The government of the university aims to be mild but firm in what few regulations it has. Constant thought is exercised to cultivate qualities of manhood and womanhood in every student. Whenever a student aims to do right, and be diligent and successful in his daily work, he scareely realizes that he is under government. While the general oversight has especial care for christian training, yet the school is non-sectarian in its teaching and gorernment. Its courses of study are on a high grade, comparing favorably with other institutions of equal grade in the East, excepting in number of elective studies. The aim is thoroughness in teaching, and clear, symmetrical and high minded culture.
