GENEIL\L STATEMENT

Columbia University was founded in 1754 as Kings College by royal grant of
George II, King of England, "for the Instruction of 3'outh in the Learned Lan-
guages, and the Liberal Arts and Sciences." The Revolutionary War interrupted
its active work; but in 1784 it was reopened as Columbia College. In 191 2,
the title was changed to Columbia University in the City of New York.

The University at the present time consists of Columbia College, the under-
graduate college of liberal arts, which offers a program of studies leading to the
degree of Bachelor of Arts; the School of Law, with courses leading to the de-
grees of Bachelor and Master of Laws and Doctor of Law (Doctor Juris) ; the
School of Medicine with courses leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine;
the Schools of Mines, Engineering, and Chemistry, with courses leading to the
Bachelor of Science degree, the several engineering degrees and the degree of
Master of Science; the School of Architecture, with courses leading to the degree
of Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Science; the School of Journalism, with
courses leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Literature and IMaster of Science;
the School of Business, with courses leading to the degrees of Bachelor and blaster
of Science; the School of Dental and Oral Surgery, with courses leading to the
degrees of Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery; the non-professional
graduate Faculties of Political Science, Philosophy and Pure Science, with courses
leading to the degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy. In addition
to these Schools and Faculties, the University includes the independent corpora-
tions of Barnard College, the undergraduate college for women, with courses lead-
ing to the degree of Bachelor of Arts; Teachers College, including the Faculties
of Education and Practical i\rts, with courses leadmg to the degrees of Bachelor
of Science, Master of Arts and Master of Science; and the College of Pharmacy of
the City of New York, vath courses leading to the degrees of Pharmaceutical
Chemist, Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Pharmacy.

The University maintains three Sessions during the year: The Winter Session,
beginning the last Wednesday of September and ending the first Tuesday of
February; the Spring Session, beginning the first Wednesday of February and
ending the second Wednesday of June; and the Summer Session of six weeks'
duration, beginning immediately after July 4. Through its system of University
Extension the opportunity is offered to men and women to pursue subjects in-
cluded in a liberal education' and to take courses toward a diploma or an academic
degree; Hom.e Study courses are also offered to persons who are unable to take
work in residence.

ADMISSION

A student accepted and registered by the proper authorities as having fulfilled
the preliminary qualifications for candidacy for a degree, certificate of pro-
ficiency, or diploma is enrolled as a matriculated student of the University. A
period of regular attendance upon all stated academic exercises amounting to
at least one academic year must be completed by every candidate for a degree.



lo COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

A student not enrolled as a matriculated student may enter the University
as a non-matriculated student, and be permitted to attend such courses of in-
struction as he is qualified to take, but not as a candidate for a degree, certificate
of proficiency, or diploma. Such students are expected to conform to the same
standard of attendance and scholarship as are required of matriculated students.
Non-matriculated students may receive a formal statement of the satisfactory
completion of any course.

In the Announcement of each School will be found the specific conditions govern-
ing admission to courses of instruction and to candidacy for a degree.

The admission, continuance upon the rolls, and graduation of any student,
is subject to the full disciplinary power of the University authorities, as pre-
scribed by the Statutes of the University.

REGISTRATION

Before attending any University exercises each student shall present himself
at the office of the Registrar and shall there file a registration blank giving such
information as may be required for the University records together with a state-
ment of the courses he is authorized to pursue. The places of registration are
the general office of the Registrar of the University in University Hall; the Col-
lege of Physicians and Surgeons, 437 West Fifty-ninth Street; the School of Dental
and Oral Surgery, 302 East Thirty-fifth Street; the College of Pharmacy, 113-119
West Sixty-eighth Street; Barnard College; and Teachers College. To com-
plete his registration the student shall pay the required fees.

Each person whose registration has been completed will be considered a stu-
dent of the University during the period for which such registration is held valid.
No student registered in any school or college of the University shall at the same
time be registered in any other school or college, either of Columbia University
or of any other institution, without the consent of the appropriate Dean or
Director.

