1. Credentials should be submitted as
soon as possible after the close of the spring
term, and in no case later than September
1, 1934.
2. Students who do not observe this regu-
lation must expect to undergo the inconvenience
of delay in being notified of their status. This
may lead to embarrassing results in the event
the candidate in question is not qualified for
admission, as the time for removing deficiencies
is thereby curtailed.
3. Credits must be sent directly to the Regis-
trar, University of Florida, by the proper
official at the school last attended. Credits
received otherwise will have to be returned for
verification, thus causing delay and incon-
venience to the candidate in question.



The high school graduate is confronted with a problem worthy of serious con-
sideration when he chooses a university education from among the many oppor-
tunities offered for further training. University work is very different from high
school work. It deals with a higher order of studies and demands constant advance-
iment to more difficult studies, which require intellectual growth and expansion.
University work is conducted with a view of developing initiative, independent
judgment, and responsibility in its students for the reasons that the courses offered
require these qualities and that the students are just becoming men and must
assume the duties and obligations of men. Before the high school graduate elects
a university education in preference to other types of training such as vocational
and trade schools of the better sort, normal schools and teachers colleges, and
extension and correspondence courses, he should carefully consider whether he is
willing to expend the effort and assume the responsibilities required of a university
student, and whether he has the abilities necessary for making the best use of the
opportunities offered by a university.

The first choice which the student must make is that between a long period of
studies and some immediate employment such as a mechanical trade, buying and
selling, or clerical work, which are preceded perhaps by a shorter period of special
training. As the boy approaches the period of responsible manhood, the kind of
training in final preparation for life may often be clearly indicated by the character
of his high school work.

Generally speaking, those who like their high school studies are more likely to
succeed in university courses. Of those who stand in the lowest fourth of their high
school classes, very few are successful in university work. Most of these would do
well to consider other types of training for a vocation in which they may be

About eighty per cent of those who stand in the first fourth of their high school
classes make satisfactory records in the university. It is very unfortunate for
those young people who have shown their aptitude for higher studies to be drawn
into employment immediately after high school when most of them are capable of
preparing for and assuming positions of responsibility and honor in industrial and
social life. Given good health and the power of application, those who like their
high school studies and stand high in them should make every effort to secure
college training.

The student who believes himself equipped for a university education is faced
with a further problem. Which of the seven colleges of the University should he
enter, and what type of course should he pursue? The wise student will make his
decision after an inventory of his interests and abilities, and will avoid a choice that
does not open to him opportunities to use to the fullest his abilities. The deans
of the various colleges of the University are at all times glad to be of assistance
to the student in making his choice. It is the purpose of this bulletin to furnish
information which may lie helpful.



The University recognizes the need of giving its newly entering students an intro-
duction to their work and to university life, which is new and strange to them.
Accordingly, freshmen are required to come to the University for one week before
classes begin, for a period of adjustment known as Freshman Week. This period,
from September 24th to September 29th, inclusive, will be used by the freshman
for the following duties:

1. Making his living arrangements.
2. Registration and paying his fees.
3. Physical examinations.
4. Psychological tests.
5. Other tests or examinations which will enable the faculty to place him in
the classes for which he is best fitted.
6. Hearing lectures on such subjects as the use of the Library and how to study.
7. Making visits to acquaint himself with the University Library. scientific
laboratories, and other points of interest in connection with his choice of
studies and future occupations.
S. Special exercises intended to acquaint him with the peculiar conditions or
requirements of the college which he enters.
9. Musical and social entertainments in the evenings arranged with the coopera-
tion of the Student Council and the various religious bodies.
10. Meeting with student government bodies in order to understand their

During the process of registration, faculty advisers talk with all students, help-
ing them to make the best selection of studies.

A committee on educational guidance maintains an office for conference with
freshmen regarding their general vocational and educational problems.

Administrative officers, faculty, student government councils, upper-class students.
and organizations for religious work all cooperate to make Freshman Week a period
during which the freshmen find themselves, learn how to go about their university
work, and how to profit by the opportunities for recreation and other activities in
addition to their studies,

A detailed program of Freshman Week will be supplied each applicant for


A strict attendance check will be kept on all Freshman Week conferences. Ab-
sences will be charged as class absences. The University reserves the right to refuse
admission to any student who wilfully absents himself from any of these conferences.



The University is organized in schools, colleges, and divisions, as follows:



















Brief summarized statements of the courses of study offered by the University of
Florida. together with the degree to which each leads, are listed below.

A full outline of each of these courses of study, together with descriptions of the
subject matter courses which they include, will be found in the Bulletin of Courses.

This announcement may be obtained by addressing the Registrar. University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida.


The College of Agriculture is composed of three divisions; Resident Instruction.
Experiment Station and Agricultural Extension Service.

Resident Instruction. Courses leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Agri-
culture.-The curriculum of the College of Agriculture is designed to give students
the underlying principles involved in the science and practice of agriculture. Be-
cause of the vital relation of the basic sciences to the principles in agriculture, it is
necessary to include some foundation courses such as chemistry, biology, etc., along
with the technical agricultural subjects. The work of the first two years is devoted
in a large measure to foundation courses, but the work during the second two years
is rather flexible, allowing the student to do more concentrated and specialized study
in his chosen field of endeavor. While it is necessary for a student to do some
specialization in his undergraduate study, it is advisable for him to take the intro-
ductory courses in each branch of agriculture. Students are urged to elect their
chosen field of endeavor as early as possible In any event, this must be done by
the beginning of the junior year from one of the following departments: Agricul-
tural Chemistry, Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Education, Agricultural
Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Botany and Bacteriology, Entomology
and Plant Pathology, Horticulture, Poultry Husbandry.

Short Course in Agriculture.-Students eighteen years of age or over, who desire
only practical agriculture in some special field, may register in the University as
special students, and elect such courses as best suit their work or desires. A stu-
dent may take from one to four semesters of special study, although each semester
is as nearly complete as possible. If a student can not meet the college entrance
requirements, it is usually advisable for him to elect those courses numbered below
100 in the catalog.

Special One-Week Courses in Agriculture.-In addition to the degree and short
courses in agriculture, a number of one-week special lectures are offered in such
subjects as Dairying, Citrus Culture. Floriculture, Poultry, etc. Those interested in
such special courses may obtain detailed information about them by writing to the
Dean of the College of Agriculture.



