NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND MECHANIC ARTS, an institution maintained by the State of North Carolina at West Raleigh for the promotion of scientific agriculture and industrial education. The main courses are in chemistry, civil and electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. There is no arts and science course, the studies being all technical. The State maintains an agricultural experiment station at West Raleigh to co-operate with the college. Both the State and the United States appropriate money for the support of the institution. The grounds and buildings, including a large farm property, are valued at about $1,100,000, while the total enrolment in 1915 was 702.
