigating
problems of importance to professional engineers and to the industries of
manufacturing, transportation and public utilities.

Organization.-The Graduate School is administered by the Dean and the
Graduate Council appointed annually by the President of the University. The
Dean is Ex-Officio Chairman of this Council.
Prerequisite Degrees.-Graduates of the University of Florida or of other
institutions of like rank who have a satisfactory record, including the required
foundation-courses, are eligible for admittance to the Graduate School.
Degrees Offered.-The following degrees are offered in this school: Master
of Arts, Master of Arts in Architecture, Master of Arts in Education, Master
of Science, Master of Science in Agriculture, Master of Science in Engineering,
Master of Science in Pharmacy.
In a very few departments, the University is prepared to offer the degree
of Doctor of Philosophy.
The aim of the College, which is a member of the Association of American
Law Schools, registered by the New York Board of Regents, and an approved
school of the American Bar Association, is to impart a thorough scientific and
practical knowledge of the law. Receiving only students of good academic
preparation, it gives them intensive training for the practice of law. Instruc-
tion covers the cultural, ethical, technical, and practical aspects of the pro-
fession. Sufficient courses are offered to enable a student to gain some speciali-
zation in the field of his choice. As much as six semester hours in Legal Re-
search, under faculty supervision, may be offered for a degree, thereby enabling
a student to do considerable creative work. Emphasis is given to Pleading and
Practice, and the theory is applied in the Practice Court. Students are given
an extensive working knowledge of Florida law, and graduates are admitted
to the state and federal bars without examination.
A three-year course is offered, eighty-five semester hours being required for
the degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.). Students who have a quality point
average of 2 for all the law work offered for graduation will be eligible for
the degree of LL.B. with honors. Those who have a quality point average of
2.5 for all the law work offered for graduation, which work must include
Legal Research, will be eligible for the degree of LL.B. with high honors.

As a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the
School receives due recognition for its courses from state boards of pharmacy
requiring graduation from a school of pharmacy of membership rank as a
prerequisite for examination and registration. The curricula are designed to
provide a broad scientific education, to train retail pharmacists, and through
the selection of electives to provide opportunities for specialization in com-
mercial pharmacy, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacognosy, or pharmacology.
The Three-Year Course.-This course, which leads to the diploma of Grad-
uate in Pharmacy, requires 102 semester hours for its completion. The course is


being discontinued. Only the third year of this course is being offered in
1933-34 and it will not be offered thereafter. Therefore, freshmen and sopho-
more students entering in, and after, 1933 can register only for the four-year
course. Students of advanced standing may, upon presentation of the proper
credits, be admitted for the present year to the third-year class.
The Four-Year Course.-This course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Sci-
ence in Pharmacy. It is now the only course open to freshmen and sophomores.
This course is designed to meet the needs of those students preparing them-
selves for store managers, manufacturers, or dispensers of medical products in
retail pharmacies, public hospitals and the U. S. Army and Navy.
Graduate Courses.-Courses under the direction of the Graduate School are
offered leading to the degrees of Master of Science in Pharmacy and Doctor
of Philosophy, with chemistry, pharmacognosy, or pharmacy as the major subject.
Medicinal Plant Garden.-The Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmacol-
ogy maintains a drug garden which serves for three purposes: (1) as a teaching
adjunct offering the students an opportunity to study the methods of propaga-
tion, cultivation, curing, and preparation of drug plants for market; (2) as a
source of supply of fresh plant material for classroom and laboratory, and also
for investigation; (3) to carry on cultural experiments in the growing of
various medicinal plants.
The University Summer Session is an integral part of the University. 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 are kept open during the summer. Emphasis is placed upon
college and graduate work, no work of high school rank being offered.
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.



The Board of Control will confer the degree appropriate to the course pur-
sued under the following conditions:
1. Curriculum requirements.-Certification by the Registrar of the com-
pletion of all requirements of the course of study as outlined in the college
announcement, or its equivalent as determined by the faculty of the college
offering the course.
2. Recommendation of the faculty.
3. Residence requirements.-Advanced standing will be allowed on certifi-
cation from other recognized institutions and may be obtained also by examina-
tion held before a committee of the faculty appointed for that purpose provided
that the following minimum requirement for residence at the University of
Florida has been met.
The student must earn at least one year's credit in residence in this Uni-
versity. If the term of residence is only one year, that year must be the senior
year. In addition, special residence requirements must be met in several of
the schools and colleges. See individual announcements.
4. Attendance at commencement.-All candidates for degrees are required
to be present at commencement exercises. A student who fails to attend shall
not receive his diploma until he complies with this requirement.

A program of vocational guidance is carried on for the students through a
series of tests, through interviews, and through the application of scientific
occupational information. In addition, 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.

