GENERAL INFORMATION HISTORICAL SKETCH

In 1906 “The Fisherman’s Club,” which combined Bible study and soul winning, was organized for the young men of the Immanuel Presbyterian Church by Rev. T. C. Horton, assistant pastor. The following year, Mr. D. H. Steele, an elder of the same church and manager of a department store, requested Mrs. Horton to open a Bible class for the young women employed in his store, offering a large room for the purpose. The group was named “The Lyceum Club” and grew to include other young women besides the employees of the one store. These two groups of young people presented the challenge of further study and training. The Bible Institute idea was not entirely new; as early as 1901 Mr. Lyman Stewart, a Christian layman with a zeal for the Lord’s service and an almost prophetic eye to the future, had planned for such a school in Los Angeles. Now, in response to an immediate need, Mr. Stewart and Mr. Horton became co-founders of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles. In the fall of 1907, through the cooperation of Rev. A. B. Pritchard, pastor of Central Presbyterian Church, some classes which were the forerunner of the Bible Institute, were held in the lecture room of that church. On February 25, 1908, a meeting was called to effect a permanent or­ ganization. At this meeting the following persons were elected as officers: Lyman Stewart, President; A. B. Pritchard, Vice-President; T. C. Horton, Superintendent; R. A. Hadden, Associate Superintendent; B. C. Atterbury, Secretary; and Leon V. Shaw, Treasurer. Messrs. Horton, Hadden, and Pritchard formed the faculty. There was rapid development of the school. From the beginning its out­ reach was evangelistic. Shop meetings were taken over and conducted. Bible Women’s work was organized, a work among Jews was commenced, as was also Spanish Mission work and work among the men of the oil fields. Extension classes were organized in the city and in surrounding towns. Within three years the school had well outgrown the experimental stage, and a forward educational step was taken with the calling of Dr. Reuben A. Torrey to be Dean. On January 1, 1912, Dr. Torrey began his twelve-year period of service in this office. In order to meet the enlarging needs and to provide a suitable and per­ manent home for the school, a new site was purchased at Sixth and Hope Streets and a new building erected, ground for which was broken on June 22, 1912. This building, dedicated the following year, reflected the builders’ hopes and faith for future growth. Legally known as The Bible Institute of Los Angeles, Incorporated, this institution academically has taken four distinct forward steps in the field of Christian education. In 1936 the Institute applied for and received State authorization for the conferring of certain degrees. Three four-year courses were then organized, leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Christian Edu­ cation, and Bachelor of Sacred Music.

G E N E R A L I N F O R M A T I O N In 1945, in an effort to extend the missionary training program of the Bible Institute, the School of Missionary Medicine was brought into being. This postgraduate year is planned as supplementary training for missionary work and is open to graduates of any school who qualify in the spiritual, intellectual, and missionary requirements that are outlined. In the summer of 1949 another forward step was taken when, in response to repeatedly stated needs of mission boards and other Christian leaders, the school increased its Faculty and enlarged its curriculum to include a Bible College with courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. This school is now known academically as Biola College. The most recent expansion occurred in 1952 when, to keep Christian education in step with world missionary and evangelistic demands, the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, Incorporated, inaugurated a standard three- year Theological Seminary with courses leading to a Bachelor of Divinity degree. This school was named Talbot Seminary in honor of Dr. Louis T. Talbot, who held the office of President from 1938 to 1952 and who still serves the school in the capacity of Chancellor. To meet the demands imposed by the present student body and the en­ larged curriculum a campus site of seventy acres was purchased in La Mirada, twenty-two miles east of Los Angeles civic center. From the small beginning of one course of study to four distinct but related schools on an enlarged campus, the story is one of steady growth and ex­ pansion. The present organization provides for a President over the whole, with a Dean over each of the four schools, one of which, Biola College, presents this catalog. In February of 1961, Biola College reached another milestone in it’s academic history when it became regionally accredited. THE COMMUNITY OF LA MIRADA The community of La Mirada is in Los Angeles County, twenty-two miles south-east of the city of Los Angeles. It lies near the center of Southern California’s fastest growing area, surrounded by such cities as Whittier, Norwalk, Buena Park, Anaheim, and Fullerton. La Mirada is a planned residential community with a present population of approximately 25,000. Included within the community are two major shopping centers in addition to many other business establishments scattered throughout the area. Visible from La Mirada are such outstanding Southern California land­ marks as Mount Wilson, Mount Baldy, Signal Hill, Palos Verdes, and Santa Catalina Island. Famed Knott’s Berry Farm is six miles away while equally famous Disneyland is approximately twelve miles to the southeast. Within an hour’s drive are such popular ocean resorts as Long Beach, Newport, Balboa, and Laguna Beach. While located sufficiently far from Los Angeles to escape its noise and congestion, La Mirada is close enough to enjoy the many cultural advantages offered by a major metropolis. Points of historical interest in the form of some of California’s most famous missions lie within an hour and a half s drive. Recreational facilities lie close at hand. Within La Mirada will soon be created a public park comprising more than one hundred acres with hiking trails and picnic and play areas and an eighteen hole golf course. In winter,

