Dartmouth College. The Individual and the College Course


In 1955, Dartmouth College inaugurated a new freshman one-semester course, called "The Individual and the College," that was designed to help the students to get more out of their subject-matter courses than before. Prof. Carl D. England was the chairman of the committee in charge of the course. The course met twice a week in Webster Hall and carried one hour of credit toward the bachelor's degree. It was divided into five parts, each specifically designed to brief the student upon definite areas of experiences he was likely to encounter while at Dartmouth. It was compulsory for freshmen.