The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, which is approximately
in the geographical center of the state. The campus itself, which faces West
University Avenue, is a mile from the business center of the city. When the
University was established in Gainesville in 1905, a plan of campus development
was arranged, so that the University now presents a definite style of architecture
and landscaping. A tract of more than a thousand acres is occupied by the
University, ninety of which are devoted to the campus proper, the remainder
being utilized by the College of Agriculture and the Agricultural Experiment
Station. A total of thirty-nine buildings have been erected, eighteen of which
are of brick and concrete. The dominant type of architecture is Collegiate
Gothic. Tall pines with low-hanging Spanish moss, which dominate the campus
landscape, palms, oaks, and abundant sub-tropical shrubbery furnish an appro-
priate setting for the State University of Florida.
In Language Hall are centered the offices of administration and many of the
class rooms and offices of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Business Admin-
istration. The College of Law is housed in the Law Building. Immediately
south of Language Hall are: the Library, to which a new wing has recently been






added; Peabody Hall, which furnishes the present home for the College of
Education; and Benton Engineering Building and the Engineering Building, in
which are the laboratories, class rooms, and offices of the College of Engineering.
On the south edge of the quadrangle is the University Auditorium, with a seating
capacity of 2,200. West of the quadrangle are the Agriculture Building, the
Chemistry-Pharmacy Building, and Science Hall, in which is the Florida State
West of the quadrangle are Buckman Hall, Thomas Hall, and the New Dor-
mitory, which provide accommodations for five hundred students. The New
Dormitory is of new and modern construction; Thomas Hall has recently been
At the back of the campus are the Horticulture Building, the Experiment
Station Building, the Infirmary, and the Old and New Gymnasiums. The In-
firmary is a new structure; it is completely equipped and has a normal capacity
of forty beds.
Forming the western edge of the campus are the Artillery Stables, baseball
diamond, track, tennis and handball courts, polo field, and the new Stadium,
which has a seating capacity of 22,000. Near the Stadium is an outdoor swim-
ming pool with a capacity of half a million gallons.
On the southern edge of the campus are WRUF, State and University Radio
Station, and the gardens of the Experiment Station. A new laboratory school
building for the College of Education is now under construction.
Twenty-two national and three local social fraternities rent or own their own
homes. Most of the fraternity houses are on West University Avenue.


The Libraries of the University are: the General Library, the Experiment
Station Library, the General Extension Division Library, the Law Library, and
the Museum Library. They now contain over one hundred thousand volumes.
The General Library is housed in the Library Building, a modern, fire-proof
structure with a seating capacity of between 750 and 800, and a stack capacity
of two hundred thousand volumes. The Reserve Book Reading Room on the
first floor has a seating capacity of 348. In addition there is a Graduate
Reading Room. There are 48 carrels in the stacks for the use of the faculty
and graduate students. The stack equipment includes standard steel stacks,
an automatic book conveyor, a pneumatic tube system, and an elevator. The
Florida Room houses a special collection of Florida material. Every effort is
made to add to this collection by both gift and purchase.
The Library contains a good working collection of general reference books
including encyclopaedias, dictionaries, yearbooks, and handbooks. Included are
standard encyclopaedias and dictionaries in foreign languages. Particular
attention is paid to files of bound periodicals in both English and foreign lan-
guages. These are important in reference and research work and are used by
students and faculty. M my of the files go back to the first volume and others
to early volume,, which increases their value for reference and research work.
Every effort is being made to complete these files as rapidly as possible.
The University Library is a depository for the official publications of the
United States Government. The Library also receives valuable studies from
universities, learned societies, and other organizations on exchange. The



Library receives regularly by subscription 456 and by gift 213 periodicals of a
general and scientific nature. Many daily and weekly state newspapers send
complimentary copies to the Library. These papers are filed and when funds
permit will be bound.
The Library makes every effort to be of assistance to the students. In
addition to an open shelf browsing collection of over 1,400 volumes, a large
book display on special subjects is changed every week and a smaller display
contains books of timely interest. Bibliographies are prepared and information
collected for class work. Special attention is given to collecting material for
various phases of debate activity. Lectures on the use of the Library, including
the card catalog and the more used reference books, are given to the Freshmen
during Freshman Week.
The Library is open from 7:45 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. every week-day except Sat-
urdays, when it closes at 5:00 P.M. During the first and second semester it is
open on Sundays from 2:00 to 5:00 P.M.



The course in Military Science is required of all freshmen and sophomores
except students in the College of Law and adult special students.
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 attendance, clothing, and laundry service, and in addition the pay of
the seventh grade, United States Army.

The General Extension Division of the University of Florida serves the peo-
ple of the state by offering educational opportunities to those who are removed
from the campus, and assists in promoting the general advancement of the
people through numerous service functions.
The Division represents the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Engi-
neering, Law, Business Administration and the School of Pharmacy of the Uni-
versity, 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 oppor-
tunity for discussion on problems confronting groups or communities. The
Department of Auditory Instruction offers cultural programs, instruction, infor-
mation, and entertainment by lectures and discussion for the benefit of special
groups, schools, and individuals.
Training for naturalization, citizenship schools, and cooperation with the
War Department in enrolling young men for the Citizens' Military Training
Camps because of their educational value, are some phases of the work of the
Department of Citizenship Training.
Through the Departments of Visual Instruction and General Information
and Service, the outside world of letters and arts and music is carried to thou-
sands 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 re-
corded 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 much to adult education.

