These must be schools of first-rate character, whose courses of instruction include all the studies required for admission to any of the colleges of the University. On application, a member of the Faculty is sent to examine the school making the application, as to its facilities for teaching, its course and methods of instruction, and the general proficiency shown. If the report is favorable, the name of the school is entered on the published list of High Schools, accredited by the University. The graduates of these schools are admitted to any of the colleges for which their studies may have prepared them. The appointment continues as long as the work of the school is found satisfactory. The Princeton High School has already been appointed, and several applications are now pending. N. B.—Schools desiring to be placed on either of these lists will be furnished, on application, with the circular of instructions.
DORMITORIES AND BOARD.
There are in the University buildings about one hundred private rooms, which are rented to the students who first apply. Each room is of ample size for two students, and is without furniture. There are many boarding houses near the University, where either table board, or board and rooms can be obtained, with the advantages of the family circle. Boarding clubs are also formed by the students, by which the cost of meals may be reduced to $2.25 per week. Many students prepare their own meals, and thus reduce expenses still farther.