G E N E R A L I N F O R M A T I O N an hour s drive will take one into the nearby mountains where winter sports are available. THE BIOLA CAMPUS The campus is bounded on the West by Biola Avenue and on the East by Luitwieler. It is located midway between the large East-West thorough­ fares of Rosecrans Avenue and Imperial Highway. Approximately three miles to the south is the Santa Ana Freeway. Students coming to the campus by automobile should follow these direc­ tions: coming from the West leave the Santa Ana Freeway at Rosecrans and travel east on the street to Biola Avenue; coming from the South-east leave the Santa Ana Freeway at Valley View and travel north on that street to Rose­ crans where you turn right to Biola Avenue; coming from the East via San Bernardino Freeway (U.S. highways 60, 70, 99), turn south on California Highway 39 to Imperial Highway, and right on Imperial to Biola Avenue. The campus, lying on gently rolling ground, is approximately seventy acres in extent. The buildings in use include the main classroom and science buildings, the library, the auditorium, music building, the commons, the infirmary, two womens residence halls, and accommodations for the men. Other buildings to be erected at a later time include the administration build­ ing, the gymnasium, the student union building, the main auditorium, and two men’s residence halls. On the eastern side of the campus lie the athletic fields. One has an oval quarter mile track with a 220-yard straightaway while the other the baseball diamond. Outdoor basketball, badminton, tennis, and volleyball courts are available for use. THE NATURE AND STANDARDS OF BIOLA COLLEGE Biola College is an interdenominational school of college rank empha­ sizing thorough scholarship and is committed to the evangelical doctrines of the Christian Church. It earnestly endeavors to make these historic doc­ trines a vital reality ih the spiritual life of this present generation. In view of the fact that founders of Biola desired to serve the Christian public, the conduct of a Biola College student is expected to conform to the highest Christian standard. The rule by which he lives is the earnest striving for God s approval and the conscious protection of his Christian testimony. Specifically, there are certain practices which are contrary to the standards of Biola College and from which, therefore, all students are to refrain as long as they are in school: the use of alcoholic beverages or tobacco, attend­ ance at commercial theatres, dancing, the use of playing cards, and gambling in any form. Since the College is interdenominational and yet theologically conserva­ tive, the Articles of Incorporation contain a doctrinal statement an abridge­ ment of which is given below: “The Bible, consisting of all the books of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, a supernaturally given revelation without error or mis-

14

G E N E R A L I N F O R M A T I O N statement in moral and spiritual teachings and record of historical facts. “There is one God, eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us in three Persons —Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. “Our Lord Jesus Christ was supernaturally conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived and taught and wrought mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as is recorded in the four Gospels, was put to death by crucifixion under Pontius Pilate, was raised from the dead in the body that had been nailed to the cross, now sits at the Father’s right hand from whence He is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to inaugurate His millennial reign. In His pre-existent state He was with God, and of His own choice laid aside His divine glory and took upon Him­ self the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men. He became in every respect a real man, possessed of all the essential characteristics of human nature. By His death upon the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becom­ ing a curse in our place. “The Holy Spirit is a Person, is God, and is possessed of all the distinct­ ively divine attributes; He indwells all believers, having baptized them into the body of Christ at the time of regeneration. “Man was created in the image of God, but the whole human race fell in the sin of the first Adam, and apart from Christ is spiritually dead and lost. Men are justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood of Christ and upon the simple and single condition of faith in Him who shed the blood, and are born again by the Holy Spirit, through the instrumentality of the Word of God. All those who receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour and their Lord, and who confess Him as such before their fellow men become heirs of God and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ and at death their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness, and at the second coming of Christ their bodies shall be raised and transformed into the likeness of the body of His glory. All those who persistently reject Jesus Christ in the present life shall be raised from the dead and throughout eternity exist in a state of conscious and endless torment. “The Church consists of all those who, in this present dispensation, truly believe on Jesus Christ and is the body and bride of Christ, which Christ loves and for which He has given Himself. “There is a personal devil, a being of great cunning who can exert vast power only so far as God suffers him to do so, and who shall ultimately be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone.”

A C A D E M I C I N F O R M A T I O N Physical Education.............................................................................4 semesters Additional requirements are listed under the departments offering majors. Each student is assigned some form of practical Christian service, for which he is given credit each semester. These Christian service credits are required for graduation but are not computed in the student’s academic load. In addition to receiving satisfactory scholastic rating in all required courses, a student must give satisfactory evidence of good Christian character and soundness of doctrine, as set forth in the unabridged form of the Statement of Doctrine, and have met all financial obligations. STUDENT GUIDANCE SERVICE Since the establishment of the Personnel Department, the following steps were taken in the development of the counseling program. First, a centralized record system was adopted including cumulative interview forms. Second, a freshman testing program was begun to provide counselors with accurate data regarding the student’s academic aptitude as well as personality traits. Third, channels were established with the Registrar’s Office so that trans­ cripts and grade records were made available to counselors. Accordingly, students are grouped on the basis of major and interest under a faculty counselor whose responsibility it becomes to guide each student of his group through college years and to recommend him to the Student Personnel and Guidance Committee for graduation when his schooling terminates. There has also been the addition of freshman orientation composed of lectures and discussions brought by various members who are in touch with common problems. Finally, the office of Freshmen Counselor has been established to aid new students and others in selecting a major, conquering study problems and solving the many other problems which arise especially the first year of the student’s college life. The objectives of the counseling program have been interrelated with the disciplinary system of the school. A minimum number of rules is combined with instruction in Christian principles of conduct for the purpose of en­ couraging students toward mature self-guidance.
