ALMA MATER

Dear Alma Mater, smile upon thy children!
Gladly we greet thee, altogether lovely;
Peace be within thy classic halls and temples,
Hail, Alma Mater dear!

Hail to the heroes who have gone before us,
Young men and maidens, filled with true devotion!
Bright is their glory, fadeless and undying,
Hail to our heroes gone!

Hail to our classmates, bound by ties ne'er broken;
Here once again we pledge our vows of friendship;
Brave hearts and true hearts sound aloud and chorus,
Long live our comrades dear!

Dear Alma Mater, tenderly thy children
Gather, and bring to thee gracious salutations;
Comrades, your voices lift once again in chorus;
Hail, Alma Mater dear!



THE STETSON COMMUNITY



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Stetson University aspires to be a comprehensive private university made
up of individually strong undergraduate academic programs in various col-
leges and schools, each of which is recognized by its peers for intellectually
exciting programs, effective teaching, and a selected group of academically
distinctive graduate and continuing education programs. The University pro-
motes and supports scholarly and creative activity among students and faculty
as a means to enhance teaching, learning and professional development and
as a contribution to the broader base of knowledge.

Stetson University provides distinctive programs which include a com-
prehensive university curriculum that is united by a commitment to Chris-
tian values and the liberal arts and a learning environment which affords
special leadership skills, and the interaction of students, faculty, and staff.
The University also shares a commitment to social responsibility and pro-
vides services on a selective basis to its wider community through such avenues
as continuing education, public service programs, and the volunteer work
of individual faculty, students and administrators.

Stetson seeks students whose basic objective is a well-rounded intellec-
tual and aesthetic self-development program. Many will be pre-professional
and career oriented students who desire a broadly based learning experience.
Stetson attempts to admit students who have demonstrated high academic
and leadership potential as well as a sense of personal and community
responsibility.

Through a high level of faculty, staff, and alumni involvement, and a
demanding but caring environment, Stetson prepares students to pursue
careers, enter highly selective graduate programs, pursue lifelong learning,
and lead meaningful lives of service in their communities.

A BRIEF HISTORY

The city of DeLand and Stetson University have literally grown up
together. DeLand was a small village when Mr. Henry DeLand, the prin-
cipal citizen of the town, conceived the idea of founding a school. The first
classes of "DeLand Academy" were held in the First Baptist Church of DeLand
in 1883. The Academy became a college in 1885. In 1889 the name was
changed to Stetson University in honor of the famous hat manufacturer, John
B. Stetson, who made generous contributions to the University both in time
and money.

DeLand Hall, one of the best-loved buildings on campus, is a reminder
of the vision and dream which Mr. DeLand had when the University was
founded. This small building in the center of the campus was the first building
to be erected in the State of Florida for the teaching of higher education.
It has been preserved in its original construction and has recently been
renovated to house various administrative offices.



The University was a College of Liberal Arts until the founding of the
College of Law in 1900, the first law school in Florida. The College of Law
was moved to St. Petersburg in 1954, where larger courts and other advan-
tages were available in that metropolitan area. Stetson also pioneered in
Florida the teaching of music and business administration and in offering
graduate work leading to the MA degree.

ACADEMIC POLICIES

The Stetson University Bulletin is the official University publication which
contains information regarding degree requirements, grades, class attendance,
academic probation, etc.

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

A detailed listing of all academic requirements, including those for a
specific degree and major, may be found in the University Bulletin. It is the
student's responsibility to insure that all requirements for graduation
have been met.

To assist the student in this effort, the Office of the Registrar maintains
an up-to-date "check sheet" for each student. This outlines the requirements
of the student's major and records his/her point average progress toward the
degree. The student is sent a copy of the check sheet each semester prior
to academic advising and registration. Additional copies are 50 cents each.

The following is a summary of some academic policies and procedures about
which students frequently ask.

CHANGE OF MAJOR

A student who wishes to change a major should first consult with his/her
academic advisor. The change may then be made in the office of the ap-
propriate academic Dean.

ACADEMIC LOAD

A student must average 14-16 hours per semester and three hours each
Winter Term in order to graduate in four years. A student who carries fewer
than 12 hours is a part-time student. A part-time student does not qualify
for the Honor Roll or Dean's List and may not qualify for certain kinds of
financial aid or for other benefits which require certification of full-time status.
For the Winter Term, fewer than three hours is considered part-time; fewer
than six hours is considered part-time for summer school. Students who take
eight hours or more pay full tuition.

ATTENDANCE

Independent study is encouraged at the University, but regular atten-
dance is required in most classes. Stetson prescribes no general attendance
rule; the individual colleges and schools may establish attendance regulations,
but usually attendance requirements are established by individual professors
for their own classes.

ACADEMIC RECORDS

Academic records (transcripts) are maintained in the Registrar's Office.
Students may examine their personal records upon request. The record is
not released without the student's written permission. Exceptions to this policy
are administrative and faculty personnel within the University who have a
need to know. A charge is assessed for each copy requested. Transcripts are
withheld if the student is not in good financial standing with the University.

INTERPRETATION OF GRADES AND QUALITY POINTS

Grades and quality points represent the instructor's final estimate of the
student's performance in a course. The grade of A (+ or -) may be inter-
preted to mean that the instructor recognizes exceptional capacity and ex-
ceptional performance. The grade of B ( + or -) signifies that the student has,
for any combination of reasons, gained a significantly more effective com-
mand of material than is generally expected in the course. The grade of C +
or C is the instructor's certification that the student has demonstrated the
required mastery of the material. A student is graded C- or D (+ or -) when
his/her grasp of the course essentials is minimal. The F grade indicates failure
to master the essentials and the necessity for repeating the course before credit
may be earned.

Quality points are values assigned to letter grades. Students' cumulative
grade-point averages are based on a four-point scale. Letter grades are assigned
the following numerical equivalents per semester hour:
A+ = 4.00 C = 2.00

A = 4.00 C- = 1.67

A- = 3.67 D+ = 1.33

B+ = 3.33 D = 1.00

B = 3.00 D- = 0.67

B- = 2.67 F = 0.00

C+ = 2.33

I = Incomplete. This is the grade given when, because of illness or other
extenuating conditions, the instructor's academic Dean has approved an ex-
tension of time for the completion of a course. The work of the course must
be completed two weeks prior to the last day of classes in the next academic
semester or enrollment (excluding winter and summer terms); but in all cases,
except graduate thesis courses, it must be removed within 24 months from
the date issued regardless of enrollment status; otherwise the I becomes an
F. If a grade of I has been assigned, in no case may the course be repeated
to improve grade standing.

NC = No credit, no quality points earned, does not affect grade-point
average.

P = credit, no quality points earned, does not affect grade-point average.

W = an approved withdrawal from the University before the mid-term
grade inventory. No credit or quality points are earned and the grade-point
average is not affected.

WP = an approved withdrawal from the University after the mid-term
grade inventory. The grade is given according to the instructor's evaluation.
No credit or quality points are earned and the grade-point average is not
