A COLLEGE FOR OUTDOORSMEN Interested in hunting, fishing, trap shooting, biking, or camping? Our 1,340-acre campus offers easy access to forests, fields, streams, and open water. 6. We don’t just study science, we experience it. Our science curriculum centers on realistic, project-based, instrumentcentered laboratory experience and prepares our graduates to be outstanding in post-graduate programs and careers. In fact, our percentage of successful Ph.D. candidates in chemistry for the past 40 years is an astronomical 90%, well above the national average of about 60%! 7. Leadership classes are taught by leaders. The Wilson Center for Leadership in the Public Interest offers classes that explore not only the practical requirements of leadership, but also the moral and ethical challenges facing today’s leaders. These courses were developed and are taught by men who have held significant leadership positions in government and the military. It is the belief of the Center’s founder Lt. General Samuel Wilson— informed by a lifetime of service to his country—that this emphasis on the moral and ethical demands of leadership is what sets the Hampden-Sydney program apart. 8. Entrepreneurship thrives at H-SC. The Center for Entrepreneurship and Political Economy (CEPE) Student Fellowship program provides funding and mentoring for independent student research topics and a platform for these students to publish their work. In addition, the CEPE-sponsored “Tiger Den” entrepreneurship competition provides financial support and alumni mentorship. 9. The H-SC student is a man with a plan. The College’s high-quality liberal arts curriculum is complemented by programs, experiences, and services designed to help students jump-start their professional future. Whether they are participating in the alumni mentoring program for freshmen, pursuing internships on- and offcampus, or attending one of the many available business etiquette workshops and dinners, H-SC students are being prepared from their first year for success in the world beyond our gates. 10. We believe in the power of a simple hello. At Hampden-Sydney, every student is expected to greet and speak to anyone they pass on the sidewalk, in the hallway, or anywhere on campus. By doing so, we demonstrate respect to all members of our community and our guests.
