FOR 1972 - 1973

Dr. Martin Luther College believes that all education, if it is to be really beneficial to the individual, to the Church, and to the community, must make the human soul conscious of its sinful nature and inspire it with living faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior. Dr. Martin Luther College is persuaded that only such education enables man to face life's problems wisely and to appear before his God confidently and eagerly. Dr. Martin Luther College knows that the Holy Spirit alone can so educate and that He works only through the divine, verbally inspired Scriptures.

HISTORY Minnesota Synod

Although Dr. Martin Luther College is now owned and operated by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, the actual founder was the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Minnesota and other States. At its 1883 convention the Minnesota Synod resolved to establish an educational institution for the purpose of supplying ministers of the Gospel to its congregations and mission fields. Besides the ministerial course, other courses were to be included in the curriculum of the institution. Through the zeal of the Rev. C. J. Albrecht, the pastor of St. Paul's congregation in New Ulm and also the president of the synod, the new college was located in New Ulm and was ready for dedication and occupancy in the fall of 1884. Wisconsin Synod

The second phase of the school's history began eight years later. In 1892 the Minnesota Synod entered into a close federation with the like-minded Wisconsin and Michigan Synods for a more effective stewardship of resources. At that time Dr. Martin Luther College became the teacher training institution for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption to the present time. After the Nebraska District Synod had become the fourth member of the joint synod in 1904, the federation developed into an organic union by 1917. This union, then known as the EvangelicalLutheran Joint Synod of Wisconsin and other States, later, in 1959, assumed the name of The WisconsinEvangelical Lutheran Synod. At the time of the federated merger, a three-year preparatory curriculum was adopted together with a two-year college course, both of which were open to male students only. In 1896, however, the need for women teachers caused the school to become co-educational. In 1919 the preparatory department was expanded to a four-year high school while the two-year college curriculum was retained with the hope of expansion to a four-year college as soon as possible. The first of two steps in expansion became a reality with the graduation of the first three-year class, the class of 1931. The completion of the expansion was thwarted to such a degree by the effects of the great depression and by World War II that the addition of the fourth year was not accomplished until 1950, with the first four-year class graduating in 1954. As a result of a synodical resolution in 1962 the separation of the high school from the college, each under its own administration, was effected although both schools continue to use the same facilities as heretofore.


Dr. Martin Luther College is now a four-year teacher training college which grants the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education with transfer recognition by the University of Minnesota.


Dr. Martin Luther College, the four-year teacher-education institution of the WisconsinEvangelical Lutheran Synod, exists in fulfillment of pedagogicalprinciples based on the Word of God. These declare that education is inseparable from religion. They demonstrate that all knowledge in all areas of human thought and endeavor is worthy of inquiry when viewed in the light of human sin and divine grace. They assert that such evaluation of all things is granted alone through the God-revealed Wisdom of the Bible, the God-man Jesus Christ. They affirm that education, a basic function of the Christian home, is also a concern of the church, namely, to equip the entire person in mind, body, and spirit for time and for eternity. Purpose

Dr. Martin Luther College, in the eighty-nine years.of its existence has witnessed many changes in personnel, plant, and facilities. Yet amid the numerous changes one aspect has remained unchanged: the purpose for the college's existence. Its one function still is to serve the church, specifically the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. It does this by educating men and women exclusively for the teaching ministry in keeping with its expressed philosophy, principles, and purposes. Hence its students are specially prepared for the ministry of the Word in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Objectives 1. To inculate as a primary qualification a consecreted spirit of love to Christ and the fellowman which is gained alone through searching the Scriptures, the faithful record of God's will to save all men. 2. To develop an academic competence drawn from a learning experience sufficiently broad and deep for acquiring the attitudes and skills that will meet the high standards of Christian education and Christian responsibility to society, and including familiarity and facility with the teahniques and tools of teaching. 3. To instill a willingness to render assistance in the worship program of the congregation especially since our Lutheran heritage of music in the service of Christian faith emphasizes the need for developing an ability to play and to conduct appropriate church music.


