Rock Hill College,
This Institution, under the care and management of the Christian Brothers, is located in one of the most picturesque portions of the State, and affords rare opportunities to the student desirous of fitting himself for Civil Engineering, Mercantile, or Literary pursuits.
While proper care is bestowed on every subject taught in the College, our own language receives special attention. The daily exercises of the students in Grammar, Composition, and Rhetoric, are publicly discussed and corrected in the class-room. The English classics are read with all the attention bestowed on a Latin or Greek author; words, idioms, striking expressions and historical allusions are dwelt upon in the spirit of sound criticism and philology. For particulars see Catalogue.
