if E 4 ANNUAL CATALOGUE. I V There are some features in the plan of Kentucky University is which are peculiar. The general superintendence of the whole Institution by the Regent, who is not connected with any Faculty, but who is the representative of the Curators and ‘ I a' Donors, gives unity to the whole plan; while the distribution of the executive labor and responsibility among the Presiding E i Ofiicers of the several Colleges secures efficiency in every de- partment. The several colleges thus associated furnish the most liberal provisions for education, whether collegiate or professional, general or special; and that, too, without the ex- pense and embarrassments that would result from a duplication of professorships. Ifa young man desires to pursue a Classical i course exclusively, he can do so, and receive a certificate of G graduation for the same. If he desires to devote himself to Science or Arts, to receive a good Commercial and Business ,. A education, to graduate as a Civil Engineer, or to study Mining or any other specialty, he will enjoy the like facilities without ` additional expense. Should a student desire to reduce the ordinary expenses of board and tuition,the Agricultural College presents to him the opportunity for laboring, at a reasonable compensation, on the College Farm, or in the Mechanical Shops, while he is receiving thorough instruction in Science A and Literature. This union of study and labor is thus not only economical, but also conservative of health and good morals. The Agricultural and Mechanical College also embraces a thorough course of instruction in Military Tactics, which is I ; , made valuable as a means of physical development as well as of collegiate discipline. This general plan of the University, with its peculiar features of government and discipline, with its Associated Colleges _ and their separate Schools, and with its various Elective , Courses of Study, including Industrial Education, with all its economic arrangements, makes it emphatically an Institution for thc Pwjy/0. i
