Fayetta Hall


There are many features about our school which I admire, and there are surely some features which I have not yet learned to appreciate fully. One prominent feature which falls into both of these classes is the university library. My realization of its worth has increased with my growing knowledge of the library's history and development.

When our college was known as the Northwestern Christian University, it was located on College Avenue. As far as is known, no real library was then existant. However, as far back as 1873, a small room in the building was set aside and two of its walls were literally stuffed with assorted volumes. The literary societies then prominent in the college each possessed more books than the "library" itself. The departmental heads also had bookrooms with individual collections.
