Because of limitation in space, some thing may be om itted from the ca ta log, information conce rning which can r eadily be obtained by writing to the Pres iden t or to the Registrar at Peru, Nebraska. The chief purpose of the institution is edu cating and t r aining teacher s for the public schools . Young people w.ho have n ot fully decided on a life vocation may complete the academic work g enerally a ccepted for t he freshman and sophomore years of any liberal arts college. The Bachelor of Arts degree can only be conferred on those who have completed the four year course, which includes the i¡equired professional preparation for teach ing. The institution is or ganized to include every phase of public school work whether rural or grades, the ungraded one-room school, the kindergarten, the elementary graded school, the junior high, the senior demonstration high school, and the teachers college. Each unit represents a rea l school s ituation with th e edu cation of the child and the training of the teach er as primary and coordi na te objects .

HISTORY. In 1867, the same year that Nebras ka became a s tate, the legislature provided for the es tablishment of a tra ining school fo r t eachers at Peru . It was the fir s t state normal sc hool wes t of the Mississippi River. For over fifty years, it has made an enviable r ecord of achievement in educational affair s . Its fac ulty has ever been noted fo r professional and progressive ideal s and its stude nts and graduates have done much to shape the ed ucational deve lopment no t alone of Nebraska, but of the e nt ire nation. For thirty-eight year s , Peru was t he only school of its kin d in Nebraska. As the resources of the state we re develop ed and all its territory became settled th e legis lature fo und it wi e to carry the work of teacher training to other parts of the state. It auth or ized the Board of Education having charge of the P eru school to esta blish another in 1905, and the Board located it at Kearn ey. Within a few year s, the legislature provided for two add itional sc hools and the Board of Education establis hed one at Wayne and t he oth er at Chadron. Each of the four sch ool_s is de ve loping a long the sa me lines and each is working out t h e s ame ideals that have g uid ed t he wor k at P eru for the past fifty-fiv e yea rs. The degrees, Bachelor of Arts in Edu ca tion and Bache lor of Education, had been granted by t he in s tit ut ion previous to 1921, but at



. time t he State Legi slature changed the State Normal Schools to this Collea-es and authorized them to offer a four year college Teachers "' ' . n:ferrin"" the degree Bachelor of Arts as the State Urnvercourse, co "' sity does.

PERSONAL WORK. When a student first enters college from high school he is confronted ¡with many perplexing problem s. The greatest of t hese is that of learning to adjust himself to new situations in college life. In his high school career he was living at home and his work was under ~irect supervision. In college he is away from home and has very httle if any direct supervision. His pr oblem of re-adjustment is a real one, for he is changing from home guidance to self guidance and from school super vision to self supervision. Problems of the proper balance between study and r ecreation; 'bhen and how to study ; college friendships; selection of studies and t. e for~ation of a desirable schedule; the selection of the most de~!rab)e field of education in which to specialize; social life; participaion m the traditions and customs that make up school spirit, all conf~~nt the student durin g his first year in college. The manner in which JU~tments ar e made to these problems determines the success and inaplptmes~ of the student in college life, and to a large extent at least, a er life. su The. work of the personnel committee is to help students make ab~f ad~ustments. The committee first collects data concerning the da~~ty, mtere~ts , and previous experiences of the student. With such them as a guide, members of the committee help students to adjust indi/J1vls to college life. This is done through class work, group and ua conf erences, and thr ough special convocations. I>ersonew studen~s should feel free to consult with members of the sidered~el committee. Their problems will be sympathetically con-

Correspondence Courses and Study Center

1926- 1927


OCTOBER, 1926 No. 3 Entered as < second-class matter Jul y, 1915, at the Post Office of Peru Ne bra k ' s a, und er the act of August 24 , 1912.


EXTENSION COURSES The purpose of Extens ion courses, whether Correspondence or Study Center, is to extend the services of the State Teach ers College to every properl y qualifi ed per son who can not attend an educational in stitution for the time being, but who wi shes to pursue systematic study un? er competent direction a nd for college credit witl, a view of attendmg College later. \ In addition to its cou r ses in resid ence, one of th e most valuable services that the T eacher s College can rend er is an opportunity for teac her s in service to continu e their edu cation and to receive .id and inspiration in thei r dail y work. Teacher s are urged to avail them~elves of every such adv a n tage that t his sta te institution , which is thei r in stituti on, has to offer th em. I.


Corr esponde nce co urses are offered not only for college cred it, but also fo r mature s tudents who nee d to earn College entra nce credi ts . These courses have an advantage over study ce nter courses in t wo respects; first, the individual can tak e what he needs, and second, he can carr y th e work for ward as rapidl y as he is abl e. Because of these two advan tages, corre spondence courses have grown in favo r duri ng the past few years. Inasmu ch as sixteen hours earned 111 abs entia may be applied toward a degree or a two year dip loma, corresponde nce work is appea ling s trongly both to graduates of the two year college course who wi sh to take work toward a degree while teaching, and to those students who were compell ed lo leach before completin g th e t wo year co urse. No studen t, h owe ver, sho uld attempt to take all the wo rk he needs by. stud y cen ter and c~rr espo n.d e n ce, eve n if thal were p~ss 1 b.~~ as ~Y. dom g so he loses the m sp1rat10n that com es from contad ~~ a virile studen t body and a sympathetic a nd enthusiastic fac u y. T his contact brings about a culture, refinement, and poise th at residen t attenda nce only ca n give. 1
