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. The liberality of the Commonwealth, in sup- Q plementing the inadequate annual income arising from the pro- }j _ [ j ° ceeds of the land-scrip invested in State bonds, has enabled the _ ' Trustees to begin and carry on, upon a scale commensurate with - tr",} the wants of our people, the operations of the institution whose libc; . management and oversight have been committed to them by the ‘ i , . ` W t- General Assembly of Kentucky. E ~,. g . 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 - .. . _ . ` . .· ··~· ·“*“ "'