(Under the Direction of the Dean of the College of Agriculture)
The Agricultural Experiment Stations.-The Experiment Station, supported by
both State and Federal funds, is primarily the research division of the College of
Agriculture. A wide variety of fundamental and practical problems in agriculture
are studied by the Station staff members. For such studies a number of research
laboratories, greenhouses, experimental gardens and farms are utilized, either on the
campus or in various parts of the State. These research facilities furnish additional
opportunities for students to become acquainted with the solving of the various
problems confronting agriculture. By working in the Station's laboratories and
fields, a limited number of advanced students are enabled to earn part of their
expenses while they are attending the University.
Agricultural Extension Service.-The primary purpose of the Agricultural Exten-
sion Service is to extend new facts and improved methods in agriculture to the
farmers of the State. This service is, in a large measure, educational in nature for
it attempts to teach the farm and rural people how to cope with their problems.
County, State, and Federal funds contribute to the support of this organization
which has headquarters in Gainesville. A large number of workers are employed in
this service at Gainesville and in most counties of the State. These workers occupy
positions known as County Agents, District Agents, Club Agents, Home Demonstra-
tion Agents, and Specialists in various fields of agriculture. Through those agents
the Agricultural Extension Service fosters and supports a system of practical educa-
tion for all classes of farm people. This educational program is realized through
farmers' meetings, demonstration clubs, boys' and girls' clubs of various kinds, fair
exhibits, recreational camps for farm boys and girls, radio programs, and publica-
tions. The Extension Service sponsors and directs the various contests and fair
exhibits, such as the Corn and Pig Club Contest, and the State Egg Laying Contest.
Another important function of the Extension Service is the administration of a
large part of the provisions of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, Crop Control, Farm
Loans, etc.


The School of Architecture and Allied Arts offers three four-year courses, one
leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Architecture, one to the degree of
Bachelor of Fine Arts, and one leading to the degree Bachelor of Commercial Art.
Special courses which do not lead to a degree are also offered under certain circum-
stances, for mature students who are adequately prepared.
The Curriculum in Architecture has been devised to meet the needs of those who
desire to become general practitioners or architectural designers, draftsmen, build-
ing inspectors, contractors or structural designers, etc.
The curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts is devised to pre-
pare students by means of sound training in drawing, composition and design, and
in the use of color, for such fields of endeavor as advertising design, illustration,
mural and portrait painting.
The curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Art is offered in
recognition of the demands of industry for designers of all types where beauty is
a recognized asset.



The curricula offered in the College of Arts and Sciences are designed to give the
student a broad, basic knowledge of the humanities, the social sciences, and the
physical and biological sciences. Opportunity is provided for concentration and the
development of special techniques.
The course of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts Degree.-This is a four-year
course in which the humanities and social sciences are emphasized. The study of
foreign language is given some prominence, both ancient and modern languages being
offered. College English, foreign language, and mathematics are required of every
student electing this course, and to insure some understanding of scientific fact and
method, every student is requried to study a basic year course in one of the natural
sciences, in addition to which he may elect a limited amount of work in natural
science if he so desires.
The course of study leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree.-Students who are
interested primarily in the sciences may hope to gain a thorough introduction to the
natural sciences and a working grasp of scientific methods by pursuing this four-
year curriculum. Each student must select one science, in which he is expected to
gain a mastery. A limited amount of foreign-language study is required in order
that the student may have a reading knowledge of scientific writings from other
countries. The candidate for this degree is expected also to acquire breadth of view-
point and training by devoting some time to the study of mathematics. English.
and kindred subjects.
The combined Academic and Law Course.-Students of superior ability may meet
the requirement for admission to the College of Law by pursuing the combined
academic law course. In this course a fixed amount of law credit may be sub-
stituted for free electives in either the A. B. course or the B. S. course. Under
this arrangement the student may earn one of the above degrees, together with a
degree in law, by three years of intensive study in the College of Arts and Sciences,
followed by three years of study in the College of Law. The bachelor's degree in
arts or sciences will not be conferred until the candidate has satisfied the require-
ments of the College of Arts and Sciences, and until he has satisfactorily completed
one full year in the College of Law.
The Pre-Mcdical Course.-A three-year pre-medical course is offered to meet the
requirements of some medical schools. Students wishing to attend medical schools
requiring more than three years of pre-medical training can meet the requirement
by taking the three-year pre-medical course here described, following which they
can be registered as B.S. students. Emphasis is placed on a good foundation in
biology and physics, while special emphasis is given to the study of chemistry.
Pre-Dental Course.-For most students this course is identical with the first year
of the pre-inedical course. The student should correspond with the dean of the
dental college which he wishes to enter in order that he may know the exact require-
ments for entrance to that college. Every legitimate effort will be made to meet
these requirements within one academic year, unless the dental college specifies a
longer period of pre-dental training.
The course of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.-
The curriculum in Journalism has been constructed with the major purpose of pro-
viding a course of study that is best adapted to establishing the proper relationship


between instruction in the necessary technical fundamentals and the broadest
possible cultural subjects.
Instruction in Journalism proceeds upon the belief that the press is one of civiliza-
tion's most powerful instruments for social order and social statecraft, and that the
increasing appreciation of its functions as an educational agency augments the
demand for journalistic workers who are thoroughly prepared in cultural breadth
as well as specialized technique. It does not profess to train finished newspaper
men, but it does attempt to provide instruction that will tend to shorten the period
of apprenticeship through which all persons who enter the profession of journalism
must go. It attempts to help students formulate a method of applying the realisms
of social and pure science to the realities of the public life of a journalist.
The cultural courses consist of such subjects as economics, English, foreign
language, history, journalism, laboratory science, mathematics, philosophy, political
science, psychology, and sociology, and are designed to provide a broad cultural
background for the student. The technical courses are intended to give the student
the necessary training in journalistic writing and editing, and an acquaintance with
the fundamentals of the editorial and business conduct of newspapers. The workers
on modern newspapers and periodicals deal with all phases of complex civilization,
and they must possess a thorough training in cultural backgrounds as well as the
technique of journalistic procedure.
For the convenience of students who may wish to emphasize inclinations toward
the writing or business phases of journalistic activities, the curriculum for the
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Journalism is divided into two parts: Newspaper
Writing; and Newspaper Management.
Students who are primarily interested in the broad, cultural, and intellectual
training which the study of journalism affords, rather than the study of journalism
as a profession for a career, may select journalism as a .major for the degree of
Bachelor of Arts. A major in Journalism consists of at least eighteen semester
hours credit in courses in Journalism above the elementary year-course.


