SCAPLE: -- .. ... .



The general information bulletin contains such material as will be helpful to
the high school graduate or prospective student, and his parents. In it is found
the necessary information about the entrance requirements, living conditions, fees,
University organizations, etc.
It is sent out on request for such help as it may give young men who are think-
ing of coming to the University. It is not designed to urge a college education
on any or all who may receive it. It will serve its purpose if it helps in the
thoughtful consideration that should be given by parents and high school grad-
uates when they choose a college education from among the many opportunities
for further training. It presents a certain type of training which should be consid-
ered in relation to other opportunities such as vocational and trade schools of the
better kind, normal schools and teachers' colleges, junior and private colleges,
and extension courses and correspondence schools. The controlling factor in any
decision should be the best interests of the individual and his capacity to make
successful use of the opportunities offered by the University or by any of the
agencies suggested above. The choice is often not an easy one. Perhaps the fol-
lowing suggestions may be helpful.
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 the
individual's high school work.
The first choice which the student has to make is that between a long period
of studies and some immediate employment such as a mechanical trade, buying
and selling, clerical work, and many others, perhaps preceded by a shorter period
of special study or training.
The wise student will make his decision after an inventory of his own real
interests and abilities and will in any case avoid a choice that does not open up
to him opportunities to use to the fullest his abilities as they are or as they develop.
Generally speaking, those who like their high school studies and are success-
ful in them are more likely to succeed in college studies. Of those who stand in
the lowest one fourth of their high school classes very few are successful in college
work. Most of these would do well to consider other types of training for a voca-
tion in which they may be successful. Of those who stand in the highest one
fourth of their high school classes about 80 per cent make satisfactory records in
college. It is very unfortunate for those young people who have shown their
aptitude for studies to be drawn into employment immediately after high school
when most of them are capable of preparing for and assuming positions of high
responsibility and honor in industrial and social life of state and nation. Given
good health and the power of application, those who like their high school studies
and stand high in them ought to make every effort to secure college training.
College 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. The college conducts its work
with a view to developing initiative, independent judgment, and responsibility in
its students for the two reasons that the studies require these qualities and that
the students are just becoming men and must assume the duties and obligations
of men.



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 many
of them. For this purpose it is requiring freshmen to come to the University for
the week before classes begin. The activities of Freshman Week are designed to
help the freshman get a right start.
The period of September 16th to 22nd, 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:
A. The use of the library.
B. How to study.
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 and learn how to go
about their university work and how to profit by the opportunities for recrea-
tion and other activities in addition to their studies.
A detailed program of Freshman Week will be supplied each applicant for
A strict attendance check will be kept on all Freshman Week conferences.
Absences will be charged as class absences. The University reserves the right
to refuse admission to any student who wilfully absent himself from any of
these conferences


1. Credentials should be submitted as
soon as possible after the close of the spring
term, and in no case, later than September
1, 1931.
2. Students who do not observe this
regulation 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-

Brief summarized statements of the courses of study offered by the University
of Florida, together with the degree to which each leads, are listed below.
The University does not issue a complete catalog of courses in one volume, but
a full outline of each of these courses of study, together with descriptions of the
subject matter courses which they include, will be found in the announcement
of the college or school in which the course of study is offered.
These announcements may be obtained by addressing the Registrar, Uni-
versity of Florida, Gainesville, Florida.
The course of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts Degree (commonly re-
ferred to as the A.B. degree).-This is a four-year course in which the human-
ities 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, history, and mathematics are required of every student
electing this course, and to insure some understanding 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 additional
work in natural science if he so desires.
The course of study leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree (commonly
called the B.S. 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 method 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 knowledge of scientific writings from other countries. The candidate
for the B.S. degree is also expected 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.-Many students intending to study
law desire the thorough training offered by one of the foregoing courses. This
has been made possible by granting the substitution of a fixed amount of law
credit 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 be conferred only after the candidate has satisfactorily
completed the second year of law. Attention should be called to the fact that
one of the requirements for the degree Juris Doctor is that the candidate possess
the A.B. degree or its equivalent.
The Pre-Law Course.-Two years of college work are required as a pre-
requisite to the study of law and in order to provide the most suitable two-year
course with which to fulfill this requirement the faculty of the College of Arts
and Sciences adopted the pre-law curriculum. This curriculum was accepted,
however, only after careful study of the entrance requirements and recommen-
dations of the law schools of the United States, the committee making the study
having the Dean of the College of Law of the University of Florida as its chair-
man. The prescribed courses have been reduced to a minimum consistent with


