f^i^toFij o! nionn^outl^ GolkgE. ONMOUTM COLLEGE is denominational but not sectarian. As a Colle3;e it is United Presbyterian, yet it enforces no /.v // It is characterized by a spirit oE Loyalty to its own and Liberality to others. Its sphere is, the Church, the Community, and the World. Its answer to the first question in the College catechism " What is Education? " is, " It is a threefold development of body, mind and spirit. ' " here mentioned in the order of their importance, physical, mental, r.Toral. Its distinctive feature as an Educational Institution is summed up in the word, ' ' Christian. ' ' It emphasizes the idea of educating the moral sense and conscience. It boldly asserts that .spiritual power is better than that of body and mind combined, but that the education of all three together is the best — the only true education. Such ideas gave birth to Monmouth College In the belief of such principles its foundations were laid, and during all the years of its history the aim of the College has been to accomplish this end.
