The Administration Building

You'll Be a "Gator"

You'll become a "Gator" when you get to the Univer-
sity of Florida campus. And you'll live in "Gatorland."
You'll cheer yourself hoarse at the "Gator Growl" on
the night preceding Homecoming. And you'll scream
"Gator Bait" at your opponents on the gridiron at the
next day's game, as you cheer the "Fighting Gators" on
to another football victory.
You'll give the same loyal support to Gator basketeers,
Gator track and field teams, Gator baseballers. And
you'll be ably supported by the Gator Band, as the Gator
Pep Club leads in Gator songs and Gator yells.
Your campus newspaper is named "The Florida
Alligator" during the regular school term and the "Sum-
mer Gator" in July and August.
Chances are, you'll have a miniature Gator on your
study desk. In fact, gators appear on just about every-
thing-pennants, stationery, notebooks.
The story is that the name originated 47 years ago
when Austin Miller, a Jacksonville lawyer, first suggested
that the Florida football team be known as "The Alli-
Mr. Miller's father operated a drug store and sta-
tionery shop in Gainesville and in the fall of 1907 he
wanted to order a new supply of pennants and banners.
After examining sample pennants displaying the Yale
Bulldog and the Princeton Tiger, the Millers realized
that Florida had no distinguishing mascot.
Mr. Miller suggested the alligator, because no other
school was using it, and because this character was native
to the state. The pennant manufacturer said he'd never
seen an alligator, so Mr. Miller furnished him with a
picture of one from the library of the University of
In 1908 orange alligators first appeared on banners
and pennants in the Miller store. The symbol became a
S "hit" with the student body-so Gators we are and con-
tinue to be-and we have a proud tradition.

be University of Florid.

Ranking among the nation's top
25 universities, the University of
of Florida is the largest educational
institution in the Southeast. Approxi-
mately 10,000 students are enrolled
in classes on the Gainesville campus,
with another 26,000 reached by exten-
sion classes, correspondence courses,
and conferences and institutes. Most
of the citizens of Florida see one or
more of the 90,000 films, recordings,
books, and pamphlets lent each year
by the General Extension Division.
A forty million dollar plant occu-
pies the 570-acre Gainesville campus,
supplemented with 9,000 acres in
several counties, including 13 agri-
cultural experiment stations, a bio-
logical station and a forest of 2,000

102 Years of Service
The University's first college-
Arts and Sciences-opened in 1853.
Following the Morrill Act, a few
years later, the colleges of Agricul-
ture and Engineering and the Agri-
cultural Experiment Station were
established. In 1905 the Buckman
Act designated the University of Flor-
ida as a school of men; in 1947 the
University became co-educational.
The Florida State Legislature of
1949 authorized a College of Medi-
cine and a College of Nursing, to be
situated on the Gainesville campus.
The Medical Science unit, to be
known as Miller Hall and costing
$5,000,000, is scheduled for comple-
tion in the summer of 1956. First
students in medicine and nursing will
start classes in the new building in
September, 1956.

The Medical Science building is
the first unit of the J. Hillis Miller
Health Center, which will assume
leadership in the improvement of
health for the people of Florida.
When the building program is com-
pleted, it is expected that the Health
Center will include the College of
Medicine, a Teaching Hospital with
ambulatory and outpatient clinics, a
College of Nursing, College of Phar-
macy, School of Dentistry, and vari-
ous research units.
Because Florida is the natural gate-
way to the West Indies and the
countries of Central and South
America, the University of Florida
has a deep interest in Latin-American
affairs. This is reflected in its School
of Inter-American Studies established
in 1951, an administrative unit which
coordinates programs and assists
students who are preparing for trade,
cultural, and diplomatic relation-
ships with the Latin-American coun-
The undergraduate student may
pursue the Latin-American Area
Studies Program in the College
of Arts and Sciences or the curricu-
lum in Foreign Trade in the College
of Business Administration. Through
the Graduate School, the student may
earn a Master of Arts, with a major
in Inter-American Study areas, and
a Doctor of Philosophy with the same
maj or.
Emphasizing the high national
standing of the University of Florida
is the fact that in June 1954 the Uni-
versity was working on research con-
tracts totalling two and a third mil-
lion dollars. This figure includes
contractual research projects only,

and does not cover research done by
the University and the Agricultural
Experiment Station under regular
state and Federal appropriation
A Central Location
The University is situated on the
western fringe of. Gainesville, a city
of 38,000. Ceritrally located, the
city is served by the Atlantic Coast
Line Railroad, the Seaboard Air Line
Railway, Florida Greyhound and
Tamiami Trailways Bus Lines, and
Eastern Air Lines.
Gainesville is a modern and well
governed municipality, with over 40
churches of various denominations.
The city has a daily and a weekly
newspaper, three AM and one FM
radio broadcasting stations. Situated
in the rolling highlands of central
Florida, midway between the Atlantic
Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, the
city is fortunate in its natural en-
dowments. Its temperature ranges
throughout the year are those of semi-
tropical climate, the mean average
temperature being 69.9 degrees. Ex-
tremes of heat are unknown and frost
rarely occurs.
In addition to its moderate climate,
Gainesville offers many other advant-
ages to students of the University.
Well known as a winter resort, it is
excellently equipped with a wide va-
riety of recreational facilities. The
city golf course is within easy reach
of the campus, and swimming and
boating accommodations are avail-
able at nearby springs and rivers.
The lakes in the vicinity abound in
freshwater fish, while the Atlantic
Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, meccas
of deep-sea fishermen, are within a
two hours' drive.

Organization of the University
Direct supervision over the Univer-
sity is vested in the Board of Control,

composed of seven citizens from dif-
ferent parts of the state, appointed
by the Governor for four-year terms.
All actions of the Board of Control
are subject to approval by the State
Board of Education, composed of the
Governor, Secretary of State, Treas-
urer, Attorney General, and Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction.
University affairs are administered
by the President with the advice and
assistance of the Academic Council
and the Administrative Council.
The legislative body of the Univer-
sity is the University Senate.
The following schools and colleges
make up the University:

The Lower Division
The University College

The Upper Division
The College of Agriculture
The College of Architecture and
Allied Arts
The College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Business Adminis-
The College of Education

The School of Journalism and
The College of Law
The College of Medicine
The College of Nursing
The College of Pharmacy
The College of Physical Education
and Health
The Graduate School
The Division of Music, the Division
of Military Science and Tactics, the
Division of Air Science and Tactics,
and the Department of Required
Physical Education are special in-
structional units which serve all col-
leges and schools.

