Not all Christian Scientists who become students at colleges and universities realize the privilege which they may have, if there are at their respective universities Christian Science organizations formed under Article XXIII, Section 8, of the Church Manual. Statistics show that some college students who, when a religious census is taken, list themselves as Christian Scientists, do not become active workers in the local Christian Science organizations. They may not know all that these organizations offer them and others who know little of Mrs. Eddy's teachings.

The Christian Science organizations in colleges ordinarily have committees for the purpose of welcoming new students who are interested in Christian Science. Some have meetings soon after the opening of the college, to which new pupils are specially invited. In some organizations there is a committee to help new students to locate themselves in suitable surroundings. Sometimes new students are aided to obtain work, should they desire to earn, during their college experience.

These organizations ordinarily provide Christian Science Reading Rooms where authorized Christian Science literature may be read or at least purchased. Generally, too, Christian Science students in these organizations see that authorized literature is available in the college library and in other suitable departments throughout the college campus.
