Excerpt from The Index, 1902, Vol. 32
More important and intimate does this relation become during the years of the college course. AS the student passes from one class room to another he takes with him the results of the inﬂuence there felt, either as an inspiration to more strenuous effort or as a mental soporific that is placidly satisfied with the reach of present attainment. The years after graduation, too, are frequent reminders of this patient friend or that judicious counselor among the members of the Faculty of the Old college, to which memory like a pilgrim gray shall love to return and linger in life's twilight hours.
To gain the highest success as a teacher in college, one must be in Close touch with the student body. He must be able to look at questions from the student's standpoint, to interpret correctly the Chan ging phases of the life of the college, and to endure the thousand natural shocks that (college) ﬂesh is heir to. It is well, in these days especially, if he be an athlete; but that is not enough. It is highly desirable that he be a scholar, well equipped and well developed, thereby deserv ing and receiving the respect of every student; but even this is not enough. He must be a man and a student, desiring knowledge, intent in his search after truth, looking upon life in the college world with even more courage and hope than inspire the young hearts about him, and never for a moment losing faith in the ultimate supremacy of industry and righteousness and purity.
