B uilding .—Only one wing of the now brick College building has been completed, and this
is being remodeled and greatly improvod this year. It contains three working stories of large,
airy and well lighted rooms, used for study and recitation. The old College building adjoining
has been thoroughly overhauled and converted into a pleasant and commodious chapel.

A SPECIFIC FOR
The features of Christian College to which we especially invite attention, as distinctive of our
work are as follows:.
C hristian M orality .—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 thfi lives of our students. Dogmatism and becteriauism are
carefully avoided. Wo 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 tno 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 bx 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 such
affaiin 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 arid authors, is one of the most important acquisitions. No other
accomplishment can supply iho want of this. It can only be acquired by a thorough study of
English. In Christian College the course of English extends through four jears and we oonsider
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 the
age. No 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. Sufficient time is allowed fos-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 Goeek and Latin languages, is rapid. We have dropped several authors that are frequent
ly read in Colleges, with a view to doing Ixjtter work !»• those that are road, and to give more
time for the pursuit of the Course tn English and the Fciepeee. Experience has demonstrated
that both better linguists and scientists result from this course.
B iblical L iterature and E xegesis .—This department was organized in Christian College
for the first time with the opening of the present session. The object is to study the Sac rod
Scriptures analytically and critically, with contemporaneous profane history, and evidences of
Christianity. Methods of serinouizmg, pulpit oratory, methods in revival meetings and the care
of churches, are all earefully investigated. It is this department that the Christian brotherhood,
as a body, kre particularly interested in.- Theiuterei t of the church is carefully considered in
this, while all ether departments are wholly free from any religious discussions, except the uni-
ibrmly recognized princinles of Christian morality.
Every facility is herb afforded for Atting young persons to successfully carry on any kind of
business. The be-t authors are studied ou the vario ;s subjects, and such practical teats are
insure thoroughness ou the part of the student.
