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.

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.
