All students in all courses were required to participate in a one-hour seminar
conducted by President Brooks. Each student had to prepare and read papers on assigned
subjects, and participate in the discussion of the papers of others. Each was criticized on its
subject matter, language, and style by the instructor and the members of the class. The manner
of oral presentation was to be the type suited to scientific societies and before small audiences
rather than the flowery, ornate declamatory style found on the Chatauqua Circuit.
Fraternity Dissolved
. After an auspicious start two years before, forming the third fraternity on
the Clarkson campus, Kappa Epsilon Phi, dissolved.
