Recognizing the importance of the care and culture of the human body, the school has made provision for giving the students a chance to do physical culture work. Gymnasium apparatus of modern type has been furnished; and through the efforts of the Athletic Association, outdoor sports, basket-ball, base-ball, tennis, and croquet have been provided for.
The aim of this department is to keep in good form the bodies of the students already healthy and strong, and to correct any defeats in the bodies of students having injurious habits or tendencies. To accomplish these results, proper gymnasium exercises and out-door games under the direction of a well qualified instructor are given.