a good foundation for the study of law, thus insuring the student a wide range of
electives from which he may select courses that will meet his own interests and
The Pre-Medical Course.-A two-year pre-medical course is offered to meet
the requirements of some medical schools. Students wishing to attend medical
schools requiring more than two years of pre-medical training can meet the
requirement by taking the two-year pre-medical course here described, following
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, however, 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 leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.-
A student may major in any department of the College, or in Agricultural Edu-
cation. He must, by the beginning of his junior year select his major, in which
he will be required to take not less than 15 nor more than 30 hours. The head of
the department in which he majors becomes his adviser; with the advice and
consent of the adviser, subjects for study are chosen. The departments in which
majors may be chosen are Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering,
Agronomy, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Agricultural Chemistry, Entomol-
ogy and Plant Pathology, Horticulture, and Landscape Design.
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. They are expected to take not less than
18 nor more than 21 hours per week.
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 at once 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 till four semesters
have been completed.
Certificates will be granted on completion of courses undertaken.
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 for 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 Department of Agricul-
ture, 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 Di-
vision 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 Agricul-
ture, 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' salary and expenses.
The program for extension work provides for twelve active projects as fol-
lows: administrative, publications, county agents, boys' club work, home demon-
stration work, dairy husbandry, poultry husbandry, animal husbandry, agricul-
tural economics, extension schools, citrus culture, farm and home makers' clubs
for Negroes.
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 district supervisor
for men and boys' work, and a district supervisor for women 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.
Nine specialists are employed to assist the State extension programs.
The Florida National Egg Laying Contest is located at Chipley, Florida. It
is maintained by a State appropriation and under the direction of the Agricul-
tural Extension Division. The contest has a housing capacity of 100 pens of
ten birds each.
Special events.-
4-H Club Boys' Annual Meeting, University of Florida.
4-H Club Girls' Annual Meeting, State College for Women.
Extension Agents' Annual Meeting, University of Florida.
Farmers' and Fruit Growers' Week, University of Florida.



The College of Engineering offers professional four-year courses of study
in the four fields described below. The work of the freshman year is the same
for all engineering students, so that each student has the chance to choose the
branch of engineering he wishes to follow before the beginning of his sopho-
more year.
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 so that upon
graduation he will be prepared to fill such positions as are usually allotted to
young engineers in general engineering, or in the special branches such as high-
way, railroad, hydraulic, 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. Considerable time is given to problems pertaining to the generation,
transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical energy. During the
coming year additional emphasis will be given to the field of communication.
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engi-
neering.-Mechanical Engineering is a basic engineering course. Instruction
in this department is given in both theory and practice. Accuracy, neatness, and
systematic presentation is required in all class and home-study drawings and
problems. It is the aim of the course to produce engineers of independent
thought and original power. The graduate is well qualified to readily adjust
himself and give efficient service in the 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 manu-
facturing, transportation, and public utilities.
Engineering Pre-Business Course.-This course requires much of the first two
years of the work in the College of Engineering, and of the last two years in the
College of Commerce and Journalism, and upon the completion of the course
the degree Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is conferred. The
student registers in the College of Commerce and Journalism for the entire course.

A three-year course of study is offered, eighty-five semester hours being
required for the degrees of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) or Juris Doctor (J.D.).
Students with the degree of A.B., or an equivalent degree, from an approved
college or university and who maintain an average standing of B in their law
studies will be awarded the degree of Juris Doctor (J.D.).