ICoosing a Colege

The high school graduate who
must obtain a good education on a
limited budget finds the answer to
what would appear to be an insoluble
problem in his state university. A
state-supported school occupies a
unique position in that it can pro-
vide education at a low cost to the
individual student without sacrificing
the quality of its instruction. In fact,
the state university usually offers a
superior education.
The Florida student attending the
University of Florida pays, in his
$75 per semester registration fee,
only a fraction of the actual cost of
his instruction-the state of Florida
bears the greater part of the cost of
faculty, equipment, and plant.
Basic living costs -meals and
room-probably vary only slightly
throughout the country, but the Flor-
ida student does save appreciably in
travel, clothing and recreation by at-
tending the centrally-located state
university at Gainesville.
The student deciding on the Uni-
versity of Florida discovers many
advantages following this decision:
1) A large university can, and
does, provide superior library, labor-
atory and classroom facilities.
2) A large university attracts and
holds a superior faculty-men who
are outstanding nationally and inter-
nationally in their specialized fields.
3) A large university offers, on one
campus, training for hundreds of dif-
ferent careers-at the University of
Florida, a faculty of 1,100 offers in-
struction in almost 350 curricula.
The student who wants a broad edu-

cation can chose from several thou-
sand individual courses.
4) Rather than being submerged
and lost in the thousands of students
on campus, the individual finds, in
reality, that the wide variety of ac-
tivities widens his vision and stimu-
lates his ambition. He finds that a
BIG university is a place of BIG
5) Associating and working with
students from other cities, states, and
countries, with students of other races
and religious creeds, the student is
better fitted for life in the world
6) The student who needs addi-
tional guidance in selecting a career
or in overcoming personal deficien-
cies finds expert counsellors, advisers,
and clinical services.
7) The outstanding student finds
a stimulating correlation between
classroom and industry by taking
part in research contracts awarded
outstanding universities. Currently,
the University of Florida has research
contracts totalling two and one-third
million dollars, several of these being
for the United States Department of

A Room in the Men's Residence Halls

In Time:
The University of Florida operates
on a "semester" system-the student
normally attending two 17-week
semesters a year, the first semester
running from the middle of Septem-
ber to the end of January, and the
second from February to early June.
The student's study load during
the semester is measured in semester
hours or credits-both mean the same
thing. For example, when the stu-
dent registers for a three-semester
hour course, it means that he will
attend three 50-minute classes in the
course for 17 weeks, and will prob-
ably have to do about six hours
of homework and study in prepara-
tion for the class meetings. If the
class is a 3-credit laboratory course,
the student may attend two 50-minute
lectures and one 3-hour lab meeting
each week.
The student may register for from
12 to 21 semester hours during a
regular semester or for about nine
hours in a summer term. If he's
enrolled for 17 hours (the average
load), he's probably taking courses
in five or six subjects, perhaps five
3-hour courses and two hours of mili-
tary. Most courses are three-hours,
although, depending upon the amount
of work to be covered, the weekly
class hours may vary from one to six.
The graduation requirement is
stated in terms of semester hours,
but in common practice, the educa-
tional period is expressed in years
of study. Normally, the student will
enroll for 17 to 21 hours for a regu-
lar semester and will receive his de-
gree in four, five, or seven years.

The Baccalaureate degree may be
earned in four years (this includes
the two years spent in University
College) in most curricula in the
Colleges of Agriculture, Architecture
and Allied Arts, Arts and Sciences,
Business Administration, Education,
Nursing, Pharmacy, and Physical
Education and Health, and the
Schools of Forestry, and Journalism
and Communications.
A candidate for the Bachelor's de-
gree in Engineering should take the
five-year curriculum unless he has the
necessary preparation in mathematics
and science to qualify for the four-
year program. He may also acceler-
ate his education by attending sum-
mer school.
The degree in Architecture requires
five years, Law a total of seven years,
and Medicine seven years, plus in-
The Master's degree may be earned
in approximately five years (a mini-
mum of one full year of study follow-
ing the Bachelor's degree is required),
and the Doctor of Education and
Doctor of Philosophy in seven years
(at least three years beyond the B.S.
In Money:
Although student expenditures vary
widely, it has been estimated that the
average Florida student spends
$1,100 a year while attending the
University. His principal expenses
for the year are:
Registration fee for Florida students
($75 in September and $75 in
February) ................................$150
Room ($49.50 to $85 per sem-
ester) may total for the year.. 170

Meals ($55 to $70 a month) .... 480
These expenses total $800 and do
not include laundry and cleaning
(which may be between $50 and $75
a year), clothing, travel to and from
home, recreation, etc. Incidentally,
non-Florida students pay $250 a
semester for registration and tuition;
thus, $350 should be added by them
to the first item in the above list.
What the student actually spends
each year is rather much up to him.
Registration fees and books are fixed
expenses, but many students are able
to hold the other items to a minimum.
Some students, taking advantage of
scholarships and part-time employ-
ment, have reduced their annual ex-
penses to $850 to $950.
The new student's first week on
campus is his most expensive, and he
should have some $150 in pocket
or deposited in the Student Bank.
He has paid his $10 room deposit
and his semester's rent in University
Residence Halls a month or so in
advance of coming to the campus;
but, at registration period, he'll need
$75 for registration fees, from $30 to

Included in the air conditioned
Student Service Center are a
post office, fountain-grill, book
store, and auditorium.

$50 for books and supplies, and a
$20 deposit on R.O.T.C. uniforms
and equipment (this deposit is re-
funded if all equipment is returned
in satisfactory condition). If the
student has made regular boarding
arrangements, he'll need funds for
his first month's board. If he's using
the University cafeteria, he'll spend
between $1.50 and $2 a day. Coupon
books with a value of $5 or $15 are
sold for use in the University food
Freshman students particularly are
urged to have sufficient funds to cover
their first year's expenses, without
having to depend on employment or
scholarships. The student's first year
at the University is a busy one, and
usually leaves little time for outside
However, some freshmen and a
number of upperclass students do
supplement their resources by part-
time employment and by scholarships.
Employment possibilities, scholar-
ships, and loan funds are discussed
in the next section of this booklet.



D A...,

Students who must have additional
funds for attending the University
of Florida, may help themselves in
three ways:
1) By securing part-time employ-
2) By securing one of several hun-
dred scholarships available
3) By securing a long-term loan.
Part-Time Employment
Twenty per cent of the students
at the University of Florida earn part
of their expenses by part-time em-
ployment-either with the University
or in the Gainesville community.
Each student employed by the Uni-
versity must have a C average and
is permitted to work 25 hours per
week. Hourly pay varies from 65
cents to $1, with monthly earnings
averaging about $50.
Students should apply for work
prior to coming to the campus, al-
though in many cases employment
will call for a subsequent personal
interview. Applications should be
addressed to the Student Employ-
ment Office, 128 Administration
Building, Gainesville.
Undergraduate scholarships vary
from $100 to $400 a year, with the
average about $200 for the school
year. A few scholarships in the
graduate field are for larger amounts.
Some of the scholarships are awarded
directly by the donor; others are
administered through the Business
Office of the University and the Com-
mittee on Student Aid, Scholarships
and Awards.

In addition, the student should
consult resources in his home com-
munity. Many civic clubs and com-
munity organizations are interested
in assisting worthy students.
Need and scholarship (as evidenced
by academic attainment) are import-
ant features in making scholarship
awards. The student's potential ca-
pacity to profit by training and to
make a reasonable return to society
are also considered.
Some scholarships mostly for
upperclassmen are available only
to students studying in the following
fields: accounting, agriculture, archi-
tecture, athletics, business adminis-
tration, education, forestry, insurance,
journalism and communications,
pharmacy, real estate, resort and club
management, and transportation.
Only a few scholarships are avail-
able to high school graduates, obtain-
able prior to entering the University.
Most donors of scholarship funds
believe that the student should com-
plete a year at the University, demon-
strating his ability to do college
work, before becoming eligible for
a scholarship.
A high school graduate may be
eligible, before completing any col-
lege work, for one of the following

competition with winners of other high
school essay contests for the scholarship
award. The scholarship amounts to $300
annually, renewal being contingent upon
the student maintaining a "C" average each

Giedd, Director of Community Develop-
ment, Florida Power Corporation, 101 Fifth
Street South, St. Petersburg, Florida.

