The records show that more than 27,000 different stud()nts have been enrolled in that time. Every summer, students enroll from practically every county in Nebraska. Many of these students come through the influence of former graduates ; others follow in the traveled paths of their parent s who a ttended Old Peru in the pioneer day.:;; other students come because they are inspired by the high ideals and professional equipment of the Peru faculty, as well as by the varied and well selected bourses of study which the test of time and experience ave proYed to be of highest merit; while other students will be tho se who have formerly been enrolled at Peru and, perhaps, have graduated but yet long fhr the inspiration of the forest-clad hills, the kindly 8 ~d ~ of nature's oaks, the welcome of th e great old bulldmgs, and last but not least, the cordial gr eeting 0 f faculty an d townspeople, ever the true friends of a11 the students.



DIRECTION OF PERU 'S GROWTH The unmistakable tendency in thr direction of ra ising standards for the qualifications of teacllns in Nrbraska has resulted in a heavy increase in attrndance of students in the advanced clasFes. P eru recog-n izing this general tendency in the state has sought b:-· every possible means to offer a grrater variet:-· of collegiate courses such as will he best fitted to meet th e needs of present-da~v demands upon Nebra:o:ka 's teachers.

PURPOSE OF THE NORMAL SCHOOL Th e purpose of the Peru State N onnal School is the training of teachers for efficient service in all phases of public school \YOrk. Th e trained teacher is repidly displacing the untrain ed teacher . Practically all progressive city schools and many of the rural schools arr already demanding that their teachers lm,·e profeFsional training secured in a school that deYotes its whole energies to tlte preparation of teachers. Modern ten dencies to ward thr " <liYision of labor" arc mak ing it necessary that certain school subjects be sup<>rYiscd b_,. teaeltrrs who have reeeiv ed special trainin£?," in that parti cular f ield of work. Pe rn being in snell elose touch ,,·ith the 1mblic ~ c·ltool is most srnsitive to tlw needs of these schools ; hc'J tee hrr effort to me<'t puhlie :;:cltool <lrmands b: · fnrni s hin\.\· special suywnisors to fill this <" la ss of pos ition. It if" Iter aim not onl.'· to prepa re tc•acltl'r s for the acad<'mic public school position but alf'o to prepare sn]H'nisors for kin<l ergartcn , home ceonomie s, public school art, public school mnsie, manual train ing, hnsinrFs and commerce, agriculture, and the r ural schools. LOCATION AND ENVIRONMENT Prrn is located on one of the most beautiful spots m ti t<' 11est. Its \\~ oo decl hills and ·magnificent campus coverC'd with t he giant oaks, make a cool ~hade that attra cts teachers to Peru from ever~· part of th e tate.

sta tc norma l was locat ed in the village of Peru by the fir::::t X eb r aska state legislature in the year 1867. Already plans arc well ~nd er way for a fitting celebration of i ts golden anmversary. Peru is the home of a moral cultured people. It has en:r been h er boast that no saloon s or otlter hannb of · ,·icc arc tolerated here.

SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE 1916 SUMMER SESSION The fo llowing brief statements indicate some of the special adnmtages that will be found by the different group s of students \Yho \Yill enroll in the 1916 summer session. (~cc the la st t en or twelve pages of this bull etin for a complete lis t of subj ects offered) . DEGREE STUDENTS: In preparing the summer school <·mTic ulum, more attention than ever before has been ginn to such courses as would be of special benefit to forme r graduates and other students who wish to do nchanced \YOrk leading toward the <j.egree Bachelor of Ed ucation. Attention of graduates and adva n<·<·cl :-inden ts is called to the following points: . a.

college in the state and its teachers are academic ll as well prepared. a y f. Over four hundred students of collegiate ra k are now in attendance at Peru. It is pr obable thn this exceeds the number found in any other colleo-e ~t the state. o 1n g. Peru offers such a variety of collegiate cours that if a high school graduate were to under take ~0 com1?lete all of them, fifteen and a half years would be reqmred. h. The extent and yaricty of electives give the drgree students a ,-ide range of subjects from which to choose their major and minor subj ects.

RULES OF CONDUCT Th e P eru State :Kormal School has very few fo rmal rules concerning th e conduct of its students.

In no ca se will a young lady be permitted to entertain gentlemen in her r oom. 0 Young men and youn g women may not occupy room s on the same floor. 3. Irregularities on the part of students must not be permitted. Those k ee ping rooming houses will notify th r office of Rny indi scretions. 4.

It is due to Peru'S



adh erence to these principles in the past that she enjoys the confidence and esteem of hundreds of N ebraska 's strongest school superintendents and boards of education.
