Central Turkey College
Central Turkey College (sometimes called Aintab College) was a Christian college founded in 1874 (or 1876?) by the American Mission Board in Aintab, Ottoman Empire (now Gaziantep, Turkey). It was on a site west of the city, and also had a branch for girls in town. It was burned down in 1891, but was rebuilt.
Its students were largely Armenian Protestants, but non-Armenians and non-Protestants also attended. One of its most famous graduates, for example, was Ashur Yousif, a member of the Syrian Orthodox Church and a future instructor at Euphrates College in Harput.
