WELCOME TO THE FRESHMEN


It is a genuine pleasure to welcome new students to the campus of the University
of Florida because we know that here are illimitable opportunities if the newcomer
will seize them.
It has been often said no institution ever educated anybody. Opportunities may
be provided but students must avail themselves of these opportunities by their own
initiative and industry. We realize that many students are perplexed with problems
at the beginning and upon a solution of these depends their happiness and success
at the University. The success or failure of your career may depend upon your
experience in your first year at this University. Every possible assistance is provided
for a solution of the problems that confront you. More especially the Office of the
Dean of Students undertakes to counsel with those who are in need of help and advice.
We hope that such student will find his sojourn here to be one of industry, happi-
ness and success.
JOHN J. TIGERT, President.







GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. All men intending to enter the freshman class must be present for the first
session at 10:00 a. m. on Wednesday, September 16, in the Auditorium. Counselors
and student leaders will be introduced to each group at this meeting.
2. Be sure to read carefully the description of all activities for the week.
3. The program for each college is on a separate page. Follow carefully the
program for your college.
4. Attendance will be checked at each meeting. Absences will be counted as
class cuts. The University authorities reserve the right to drop from the rolls any
student absent from any scheduled activity. A late registration fee will be charged
all students not present at the 10:00 o'clock meeting, Wednesday morning.
5. Locate your counselor's office and your student leader and call upon them
for any help you need.
6. The activities of the week are designed to help you get a good start; take
part in them in the right spirit, and we feel sure you will be repaid for the effort.
7. The Office of the Dean of Students is in Room 106, Peabody Hall. You will
be welcome here at any time during your stay at the University. This office exists
for the purpose of helping college men find solutions for difficult problems.
8. Don't hunt trouble. Endeavor to fit yourself into college life with the least
amount of friction. You will find that your instructors really desire to help you
and are interested in your problems. Feel free to ask questions about matters
pertaining to your schedule and courses.

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

REGISTRATION:
Registration for all freshmen will take place in the New Gym. You must be
very careful in registering to get class cards, sections and courses of study exactly
correct. Detailed instruction will be given at the time of registration. Do not
hesitate to ask questions of your counselor or student leader on matters pertaining
to your registration.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION:
Physical examination will take place in the New Gym. You will be given a
thorough physical examination by competent physicians. You should make careful
note of any physical defect pointed out and follow instructions given.

INTERVIEW WITH COUNSELORS:
The purpose of this interview is to supply personnel information which will be
valuable to the University authorities in helping you to become better adjusted to
university life. Your counselor will be in his office and will take pleasure in advising
with you on matters in which you need help.

STUDENT ACTIVITY PERIOD:
This period is in charge of outstanding student leaders of the student body who
have made good in university life. They will give you information on all extra-
curricula activities. You will do well to give attention to this period.

ENGINEERING QUALIFYING TEST:
All students applying for admission to the College of Engineering are required
to take this test before being admitted. The test is on basic subjects which are neces-
sary for the engineering course. The purpose is to test closely your training in these
subjects in order to avoid taking students whose lack of training would render failure
almost certain.







ENGLISH PLACEMENT TEST:
These tests are on the foundations in the use of English. Such matters as spell-
ing, capitalization, punctuation, correct use of verb and noun forms, and the dis-
crimination in the meaning of words are included. Those students who show them-
selves especially deficient in this work will be required to take an extra semester of
work along the lines indicated before being permitted to register for English 101.
No college credit will be given for this extra semester of work. It is important that
you be at your best for this test. The record you make will determine your classi-
fication in the English Department. Bring TWO PENCILS. Note books will be
furnished.
PSYCHOLOGICAL TEST:
It is important that you be in the best of condition when you take this test. Your
record in this test will be used by your instructors and your dean during your college
career, and perhaps by your employer after leaving college. Bring TWO PENCILS.

CONFERENCE WITH THE DEAN :
At this conference you ought to determine, as far as this session is concerned,
whether or not you will remain in the college you selected at the beginning of Fresh-
man Week. If you want to make a change after this explanation of the purposes and
requirements of the college, you will need to consult your counselor and student
leader before joining another group.

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

LIBRARY :
The Library is a very systematic as well as efficient organization, and you will
need to know at once how to use it to the best advantage. A great deal of your
reference work will be done in the Library. There will be demonstrations given to
your group.

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS:
At the conclusion of this hour, the division into groups, and assignments of
counselors and student leaders will take place.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES :
In order that freshmen may be kept in touch with university life and acquainted
with traditions and customs of the campus, all members of this class will be required
to attend Assembly in the Auditorium once a month for the first semester. The first
two of these assemblies will be given over to the members of the Honor Court who
will see to it that every phase of it is thoroughly explained.