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


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 con-
tests and takes several trips a year.
The Orchestra plays at the regular Convocations.
The Glee Club makes several trips a year throughout the state.
Opportunities are afforded qualified students to broadcast as soloists, instru-
mentally or vocally, over the radio station WRUF.
Private lessons in violin, orchestra instruments, band instruments, voice,
organ, and piano may be arranged. Tuition will be required of all students
taking private lessons.

The Office of the Dean of Students deals with students' personal problems
and with organized student activities. While this office deals mainly with
students in organized groups, the problems of the individuals are never neg-
lected. Special attention is given to those students who need help in matters
of adjustment to courses, housing conditions, employment, scholarships, delin-
quent grades, etc. Communications from parents relative to the work of their
sons while at the University will be appreciated, and this office will take pleasure
in making every effort to secure proper adjustment of the student to his college
During Freshman Week every possible effort is made to orient the incoming
freshman. The entire period is given over to activities which will guide him
in his selection of the right course of study. For detailed information concern-
ing the activities of Freshman Week, see the Bulletin of Freshman Week..
Any student making a grade of below C during any six weeks' period is
required to interview the dean of his college and the Dean of Students.
The Bureau of Placements, under the direction of the Dean of Students,
seeks to assist all graduates in securing positions. Students are urged to avail
themselves of the facilities of this Bureau.
The Dean of Students is Chairman of the Committee on Social Activities,
which has charge of working out the social calendar of the student organizations.

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 UPPER-
CLASSMEN. The following conditions will govern it in making assignments:
a. The scholastic record of the student will be taken into consideration.
No student failing as much as six hours will be considered. No student
falling below an average of C will be considered.


b. Preference will be given to those having experience.
c. The financial condition of the student will he taken into consideration.
d. No graduate students will be used except as graduate assistants in posi-
tions requiring the training which the student has secured in college.
e. 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
f. A student may not hold two University positions the combined salaries
of which exceed $100 per year.

Unskilled labor is paid for at the present time at the rate of thirty cents
per hour; skilled labor is proportionately compensated. Undergraduate lab-
oratory assistants are paid by the hour according to the following schedule:
Sophom ores ............-.............. ....... ...................... $ .35
Juniors ....................................... ....... ............. .40
S en iors .. ................................ ..... ....................... .45

A few students are employed as waiters, as janitors, and in other capacities.
Such employment, as a rule, is not given to a student otherwise financially able
to attend the University. Application for employment should be made to the
Dean of Students.
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 located
on the campus. The Infirmary is open at all hours, day or night, for the admis-
sion of patients. The Resident Physician lives at the Infirmary and his services
are available at all hours, in case of emergency. The Dispensary, which is
located in the Infirmary building, is open from 7:30 to 9 A.M., from 12 noon to
1 P.M. and from 4 to 7 P.M., during which time physicians are in attendance and
may be consulted.
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 Exam-
ining 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 in order to offer con-
ferences with physicians, examinations, diagnosis and treatment of minor in-
juries 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, or from improper treatment. In the Dispensary, a modern, well equipped
drug room is maintained, which furnishes the necessary drugs to the student,
without charge. A laboratory is operated in connection with the Infirmary and
Dispensary and is in charge of a trained nurse-technician, thereby rendering
efficient service in assisting in prompt diagnosis. The normal capacity of the


Infirmary is 45 beds. In emergencies, this capacity can be increased. Ample
provisions are made for the isolation of communicable diseases. A completely
equipped operating room is maintained to provide proper facilities for major
surgical operations. The Infirmary is also equipped with a mobile unit X-ray,
which is used for the examination of fractures, but the equipment does not pro-
vide 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.
The Health Service has been established for the purpose of safeguarding the
health of students. Its aims are: (1) to help each student entering the Univer-
sity of Florida to possess a healthy, vigorous, active and harmoniously developed
body, thereby contributing much to his success while in college and in later
life; (2) to reduce to the very minimum the prodigious academic and economic
loss due to indisposition and illness of students. Positive health is its goal.
Students enrolling in the University for the first time are furnished a physical
examination form by the Registrar's Office, which is to be completed by the
family physician and pinned 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 abnormalities, which should be corrected
prior to the student's entrance in the University, as the correction of these
defects is necessary in order that he may be in proper physical condition
before leaving home.
There are three principal phases of the activities of the University Health
Service: (1) personal attention, (2) sanitation, and (3) education.
1. Personal Division.-This division is concerned with the physical exam-
ination 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 follow-
ing are some of the phases of the work in the personal division:
a. Provision for maintaining the health of normal, physically sound students;
cooperation with the Department of Physical Education regarding physi-
cal exercise; education concerning right living; safeguarding of environ-
b. Protection of the physically sound students from communicable diseases;
early detection and isolation of all cases of communicable diseases-
tuberculosis, diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles, typhoid fever, smallpox,
mumps, etc.
c. Provision for the care and treatment of such cases of communicable
'diseases-isolation hospital.
d. 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.
e. Reconstruction and reclamation: corrections of defects, advice, and treat-
ment of all abnormalities.


