Those who, for financial or other reasons, wish to remain at home. 5. Those who can not expect to profit from the variety of specialized courses offered in the usual college program. It is a well known fact that in some colleges more than one-half of the students fail because they cannot master the technicalities of these highly specialized courses. PLAN OK THE COLLEGE Each student will have the opportunity of three periods per week of class work in each of the four major fields. For intensive study, research, and individual instruction and guidance, in addition to these class periods, each student will be assigned to a small laboratory group in each major field, a group consisting of about ten students. Instructors will work with each of these small groups, joining in the discussions, giving individual attention and suggestions, outlining the work, and evaluating the results. In addition, the elective subject will require the usual three hours in recitation. Such guided study and individual aid allows ample time for physical recreation activities, such as swimming, tennis, golf, etc.