Policies In carrying out these objectives, Dr. Martin Luther College seeks to provide a Christ-centered school atmosphere for spiritual growth. Every academic subject is taught from a background of conviction for Christian truth. The total school experience of the student is guided by the Word of God. Teaching competence is sought through a curriculum which undergirds the courses in professional methods, student teaching, and applied music with a strong program of study in literature, science, and the arts.

Indispensable to the entire teaching and learning experience at Dr. Martin Luther College is a thorough foundation in Holy Scripture, in history, and in the heritage of the man of God from whom Dr. Martin Luther College takes its name. All students are committed to intensive study of the Bible as the only source and norm of absolute truth. From the divine portrayal of sin and grace in Holy Scripture, from the record of God's continued manifestation of wisdom and love throughout history, and from the theological and liturgical treasures inherited from Martin Luther, students are led to the proper evaluation of human achievement and human failure by which their educational endeavors can contribute most to the glory of God and the welfare of the individual and the community, the Church and the world.


Consistent with its principles and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College endeavors to serve the educational needs of the constituency operating and maintaining it. To this end, its scholastic program, though unified in purpose, is fourfold in structure. Its regular sessions offer a four-year teacher education course enabling graduates, with full synodical certification, to teach in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. By means of annual summer sessions it affords opportunity to work toward gaining the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education as well as to continue studies after graduation. The synodical certification program offers those who have only the required academic background an opportunity to take the religion courses required for gainingthe status of a certified teacher in the Synod. The summer school curriculum is always arranged with this in mind. It is primarily in the interest of synodical certification that a fourth program, a correspondence study program, has been developed and is being expanded. Dr. Martin Luther College is likewise aware of the current trends in the field of elementary education and particularly of the increased emphasis in certain disciplines. These factors, together with the conviction that a curriculum per-


mitting concentration in certain areas is beneficial for graduates, have occasioned the recent revision of the curriculum. Other programs are also under study so that the college may continue to exercise the kind of educational leadership the Synod has every right to expect of it.

ORGANIZATION Administrative Organization Dr. Martin Luther College is owned, operated, and maintained by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. This church body has its headquarters at 3512 West North Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin53208. The administration of the college is vested in a board of control elected by the Synod in convention. This board consists of three pastors, two male teachers, and two laymen. Briefly stated, the Board of Control is responsible for the calling of faculty personnel; for decisions regardingmajor curriculum revisions;for property acquisitions, building construction, and major maintenance items; and for the establishment of general policies under which the college is to operate. The Board of Control discharges most of its functions in consultation with and through the president of the college who represents the faculty and is directly responsible to the Board and to the Synod. Divisional Organization Faculty The faculty is primarily concerned with the academic life of the institution and with such policies as are an integral part of campus life in keeping with the college's stated philosophy and principles. Normally the faculty discharges its responsibilitiesin these areas through regularly scheduled meetings. Academic Council The work of the various academic divisionswithin the college is co-ordinated through the Academic Council. It is composed of the division heads, the registrar, and the academic dean who is the chairman. This council is responsible to the faculty and its president. Committees Various functions of the faculty are carried on through committee assignments. The standing committees are: Academic Council - Vice President for Academic Affairs, chm.; T. Hartwig, J. Oldfield, E. Sievert, C. Trapp, M. Zahn, Registrar

Future Teachers



Dr; Martin Luther College has Transfer Recognition by the University of Minnesota. The University Senate in 1968 resolved to "grant Dr. Martin Luther College Transfer Recognition, i.e., provide for the transfer of satisfactorily completed credits, appropriate to the programs to which a student may be admitted." This resolution reaffirmed a status in effect since 1963. Dr. Martin Luther College is on the list of schools recognized by the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare. It is approved under 15

Public Law 550 (Korean Veterans) and under the Serviceman's Readjustment Act of 1944 as amended; it is also approved for nonimmigrant foreign students by the Immigration Service of the United States Department of Justice. The college is a member of the Association of Minnesota Colleges and

an associate member in the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.