2. Division of Sanitation.-The student's environment should be made as
hygienic as possible. Hence, this division concerns itself with the sanitary con-
ditions 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 confer-
ences on this subject, education in hygiene and right living is conducted.


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 after reg-
The rules and regulations of the University are published in a separate bul-
letin entitled By-Laws of the University of Florida, copies of which are distrib-
uted to all who register at the University. Each student is held responsible for
the observance of the rules and regulations of the University in so far as they
affect him.



The University, through its Committee on Admissions, reserves the right
to deny admission to students who are not residents of the State of Florida.
The University of Florida is not co-educational. The State supported insti-
tution of higher learning for women is the Florida State College for Women,
at Tallahassee.
Admission of male students to the schools or colleges of the University which
accept students directly from high schools may be obtained:
(1) By presenting a certificate of graduation from an accredited high school,
(2) By passing entrance examinations,
(3) By qualifying as an adult special student, or
(4) By submitting a certified record of credits from a recognized institution
of higher learning.
These methods are described in detail below.


The candidate for admission must present a certificate of graduation from
an accredited preparatory school (a list of accredited high schools in the State
of Florida will be found on pages 141 to 144). Certificates representing examina-
tions given by the College Entrance Board or the New York Regents are like-
wise accepted. The candidate must offer at least fifteen acceptable units, of
which twelve must be academic units (English, mathematics, science, history,
and foreign language), including nine required units as follows: (For descrip-
tion of the units allowed in the groups see pages 137 and 138).
Group I.- English ......-. ................... ........... ................... 3 units
Group II.-Foreign Language (see Note 1 below)....................... 2 units
Group III.-History and Social Sciences ..................... 1 unit
Group IV.-Mathematics (see Note 2 below)
Algebra ... ---.............-............................... 1 unit
Plane Geometry ........................................ 1 unit
Group V.-Laboratory Science ...................................... ... 1 unit

No condition will be permitted in the nine required units listed above.
Note 1. Students unable to meet the Group II requirement may present a
total of four units in Groups III and V, in lieu of this requirement. Students
are advised to present at least two units in one foreign language. Students
entering the College of Business Administration without two units in one foreign
language are required to take a foreign language in college.
The amount of college credit in a foreign language required in the College
of Arts and Sciences is reduced for those students having high school units in
one or more foreign languages.
Note. 2. Students entering the College of Engineering are required to
present the four units listed in Group IV, (page 137). In exceptional cases.
students who have but three of these units may be admitted to this college


provided they pass satisfactorily the Engineering Qualifying Examination. How-
ever, such students must remove the deficiencies before they may register for
the sophomore year.
The course in Architecture requires all the units in Group IV (see below) with
the exception of one-half unit in advanced algebra. Students may be admitted
to that course with two and one-half units in Group IV, but they must remove
the deficiencies before they may register for the sophomore year.

Below is shown the minimum and maximum number of units in any one
subject that will be accepted by the various colleges of the University. The
term unit means not less than five recitations of forty minutes each week for
a school year of thirty-six weeks. In manual subjects and kindred courses it
means the equivalent of ten recitation periods a week for thirty-six weeks.

tions given by the State Department of Education entitle the holder to entrance
credit by examination.
The First Grade Certificate.-The first grade certificate entitles the holder
to entrance credit by examination as follows: rhetoric and composition, two
units; ancient history, one unit; medieval and modern history, one unit;
psychology, one unit; biology, one unit (only if it appears on certificate);
civics, one-half unit; algebra, two units; agriculture, one-half unit total,

Special Certificates.-Special certificates will be considered on their merits.



In addition to the general requirements for admission by certificate, the
individual colleges and schools of the University have certain special require-
ments, as described below.
Short courses in Agriculture.-The candidate may be admitted to either
the four-months or the one-year course in Agriculture without the required high
school entrance units. However, such students may register for courses in
the agricultural departments only.

Qualifying examinations.-Qualifying examinations are given all candidates
for admission to freshman engineering classes. These are in the nature of
intelligence tests. Pending the provision of enlarged facilities for instruction,
the right is reserved to limit the number of freshmen admitted to the College
of Engineering to such number as can be properly accommodated with the
present facilities. This qualifying examination must be passed before a student
will be registered in this course. Students having successfully completed a
year's course in another college will be exempt from this examination.
Exceptional students who pass the qualifying examination may be admitted
to the College of Engineering with a condition of one unit in mathematics.
This condition must be removed during the freshman year.