Ann Fund (Lovetts and Table Supply Food
Stores Welfare Association)-Lovetts and
Table Supply Food Stores Welfare Asso-
ciation awards some fully-paid scholarships
(including adequate allowance for books,
supplies, etc.) to meritorious high school
graduates upon their recommendation by
not less than three prominent citizens in
the community in which the student makes
his or her home. Not more than one such
scholarship is awarded in any one year
to graduates of any one high school. Pre-
ferred consideration is given recommenda-
tions made by the Principal of the high
school attended by student, together with
the Superintendent of Schools for the

such school is located. Such scholarships

may be provided at any accredited institu-
tion of higher learning selected by the

by the Committee at the end of each
semester or scholastic term and are subject
to cancellation in the event the student
fails to pass all required subjects or in
the event the student's conduct does not
justify continuance of the scholarship

Rewards of a College Education

The decision to devote from four
to seven years to university training
is usually based on the young per-
son's belief that this education will
bring a fuller and a richer life.
The college graduate leads a fuller
life because he or she has gained a
greater knowledge of the world
around him, has attained a broadened
appreciation of life, and has learned
to live with and for other people.
He leads a richer life because he
has mastered professional and tech-
nical skills which permit him to con-
tribute more and to receive more-
both intellectually and materially.
On an ever-widening scale, indus-
try, commerce, and business are in-
sisting upon a college degree of the
man or woman who expects to ad-
vance to a top position. Every year,
scores of personnel managers visit
the Gainesville campus, seeking grad-
uates in both the technical and non-
technical fields. Today's university
graduate is commanding a starting
salary several times greater than that
offered 10 years ago.
The University of Florida offers,
on its Gainesville campus, training
for practically every profession. Over
75 instructional units offer 2,500 in-
dividual courses, ranging from Ele-
mentary Accounting (known as ATG
211) to Thesis in Veterinary Science
(VY 699).
Training at the University is the
key to thousands of jobs. The Gator
student can prepare himself for a
career in:

High School Graduates
At the present time, the University
admits to its freshman class those
students who have graduated from
high school with a satisfactory
achievement record. Consideration is
given to the student's rank in his
graduating class, the general pattern
of his grade record, and his scores
on placement tests. The student
whose record shows no unity of pur-
pose, a lack of essential subjects, or
a low rank in the high school graduat-
ing class cannot be considered for
The University's decision on ad-
mission is based on long experience
which clearly shows that those stu-
dents who have achieved well in a
good selection of high school units
have a real chance for success in
university work. University records
show that students who scatter most
in their subjects, who accomplish
least in any of them, and who almost
invariably rank in the lowest quarter
of their graduating class, are unable
to do university work.
Successful university work requires
skills and understandings above the
average. Since the major part of
a student's study time has to be spent
with text books and extensive read-
ings, it is essential that he be able
to read with real understanding. The
student will probably be a success
in the university if he has done well
in high school in such subjects as
English, history (U. S., ancient, Euro-
pean), algebra (elementary and ad-
vanced), geometry (plane and solid)
trigonometry, f o r e i g n languages,
chemistry, physics, and biology.
Currently, the University of Flor-

ida bases admissions on placement
tests, and overall high school achieve-
ment, rather than on definitely re-
quired high school subjects. How-
ever, studies now being made indicate
that the University may change its
admission requirements in the near
future to require that the student have
satisfactorily completed at least 12
of the secondary units listed in the
preceding paragraph.
Application for Admission-High
school graduates should write to The
Registrar, University of Florida,
Gainesville, for a preliminary appli-
cation form. This form must be com-
pleted and returned to the Director
of Admissions, Office of the Registrar,
at least six weeks in advance of the
school term.
Each application is given individ-
ual study, and the student then will
receive a special set of instructions
and forms to be accomplished in
making his formal application for
admission. In returning these forms
promptly, it is important that the
prospective student make, at the same
time, his application for housing to
the Director of Housing, University
of Florida. A non-Florida freshman
is required to send in, with his formal
application, the $175 non-Florida
Transfer Students
The University of Florida accepts
students transferring from other col-
leges providing they meet the follow-
ing conditions:
1. Honorable Dismissal-The stu-
dent must be eligible to return to the
institution last attended. Students
who for any reason will not be al-

AL90 0 I I n -fert

lowed to return to the institution last
attended cannot be considered for
2. Satisfactory Record-All trans-
fer students must have made an
average of C or higher in all work at-
tempted at all institutions previously
attended to be considered for admis-
3. The University of Florida ac-
cepts on transfer only those courses
completed at other institutions with
grades of C or higher. Grade re-
quirements are based on the grading
system in use at the University of
Florida (explained later in this sec-
tion), and the Registrar's Office is
the final authority on translating
grade reports.
Florida Resident Transfers Stu-
dents should submit to the Director
of Admissions, Office of the Registrar,
the following:
1. Notarized statement of resi-

2. Transcript of credits from
schools attended (only those
courses completed with a C or
better are accepted).
3. Formal application for admis-

Non-Florida Transfers Students
who are not residents of the State
should send the same papers as Flor-
ida transfers, except that the resi-
dence statement is not required. The
$175 non-Florida fee is required.
Admission to Law and Medicine
Applicants for the College of Law
must have received a four-year bacca-
laureate degree from a college or
university of approved standing and
must take the Law School Admission
test. Special regulations govern the
admission of some veterans.

Lines were everywhere as the "Class of '58" busily registered

Applicants for the College of Medi-
cine should have received a four-year
baccalaureate degree from a college
or university of approved standing
(including courses in the basic nat-
ural sciences) and meet other en-
trance requirements of the College.
Admission to Graduate Division
Applicants must be graduates of
an accredited institution and gener-
ally must have an average grade of
B or better for their junior and
senior years. Records of applicants
are reviewed by the graduate selec-
tion committees of the various col-
leges and schools.
All applications must be made to
the Admissions Section of the Regis-
trar's Office, well in advance of the
opening of the school term.
Special Students
Students who wish to take certain
courses not necessarily leading to a
degree may be admitted upon ap-
proval of the Board of University
Examiners. Each case is decided on
an individual basis, with the appli-
cant furnishing the following in-
1) Record of previous educational
2) Type of studies to be pursued.
3) Reason for the program
4) Evidence of ability to pursue
these courses.
Any veteran who expects to enroll
under the provisions of any of the
various federal laws governing edu-
cation or rehabilitation training of
veterans must be sure that he has
cleared the necessary details with the
Veterans Administration and has ob-
tained the necessary documents from
them inasmuch as the veteran will
not begin to receive government bene-
fits until such documents have been
secured. The veteran should not ex-
pect to begin receiving subsistence

payments from the Veterans Admin-
istration until at least six weeks after
classes have started.
Orientation of New Students
All new freshmen and sophomore
students are required to attend Orien-
tation Week activities, scheduled for
six days preceding the opening of
the fall semester. During that period,
students are counseled and advised,
take placement tests, meet the Presi-
dent and other officials of the Uni-
versity, and adjust themselves to
campus life before classes begin.
New students receive a complete
instruction booklet on Orientation
Week, well in advance of the sched-
uled dates.
The Grading System
Student grades for individual
courses are recorded by the letter
system: A, excellent; B, good; C,
average; D, fair; E, failing; I, in-
complete; X, absent from examina-
To determine the student's grade
average, these letter grades are con-
verted into honor points: a grade of
A equals four honor points per sem-
ester hour; B, 3 points; C, 2 points;
D, 1 point; E, 0 point. Thus, a 4
point student has made all A's; a
3.5 student, half A and half B grades;
3.0, a B-average; 2.93 half B's and
half C's, etc.
Student Regulations
Detailed information relative to
graduation, grades, examinations,
suspensions, unsatisfactory work, stu-
dent conduct, and social activities are
presented in a pamphlet "; student
Regulations" which may be obtained
from the Registrar.
Each student is held responsible
for observance of rules and regula-
tions of the University and of the
School or College in which he is en-
rolled, insofar as they affect him.
Violations may be disciplined by
reprimand, probation, suspension, or

