COURSES OF STUDY RECOMMENDED BY THE FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY.
The following are the Courses arranged for the schools of the University, as stated upon page 20. Students who are to graduate in a school must follow closely, and in the proper order, the studies assigned to them. Those studies of a course which are collateral are separated from each other by semicolons5 which are reserved for that purpose. Where two or more studies are taken up consecutively, the time devoted to each is indicated by the proper number, followed by w. for weeks. For each study not otherwise marked, the student is expected to be in prompt and regular attendance in the proper University Class Room, during one assigned hour each school day. Variations from this are indicated by placing after the study simply a numeral stating the number of hours per week required. For "Special Exercises" the time cannot be given.