The course leading to the Normal Diploma.-This is a two-year course which
leads to what is sometimes called the L.I. degree. This diploma is issued upon
the completion of a prescribed two-year course, and entitles the holder to a
Graduate State Certificate, valid for five years, and permits the holder to teach
through the tenth grade, those subjects in which he has specialized.
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education.-This is a
four-year course which entitles the holder 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.-This
is a four-year course which differs from that of the Bachelor of Arts in Educa-
tion in that the natural science group must be completed. This degree entitles
the holder to receive the Graduate State Certificate upon the same conditions as
those stated under the Bachelor of Arts degree.
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in
Physical Education.-This is a four-year course for those students majoring in
Physical Education. In order to receive the degree, it is necessary to complete
the course as outlined in the Bulletin. This degree also entitles the holder to
receive a Graduate State Certificate on the conditions as stated for the Bachelor
of Arts degree.
The course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Edu-
cation.-This is a four-year course offered for those students who expect to be-
come teachers of agriculture in the high schools of Florida and the southern
states. This degree also entitles the holder to receive a Graduate State Certificate
on the conditions as stated for the Bachelor of Arts degree.
The Employment Bureau.-In order to help our graduates and to be of
service to the State as a whole, a Teachers' Employment Bureau has been estab-
lished in this College at the University of Florida. This Bureau is open through-
out the year and the Director will be glad to furnish service to anyone so desiring,
free of charge.
Three-Year Course in Pharmacy.-This course leads to the diploma of Grad-
uate in Pharmacy, and requires 102 semester hours. Students cannot register
for this course after 1932.
Four-Year Course in Pharmacy.-The first three years of the four-year cur-
riculum are identical with the three-year curriculum. In the work of the fourth
year, opportunity is given for specialization in commercial pharmacy, pharma-
ceutical chemistry, pharmacognosy, or pharmacology. This course leads to the
degree Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy.
Courses are offered leading to the Degree of Master of Science in Pharmacy
under the direction of the Graduate School.
Medicinal Plant Garden.-The Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharma-
cology maintains a drug garden which serves for three purposes: (1) as a teach-
ing adjunct offering the students an opportunity to study the methods of propa-
gation, 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.
Chemistry-Pharmacy Library.-A unit of the General Library is housed in
the Chemistry Building.

The College of Commerce and Journalism offers two degrees: Bachelor of
Science in Business Administration, and Bachelor of Science in Journalism.
These degrees are granted on completion of four types of curricula; the curricu-
lum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, the curricu-
lum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in combina-
tion with Law, the curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Journalism,
and the curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Admin-
istration in combination with Engineering.
The Curriculum in Business Administration.-This course extends 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 intellectual foundation. The last
two years provide an opportunity for professional specialization in eight different
fields of business. When the student has completed his freshman and sopho-
more years, he is required to elect one of the eight groups, and adhere strictly
to that group throughout his junior and senior years. These eight groups are
arranged in such a way as to represent the principal fields of business and to
provide the student with an arrangement of courses leading to professional
specialization in the field that best fits his needs and interests.
The Curriculum in Business Administration in Combination with Law.-The
College of Commerce and Journalism combines with the College of Law in
offering a six-year program of study for students in business administration who
desire ultimately to enter the College of Law. The first three years are spent
directly in the College of Commerce and Journalism; the. last three years are
devoted to the regular course in the College of Law. When the student has
satisfactorily completed the first two years of the course in the College of Law,
he may offer these two years of law as a substitute for the fourth year in the
College of Commerce and Journalism, and receive the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Business Administration.
Curriculum in Combination with Engineering.-The College of Commerce
and Journalism offers a four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Business Administration in combination with Engineering. This
curriculum has been arranged for students who wish to prepare for executive
and selling positions in the field of manufacturing, railway and public utility
operation. The student registers in the College of Commerce and Journalism,
but takes his first two years largely in fundamental engineering subjects in the
College of Engineering.
The Curriculum in Journalism.-This course extends over a period of four
years. The technical training, embracing thirty-nine semester hours in journal-
ism, is supplanted by a broad range of training in English, history, economics,
sociology, psychology, government, and business management, in order to provide


the proper background for such dealing with the problems of complex, modern
civilization as is required of newspaper men.

The four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Archi-
tecture.-This course is for those who desire to become architects, designers,
draftsmen, building inspectors, etc. A special course may be arranged for
mature students for which a certificate is given.
The four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts.-This
course prepares a student, in progressive stages, for the fields of advertising,
design, illustration, and mural painting, and on the completion of the four-year
curriculum, a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts is granted.