IIerslty Fes

The registration fee is the largest
of the student's official expenses.
Each semester the student pays one
of the following: Florida student

(except Medicine)-$75. Part-time
Florida students enrolled for only
one fixed credit course (not over four
semester hours)-$20. Non-Florida
students enrolled in any college or
school (except Medicine)-$250.
Fees for late registration are in-
creased by $5.
The $75 registration fee is made
up of a contingent fee (which goes
toward general college expenses),
building fee (goes toward building
construction and rehabilitation),
health fee (entitles the student to
certain medical services and a low
hospital rate) and an activity fee
(entitles student to admission to ath-
letic events, use of the Florida Union

Despite the completion of seven
modern brick and steel residence halls
-three for men and four for women
-the University finds it impossible to
keep abreast of the demand for hous-
ing. Because of the shortage of
rooms, it is imperative that the stu-
dent send in his request for quarters
far in advance of the opening of the
school term. All applications should
be to: Director of Housing, Univer-
sity of Florida, Gainesville.
The University makes every effort
to secure living accommodations for
students in University-owned quar-
ters or in private residences in the
Housing accommodations for stu-
dents at the University of Florida
consist of residence halls, fraternities
and sororities, cooperative houses,
rooming houses and private homes,
dormitories, and temporary housing
All single men students who have
completed less than one full year of
college work and all single, under-
graduate women students are required
to live on-campus if space is avail-
able. Exceptions to this regulation
are students who are residents of
Gainesville or commute daily from
nearby towns, and undergraduate
women students (except freshman)
who live in their sorority houses.

Food expenses will vary according
to individual tastes, but $1.50 per
day is regarded as the minimum.
The University Food Service Depart-
ment operates the University Cafe-

teria, serving three meals daily at
scheduled hours; the Campus Club,
open daily through the late evening
hours and specializing in short or-
ders; the Florida Room Cafeteria,
serving two meals daily during week-
days; and the Hub, open on week-
days and specializing in short orders.
Cafeteria coupon books containing
tickets with a monetary value of $5
or $15 are sold for the convenience
of students.
There are also a number of pri-
vately-operated restaurants near the
campus and in the city, and most of
the fraternities and sororities operate
dining rooms for the convenience of
members and guests. Meals are also
served at the cooperative housing or-
ganizations, but only a few private
houses have room and board jointly

houses is limited to fully initiated
members in the case of women stu-
dents and members or pledges in the
case of men students. Since the fra-
ternities and sororities cooperate
closely with the University in matters
pertaining to student life, they are

ings are maintained in the Central
Housing Office. No lists are avail-
able for mailing to prospective stu-
dents because space availability
changes rapidly.
The University does not inspect
and approve or disapprove off-cam-
pus housing; judgment as to quality,

arrangements, and acceptable rates
is at the discretion of the student
and his parents. However, the Di-
rector of Housing and the Deans of
Men and Women are available for
consultation with students about off-
campus arrangements.
Lists of local trailer parks and of
Gainesville realtors who handle
rentals and sales are available on
request from the Director of Housing.
Automobile Parking
Students who live on campus are
assigned parking areas near their
residence for their motor vehicles.
Students who live more than a block
from the campus and who use cars
for travel to the campus are per-
mitted to park in certain lots.
Heavy traffic on the campus, how-
ever, has forced a restriction on the
use of student cars on days when
classes are in session. On those days,
students living on campus and within
a block of the campus are not per-
mitted to park on the campus in any
spaces other than their assigned areas.
During the 10-minute class changes
Monday through Friday, all motor
traffic is halted on the central main
campus. This means that neither
faculty nor students can depend on
cars between classes.
For these reasons, freshmen are
advised against bringing automobiles
to the campus, and the University
Senate is seriously considering a
regulation forbidding freshmen the
use of automobiles during the school
Registration of all students' cars
and issuance of parking permits are
handled by Campus Police during
the student's registration procedure.
Student violators of traffic regula-
tions are subject to monetary fines
imposed by the Student Traffic Court.

Personnel Services
The new student at the University
of Florida will find staff and faculty
members who are anxious to help him
select his particular field of study
and choose his courses. Each student
will have the help of faculty mem-
bers at the time of enrollment, and
these faculty members are available
for advice and counsel all during the
school year.
The academic counselling which
is concerned with advice to students
on courses they should take is under
the direct supervision of the deans
and directors of the various colleges
and schools. The systems vary
slightly from unit to unit, but in
every case the counsellor, whether it
be for a college or a department or
a given area of study, has been care-
fully selected for his knowledge of
the subjects and the professions to
which they lead. Many times the
student will consult more than one
counsellor if he is interested in dif-
ferent educational possibilities. It
is extremely important that the stu-
dent discuss his academic plans and
problems, if any, with an academic
counsellor. Any student will find
that his fellow students, and many
of the University staff, will be very
glad to give advice and help, but he
must remember that his individual
record and the knowledge and ex-
perience of his counsellor are the
indispensable items for sound coun-
selling and planning. As a fresh-
man or sophomore, the student not
only has the services of the coun-
sellors in the office of the Dean of
the University College for this help
and planning, but also many consult

the Upper Division and departmental
counsellors, all of whom are glad
to assist any student in furnishing
him information or advice on the type
of program he should plan.
The Dean of Men is the counsellor
to men students, and serves as adviser
to student self-government. The
Dean of Women has broad responsi-
bilities for the welfare of women
students and serves as adviser to the
Women Students' Association.
The Director of Housing, working
with both the Dean of Men and the
Dean of Women, coordinates the
residence halls and Flavet programs
and operations.
The Foreign Student Adviser as-
sists students from other lands in
problems of visas, work permits,
course planning, and housing.
Adviser to Student Organizations
clears the work of all organized stu-
dent groups on the campus.
Complete records on the social and
scholastic activities of every student
are maintained in the Office of Stu-
dent Personnel Records.
The services of these five clinics,
coordinated by the Dean of Student
Personnel, are available without
charge to University students:
The Psychological Clinic, with a
staff which includes some time of
the University Psychiatrist, aids the
student in his personal adjustment.
Staff is available for assistance in
choosing career objectives, evaluation
of interest, temperament and mental
capacity, as well as assistance in the
solution of academic difficulties and
personal problems.
The Speech and Hearing Clinic
conducts an examination of all in-

Stwdent krvfaes

coming students during Orientation
Week, for the purpose of discovering
those who need special instruction
because of speech defects or hearing
losses. Those having speech or hear-
ing impairments which might inter-
fere with a college career or in later
life are invited to return for further
examinations and for whatever help
may be indicated. Some find need
for instruction to overcome speech
defects; others having hearing losses
need instruction in lip-reading and
in the use of a hearing aid.
The Reading Laboratory and Clinic
is available to all University students
who wish to improve their skills in
reading and spelling. After the stu-
dent makes application for help, a
series of interviews and diagnostic
tests determines the program of study
needed to improve reading skills.
The program is scheduled not only
according to the needs of the student
but also with respect to the time the
student has available.
Adapted and Corrective Exercises
assists those students who have physi-
cal limitations or deviations which
necessitate individual consideration.
A sports program is developed within
the limits of physical capacity. A
program of functional exercise is pro-
vided for those with physical devi-
ations which can be corrected or im-
proved. Attention will be given to
individual interests and to social and
recreational needs for adult life.
The Marriage and Family Clinic
can assist in gaining insight into prob-
lems, in weighing advantages and
disadvantages of alternate adjust-

ments, and in supplying general
guidance and information relative to
marriage and the home. This unit
has helped many young men and
young women who are students at
the University in their social adjust-
ments both before and after marriage.