The College of Business Administration offers two types of curricula leading to
the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration : first, the Curriculum
in Business Administration Proper; and second, the Curriculum in Combination
with Law
The Curriculum in Business Administration Proper.-This curriculum extends
over a period of four years. It contains both general and professional courses.
The first two years are devoted wholly to required subjects largely cultural in
nature and are intended to provide the student with a broad intellectual foundation.
The last two years provide an opportunity for professional specialization in eight
different fields of business. These eight groups are arranged in such a way as to
provide the student with an outline of courses in that field of business which best
fits his needs and interests.
The Curriculum in Combination iith Lwmw.-The College of Business Administra-
tion combines with the College of Law in offering a six-year program of study to
students who desire ultimately to enter the College of Law. Students register dur-
ing the first three years in the College of Business Administration and when they
have fully satisfied the academic requirements of these three years, they are eligible


to register in the College of Law and may during their last three years complete
the course in the College of Law. When students, after entering the College of Law.
have satisfactorily completed one year's work in law, they may offer this year of
work as a substitute for the fourth year in the College of Business Administration
and receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.


The College of Education offers courses designed to furnish its students with such
training as will be most useful to them in the profession of teaching, preparing
them for positions as teachers, principals, supervisors, and city and county super-
intendents of public instruction.
The course leading to the Normal Diploma is a two-year course leading to what
is sometimes called the L.I. degree. The diploma entitles the holder to a Graduate
State Certificate, valid for five years, and permits the holder to teach, through the

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


The College of Engineering offers four-year courses of study leading to the
Bachelor of Science degree in the five professional fields described below. The


work of the freshman year is the same for all engineering students, so a student
is not required to choose the branch of engineering he wishes to follow before the
beginning of his sophomore year.

Instruction in all departments of the College of Engineering is given in both
theory and practice. Accuracy, neatness and systematic presentation are required
in all class and home study drawings and problems. It is the aim of these courses
to train prospective young engineers to be original and independent in thought.

The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering.-
The courses in chemical engineering are designed to familiarize the student with
the efficient construction and economic operation of chemical plants. The problems
involved in the commercial manufacture of organic and inorganic chemicals, and the
methods employed to solve these problems, are considered in detail.

The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Cicil Engineering.-In this
department the courses are designed to give the student a comprehensive grasp of
the principles underlying the practice of civil engineering. The class work covering
the theory of the different branches of civil engineering is supplemented by as much
work as is practicable in design, drawing, laboratory, and field practice. The
graduates are qualified to perform the duties assigned to young engineers in general
engineering, or in the special branches such as hydraulic, highway, railroad, sani-
tary, structural, and topographical engineering.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.-
The Department of Electrical Engineering endeavors to give the student thorough
instruction in the principles of electrical design, installation, and operation. Con-
sideration is given to problems pertaining to the generation, transmission, distri-
bution, and utilization of electrical energy. Students may select electives in the
fields of communication, transmission, distribution, generation, and electric power
plant design.

This course presents a grouping of the essential and fundamental courses in both
the College of Engineering and the College of Business Administration. The pur-
pose of the curriculum is to give a student in four years as much as possible of the
training of the Electrical and Mechanical Engineer and in addition about fifty
credits of work in Business Administration.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.-
Mechanical Engineering may be said to be a basic engineering course because it
deals with power and machines used to generate power, a field so broad as to include
all lines of industry. The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers, in addition
to the usual basic fundamental courses including power engineering and mechanical
design, some specialized courses in Aeronautics, Aerodynamics, Heating and Venti-
lating and Refrigeration. The graduate taking this branch of engineering is well
qualified to readily adjust himself and give efficient service in industries and public
utility companies.

The aim of the College, which is a member of the Association of American Law
Schools, registered by the New York Board of Regents, and an approved school
of the American Bar Association, is to impart a thorough scientific and practical
knowledge of the law. Receiving only students of good academic preparation, it
gives them intensive training for the practice of law. Instruction covers the
cultural, ethical, technical, and practical aspects of the profession. Sufficient
courses are offered to enable a student to gain some specialization in the field of
his choice. As much as six semester hours in Legal Research, under faculty super-
vision, may be offered for a degree, thereby enabling a student to do considerable
creative work. Emphasis is given to Pleading and Practice, and the theory is
applied in the Practice Court. Students are given an extensive working knowledge
of Florida law, and graduates are admitted to the state and federal bars without
A three-year course is offered, eighty-five semester hours being required for the
degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.). Students who have a quality point average
of 2 for all the law work offered for graduation will be eligible for the degree of
LL.B. with honors. Those who have a quality point average of 2.5 for all the law
work offered for graduation, which work must include Legal Research, will be
eligible for the degree of LL.B. with high honors.


As a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the School
receives due recognition for its courses from state boards of pharmacy requiring
graduation from a school of pharmacy of membership rank as a prerequisite for
examination and registration. The curricula are designed to provide a broad
scientific education, to train retail pharmacists, and through the selection of electives
to provide opportunities for specialization in commercial pharmacy, pharmaceutical
chemistry, pharmacognosy, or pharmacology.
The course leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy.-This course
leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy. It is designed to meet the
needs of those students preparing themselves for store managers, manufacturers,


or dispensers of medical products in retail pharmacies, public hospitals and the
U. S. Army and Navy.
Medicinal Plant Garden.-The Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmacology
maintains a drug garden which serves for three purposes: (1) as a teaching adjunct
offering the students an opportunity to study the methods of propagation, cultiva-
tion, curing, and preparation of drug plants for market; (2) as a source of supply
of fresh plant material for classroom and laboratory, and also for investigation;
(3) to carry on cultural experiments in the growing of various medicinal plants.


The University Summer Term is an integral part of the University. The College
of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Law, the College of
Business Administration, the College of Agriculture, and the Graduate School remain
open during the summer. Emphasis is placed upon college and graduate work,
no work of high school rank being offered.
Since women are admitted to the Summer Term, many professional courses for
primary and elementary school teachers are offered in addition to those usually
given in the winter session.




