B uilding .—Only one wing of the now brick College building has been completed, and thia
is being remodeled and greatly improved this year. It contains three working sionqp of large,
airy and well lighted rooms, used for study and recitation. The old College building adjoining
has been thoroughly ovortawled and eon verted into a pleasant anj commodious chapel.
Apparatus sufficient for ordinary purposes of illustration, is how provided, and additions will
be made from time to time. The Library contains a few volumes ot interest, and new volumes
of value will be addod as fast as the means at our command will allow.
The features of Christian College to which we especially invite attention, as distinctive of our
work aro as follows: ;
C hristian M orality .—The Biblo is read every day and lectures calculated to impress its
morality are given, and with the Bible as a basis, the effort to impress the highest Christian
morality as the guiding principle in the lives of our students. Dogmatism and Sectarianism are
carefully avoided. We'ignore all religious or political divisions, and encourage great freedom of
thought, and aim to stand on that high plane where Protestant or Catholic, Democrat or Re
publican, can meet on one common level.
P ractical E ducation —The great demand of the times is for men of action. An institution
of learning to meet the needs of the people, should not only impart instruction, but along with
the knowledge gained, give students the power to use it to advantage for themselves and others.
The idea of Christian College is, that the finest mental culture and tho greatest benefit may
be obtained by the study of those things that will fit young men and women to at once enter
some pursuit or business, and carry it forward successfully. Instead of those branches that are
simply ornamental, we prefer those that are useful, and we invite comparison and criticism on *
our work. Our aim is to graduate young men and women so that they may at once enter upon
the pursuits "of life.
. M athematics .—The Course of Study in this department is very full. The various branches
are taught from a practical standpoint, with a view to the application of each principal to snch
affairs as people meet with in life and desire to understand.
E nglish L anguage and L iterature .—A ready command of our own tongue, with an ac
curate knowledge of its history and authors, is one of the most important acquisitions. No other
accomplishment can supply the want of this. It can only be acquired by a thorough study of
English. In Christian College the course of English extends through four years and we consider
this one of our most valuable features.
S ciences .—The rapid advance made in the various departments of Science and the rapid
succession of discoveries of new principles and applications, constitute one of the wonders of tho
age. . Np man can claim to be educated who is not conversant with the present advanced stage
of Science. Very thorough work is made of all these, assisted by the use of the apparatus at our
command. Sumcient time is allowed for a comprehensive understanding of the great principles
of each science.
A ncient L anguages .—By pursuing the best methods, the progress in acquiring a knowledge
of the Geeek and Latin languages, is rapid. We have dropped several authors that are frequent
ly read in Collages, with a view to doing batter work iu those that are read, and to give more
time for the pursuit of the course in English and the Sciences. Experience has demonstrated
that both better linguists and scientists result from this course.
B iblical L iterature and E xegesis .—Thia department was organized in Christian College
for the first timo with the. opening of the present session. The object is to study the Sacred
Scriptures analytically and critically, with contem]x>raneons profane history f and evidences of
Christianity. Methods of sermonizing, pulpit oratory, methods in revival meetings and the care
of churches, are all carefully investigated. It is this department that the Christian brotherhood,
as a body, aro particularly interested in. The interest of the church is carefully considered in
this, while all other departments are wholly free from any religious discussions, except the uni
formly recognized principles of Christian morality.
Every facility is hero afforded for fitting young persons to successfully carry on any kind of
business. The best authors are studied on the various subject», and such practical tests aie
made as will insure thoroughness on the part of the student.
