HISTORICAL HERITAGE 

From the opening of its doors in 1912 as a normal school for training teachers to its present status as one of 
Tennessee's two comprehensive universities, Memphis State has been thrust forward by the growth of Memphis and 
the Mid-South. A town oriented to a rural economy and culture in 1900 grew into a large urban and commercial 
center by mid-century, and the city's public institution of higher learning experienced comparable growth. 

The normal school grew from a few hundred students (1912-1925), to a teachers' college with a better staff and 
an enrollment of up to a thousand (1925-1941), then to a state college with an expanded curriculum in liberal arts, 
business and graduate education for three to four thousand students (1941-1957), until the institution achieved university 
status in 1957. 

It was not an easy struggle. As the city of Memphis grew and prospered, the demand for a completely developed 
public university grew. Finally, legislators and board members agreed about Memphis State's role and approved the 
change urged so forcefully by concerned local citizens, several presidents, alumni and faculty members. 

The metropolitan requirements for more highly trained university graduates have, of necessity, caused Memphis 
State to expand all its offerings in arts and sciences, business, the fine arts, education, engineering and technology, 
law, and several special professional fields. More than 75 percent of the full-time faculty have earned the highest 
possible degree in their fields. 

As enrollment settles in the 20,000 range, Memphis State is committed to developing programs of the highest 
quality, for only through such a commitment will it be a standard of quality in higher education for the citizens of 
the State of Tennessee. Every Memphis State student is expected, upon graduation, to be able to compete effectively 
with his or her counterparts from any other respected university in the nation. 



// this mind 

reaches out for all 

the learning of the past and all 

the great dreams of the future, 

feed it that upon which 

it will grow .... 



John Trotwood Moore, 1922 



ACADEMIC DRESS 



The follou.'ing information is to help our visitors identify the costumes seen in the commencement procession. 

Academic dress originated at universities in the Middle Ages when a warm gown and hood were necessary in unheated buildings. 
For centuries these gowns distinguished students from their fellow citizens; sometimes this distinction in dress symbolized unfortunate 
controversies between "town and gown". The European habit of using academic robes came to this country in the eighteenth century 
with the founding of what is now Columbia University. In 1895 American universities and colleges standardized their styles of academic 
costumes, and this system, with occasional modifications, is still in force. Today the various colors, trimmings, and patterns of gown, 
hood, and cap are all traditional and symbolize both the degree and field of learning. 

GOWNS: American academic gowns are usually of black material, and their pattern varies with the degree held. The bachelor gowns 
are relatively simple in design with a closed front and long, pointed, open sleeves. Master's gowns have an open front with long, 
closed sleeves, the arms extending through a slit at the elbow, giving the appearance of short sleeves. Doctoral gowns are the most 
elaborate with velvet panels down the open front and three velvet bars on the bell-shaped sleeves. 

HOODS: The hoods, differing in length for the three degrees (bachelor's, master's, and doctor's), are lined with the colors of the 
institution that granted the degree. Hoods are also trimmed with the color that heralds the major field of learning. 

CAPS: A square mortarboard is the approved headgear. The tassel, fastened to the middle point of the top of the cap, is black or 
the color appropriate to the subject; it may be gold if the holder has a doctor's degree. Memphis State University has adopted the 
practice of having candidates for the bachelor degree to wear the tassels on the right front side before degrees are conferred and 
to shift them to the left at the moment when the degrees are awarded to them. 

In the last few years many universities have decided to return to a distinctive gown design. For instance, Columbia's is now slate 
gray, Rochester's a dandelion yellow, Northwestern's is purple. The doctoral gown, with facing of black velvet, now has sleeve bands 
in the color of the wearer's discipline. Some have replaced the mortarboard with a soft velvet tam with a gold tassel. 

Following is a list of the hood and tassel colors that represent several categories of learning. 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White Home Economics Maroon 

Audiology & Speech Pathology Dark Blue Journalism Crimson 

City & Regional Planning Scarlet Red Law Purple 

Commerce, Accountancy, Business Sapphire Blue Music Pink 

Communication Arts Silver Gray Nursing = Apricot 

Economics Copper Physical Education Sage Green 

Education Light Blue Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Engineering Orange Science Golden Yellow 

Fine Arts Brown Social Work Citron 

All hoods are edged with the above colors. These same colors may be used for the facing and sleeve bars of doctoral gowns and 
tassels on bachelors' and masters' caps. 

The lining of the hood indicates the university granting the degree — for Memphis State University, blue and gray. Among other 
institutional colors represented at this commencement are those for Arkansas, red and white; Chicago, maroon; Columbia, light blue 
and white chevron; Duke, royal blue with white chevron; Emory, navy blue with gold chevron; Harvard, crimson; Illinois, navy blue 
with two orange chevrons; University of Iowa, old gold; Kansas, navy blue with cardinal chevron; Northwestern, purple with gold 
chevrons; Ohio State, scarlet with silver gray chevron; Rice, silver above blue; Texas, white above orange; Vanderbilt, black and gold; 
Wisconsin, bright red; Yale, royal blue.

