Progress of Mount Morris College
During the Last Year
Old Sainlslone as it looked on january 15. Illlil,
Uld Sandstone burned -Iamiary 15. 11112. Since then the college campus
has been a busy scene. The year will go down as a year of expansion in building.
Immediately after the fire the trustees began their plans for rebuilding. At first
they thought only of reconstructing Old Sandstone, but as they came to consider
the needs of the college, the future of the school loomed up before them and
they saw that more was needed. Being business men of push and sound judg-
ment, they immediately buckled down to work.
Old Sandstone as rebuilt is not only the best school building on the
campus, but one of the very best in this section of the state. The new dormitory
is the admiration of all. The central heating plant is one of the very best that
could be installed. The new equipment that is being secured for the laboratories,
library and recitation rooms is all that could be desired.
The trustees are putting in improvements that will run over 360,000 This
money has come from hundreds of donors. There have been a few heavy donors
and a large number of men and women' with moderate means have not only
given to the building fund, but have come into vital touch with the college.
l11 spite of the hindrances from lack of room and accommodations, the
attendance has kept up well. The enthusiasm with which all are filled is a
prophecy of increased attendance next year. The college department is coming
to the front, and the other departments are holding their own. just now agri-
culture is on the boom. Manual training will have good quarters next year, and
domestic science will have its full allotment on the program. XVhile pushing out
in the vocational work. the college will not let up on the regular lines of study
which have proved their efhciency in the past.
