From the January 1915 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As recorded in the first minutes of the society: "A number of the students of the University of California met on the evening of March 21,1907, and organized Christian Science Society of the University of California, according to Article XXVI, Section 13, 'Privilege of Members' [now Article XXIII, Section 8], of The Mother Church Manual."

From that date until the present time, by slow, prayerful steps, endeavoring to follow always the guidance of the divine Mind, the society has proved its right to exist in the university. This has been proved through the service rendered as a source of information and blessing to students desiring knowledge and benefit in Christian Science. From its infancy until the fall of 1913, the society held regular monthly testimony meetings in various available quarters near the campus. A university ruling which does not grant the freedom of the campus to religious organizations, has prevented testimony meetings there.

At the opening of the semester in August,1913, the constant increase of membership and the evident good derived from the meetings, seemed to warrant the calling of additional services. From that time, therefore, testimony meetings were held on the second and fourth Tuesday evenings of each month. For two years, due to the kind cooperation of its board of directors, the place of meeting has been First Church of Christ, Scientist, Berkeley. The location of the church building, only a few blocks from the university grounds, is most convenient for the students.