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


A program of vocational guidance is carried on for the students through a series
of tests, through interviews, and through the application of scientific occupational
information. In addition, the Bureau offers a service to those encountering mental
difficulties which interfere with their scholastic work. Further information con-
cerning these services may be obtained from the Bulletin of the Bureau of Voca-
tional Guidance and Mental Hygiene.


A special bulletin, giving views of the campus, and a description of the University
of Florida Plant, is published. It will be sent to all who request it.


The libraries of the University are: the General Library, the Experiment Station
Library, the General Extension Division Library, the Law Library, the Museum
Library, and the P. K. Yonge Laboratory School Library. This last is the newest
and is located in the new P. K. Yonge Laboratory School. The libraries now contain
over 105,000 volumes.
The General Library is housed in the Library Building, a modern fire-proof struc-
ture, with a seating capacity of between 750 and 800, and a stack capacity of 200,000
volumes. There are 48 carrels in the stacks for the use of faculty and graduate
students. The equipment includes standard steel stacks, an automatic book con-
veyor, a pneumatic tube system, and an elevator. Both by gift and by purchase
special effort has been made to gather a collection of Floridiana, material concerning


Florida and written by Floridians. This collection is housed in the Florida Room,
separate from the general stacks.
The Library contains a good working collection, including general reference
books, such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, yearbooks and handbooks. Included also
are standard encyclopedias and dictionaries in foreign languages. Particular atten-
tion is paid to files of bound periodicals in both English and foreign languages.
These are important in reference and research work, and are used by students
and faculty. Many of the files go back to the first volume, and others to early
volumes, which increases their value for reference and research work. Every effort
is being made to complete these files as rapidly as possible.
The University Library is a depository for the official publications of the United
States Government. The Library receives valuable studies from universities, learned
societies, and other organizations on exchange. It receives regularly by subscription
421, and by gift and exchange 455 periodicals of a general and scientific nature.
Many daily and weekly state newspapers send complimentary copies. These papers
are filed and when funds permit will be bound.
The Library welcomes every opportunity to be of assistance to both faculty and
students. In addition to an open shelf browsing collection of over 1400 volumes,
recreational reading is fostered by means of a book display on special subjects
which is changed every week and a smaller display which contains books of timely
interest. Bibliographies are prepared and information is collected for class work.
Special attention is given to collecting material for the various phases of debate
activity. Lectures on the use of the library, including the card catalog and the more
used reference books, are given to the freshmen during Freshman Week.
The Library is open from 7:45 A. M. to 10:00 P. M. every week day except Satur-
day, when it closes at 5:00 P. M. During the first and second terms it is open on
Sunday from 2 to 5 P. M.


The course in Military Science is required of all physically qualified freshmen
and sophomores except students in the College of Law, adult special students, and
students transferring from other universities or colleges.
Students who complete the basic course and are selected by the Professor of
Military Science and Tactics and the President of the University may elect the
advanced courses. Students electing these courses must carry them to completion
as a prerequisite to graduation. Upon the completion of these courses, those stu-
dents recommended by the Professor of Military Science and Tactics and the Presi-
dent of the University will, upon their own application, be offered a commission
in the Officers Reserve Corps, United States Army. An advanced course in summer
camp is compulsory, usually between the junior and senior years. The War Depart-
ment pays all expenses, including mileage, rations, medical attendance, clothing, and
laundry service, and in addition the pay of the seventh grade, United States Army.


The General Extension Division of the University of Florida serves the people of
the state by offering educational opportunities to those who are removed from the


campus, and assists in promoting the general advancement of the people through
numerous service functions.
The Division represents the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Engineering,
Law, Business Administration and the School of Pharmacy of the University, and
the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Education and Music of the
State College for Women.
The work is carried on through departments. The Extension Teaching Depart-
ment offers courses by correspondence study and in extension classes. Short
courses, community institutes, and conferences are held to give opportunity for
discussion on problems confronting groups or communities. The Department of
Auditory Instruction offers cultural programs, instruction, information, and enter-
tainment by lectures and discussion for the benefit of special groups, schools, and
Training for naturalization, citizenship schools, and cooperation with the War
Department in enrolling young men for the Citizens' Military Training Camps be-
cause of their educational value, are some phases of the work of the Department of
Citizenship Training.
Through the Departments of Visual Instruction and General Information and
Service, the outside world of letters and arts and music is carried to thousands in
the back country through the traveling libraries and art exhibits which are sent out.
A picture of the world and its work is circulated in the slides and filmslides fur-
nished for instruction and entertainment. The best in recorded music is provided for
work in music appreciation and for culture.
These and the various service functions of the Division establish contacts which
enable the University to aid individuals, organizations, and communities, and con-
tribute much to adult education.


The Division of Music offers opportunity for membership in three musical organ-
izations: The Military Band, the Orchestra, and the Glee Club.
The Band is made up in part of students in the freshman and sophomore years
who take military training. The Band frequently plays at athletic contests and
takes several trips a year.
The Orchestra plays at the regular Convocations.
The Glee Club makes several trips a year throughout the state.
Opportunities are afforded qualified students to broadcast as soloists, instru-
mentally or vocally, over the radio station WRUF.
Private lessons in violin, orchestra instruments, band instruments, voice, organ,
and piano may be arranged. Tuition will be required of all students taking private


The Office of the Dean of Students deals with students' personal problems and
with organized student activities. While this office deals mainly with students in
organized groups, the problems of the individuals are never neglected. Special at-
tention is given to those students who need help in matters of adjustment to courses,
housing conditions, employment, scholarships, delinquent grades, etc. Communica-
tions from parents relative to the work of their sons while at the University will



be appreciated, and this office will take pleasure in making every effort to secure
proper adjustment of the student to his college environment.
During Freshman Week every possible effort is made to orient the incoming fresh-
man. The entire period is given over to activities which will guide him in his
selection of the right course of study. For detailed information concerning the
activities of Freshman Week, see the Bulletin of Freshman Week.
Any student making a grade of below C during any six weeks' period is required
to interview the dean of his college and the Dean of Students.
The Bureau of Placements, under the direction of the Dean of Students, seeks to
assist all graduates in securing positions. Students are urged to avail themselves
of the facilities of this Bureau.
The Dean of Students is Chairman of the Committee on Social Activities, which
has charge of working out the social calendar of the student organizations.


