Their Increasing Use By College Students

[From the Field]

Until the servicemen began to attend the university under the "G. I. Bill of Rights," university students rarely made use of our Reading Room. Now with greatly increased enrollment at the university and with more sincere interest in Christian Science among the returned veterans, we are feeling the need of a more suitable Reading Room location providing a better display space and located on a street nearer the campus.

Some of the students come regularly to study, others only when a specific need arises, as at examination periods.

When studying comparative religions at the university, a few men and women who had previously known little or nothing of Christian Science felt impelled to ask questions at the Reading Room. One student asked his teacher to attend the Christian Science lecture last year. The teacher did so and afterward said he enjoyed the experience. Announcement of the lecture was made to the class then studying comparative religions, and many of the class went. All of this has helped to create a much more lively interest in our Reading Room and has led to increased attendance at church services. With this in thought we have discussed our Reading Room hours in order to have them meet the needs of university men and women.
