Beloit College - (Continued.)
The faculty now numbers, including Professors, lecturers, instruc-
tors and assistauts thirty-three. The oldest member of the faculty Pro-
fessor Porter, has been in continuous service since 1852. The College
has enrolled more than 4000 students about 700 of whom are on the
Alumni lists as full graduates. There are at present three parallel cour-
ses of study in the college,- the Classical, Philosophical, and Scientific.
each course having about an equal number of students. Graduates from
the first two courses receive the degree of Bachelor of Arts, from the
Science Course the degree of Bachelor of Science. While believing that
a rounded education should combine a knowledge covering a wide range
of study considerable opportunity is given for selection along particular
lines of work. The courses in language are long and the College has
enjoyed from the first a reputation for the thoroughness and excellence
of the work in the ancient and modern classics. Since the completion
of the Pearsons Science hall the courses in science have been developed
until the Science Course is now fully on a plane with the classical course.
The best test of the work of the College lies in the record of its
alumni. By far the great majority of those who have graduated from
the college have been successful in their several occupations in life;
many having achieved unusual success. The College has sought from
the first to give the graduates an equipment for the life work; it has
considered information secondary to the development in the student of
positive thought-power. With this end in view there has always been
a balance established between the studies which gave a knowledge of
the thought and purpose of men. It has endeavored to make scholars of
men, but at the same time something more than scholars; it has sought
to make them citizens.