In view of the fact that there are comparatively few positions on the campus and
in the city of Gainesville, it is strongly urged that no freshman come to the Uni-
versity with the expectation of depending very largely upon his earnings during his
first college year.
The Committee on Self-Help, of which the Assistant Dean of Students is Chair-
man, undertakes to award positions on the campus to deserving UPPERCLASSMEN.
The following conditions will govern it in making assignments:
a. The scholastic record of the student will be taken into consideration. No
student failing as much as six hours will be considered. No student falling
below an average of C will be considered.
b. Preference will be given to those having experience.
c. The financial condition of the student will be taken into consideration.
d. No graduate students will be used except as graduate assistants in positions
requiring the training which the student has secured in college.
e. No student on probation of any kind will be given a position. If, while hold-
ing one, he is placed on probation, he will be required to resign the position.
f. A student may not hold two University positions the combined salaries of
which exceed $100 per year.
Unskilled labor is paid for at the present time at the rate of thirty cents per hour;
skilled labor is proportionately compensated. Undergraduate laboratory assistants
are paid by the hour according to the following schedule:
Sophom ores ...................................... ------- .... ... .. .. ................$ .30
Juniors ...................-- --- --......................... ----------------------------------.......... ............... .35
Seniors ............--.........................-----------------------------.....--......................------------.................--..................... .40
A few students are employed as waiters, as janitors, and in other capacities. Such
employment, as a rule, is not given to a student otherwise financially able to attend
the University. Application for employment should be made to the Dean of Students.



Through the Students' Health Service the University makes available to any stu-
dent physical examinations, health consultations, and medical attention. General
service is provided free of charge, but special fees are charged for services which
are individual in character, such as dentistry, X-rays, board and laundry in the
Infirmary, special drugs and serums, major surgery, special nurses, etc. No stu-
dent, however, will be denied service because of inability to pay these fees.
The University Infirmary and the offices of the Health Service are located on the
campus. The Infirmary is open at all hours, day or night, for the admission of
patients. The Resident Physician lives at the Infirmary and his services are avail-
able at all hours, in case of emergency. The Dispensary, which is located in the
Infirmary building, is open from 7:30 to 9 A. M., from 12 noon to 1 P. M. and from 4
to 7 P. Mr., during which time physicians are in attendance and may be consulted.
It is the aim of the Health Service, not only to function as a Health Service and
render preventive measures, but to provide full hospital care in cases of illness. The
Infirmary is rated as a Fully Approved Hospital by the Examining Board of the
American College of Surgeons.
The facilities of the Dispensary are such that any number of students can be given
attention in a day. The Dispensary is maintained in order to offer conferences with
physicians, examinations, diagnosis and treatment of minor injuries and illnesses
which a student may suffer. The student is encouraged to use this service freely,
in order that he may avoid more serious illnesses by the lack of, or from improper
treatment. In the Dispensary, a modern, well equipped drug room is maintained,
which furnishes the necessary drugs to the student, without charge. A laboratory
is operated in connection with the Infirmary and Dispensary and is in charge of a
trained nurse-technician, thereby rendering efficient service in assisting in prompt
diagnosis. The normal capacity of the Infirmary is 45 beds. In emergencies, this
capacity can be increased. Ample provisions are made for the isolation of com-
municable diseases. A completely equipped operating room is maintained to provide
proper facilities for major surgical operations. The Infirmary is also equipped with
a mobile unit X-ray, which is used for the examination of fractures, but the equip-
ment does not provide sufficient service for an extensive diagnostic X-ray study
of the intestinal tract, etc. This service is made available to the students at actual
cost of the materials used.
The Health Service has been established for the purpose of safeguarding the
health of students. Its aims are: (1) to help each student entering the University
of Florida to possess a healthy, vigorous, active and harmoniously developed body,
thereby contributing much to his success while in college and in later life; (2) to
reduce to the very minimum the prodigious academic and economic loss due to indis-
position and illness of students. Positive health is its goal.
Students enrolling in the University for the first time are furnished a physical
examination form by the Registrar's Office, which is to be completed by the family
physician and pinned to Registration papers. On admission, the student is given a
careful physical examination by the University Physician. It is necessary that this
physical examination by the home physician be completed in order that parents may
be aware of abnormalities, which should be corrected prior to the student's entrance
in the University, as the correction of these defects is necessary in order that he
may be in proper physical condition before leaving home.


There are three principal phases of the activities of the University Health Service:
(1) personal attention, (2) sanitation, and (3) education.
1. Personal Division.-This division is concerned with the physical examination
of students. A complete record of the physical condition of each student is made
and filed when he is admitted to the University. From this record can be de-
termined, in large measure, what procedure is essential to keep the student in the
best physical condition during his academic life. The following are some of the
phases of the work in the personal division:
a. Provision for maintaining the health of normal, physically sound students;
cooperation with the Department of Physical Education regarding physical
exercise; education concerning right living; safeguarding of environment.
b. Protection of the physically sound students from communicable diseases; early
detection and isolation of all cases of communicable diseases-tuberculosis,
diptheria, scarlet fever, measles, typhoid fever, smallpox, mumps, etc.
c. Provision for the care and treatment of such cases of communicable diseases-
isolation hospital.
d. Treatment and professional care of all students who are ill or in need of
medical advice or treatment. For extended care by the Health Service it is
necessary that the student enter the Infirmary. Any student may be admitted
to the Infirmary upon the recommendation of the University Physician. To
all patients in the Infirmary the staff will furnish medical and nursing
e. Reconstruction and reclamation: corrections of defects, advice, and treatment
of all abnormalities.
2. Division of Sanitation.-The student's environment should be made as hygienic
as possible. Hence, this division concerns itself with the sanitary conditions both
on and off the campus.
3. Education.-Every student in the University is made familiar with the funda-
mentals of both personal and public hygiene. Through personal conferences on this
subject, education in hygiene and right living is conducted.


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


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




The University, through its Committee on Admissions, reserves the right to deny
admission to students who are not residents of the State of Florida.
The University of Florida is not co-educational. The State supported institution
of higher learning for women is the Florida State College for Women, at Tallahassee.


