The Oriole year book: Evansville Junior College
Religious life at the school
Religious Life at the School Long experience in the history of education has conclusively demon- strated that learning of itself does not produce virtue. There is no more destructive force among men than knowledge when turned into wrong channels. The educated derelict is by far the most dangerous delinquent in the social order. Expanding life must be aught the principl:es of right living, the same as the principles of mathematics. Cicero grasped this when he said, "It should not be claimed that there is no art or science of training to virtue. How abzurd it Is to believe that even the most trifling employment has its rules and methods, and that the highest of all departments of human cfforts virtue can be mastered without instruction and practice." The founders of Evansville Junior College sought to establish an institntion in which sterling Christian character should be built up. Its motto is, "Study to show thyself approved unto God." Its aim is not only to maintain a high standard of scholarship, but also to create an atmosphere Which shall stimulate re- ligious life and shall be conductive REV. H. 0. HUBBARD to daily growth in the way of righteousness. The development of the spiritual life of the students Is continually kept in view. Every 'Iuccday eVning a prayer nreeting is held exclusively for those attending the school. Thece meetings are seasons of refreshment and uplift. The missionary intere:ts are well cared for by the College Missionary Society. This Society is supported by the whole school, but gives special opportunity for activity to those who expect to make missions their life work. Splendid programmes are presented at regular public meetings held throughout the year. Evangelistic services are arranged for during the year which are a vital part of the religious life of the school. Evansville is riost fortunate in having as its pastor Rev. H. 0. Hubbard, of the Illinois conference, whose pious life and spiritual ministry are highly appreciated.
