8 The "I" Book


From 1875 until 1927 this institution was or-
ganized as a State Normal School. In 1927 it
became the State Teachers College at Indiana.
Requirements for certification have gradually
been raised with the result that all curricula
are four years in length.

The college owns 34 acres of land, 23 of
which are in the original campus. In the cen-
ter of this campus is a historic oak grove about
which are grouped the main buildings.


Since its organization the school has gradu-
ated over eleven thousand students from its
various curricula. Approximately twenty-two
hundred degrees have been granted since In-
diana was made a college in 1927. The sup-
port of these alumni is an important factor in
the consistent growth of the College.

Alumni Associations are functioning in all
parts of the country and they are definitely
making valuable contributions to the college.

Through their efforts an organ will be in-

Regular attendance is essential for satisfac-
tory work. A student who is absent from
class must bring an excuse from the Dean of
Women, if a girl, or from the Dean of Men, if
a boy. An unexcused absence means a mark
of zero for the time missed.


The three days prior to the beginning ot
college classes is known as "Freshman Week."
During these days every new student has fre-
quent contacts with his faculty adviser who
assists him with his program, and advises him
in curricular, scholastic, extra curricular, and
other problems.

Students are expected to consult their ad-
visers regularly. Advisers will assist the stu-
dent in interpreting tests and other data and
guide him to specialists in the several fields.

Every upper class student has an adviser from
the field of his major interest who assists him
in programming and advises him in personal,
social, scholastic, and other matters.

operative attitude of a promising prospective

tendance a habit. While much outstanding

entertainment is provided in assembly, its.
primary purpose is to reflect classroom act-
ivity and to supplement the work done in class
by opportunities for developing sound ap-
preciation of art, music, dramatics, and a fun-
damental knowledge of all the approaches
to learning possessed by cultured people.
Student participation in assemblies is encour-
aged. Regular attendance at class and as-
sembly makes for scholarship and successful

Please Remember

(1) Students should not carry on communi-
cation nor use text books during assembly.

(2) The speaker shall always be given the
courteous attention of the student body during
