The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1904

[Growth of attendance at Victoria College]

Victoria College is in its sixth year, and its growth has been steady in all departments. As far as numbers are concerned the figures for the different years speak for themselves:—
Year 1899 1900 1901 1902 1903 1904
No. of Students 115 136 144 167 191 195
No. Matriculated Students 75 97 111 145 149 155
No. Exempted Students 9 34 51 39 59
The number of candidates for the April, June, November, December, and January Examinations 1903—1901 in each University District is full of promise for Victoria College:—
1902 1903
Auckland College District 231 251
Victoria College District 523 632
Canterbury College District 283 328
University of Otago District 397 438

The degree results year by year show an increase in number and value.

There is another side of College activity of which we have no reason to be ashamed. There are nine Societies and clubs, each of which is alive and healthy, not to mention the "Spike." The Hockey Club puts 33 men and 22 ladies into the field every Saturday, and the football Club 30 men.

Counting reserves College has nearly 100 players representing her each week. We form one of the strongest athletic organizations in Wellington in spirit and in numbers, if not in absolute skill in any one branch.