Student Health Service
The Student Health Department
maintains an Outpatient Clinic to
provide ambulatory medical care for
students. Those needing hospitaliza-
tion are cared for as Inpatients in
the Infirmary, unless major surgery
or other specialized services are
necessary for which facilities are not
The University Infirmary is staffed
by forty-five individuals, including
six full-time physicians, one part-
time physician, nineteen nurses, two
pharmacists, two laboratory techni-
cians, a physical therapist, an X-ray
technician, a dietitian, office staff, and
other personnel. All services, in-
cluding laboratory work, physical
therapy, most drugs used, and general
medical care are furnished with no
charge other than the payment of the
Student Health Fee, which is part
of the registration fee. Small addi-
tional charges are made for some
types of drugs, and there is an addi-
tional charge of $1.75 a day for
inpatients, and a small charge for

Government and the
Honor System
Extra-curricular activities are im-
portant in the life of the student at
the University of Florida. Florida's
system of freedom and responsibility
centers around the recognized system
of student government. The Execu-
tive Council-the legislative branch
of government-is composed of elect-
ed student representatives from all
schools and colleges, while the execu-
tive branch is composed of the Presi-
dent, Vice-President, and Secretary-
Treasurer of the Student Body, and
the President's Cabinet.
The Honor System has long been
recognized as one of Florida's most
cherished traditions. The Honor
Court, with its elected Chancellor and
Clerk and Justices from the colleges,
has the responsibility of upholding
this tradition and helping students
develop a sense of honesty and in-
tegrity in their dealings with fellow
students. Violations of the honor
code are investigated by this student
Florida Union
The Florida Union, the center of
campus activities, serves as the gath-
ering place for all students interested
in participating in activities. The
social activities in and around the
Union are sponsored by students for
the entire student body and the offices
of student government and all student
publications are housed within its
Among the weekly activities spon-
sored by the Social Board of the
Union and open to all students are
Club Nautilus, bridge lessons and

versity, guests of students, and
Over 175 student organizations in
all fields of activity and interest are
available to students interested in
participating in them. Hobby groups,
departmental and honorary organ-
izations, social organizations, voca-
tional clubs, and many others assist
in providing a well rounded series
of out-of-class activities. Every stu-
dent can find a place in one or more
of these groups.
Social Fraternities
Twenty-six national social fraterni-
ties have established chapters at the
University; most of them have al-
ready built chapter houses and others
have leased homes. The general
work of the fraternities is controlled

by the Interfraternity Council, com-
posed of one delegate from each of
the national fraternities. The na-
tional fraternities at Florida are

group-fraternity, sorority, dormi-
tory, or independent. The Depart-
ment of Intramural Athletics and
Recreation provides equipment for
volleyball, basketball, softball, arch-
ery, tennis, golf, etc.

Religious Organizations
Although the University of Florida
is a state institution and non-sec-
tarian, it recognizes the importance of
religion in the development of the
individual, and encourages students
to become active in the church of
their choice.
A broad program of inter-denomi-
national religious activities is spon-
sored on the campus by the Student
Religious Association. Composed of
representatives of all denominational
student religious groups and of the
student body at large, the Association
brings outstanding lecturers in the
field of religion to the University,
holds group discussions and semi-
nars, and enlists students in a pro-
gram of service to the University and
the state. A faculty committee on
religion, appointed by the President
of the University, assists the Student

Religious Association in its program
and work.
All Gainesville churches welcome
students to their services and most
of them plan events of interest to
Several of the denominations main-
tain very attractive Student Centers
immediately adjacent to the campus.
These include Crane Hall (Roman
Catholic), The Baptist Student Union,
W e s 1 e y Foundation (Methodist),
Canterbury House (Episcopal), West-
minster Fellowship (Presbyterian),
the Church of Christ, B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation (Jewish), and the
Lutheran Student Association.
The student religious centers house
chapels, reading and social rooms,
and provide well rounded religious,
social, and recreational programs
through the school year.

Other Student Activities
Debating-Practice in debating is
open to all students through the pro-
grams of the varsity and University
College debate squads. This work,
which is sponsored by the Debate
Club, is under the direction of the
Department of Speech, and culmi-
nates in an extensive schedule of in-
tercollegiate debates.
Dramatics-Any student has an
opportunity to participate in several
plays which are presented each year
by the Florida Players, a dramatic
group under direction of the Depart-
ment of Speech.
Executive Council-The Executive
Council is composed of representa-
tives elected from the colleges on the
campus and in general acts as ad-
ministrator of Student Body affairs.
The Athletic Council and the Lyceum
Council have jurisdiction over their
respective fields.
Publications-The Student Body
publishes The Seminole, the )ear
book; The Florida Alligator, the stu-
dent newspaper; The "F" Book, the
student's guide; and The Orange
Peel, the campus literary magazine.

The University College

Because our modern society is so
complex most programs of higher
education include courses which give
the student some familiarity with all
of the major areas of human knowl-
edge. At the University of Florida
the majority of the work of the fresh-
man and sophomore years is devoted
to this general education. Approxi-
mately two-thirds of the work of these
first two years is prescribed and in-
cludes courses which will familiarize
the student to a limited degree with
the fields generally defined in aca-
demic circles as the social sciences,
the physical sciences, the biological
sciences and the humanities.
A course in communication in Eng-
lish which includes reading, speak-
ing and writing is required. Courses
in mathematics and practical logic
designed primarily to give the stu-
dent sound bases and practice in
intelligent thinking complete the re-
quired portion of this program.
Approximately one-third of the time
of the first two years is spent in the
pre-professional courses required for
admission to the colleges and pro-
fessional schools of the Upper Di-
vision, or in a case of students who
have not yet decided upon their edu-
cational objective further explora-
tory work will help them to choose
a profession or vocation or verify
a choice tentatively made.
Guidance and Testing
The entire general education pro-
gram above introduces the student to
the principal areas of human knowl-
edge. It also immeasurably con-
tributes to educational guidance. In-
formation which can help the begin-
ning student make a sound choice of
vocation or profession is a part

of all of the comprehensive courses.
A special staff of counsellors as-
sists the Dean of the University Col-
lege in helping students plan their
programs. Each of these men is
carefully selected for his ability to
work with students, and each teaches
in one or more of the comprehensive
courses, for the University of Florida
has found that the best educational
guidance is given by those who are
in day to day touch with the class-
There are many agencies of the
University which offer testing facili-
ties and guidance information. All
of these are available to any student
on request, and frequently the Uni-
versity College counsellors refer stu-
dents to these various agencies.
The Curriculum
The Required Courses
C- American Institutions. In-
terpretation of the interrelated prob-
lems confronting American institu-

College of Architecture

and Allied Arts

It is the purpose of the College
of Architecture and Allied Arts to
improve man's physical environment
and enrich his life. To that end,
the College provides professional edu-
cation for useful service in the field
of the arts, and creative and cultural
opportunities for students in all the
other colleges of the University.
The general objective of all the
College programs undergraduate
and graduate alike--is to provide
a foundation in general and special-
ized education which will develop a
broad basis for creative activity.
Heart and core of all the programs
is Design, the creative process by
which the materials of nature are or-
ganized for the service and satisfac-
tion of man. Whether applied to
paintings, industrial products, land
areas, or buildings, all of the groups
concerned artists, builders, plan-
ners, architects, and the others -
have a common approach to the solu-
tion of problems arising out of hu-
man needs.
Since it is to the arts that man-
kind is turning for leadership in the
organization of a decently humanized
world, it is not surprising that heavier
responsibilities in teaching, research,
and service are being placed upon
the College year by year. In archi-
tecture and art, for example, student
enrollments are now the largest in the
South, and in architecture they are
fourth largest in the country. Bridg-
ing as it does the gap between the
humanities and the sciences, it is not
surprising that the College of Archi-
tecture and Allied Arts has become

one of the major units of the Uni-
The College is a member of the
American Federation of Arts, the As-
sociation of Collegiate Schools of
Architecture, the College Art Asso-
ciation, and the Society of Architec-
tural Historians. The curriculum in
Architecture is accredited by the
National Architectural Accrediting
Board. Graduates who have acquired
the necessary practical experience
are admitted to examinations of the
Florida State Board of Architecture.

