N THE YEAR 1850, AN INSTITUTION WAS
founded in the city of Rochester that was destined to
become one of the most important contributors to
American education a century later. It was fated to
become a university with a total enrollment of more
than eight thousand full-time and part-time students in
its various schools and colleges, including a College of
Arts and Science for men and women, an unexcelled
School of Music, an equally distinguished School of
Medicine and Dentistry, a Graduate School, and
The history of the University of Rochester is a pageant
of people and progress. It bears the imprint of leaders
in education, industry, and social serviceg it carries the
names of men and women recognized for their fore-
sight-Anderson, Hill, Morey, Rhees, Eastman, and
Today that university stands high in its field, proud
of its attainments in both teaching and research. Its
infancy is a thing of the past, and yet Rochester con-
tinues to grow. Each day will see another advance,
great or small, toward a goal which she ever sets just
beyond her reach.
And grow it must, for there are many present policies
seriously questioned. Some believe that too much time
has been spent teaching the superior student rather
than the average undergraduate. There has perhaps
been a lack of emphasis on those things outside the
curricular assignment, and too small an amount of
support, both financial on the part of the school and
personal on the part of the students, is given to those
organizations through which the university is repre-
sented to the public.
We have faith that the changes will be made, and
we know that only through the critical attitude which
the university holds toward itself can it continue to
progress. The future will bring new problems-fewer
large donations so necessary to a private university,
nationwide attempts to socialize education as related
fields, and many others. But we are confident that
Rochester will gain in strength and that the next cen-
tury will be marked by even greater advances.
