"We may live without poetry, music or art,
We may live without conscience and live without heart.
We may live without friends; we may live without books
But civilized man cannot live without cooks."

The aim of this department is to impart to the students correct methods of Domestic Science. There are two courses, one of two years and the other of four years.
The first year of each course is devoted largely to practical work. The remaining time of each course is divided into four parts, the first being given over to advanced practical work; the second, to general knowledge of household economics; the third, to laundry work, and the fourth, to physiology and emergencies.
The aim in this work is not only to make practical cooks and housekeepers, but to train the students as teachers, who, going forth into the world, will do much towards improving the surroundings of those with whom they come in contact.
Notice: If there be any doubt in the public mind as to our ability to prepare and serve a most toothsome meal, we refer with pride to the following persons, who have been entertained in the Cooking Department: 

Supt. A. T. Stuart, Asst. Supt. W. S. Montgomery, Asst. Supt. Ida Gilbert Myers, Director and Mrs. Chamberlain, Gen. and Mrs. Geo. Harries, Mrs. Bettie G. Francis, Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Whitehead, Supervising Principals Brown, Clark and Nalle, Misses Harriet E. Gibbs, Carrie Syphax, Mildred E. Gibbs, Victoria Thompkins, Justice, R. H. Terrell.
