It requires teachers of experience and ability to prepare young men and women for the business affairs of the world. Remunerative office positions, whether in the capacity of stenographer, bookkeeper, short hand, typewriting, penmanship, letter writing, or along other lines, cannot long he held unless the student has taken a full and thorough course of training. Any one of these requirements may he had at the well known Jackson University of Business of Chillicothe. This institution of learning was established in 1898 and from its modest beginning it has been one of advancement and progress. Since its establishment hundreds of the graduates from this school have stepped into positions of trust and prominence in the commercial world.
The university is located in one of the finest and most substantial buildings of the state, and the several department rooms of the school are handsomely fitted up for the comfort and convenience of the students.
The university is a compromise between the standard business colleges and the schools of higher learning. Here are condensed the good points of the former, the schools of advertising, salesmanship, boys and girls preparatory schools, and other lines that emphasize the development of the mind and character. The subjects taught are bookkeeping, banking, shorthand, typewriting, pen art, business penmanship, letter writing, punctuation, grammar, commercial law, commercial arithmetic, rapid calculation, advertising, philosophy of history and literature, business philosophy, salesmanship, voice culture, character development, best thoughts of best thinkers, the art of making friends, piano, dancing, physical culture, parliamentary law, debating, etymology, and commercial geography.
This college differs from other business colleges in many respects. Some of the points of difference are as follows: night school free to day school students; strongest English department of any other business school in America; finest quarters; a free correspondence school for the benefit of the students; the world's desire bureau, which is free to the regularly enrolled students; only school of business in this country that has a dancing hall and a dancing teacher; a broad-gauged and sympathetic manager who neither suspends or expels students.
