Summer Session, 1939
The University through the summer session seeks to provide opportunities for
a wise use of the vacation months.
It opens the way for students of the regular session to complete the requirements
for graduation in less than four calendar years.
It enables students who have failed in some part of their work to make up
deficiencies and thus graduate with their classes.
The Summer session is of special importance to teachers in service, for it
enables them to pursue their studies toward graduation, broaden their scholarship,
and incidentally raise the grade of their certificates. All of the courses offered
count toward the college or university degrees-B. A., B. S., B. Mus., and M. A.
Hardin-Simmons University is situated in Abilene, Texas, a city of thirtyfive
thousand home-loving westerners, which has an altitude of 1,750 feet, and
an average maximum temperature for June, July and August of 81 degrees. It
has well been described as the "Capital" of West Texas.
The physical plant consists of twelve modern and modernly equipped buildings,
including two well equipped gymnasiums with a swimming pool. The library
building is supplied with some twenty-five thousand volumes. The Science hall
is modern in every respect, and together with its scientific apparatus, is reported
to be one of the very best in the entire South. Three large modern dormitories
offer special accomodations to both men and women for the summer session.
A spacious chapel building offers splendid opportunity not only for devotional
services but also for University entertainment.
The administration is happy to announce that a majority of the heads of
departments will be in residence for the summer session of 1939.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
Admission to the University is on the basis of fifteen approved units, which
must include three in English, one in alebra, one in plane geometry, two in history
(preferably ancient and medieval and modern), and one in science.
New students from affiliated high schools should send transcripts of high
school credits before the opening so that there may be no delay in registration.
By so doing, they can be advised before arrival of the necessary examinations to
be taken for entrance.
