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 huncred 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.
THE DORMITORY. The dormitory recently erected by the munificence of the State accommodates about ninety students. The rooms are sufficiently large to furnish quarters for two students each, and are well lighted and ventilated. The whole building is heated by the hot water system. It consists of two wings entirely separated from each other; the north wing is for women, the south one for men. Each wing has a reception room, where students may receive their visitors.
The price of board in the dormitory is two dollars and fifty cents per week; this includes heat and light. Students must furnish their own towels and bed clothes. The rooms are furnished with a table, chairs, and two single beds.
COURSES OF INSTRUCTION. The Classical Course - This course requires four years of Latin and four of Greek. In accordance with the recommendation of the famous “Committee of Ten” on secondary education, Greek is not begun until the second preparatory year. In the Junior year, Greek is required and Latin elective, and in the Senior year, both languages are elective.
The Scientific Course. - Students following this course without elections will have four years of Latin and three years of French or German. The student has an option between French and German.
The Literary Course.-- This course gives four years of Latin and a year of Anglo-Saxon. It omits all mathematics after the second preparatory year, and will be found very rich in English Literature.
The English Course.- In accordance with a resolution of the Board of Regents, a four years' English course has been adopted. Two years of elective work have been added to this course by the Faculty, and upon completing the whole six years a student will be entitled to the degree of Bachelor of English.
