Report of the
LADIES' BOARDING HALL.
Until the old University building can be thoroughly refitted and devoted to the use of lady students, and to the School of Domestic Science and Art, and other schools for women, young ladies may find suitable accommodations and care at the Hall, which has been opened near the University. This affords good rooms for about forty students, with parlor, dining room, kitchen, laundry and music room. The whole is under the charge of a competent steward and experienced matron. As the number who can be accommodated is limited, all who desire rooms should apply early to the steward, Eev. A. N. P a g e ; no room will be reserved after the opening of the term. The private rooms, for two students each, are furnished with bedsteads, wardrobe, wash-stand, two chairs, table and stove. Those desiring it may have rooms fully furnished. The charges for room and board for the coming year will be as follows: Board, with unfurnished room, $3 a week; board, with rooms furnished as above, $3.50; board, with rooms fully furnished, $4. Payment must be made monthly in advance.
Labor is not compulsory, but is furnished as far as possible to all who desire it. It is classified into Educational and Remunerative labor. Educational Labor is designed as practical instruction, and constitutes a part of the course in several schools, and students are credited with their proficiency in it as in other studies. Nothing is paid for it. Remunerative Labor is prosecuted for its products, and students are paid what their work is worth. Those desiring enployment must join the Labor Classes, which go out four hours each alternate day. The maximum rate paid for farm, garden and shop labor is ten cents, and for that about the buildings and ornamental grounds, eight cents per hour. Efficient students, who desire to earn more money, can often obtain work for extra hours ; or they may be allowed to work by the piece or job, and thus, by diligence or hkill, secure more. Some students, who have the requisite skill, industry and economy, pay their entire expenses by their labor; but, in general, young men cannot count upon doing this at first, without a capital to begin with, either of skill, or of money to serve them till a degree of skill is acquired. With this, however, and with a judicious use of time during vacations, many students have been able to meet their entire expenses.
