Abilene is the commercial center of Central West Texas and
the men who make it such give our schools both their financial

PURPOSE OF ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
The Christian men and women who make Abilene Christian

Lord Jesus Christ, and the ennobling of mankind. The promulgation
of truth and the building of Christian character are primary.

several fields of human endeavor. To this end we are permitted,
by the grace of God and the kindness of consecrated men and
women, to offer the full work of an A-plus four-year college. In

genuine Christian men and women, well equipped for efficient

and efficiency of the school are measured in terms of each or

and a student body. We feel sure that after you have noted the
excellency of our faculty and our equipment in buildings and
