HISTORY Minnesota Synod Although Dr. Martin Luther College is now owned and operated by the WisconÂˇ sin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, the actual founder was the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Minnesota and other States. During 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. Through the zeal of the Rev. C. J. Albrecht, pastor of St. Paul's congregation in New Ulrn.and president of the Minnesota 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 history of the college 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 college for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption for more than ninety years. After the Nebraska synod in 1904, the union, then known other States, later, Lutheran Synod.
District Synod had become the fourth member of the joint federation developed into an organic union by 1917. This as the Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of Wisconsin and in 1959, assumed the name of the Wisconsin Evangelical
At the time of the federated merger, a three-year preparatory curriculum and a two-veer college course were adopted, both of which were open to male students only. The need for women teachers caused the school to become co-educational in 1896. 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 in 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 ecccmplished 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. Both schools continue to use the same facilities. Dr. Martin Luther College is now a four-year teacher education college which grants the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education.
PHILOSOPHY AND PURPOSE
The existence and function of Dr. Martin Luther College rest on unalterable convictions regarding man, as drawn from the God-given Holy Scriptures. We believe man to be the crown of God's creation. As such, he was made to know God and to share His company. He was endowed with gifts that permitted him to become acquainted with,enjoy thl! use of,and find cause for wonder and gratitude in everything that God fashioned for human service and delight. We also hold to the reality of sin, a persistent hereditary wickedness in man which compels him to oppose his gracious Creator. In sin we find the underlying cause for all evil. Sin ruptured the Creator's design for man, frustrated the creation's service to man, and fixed on man a guilt and helplessness from which God alone could set him free. This He did through His Son, the God-Man Jesus Christ, who entered human history and restored the Creator's eternal design for man. In the historical verities of the person and work of Jesus Christ as unfolded in the Scriptures, we find the basis for our Christian assurance that man, the sinner was redeemed and reconciled to God to share His company in this lite and in the life to come. As believers in Christ we count ourselves people of high privilege imbued with a gratitude to our Savior-God that shapes our lives in every direction and that enables us to carry out our various God-given responsibilities: to ourselves-the duty to cultivate our potentialities divine gifts to be used to the glory of God;
of body and soul as
to our fellowman as our equal before God-the obligation to proclaim the freedom-bringing truth in Christ and to assist him in whatever other manner we have opportunity; to the world apart from man-the respect that recognizes all created things as gifts of God to be investigated, used, or enjoyed in a manner that harmonizes with divine design. These Christ-centered convictions guide us in every sphere of human thought and achievement. Thus, we view the study of man and his culture, together with the pursuit of other knowledge, as not only beneficial but obligatory. We humans have been appointed lords of all things; although weakened by sin, we are still enjoined to search out whatever is useful and wholesome in this life so that in our whole being we may continually draw nearer to the potential for which God made us.
We engage in this pursuit not merely for its own sake or to contribute to the kind of wisdom by which man hopes to overcome the deep problems of human existence on earth. Our pursuit of knowledge is aimed primarily at growing in the wisdom which God teaches in His Word: first, that through the study of man and his culture we may see in 9road context man's persistent weaknesses and failings, and his continuing need for the Savior; second, that despite the crippl ing effects of sin we may appreciate the wide range of man's God-given talents for doing, thinking, and speaking what is beautiful, praiseworthy, profound, and mentally and emotionally satisfying; third, that we may come away from this experience with a larger understanding of God's ways among men and a heightened awe for the majesty, goodness, and wisdom of God. These convictions regarding God and man are cherished by the teachers and students of Dr. Martin Luther College as well as by the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod who own and maintain the college. These convictions are the reasons for the existence of the Synod and all of its schools. Because these convictions derive from divinely revealed truth, we count it our Godgiven responsibility to share them with every man and to impress them on each new generation of the church. Indeed, because of these convictions, we equate education with Christian education, which puts all learning and wisdom into the perspective of Christ and His Word. Since this requires the service of Christimbued educators, all who are called to teach in the schools of our Synod are expected to share our Christ-centered convictions knowledgeably and to demonstrate them by the testimony of their lives. At the same time, our Christian duty to church and society obligates us to staff the schools of the Synod with educators sufficiently competent in whatever other learning is necessary for meaningful and responsible life in today's world. ThereforeDR. MARTIN LUTHER COLLEGE EXISTS TO PREPARE QUALIFIED EDUCATORS FOR THE TEACHING MINISTRY IN THE CHRISTIAN DAY SCHOOLS OF THE WISCONSIN EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN SYNOD. To carry out this assignment Dr. Martin Luther College has built its curriculum and its program of student life around the proclamation of Christ in the Scriptures. In the curriculum all subjects find their unity in this proclamation, especially through a select group of required religion courses which deal with the Scriptures as the record of God's acts among men and the revelation of God's truths for all men and for all time. These divine acts and truths are viewed and pursued
