"The examinations at the close of the late term were conducted with rigor and minuteness, and gave unusual satisfaction to the Board of Examiners. They clearly evidenced that both the president and teachers were persons of broad culture, who have themselves tested the benefits of enlarged courses, in which they would direct others.  Their desire seemed to be, as it should be, to give thoroughness and completeness in study rather than a shallow and perfunctory smattering."
