Central Christian College Receives Accreditation

L. R. Wilson, President

On May 15 the Board of Regents of Higher Education in Oklahoma sent a letter to Central Christian College informing us that "Central Christian College is approved for its course offerings of junior college work, for the academic year of 1950-51.'

On May 18 Dr. Nash, Chancellor of the Board of Regents for Higher Education of Oklahoma, sent us a copy of a letter he had written to the director of the Veterans' Administration saying, "In response to your inquiry, we beg to inform you that the junior college at Bartlesville, Oklahoma, known as Central Christian College has been accredited for the current year, 1950-51, by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.'

A representative of the Veterans' Administration contacted us on May 3 stating that we had been approved for veterans' training under the G. I. Bill of Rights.

On May 22 the Veterans' Administration wrote us the following letter: "This letter is to notify you that Central Christian College has been approved by the Veterans' Administration to train veterans under the provisions of Public Law 1G.'

These statements show that Central Christian College now has full accreditation by the Board of Regents for Higher Education and the Veterans' Administration, as well. We think it quite an achievement to obtain this recognition for our work before the end of our first year. In view of these statements, we think we are prepared now to offer as good work as can be found anywhere in a two-year college. Our facilities, accommodations, and our courses of instruction are all designed to meet the needs of our young people today.

Even though the state institutions may not charge any tuition to students within the state, we believe it will cost about as much in a year's time to attend any of our state schools at is will Central Christian College. We know that we have some things to offer our students that the state schools do not have. The most important part of our training is the development of character and Christian ideals. The training of the heart is much more important than the training of the hand and head. Any education that does not train the heart is woefully lacking.
