Beautiful for situation, and easily accessible from all points.

Rare combination of standard courses with economy of time and means.

No college anywhere better adapted to the circumstances of the self dependent.

THE PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT prepares for each of the college courses; affords, also, a
good academic education.
THE NORMAL DEPARTMENT offers a three years' course of four terms each. Also, a shorter
term, excluding Latin. Facilities in this department greatly improved.

Other Departments are the COMMERCIAL, the MUSIC,

The Museum, Reading-Room, and Gymnasium are Unsurpassed.

THE LADIES' HALL is a pleasant home, being provided with electric lights, bath and toilet rooms, hot and cold water. Room rent, in case two persons occupy same room, costs only 50 cents a week for each person, and the electric light is free. There is also a commodious dining-room where ladies or gentlemen can get good table board for $1.75 a week. All under the supervision of a professor, who resides in the building.

If quality is considered, and also the convenience of our arrangement
of the college year, there is no more economical college anywhere.

The School of Pharmacy is very complete. There are about sixty recognized schools of pharmacy in the United States.

In Music, on account of the school being located so near Chicago, we are obliged to compete with the best work done there, so that students have every advantage here that they could have in the city, and at an expense not one-fourth so great. What is said of the completeness of these departments may be said of each de
