The College is situated on a beautiful eminence four miles from Boston, combining the advantages of country and city. It offers to the student in all its departments the best methods of instruction and the various facilities requisite for a thorough education, at a very moderate cost.

It was the first New England college to accept advanced French or German as equivalent for Greek in a course leading to the degree of A.B., and to offer the student so entering a full course in the Greek language.

A new departure is the award of the bachelor's degree on the basis of attainment instead of the number of years spent in college. Great freedom of election is permitted in the new courses, which provide both for general culture and for specialization in a chosen subject and its related studies.


COURSES IN LIBERAL ARTS. Two groups of requirements admit to the course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. The first includes Latin Grammar, four books of Cæsar, seven orations of Cicero, six books of Virgil, 2500 lines of the Metamorphoses of Ovid, and Latin Composition ; Greek Grammar, four books of Xenophon's Anabasis, three books of Homer's Iliad, and Greek Composition ; elementary German or French ; Arithmetic, Algebra, and Plane Geometry ; History, Ancient, with Mediæval and Modern, or that of England and the United States ; English Grammar and Composition.

Candidates entering under the second group of requirements substitute advanced German or advanced French for the Greek requirements, and must offer an elementary preparation, in French, if advanced German is offered, in German, if advanced French.

Two groups of requirements admit to the course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy. The first of these includes Latin, Mathematics, History, and English, as above ; with intermediate German and elementary French, or intermediate French and elementary German.

The second group is made up of Mathematics, History, and English, as in the first, with advanced German and elementary French, or advanced French and elementary German, or intermediate French and intermediate German ; Physics, Chemistry, and Natural History. This group is intended to meet the preparation of graduates of the best English high schools, who desire to take a college course.

Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy may obtain the degree of Bachelor of Arts by doing twenty-four term hours of additional work and complying with the other conditions pertaining to that degree.

ENGINEERING COURSES. These courses lead to the degree of Bachelor of Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Electrical Engineering, or Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering. The requirements for admission are Arithmetic, Algebra, Plane and Solid Geometry, English, and elementary German or French.

Full particulars in regard to the requirements for admission will be found in the Annual Catalogue for the current year, and in the Annual Announcement of the College of Letters.

The TUFTONIAN takes this occasion to extend the hand of welcome to

those who have decided to spend a most important period of life in the enjoy-
ment of the facilities which are offered by Tufts College. Our institution is yet young in
years — she points to no line of graduates who long ago served with distinction the church and the

Her children are comparatively few in numbers. But, after all, born of this century,
she has picked up the thread where others have dropped it, and has thus entered into the rich
inheritance of the ages. The present and future are her field of action. Her sons are to-day com-
ing to the forefront in every line of activity, and proving the worth of the training their Alma
Mater has so generously given them. The value of her infuence upon those who come this year
to place themselves under her guiding hand can best be told when, in after time, her sons of these
days shall try their valor in the stern battle of life. The future cannot be prophesied, but, if we
are to judge of what will be by what is, we can only predict that the sons and daughters of Tufts
in these latter years of a progressive century who taste of her river of knowledge to its depths
will prove to the world the wisdom of her maternal policy, the beneficence of her friendly guid-
ance. In her behalf, the TUFTONIAN bids welcome to a place in the under-graduate life of the
college, and Godspeed on the path toward knowledge and attainment, the class of NINETY-EIGHT.

The opening of the college year finds Tufts steadily advancing on the progressive road.
New buildings and equipments, new methods, and above all a large entering class are unmistak-
able evidences of the spirit that characterizes the efforts of those who direct the policy of the
college — a policy the key-note of which is judicious progress. Now it would indeed be an