Admission of male students to the schools or colleges of the University which
accept students directly from high schools may be obtained:
(1) By presenting a certificate of graduation from an accredited high school,
(2) By passing entrance examinations,
(3) By qualifying as an adult special student, or
(4) By submitting a certified record of credits from a recognized institution of
higher learning.
These methods are described in detail below.


The candidate for admission must present a certificate of graduation from an
accredited preparatory school (a list of accredited high schools in the State of
Florida will be found on pages 125 to 128). Certificates representing examinations
given by the College Entrance Board or the New York Regents are likewise accepted.
The candidate must offer at least fifteen acceptable units, of which twelve must be
academic units (English, mathematics, science, history, and foreign language),
including nine required units as follows: (For description of the units allowed in
the groups see pages 121 and 122).
Group I.-English ..............------------........---.........--...........---------........-----------.................... 3 units

No condition will be permitted in the nine required units listed above.
Note 1. Students unable to meet the Group II requirement may present a total
of four units in Groups III and V, in lieu of this requirement. Students are advised
to present at least two units in one foreign language. Students entering the College
of Business Administration without two units in one foreign language are required
to take three semester hours in a foreign language in college for each unit deficiency.
This language must be taken in the freshman year and gives no credit toward a
The amount of college credit in a foreign language required in the College of
Arts and Sciences is reduced for those students having high school units in one or
more foreign languages.


Note 2. Students entering the College of Engineering are required to present
the four units listed in Group IV, (see below). In exceptional cases, students who
have but three of these units may be admitted to this college provided they pass
satisfactorily the Engineering Qualifying Examination. However, such students
must remove the deficiencies before they may register for the sophomore year.
The course in Architecture requires all the units in Group IV (see below) with
the exception of one-half unit in advanced algebra. Students may be admitted to
that course with two and one-half units in Group IV, but they must remove the
deficiencies before they may register for the sophomore year.

Short courses in Agriculture.- The candidate may be admitted to either the four-
months or the one-year course in Agriculture without the required high school
entrance units. However, such students may register for courses in the agricultural
departments only.

An applicant to the College of Education must submit satisfactory evidence of a
desirable foundation for teacher training as shown by his standing in high school,
by placement tests and other tests which may be given, and as may be ascertained
by conferences with him both before and during Freshman Week.


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


Applicants for admission to the College of Law must be eighteen years of age,
and must have received a degree in arts or science in a college or university of
approved standing, or must be eligible for a degree in a combined course in the Uni-
versity, upon the completion of one year of work in the College of Law.
Women Students.-Women students who are twenty-one years of age and who
fully meet the entrance requirements of the College may enter as candidates for
Special Students.-Special students are not admitted to the College.
Advanced Standing.-No work in law done in other institutions will be accepted
towards a degree unless the applicant passes satisfactorily the examinations held
in the subjects in question in this College, or unless credit is given without examina-
tion. Credit of an average of C from schools which are members of the Association
of American Law Schools, of which this College is a member, will be accepted with-
out examination. In no case will credit be given for work not done in residence at
an approved law school.



Graduates of non-accredited high schools who present at least fifteen acceptable
units, including the nine required units listed on page 120, may be admitted provided
they pass entrance examinations in the following subjects:
English-Rhetoric and composition; American and English
Mathematics-First year algebra, plane geometry
History-one unit
Science-one unit
Non-graduates of accredited or non-accredited high schools are required to take
examinations in all subjects offered for admission.
A college aptitude test will ordinarily be given in lieu of the above examinations.
Entrance examinations will be given on the dates published in the University
Calendar. Students failing to take the examinations on these dates will be required
to pay a special examination fee of $5.

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

The University accepts credits toward advanced standing from all reputable col-
leges and universities. Such credits are accepted as far as they represent courses
equivalent to those offered in this institution, if the grades are sufficiently high to
meet the quality credit requirement. The certified record of courses taken in other
institutions must be upon the official blank of the institution granting the cer-
tificate and should show:
a. The subject studied, the catalog course number, and the descriptive title.
b. The number of weeks and hours a week spent upon each subject.
c. The value of the course expressed in credits.
d. The exact grades, accompanied by an explanation of the marking system
e. A list of the preparatory units presented upon entrance.
f. A letter or statement of honorable dismissal.
Applications for advanced standing should be made, if possible, at least one
month before the student expects to enter the University.
Upon the University's receipt of a transcript of credit, the candidate will be
mailed an application for admission. When this is returned, properly filled out,
the Registrar will present the applicant with a certificate of admission, giving the
applicant's classification and directions for registration.
All statements concerning advanced standing and classification are provisional,
subject to the satisfactory completion of one year's work at the University by the


Students who, because of failure in studies, are not allowed to return to the
institution they last attended, or who failed in half of their work during the last
period they attended that institution, will be denied admission to the University
of Florida.
The following institutions in the State of Florida are fully accredited institutions
because of their membership in the Southern Association of Secondary Schools
and Colleges:
The Florida State College for Women, Tallahassee

Upon receipt of the credentials at the University, the candidate will be sent an
application blank. When this is returned, the applicant will be sent an admission
certificate containing directions for registration.
A preparatory record will not be accepted unless it comes directly from the prin-
cipal to the Registrar.
A student will not be allowed to register until his credits have been received and
Recommendation.-Prospective candidates for admission who are deficient in the
specific entrance requirements required by the individual colleges (see page 123)
are advised to make up the deficiency prior to registration by attending the
Summer Session, by correspondence-study, or otherwise. See the Bulletin of the

on the basis of a normal load of 15 semester-hours. These students shall not be
entitled to any of the privileges attached to any other University fee.