in the wider setting of man's history and cultural milieu through the ages because we hold that the proper understanding of man requires us to be conversant with the broad theater of human affairs, particularly in those places where the proclamation of Christ has been historically most visible. Dr. Martin Luther College therefore offers one basic curriculum of general education courses in religion, music, science, mathematics, and the humanities; of area of concentration courses selected from one of the following: lish, mathematics, music, science: and social studies;
of professional education courses in the foundations, the practical method> ology, and the art of teaching. Through this program, Dr. Martin Luther College desires 1. to strengthen His Word;
in the student a consecrated spirit of love for God and
2. to educate the whole person for faithful, capable, intelligent citizenship in today's world; 3. to permit the student some beginning opportunity at academic specialization both for personal experience and enjoyment and for wider service as a teacher; 4. to equip the student with the pedagogical skills and the practical training that will permit him competently to communicate Christian truth, knowledge, an attitude of wonder for the created universe, and love for God and fellowman; 5. to assist the student in developing the understandings, attitudes, and skills that are necessary for meeting the worship needs of the Synod's congregations, always keeping professional training in church music an integral part of teacher education. Primary responsibility for the instructional program rests with the members of the faculty who hold their office as accountable to God through a divine call administered under the superintendence of the church. In discharging this trust, the faculty recognizes a continuing responsibility for improvement through private study, through further study at other places of learning, through attendance at meetings of scholarly societies, and through participation in various in-service programs on the campus, These are encouraged not only for personal satisfaction but also for effective classroom instruction. By demonstrating a respect for continued scholarship and by the example of personal dedication, the faculty hopes to encourage among the students the love for learning, the spirit of inquiry, and the cultivation of wider intellectual horizons that characterize a wholesome college atmosphere.
In matters regarding general student life, Dr. Martin Luther College carries out its work on the basis of truths enunciated in the Word of God. Thus, the college is obligated to show concern for every student's well-being under Christ, and every student has the responsibility to give respect and obedience to the school and its policies. Christian citizenship at Dr. Martin Luther College is nurtured also through regular formal worship that draws its message directly from the God-given Scriptures. Worship services are held every academic day to edify the whole college family and to rehearse divine truths in which school learning and life are unified. For the further training of the whole person under Christ, Dr. Martin Luther College encourages student participation in programs of physical and cultural activity, and in student government. These programs, intended primarily for the benefit of students, also serve, edify, and provide recreation for the enti re campus tarnilv.the local community, and the church-at-large. In their role of subservience to the school's chief task, non-academic activities are also organized and administered in conformity with the spirit of Christ. In its total educational program Dr. Martin Luther College views its faculty as more than an instrument to aid students in acquiring knowledge. The faculty member is expected to serve as student adviser in academic matters and as Christian counselor in other capacities where assistance is desirable or mandatory. Dr. Martin Luther College further sees the general well-being of school and student body strengthened and preserved by strong and spontaneous faculty interest in all aspects of student life-an interest which the faculty shows by being sociable with students, by attending or participating in student activities, and by setting students an example of a God-pleasing life in Christ. Thus, in every aspect of school life, Dr. Martin Luther College seeks to fulfill its assignment: to furnish the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod with teacher candidates thoroughly qualified for discharging the high responsibilities of Christian education in a manner that is God-pleasing and worthy of the world's respect. Such preoccupation with teacher education awakens a variety of auxiliary enterprises whereby the school and its faculty freely serve both their constituency and the general public. As the only teacher education institution of the church it serves, Dr. Martin Luther College recognizes an obligation to furnish educational leadership to that church in whatever manner the faculty's resources of scholarship and professional expertise can be utilized. Dr. Martin Luther College also stands ready to give of its time and its facilities to church and society wherever and whenever this may be done without sacrificing its assignment or compromising its Christian principles.
