A Glimpse of Life at Northwestern.
The following was received by
one of the editors of the DAILY,
from a former student of the U. of
M. As it may be of interest to our
readers, we publish it: "1 You have
probably heard of the new order of
things that has been introduced here
under Dr. Roger's supervision.
low he has changed the curriculum
and introduced an elective course
similar to that of the eastern col-
leges, and in fact has given a new
and broader field of knowledge to
the students. The whole atmos-
phere is changed. The students
feel this and wishing to express their
gratitude to their president, Dr.
Rogers, they gave him a grand re-
ception in Chicago, on the evening
of Nov. 13, at the Grand Pacific
hotel. There were about a thousand
guests present, representing the diff-
erent departments both in the city
and at Evanston. Perhaps the most
pleasing feature of the reception;
doubtless the most Uleasing at any
rate to the gentlemen, was the
charming presence of the Fem. Seni.
(Woman's College) girls under es-
cort or chaperons. The beauty,
quiet dignity, womanly grace and
sweetness of Evanston girls, secures
their position in the first society.
Here a girl is not judged by her
wealth, her dress,or even her brains,
but by her own sweet disposition as
shown by her social influence. I
might mention Miss Fannie Alabas-
ter, known to many of the residents
of Ann Arbor, as perhaps the fair-
est of the fair. 't'here were present
besides Dr. and Mrs. Rogers, the
members of the faculty, and trus-
tees of the university, many men of
rank and position in Chicago, and
Miss Emily Huntington Miller, the
new dean of the Woman's College.
There was nusic,supper and dancing.
Coming home on the train the air
was made melodious with college
songs, to the discomfiture of the in-
different passengers. There are
more advantages for a girl to de-
velop into true womanhood where
there is special provision made for
her as here: At Northwestern she
is not dubbed co-ed. The fraternity
element is strong, so strong that the
college is second to the faternity.
