Discussion of the College's rules, regulations, data, and fees

A list of the students and their hometowns for the year 1850.  Many of these students may have just been upgrading their knowledge, or dropped out after taking a number of courses.  But, most likely the majority were 'refreshing' or expanding their limited knowledge.  The number of students registered for a current year is huge compared to how may actually graduated in previous years.  Since the admission requirements and the curriculum was only two years, it might have been a case of many attended, but few succeeded.
