Excerpt from The Freshman and His College: A College Manual This book was prepared by one who, not many years ago, was a good-for-nothing Freshman. I much lament now, the time and opportunity which I ignorantly and idly wasted that first year in college. I do not think, though, that I was altogether to blame, for at that time I had a very vague conception of the real meaning of a college course. I think that I now know how it was that I made so many mistakes the first year. It is in the light of these useful experiences of my own that I am now prompted to make a modest attempt to aid a new generation of Freshmen during their first months in college. For a long time, in common with many other college instructors, I have been much grieved over the needless waste of Freshman life. In many of our larger institutions a considerable percentage of the Freshman class has been sent home during the year; and in every Freshman class there are a good many students who stumble and blunder painfully through the year, and if saved are saved only as by fire. I cannot but think that, as instructors and older college men, we owe it to Freshmen, in some measure at least, to show them the way to the things that are worth while, and to set the signal lights for them along a somewhat perilous route. And surely it must somehow be possible for a boy to learn without enrolling in the school of hard knocks. It seems to me that there is almost no type of wisdom so high as that which, by anticipation, can learn from the faults and follies, from the virtues and successes of others how to choose the right course of action and how to avoid the wrong one.