WITHDRAWAL

An honorable discharge will always be granted to any student in good academic
standing, and not subject to discipline, who may desire to withdraw from the
University; but no student under the age of twenty-one years shall be entitled
to a discharge without the assent of his parent or guardian furnished in writing
to the proper Dean or Director. Students withdrawing are required to notify
the Registrar. Applications for the return of fees must be made in writing at
the time of withdrawal.

The Dean or Director of the school or faculty concerned may, for reasons of
weight, grant a leave of absence to a student in good standing.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Announcements of each College or School, of the Summer Session, of Uni-
versity Extension, and of the several divisions under which the departments of
instruction are grouped, may be obtained without charge from the Secretary of
the University,

The Announcement of each School contains a schedule of fees and expenses
for the courses in that School.



COLLEGE OF PHARMACY n

LIBKARY

The General Library of the University contains about 895,000 volumes, ex-
clusive of unbound pamphlets and doctoral dissertations. The various depart-
ments of instruction have also special libraries in connection with their lecture-
rooms and laboratories. The Avery Architectural Library, the Law Library,
the Ella Weed Library of Barnard College, the Br^-son Library of Teachers
College, and the libraries of the College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Col-
lege of Pharmacy, are all available to students of the University.



RESIDENCE HALLS

There are three residence halls on South Field: Hartley and Livingston with
300 rooms each, and Furnald, with 282 rooms. Johnson Hall, on East Field
for women students in the graduate and professional schools, Whittier, Bancroft
and Seth Low Halls, maintained by Teachers College, and Brooks and John Jay
Halls, maintained by Barnard College, are dormitories for women. Tompkins
Hall, located at 21 Claremont Avenue, is designed especially for women students
in the professional schools and those in University Extension. The University
Commons, in University Hall, provides board at reasonable rates.



RELIGIOUS INTERESTS

Service, at which attendance is voluntary, is held in St. Paul's Chapel at noon
every week-day during the academic year, except on Saturdays. The Sunday
service is held at four o'clock. Earl Hall, the home of the religious, philanthropic,
and social organizations and interests of the L^niversitj', is open daily to all
students.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY

The hour between 1:10 and 2 o'clock on Tuesdays is reserved each week
throughout the year as a General Assembly hour, and no courses are held at
this time in any school of the University, with the exception of the School of
Dentistry, the College of Pharmacy and the Summer Session.



MEDICAL SERVICE

The University Medical Officer, Dr. McCastline, has direct supervision of all
matters affecting the health of the student body. All cases of illness, especially
communicable diseases, m.ust be promptly reported to him. Absence from classes
due to illness must also be reported to his office. Dr. McCastline, as University
Physician, and the members of his staff hold office hours daily in Earl Hall for
consultation with students.

Members of the University who need medical attention at home, and who
desire to be advised concerning private physicans, specialists and nursing care,
will receive such information upon applying at the office of the University Phy-
sician.



12 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

GYMNASIUM

The Gymnasium is completely fitted with gymnastic apparatus and contains a
swimming pool, baths, rooms for rowing, fencing, boxing and wrestling, and hand-
ball courts. It is open daily to male students of the University during the aca-
demic year, except on Sundays and legal holidays. Every student is entitled to a
physical examination by the Medical Director. On the basis of this examination,
advice is given as to the kind and amount of exercise best adapted to his needs.
Students Hall, of Barnard College, and the Thompson Memorial Building, of
Teachers College, are thoroughly equipped with physical training facilities for
women students.



THE COLLEGE OF PHARMACY

The ninety-sixth annual session of the College of Pharmacy, open to both men
and women, will begin on Monday, September 14, 1925.

Prospective students should carefully note Rule No. 16 of the Pharmacy Laws
of the State of New York, part of which is as follows:

"c Matriculation. A matriculant of any registered school of pharmacy in
New York State must possess the 'Registered Apprentice Certificate' before
matriculation is completed. Any student who has not had practical experience
prior to entering the school or who has had experience in another State than
New York, shall be registered as an apprentice by the executive officer of such
school."

