Tips for first-year students from the 1914-15 student handbook:
– Ask questions. It is evidence you are alive and awake.
– Eat at the Commons if possible. It furthers the democratic spirit of the college.
– Attend at least part of your classes. Knowledge obtained from them will be good for you as well as help you.
– Watch the bulletin boards.
– A man is known by the company he keeps out of.
– Don’t be noisy in the library. Others around you may wish to sleep.
– Be proficient in your studies.
– Don’t be a bookworm. Worms are good for nothing but bait. Enter into outside activities.
– Make use of the mountains. While probably not put there just for you, they might as well be used as to stand idle.