New Ulm, an attractive and beautifully located city of over 13,000 inhabitants, is situated in the south central section of Minnesota, about one hundred miles southwest of Minneapolis-St.Paul. It is accessibleby two major highways, U.S. 14 and State 15, and by daily bus service with connections to all parts of the United States via Mankato. Commercialair travel is available from the International Terminal, Minneapolis-St.Paul, with connecting serviceby bus or charter plane directly to the airport from New Ulm. Campus

The fifty-acre campus with an unusual natural setting lies on a wooded range of hills overlooking the city. It is a veritable park, softening the austere lines generally associated with a complex of institutional buildings. Almost adjoining the campus itself are Hermann Park and expansive Flandrau State Park, which provides excellent facilities for campers. Buildings for Instruction aod Administration

The one building in which the college carried out its missipn in the first twenty-five years of its existence is now but one of a complex of buildings. Thirteen buildings at present stand on the campus; five of them were constructed since 1962. Academic Center

Erected in 1928 at a cost of $3~8,OOOand remodeled and enlarged in 1968 for twice that sum, the Academic Center is used for classroomsand assemblies. Its wellappointed auditorium accommodates nine hundred persons and provides a worshipful setting for the daily chapel services. In the spring of 1971 a Casavant Freres pipe organwith thirty -one stops, forty -two ranks, three manuals and pedal was installed. In the instructional areas there are classrooms, lecture rooms, a science suite, and an art unit.


Addition to Academic Center

Old Main

The first building on campus, Old Main, dedicated in 1884, now is the administration center of the campus. On the first floor are the offices of the president, vice president for academic affairs, registrar, vice president for student affairs, dean of women, director of special services,director or student teaching, recruitment officer, financial aids officer, department chairmen, and the business offices. The facilities for the campus health service, faculty-offices, and offices of Martin Luther Academy are on the second floor. The college print shop is located on the ground level floor. Practice Hall One of the older buildings on campus, the Practice Hall is devoted primarily to practice facilities for both piano and organ. Music Center Built in 1962 at a cost of $450,000 the Music Center provides outstanding facilities for a well-balanced music curriculum necessary to the preparation of qualified students for the teaching ministry. It contains class and lecture rooms, music studios, twenty-five piano and fifteen organ practice rooms, band rehearsal room, and choir rehearsal room. The Music Center and Practice Hall provide a combined number of thirtyeight pianos and fifteen organs. In addition there are several electronic organs and twelve electronic pianos on campus with a teacher console, the latter being used for beginning instruction. 17

Luther Memorial Union First used in 1968, Luther Memorial Union, built at a cost of $1,500,000 and made possible through the generous response of the members of the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod to the Missio Dei Offering, has become a center of campus activity. This building provides four facilities: cafeteria and kitchen, student union, gymnasium, and a large auditorium. The campus post office is also located in this building.

New Library dedicated October 17, 1971 Library The new library was dedicated on October 17,1971. It is a two-level building surrounded by a shallow dry moat with ramps leading to the main entrance on the second level, facing the Academic Center. The upper level has a spacious lobby with a circulation desk, card catalog, index table, bulletin boards, and display cases. On this level is also found a large work area provided with carrels and work stations, a lounge area, the current magazine and newspaper shelves, and the reserve book circulation area. In addition there is a working area for the staff to receive and process new acquisitions to the library, the librarian's office, a freight elevator, and a room for the library staff. Scattered throughout the upper level are low island shelves for reference volumes. There is also a small conference room. The lower level houses the book stacks, ailowing an eventual capacity of 100,000 volumes. At present there are 27,000 volumes. On this level also are located the curriculum library, the children's books library, and recordings and tapes. A media center for educational hardware will permit production of materials and their use. There are also a seminar room, a faculty carreled study area, and typing rooms. 18

Student Housing

The majority of the students live in campus dormitories, However, due to the rapid increase in enrollment, it has not been possible to provide on-campus housing for all students. The college has arranged for off-campus housing in private homes, most of which are a convenient distance from the campus. Junior and senior men and women are assigned to these by the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Dean of Women. Summit Hall

