Harvard, Yale, and Princeton University Stats
What are our colleges and universities founded upon? Let's go back and find out about 3 of our nation's leading universities: Harvard, Yale and Princeton.

Other prominent leaders from Harvard were:

Timothy Pickering – Revolutionary War General; Secretary of War for Presidents Washington and Adams
What was Harvard’s educational philosophy?
The answer to that question is set forth in Harvard’s 2 mottos:
“For Christ and the Church.”
“For the glory of Christ.”
Read Harvard’s directives to students:
Let every student be plainly instructed and consider well (that) the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus, which is eternal life (John 17:3), and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning.
The directives continue…
Everyone shall so exercise himself in reading the Scriptures twice a day that he shall be ready to give such an account of his proficiency therein.
Yale University was also started by Congregationalists for training ministers of the gospel.

Every student shall attend worship in the college hall morning and evening… (and) shall attend public worship on the Sabbath… (T)here shall be assigned to each class certain exercises for their religious instruction…and no student belonging to any class shall neglect them.
(H)e is the best friend to American liberty who is most sincere and active in promoting true and undefiled religion and who sets himself with the greatest firmness to bear down on profanity and immorality of every kind.
Whosoever is an avowed enemy of God, I (hesitate not) to call him an enemy to his country.
Dr. Witherspoon taught that a true friend to liberty and to America would promote religion and bear down on profanity and immorality.
Here are some interesting statistics regarding our nation’s universities during the foundation of our country:
In 1860, 262 of 288 college presidents were Ministers of the Gospel and over 1/3 of faculty were Ministers of the Gospel as well.
An 1890 Survey of State Universities conducted by James Angell (president of University of Vermont and University of Michigan) found the following statistics:
- Over 90% had chapel services.
- 50% had compulsory chapel.
- 25% required Church attendance.
So, the next time someone tells you we are not a Christian nation, here is more evidence in the contrary!
