The work of the School is planned to illustrate the fundamental laws
underlying the phenomena of life. The undergraduate work is designed to
meet the needs of three classes of students: first, of those who desire a
knowledge of biological phenomena and principles as a proper part of a
liberal education; second, of those who are looking forward to positions as
teachers; and third, of those seeking a broad foundation for subsequent
work in agriculture or in medicine.

A laboratory fee of $5 is charged for each course.

Any course may be withdrawn unless elected by at least four students.