Built in 1911 and enlarged in 1926, Summit Hall is a residence for 180 male students. This recently remodeled building is being completely refurnished over a period of years. Summit Hall Annex

A former residence for the Dean of Students, this dwelling is used as a residence for a dozen college men. Centennial Hall

Constructed in 1951 at a cost of $350,000, this women's dormitory provides living quarters for 108 academy students, and on the lower level, for twenty college students. This building was erected with thank-offering funds raised in connection with the Centennial (1950) of the WisconsinEv. Lutheran Synod. West Hall

This dormitory, built in 1945, was relocated and improved in 1967. It provides housing for thirty-four men. Hillview Hall

This four-story women's residence hall was constructed in 1964 at a cost of $820,000. It provides most modern facilities for 220 women, two in a room. Highland Hall

Similar in exterior design to H~llvlewHall, this women's residence hall was occupied in the fall of 1970. It shares a common lobby with Hillview Hall. Accommodations are provided for 228 students. Waldheim

This two-story house serves a dual purpose. It provides a home for a faculty family on the first floor and a comfortable home for ten women on the second floor. Duplex - South Washington

This two-apartment residence is a homey and comfortable living place for ten college women and the Dean of Women.



In keeping with its primary purpose it is obvious that Dr. Martin Luther College must consider qualified applicants on the basis of a preferential sequence: 1. those who are members of the church body which governsthe collegeand who intend to prepare for its teaching ministry; 2. those who are members of other church bodies but who are in agreement with the scriptural position of the WisconsinEv. Lutheran Synod and intend to enter its teaching ministry; 3. those who are members of the governing church body but who do not intend to prepare for its teaching ministry; 4. members of congregations who are in fellowship with the governingchurch body. Agreement Since the WisconsinEv. Lutheran Synod underwrites a substantial portion of the educational costs for its divinity students, discontinuance of studies or failure of the graduates to accept assignment in one of its schools results in considerable loss to the church. For this reason the Board of Ctmtrol requires all divinity students at the time of admission to agree that: 1. they will not discontinue their studies at Dr. Martin Luther Collegeexcept by the advice, or with the consent, of the faculty; 2. they will as graduates submit to the decision of the Assignment Committee of the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod and assume their calling into the church wherever assigned. Still in effect is the promise of students enrolled before September, 1969, to be responsible for applicable tuition if they should discontinue their studies, or if after graduation they elect not to accept assignment, or if they disqualify themselvesfor assignment. Procedures

Prospective freshmen, transfer students, or foreign students may secure application blanks by writing the Admissions Office of the college. All entering college freshmen are required to have written the test of the American College Testing Program, commonly called the ACT test. Information about this test is normally given to all high school seniors through their school officials. Generally these tests are administered at convenient centers in October, December, February, and April.


When an application is submitted, arrangements should be made to supply a transcript of the credits earned in high school and, in the case of transfer students, also a transcript of their college credits. When an application is received, a form will be sent to the applicant's pastor

for completion. This completed form together with the transcript of credits and usually the results of the ACT test is the basis for decision by the Admissions Committee. Prior to the opening of the academic year successfulapplicants will be mailed a physical health form as well as all necessary information. The physical health form is to be completed and returned to the administration office at least ten days prior to the assigned day of registration. Married Students

Applications from married students are considered only in cases where the applicant has determined later in life to prepare for full-time service in the church. Such applications are considered only as exceptions. Aside from the foregoing, married students are not accepted. This policy is waived during the summer sessions. Registration

All students are expected to register at the time stipulated. Late registrants will be assessed five dollars. Under no circumstances will students be permitted to register later than two weeks after the beginning of a semester. The college reservesthe right to determine the validity of such late registrations. Classification

All students enrolled in courses preparatory to full-time servicein the church are classified as divinity students. This is the case because upon completion of the prescribed curriculum all qualified graduates are presented to the church for a divine call. ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS High School Graduates

A cumulative grade average not lower than C-minus must have been earned in high school. Ten or more credits must have been earned in the following fields that are of special importance in teacher education: English, social studies, science, and mathematics.


