And then the Student Covenant is found here --and printed below.
I, a student of Patrick Henry College, commit to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength; to love my neighbor as myself; and to bring glory to God in obedience to His Word through the following principles:
I will present my body as a living sacrifice to God, honoring Him in all my actions and seeking a balanced, godly life. (Romans 12:1, 6:13; Ecclesiastes 3:1)
I will guard my thoughts, striving to maintain a pure and blameless mind. (Proverbs 4:23; Philippians 4:8)
I will guard my heart, being careful not to defraud others in my relationships. (1 Thessalonians 4:3-8; Song of Solomon 8:4)
I will guard my tongue, speaking that which is wholesome and edifying. (Ephesians 4:29; Exodus 20:7)
I will regularly meet with other Christians for worship, prayer, encouragement, instruction, and spiritual accountability. (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 2:42)
I will honor and obey all divinely appointed authorities. (Ephesians 6:1-3; Romans 13:1)
I will not judge others who believe differently from me, realizing that they have freedom in Christ in matters of conscience. (Romans 14:13; Colossians 2:16-17)
I will resolve conflicts with others directly and humbly, speaking the truth in love. (Matthew 18:15-17; Ephesians 4:15-16)
I will not become enslaved by anything except the love of Christ, which is the power to set me free. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5; John 8:32-36)
I will pursue knowledge and wisdom through Christ, for His glory alone. (Proverbs 2:2-5; 1 Corinthians 8:1)
Student Honor Code
We, the students of Patrick Henry College, fully aware of our daily dependence on the grace of God, commit to set ourselves apart in thought, word, and deed, to honor Jesus Christ, and to love our neighbor. We passionately aspire to live our best for the Lord by conducting ourselves in the spirit of Titus 2:11-12: “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age.”
Therefore, I pledge, by the grace of God, to submit to proper authorities, to be honest, to respect the property of others, and to speak edifying words. I will refrain from using any substances, such as alcohol, tobacco, and drugs, in any way prohibited by proper authority such as the government, church, family, or school. I will reserve sexual activity for marriage, shun sexually explicit material, and seek parental counsel when pursuing a romantic relationship. Finally, I will seek biblical resolution and reconciliation in my conflicts. I pledge to hold my fellow students accountable to these principles and ask that they do the same for me, in order that Jesus Christ might be honored and glorified.
The Student Honor Code was enacted by votes of the Student Senate on September 22 and November 18, 2008, and approved by votes of the entire student body on September 29 and November 23, 2008.
What's interesting, in light of this very conservative Christian and spiritual perspective, is that the campus does have on campus formal and informal dancing and tells in their page on area attractions about a dance hall where students swing dance on Saturday nights and may study other dance, such as ballroom, salsa, etc.
I wouldn't mind being educated at Patrick Henry myself! There are many very good Christian colleges with distinctive aspects. Greenville, e.g., in Illinois, is known for contemporary Christian music major (Jars of Clay attended there and Chaz Corzine, manager of Christian groups), their acapella choir --link here and on my blogroll and their physics, pre-med, education, adult ed, and environmental science programs. And Yours Truly! Then there is Wheaton [Il] called the Harvard of the Christian schools and just as hard to get into, which sends out excellent grads in many fields. A recent Speaker of the House was from W.C.--and Billy Graham. You can hear a wonderful family/teen counseling centered broadcast every noon on WPOS, 102.3FM from a school at Azusa Pacific U. Azusa, Seattle Pacific, Roberts Weslyan, Spring Arbor, Greenville and Central in McPherson, KS --are all good Christian colleges affiliated with the Free Methodist Church. Huntington University (IN) (United Brethren) has beautiful facilities (thanks in part to Merillat fortune) and excellence in theater/musical theater and philosophy and religion. IN fact, all the Christian schools are good places for philos/religion majors. Moody Bible Institute in downtown Chicago and Taylor University (IN) (in the middle of corn fields) are other good schools in the area. Last I heard, if you go to Moody, tuition is underwritten: you only pay for room and board. Cedarville (Baptist & Calvinist) and Mt. Vernon Nazarene (Arminian) colleges in Ohio deserve inclusion in the list of many wonderful smaller Christian schools. Also, Indiana Weslyan, Liberty Baptist and Regent U.
Ultra conservative/fundamentalist schools include Pensacola in Fla. and Bob Jones U.
Of course, the bastions of atheistic education are the ones we pay for with our tax money--schools which started out as Christian schools also --like Princeton. The Christian schools today are the ones where the students still write their own papers, don't get to evaluate their own profs to the extent that they hold the prof's evaluations over their heads (which must affect the ability to objectively evaluate the students) -- and don't get into binge drinking every weekend and can't fornicate in the dorms.
Which grads are better educated, I wonder?
