One of the most popular courses on campus for all majors was typing, part of the Secretarial Training Program. Ninety typewriters (Smith, Underwood, Royal, and Remington) were available for students. Students used the touch system and did not watch the keyboard. Novices could usually master the keyboard in one semester, but expert typists were developed in four semesters. At the time, applicants for office positions were often asked to take a typing test, which measured both speed and accuracy, before employment.
