CHIMISTRY.

     A course of Lectures on Chimistry is given annually to the Junior and Senior classes, by the Professor of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy.

ORGANIZATION.

     The several officers are charged with the entire course of instruction in their respective departments, and together constitute the Faculty of the Institution.  This arrangement, while it gives efficiency to the several departments, brings them all under the same supervision, and secures a uniform course of discipline and instruction.  In order that its advantages may be fully enjoyed, it is desired that all who expect to enter this Institution, should apply for admission as soon as they are prepared for the Academic course.

ADMISSION.

     The Institution is open to young men who have the ministry in view, from every denomination of evangelical Christians.  Candidates for admission are examined in relation to their Christian experience, call to the ministry, and previous studies.  Every one is required to present testimonials from the church to which he belongs, certifying that he has the approbation of the church in entering upon a course of preparation for the gospel ministry.  The Faculty would urge upon the churches the utmost caution, in recommending young men as proper candidates for the ministry: a full license, however, is required of none previous to their commencing the study of Theology.  Graduates of colleges wishing to enter the Theological Department, are required, previous to admission, to read those portions of the Hebrew Bible, which are studied in the Collegiate Department of this Institution.  Such persons are permitted to pursue the study of Hebrew in connection with any class which they are prepared to enter, without charge for tuition.

     The Collegiate Department is open, under certain restrictions, to young men who have not the ministry in view.  Candidates of this class are required to furnish evidence of good moral character, and if from another Institution, of their having been regularly dismissed.  No such young man will be received as a member of the Freshman class, who is not fourteen years old; or to an advanced standing, without a corresponding increase or age.

BENEFICIARIES.

     The Executive Committee of the Education Society will receive applications from those who wish to enjoy its patronage.  It is the practice of the Society to furnish aid to no young man, until he has been in the Institution one term, or at least a sufficient period to afford an opportunity to judge of his character and talents.  The amount furnished to beneficiaries is sufficient to defray the expense of board and tuition, for the refunding of which, at some future period, a written pledge is taken by the Society.  No beneficiaries are received from the Academic Department.

EXAMINATIONS AND ANNIVERSARY.

     All the classes are examined, at the close of the winter session, on the studies of the two preceding terms, and at the close of the summer term, on all the studies of the year.
