might take. All the details were left for the demands 
of the neighborhood to determine, and each department 
has grown from a discovery made through natural and 
reciprocal social relations. 
grew thus from an informal origin. The first class met 
as guests of the residents. As the classes became larger 
and more numerous, and the object of the newcomers 
more definitely that of acquisition of some special knowl- 
edge, the informality of the social relation was necessa- 
rily less ; but the prevailing attitude toward the house 
of the two hundred and fifty students now enrolled is 
that of guests as well as students. Many new students, 
attracted and refreshed by the social atmosphere, come 
into the classes who would not be likely to undertake 
any course of study at an evening high school, or any 
school within their reach. These students, the larger 
proportion of whom are young women, represent a great 
variety of occupations. Among them are teachers in 
the public schools, employees of factories and shops, 
typewriters and cashiers. The College Extension Course 
aims not to duplicate, but to supplement, the advantages 
offered by evening high schools and business colleges. 
Hence in these classes the emphasis is laid upon the 
humanities, and no attempt is made to supply means 
for earning a livelihood. The most popular and con- 
tinuous courses have been in literature, languages, music, 
art, history, mathematics, and drawing. The saving 
grace of all good things, and the developing power of 
the love of them, have been proved to the satisfaction 
of the residents of Hull-House. A prospectus of the 
College Extension classes is published at the beginning 
of each term for ten weeks.
