PICTORIAL NASHVILLE, TENN y REVECCACOL- C ) LEGE is proud of its former presidents, but it is equally as proud of Dr. A. O. Hen- ricks, who is president at this time. Dr. Henricks came to Trevecca in 1926, as a nationally known evangelist and former presi- dent of Pasadena College, Pasadena, California. Dr. Henricks has ever been successful in all of his undertakings. The secret lies in three things : He is a scholar, a financier, and a man who knows God. As president of Trevecca he is never too busy to push aside his work for a few minutes to encourage some disheartened boy or girl. The day has dawned upon a more brilliant fu- ture than Trevecca has ever before known. The shadows of inefficient equip- ment, unmodernized build- ings, unstandardization and unrecognition from the edu- cational world have flown from her, and the shadow of debt is fast being chased away by the rapidly rising sun of co-operation from the entire zone of the Southeastern District. When Dr. Henricks came to Trevecca in 1926, he found the school staggering under a tremendous debt. The situation was grave. An enormous outlay was being expended monthly to keep up the interest payments. It was realized that either the debt must be paid or ultimately the school would be forced to close its doors and go out of existence. Plans had already been laid by the board of trustees to launch a campaign, but to Dr. Henricks must go a large portion of DR. A. O. HENRICKS, M.A., D.D. the credit for the success of the debt-raising cam- paign. With the aid of Brother John T. Ben- son ' s $25,000.00 gift, the splendid work of Rev. H. H. Wise and others, the school is practically f ree from debt. Dr. Henricks has spent all the time that he could away from college working in the field unceasingly, getting Trevecca College before the public. And with a leader of his powerful per- sonality, the people have foreseen and the coming years can only realize, that which can be de- scribed in one word — SUCCESS.

TREVECCA COLLEGE HISTORICAL arc now on foot to supplement the two years of college work with two additional years work. Tin ' s will enable Trevecca to offer an acceptable Bachelor ' s degree to its graduates. The School of Religion which has played such an important part in the success of Trevecca, has also widened its scope and enriched its curriculum from time to time, and now offers the degree of Bachelor of Theology. In 191 3, just before the founder ' s death, the school had so grown and other considerations arose which made it necessary to secure a new location. A tract of eighty acres facing the Gal- latin road and in one of the most beautiful and attractive suburbs of Nashville was secured. Fif- teen acres were set apart for the campus. No more suitable location for a school could be found. For sheer beauty the campus with its graceful shade trees and bluegrass lawn is the admiration of all who see it. Buildings and equipment have been added from time to time to take care of the growing needs of the school. At the present time Trevecca College is splendidly equipped. The buildings and campus are evaluated at a conserva- tive estimate to be worth $175,000. Dr. Hardy was elected president after the death of Brother McClurkan, and held the posi- tion several years. Rev. S. S. White was presi- dent for one and a half years. In 1925 John T. Benson was elected president and served one year. Dr. A. O. H enricks was elected in June, 1926. Trevecca College is now the property of the Church of the Nazarene. It is the official col- lege of this church, and the only Nazarene school in this section. However, it is not sectarian in its policies. Any young man or woman who de- sires an education under the best of Christian in- fluences will find it congenial at Trevecca Col- lege. The history of this school has been one of marked success, and its students and graduates are now scattered all over the United States and in many foreign lands, carrying the good news of salvation and building the church. That vision granted to Brother McClurkan years before of an institution of this character has become a glorious reality, for " the sun never sets on Trevecca stu- dents. " For the past year a campaign has been running to free the school from debt. This campaign has been successful, and we are glad to report that the school is practically free from debt. With the outside property which the school owns, and other assets it can POSITIVELY BE ASSERTED THAT THE SCHOOL DEBT WILL BE ENTIRELY LIQUIDATED IN A SHORT TIME. The outlook for the future is bright. The favor of the Lord is upon us, and we are going forward to greater things. PANORAMIC VIEW OF COLLEGE

i REVECCA COLLEGE n n □ n n HISTORICAL Location and General Advantag es REVECCA COLLEGE is indeed fortunate in its location in the old historic city of Nashville. The city is called the " Athens of the South " since it is . ' specially noted for its colleges and universities. There are located in Nash- ville no less than fifteen widely known institutions such as Vanderbilt University, Pea- body College, Ward-Belmont College, Fisk University, Scarritt College a nd others. Nashville is further noted for its churches. Five large Southern denominations have their publishing houses and general church executive offices here. It is also a political center, being the capital of the state of Tennessee. Great rivers running throughout the state furnish water power to thriving industries in the city. Nashville is easily accessible since trains and busses arrive from every direction hourly. The city with its suburbs has a population of 175,000 and within a radius of three hundred miles there are 19,000,000 inhabitants. The fact that Nashville is a cultural center brings every noted lecturer, the great evangelists, the major concert artists, and the finest musicians to the city annually. Trevecca students enjoy the rare privilege of hearing all these. Climatic conditions arc unusually mild and healthy. Nashville is far enough South to escape the freezing blizzards of winter, and far enough North to evade the blister- ing heat of summer. Trevecca offers to prospective students : Trevecca School of Fine Arts grants certificates and diplomas in voice, piano, violin, expression and wind instruments. Trevecca School of Religion offers three distinct courses in religious education and training. The degree of Th.B. is granted. Trevecca Junior College offers a wide variety of standard courses in Psychology, Education, Sociology, Biology, Chemistry, History, French, German and Mathematics. This department is splendidly equipped with laboratories, libraries, and other facilities necessary to meet the need of students. Trevecca High School grants a diploma which may be used in con- nection with transcript of credits to enter any standard " A " grade col- Trevecca operates a grade and primary school for those parents who live near the college and desire to place their children under the best Christian influence and Christian teachers. The present administration of Trevecca have fully realized the inability of a great many students to pay a large sum for a Christian education. Accordingly rates on the tuitions, board and room have been made exceedingly low, so that almost any student can now enter the school. Ample opportunities for self-help are available. The college controls a student loan fund for those who wish to borrow money to defray schooling expenses. lege.