Adult special students who already hold a recognized under-graduate degree, and
who register for the first term only in order to meet the special requirements, in
Education, Medicine, etc.. shall pay the regular fees, but shall be entitled to the
usual refund (see below) at the end of the semester. During the registration
period, such students should mark clearly on their personnel card that they intend

After a student has attended classes for three days. he is not entitled to any
refund except upon the unused portion of his breakage book. Students resigning
before they have attended classes for three days are entitled to a refund of all fees
except the registration and contingent fee of $7.50. This fee is never refunded.
Fees are charged for the entire session to those students who register in Sep-
tember. If a student intends to register for the first term only and presents satis-
factory reasons to the Registrar on or before the date of registration, he will be
entitled to a refund at the end of the first term of $13 (i. e. $9.25 from his student
activity fee, and $3.75 for one-half of the Infirmary Fee). If the student desires a
Seminole the refund will be only $9.50.
Students graduating at the end of the first term, and having paid all fees, will
be entitled to a refund of $13, as listed above. Students in the College of Business
Administration may also receive a refund of $5, one-half the tuition paid in that

The University operates three dormitories, New Dormitory. Thomas Hall, and
Buckman Hall, accommodating altogether about five hundred students. Except in
case of special reasons, it is recommended that freshmen room in one of the dormi-

The University of Florida is unfortunate in the fewness of scholarships and
loans which are open to students. Generally, the scholarships and loans which are
available are administered directly by the donors. However, the Committee on
Scholarships, of which the Dean of Students is chairman, collects all information
relative to vacancies, basis of award, value, and other pertinent facts and supplies
this information to interested students. The Committee also collects information
on applicants and supplies this information to the donors. In some instances, the
Committee has been given authority to make the awards without consulting the
While scholarship, as evidenced by scholastic attainment, is an important feature
in making awards, it is by no means the only thing taken into consideration. The
student's potential capacity to profit by college training and to make reasonable re-
turns to society is a large factor in making all awards.
Inquiries relative to scholarships and loans should be addressed to the Dean of
Students, University of Florida, Gainesville.
County Agricultural Scholarships.-Provision has been made by a legislative act
for a scholarship from each county-to be offered and provided for at the discretion
of the Board of County Commissioners of each county. The recipient is to be
selected by competitive examination. The value of each scholarship is a sum suf-
ficient to pay for board in the dining hall and room in the dormitory. Whether such
a scholarship has been provided for by any county may be learned from the Clerk
of the Board of County Commissioners, or the County Agent of the county in ques-
tion. Questions for the examination are provided and papers graded by the Uni-
versity if desired.
Vocational Rehabilitation Scholarships.-The Department of Vocational Rehabili-
tation is willing to aid any citizen of Florida who can give evidence of being pre-
pared to enter college, and who gives promise of being a successful student, provided
that he has sustained, by reason of physical impairment, a vocational handicap;
and provided the course which he selects can be reasonably expected to fit him to
earn a livelihood. The sum spent on recipients of this fund at the University of
Florida during the present year will amount to approximately one hundred dollars
per student. Inquiries for these scholarships should be addressed to Mr. Claude M.
Andrews, State Supervisor of Vocational Rehabilitation, Tallahassee, Florida.
Rotary Loan Fund.-The Rotarians of Florida have set aside a considerable sum
of money to be used in making loans to worthy boys who would not otherwise be

Attitude Concerning Scholarships for Athletes.-At a recent meeting of the newly-
formed Southern Conference, there were adopted resolutions concerning the award-
ing of scholarships to athletes. These resolutions were practically identical with
those set up at the University of Florida. The attitude of the Department of Ath-
letics of the University of Florida is that scholarships for athletes should be ad-
ministered and controlled by the same committee which administers other scholar-
ships; that all awards should be made on a loan basis and predicated upon the donee
being needy and maintaining an average of C or better. It is believed that if this
policy is adhered to throughout the Southeastern Conference, athletic standards will
be much improved and the contribution which intercollegiate sports play in the life
of undergraduates will become much more marked and lasting.

The Intramural Department is headed by the Intramural Director, a member
of the staff of the Athletic Department, who is assisted by an administrative board
composed of the Athletic Director, Director of Required Physical Education. Presi-
dent of the Student Athletic Council, and Senior Managers. In addition to the
administrative personnel, it might be appropriately added that the actual execution
of the program itself is conducted by the managerial board composed of students
of the University.
The function of the Intramural Department is to encourage the entire student
body to participate in organized athletic sports and also to encourage participa-
tion in wholesome active recreation. The Department, therefore, provides facilities
for such competition and recreation; organizes and promotes competition between
students, groups and individuals; and fosters a spirit of fair play and sportsman-
ship among participants and spectators.
The program of intramural activities includes the following sports: Golf, swim-
ming, horseshoes, cross country, volleyball, touch football, basketball, boxing,
wrestling, diamond ball, tennis, handball, water basketball, track, fencing, gym-
nastics, and Sigma Delta Psi (national athletic fraternity) events.
The proper utilization of leisure time through recreation and play finds splendid
expression in this program. It is estimated that over 1,800 different students (72 per
cent) take part in some sport sponsored by the Deparment. Experience indicates


that there is a decided trend in the student body toward the expansion of recrea-
tional facilities to a large group of students as opposed to intense competition for
the few as evidenced in intramural athletics. Investigation into the programs in
effect in other Southern colleges and universities reveals the fact that the Intra-
mural Department is without peer in the South.

The Honor System.-One of the finest tributes to the character of the students
at the University of Florida is the fact that the Student Body is a self-governing
group. The details of the system by which this result is reached will be explained
to all freshmen during the first week of their enrollment in the University. How-
ever, each parent, as well as each prospective student, is urged to read the follow-
ing discussion of the Honor System carefully, as this phase of student government
forms the keystone of the entire system.
In addition to permitting student legislation on questions of interest to the
members of the Student Body execution of the laws passed and the expenditure of
student funds, the governing system at the University gives to the students the
privilege of disciplining themselves through the means of the Honor System.
Inaugurated by some of our greatest educators in higher institutions of the nation,
and early adopted in some departments of the University of Florida, the Honor
System was finally established in the entire University in 1914 through student
initiative. This plan, having met with the approval of all officials of the University,
was given the sanction of the Board of Control, and student representatives were
selected by the students to administer the system.
Among the basic principles of an Honor System are the convictions that self-
discipline is the greatest builder of character, that responsibility is a prerequisite
of self-respect, and that these are essential to the highest type of education.
Officials of the University and the Board of Control feel that students in the
University of Florida should be assumed to be honest and worthy of implicit trust,
and they display this confidence through the privilege of an Honor System.
In order to protect against the character deficiencies of a few men who may
violate the Honor Code, it becomes the duty of each member of the Student Body
not only to abide by the Honor Code but to report any violations he may observe
to the Honor Court. Many men coming to the University for the first time may
feel hesitant about assuming this responsibility, inasmuch as early school training
has created certain feelings of antipathy toward one who "tattle-tales" on a fellow-
student. The theory of an Honor System adequately overcomes this natural reac-
tion, however, when it is realized that this system is a student institution itself,
and not a faculty measure for student discipline, and that to be worthy of the
advantages of the Honor System each student must be strong enough to do his duty
in this regard. In this way the responsibility for each man's conduct is placed
where it must eventually rest-on himself.
The Honor Code of the Student Body is striking in its simplicity, yet it embodies
the fundamentals of sound character. Each man is pledged to refrain from:
(a) Cheating.
(b) Stealing.
(c) The passing of worthless checks.
On the basis of this Code, students are extended all privileges conceived to be
the basic rights of men of Honor. There are no proctors or spies in the examina-


