"How shall we reach our true selves? Through Love. The Principle of Christian Science is Love, and its idea represents Love." This statement by Mary Baker Eddy may be found in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 104). The college or university student seeking an education often discovers his or her need to express a higher degree of intelligence, joy, order, purity, justice, or love. The activities of our Christian Science organizations point the thought of college students toward the source of these spiritual qualities, divine Love. As the student gains a deeper understanding of man's true, spiritual selfhood as God's likeness, he or she gains the sweet assurance of divine Love's complete provision for each and every child of God. The following are a few ways in which organization members have overcome some of the limitations of the supposititious mortal selfhood and expressed a higher measure of their divinely bestowed talents.

From a university in the southern part of the United States comes the following report about an organization member:

"In his sophomore year, an organization member became ill and had to leave school. He was healed through Christian Science and soon returned to school. In his junior year, he carried a full load of third year studies, made up the time lost during the illness in his sophomore year, carried two part-time jobs, and participated in campus March 28, 1959] extracurricular activities. In the college years following this physical healing, he acquired, with one exception, a straight A academic record. Soon a happy marriage took place, and he was able to support both his wife and himself while they finished their education. These experiences taught this organization member to rely completely upon God and follow divine guidance in every event of his career.
