A COLLEGE FOR LEADERS Why do so many H-SC graduates become CEOs, business founders, military officers, and civic and political leaders? They hone their leadership skills through The Wilson Center for Leadership in the Public Interest, which hosts lectures, forums, symposia, and excursions designed to develop effective and ethical leaders. Born when revolutionary fervor gripped a soon-to-be new country, Hampden-Sydney was founded in the progressive spirit of the times, with a devotion to the ideals embodied in representative government and full civil and religious freedom. Spanning four centuries of history and change, Hampden-Sydney understands the value of tradition balanced by innovation, and respect for the past united with forwardthinking principles. There is a unique magic to becoming part of the Hampden-Sydney community. You walk where generations before you have stepped. You hold a deeply-felt responsibility to the codes of honor and civility that have defined the school’s character across centuries. You graduate knowing that you will strive to exemplify throughout a lifetime what it means to be a Hampden-Sydney Man. “The history and legacy that come along with Hampden-Sydney are what intrigued me the most when I was choosing a college.” REED A. COOPER, Freshman, Vinton, VA “It’s not just a GPA here. It’s how you deal with people, relate to others, improve your community and yourself.” ANDREW J. MARSHALL, Senior Ellicott City, MD “Hampden-Sydney’s greatest strength is that it builds character. It challenges you. It makes you think. It makes you work hard. When students graduate from here, they feel that they can do anything— strive and reach out, stand up and touch the stars.” TURNER L. MAKEPEACE, Junior Raleigh, NC DR. SARAH B. HARDY Elliott Professor of English B.A., Stanford University Ph.D., Princeton University Dr. Hardy teaches modern literature in American, British, and French traditions. And while she has published articles on Star Trek and The X-Files, you’re just as likely to catch her reading works of William Faulkner, James Joyce, or Virginia Woolf over again just for fun. If you take a class with Dr. Hardy, you might find yourself analyzing short stories or thinking about different forms of masculinity in the media.
