which were discussed by its presi

like any other college, but the last
four years at college have
class work under an elective
system in that there are no lectures;
no regular class meetings and the
student sees his teacher only once
a week, when he reports on what he
has done and asks advice if he wants
it. In some classes the student receives a syllabus and is left to follow it without help; in others he prepares his own syllabus. All that is
necessary is that at the end of the
period ho pass an examination.
Although the system was introduced only last fall, President Morgan
said it had already proven a signal
success. A comparison of the Winter
'.emester of this year with other years
.howed no lowering in standards, and
both students and teachers have expressed themselves as highly satisfied with the new policy.
President Morgan also told of the
new science building given to the college by Charles F. Kettering, Vice
President of General Motors, who donated 300,000 for that purpose.
Seven years ago Antioch College
adopted a system under which students combine work with study for
six years, when they receive their
baccalaureate degrees. They work