Curricula and Degrees
Requiring three years (90 hours)
beyond University College is:
Bachelor of Architecture.
Requiring two years (60 to 72
hours) beyond University College:
Bachelor of Building Construction
Bachelor of Landscape Architec-
Bachelor of Design (Interior De-
Bachelor of Fine Arts (in Painting
and Drawing or History of Art)

ter of Science in Building Construc-
tion, Master of Science in Commun-
ity Planning, Master of Fine Arts.

College of Arts and Sciences

Culturally and historically the pro-
grams of the College of Arts and
Sciences at the University of Florida
represent the core of all higher edu-
cation. A sound foundation is the
primary requirement for any sub-
stantial education. Regardless of a
student's goal, he will contribute
more to society if his specialized
training is based on the subject mat-
ter offered in this College.
As distinguished from the profes-
sional schools, the College of Arts
and Sciences has the special duty
of teaching fundamental knowledge.
The College stresses the evaluation
of ideas and their impact on society.
Intellectual inquiry is emphasized as
a preparation for more competent
living and the development of human
This College prepares its graduates
for additional study on the basis of
which they will pursue a wide va-
riety of professional interests. They
will be teachers, preachers, doctors,
lawyers, authors, dentists, research
scientists, and home-makers. In ad-
dition, however, they will, in the
home, in business, on the farm, or
in any walk of life, know and under-
stand the relationship of their own
job to the rest of the life of the world.

Curricula and Degrees
To complete the necessary 64 hours
(including a foreign language) the
student in Arts and Sciences selects
from the following "majors":

Bachelor of Arts, with a major in
Anthropology, Art, Economics, Eng-
lish, Family Life, French, German,
Greek, History, Italian, Latin, Li-

College of Education

The College of Education offers
the bachelor's degree in Early Child-
hood Education (preparation for
kindergarten teaching), Elementary
Education, and in almost all areas of
teaching in the secondary schools.
At the graduate level, the College
offers both the Master of Education
degree and the Master of Arts degree;
the Specialist in Education degree,
which is awarded at the end of six
years of study; and the Doctor of
Education degree.
There are many opportunities in
educational work today. For ex-
ample, all of the teacher education
institutions in Florida will graduate
this year only 40% of the new teach-
ers needed in the public schools of
Florida this September.
There are 1,050 state scholarships
paying $400 a year for four years
to assist Florida students in prepar-
ing to teach. Application for these
scholarships may be made to any
county school superintendent's office.
The College is a member of the
American Association of Colleges of
Teacher Education and of the Na-
tional Council for Accreditation of
Teacher Education.

Curricula and Degrees
Bachelor of Arts in Education and
Bachelor of Science in Education are
awarded, the latter to students who
specialize in science, mathematics,
agriculture, business education, or in-
dustrial arts. Seven curricula are
Early Childhood Education
Elementary Education

Education for the Exceptional
Secondary Education
Vocational Agriculture
Business Education
Industrial Arts

Practical Experience
During the senior year, students
in the elementary and secondary cur-
ricula spend ten weeks in internship
teaching at public schools in Florida.
Graduate students have many oppor-
tunities for similar internship experi-
ence in the public schools, in the
state-supported junior colleges, or at
the University of Florida. Operation
and facilities of the P. K. Yonge
Laboratory School on the campus,
which embraces kindergarten to the
twelfth grade, are available to Edu-
cation students for observation and

Advanced Degrees
The Master of Education degree or
the Master of Arts in Education de-
gree may be earned in most fields.
The Specialist in Education degree
represents a year's work beyond that
required for the Master's degree. Ad-
ministered by the Advanced School of
the College of Education, the study
for the Specialist degree is designed
to prepare students for leadership in
public school education.
The Doctor of Education degree,
which is also administered through
the Advanced School of the College
of Education, is similar to the Ph.D.,
except that statistics, measurement
and certain research courses are sub-
stituted for the language requirement.

The prime purpose of the College
of Engineering is to educate men for
the engineering profession. In our
highly technical civilization, a tech-
nological training should prove of
value wherever the graduate decides
to serve, for it must be recognized
that many graduates of engineering
schools become leaders and execu-
tives in varied fields.
The research division of the Col-
lege of Engineering, the Engineering
and Industrial Experiment Station,
has as its objectives the development
of new products, the utilization of
Florida's natural resources, the estab-
lishment of new industries in the
State, and the giving of assistance to
existing industry. The close associa-
tion between teaching and research
brings the student into contact with
actual practical engineering work.
It also enables many students to find
part-time employment on research
projects and thus earn a portion of
their expenses, while at the same time
acquiring valuable experience and
knowledge in the practical applica-
tion of engineering fundamentals.
Rapid advances in the field of en-
gineering require up-to-date labora-
The College of Engineering at the
University of Florida is growing
rapidly. One evidence is the fact
that the number of freshman engi-
neers in 1953 as compared to the
number in 1940 shows a 240 per cent
increase as compared to a 43 per cent
increase for the nation as a whole.

Even with this large increase, how-
ever, the College has been unable
to supply the tremendous demand for
its graduates. For the year 1953-54
the average starting salary for stu-
dents receiving the Bachelor's degree
in Engineering and going into indus-
try was $375 per month.

Curricula and Degrees
Degrees in seven curricula are
Bachelor of Aeronautical Engineering
Bachelor of Agricultural Engineering
Bachelor of Chemical Engineering
Bachelor of Civil Engineering
Bachelor of Electrical Engineering
Bachelor of Industrial Engineering
Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

Practical Experience
Under the Florida Industries Co-
operative Plan, students beyond the
freshman year may spend alternate
four-month periods working in se-
lected industries. The student is paid
for the working periods.

Advanced Degrees
Through the Graduate School, en-
gineering students may earn the fol-
lowing degrees:
Master of Science in Engineering,
with major studies in Aeronautical
Engineering, Chemical Engineering,
Civil Engineering, Electrical Engi-
Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical

(A Unit of the College of Agriculture)

The School trains men for profes-
sional careers in forest management,
wood utilization, and wildlife man-
agement. The School is accredited
by the Society of American Foresters.
Alumni of the School are found
in many different types of positions
in forestry, not only in Florida and
the Southeast, but also in other parts
of the United States.
Forestry positions, in addition to
requiring intensive professional train-
ing, entail public contact and business
relations. Hence, willingness for
hard work, a pleasing personality,
and willingness to assume responsi-
bility are assets of distinct value for
anyone desiring to enter the profes-
During the past few years the de-
mand for trained foresters has been
greater than the supply. This has
been especially true in the Southeast,
and the situation particularly applies
to men trained in forest management,
although opportunities are also plenti-
ful in the fields of wood utilization
and wildlife management.
Facilities of the School of Forestry
include a library of approximately
1,500 books and 10,500 pamphlets,

the Austin Cary Memorial Forest of
2,080 acres, a complete sawmill,
heavy logging equipment, and a well
equipped wood products laboratory.
All forestry students spend one
summer term of eight weeks in For-
estry Summer Camp at Welaka Con-
servation Reserve. This gives stu-
dents an opportunity for practical
field experience.
Through its department at Lake
City, the School offers a one-year
Forest Ranger Course for high school
graduates (for information on this
latter school, write the Superintend-
ent, State Forest Rangers School,
Lake City, Florida).