Consistent with its philosophy and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College in its regular sessions offers a four year curriculum in elementary teacher education, culminating in a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education and enabling graduates with full synodical certification to teach in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Its summer sessions offer undergraduate courses, enrichment courses, and workshops. Its synodical certification program offers those who have only the required academic background an opportunity to pursue the religion and related courses required to achieve the status of a certified teacher in the Synod. Courses offered in the summer sessions accommodate themselves also to the certification program. It is primarily in the interest of synodical certification, as well, that a fourth program, that of correspondence study, has been inaugurated and is being expanded. Dr. Martin Luther College is also aware of current trends in the field of elementary education and particularly of the increased emphasis in certain disciplines. The curriculum, therefore, makes provision for areas of concentration, currently in five disciplines. Other programs are also under study so that the college may continue to exercise the kind of education 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, Wisconsin 53208. 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 regarding major curriculum revisions; for propertv 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.
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 stated philosophy and principles of the college. Normally the faculty discharges its responsibilities in these areas through regularly scheduled meetings.
Academic Council The work of the various academic divisions within the college is co-ordinated through the academic council. It is composed of the division heads, the registrar, and the vice president for academic affairs who is the chairman. This council is responsible to the faculty and the president.
Committees Various functions of the faculty are carried on through committee assignments. The standing committees: Academic Council - Vice President for Academic Affairs, chairman; T. J. Hartwig, J.

Expansive Flandrau State Park, with good hiking, picnic, and camping areas, is situated within easy walking distance of the campus.
Buildings for Instruction,
The building in which the college carried out its mission in the first twenty-five years of its existence is now one of a complex of thirteen buildings, five of which were constructed since 1962. Academic Center Erected in 1928 at a cost of $328,000 and remodeled and enlarged in 1968 for twice that sum, the Academic Center is used for classrooms and assemblies. Its well appointed auditorium accommodates 900 people and provides a setting for the daily chapel services. In 1971 a three manual pipe organ, built by Casavant Freres, was installed. In the instructional areas are classrooms, lecture rooms, a science suite, and an art unit. The area formerly used for the library is a bookstore, where students and visitors can purchase textbooks, paper backs, music, DMLC labeled wearing apparel, and miscellaneous gift items. 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 oresldenttor student affairs, dean of women, director of special services, director of 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. An office for the collegiate council is located on the third floor. The college graphics center is located on the ground level. Music Hall One of the older buildings on campus, the Music Hall contains rooms for practicing piano on the first floor and for practicing organ on the second floor. A music classroom is also on the first floor. 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 prepare qualified students for the teaching ministry. It contains music studios, piano and organ practice rooms, 100-seat choral and instrumental rehearsal rooms which double as classrooms, and faculty offices. The Music Center and Music Hall provide thirty-eight pianos and sixteen organs. Three electronic organs and sixteen electronic pianos with a teacher console also are on campus. The electronic pianos are for beginning instruction.
Dedicated in 1968, Luther Memorial Union, built at a cost of $1,500,000 and made possible through the generolH5response of the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod to the Missio Deo Offering, is a center of campus activity. This building provides multiple facilities: a large gymnasium which can also be used as a large auditorium, the kitchen and cafeteria, and the student union with a snack bar, large lounge, game area, campus post office, and meeting rooms for the school newspaper, school annual, and the collegiate council.
Library The library, dedicated in 1971, is a two-level, air conditioned building surrounded by a shallow dry moat. Ramps lead to the main entrance on the upper level.

MATRICULATION Admissions Entrance Requirements Financial Requirements Grading System and Grade Points Academic Policies Teacher Education Program Requirements for Graduation Assignment
Because of its singular function and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College must consider carefully the vocational goals of all applicants. The college gives primary consideration to qualified applicants who intend to prepare for the teaching ministry in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. The college is also dedicated to receiving qualified applicants who intend to prepare for the teaching ministry in church bodies or congregations which publicly share the doctrinal position of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
In view of the fact that the Bible teaches that "God is no respecter of persons" (Acts 10: 34) and that "there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all" (Colossians 3: 11) and in view of the fact that the sole purpose of this college is to educate students for the teaching ministry of the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod, this institution cannot and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other schooladministered programs.
Since the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod underwrites a substantial portion of the educational costs for students attending this college, the Board of Control requires all full-time students to state that 1)
they agree to the objectives and policies set forth in the college catalog;
they agree to pursue the college's program of studies which is designated to prepare students for full-time service in the church as Christian day school teachers; and
they will as graduates submit to the decision of the assignment committee of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and assume their calling in the church wherever assigned unless as members of a church body in fellowship with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod they are to be assigned by their own church body.