Applicants for admission to the College of Law as candidates for degrees
must be eighteen years of age and must present, in addition to satisfactory
college entrance credits, the completion of one-half of the work acceptable for
a bachelor's degree on the basis of a four-year period of study at this University.
Evidence of this work must be presented to the Registrar of the University on
or before the date on which the candidate wishes to register.
The College requires a C average on credits offered for admission, and the
credits must meet the requirements of the Association of American Law Schools.
No specific course of studies is prescribed for the college work required
for admission. The combined academic and law courses offered in the College
of Arts and Sciences, and in the College of Business Administration are
Women Students.-Women students who are twenty-one years of age and
who fully meet the entrance requirements of the College may enter as candidates
for degrees.
Special Students.-Special students are not admitted to the College.
Advanced Standing.-No work in law done in other institutions will be
accepted towards a degree unless the applicant passes satisfactorily the exam-
inations held in the subjects in question in this College, or unless credit is
given without examination. Credit of an average of C from schools which are
members of the Association of American Law Schools, of which this College is
a member, will be accepted without examination. In no case will credit be
given for work not done in residence at an approved law school.



Graduates of non-accredited high schools who present at least fifteen ac-
ceptable units, including the nine required units listed on page 136, may be
admitted provided they pass entrance examinations in the following subjects:
English-Rhetoric and composition; American and English
Mathematics-First year algebra, plane geometry
History-one unit
Science-one unit
Non-graduates of accredited or non-accredited high schools are required to
take examinations in all subjects offered for admission.
A college aptitude test will ordinarily be given in lieu of the above exam-
Entrance examinations will be given on the dates published in the Uni-
versity Calendar. Students failing to take the examinations on these dates will
be required to pay a special examination fee of $5.

Applicants for admission who are at least twenty-one years of age and who
wish to pursue a special and limited course of study may enter the University
without meeting the afore-mentioned entrance requirements. They must, how-
ever, secure the approval of the dean of the college concerned for the work
they wish to pursue.
Adult special students are subject to all regulations of the University
except the entrance requirements.

The University accepts credits toward advanced standing from all reputable
colleges and universities. Such credits are accepted as far as they represent
courses equivalent to those offered in this institution, if the grades are suffi-
ciently high to meet the quality credit requirement. The certified record of
courses taken in other institutions must be upon the official blank of the insti-
tution granting the certificate and should show:
a. The subject studied, the catalog course number, and the descriptive title.
b. The number of weeks and hours a week spent upon each subject.
c. The value of the course expressed in credits.
d. The exact grades, accompanied by an explanation of the marking system
e. A list of the preparatory units presented upon entrance.
f. A letter or statement of honorable dismissal.
Applications for advanced standing should be made, if possible, at least
one month before the student expects to enter the University.
Upon the University's receipt of a transcript of credit, the candidate will
be mailed an application for admission. When this is returned, properly filled
out, the Registrar will present the applicant with a certificate of admission,
giving the applicant's classification and directions for registration.
All statements concerning advanced standing and classification are pro-
visional, subject to the satisfactory completion of one year's work at the Uni-
versity by the applicant.
Students who, because of failure in studies, are not allowed to return to


the institution they last attended, or who failed in half of their work during
the last period they attended that institution, will be denied admission to the
University of Florida.
The following institutions in the State of Florida are fully accredited
institutions because of their membership in the Southern Association of Sec-
ondary Schools and Colleges:
The Florida State College for Women, Tallahassee
Rollins College, Winter Park
St. Petersburg Junior College, St. Petersburg
John B. Stetson University, DeLand
Upon the request of the following institutions their work in arts and sciences
and teacher training was inspected by the University and accredited for the
year 1932-33:
Miami University, Coral Gables
Southern College, Lakeland
Bob Jones College (Junior College), College Point
Ringling Junior College, Sarasota

All Florida high schools are furnished with preparatory record blanks.
Students who are not residents of the State of Florida should write to the
Registrar requesting a Preparatory Record Blank. This will be sent promptly,
and should be presented to the principal of the high school last attended,
with instructions that it be mailed directly to
The Registrar
University of Florida
Gainesville, Florida.
Upon receipt of the credentials at the University, the candidate will be sent
an application blank. When this is returned, the applicant will be sent an
admission certificate containing directions for registration.
A preparatory record will not be accepted unless it comes directly from
the principal to the Registrar.
A student will not be allowed to register until his credits have been received
and accepted.
Recommendation.-Prospective candidates for admission who are deficient
in the specific entrance requirements required by the individual colleges (see
pages 136 to 139) are advised to make up the deficiency prior to registration
by attending the Summer Session, by correspondence-study, or otherwise. See
the Bulletin of the Summer Session or the Correspondence-Study Bulletin of
the General Extension Division.

High School Visitation.-Through the Professor of Secondary Education,
the University strives to keep in close touch with the high schools of the state.
Part of his time is taken up with visiting the high schools and lending such
aid and encouragement as will be productive of stronger high schools and a
closer connection between them and the University.




