The gains of the earlier years were now consolidated, and plans laid for future expansion. President Huntington also successfullyiopposed a movement to shorten the four years of study required for the baccalaureate degree. Under Lemuel Herbert Murlin, who was President from 1911 to 1925, the Uni- versity expanded rapidly. The College of Business Administration, the School of Education, the School of Religious and Social Service Qnow the School of Religious and Social Workj, the College of Secretarial Science fnow the College of Practical Arts and Lettersj, and the Summer Session were inaugurated under his administra- tion.