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 Business
Administration, 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 University Summer Session is an integral part of the University. Five
of the seven colleges, and the Graduate School, are kept open during the summer.
These are, the College of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College
of Law, the College of Commerce and Journalism, and the College of Agriculture.
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 University of Florida, through the General Extension Division, serves
the people of the state by offering educational opportunities to those who are
removed from the campus and through numerous service functions assists in
promoting the general advancement of the people.
The Division represents the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Engi-
neering, Law, Pharmacy, Commerce and Journalism of the University, and the
Colleges 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 De-
partment offers courses by correspondence-study and in extension classes; and


short courses, community institutes and conferences are held to give opportunity
for discussion on problems confronting groups or communities. The Department
of Auditory Instruction offers cultural programs, instruction, information 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
films furnished for instruction and entertainment. The best in music is heard
in the records 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 four musical
organizations: The Military Band, the Orchestra, the Glee Club, and the Con-
vocation Choir.
The Band is made up in part of students in the freshman and sophomore
years who take military training. The Band frequently plays at athletic contests
and takes several trips a year.
The Orchestra plays at the regular Thursday morning Convocation, and
broadcasts from the University radio station once a week.
The Glee Club makes several trips a year throughout the state, and is under
the direction of the Instructor in Voice.
The Convocation Choir attends Thursday morning Convocation and assists
in the singing.
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 for. A tuition will be required of all students
taking private lessons.
Senior Infantry and Field Artillery Units.-Students who register as fresh-
men or sophomores in the Colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Pharmacy, Edu-
cation, Arts and Sciences, and the combined course in Engineering and Business
Administration in the College of Commerce and Journalism, are assigned to the:
field artillery unit; all others are assigned to the infantry unit.
The course in military science is compulsory for freshmen and sophomores
except for students in the College of law, and for 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 com-
pletion as a pre-requisite to graduation. Upon their completion, those students
recommended by the Professor of Military Science and Tactics and the Presi-
dent of the University will, upon their own application, be offered a commission
in the Officers' Reserve Corps, United States Army. An advanced course in sum-
mer-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.
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 for services which are specialized
and individual in character, such as dentistry, X-rays, board and laundry in the
student hospital, major surgery, special nurses, etc., special fees are charged. No
student, however, will be denied service because of inability to pay these fees.
The offices of the Health Service and the Students' Hospital and Dispensary
are located on the campus. The services of the Hospital and Dispensary are
available at all hours of the day and night. Physicians of the Service are in
attendance daily. The telephone call for the Hospital and Dispensary is 1020
during the day, and 541 during the night.
The facilities of the Dispensary are such that any number of students can be
given attention in a day. The normal capacity of the Hospital is 45 beds. In
emergencies, this capacity can be increased. Ample provisions are made for the
isolation of communicable diseases.
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 University
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.
There are three main lines to 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 on admission. From this record can be determined, in a large
measure, what procedure is essential to keep the student in the best physical
condition during his academic life. The following are some of the phases of
the work in the personal division:
a. Provisions for maintaining the health of normal, physically sound stu-
dents; co-operation with the Department of Physical Education regarding physi-
cal exercise; education along lines of right living; safeguarding of environment.
b. Protection of the physically sound students from communicable diseases
that are continually creeping into the University; 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 dis-
eases; 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 Students' Hospital. To this Hospital any
student may be admitted upon the recommendation of the University Physician.
To all patients in the Hospital the staff will furnish medical and nursing services.
e. Reconstruction and reclamation: corrections of defects, advice, and treat-
ment of all subnormals.
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.
The University Library is now situated in the first unit of the Library Build-
ing. The main reading room is on the second floor where are shelved the books,
the Reserve Books, the Reference Collection, books on literature and art. The
main stacks are on the lower floor with tables, accommodating about sixty (60)
students. A small periodical room has been opened up on this floor bringing
together in one room current periodicals and newspapers.
The Library receives six hundred seventy-eight magazines of a general and
scientific nature, and several newspapers from the larger cities of the country.
Many daily and weekly state newspapers send complimentary copies to the
Library. The files are added to each year, by gift and by purchase as funds
will permit, with the aim of building up a large research collection.
The number of bound volumes in the General Library amounts to 60,472.
The number of bound volumes in each of the other Libraries on the campus is
as follows:
Extension Library ............................... 6,536
Law Library ................................... 10,098
Florida State Museum .......................... 2,321
Experiment Station Library ....................... 7,111

Being a government depository, the Library receives each year a large num-
ber of bound and unbound government documents.
The library strives to be of assistance to the students, encouraging them in
their reading and assisting them in obtaining the material they desire. Bibli-
ographies are prepared, references are found, help is given in the use of the
catalog and indexes. For debate work, special shelves are set aside and material
assembled. An instructive lecture on the use of the Library is given to the
freshmen in the fall.
The stacks, open to all, present an unusual opportunity for encouragement
of wider reading. Book displays of various kinds call particular attention to
titles sometimes overlooked.
The Library is open from 7:45 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. every week day except
Saturday. Saturday it closes at 5:00 P.M. On Sundays it is open from 2:00
to 5:00 P.M.


