V ' A { V > t tf T T { A _ A 2 THE STATE Umvrnsiry - L/ 1.; ufl t ` Lexington and the county of Fayette were accepted by the General _; ., ` Assembly. By the act of incorporation and the amendments thereto, con- stituting the charter ofthe Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky, liberal provision is made for educating, free of A tuition, the energetic young men and women of the Common- V wealth whose means are limited. An act of the General Assembly - of the Commonwealth of Kentucky approved March` 16th., 1908, changed the style and title of the institution from Agricultural . and Mechanical College to that of State University, Lexington, v_ ;*. 2 Kentucky. The University, with the additional departments which T ' A shall, from time to time, be opened as the means placed at, the A ti disposal of the Trustees allow, will, it is hoped, in the not distant { _, gi, future do a great work in advancing the educational interests of Y Kentucky. Being entirely undenominational in its character, it {ff appeals with confidence to the people of all creeds and of no ~ _;= creed, and will endeavor, in strict conformity with the requirements t , of its organic law, to afford equal advantages to all, exclusive ` privileges to none.

SCOPE OF STUDIES. ; ln the act of Congress making provision for the class of insti , _` tutions to which The State University belongs, it is declared "that p Q their leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific =` ,, ` and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the lf,) , mechanic arts, in order to promote the liberal and practical educa- { tion of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes- I. sions of life." To the three departments of agriculture, the me- c chanic arts, and military science, contemplated in the act as indis-` _;, ` pensable, an Experiment Station has been added by the United i . I States, and liberal provision has been made for instruction in all { I;i" ` ` branches of science and in the classics, so that this institution is l *,.l= "M - .. . _ . ` . . ~ * "'