COLLEGE NIGHT:
A new phase of Freshman Week is to be started this year. In order that the
schedule of activities may not seem too heavy, we are going to have one nieht of fun.
The program of College Night will be composed of music, by Banzai Currie's Orches-
tra, songs, yells and a number of skits put on by University talent. We hope that
the Class of '35 will be ready to put on a skit. This program is in charge of the
0. D. K. fraternity.

SUGGESTIONS FOR EFFECTIVE STUDY
I. GENERAL SUGGESTIONS
1. Strive to keep your body rested, for it is impossible to make an impression
upon a fatigued mind.
2. Take intervals of rest at least ten minutes after finishing a unit of study.
3. Sleep and exercise regularly.
4. Eat the kind and quantity of food that will give you a maximum of energy.
5. Select the places where you can study with the minimum number of inter-
ruptions, and then use these places regularly.
6. Start studying immediately at the specified time; do not waste energy
getting ready to begin.

II. THE PROPER APPROACH TO STUDY
1. Each subject has a certain relationship to your other subjects and to your
general college training. Decide what the relationship is and make up
your mind that it is worth while to do satisfactory work in the course.
2. Have confidence in your ability but back it up with fixed hours for study.
Make the changing of your schedule an exception rather than the rule.
3. Remember that concentration depends upon your interest, attention and
association of ideas.
4. Memory consists mainly in increasing the number and closeness of asso-
ciations among facts. It involves impression, retention, recall and recog-
nition. It is well to remember to aim to learn facts permanently. In this
way you will retain the material much better.
5. Review the work of the class as soon as possible after leaving the classroom.
This helps to fix the ideas in your mind.

III. READING ASSIGNMENTS
1. Recall what you know about the subject.
a. Go back to the previous lesson and recall what you studied and what
was brought out in class.
b. Constantly relate the new material to the old, and remember that mem-
ory demands the association of ideas.
2. Study the assignment as a whole in order to get the writer's complete line
of thought. After reading the entire reference close your book, make your
outline on paper, and then review the text quickly to see what points you
have omitted. If you have or find special difficulties you can solve them in
the light of the whole.
3. If you find your mind wandering, pause in your reading and recall what
you have read to see if you are getting the thought.
4. Learn when and how to read rapidly.
a. In sentence units regard especially the beginning and end of a sentence.
b. In paragraph units notice especially the first and last sentences.
c. In chapter units note the first and last paragraphs of a chapter.

IV. How TO UNDERSTAND THE LECTURE
1. The Form:
a. Decide upon an outline form which will be most useful to you.
b. Leave a wide margin in order that you may add other material and
comments. This helps in the association of ideas.
2. a. Write down the subject of the lecture.
b. Listen attentively for the main facts, especially those which are new
and write them down.
c. Discover the point of view of the lecturer and then record any objections
or questions which may occur to you. Raise these questions either in
class discussion or in conference with the instructor.







d. Go through your notes as soon as possible after the lecture and use
your margin to jot down correlations with class discussion, reference
reading, laboratory work, etc.
e. Before the next lecture always read the preceding notes in order to get
the continuity of thought.

V. EXAMINATIONS
1. Preparation:
a. Thorough preparation from day to day is the best preparation for the
examination both in economy of time and also in energy.
b. Review all the materials of the course. This may include lecture notes,
laboratory notes, reference reading and class discussion, and strive to
see the relationship of each to the other.
c. Organize the material of the course in such a way (perhaps by topics)
that you comprehend clearly its content and meaning and test yourself
to see whether you can use the material learned.
2. Writing:
a. Read the examination as a whole, making sure that you understand
the meaning of each question.
b. Plan your answers in outline form and then write.

