Experiment stations are now maintained at State College in agriculture, engineering and mining, and the investigational work is being constantly published in the form of bulletins.
A Summer Session for Teachers was established in 1910 and the summer enrollment for 1921 was almost 2,000. Many special courses are given during the summer. such as a two-weeks' course for school directors; a course for Continuation School Teachers ; etc.
The college property, embracing about 1800 acres of land and 50 buildings, is valued at $3,674,780. About 200 acres are appropriated for campus purposes and the remainder devoted to agricultural experiments and the maintenance of college livestock; this stock is also used for experimental purposes.
The principal buildings erected by appropriations made by the State Legislature are: The Engineering Buildings; the Agricultural Buildings; the Chemistry Buildicgs; the Mining Buildings; the Liberal Arts Buildings; the Home Economics Building; and the Armory. From private benefactions have been constructed the Carnegie Library and the Schwab Auditorium.
An intercollegiate athletic field of 18 acres and an intra-mural athletic field of 80 acres, supply unusual play-ground facilities and under the mass athletic system in vogue at the college, almost every student takes part in some form of athletic exercise.

STATE FOREST ACADEMY, MONT ALTO, FRANKLIN COUNTY.
Professor of Biology-Coleman J. Harris, A. M., M. S.
The Pennsylvania State Forest Academy was founded by Dr. J. T. Rothrock. the first Commissioner of Forestry, in response to a need for the preparation of fcresters to administer the State Forests. It was established under the provisions of the Act of May 13, 1903, P. L. 373, and is administered by the Department of Forestry. Three classes of Students are enrolled, (1) scholarship, (2) Federal rocational, (3) non-scholarship. Scholarships are open to residents of Pennsylvania between the ages of 17 and 25 years who pass a competitive examination, held annually. Facilities permitting, ex-servce men under the jurisdiction of the Federal Board for Vocational Education and non-scholarship students who meet the necessary qualifications for entrance are accepted. The instruction of Federal Vocational and non-scholarship students is without expense to the State. In 1921, 9 echolarship students, 11 ex-service men, and 6 non-scholarship students were accepted. The enrollment by classes is (December 31, 1921):
Class of 1922–3 year course
Students at graduation receive the degree of Bachelor of Forestry.
In order to meet the increasing requirements of the profession, the curriculum at the Academy was revised, effective September, 1920, in accordance with the recommendation of a committee on forest education appointed by the State Forest Commission. The change included the adoption of a four-year course instead of a three-year course.
In addition to the instructional work at the Academy, the District Forester and his assistants administer approximately 22,000 acres of State Forest land in the Mont Alto District, and the Department nursery at that point. This plan affords an unexcelled opportunity for the students to acquire practical knowledge of forest work.
The appropriation for the Academy for the biennial period 1921-1923 was $40,000.00
