Tan and red cover. Dust has 3/4 inch ciip at top of spine otherwise very good. Now covered in mylar protective cover. Contents clean and tight. The road taken by Hesston College in its first fifty years was no doubt inherent in its conception. For those who have watched with concern its growth and change, for those who have been a part of its life and learning, and for any others interested or curious, the story has been written. Hesston College is a Christ-centered community where each student is educated and nurtured academically, socially and spiritually. As a two-year liberal arts college, we believe that your first two years should be treated as more than something to get out of the way. They should be seen as an opportunity to lay a solid foundation for the rest of your life. ; Photographs; 9.20 X 6.20 X 0.90 inches; 260 pages
