Download PDF for this date

The Yeshiva College has been placed by the State University upon the list of approved colleges for State scholarship holders. The State of New York offers annually in every county, five scholarships for each assembly district, each scholarship amounting to $100 a year for four years, if the holder is in attendance at an approved college.

The Yeshiva College, now added to the State list of approved colleges, and just completing the work of its first year, is the only college of arts and science in the world, under Jewish auspices, offering approved courses leading to the Baccalaureate degrees. The Yeshiva College at present limits admission to students of the Yeshiva (Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary), of which it is an integral part. In the present Freshman class, seven states of the United States are represented, Dr. B. Revel, president of the faculty, stated.
