The Student in Societ
The Social Side of University of Nebraska Student Life
How Unl Society Knjbya Itself.
University students pretty generally
believe in enjoying themselves, and
dancing is probably tire-favorite amuse
ment. In no other western school is
there so large a number of social
events that have becomo regular fea
tures of the school year. These dances
are of three varities military, class,
and fratrnal. There are Ave annual
military dances scattered throughout
tbt nine months of the school year,
tvrtO each class has its regular dance.
In addition to these, there are nineteen
fraternal organizations that will aver
age at least three parties apiece dur
ing the year, all ending with the Pan
Hellenic the big dance of the season.
As In many other matters. Lincoln
society would be rather dull were It
not for the stimulus given It by the
University. It Is largely tho student
who sets the social pace and, for the
most part, follows it himself.
Soclnl Life from Which the Student
Nebraska draws most of her students
from Nebraska farms and the small
towns scattered throughout the state.
Before coming here the student's social
experience has been more or leBB lim
ited, according to the placo from which
he comes. The farmer's son has prob
ably been accustomed only t& country
debating societies and lyceums. Those
brought up In the towns have had a
better opportunity to mingle In a so
cial way, and consequently they are not
subjected to as great a change.
The Now Life Ho Finds Here.
However, their environment must
necessarily become somewhat different
since they are thrown in contact with
so large a number of young people.
One of three courses Is followed. If
the student so desires he can devoto
his time exclusively to his work, pay
ing no attention to the social advan
tages of the school, or he may join a
literary society, or a fraternity. The
course hctakes will depend upon the
state of development of hlB social ten
dencies. If he adopts the first course he will
spend all his time following his special
line of work. If he Intends being an
engineer, his time will be spent in the
shops, and the number of his acquaint
ances will equal the number of friends
he makes there. If he has any spare
time at the end of the week, he will
probably spend It at the room of one
of his friends, and that will constitute
his social activities. His knowledge
of girls Is extremely limited, and when
he leaves school his education will be
deficient In that very important thing-
The middle position Is occupied by
the members of the literary societies.
Besides extending the circle of a stu
dent's acquaintance these societies give
valuable experience In the art of en
tertaining, and in many ways are more
beneficial In the social line than are
the fraternities. To be a fraternity
man does not mean that you are a so
ciety lion, although it is by fraternity
people that social enterprises are usual
ly advanced. A great many fraternity
men never attend a public dance, or
"go out in society," and in such a case
tne list of their friends is the mem
bership roll of their fraternity. As far
as outside social benefits are concerned,
iney might as well not belong to any
How Social and School Work Harmonize'
A great many students pay no at
tention to society because they believe
the social and Intellectual elements
cannot bo successfully harmonized,
and that to be a good society man
-means to be a poor student, and vice
versa. That is a very wrong impres
sion. While it Is true that few social
leaders ever graduate with a P. B. K.,
many of the students who tako an ac
tive Interest in the social life of tho
University make good all-round stu
dents. It is becoming raoro and more
the tendency to look upon book-lore as
only a part of a person's education.
Experience Is considered half, at least,
and society helps to a largo degree In
giving that experience. A liberal edu
cation Is what Is considered valuable,
and while pursuing your special line of
work, a little time spent in cultivating
your social qualities will not be ill
Bpent. If you are taking a general
course you should consider It a part
oi that course.
As a rule It Is tho student who suc
cessfully combines the two who makes
the greatest success of life. A person
who goes through college with the
Idea of devoting all his time to work
and consequently keeps to himself aE
much as possible, not only misses a
great deal of pleasure during his four
years' stay here, but also finds him
self seriously handicapped when he
starts out in life for himself. This does
not necessarily mean that a student
should attend at least one dance or
party a week. There are many forms
of society, and the man who takes an
active part In the debating club or
literary Borlety, Is perhaps Improving
his time to greater advantage.
Social Tendencies of the University.
Nebraska University society Is rapid
ly assuming the character of the social
life of the eastern schools. It costs
more now to be a "society man," In
the big sense of the word, than It did
In the ea'iller days of the Institution,
Dross affairs are becoming more the
rule and less tho exception, and the
University society man of today has
more requirements to meet than did
Lis predecessor of ten years ago. The
dress suit and cab have long been es
tablished features. The grill room has
lately made -Its presence felt on the
pocket-books of the social sports, and
the opera crusher will soon be here.
Indeed it will be a matter of only a few
years until eastern customs will pre
In Bplte of this fact, there Is little
or no tendency towards snobbishness.
The student waiter, If his personal
ability and character Is up to the
standard, is accepted on the same foot
ing as trie man with a large allowance.
A student may lead tho most foiinal
dance cf the year one night, and the
next evening will seo him "suping" for
eoir.c shew or otherwise amusing him
self while taking in a little money on
the sloe. The true western spirit that
dominates everything in the University
In quite apparent in society, and will
conl'nue so for some time to come.