Transfer Students Doctor Martin Luther College welcomes transfer students meeting the general requirements. It grants all transferred credits of C quality or better the grade

point value of 1.000 on a three-point scale. Credits of D quality are given only a provisional acceptance. They can be validated by a year of residence work with a cumulative grade point average of 1.000 or better.

When a student voluntarily withdraws from school, charges relative to room and board and tuition will be calculated on a per diem basis. This policy applies on a semester basis to room and board and tuition. However, in addition, a $25.00 severance will be charged. No other fees will be refunded in case of withdrawal. Financial Regulations At least one-half of_all board and tuition accounts is to be paid at the beginning of each semester, the balance before the close of each semester. If the balance is not paid in full, the student will be required to sign a note with interest charges at the prevailing rates before he is allowed to enter the next semester. All fees must be paid in their entirety at the time of registration. No transfer of credits will be issued until standing accounts are paid in full. No June reports will be sent until the accounts for the school year concluded have been paid or satisfactory arrangements have been made. There is a charge' of $1.00 for all transcripts of credits except the first, which is supplied gratis. The charge for room and board may be revised by the Board of Trustees of the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod prior to the beginning of a new school year as changing economic conditions may demand. The tuition charges are subject to review by the Synod in each of its biennial conventions. Information on financial aids for students is found on pages 36 - 38 of the 1972-73 catalog.


GRADING SYSTEM AND GRADE POINTS Grade Point Average A grade point system is used as a convenient method of determining whether a student has done work of C average. In our system the semester hour is defined as one class period of fifty minutes per week for one semester. A student's average is expressed by the ratio between the number of semester hours taken and the number of grade points earned. This ratio is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours taken. A minimum ratio of 1.000 is required for graduation. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course provided he Ins It cumulative grade point average of 2.000 or better and other conditions make it advisable. Such permission is obtained from his faculty adviserand the Registrar. Chart of Grading System GRADE

The temporary grade I (Incomplete) is granted when a student doing otherwise acceptable work is unable to complete the course assignments for reasons deemed cogent by the instructor. A first-semester Incomplete must be converted into a permanent grade by the end of the second semester, and a secondsemester Incomplete by the end of summer school, or the permanent grade is recorded as an F.


Repetition of Courses A student must earn credit in a course that has been failed and is required for graduation either by repeating the course or by successfully completing an approved substitute. A course may also be repeated if a student desires to better his grade point average. The grade earned in repetition will be figured in the student's average, but the original grade will remain on the record. Courses taken to remove a failure or repeated to better the grade point average can be taken only in residence or through the Dr. Martin Luther College Correspondence Program. Academic Classifications Academic classifications are computed on a semester basis and determined by the grade point average earned in the semester just completed. The goal is the classification of student in good standing. Other ratings jeopardize the student's stay at the school. However, these semester classifications in no way change or abrogate any graduation requirements.

Regulations Regarding Academic Classifications A student on either regular or strict probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester of residence. Normally, if he fails to gain this status, he will be required to withdraw. Application for readmittance will be considered only after a lapse of two semesters. The course load of freshmen and sophomores on either regular or strict probation and of juniors and seniors on strict probation will be reduced by one course of three or more credits to aid the student in acquiring good standing. Consultation between the student involved and his adviser and the advice of the registrar will determine the course to be dropped. In the interest of the student as well as in the interest of maintaining proper academic standards of the school, a student on strict probation must seek the counsel of a review committee to determine the activities for which he may be eligible. This review committee consisting of the student's adviser, the vice president for student affairs, and the vice president for academic affairs shall establish a schedule of activities designed best to meet the academic and social needs of the individual student. Credits and grade points earned in residence during a summer session are added to those earned during the last semester of the student's attendance. They may apply toward the removal of an academic probation status. Only such undergraduates as have the status of student in good standing and a cumulative grade point average of 1.000 will be approved for emergency or substitute teaching. 26