Tuition.-No tuition is charged residents of the State of Florida except in
the College of Law and the College of Business Administration.
Non-resident Fee.-The non-resident tuition fee is $200 per year or $100 per
semester, payable in advance. This fee is charged all non-resident students,
including those pursuing graduate work. No person is eligible to register in
the University as a resident of the State of Florida unless he has been a bona fide
resident in the state during the twelve months immediately preceding the date
of his registration. Bona fide residence is established by qualifying as a
voter of this state. The residence of a minor shall be that of his parents.
College of Business Administration.-A special fee of $10 per year, payable
in advance, is charged all students regularly enrolled in the College of Business
Administration. One dollar per semester-hour is charged students registered
in other colleges who elect courses in Business Administration not marked "E".
College of Law.-A tuition fee of $40 per year, or $20 per semester, payable
in advance, is charged students registering in the College of Law.

Registration and Contingent Fee.-This fee of $7.50 per year is charged
all students, including those regularly enrolled in the graduate school.
Laboratory Fees.-A small fee, payable in advance, is charged in all courses
in which laboratory work is required, to cover the cost of materials consumed
and wear and tear on equipment. The amount of the fee varies in different
courses, in no case, however, exceeding $5 per semester-hour. Laboratory fees
are listed in the description of courses in the catalogue of courses.
Military Fee.-A fee of $2 is charged all first- and second-year men regis-
tered for Military Science, in order to protect against loss of government
ordnance. Juniors and seniors taking Military Science are exempt from this fee.
Uniforms, except shoes and cotton shirts, are issued, without charge, to
all students taking military training. Each student must have at all times
one pair of regulation army shoes and one cotton shirt, in good condition.
These articles are furnished by the University at the cost price. At the end
of the year, or sooner if the student drops out of the University, all property
except shoes and cotton shirts must be returned to the supply room. Any
willful damage to the uniform or equipment must be paid for by the individual
Infirmary Fee.-All students are charged an infirmary fee of $7.50 per year,
which secures for the student in case of illness the privilege of a bed in the
Infirmary and the services of the University Physician and professionally
trained nurses, except in cases involving a major operation. A student requiring
an emergency operation, which is not covered by the fee assessed, may employ
the services of any accredited physician whom he may select, and utilize the
facilities of the Infirmary for the operation. To secure this medical service,
the student must report to the physician in charge of the Infirmary. A fee of $5
is charged for the use of the operating room. Board in the Infirmary is
charged at the rate of $1 a day.

in the Graduate School who do not wish to participate in student activities.
Locker Fee.-A fee of $2.50 is charged all students for use of the lockers
and supplies furnished in the gymnasium and swimming pool.
Room Reservation Fee.-A fee of $10 is charged at the time reservations are
made for a room in the dormitories. This fee is retained as a deposit against
damage to the room or its furnishings. The fee, less charges for any damages
done to the room by the student, is refunded when he returns his key and
gives up his room.
Diploma Fee.-A diploma fee of $5 is charged all candidates for a degree.
Breakage Fee.-Any student registering for a course requiring locker and
laboratory apparatus in one or more of the following departments is required
to buy a breakage book: Chemistry, Pharmacy, Biology, Electrical Engineering,
and Physics. This book costs $5. A refund will be allowed on any unused
portion at the end of the year, when the student has checked in his apparatus
to the satisfaction of the departments concerned. No charge will be made
from this fee for materials used, or for normal wear and tear on apparatus, as
this is covered by the general laboratory fee.
Examination Fee.-No fee is charged for examination at the regular exam-
ination period. To take an examination or re-examination at any other regularly
scheduled time, the student must secure a card from the Registrar and pay a
fee of $2 for each subject, although, in case there are more than two subjects,
the maximum charge in any period of examination is $5.

circulation that is not returned within the limit of two weeks. "Reserve" books
may be checked out overnight, and if they are not returned on time the fine
is 5 cents an hour or fraction of an hour until they are returned. No book
may be checked out if the fine is over 25 cents.
Repeat Fee.-A fee of $2.50 per semester-hour is charged for courses which
are repeated, or for courses which the student substitutes for courses he has failed.


Adult special students who carry 9 hours or less shall be charged the
registration and contingent fee of $7.50, and a proportionate part of any tuition
fee assessed on the basis of a normal load of 15 semester-hours. These
students shall not be entitled to any of the privileges attached to any other
University fee.
Adult special students who already hold a recognized under-graduate
degree, and who register for the first semester only in order to meet the
special requirements in Education, Medicine, etc., shall pay the regular fee,
but shall be entitled to the usual refund at the end of the semester. During
the registration period, such students should mark clearly on their personnel
card that they intend to register for the first semester only.

Students who register for the first time in the academic year at the beginning
of the second semester are subject to the following fees:
Registration and Contingent Fee ........................$ 7.50

Special fee in the College of Business Administration
(Second semester only) ............................ $ 7.00

None of the above fees are required of students who paid fees for the whole
year at the beginning of the first semester.