Curricula and Degrees
The School awards a Bachelor of
Science in Forestry, for completing
one of three curricula (79 hours):

With the completion of new quar-
ters now under construction, the
School of Journalism and Communi-
cations will have classrooms and
laboratories equal to the facilities of
any school in the country.
Thirty thousand square feet of
space will provide for two TV
studios, control room, dressing rooms,
and lounge; three FM radio studios
and two control rooms; record and
film libraries; laboratories for pho-
tography, reporting, advertising, copy-
reading and editing; radio-TV news
room; and faculty offices.
Originating as a Department in the
early '30's, the School of Journalism
came into being in 1949, and in 1950
became one of only 39 schools in the
United States accredited by the Amer-
ican Council on Education for Jour-
nalism. With authorization of the
Radio-TV curriculum and equipment
in 1954, the name was changed to
the School of Journalism and Com-
The School prepares students for
careers in newspaper and magazine
writing, advertising, public relations,
radio and television. The programs
provide the student with a broad
background in the liberal arts and
sciences, along with professional
courses in journalism and radio-TV.
Each member of the faculty is a
professional man, skilled by many
years experience in his particular
field before joining the teaching staff.
Courses in the School have been
grouped into four programs-Printed

Advertising, Radio-TV Advertising,
Journalism, and Radio-TV. These
four programs, however, are so plan-
ned as to provide an adequate back-
ground for careers in scores of dif-
ferent positions in, or allied with,
journalism, advertising, radio-TV,
and public relations.
Upon installation of TV studios
and equipment, it is expected that
the School will become the center for
the production of educational TV
films. The student assisting in this
work will graduate with a complete
background for commercial television

Curricula and Degrees
The Bachelor of Science in Jour-
nalism is awarded for completing the
curricula in printed advertising and
in journalism; the Bachelor of
Science in Communications for the
radio-TV program and for the radio-
TV advertising program.

Practical Experience
Practical experience is offered
through placing students with news-
papers and radio stations for sum-
mer employment. During the school
year, students also write for publica-
tions and for radio-TV.

CoIIe of Law

The law has become one of the
most honored professions through the
efforts of generations of lawyers to
help their fellow men in all aspects
of society-as advocates and as ad-
visers. Only those anxious to further
this reputation should undertake
preparation for law. Law practice
is neither easy nor is it a quick means
to wealth. Most lawyers work long
hours and their average income is
often exceeded by that of other
Becoming a lawyer is a long, diffi-
cult process. Only four-year college
graduates are admitted to the College
of Law, where three additional years
of work are required. (Special regu-
lations govern the admission of vet-
erans.) Further, law school stand-
ards are high and hard work and
ability are necessary to obtain a law
degree. After law school the grad-
uate must pass rigorous state exami-
nations as to his character and com-
petence before he is admitted to the
Bar and to practice.
No particular course of study is
required for admission to the College
of Law. Entering law students need
not mere ability to memorize, but
ability to read and to understand
rapidly, to think for themselves, and
to express their thoughts orally or
in writing with clarity, precision and
force. Many courses develop these
abilities, but those in English, his-
tory, economics, mathematics, politi-
cal science, and languages are par-
ticularly recommended. So-called
trade and "snap" courses should be
avoided. Interested students may re.

ceive advice and counseling regard-
ing their individual pre-law programs
from the Office of the Dean, College
of Law. Information as to entrance
requirements may be obtained from

Law school is recognized as excel-
lent training for business and govern-
ment and many graduates undertake
stimulating careers in fields other
than law practice. For both this
group and those who enter practice,
the enormous rewards of personal
satisfaction and critical understand-
ing are well worth the time and effort
necessary to obtain the law degree.

Curriculum and Degrees
The degree of Bachelor of Laws
(LL.B.) is awarded after (1) com-
pletion with a passing grade of
courses totaling 85 credits; (2)
maintenance of a 2.0 ("C") honor
point average on all work attempted;
and (3) completion of 96 weeks of
study in residence.

The College of Medicine and the
College of Nursing are to be the first
units of the new Health Center. Re-
quests for further information should
be addressed to: Provost, J. Hillis
Miller Health Center, University of
Florida, Gainesville.
An individual proposing to study
medicine, should have a good mind,
capable of doing "B" average work
or better in college. He must like
to study since the practice of medi-
cine is a never-ending process of self-
education. He must like people and
understand their basic motivations
and actions. He must have an in-
herent social and ethical conscious-
ness and should have a personality
which commands respect. He should,
therefore, be first of all an educated
man with a broad cultural and socio-
logic background so that he can be
a respected citizen and leader in his
community in order to interpret medi-
cal advances to his patients and the
community and to apply the science
of medicine to his art.

Applicants must have a bacca-
laureate degree, including courses in
the basic natural sciences, and cul-
tural and social subjects. Registra-
tion will be necessarily restricted,
with 50 students comprising the en-
tering class in September, 1956.

Curricula and Degree
Training in the College of Medi-
cine will be accomplished through
a three-fold program of teaching, re-
search and care of patients. During
the first two years students will pur-
sue a common course of study, but
in the final two years will be per-
mitted some variety in their clinical
work. The M.D. degree will be
awarded for successful completion of
the four-year course, plus internship.

In their third year students will
spend a 12-week period in a selected
hospital or clinic, and in their fourth
year will devote 12 weeks in precep-
torship in the office of a physician
in practice in the state.

Graduate and Postgraduate
The contemplated program of the
Health Center involves on-campus
work toward the M.S. and Ph.D. in
fields allied to medicine (biochemis-
try, bacteriology, etc.) and on-cam-
pus and off-campus short courses.

It is expected that a College of
Nursing, a unit of the J. Hillis Miller
Health Center, will enroll its first
class in September 1956. Its purpose
will be to train qualified women for
positions in the nursing profession
and to offer opportunities for ad-
vanced work in nursing education.
Like the other undergraduate units
of the University the majority of the
work for the first two years will be
the basic courses of the University
College with appropriate pre-profes-
sional courses for the elective portion
of the general education program.
Because the student in nursing will
have a campus life and schedule
similar to that of any other women
students studying toward the bacca-
laureate degree, special living quar-
ters will not be provided.

Since the College of Pharmacy was
established in 1923, it has grown tre-
mendously and become one of the
best in the United States. It is ac-
credited by the American Council on
Pharmaceutical Education with a
Class A rating and therefore receives
recognition for its courses from all
state boards requiring graduation
from an accredited college of phar-
macy as a prerequisite for examina-
tion and registration. The College is
a member of the American Associa-
tion of Colleges of Pharmacy and
complies with its educational require-
The curriculum is designed to pro-
vide a systematic course of instruc-
tion in those subjects which are
essential for the successful practice
of pharmacy in drugstores and hos-
pital pharmacies. The courses pro-
vide a foundation for additional study
to qualify one more fully to work in
laboratories in the pharmaceutical,
chemical, biological, and cosmetic in-
dustries. The curriculum furnishes
a basis for training for analysis and
inspection of food, drug, and cos-
metic products. Graduates are in
demand for sales work with whole-
sale and manufacturing pharmaceuti-
cal firms. Pharmacists are eligible
for a limited number of commissions
in the U. S. Public Health Service,
the Army, and the Navy.

