Brother Aidan's Extracts


"Very Rev. Provincial Sorin sat on a Board of Examiners." (February 2, 1865) "Professors should pay more attention than has been the custom to the good manners of the students. The moral and polite instruction of students is even more important that the intellectual." January 20, 1865

"The Seniors will wash their feet on Saturdays hereafter."

"Very Reverend Provincial said he would give $100 to any professor writing a treatise of 150 pages on politeness, suitable for use in Catholic Colleges"

-- Sorin (1865)