ABSENCES
A. For each semester credit hour in any course one absence is not reported to
the Registrar, except as provided in Rule F below.
NOTE: It is expected that these non-reported absences shall, in most cases, be
sufficient to take care of necessary absences due to sickness and extra-curricula
activities. In no case may a student expect that a penalty due to deliberate absence
or absences shall be suspended. If absence for sickness and under the Nine-Day
Rule are not sufficient in themselves to incur a penalty, but such absences together
with only one deliberate absence are sufficient to incur a penalty, the Committee on
Attendance has now power to suspend the carrying out of the penalty.
B. NO EXCUSES WILL BE GRANTED FOR ABSENCES.
C. Members of the faculty are required to report absences, in excess of the
non-reported absences, daily, as incurred, to the Registrar's office. Blanks will be
provided by the Registrar for this purpose.
D. For the first eight (8) absences reported to the Registrar in any one semester
(counting absences in all courses) and for each additional four (4) absences so
reported, one hour of negative credit will be imposed. For exceptions, see Rules
E and H below.
E. A student will have two reported absences cancelled for each honor point
in excess of the number of semester credit hours for which he was registered during
the semester. Excess honor points may be used to cancel absences only in the
semester in which they are earned. The use of honor points to cancel absences
does not prevent their use for graduation.
F. Students obtaining more than the equivalent of three full weeks of absences,
including absences in Rule A, in any one course will be dropped from that course
with a grade of E. As soon as the number of absences reaches this point, the faculty
members must report to the Registrar.
In non-credit courses where the total absences are equal to or more than 20
percent of the number of class meetings, the student will be required to drop the
class and will be given a grade of E.
G. Upon proper petition, any penalty or penalties incurred solely by excessive
absences due to sickness, absences under the Nine-Day Rule, or other unavoidable
causes shall be considered individually by the Committee on Attendance which has
authority to act, subject to the limitations imposed by the Note in Rule A above.
In case a student's latest reported grade in a course is sufficient to offset enough
absences by Rule E, the Chairman of the Committee will have authority to continue
him in the course, even though his absences are more than the equivalent of three
weeks. Students who, in the opinion of the Committee, have had excessive absences
in one semester may be continued on probation in a course or courses and later
dropped if the probation is violated. The Registrar, the student and the dean of
the college concerned shall be notified of such probation.
H. For the administration of these rules, a Summer Session shall count as a
semester. In interpreting Rule F for the Summer Session, three times the number
of credits to be gained will be the maximum number of absences allowed for a
single course.
I. Each semester is to be considered as a separate unit in administering these
rules.
J. Each absence during the twenty-four hours (excluding Sundays) immediately
preceding or following a holiday shall be counted as two absences. Appeal from
this rule may be addressed to the Committee on Attendance, which has authority
to act.
K. Students who, in the opinion of the Committee, have had excessive absences
during a semester may be placed on probation by the Committee on Attendance
during the succeeding semester. Should the student violate the terms of probation,
the Committee may drop him from the University.
Rules applying to dismissal for failure in studies shall also apply to dismissal
for absences.







L. Absences from Military Science:
1. Classes: Same regulations as apply to other courses.
2. Drill and Dress Parade: In order to make drill and dress parade a success,
students are expected to attend all formations. It is obvious that when any large
number is absent, the depleted ranks materially interfere with efficient instructions;
and so it happens that those present are the ones most penalized. Therefore, all
absences are required to be made up before the close of each semester. Should any
student be absent six (6) times during a semester, without approval from proper
authority, he will be placed on probation and so notified. If he is absent thereafter,
he will be reported to the Registrar and will be notified by him that he has been
dropped from the University. Any student so dropped may have his case reviewed
by the Committee on Military Affairs, but must make application for such review
in person within forty-eight hours (not including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays)
from date on which he was dropped.
The following are the Student Leaders who will have charge of the Student
Activity Period:
SELWYN IVES, President of the Student Body.
GEORGE LLOYD PATTEN, Vice-President of the Student Body.

THE HONOR SYSTEM
For a majority of the freshmen entering the University of Florida the Honor
System will be a factor with which they are little familiar. It is of greatest impor-
tance to the freshmen, and to the system as well, that they become at once informed
of the provisions of the Honor Code, and of the principles underlying the Honor
System, and that they enter immediately into the spirit of this institution. Attention
to these matters will no only secure the incoming freshman against serious misfor-
tune which might result from unfamiliarity with them, but will also fit him for
adapting himself readily to the ideals of the Honor System.
The Honor Code is as follows:
The offenses hereinafter set forth shall be dealt with by the Honor Court after
the manner provided in the Constitution of the Student Body of the University of
Florida:
1. Cheating, giving or receiving any manner of aid in connection with a test
or examination in any college course.
2. Failure to report any violation of 1 or 3 hereof.
3. Stealing.
4. The passing of worthless checks.
If the court finds the accused guilty, and he makes no immediate appeal, the
court shall in its discretion either
a. reprimand and warn the culprit, if there are mitigating circumstances and the
violation is not flagrant and it is the first offense; or
b. suspend, if it is a clear case and the culprit pleads guilty and it is the first
offense; or
c. expel, if the violation is flagrant and willful, or if it is the second offense.
The Honor System as it operates at the University of Florida is based on the
theory which underlies all of our law and is fundamental to our conception of justice
everywhere: that a man is presumed to be honorable until proved otherwise. The
system further assumes a student body worthy of the trust which is placed in it. Its
appeal is to men of integrity and self-reliance; it is an Honor System for honest men.
The Honor System presents a standard of conduct that should appeal to that
which is noblest in a student's character, and its purpose is to form definite concepts
of honesty and fairness. Its fundamental motive is, through the best of character
training, to bring out the best that is in a college man.
It is sincerely hoped that every freshman who registers in the University of
Florida will enter with a firm resolve to cooperate with an Honor System which
eminently merits his support.
