Work and Self-help.
A number of students boarding
in the College permitted to earn
some of their expenses by work
ia the building or on the grounds
provided they are willing and e
fficient. Liberal pay is allowed
for all work done, but employ
ment will not be continued to
those who fail to do their satis
factorily. Most students earn in
this WHy $2 per month; some earn
larger amounts. Application for
work should be made to the Pres.
ident in advance of coming.
A large number of students find
employment in homes in the city,
sufficient to expenses of board
and tuition. The call for young
ladies for these positions is always
greater than the supply. Appli
cation fo r such employment
should be made in advance thru
the President of the College.
As far as possible we endeavor
to safeguard those working in the
city, but cannot be fully respon
sible for those outside the college
building. Only yoang men and
women of established habits and
character can b e allowed this
privilege of outside residence.
Children under twelve years of
age will not be received, except
special arrangements are made
with the President.
Design and Scope of Ike
The purpose of the College is
to give a thorough, practical chris
tian education. It cares for the
health and physical training, pro
vides for refined social culture,
gives careful attention to morals
and manners, and aims to lead
the students to a personal relig
ious faith and life.