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 



From modest beginnings in the 1920's, the Memphis State University National Alumni Association (NAA) has grown into a 
nationwide organization representing over 60,000 MSU alumni and friends. The NAA has enjoyed its greatest growth since 1962 
when the Association was first chartered. The NAA moved into the Alumni Center, its beautiful headquarters on the southeast 
edge of the campus, in 1976. 

The Alumni Association is organized to provide aid, assistance and counsel to the University and the cause of education in 
general, and to promote fellowship among its members. As a graduate of MSU, one is automatically a member of the NAA while 
a gift to the Academic Fund makes an alumnus/ na an Active Member of the Association with additional privileges. 

The Alumni Association is governed by an Executive Committee and national Board of Directors selected each year. The Executive 
Committee meets monthly while the entire board meets approximately three times a year. An annual business meeting is held 
on Homecoming Day each fall. 

The Alumni Center administratively is part of the University's Division of Planning and Public Service. The Center has an 
eight person professional and support staff. 

A wide variety of programs and services are offered to MSU Alumni and friends by the NAA. These include local constituent 
alumni chapters and out-of-town "MSU Clubs", the Statewide Network system for alumni volunteers, pre-game "Tiger Uproars" 
and parties, a low-cost insurance program, international travel and trips to Tiger athletic events through the "Travelin Tigers" 
tour program, special alumni-oriented merchandise offerings, reunions, Homecoming, the Distinguished Alumni Awards, the Young 
Alumni Council, the Student Ambassador Board and the official alumni publication. The Columns Alumni Review. 

For further information, contact the Alumni Center at 678-2586. 



UNDERGRADUATE 
CANDIDATES FOR DEGREES 

GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION 

Based on a grading system of "A" as 4.0, three 
designations of graduation iionors are recognized.* 

Summa Cum Laude With Highest Distinction 

Magna Cum Laude With High Distinction 

Cum Laude With Distinction 

GRADUATION WITH HONORS 

With the approval of the University Honors Council, Memphis State University offers several departmental 
honors programs. These programs involve a combination of special honors course work, independent 
study, and usually an honors thesis or project. Students who successfully complete a departmental honors 
program are awarded their degrees with honors in their area of concentration (e.g.. With Honors in 
English). 



''Note: Because of time limitations imposed in preparing this program for commencement, listing for graduation 
with distinction was based on a minimum of forty-five (45) graded semester hours and the grade 
point average as of the term prior to the final semester. Final determination of graduation with 
distinction will be based on a minimum of fifty (50) graded semester hours, including the final 
semester, and on the cumulative grade point average as of graduation. 




THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 

Dean William E. Carpenter, Ph.D. 

The aims and purposes of The College of Arts and Sciences are summarized in these 
words which serve as part of our official statement in the catalog issue of the University 
Bulletin: "The program of liberal studies aims (1) to provide students with a store of factual 
knowledge; (2) to introduce them to varying sets of principles; (3) to stimulate them to 
think about and to evaluate these facts and principles; and (4) to encourage them to order 
their own affairs and those of society with the talent, insight, and discrimination which 
they develop." We have been privileged to pursue these aims with the following students 
who are candidates for the five degrees which we offer:

THE FOGELMAN COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS 

Dean Otis W. Baskin, Ph.D. 

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics offers only one undergraduate degree, 
the Bachelor of Business Administration degree. The goal of the undergraduate program 
of the Fogelman College of Business and Economics is to provide the basic education needed 
to prepare a man or woman to enter the field of business and to move rapidly from an 
entry level position to a managerial level of work. 

We believe the curriculum which best accomplishes this goal consists of four components. 
First, a broad foundation of course work is provided in the liberal arts and sciences. At 
least 40 percent of the work taken by each student in the Fogelman College of Business 
and Economics is in the humanities, the social sciences, the natural and physical sciences, 
communications, and mathematics. 

Second, the curriculum includes a significant amount of study of the economic and legal 

environment of business and introduces each of the major functional fields of business — 

accounting, finance management, and marketing. 

Third, the curriculum provides for a choice of a major by the student. The student is permitted to select a major from 

accounting, economics, finance, risk management and insurance, financial services, real estate, business management, 

management information systems, decision sciences, marketing, sales/marketing, transportation and distribution, or 

international business. Within most areas there is opportunity for the student to select a more specialized area of concentration, 

such as human resource management, advertising, productions operations, office management, and so on. 

Fourth, the Bachelor of Business Administration curriculum offers the opportunity for the selection of free electives. 
Through these electives, the student may select courses particularly suited to his or her own interests, thus providing 
an opportunity for the student to pursue in greater breadth and depth the study of business or related fields.

