70 ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
We do not claim to be the cheapest school. We cannot provide
good equipment and employ teachers with the required character,
ability, training, and experience, and furnish modern, comfortable
homes for our students and be the cheapest.
If you will compare our rates with the rates of the various denominational
colleges of the State which are in our class you will
find that we are charging you from a little to much less than any of
them. This is in spite of the fact that practically all of them have
large endowment funds. Very heavy personal sacrifices are made that
our rates may be as low as they are.
Please remember that this is your college and that the rates will
be lowered just as rapidly as you provide for it an endowment making
