Go to this school if you are a sheltered, conservative, Bible-thumping homeschooler looking for a way to "fit in" somewhere.

This school is not for partiers, athletes, and normal people.

If you have ANY liberal or libertarian leanings whatsoever, this school is not for you. The professors, administration, and students will constantly try to propagandize you into their close-minded neo-conservative way of thinking. I went to this school because it claimed it provided an unbiased and libertarian education. WRONG. It is a machine that pumps out goody-goody clones that have never deviated from what mommy and daddy have told them.

On top of all that, the "nightlife" and "life in general" is NON-EXISTENT here. This is literally a hick-town full of farm animals. The only store within 30 miles is Wal-Mart, and chances are you'll see half your classmates there.

If you end up going there, DEFINITELY join the Greek System. It is the only normal thing left in this school. I'm transferring to a NORMAL school this year.

PS: Be warned, the girls are UGLY as hell (with the exception of a couple sorority girls). If you like pimple-faced, ghost-white, deformed females who are looking to get married at age 18, then this is the place for you.

responseHillsdale is one of the last Classical Liberal schools on the face of the earth. Much, much more liberatarian and politically diverse than 2/3rds of American Universities. And yes, there are several liberal professors. The difference is that they will actually debate and converse, instead of kicking you out.
