Every student enrolled in the forestry course at Iowa State College has an opportunity at the end of his freshman year to realize the true significance of the College motto “Science with Practice.” This opportunity is provided in the way of a twelve weeks’ summer camp located in some good forest region of the United States. The forestry department at Iowa State is unique among the departments of the College in requiring this practical experience before granting a degree; and its effect upon the resulting efficiency of its graduats is unquestion. Eighteen hours of college credit are allowed, apportioned as follows: Camp technique, 3 hours; lumbering, 5 hours; forest mensuration, 5 hours; and field silviculture, 5 hours.