Prospective freshmen, transfer students, or foreign students may secure application blanks by writing to 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. Information about this test is normally giveh to all high school seniors through their school officials. Generally these tests are administered at convenient centers in October, December, February, and April. See page 63 for additional information. 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 recommendation form is sent to the applicant's pastor for completion. This completed form, together with the transcript of credits and usually the results of the ACT, is the basis for decision by the admissions committee. Prior to the opening of the academic year, each successful applicant is.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 summer sessions. Foreign Students 1. The applications of foreign students from missions or congregations associated or in fellowship with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod will be processed in the normal manner. 2. Applications from other foreign students will be considered strictly on an individual basis. To be considered at all such applicants will have to submit valid reasons for wishing to attend a special purpose college of this kind, will have to demonstrate the educational background necessary to meeting this college's academic requirements, and will have to prove financial ability to meet all financial requirements. 3. This institution offers no international scholarships or grants-in-aid of any kind.
All students are expected to register at the time stipulated. Late registrants will be assessed $5.00. Under no circumstances will students be permitted to register later than two weeks after the beginning of a semester. The college reserves the right to determine the validity of such-late registrations. Classification All students enrolled in courses preparatory to full-time service in 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 assignment through a divine call.

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. 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 the dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours taken. A minimum ratio of 2.000 is required for graduation. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course provided he has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 or better and other conditions make this advisable. Such permission is obtained from his faculty adviser and the registrar. Chart of Grading System GRADE LETTER A B C

Student Classification Students are classified prior to the fall semester each year and retain their classification through the spri 19 semester regardless of the number of credits earned. They are classified as follows: Freshmen: Sophomores: Juniors: Seniors:
28 or fewer semester hours of credit 29-64 semester hours of credit 65-98 semester hours of credit 99 or more semester hours of credit
Incompletes 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 which 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 orrepeated to better the grade point average can be taken only in residence or, in extraordinary circumstances, through the Dr. Martin Luther College correspondence program. Academic Standing Academic standings are computed each semester on the basis of grade points earned to date. Both the semester grade point average and the cumulative grade point average will be computed at the end of each semester and at the close of the summer session. To be a student in good academic standing, the student must earn the minimum semester as well as the minimum cumulative grade point average as indicated in the table below. MINIMUM SEMESTER AND CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE FOR GOOD STANDING

Policies Regarding Academic Standings A student on 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 students on 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, the student on probation must seek the counsel of a review committee to determine the activities in which he may participate. 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 thelast 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 2,000 will be approved for emergency or substitute teaching.
Credit Hour Load To be classified as full-time, a student must be enrolled in at least twelve hours for credit. The normal academic load per semester is as follows: Freshmen: 16% hours; sophomores: 18% hours; juniors: 17 to 18 hours; seniors: 15 to 17 hours. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course provided he has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 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 in piano 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 2.000 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 3.000 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. Advanced Placement Examination High school students who receive a grade of three, four, or five in the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Test may receive 'College credit. For particular details, the high school student should write to the college administration. 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 a keyboard course requires also the approval of the music division chairman. Such withdrawals may be made without academic penalty during the first three weeks of 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). Neither the WP nor the WF will be counted in computing the grade point average. An unauthorized withdrawal from a course will be recorded as an F. Such an F will be counted in the grade point average. Withdrawal from College The student who finds it necessary to withdraw from the college must report first to his class adviser for instructions on procedures. The student who does not follow official procedures when he voluntarily withdraws from the college will receive a WP or WF as does the student who withdraws according to official procedures. In the instance of an unauthorized withdrawal, a note recording the unauthorized withdrawal will be transcribed on the student's permanent record. Students are not permitted to withdraw officially during the last two weeks of any semester. Should a student desireto re-enroll at a later date, he is to write to the president of the college for an application form.
TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM Entrance into the Program Because Dr. Martin Luther College offers a single program of education to prepare elementary teachers for the public ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, a student pursues the prescribed teacher education program. Policies Regarding the Professional Semester The professional semester makes up one semester of the senior year. One half of that semester is devoted to student teaching, and the other half is devoted to professional education course work. The following pol icies apply to students entering the professional semester: 1. Students register for student teaching early in the second semester of the junior year. 2. Before students register for student teaching, the faculty will determine their eligibility to do so. This eligibility will be determined on the basis of recommendations from the faculty screening committee which will consider other factors in addition to academic standing. 3. A student must have attained the status of good standing (ct. p. 26) before he can enter the professional semester.
REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION Questions regarding requirements in effect from September 6, 1955, and applicable to all who began their college programs before September, 1968, may be directed to the registrar.

The college faculty is represented at the meetings of this assignment committee in an advisory capacity. The committee on assignment of calls pursues the policy of not considering women graduates for assignment who intend to be married prior to, the next school term.
LIFE General Policies Student Services Financial Aids Student Activities
Spiritual Life of the Student Student life is to be Christian life, an outward expression of inward, Spiritworked faith in Christ. Because such faith needs continuous 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 Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod churches in New Ulm. These congregations also invite the students to commune regularly at their altars. Chapel services are held in the morning and the evening of each school day in the chapel-auditorium. These devotions are designed to focus the light of the Word on student life and on the students' future vocation, as well as to meet their over-all spiritual needs. Students are .expected to attend Sunday services and chapel services regularly. Class Attendance Dr. Martin Luther College requires regular class attendance. Each absence from class is recorded and must be accounted for by the student. The calendar for the school year determines class days and vacation periods. Early departures and late returns at vacation time are not to be requested unless emergencies or very clear cut and acceptable reasons exist. Conduct A maturing Christian who is preparing for full-time work in his Savior's Church is expected to exercise an increasing degree of self-discipline and 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 vice president for student affairs, particularly in his function as campus pastor, concerns himself with campus life and activity so that they are consistent with a Christian profession. He and the dean of women, together with their staffs, function to serve in the most effective ways the best interests of the individual student. Housing Except for those students whose home is in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervision. Since the dormitories are 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 policies. Dormitories are closed during Christmas and Easter vacations. On graduation day, students are expected to be checked out of the dormitories by 5:00 p.rn. (See p. 19 for information about individual dormitories.)
The college provides bed and mattress for each student. Besides personal effects, the student provides mattress pad, pillow, blankets, bedspread. The student also provides a desk lamp, unless assigned to Hillview or Summit Halls. The college cannot and does not carry insurance on the student's personal possessions. If there is concern about such coverage, it may be advisable for the student to check with the family's insurance counselor. Linen service is available to all students for $32.50 for the school year, payable in full at time of registration. Each student receiving 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-arlOurges all resident students to take advantage 'of it. Stu: dents not using the linen service will furnish and launder their own sheets, pillow cases, and towels. Laundry facilities are available on the campus: The college operetes a bank system for the students' convenience. Automobiles
Use of motor vehicles by resident students is permitted when in conformity with established policies. A request to operate a motor vehicle is to be made of the vice president for student affairs at least two weeks before the vehicle is to be brought to campus. Students on either disciplinary or academ ic probation are not permitted motor vehicle privileges. MOTOR VEHICLE PRIVILEGES ENTAIL PAYMENT OF EACH SEMESTER'S COSTS IN ADVANCE, A $10.00 REGISTRATION FEE, AND PROOF OF ADEQUATE INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR PASSENGERS. Juniors and seniors in good standing are permitted general use of their vehicles. As a general rule, freshmen and sophomores are permitted the use of their vehicles only for vacation periods and week-end trips home. More specific information regarding the ownership and operation of motor vehicles is available upon request from the office of the vice president for student affairs.
STUDENT SERVICES Orientation
An orientation program is conducted during the first days of each school year and is continued at regular intervals during the first semester. The purpose of the program is to provide information relating to student life and responsibilities at Dr. Martin Luther College. All incoming freshmen and all transfer students are involved in this program.
Each student is assigned a faculty member as an adviser. The adviser assists in selecting the area of concentration and course electives. The student is encouraged to utilize every aspect of the counseling program. Personal problems may also be discussed with the adviser as well as with the vice president for student affairs or dean of women, both of whom maintain daily office hours. In keeping with the Christian family concept, grade reports are sent to parents at the end of each semester. In addition, mid-semester evaluations of freshmen are provided, designed primarily to indicate adjustment to college life. Since the college is concerned about its students and their performance, preparing as they are for fulltime service in the church, and since students are accepted by the college only upon written recommendation of their pastors, pastors of those students who are experiencing difficulties may be consulted in order to serve the students' spiritual and academic best interests. Health Services. This unit is staffed by two registered nurses who have on file the completed health data and physical examination forms required of all entering students. A medical fee to cover authorized medical bills is assessed at the time of registration along with other fees. Thereby medical coverage, exclusive of interscholastic sports and ski club activities, is provided for those involved in any sanctioned oncampus or off-campus activities. Normally the maximum coverage is $100_00. For extended coverage the college makes available a voluntary group medical and hospital program offered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield.
