Abstract: Small colleges, which generally speaking are private institutions, rise or fall according as they meet or fail to meet the needs and, in many instances, the wants of the students seeking admission. During the last two decades, to meet these needs, departments of home economics have been introduced into many small colleges. In the beginning these courses were designed to teach homemaking. However, the advances in the science of nutrition emphasized the therapeutic phase of dietetics in college programs. The new positions open to women that naturally arose in the field of food administration gave impetus to courses in food administration. Then a student of institution economics completes her college course, she may do one of three things: she may enter a training course approved by the American Dietetic Association; she may enter a non-approved course; or she may accept a position in institution food administration with no further training.