After a student has attended classes for three days, he is not entitled to
any refund except upon the unused portion of his breakage book. Students re-
signing before they have attended classes for three days are entitled to a
refund of all fees except the registration and contingent fee of $7.50. This
fee is never refunded.
Fees are charged for the entire session to those students who register in
September. If a student intends to register for the first semester only, he
will be entitled to a refund at the end of the first semester of $13 (i. e., $8.50
from his student activity fee, and $4.50 for half of the infirmary fee) provided
he marks clearly on his personnel card that he expects to register for the
first semester only. Such students may also receive a refund of $5 (i. e., one-
half of the tuition paid) should they be registered in the College of Business
Students graduating at the end of the first semester, and having paid all
fees, will be entitled to a refund of $13, the same amount as listed above for
students who declare their intention to register for the first semester only.
However, students in both of the above cases who desire a copy of the Seminole,
will be entitled to a refund of only $10.



The University operates three dormitories, New Dormitory, Thomas Hall,
and Buckman Hall, accommodating altogether about five hundred students.
Except in case of special reasons, it is recommended that freshmen room in
one of the dormitories for at least the first semester. Accordingly, preference
is given to freshmen applying for rooms in these dormitories.
Although rooms in the dormitories are partially furnished, students are
required to provide their own bedding, towels, and toilet articles. Janitor
service, provided in all dormitories, includes the care of rooms by maids under
the supervision of a competent housekeeper. The conduct of the students in
the dormitories is entirely in the hands of monitors, appointed by the Dean of
Students. Reasonable regulations as to noise, care of property, and respect for
the rights of other individuals are insisted upon. The President of the Student
Body is given a room in one of the dormitories, and is made head monitor.
All questions of government come from the monitors, through him, to the
Dean of Students.
New Dormitory.-The New Dormitory is of strictly fireproof construction.
Rooms are arranged in suites, consisting of study and bedroom, and accommo-
dating two students. A limited number of single rooms and several suites
accommodating three students are available. All rooms are equipped with

cation must be accompanied by the Room Reservation Fee of $10. If a room
has been assigned, no refund will be made later than September 9. Students
not assigned a room will be entitled to a refund upon request. Students con-
tracting for rooms when assigned will not be permitted a refund if they with-
draw from the dormitories during the semester. Contracts for rooms in the
dormitories are for one semester, and in the absence of exceedingly important
reasons no student will be given permission to vacate a room during this time
unless he places some one in his room from off campus, in which case he may
transfer his contract. Keys for dormitory rooms will be issued students against
the room reservation fee.
Board and rooms in private homes of Gainesville may be procured at rates
of $30 to $45 per student per month, depending upon the accommodations and
the proximity to the campus. A large number of rooming houses, as well as
cafeterias, lunch rooms, and dining rooms are located within easy walking
distance, and students may secure any class of accommodations they desire.

The University of Florida is unfortunate in the fewness of scholarships and
loans which are open to students. Generally, the scholarships and loans which
are available are administered directly by the donors. However, the Committee
on Scholarships, of which the Dean of Students is chairman, collects all infor-
mation relative to vacancies, basis of award, value, and other pertinent facts
and supplies this information to interested students. The Committee also col-
lects 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 thing taken into consid-
eration. 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.
Inquiries relative to scholarships and loans should be addressed to the Dean
of Students, University of Florida, Gainesville.
Senatorial and Teachers Scholarships.-The Legislature has provided that
every senatorial district of the State shall be allowed annually one scholarship
for men at the University of Florida; and that every county of the State shall
be allowed as many scholarships in the College of Education of the University
of Florida as that county has representatives in the House of Representatives.
These latter scholarships shall be awarded only to such residents of the several
counties as intend to make teaching in this state their occupation. The scholar-
ships are awarded after a competitive examination, taken pursuant to the pro-
visions of the act and to appropriate rules and regulations prescribed by the
State Board of Education. Scholarships from senatorial districts are designated
as Senatorial State Scholarships, and are awarded after a competitive examina-


tion. The holder may register for any of the regular courses at the University
of Florida and is not required to teach after graduation. The value of these
scholarships is $200 per year.
Students desiring to take these competitive examinations should communi-
cate with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tallahassee, 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 Re-
habilitation 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 approx-
imately one hundred dollars per student. Inquiries for these scholarships
should be addressed to Mr. Claude M. Andrews, State Supervisor of Vocational
Rehabilitation, Tallahassee, 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 other-