Dramatics, Concerts, and Lectures The academic community of the college presents cultural and educational events throughout the year. Numerous musical events are scheduled: recitals by staff members, solo performances by advanced students in organ and piano, and concerts by the choral and band organizations. From time to time outstanding artists are engaged for campus performances. In addition to frequent displays by various academic divisions, the college sponsors an annual lyceum series, representing various fields of interest. Mankato State University, Gustavus Adolphus 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 opportunities for cultural growth.
FINANCIAL AIDS Dr. Martin luther College, vitally concerned with the financial problems of its students and their families, is well aware that rising costs of education place 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. However, the cost of preparing an individual for work in the public ministry is shared by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod through a subsidization of more than 50% of the annual operating cost. Financial assistance is available for every student who, without such help, would be unable to attend college. The assistance consists of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and work opportunities. Eligibility for assistance is based upon need and academic promise. Need is defined as the difference between the total educational cost 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 students who have demonstrated excellence in scholastic achievement and Christian citizenship. The student does not apply for a scholarship but is selected by the faculty on the basis of achievement.
Grants-in-Aid The bulk of the assistance program is designed to meet student need through grants-in-aid. To become eligible, students must make application for such assistance through the financial aids officer from whom necessary forms can be obtained. To help determine financial need, the college utilizes the assistance of the American, College Testing Service. The ACTwil1 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 college financial-aids officer. All scholarships and other awards are made on a year to year basis. Except for scholarships, renewal is based on need, academic achievement,. arid available funds. 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 assist the office in keeping an up-
to-date register of all possible places of employment. students who secure their own employment should also register with the office. A maximum of sixteen hours of work per week, unless otherwise specified, is permitted. Out of concern for the student on academic probation, the privilege of engaging in regular employment will be subject to periodic review. Federal Student Assistance The Basic Educational Opportunity Grant program provides a grant for students who demonstrate that they need financial aid in meeting their college costs. A separate application form (not the college's application form) is required and may be obtained from high school or college officials. A Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is available for students whose families demonstrate extreme financial need. Details are available from the college. The National Direct Student Loan program is also available to eligible students, This federal program exists for the purpose of providing long-term, low-interest loans. Another of the government programs available is the College Work-Study program, conducted by college decision only off-campus. It provides for additional part-time employment opportunities arranged with local non-profit organizations.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES Extracurricular activities are an integral part of college life and contribute to the educational process; participation is encouraged. All activities and the organizations sponsoring them are under the supervision of the faculty's student service council and the studentÂˇoriented collegiate council. Collegiate Council The collegiate council, whose membership is student elected, exists to serve the best interests of the college and its campus family. It meets regularly to discharge this responsibility and to plan student activities. Student Union Sociability and entertainment keynote the student union. The Joust-about (a game rooml.lounges, offices for student organizations, the Round Table (a snack shop), and a post office are housed in this facility. A student union board sponsors recreational activities in the union and governs its general operations.
Student Organizations Music activities are many and varied. The Marluts and Aeolians, singing groups for men and women, respectively, under student direction, concentrate on secular music, supplementing the curricular choral program. The band program includes the selective Concert Band Ensemble, the Symphonic Concert Band, a pep band, and other smaller instrumental ensembles. The college has excellent facilities for theatrical productions. Plays and musicals are staged by the drama club. A drama group which gears its programs to an elementary school audience, the Children's Theater, is an organization whose objectives are especially relevant for prospective teachers. Participation on the forensics team furnishes experience in public speaking. This student organization engages in interscholastic debate in the Twin Cities Debate League. Representing the school through its publications is the privilege of those working on the D.M.L.C. Messenger, the college paper. Journalistic skills of another kind are developed by working on the Excelsior, the college annual. Student organizations which provide for a wide range of interests have been organized for students with special interests, skills, and abilities. Funds collected by the treasurers of all student organizations are deposited in the business office for safe keeping and proper accounting.
Athletics A comprehensive program of athletics, intramural and interscholastic, is offered both men and women. The intramural program involves basketball, softball, volleyball, badminton, tennis, horseshoes, shuffleboard, and archery. The women compete interscholastically in volleyball, basketball, and softball with colleges and universities which are members of the Minnesota Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. The college also holds membership in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. Men's interscholastic sports include football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, and golf. The college competes in the Upper Mid-West Football Conference and the Mississippi River Collegiate Conference. It is also a member of the National Little College Athletic Association.
