The Hendrix Motto

Hendrix Seal

"Unto the whole person"

The Hendrix seal appeared for the first time on the cover of the 1898 catalog. The seal included the College's motto, selected by a committee headed by the Rev. George W. Hill and taken from a passage in Ephesians: "Till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ ..." (Ephesians 4:13, King James Version). Currently translated as "unto the whole person," the motto, in Ancient Greek, reflects Hendrix's dedication to both Christian principles and the traditional liberal arts ideal.