Credit Hour Load The normal average academic load per semester is as follows: Freshmen - 16% hours; Sophomores - 18112 hours; Juniors - 17 to 18 hours; Seniors - 16 hours. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course provided he has a cumulative grade point average of 2.000 or better and other conditions make it advisable. Such permission is obtained by the student from his faculty adviser and the registrar. An additional credit hour will be added to the student's academic load if the student elects to take instruction inpiano or organ. To avail himself of this privilege, a student who is not concentrating in music may obtain approval from his adviser and Music Division chairman to elect piano or organ if he has a cumulative grade point average of 1.000 or better. A student may register to audit a course beyond his normal credit load if he is a student in good standing and has the consent of his adviser, the instructor of the class he wishes to audit, and the registrar. An audit may be changed to a course being taken for credit if the student has a cumulative grade point average of 2.000 and makes such change for' credit in the time allowed. Change in Course Registration A student may make a change in course registration after the official period of course registration and through the first two weeks of the new semester with the approval of his adviser and the registrar. A fee of $5 :00 is charged for any change in registration initiated by the student after the official period of course registration. Withdrawal from Courses A student may withdraw from a course with the approval of his adviser, the instructor of the course, and the registrar. Withdrawal from keyboard work requires also the approval of the chairman of the Music Division. Such withdrawals may be made without academic penalty during the first three 'WIeeksof a semester. After the first three weeks and up to midsemester, withdrawal may be permitted under special circumstances. For such courses the student's record will show either WP (withdrawal passing) or WF (withdrawal failing). An unauthorized withdrawal from a course will be recorded as an F. Such an F as well as a WF will be counted in the grade point average. Withdrawal from College Students who find it necessary to withdraw from the college must report first to the office of the vice president for student affairs for instructions on procedures. A student who does not follow the official withdrawal procedure, and stops attending classes without authorization, will receive failing grades in all classes for which he is enrolled. Students are not permitted to withdraw officially during the last two weeks of any semester. If a student under 21 applies for withdrawal, the college will require authorization, in writing, from his parents. 27

Graduation 29


Life of the Student

Student life is to be Christian life - an outward expression of inward, Spiritworked faith in Christ. Because such faith needs continual nourishment, life at Dr. Martin Luther College is centered in the Word of God. Students attend divine services at St. John's or St. Paul's Lutheran Churches, the WisconsinEv. Lutheran Synod churches in New UIm. These congregations also invite the students to commune regularly at their altars. Chapel services are held in the morning and evening of each school day, in the college chapel-auditorium at which students are expected to attend. These devotions are designed to focus the light of the Word on student life and on the student's future vocation, as well as to meet his over-all spiritual needs.


A maturing Christian who is preparing for full-time work in his Savio-r's Church is expected to exercise an increasing degree of self-disciplineand sound judgment. Hence it should not be necessary to surround him with a multitude of rules and regulations. Nevertheless, fruitful preparation for service in the Church requires the proper environment which develops from following certain fundamental policies and procedures. These policies and procedures are summarized in the student handbook. The Dean of Students, together with his assistants, concerns himself with campus life and activity so that they are consistent with a Christian profession. His office exists as well to be of service to the individual student. Housing

Except for those students whose home is in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervision. Since the dormitories not large enough to house all students requiring resident accommodations, the college arranges for some offcampus housing. Students thus assigned pay the identical board and room fee to the college as those in the dormitories and are expected to conform to the same general rules.


Personal Belongings

A bed and mattress is provided by the college. Besides personal effects, the student provides a mattress pad, pillow, blankets, and a bed spread. Students will also provide a desk lamp unless they are assigned to HillviewHall. Linen service is provided and is available to all students at a cost of $32.50 for the entire school year, payable in full at the time of registration. Each student receiving the linen service will be furnished freshly laundered, each week, two sheets, one pillow case, two large bath towels, one small hand towel, and two