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 University.
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.
The Office of the Dean of Students has to do with that phase of the University
administration which deals with students and student activities. In general a
great deal of the work of this office has to do with student organizations and
groups of students, but an attempt is always made to work in conformity with
the personnel point of view which seeks to treat students as individuals. Special
attention is given to those students who need ony help in matters of adjustment
of courses, housing conditions, employment, scholarships, delinquent grades, etc.
We appreciate communications from parents relative to the work of their sons
while at the University, and will take pleasure in making every effort to secure
proper adjustment of the student to his college environment.
During Freshman Week every possible effort is made to help the incoming
freshman get started right. An entire week is given over to activities that will
guide him into the selection of the right course of study.
All scholarships and loans administered by the University pass through the
office of the Dean of Students. Information on any of these can be had at any
time. The Dean of Students is Chairman of this committee.
Any student making a grade below C for the month is required to interview
his dean and the Dean of Students.
The conduct and supervision of the dormitories is under the direction of the
Dean of Students. Each section is under the direction of a senior who acts as


A complete list of all off-campus rooming and boarding houses is kept in the
office of the Dean of Students. These houses are inspected periodically and in-
formation on them can be had at any time.
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.
The Bureau of Placements, which is under the direction of the Dean of Stu-
dents, seeks to help all graduates in securing positions.
Parents and students are urged to avail themselves of the facilities offered for
securing help on all matters which come within the scope of the activities of this
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 dur-
ing 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 assignment:
a. The scholastic record of the student will be taken into consideration.
No student failing as much as six hours will be considered.
b. Preference will be given to those having experience.
c. The financial condition of the student will be 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 $100 per year.
Unskilled labor is paid for at the present time at the rate of thirty cents per
hour; skilled labor is proportionately compensated. Under-graduate laboratory
assistants are paid by the hour according to the following schedule:
Sophomores ................... ...................$ .35
Juniors ................................ ............... .40
Seniors .................... ....................... 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, nor is it given to one who fails in any study. Application
for employment should also be made to the Dean of Students.



Prospective students are advised to be vaccinated against small-pox, and to be
inoculated against typhoid fever. Unless a certificate is presented showing suc-
cessful vaccination within five years, students will be vaccinated after registration.


The University of Florida, through its Committee on Admissions, reserves the
right to deny admission to students who are not residents of the State of Florida.


Admission to the schools and colleges of the University which accept students
directly from the high school is either by certificate, or examination, or both.
The methods are described below.


The candidate must present a certificate of graduation from an accredited
preparatory school. Certificates representing examinations given by the College
Entrance Board or the New York Regents are likewise accepted. Applicants are
admitted on these certificates provided they offer nine required units: 3 in English,
1 in algebra, 1 in plane geometry, 1 in history, 1 in science, 2 as specified by the
individual colleges; and offer at least 15 acceptable units.
No condition will be permitted.


Non-graduates of accredited or non-accredited high schools, presenting at
least 15 acceptable units, including the nine required units as listed above, are
admitted provided they successfully pass the entrance examinations in the sub-
jects presented for admission.
Graduates of non-accredited high schools presenting the specified units are
admitted provided they successfully pass entrance examinations in the following
English-Rhetoric and composition; American and English lit-
Mathematics-First year algebra, plane geometry
History-one unit
Science-one unit
A college aptitude test will ordinarily be given in lieu of the above examination.
Entrance examinations will be given on the dates published in the University
Calendar. Students failing to take the examinations on these dates will be re-
quired to pay the special examination fee of $5.



All Florida high schools are furnished with preparatory record blanks. Stu-
dents 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

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 ad-
mission 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.

