GENERAL INFORMATION. The university of Oregon, by an act of the State legislature, was founded and located at Eugene in 1872, and it was opened for the reception of students and giving instruction in 1876.
The management of its affairs is placed in a board of regents, appointed for a term of twelve years by the Governor of the State and confirmed by the State senate. The board of regents confers such degrees and grants such diplomas as other universities are wont to confer and grant.
The permanent endowment of the university consists of eighty thousand dollars, realized from the sale of the land granted to the State by the general government for the purpose of establishing a university, and a fund of fifty thousand dollars generously donated the university by Mr. Henry Villard, and an annual income from the State of one-seventh of a mill on all taxable property.
LOCATION. The university is located at Eugene, Lane county, Oregon, one hundred and twenty miles south of Portland, on the Oregon & California Railroad. Eugene is the county seat of Lane county, has four thousand inhabitants, and is situated amidst scenery of much natural beauty. The university campus lies southeast of Eugene, about one mile from the city postoffice, and contains some eighteen acres of land.
BUILDINGS. The university has on its campus three brick buildings. One was erected in part by the citizens of Lane county and finished by the State. It is one hundred and fifty feet long, fifty-four feet wide, and three stories high, besides the basement. The second building, named by the regents “Villard Hall,"' is made of brick, and has a concrete finish on the outside. It is one hundred and fifteen feet in length, sixty-nine feet wide, and two stories high above the basement. The third brick building was erected by the regents in 1889, at a cost of about four thousand five hundred dollars, for a gymnasium. It contains the most approved apparatus for exercise.
A brick observatory, on an eminence convenient to the university, has been erected by the regents at a cost of about four thousand dollars.
LIBRARY. The university library occupies a room in Villard Hall, and contains at present about three thousand volumes. A part of the books was bought at a cost of one thousand dollars by Mr. Henry Villard. Another part has since been bought, at a cost of seven hundred dollars, out of the income of the Villard endowment fund. The annual sum coming from the Villard fund for the purchase of books for the library is four hundred dollars. This money is now spent in buying books of reference for the use of the university.
Through the influence of Hon J. N. Dolph, Oregon's United States Senator, the library has been made the depository of all documents published by the general government at Washington. In the library room may also be found a large number of magazines, reviews and other periodicals published in England and America. There is no charge for the use of all these books and periodicals.
Much might be done toward preparing this university for the place it ought to and must fill in the future growth of the intellectual power of our State, if some man or men would out of their abundance give the university a library endowment fund.
The university has about $2,000 worth of mathematical instruments. Students in surveying and engineering, by means of the solar compass and engineers' transit, can become acquainted with practical field work in their department, and by means of the sextant and other instruments they can learn the methods of finding the latitude and longitude of any place.
Students in astronomy will have access for observatory practice to the sidereal clock, the 42-inch astronomical transit, and the sextant, and with these instruments will be able to find the latitude and longitude, as well as the exact solar time, of the university building by the methods used by astronomers and navigators.
The apparatus belonging to the department of physics and chemistry has cost the university more than $3,000, and though such a collection of instruments can never be complete, it affords greater facilities for class illustrations than can be found elsewhere in the “Great Northwest.”
The departments of geology, mineralogy and natural history are provided with large and valuable collections to illustrate their teachings. Professor Condon's cabinet is already widely known on this coast, and is justly noted for its wonderful record of Oregon's former bistory.
To this collection large additions of Eastern and foreign minerals are yearly made, and the whole is freely used in illustrating truth to the classes taught in these department.
MUSEUM. People in all parts of the State are respectfully requested to aid in building up the museum by sending specimens that are interesting and instructive.
The articles received will be classified, labeled with the names of the contributors, and carefully preserved.
An examination of new students is made in order to ascertain their scholarships, and assign them to the classes for which they are qualified. An examination of all students is also made at the end of each term for the purpose of ascertaining their progress and deciding what students shall graduate, or be promoted to higher classes.
COURSES OF INSTRUCTION.
1.-THE CLASSICAL COURSE.
This course affords opportunity for a careful study of the Latin and Greek languages, rich in the accumulated wisdom of the most intellectual nations in the past history of our race. It also gives the student access to much of the garnered intellectual wealth of our own English tongue.
II.-THE SCIENTIFIC COURSE.
This course differs from the preceding, in giving special attention to the French or German languages, instead of the Greek, and in giving a wider range to the study of mathematics and some of the physical sciences.
III.-THE LITERARY COURSE.
This course differs from the preceding courses, in giving an opportunity for the study of the English and Anglo-Saxon languages, in place of the Greek of the classical, or the French or German of the scientific course, and is an attempt to meet the wants of those who think that a higher discipline of the mind can be obtained from the study of the English language than from the study of Greek, German, or French.
Each of these three courses extends through four years' of study, and leads to the same degree of bachelor of arts.