THE COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION AND FINE ARTS 

Dean Richard R. Ranta, Ph.D. 

The College of Communication and Fine Arts is ultimately focused upon visual and audible 
symbols, whose rational and emotional values it is the mission of the College to create and 
explore. In the belief that perception is largely shaped by experience, the College of Com- 
munication and Fine Arts offers a range of symbolically rendered experiences, both individual 
and collective, in the hope of broadening and sensitizing the perceptions of its students. 

Through its various professional courses of study, it prepares students to work toward 
careers in the fine or applied arts, communication, or the performing arts, whether as 
practicioners, teachers, artists, or consultants. The College offers three degrees by which 
to accomplish its purposes: 



BACHELOR OF ARTS 

Candidates for the oldest of the traditional baccalaureate degrees are students 
who have majored in art history; journalism with concentrations in either 
advertising, broadcast news, public relations, or news editorial; or theatre 
and communication arts with concentrations in broadcasting, communication, 
film and video tape production, film studies, or theatre.

THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 

Dean Nathan L Essex, Ph.D. 

The College of Education pursues six stated goals to help the University achieve its basic 
purpose, the advancement of learning. One of the six goals is highlighted at each 
commencement. This goal is "to provide preparation programs which produce teachers and 
certain other professional personnel sufficient in quantity and competence to help meet the 
needs of the state, region, and nation." 

The several undergraduate preparation programs provided by the College of Education 
lead to three baccalaureate, professional degrees: the Bachelor of Science in Education, the 
Bachelor of Music Education, and the Bachelor of Science in Home Economics. 

Each of the degree programs consists of three basic components. General Education courses 

comprise approximately 45% of each degree program. Professional courses make up from 

25% to 40% of the total, depending upon the particular programs followed. The remaining 

portion is used to develop one or more specializations. 

In addition to their prescribed courses, graduates of the various degree programs are required to meet criteria related 

to their personal and professional fitness for their chosen careers. Field-based laboratory experiences are included in all 

preparation programs in the College. 




BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN EDUCATION 

Candidates for this professional degree have studied in programs covering 
three broad fields: curriculum and instruction, health and physical education, 
and special education. These several teacher education preparation programs 
cover four majors which, in turn, are subdivided into some twenty academic 
teaching endorsements. The College of Education also offers through this 
degree majors in the non-teaching fields of health and safety, recreation 
and park administration, rehabilitation education, and educational services.

THE DEPARTMENT OF NAVAL SCIENCE 

NAVAL ROTC UNIT 
CANDIDATES FOR NAVY COMMISSION 

The Department of Naval Science provides a four-year and two-year program of instruction leading to an undergraduate degree 
and commission as an officer in the regular United States Navy or Marine Corps as well as Naval Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve. 
The program is also known as the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) and is voluntary in that students may withdraw 
from the program at any time during the freshman year. At the start of the sophomore year, scholarship students enter into 
an agreement with the Department of the Navy that specifies active duty service after college work is completed. These programs 
are open to men and women. 

The four year program is geared to students who enter the NROTC program as freshmen. Students are introduced to the field 
of naval science which encompasses a broad variety of subjects ranging from basic seamanship to fleet operations. Topics covered 
during the first half of the four year program include principles of naval ships systems, naval weaponry, seapower, and maritime 
affairs. The second half (junior and senior years) is devoted to navigation and naval operations, naval leadership and management, 
and, for Marine Option Students, amphibious warfare and a study of warfare through the ages. Six week summer training cruises 
are also part of the naval science program. While participating in summer training, students receive approximately one half the 
monetary compensation of an Ensign and are provided room, board, medical care and travel to and from training. 

The two-year program is offered to upper level students only. Students apply for enrollment through the Professor of Naval 
Science before the spring semester of their sophomore year. Following acceptance, students attend the six-week Naval Science Institute 
in Newport, Rhode Island, during the summer between the sophomore and junior years. Upon return to campus, students are 
enrolled in the NROTC program and participate as regular scholarship students. 

Upon graduation and completion of the Navy ROTC Program, midshipmen are commissioned as Ensigns in the United States 
Navy or Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps.

NATIONAL ANTHEM 

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light 
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming, 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight 
O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? 



ALMA MATER 

Stand firm, O Alma Mater, 
Through all the years to come; 
In days of youth and beauty 
Thy halls have been our home. 
In time of preparation 
Great lessons didst thou teach 
Til now, O Alma Mater, 
The stars we'll strive to reach.

Banners representing Memphis State's nine colleges and schools were 
unfurled for the first time at the 1989 spring convocation of the 77th 
commencement. The banners, which feature symbolic images, add to the 
pageantry of official University ceremonies.
