Carolina Quotables

Fra ncis P. Venable"There is some talk in these days of the greater advantages of the small college. It is easy to see that the question is rather one of small classes and that the small college with its over-worked professors and poor equipment can offer little to compare with the fine equipment, high-priced teachers, and small classes of the greater university."

-- Francis Venable, President of the University of North Carolina, 1900-1914
