The features of Christian College to which we especially invite attention, as distin&Hve of our
work are as follows:
C hristian M obality .—The Bible 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 aro
carefully avoided. We ignore all religions or political divisions, and encourage great freedom of
thought. aDd 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 timte is for men of action. An institution
of learning to meet tho needs of the people, should not only impart instruction, but alon£ 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 the 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 usefill, 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.
