Bob Jones University, South Carolina (Campus History Series) by Bob A. Nestor

Opening its doors as Bob Jones College in College Point, Florida, in 1927, and continuing in such a role in Cleveland, Tennessee, from 1933 to 1947, the school became a university when it relocated to South Carolina in 1947. Founded by world-renowned evangelist Dr. Bob Jones Sr., the university is guided by its mission statement: "Within the cultural and academic soil of liberal arts education, Bob Jones University exists to grow Christ-like character that is Scripturally-disciplined, others-serving, God-loving, Christ-proclaiming, and focused above." The 210-acre Greenville campus has a student body numbering more than 4,200 students from every state and 50 foreign countries.