An amendment to the pharmacy statute, which becomes Chapter 338 of the
Laws of 1924, provides that a graduate of a registered school of pharmacy who
is not 21 years of age and who has not had the required practical experience in a
registered pharmacy, may be admitted to the examination in theoretical subjects
only and on passing the same may thereafter be required to take only the practical
examination when he has met the statutory requirements of the law. Such appli-
cant does not receive any certificate upon passing the examination and is not
granted any right or privilege because he passes the theoretical examination. A
second fee of $10.00 must be paid when taking the practical examination. The
amendment becomes operative after January ist, 1926. Through September
1925, examinations will be given for licenses as Junior Pharmacists.

Students who have served in either the Medical Department of the U, S.
Army or the Hospital Corps of the U. S. Navy, and whose discharge papers
note such service, may receive credit therefor toward meeting the experience
requirement of the State Board of Pharmacy.

The demand for graduates of this College to fill responsible positions as clerks
and managers of pharmacies is steadily increasing, and more rapidly than our
ability to supply graduates, in spite of the present very large attendance. Coin-
cident with this increasing demand, there has been a steady rise in the rates of
compensation.

Still more noteworthy, is the increasing call for graduates of advanced courses,
to fill other professional positions.

The general application of federal, state and municipal food and drug laws is
creating a demand for thoroughly trained pharmaceutical inspectors and analysts.
The obligations thus imposed upon manufacturers and merchants must result,
and are doing so, in compelling them to employ scientifically trained assistants
for responsible services which have heretofore, in ver>' many cases, been left to
incompetent and irresponsible employees. For this field of service the ordinary
graduate in pharmacy is wholly unqualified.

Another class of demands that are frequently encountered is for instructors,
professors and heads of departments in pharmacy schools. The teaching staffs
in the schools of pharmacy of the United States now include nearly one thousand
mem.bers. However well qualified these instructors may be as to knowledge of
the subjects that they are engaged in teaching, few of them have received the
special training in the theory and art of teaching which is considered essential
for teachers in other schools. Special provision for this work, as an elective, is
called for in the complete pharmaceutical curriculum.



14 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

To meet these higher requirements, three and four year courses of study, leading
respectively to the degrees of Pharmaceutical Chemist (Ph.Ch.) and Bachelor of
Science in Pharmacy (B.S. in Phar.), have been established.

It is particularly worthy of note that the Education Department of the State
of New York has adopted these conditions as a State requirement.

THE COLLEGE BUILDING

The location of the College is at one of the most readily accessible points in
the City. Within two blocks are stations of the elevated and underground rail-
roads, and the Broadway, Columbus and Amsterdam Avenue lines connect with
nearly all surface lines in the City. The completion of the various tunnels under
the Hudson, East and Harlem rivers has greatly facilitated and expedited subur-
ban transportation. Central Park is within two blocks of the College, and the
American Museum of Natural History and the Medical Department of the Uni-
versity are each about a half-mile away. The central buildings of the University
are reached within fifteen minutes from the door of the College.

The College Building was erected after a study of the principal buildings of
the kind in this country and abroad. Experience has failed to show any material
feature in which it could have been better adapted to the purpose of pharmaceu-
tical instruction, either theoretical or practical, but so great has been the increase
in the applications for admission that it has been found necessary to provide
greater accommodations in the form of an additional connecting building.

In its planning, two principal objects have been kept in view; first, provision
for a fifty per cent increase in the membership of the first and second-year classes;
second, greatly increased and improved facilities for the work of the higher classes.
In connection with the latter, extensive provision has been made for research
work, by both faculty and special students. Our Library has also been greatly
improved, the entire lower floor of the new building having been reserved for
its accommodation.

THE LIBRARY

The Library is in charge, during College hours, of a trained librarian, who is
