MONTREAT-ANDERSON COLLEGE
Montreat Leaders Extend Welcome
DR. D. M. MONROE
President
Academic Dean
I welcome you to Montreat-
Anderson College with certain
very definite hopes for you and
fcr the college. In a meeting
I attended recently, one speaker-
observed that college is the
first chance for students to be
treated_as adults, and the last
chance for them to get a liberal
education. I welcome you to the
college with the hope that you
will find it a rewarding en
trance into the adult world, a
world of both freedom and res
ponsibility, a world that may
not turn out to be as glamerous
as you had expected, but one
with many rewards to accompany
the hard knocks. I also wel
come you to the college in hope
that you will find here some of
the rich rewards of liberal edu
cation. I hope our faculty will
be able to help you see more of
what the world is becoming, and
meaning, more of who you are,
and what you can become, and
more of how you fit into the
complex pattern of what is
transpiring today. They will
be attempting to help you uti
lize all the great thinkers of
all times, the historians, the
sociologists, the artists, the
scientists, the philosophers,
the religious thinkers, etc.,
to help you understand yourself
and your world more clearly. I
hope you and we will find satis
faction in this venture.
