HISTORY OF HILLSDALE COLLEGE

BY HON. JOHN C. PATTERSON, 1883

The new buildings contain much more room than the old. A large and convenient room for the museum has been fitted up in Knowlton Hall, and is now filled with an extensive and growing collection. The library, containing over seven thousand volumes, is conveniently arranged in a suite of rooms expressly designed for that purpose in center building, and is constantly increasing from the proceeds of the library fund, the interest being used to purchase books. The college has telescopes, numerous microscopes, surveyors' instruments, chemical and philosophical apparatus, and especial attention is given to practical work in these departments. It requires as thorough a preparatory training to enter, and as thorough work to graduate from this college as from the university.
DEPARTMENTS
Besides the preparatory department and the regular college department with its classical, philosophical, and scientific courses of study, the institution has several other departments deserving notice. The theological department now has a full corps of professors and teachers, and is in successful operation. Some of the professorships have been endowed and the endowment of others is nearly completed. Students can pursue a thorough and comprehensive course of theology under able instructors, a course that will compare favorably with that of similar schools in the east, and receive the degree granted by them. Three years are required to complete the prescribed course in this department. The commercial and telegraphic department offers superior advantages to those seeking a commercial education. It is in charge of an able corps of instructors and possesses every facility for its work. The department of music has a thorough course of study and work, is conducted by proficient instructors, and offers especial advantages to those preparing to teach music.