Opportunities for women in hos-
pital and retail pharmacy are evi-
denced by the fact that over 5,000
women are now practicing this pro-
fession. Forty women students were
enrolled in the Pharmacy curriculum
in the school.year 1953-54.
Facilities of the College of Phar-
macy include machinery for manu-

rectors, playground supervisors, camp
directors, teachers and coordinators
of health education, state and county
public health personnel, voluntary
health personnel and physical thera-
pists for private practice and institu-
tional positions.
Opportunities are abundant, also,
for various job combinations wherein
students who select positions in the
public schools from those listed above
may be required or may wish to teach
additional school subjects such as
English, mathematics, history.
The College of Physical Education
and Health by virtue of its particular
structure is exceptionally well pre-
pared to give the student the neces-
sary training in the above described
areas of "special education."
Also, as part of their training, all
students engage in activities calcu-
lated to improve their general physi-
cal fitness, personal health knowl-
edge, sports and other recreational
skills. This background, together
with that provided by the general
education program, serves as a
secure and well-grounded base from
which the student can enter into the
highly specialized training required
of graduates. Opportunity is also
provided for graduate studies lead-

ing toward college, university and
other teaching, administrative and
supervisory positions. Graduates of
the College are granted certificates
by the Florida State Department of

Curricula and Degrees
The College offers four undergrad-
uate degrees:
Bachelor of Science in Physical
Education (separate curricula
are offered for men and women)
Bachelor of Science in Health Edu-
Bachelor of Science in Recreation
Bachelor of Science in Physical
Therapy (the fourth year of the
course to be completed at an-
other school)
Practical Experience
During the second semester of the
senior year, both men and women
students spend ten weeks in super-
vised teaching in public schools
throughout the state. The College
also arranges some summer work for
students as camp counsellors and
recreation workers.

Advanced Degrees
Through the Graduate School,
courses are offered leading to the de-
gree of Master of Physical Education

The Graduate School is designed
for the exceptional student, the stu-
dent who has the desire and the ca-
pacity to go beyond the basic facts in
his chosen profession or field of
knowledge. In pursuing graduate
work, the student not only acquires
a wider and more detailed competence
in his subject, but is encouraged to
go beyond known accumulated facts
and to open up new vistas of man
and the world he lives in.
The graduate schools of the world
produce the scholars who broaden
the concept of history, economics,
political science, mathematics, and the
arts. The graduate schools also pro-
duce the scientists whose research
leads to the development of atomic
energy, new antibiotics, man-made
fibers, improved agricultural and
forest methods, and advanced engi-
neering practices.
Other professional work of grad-
uate level is offered by the Colleges
of Education, Business Administra-
tion, Architecture and Allied Arts,
Physical Education and Health, and
Limitations of space and staff re-
strict the enrollment of graduate stu-
dents. The student who hopes to do
graduate work must present an under-
graduate grade average which indi-
cates that he has the ability and
initiative to be successful in graduate
work. In many departments a B
average undergraduate record is re-
quired for graduate study. A stu-
dent who does not graduate in the
upper half of his class has little prob-
ability of being admitted to a grad-
uate school.

The Graduate School at the Uni-
versity of Florida consists of the
Graduate Dean, the Graduate Coun-
cil, and the Graduate Faculty, num-
bering 580 professors. The School is

Military Departments

The University of Florida offers
instruction in the Military Sciences
as an integral part of its curricula.
The Department of the Army and
the Department of the Air Force each
maintain a Reserve Officer Training
Corps (ROTC) and provide staffs
of officers and detachments of en-
listed men to handle the administra-
tion and instruction of cadets and
the maintenance of equipment re-
quired for the course.
The University requires that all
physically fit male students, except
certain veterans, transfer students,
and foreign students, complete the
two-year basic course as a prerequi-
site to graduation. The two-year ad-
vance course is optional.
Students transferring from other
universities with senior ROTC units
are allowed college credit for mili-
tary work completed there, provided
such credit does not exceed four
semester hours for the basis course.
The eligibility for admission of such
students to military courses at the
University of Florida is determined
by the professors of Military and
Air Science and Tactics. No credit
is allowed for junior ROTC work.

Basic Course,
Army and Air Force
The Army and the Air Force basic
courses include four semesters (two
school years) of instruction. The
student receives four hours of credit
for these courses, which are counted
in computing the 64 hours needed to
complete his Lower Division college

Students entering military instruc-
tion are assigned to the Army or to
the Air Force in conformity to the
needs of the Armed Forces and to
assigned enrollment quotas. Uni-
forms and texts are furnished, but
the student at registration must de-
posit $20 which is refunded upon
return of all Government property in
satisfactory condition.

Advanced Courses,
Army and Air Force
Advanced courses of both the
Army and the Air Force include four
semesters (two school years) of in-
struction at the University and a sum-
mer camp between the junior and
senior years.
Each student receives uniforms,
text books and a subsistence allow-
ance, presently totalling about $27
per month. This allowance is paid
at the end of each three-month period
during enrollment in the advanced
course, for not more than a total
of 595 days.
Students are paid for travel to and
from the six-week summer camp;
while at camp, they are provided
quarters, rations, uniforms, and paid
at the rate of $78 a month.
Upon successful completion of the
advanced course, students receive
commissions in the reserve and are
normally called to active duty for two
years. Outstanding students may ap-
ply for a regular commission in the
Army or Air Force. Air Force cadets
are encouraged to attend flying school
in officer grade.

The Department of Required

Physical Education

This Department of the College of
Physical Education and Health con-
ducts the program of required physi-
cal education in which all University
students must participate. Men are
enrolled for eight semesters and
women for four semesters. Students
taking fewer than 10 semester hours,
students over 26 years of age, and
veterans are excused. Students with
physical limitations or deficiencies
are assigned to a program of adapted

The Scope of the University

Most persons probably think of a
university as a school for training
young men and women in the arts,
sciences, and professions. The Uni-
versity of Florida, however, is more
than classrooms, laboratories, and
agricultural plots.
In addition to bringing education
to young people and to adults, the
University has numerous divisions,
bureaus, centers, and services which
contribute to the business, industrial,
and cultural life of the state and of
the nation.
In Gainesville or scattered through-
out the state are:

General State and
University Agencies
The Agricultural Extension Service pre-
pares and distributes information derived
from research and observation by special-
ists in agriculture. It assists county and
home demonstration agents in the practical
applications of recommendations for better
farming and improved homemaking.
The General Extension Division organizes
and supervises extension classes, corre-
spondence courses, workshops, conferences,
and short courses for educational, occupa-
tional, and cultural groups. The Division
provides loan collections of books and
visual aids and maintains adult consulta-
tion services for groups and individuals.
The Division also serves the Florida State
University and the Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University.
The Division of Alumni Affairs main-
tains contact with alumni of the University
of Florida and coordinates the activities
of the various state alumni clubs. It
publishes the Florida Alumnus, a quarterly
The Florida State Museum, with almost
one-half million items in its collection,
maintains a museum in the Seagle Build-
ing, Gainesville, and operates two Mobile
Exhibits. The two-floor exhibit of pottery,
birds, and historical items is open to the
public throughout the year.

University of Florida Radio Station
WRUF, transmitting on both AM and FM,
is affiliated with the Mutual Broadcasting

ages and publishes original and scholarly
manuscripts which will aid in developing

the University in dealing with outside
agencies interested in sponsorship of funda-
mental and applied research. Contracts
