MC joins the rank and file of insti- tutions that define this broad, elusive word we call " college.” But it is not merely average in its definition of the word because its motto of truth and virtue compel it to rise above the rank and file and give an added dimension to education. This dimension is a way of life at Mississippi Col- lege for it introduces the student to life through a Christian education.

i . ' re hills of a small tdwn a tittle west of the state ' s capital city , Hampstead Academy was founded by Missis- sippi Baptists in 1826, as the state ' s first institution of higher leatning. The college was later named Mississippi Academy and then in 1830 assumed lts present title, Mississippi Col- lege. With this title came the authority ' to confer . . . such degrees in the arts, sciences, and languages as are usually conferred in the most respectable colleges in the United States . . .” The Civil War brought destruction and disorganization to the Mississippi College plant and its students. The quest for knowledge pressed on however, and in 1873 a position of stability was again reached. Dr. J. W. Provine ' s administra- tion, 1911-1933, proved to be an important era, for it was during this time that the college was given accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges. In 1943 Dr. D. M. Nelson brought coeducation with the purchase of Hillman College. The end of World War II brought an influx of students and an expansion of the college plant. Nelson Half hiederman, Gunter, and Mary Nelson dormitories came into being while the existing buildings were renovated, enlarged and improved. Dr. R. A. McLemore, incumbent president, ccfme to MC tn 1957 and continued the improvement of its academic prestige and physical structures. The history of this, Missis - Sl ppi s oldest college and one of the oldest and largest Baptist colleges in the nation, is long and impressive; and our college today stands as an ever-progressive institution based on a tradition of strength and pride.
