HSC is a fantastic school, but not for everyone. It isn't the college experience you see in movies or TV, but if you want a great education from a prestigious institution with wonderful alumni connections, HSC may be your place. The all-male atmosphere takes some getting used to, and as a freshman it can be hard to meet new girls, but the vibe during the school week is probably perfect for getting things done. The weekends are perfect during football games, and assuming you'll have friends at schools nearby, road trips are common if not sometimes needed on dead weekends. I would recommend joining a club or fraternity or sports team, as they will help you meet new friends and give you something to do, as well as contribute to your social life. If you don't get involved and make the most of this school in one way or another, you will hate it here. Coursework is hard, but worth it. If you put in the time, you should get the grade you deserve. If you blow off class and don't do homework, youre gonna have a very hard time, doing the work and putting in time pays off and the weekends make sure you have time to relax and take a load off. I've only spent one semester at HSC but I would recommend it to anyone. You're going to work hard, but you WILL play hard, and by the time you graduate you will have plenty of alumni ready to hire a Hampden-Sydney man.