College of Law.-In the College of Law the tuition fees are $40 per year, or
$20 per semester, payable in advance.
Non-resident.-The non-resident tuition fee is $100 per year or $50 per sem-
ester, payable in advance. This fee is charged all non-resident students, includ-
ing those pursuing graduate work. No person is eligible to register in the Uni-
versity 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. The residence of a minor shall follow that of his legal
College of Commerce and Journalism.-A special fee of $10 per year, payable
in advance is charged all students regularly enrolled in this college. One dollar
per semester-hour is charged other students who elect the following courses: all
courses in Journalism and all courses in Business Administration not marked "E."

A room reservation fee of $10 is charged for dormitory space. This fee is
retained as a deposit against damage until the student gives up his room, when
refund, on return of key and less any charge for damage incurred during his
residence there, is made.
Registration and Contingent Fee.-This fee of $7.50 per year is charged all
students, including those regularly enrolled in the graduate school.
SStudent Activity Fee.-This fee of $23.60, payable on entrance, was voted by
the students and approved by the Board of Control. These fees are used to
foster and maintain athletic sports, student publications, literary and debating
societies, and other student activities. All students are required to pay this fee,
except that students regularly enrolled in the Graduate School may be excused
if they do not wish to participate in any of the student privileges covered by
this fee.
Military Fee.-This fee of $1 is charged all first and second year men regis-
tered for military science to protect against loss of government ordnance.
Locker Fee.-This fee of $1.50 is charged all students for use of lockers and
supplies furnished in gymnasium and swimming pool.
'Infirmary Fee.-All students are charged an infirmary fee of $9 per year. This
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 major operation. To secure this medical service, the
students must report in person to the nurse 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. All students will be given a careful physical examination
at the beginning of the sessions. Graduate students, not married, and living in
the dormitories or rooming houses are required to pay this fee.
The total of Special Fees, as listed above, including Military Fee for freshmen
and sophomores, is $42.60; or for juniors and seniors, is $41.60.



Laboratory Fees.-A small fee is required in advance for each course that
includes laboratory work, to cover cost of consumable material, wear and tear
of apparatus, and similar items. The amount of the fee varies with the different
courses, in no case exceeding $5 per semester for any one course.
Breakage Fees.-A fee of $5 will be required for each student using a locker
and laboratory apparatus in the Departments of Chemistry, Pharmacy, Biology,
and Electrical Engineering; this fee is $3 in the Department of Physics. This
deposit will be made with the Cashier in the Business Manager's Office, and
refund will be made on it once a year, when the student has checked in his appa-
ratus to the satisfaction of the department concerned. No charge will be made
from this fee for materials used, or for normal wear and tear, as this is covered
in the General Laboratory Fee.
Diploma Fee.-A fee of $5 is charged all candidates for degrees.

Late Registration Fee.-A fee of $5 is charged all students who do not com-
plete their registration on the dates set by the Council and published in the
Calendar. Registration is not complete until all University bills are paid, and
any who fail to meet their obligations are not regarded as students of the
Non-Resident.-A fee of $10 in addition to regular fee for this will be charged
all students registering incorrectly. The burden of proof as to residence is with
the student.
Library Fines.-A fine of two cents a day is charged for each book in general
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
five cents an hour or fraction of an hour until they are returned. No book may
be checked out if the fine is over twenty-five cents.

No refund of any fees, except unused portions of laboratory and breakage
fees, will be made after the student has attended classes for three days. The
Registration and Contingent Fee of $7.50 is not refundable.
The Room Reservation Fee.-The room reservation fee, less any damage
charges against the student, and on return of key, is refunded when the student
gives up his room. If he accepts assignment, he is required to stay at least
a semester.
Students graduating at the close of the first semester, and having paid all
fees, will be refunded $13 of the matriculation fees unless a copy of the "Semi-
nole" is requested, in which case only $9 will be refunded.
Remittance.-All remittance should be made to the Business Manager, Uni-
versity of Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

