Excerpt from Religion and the Undergraduate: Four Addresses Delivered at Princeton University, March, 1915
Dr, Fitch's addresses have left a profound impression upon the heart and mind Princeton. The unprecedently large attendance of our undergraduates at Dr. Fitch's meetings... , for four consecutive evenings, their eager interest and sustained attention during his closely reasoned presentation of the fundamentals of Christian truth, their ready response to his appeal as to the claims of Christ upon the American young manhood of to-day are facts of deep significance as regards the spirit of religion in the University. In a place devoted to the pursuit of learning, where our students are brought face to face with the great world problems of the past and of the present, and are ever encouraged to think their way into and through these problems, it would be strange indeed were their thoughts never particularly directed to the serious consideration of the place of religion in their lives.
Dr. Fitch's knowledge of the temper and disposition of young men, of what they think and how they feel, as well as his evident love for them and his yearning for their highest interests, his loyalty to the simplicity that is in Christ, his exceptional powers of acute analysis, and his spirit of reverence and devotion, have served to put old truths in a new light and force them upon the attention and conviction of the many minds open to such a challenge.