tion rooms, each student feeling free to do his work, or to leave the room on
occasion. Fruits and supplies are placed openly on the campus, with the confi-
dence that each man will pay for any he may take. Every man is allowed to he
the keeper of his own conscience until he shall prove to his fellow-students that
he no longer deserves the trust placed in him.
A breach of the System may be very flagrant and serious, or it may be extenuated
by circumstances. It may need only mild corrective measures to help the violator
obtain a finer conception of right and wrong; it may need strong measures. To
enforce the System equitably and punish occasional infractions in every case, thl
students have established the Honor Court. The Court is composed of students
elected annually from the upper classes of the various colleges on the campus.
Their jurisdiction of all violations of the Honor Code is final, but with the privilege
of appeal by a student to the Faculty Discipline Committee, an appeal both as to
procedure and as to the merits of his case. It is significant, however, that since the
establishment of the Honor System in 1914, only one decision of the Honor Court
has been altered on appeal.
The penal purpose of the Honor Court should receive less stress, perhaps, than
its educational purpose, which is its most important function. The responsibility
of acquainting every member of the Student Body with the purpose, advantages,
and principles of the Honor System is placed upon members of the Court. In line
with this work, members of the Honor Court participate in the orientation program
each year during Freshman Week. In addition to a series of explanatory talks ft
that time, special chapel programs are conducted by the Honor Court during the
school year, Honor System talks are delivered in the various high schools of the
State upon request and at regularly scheduled times each spring, and radio pro-
grams are broadcast specially for the high schools from station WRUF in Gaines-
ville. In this way the Honor Court has endeavored to fulfill its responsibility to
the men who undertake the problem of self-government and self-discipline at the
University of Florida.
The parent of every prospective student should feel that it is his responsibility
to stress the paramount importance of honorable conduct on the part of his son
while he is attending the University of Florida. Dishonest action brings sorrow
to parent and student alike and seriously reflects on the home training of the culprit.
Because University students have proved worthy of the trust and responsibility
involved in administering an Honor System, this feature of student government
has prospered and has become the greatest student tradition at the University of
Florida. It must be remembered that, inasmuch as it is a student responsibility
primarily, the future of the System rests with each new class of students who enter
the University. University Faculty and authorities pledge their support to the
Honor System. Each student must support it, or, in failing to support it, con-
tribute to the loss of this tradition.

Student Government.-Student government in the University of Florida is a
cooperative organization based on mutual confidence between the student body and
the faculty. Considerable authority has been granted the Student Body for the
regulation and conduct of student affairs. The criterion in granting authority to
the Student Body has been the disposition of the students to accept responsibility
commensurate with the authority granted them. Generally speaking, the fields


of student activity include regulation of extra-curricula affairs and the administra-
tion of the Honor System.
Every enrolled student, having paid his activity fee, is a member of the Student
Body and has an equal vote in its government.
The University authorities feel that training in acceptance of responsibility for
the conduct of student affairs at the University is a very valuable part of the
educational growth of the individual student. The Student Body is practically a
body politic with sovereignty in itself, occupying its franchise under grant from the
Board of Control and subject to its continued approval.
Student government is patterned on the state and national form of government,
but, of course, modified and adapted to meet the local needs of the Student Body.
Powers are distributed into the three branches: (1) legislative, which is embodied
in the Executive Council; (2) judicial, which is embodied in the Honor Court with
penal and civil jurisdiction of all judicial matters; (3) Executive, embodied in the
President and shared with the Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer of the Stu-
dent Body. Members of all three branches are elected directly by the Student Body
once a year.
Student government, in order to carry out those purposes for which it stands,
enacts and enforces suitable and just laws, promotes athletics, debating, publications
of the Student Body, entertainments of a general educational value, and such other
activities as the Student Body may from time to time adopt. The officers of the
Student Body are the President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer, members of the
Honor Court, Athletic Council, Executive Council, Lyceum Council, editors and
business managers of student publications, and student members of the Board of
Student Publications.
Debating.-Practice in debating is open to all students through the programs of
the varsity and freshman debate squads. This work, which is sponsored L y the
Debate Club, is under the direction of the Department of Speech, and culminates in
an extensive schedule of intercollegiate debates.
Dramatics.-Any interested student has an opportunity to participate in the
several plays which are presented each year by the Florida Players, a dramatic
group which is under the direction of the Department of Speech.
Executive Council.-The Executive Council is composed of representatives elected
from the colleges on the campus and in general acts as administrator of Student
Body affairs. The other councils, Athletic, and Lyceum, have jurisdiction over
their respective fields.
Publications.-The Student Body publishes The Seminole, the year 1'ook; The
Florida Alligator, a weekly newspaper; and The "F" Book, the student's guide. The
Florida Review is published by its staff without student funds, (the campus literary
Y. IM. C. A.-The purpose of the Young Men's Christian Association is to provide
a medium through which the highest ideals of education and religion may be
expressed in terms of service. The program of the Association is planned to meet
definite needs as they become apparent. There is no membership fee. Any student
may become a member by subscribing to its purpose and contributing to its support.
A secretary having extensive experience with the problems of students is available
for counsel and help.
Social Fraternitics.-Twenty-four national social fraternities have established
chapters at the University; most of them have already built chapter houses for


their members, and the others have leased homes. There are also several local
fraternities. The general work of the fraternities is controlled by the Inter-
fraternity Conference, composed of two delegates from each of the national fra-
ternities. The national fraternities at Florida are Alpha Gamma Rho, Alpha Tau
Omega, Beta Kappa, Beta Theta Pi. Delta Chi. Delta Tau Delta, Delta Sigma Phi,
Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Beta Delta, Phi Delta Theta.
