Beginning with the year 1941-42, the freshmen entering Grinnell College found a very different educational program from that of the last few years. The new program included the introduction of the four-course plan. Under this plan all courses meet four times a week and give four hours credit, and nearly all students carry four courses each semester. In addition, each freshman takes an orientation course, which last year carried one hour credit, and this year is compulsory but without credit.
