I am currently a freshman in my second semester at Hampden-Sydney College. I can easily say that it is the best decision I've ever made. The students, the faculty, the academics,the campus, etc, everything is wonderful. But the people at H-S are hands-down the best aspect of the school. I've never met so many friendly people in my life.

The all-male aspect may deter perspective students, but trust me when I say, don't let that happen to you. There is a very strong sense of brotherhood at H-S. These guys would do anything to help you out, and you would do the same for them. The academics are challenging, but definitely rewarding. You'll find yourself spending late nights reading, writing or studying for a test. Seriously, the libary will become your second home. But don't be discouraged if you get a bad grade on a test or a paper. Learn from your mistakes, and you'll only get better.

Hampden-Sydney is famous for its rhetoric program, which teaches students how to write competently. You'll write more papers at H-S than you did in all your four years of high school. But you'll grow to be a very good writer. 97% of the factuly has doctorate degrees. That being said, you are getting a top-notch education. Class sizes are very smaller, never more than 20 students, and they are discussion based rather than lecture based, which is very nice and interesting.

Hampden-Sydney teaches you more than just academics. The school instills integrity, confidence, and dedication in you. I don't believe there is a single place on earth that transforms men like Hampden-Sydney College. It is truly a wonderful institution and I wouldn't go to any other school.
