Under the SATC program, men could continue in college until the completion of their courses and then enter the armed services as commissioned officers. Male students were sworn into the army and provided with tuition, subsistence, $30 per month, and uniforms. The Hill became a military camp, with guards surrounding the premises. Training was given for the infantry, artillery or machine gunnery, quartermaster, engineer, signal, and chemical corps. Upon completion of the university training, the men were to go to an officers’ training school. The first classes arrived on October 1, 1918, and were little more than well-organized when the armistice was signed on November 11. Following the armistice, students could shift from the SATC without penalty or loss of time to regular curricula. All men were mustered out before December 21, 1918.
