In a great university, where at first everything is new and strange, it means a great deal to a student leaving home, perhaps for the first time, to meet very shortly after his arrival a number of people who are in sympathy with his way of thinking. It is a great help to know that others are facing the same difficulties, working out the same problems, and to hear how this has been accomplished through the knowledge of God as learned in Christian Science. Testimony is often given by graduates as to the help received while at college from the close fellowship made possible by the Christian Science college societies.

The purpose of the Christian Science college organizations is to bring together once or twice a month, for mutual benefit, members of the faculty, instructors, and students who are interested in Christian Science; also, when it is possible, to give a lecture once a year before the members of the university or college who are interested to know more of what Christian Science really is. The meetings are conducted like our regular Wednesday evening meetings; selections are read from the Bible and Science and Health, chosen with the desire to meet the specific needs of students and teachers, and testimony is given to the efficacy of Christian Science in solving the problems of academic work aside from the general daily problems of ordinary life. These meetings, however, are not supposed in any way to take the place of nor to interfere with the regular Sunday and Wednesday evening services in our organized Christian Science churches.
