By KNOWLEDGE, men are formed to whom the treasures of ancient and modern learning are unlocked, men are trained to think and assess value to deal with fact and abstract through, equipped to do the task of today inspired with creative ideas for the task that will be theirs tomorrows. By CHARACTER, men are formed with a capacity to act according to the values learned, who in their chosen careers act steadfastly in accordance with the higher standards of right living and gentlemanly conduct under the guidance of supernatural faith, men who so live the truth that they know that their conviction and courage will give hope and confidence to the world tomorrow. By LEADERSHIP, men are formed to be taken an engagement in society and meet the challenge of the times undaunted in the realm of communication, business, and scientists.