The three dormitories at the University of Florida will accommodate about
five hundred students. Generally speaking, preference is given to freshmen apply-


ing for rooms in these dormitories. The authorities believe that except in case
of very special reasons it is better for a freshman to room in one of the dormi-
tories for at least the first semester. Upperclassmen reservations will be accepted
with this understanding. Applications should be made as early as possible, since
accommodation in the dormitories is limited to five hundred students. Applica-
tion must be accompanied by the Room Reservation Fee of $10. If a room has
been assigned, no refund will be made later than September 10. Students not
assigned a room will be entitled to a refund upon request. Students contracting
for rooms when assigned will not be permitted a refund if they withdraw 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.
The new dormitory was intended for freshmen exclusively, and is strictly fire-
proof. The rooms are all equipped with lavatories and built-in chifforobes. All
rooms are partly furnished, and have adjacent bath rooms with lavatories and hot
and cold showers. The furniture consists of two bedsteads and mattresses, chiffo-
robes, study tables, and chairs. The students are required to provide pillows.
bedding, towels, and toilet articles for their own use. The doors of the rooms are
provided with Yale locks. Keys for dormitory rooms will be issued students
against the Room Reservation fees.
The suites in the new dormitory consist of study and bed rooms, accommo-
dating two. Those on the first, second, and third floors may be contracted for at
the rate of $40 per student per semester, and those on the fourth floor at the rate
of $36 per student per semester. There is a limited number of suites available
for one person, which may be had at an additional cost of $4 per semester. There
are several suites accommodating three, at the rate of $36 per student per semester.
All suites in Thomas and Buckman Halls are available at the rate of $24.50
per student per semester, except that in Section "D" of Thomas Hall, recently
renovated, prices are the same as for rooms on the fourth floor of the New
Janitor service includes the care of rooms by maids, under the supervision of
a competent housekeeper.
The government 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
policy has been adopted of giving the President of the Student Body a room in
the dormitory and making him head monitor. All questions of government come
from the monitors, through him, to the Dean of Students.


Board may be had at the University Commons at a cost of $22.50 per calendar
month. We have a cafeteria service on a modified plan. Students living off the
campus, and the faculty, may procure monthly tickets for $18.90 per month on a
four-weeks basis when purchased in advance, with a refund of 50% for all unused
meal tickets at the end of the monthly period. To students living in the dormi-
tories we will allow an additional discount on the purchase of cafeteria tickets.


The annual expense for rooms and board may be arranged as follows:
New Dormitory Old Dormitory
First, second and third floors Fourth floor All floors
$ 80 $ 72 $ 49
Board 160 160 160

$240 $232 $209
In view of the location it is considered desirable that students rooming in
the dormitories will take their meals at the cafeteria. Exceptions will be made
to the rule only on request of parents, and for good and sufficient reason.
Board and rooms near the Campus.-Board and rooms in private homes-o
Gainesville may be procured at rates of $35 to $45 per student petmonth, de-
pending upon the accommodations and proximity to the Campus. A large
number of rooming houses, as well as cafeterias, lunch rooms, and dining rooms,
are located within walking distance, and students may secure any class of
accommodations they desire. The office of the Dean of Students maintains a list of
boarding and rooming houses near the campus and in the city, and Mr. R. C.
Beaty, Assistant to the Dean, will be glad to aid students in securing a com-
fortable location. For a copy of this list and advance information, address Dean
of Students, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

The University of Florida is peculiarly fortunate in the number of scholar-
ships and loans which are open to students. Generally speaking, these scholar-
ships and loans are administered directly by the donors. We have, however, a
Committee on Scholarships, of which the Dean of Students is Chairman. This
Committee collects all information relative to vacancies, basis of award, value,
and other pertinent facts and will be able to supply this information to interested
students. The Committee also collects information on applicants and supplies
this information to the donors. In some instances, the Committee has been
given authority to make the awards direct.
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 $200.00 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-these 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 schol-
arship 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 amount of funds spent on trainees
at the University of Florida during the present year will amount to approx-
imately $100.00 per student. Inquiries for these scholarships should be addressed
to Mr. Claud M. Andrews, State Supervisor of Vocational Rehabilitation.
Rotary Loag Fund.-The University here wishes to record its appreciation
of the great interest shown in higher education by the Rotarians of Florida,

Lodge'in the various cities of the State, and are handled by the Grand Lodge

become a member by subscribing to its purpose. Two secretaries having ex-
tensive experience with the problems of students are available at all times for
counsel and help.
Fraternities.-Twenty national social fraternities have established chapters
at the University; most of them have already built handsome chapter houses
