St Cloud business College
Last year we doubled the size of our floor space, and this year, on 1
account of the large and constantly increasing enrollment it was neces-
sary for us to secure still more room. We have just annexed the en- i
tire second floor of the Journal-Press building formerly occupied by S
the Kennedy Business college, and later by the College of Commerce.
This gives us additional room for about a hundred more students.
What causes this remarkable growth, you ask. There are several
causes: First, our efficiency. Our experience covers more than sev- 1
enty-five years of the past, and we expect to be here a good many
years to come. Then our excellent discipline, for without good disci- S
pline there can be" no good school. Then our superior corps of teach-
ers, specialists in their work. Our central location, full equipment,
good light, pure air, pleasant surroundings, practical courses, and
good business management. jj
We have been several years ahead of most colleges in the teach-
mg of Gregg Shorthand, Touch Typewriting, 20th Century bookkeep-
mg, Banking and Civil Service. W also teach the operation of the
Adding Machine, Bank Posting Machine, Mimeograph, etc.
You cannot afford to speculate or experiment in getting your busi-
ness education. The St. Cloud Business College has "made good" and
to be a graduate from this college will always be to your credit. Be-
gin now or January 5. Write for catalogue.