Intramural Program.-The Intramural Department is headed by the Intra-
mural Director, as a member of the staff of the Athletic Department, who is
assisted by an administrative board composed of the Athletic Director, Director
of Required Physical Education, President of the Student Athletic Council,
and Senior Managers. In addition to the administrative personnel, it might be
appropriately added that the actual execution of the program itself is conducted
by the managerial board composed of students of the University.
The function of the Intramural Department is to encourage the entire student
body to participate in organized athletic sports and also to encourage participa-


tion in wholesome active recreation. The Department, therefore, provides
facilities for such competition and recreation; organizes and promotes competi-
tion between students, groups and individuals; and fosters a spirit of fair
play and sportsmanship among participants and spectators.
The program of intramural activities includes the following sports: Golf,
swimming, horseshoes, cross country, volleyball, touch football, basketball,
boxing, wrestling, diamond ball, tennis, handball, water basketball, track,
fencing, gymnastics, and Sigma Delta Psi (national athletic fraternity) events.
The proper utilization of leisure time through recreation and play finds
splendid expression in this program. It is estimated that over 1,800 different
students (72 per cent) take part in some sport sponsored by the Department.
Experience indicates that there is a decided trend in the student body toward
the expansion of recreational facilities to a large group of students as opposed
to intense competition for the few as evidenced in intramural athletics. In-
vestigation into the programs in effect in other Southern colleges and uni-
versities reveals the fact that the Intramural Department is without peer in the
Attitude Concerning Scholarships for Athletes.-At a recent meeting of the
newly-formed Southeastern Conference, there were adopted resolutions con-
cerning the awarding of scholarships to athletes. These resolutions were
practically identical with those set up at the University of Florida. The attitude
of the Department of Athletics of the University of Florida is that scholarships
for athletes should be administered and controlled by the same committee
which administers other scholarships; that all awards should be made on a
loan basis and predicated upon the donee being needy and maintaining an
average of C or better. It is believed that if this policy is adhered to through-
out the Southeastern Conference, athletic standards will be much improved and
the contribution which intercollegiate sports play in the life of undergraduates
will become much more marked and lasting.
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 ex-
plained to all freshmen during the first week of their enrollment in the Univer-
sity. However, each parent, as well as each prospective student, is urged to
read the following discussion of the Honor System carefully, 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 Association, 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 themselves through the means of
the Honor System. Inaugurated by some of our greatest educators in higher
institutions of the nation, and early adopted in some departments of the Uni-
versity of Florida, the Honor System was finally established in the entire
University in 1914 through 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 representatives were selected by the students to ad-
minister 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 the Student Body against the lack of ethical character
of a few men who may violate the Honor Code, it becomes the duty of each
member, not only to abide by the Honor Code but to report any violations he
may observe to the Honor Court. Many men coming to the University for the
first time may feel hesitant about assuming this responsibility, inasmuch as
early school training has created certain 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
(a) Cheating; giving or receiving any manner of aid in connection with a
test or examination in any college course.
(b) Stealing.
(c) The passing of 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 on occasion. Fruits and supplies are placed openly on the campus, with
the confidence that each man will pay for any he may take. Every man is
allowed to be the keeper of his own conscience until he shall prove to his
fellow-students that he no longer deserves the trust placed in him.
A breach of the System may be very flagrant and serious, or it may be
extenuated by circumstances, and need only mild corrective measures to help
the violator obtain a finer conception of right and wrong. To enforce the
System equitably and punish occasional infractions the students have established
the Honor Court. The Court is composed of students elected annually from
upper classes of the various colleges on the campus. Their jurisdiction of all
violations of the Honor Code is final, but with the privilege of appeal by a
student to the Faculty Discipline Committee.
The penal purpose of the Honor Court should receive less stress, perhaps,
than its educational purpose, which is its most important function. The
responsibility of acquainting every member of the Student Body with the
purpose, advantages, and principles of the Honor System is placed upon mem-
bers of the Court. In line with this work, members of the Honor Court
participate in the orientation program each year during Freshman Week. In
addition to a series of explanatory talks at that time, special chapel programs
are conducted by the Honor Court during the school year, Honor System
talks are delivered in the various high schools of the state upon request,
and radio programs for the high schools are broadcast from the station in
Gainesville. In this way the Honor Court has endeavored to fulfill a great
responsibility to the men who will undertake the problem of self-government
and self-discipline.
The parent of every prospective student should feel that it is his respon-


sibility to stress the paramount importance of honorable conduct on the part
of his son while he is attending the University of Florida. Dishonest action
brings sorrow to parent and student alike and seriously reflects on the home
training of the culprit.
Because University students have proved worthy of the trust and responsi-
bility involved in administering an Honor System, this feature of student
government has prospered and become the greatest student tradition at the
University of Florida. It must be remembered that, inasmuch as it is a student
responsibility primarily, the future of the System rests with each new class
of students who enter the University. 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.

Student Government.-Student government in the University of Florida is
a cooperative organization based on mutual confidence between the student body
and the faculty. Considerable 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-curricula
affairs and the administration of the Honor System.
Every enrolled student, except graduate and special students, 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 very valuable part
of the educational growth of the individual student. The Student Body is
practically a body politic with sovereignty in itself in the fields where Univer-
city authorities have granted control. In all cases, appeal lies from decisions
of Student Body committees to the President of the University.
Student government is patterned on the state and national form of govern-
ment, but, of course, modified and adapted to meet 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 Secretary-Treasurer of the Student Body. Members of all three branches
are elected directly by the Student Body once a year.
Therefore, student government, in order to carry out those purposes for