wash cloths. The college feels that this is the most convenient, economical, and healthy method of providing the student's linen and towel needs and urges all resident students to take advantage of it. Students not using the linen service will furnish and launder their own sheets, pillow cases, and towels. Laundry facilities are available on the campus. In addition to this, school supplies may be purchased in the college book store. The college also operates a bank system for the students' convenience. Automobiles Use of automobiles by resident students is permitted under certain circumstances. Permission to operate automobiles is to be requested from the Dean of Students at least two weeks before the automobile is brought to the campus. Automobile privileges are denied students on either disciplinary or academic

strict probation. Permission to have an automobile entails payment of each semester's school expenses in advance, a ten-dollar registration fee, and proof of adequate insurance coverage, including coverage for passengers. Juniors and seniors are permitted local use of their cars for reasonable cause. Freshmen and sophomores will be permitted the use of their automobiles only for vacation and weekend trips home or for family emergency. No local use of automobiles is permitted for freshmen and sophomores. Additional information regarding the ownership and operation of automobiles while in school attendance is available upon request.

STUDENT SERVICES Orientation An orientation program is conducted during the first days of each new school year and is continued at regular intervals during the first semester. The purpose of the program is to give information about student life and student responsibilities at Dr. Martin Luther College. All members of the freshman classand all new students in other classesparticipate in this program. Counseling Each student has assigned to him a faculty member who acts as his advisor. The advisor assists him in selecting his area of concentration and course electives. The student is encouraged to consult with his advisor about his academic work and problems. Personal problems may also be discussedwith the advisor, as well as with the Dean of Students and his assistants. For counseling in spiritual matters, students are asked to consult with the Dean of Students, who is the pastoral counselor for the student body.


In order to maintain close ties with the home, grade reports are sent to parents or guardians at the end of each semester. In addition the college provides mid-semester evaluations of freshmen. These mid-semester freshmen evaluations are designed primarily to indicate adjustment to college life and are sent to parents or guardians and to the pastors of the students. Health Services Each student's health history, which he is required to send following his acceptance, is on file. At the time of registration, he pays a medical fee which is used to cover authorized medical bills. This includes medical coverage for those participating in anyon-campus or off-campus activities having faculty sanction, exclusive of interscholastic sports. Normally the maximum payment is $100.00. For extended coverage, the college offers a voluntary group medical and hospital insurance program with Blue Cross-Blue Shield. Two registered nurses engaged by the college are on duty daily. Dramatics, Concerts, and Lectures The academic community of the college presents cultural, educational, and recreational events during the school year. Dramatics include operettas, dramas, serious one-act plays, and children's theater productions. Numerous musical events take place on the campus during the year: recitals by staff members, solo performances by advanced students in organ and piano, and concerts by the several choral and band organizations. From time to time outstanding artists perform at the college. In addition to frequent displays by various academic departments, the college sponsors an annual lyceum series, representing various fields of interest. The City of New DIm offers the Community Concert Series annually at special rates to students. Mankato State College, Gustavus College, and colleges in the Twin Cities, the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Symphony, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, and the annual visit of the Metropolitan Opera Company offer excellent cultural opportunities of which students may avail themselves. Financial Aids Dr. Martin Luther College is vitally concerned with the financial problems of its students and their families. It is well aware of the fact that the rising costs of education have placed a strain on many family budgets. Like most colleges, Dr. Martin Luther College believes that the primary responsibility for financing a college education rests upon the student and his family even though the Synod continues to subsidize each student who is preparing for work in the Church. In these times of rising costs it is also apparent that other means of financial 33

Legend for Campus Aerial


Luther Memorial Union

assistance to students must be found. Recognizing this need, the college has established a Financial Aids Office and appointed a faculty member as Financial Aids Officer to administer this phase of student life. Financial aids are made available to students who, without such help, would be unable to attend college. The aids consist of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and work opportunities which may be offered to the student. Eligibility for assistance is based on need and on academic promise. Need may be defined as the difference between the total cost of attendance and the amount which the student and his family should be able to provide. Scholarships The scholarships awarded by the college represent a recognition of ability and promise. These awards are made only to such as have demonstrated excellence in scholastic achievement. In granting this assistance, the faculty deems citizenship a factor which dare not be omitted from consideration. The student does not apply for a scholarship but is selected by the faculty on the basis of his achievement.

Grants-in-Aid The other parts of the assistance program are more closely related to the student's need. Students experiencing difficulty in financing their schooling may receive assistance by means of grants-in-aid. To become eligible the students must make application for such assistance with the Financial Aids Officer. Application forms may be secured from the Financial Aids O-ffice. To aid in determining financial need, the school utilizes the assistance of the American


College Testing Service. The ACT will perform a need analysis for the college for each applicant. The application forms, known as the ACT Family Financial Statement, are available to incoming freshmen at their high schools through the principal or guidance counselor. For students already enrolled, the forms may. be obtained from the Financial Aids Officer of the college.

All scholarships and other awards are made on a year to year basis. With the exception of scholarships, renewal is based on need, academic achievement, and funds available. Awards may be continued, increased, or decreased according to conditions existing at the time applications for renewal are processed. Renewal applications must be filed with the Financial Aids Officer each year. Student Employment The Financial Aids Office also serves the student as an employment office. Any student desiring part-time employment for covering educational expenditures may register with the Financial Aids Officer. To aid the office in keeping an up-to-date register of all possible places of employment, students who secure employment on their own should also register with the office. A maximum of sixteen hours of work per week, unless otherwise specified, is permitted. In the interest of the student on strict probation, the privilegeof holding a.position of regular employment will be subject to periodic review. FederalAids The college participates in the National Defense Student Loan Program. This is a fund established for the purpose of making long-term, low-interest loans to students in need of financial assistance to pursue their education. Another of the government programs utilized by the college is the "offcampus" category of the College Work Study Program. This program provides for the expansion of part-time employment opportunities for students with local non-profit organizations. Again eligibility is based upon the student's need of the income from such employment to pursue a collegeeducation. Non-College Sources of Aid Students of Dr. Martin Luther Collegeare eligible for: Federally Insured Student Loans Social Security Educational Benefits Veterans' Administration Programs Bureau of Indian Affairs assistance. Also, the student may be eligible for assistance from the state of which he is a resident through:


State Guaranteed Loan Program State Scholarship or Grant-in-Aid Program Vocational Rehabilitation'Department Programs. Some business organizations offer scholarships and grants to children of employees. Further information-or aid in securing assistance from any of the above sources may be obtained from the Financial Aids Officer.

REGULAR SESSIONS Basic Curriculum Since Dr. Martin Luther College is maintained for the purpose of training ministers of religion to serve as teachers in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, it offers one basic curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. The first two years of this program provide the student with a broad general education with the final two years adding to general education but also including specialization in the field of education and a concentration in one academic area. The areas of concentration from which a student may select one are English, mathematics, music, and social studies. 'Included within the basic curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, students may in the future serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod.

In an effort to better serve the Church and more specifically the members of the WisconsinEvangelicalLutheran Synod, Dr. Martin Luther Collegehas established a correspondence study program. This program is intended to better prepare men and women as teachers in our Christian day schools and high schools and as lay leaders in our congregations.


Correspondence courses aid an individual in achieving an educational goal through home study under professional guidance. The correspondence courses offered by Dr. Martin Luther College are prepared and taught by regular members of the faculty who usually teach the same courses on campus. The content, work requirement, and credit offered for courses in the correspondence program are equivalent to the same courses in the regular program of the college. Normally, a three-credit correspondence course is divided into twenty-four lessons, a mid-term and a final examination. Eligibility

Enrollment' in the Correspondence Course Program for credit shall be open to all who would qualify for admission into regular and summer school sessions of Dr. Martin Luther College. Sunday School teachers and laymen are also encouraged to apply even if they are not interested in academic credit. Admission

Application for correspondence study may be made at any time. If the demand for correspondence courses availableshould exceed the manpower available at present, preference will be given to those who are working toward the Synod's certification program. Cost The fee for a three-credit correspondence course is $45.00. Other costs for the student include textbooks, materials, and mailing expenses. Further Information

Complete information concerning the Correspondence Study Program may be obtained by addressing your request to the Director of Special Services.
