A COLLEGE FOR EXPLORERS With more than 72 clubs ranging from philanthropy and service to athletics and music, 14 honor societies, and 10 social fraternities, Hampden-Sydney offers plenty of opportunities t o explore any interest. We believe in the ideal of the scholar-athlete. For many students, what is learned on fields or courts is as valuable a part of their education as the knowledge gained in the classroom. The common bonds built through team camaraderie; the challenges met, disappointments overcome, and victories savored through a game or a season; the lively spirit of rivalry between intramural teams; the pleasure of cheering on friends and classmates—these enrich and deepen the college experience. As a Division III school, Hampden-Sydney does not offer athletic scholarships. Students here play for the love of their sport. That passion is why 1 of every 10 students is on our football team, why enthusiastic crowds turn out for games, why our teams consistently rank in the top of our division, and why freshmen not only play, but also often hold starting positions. “Hampden-Sydney’s view of education is that you have to grow a student not just academically, but socially, morally, athletically—because all these components are important to being successful.” MR. & MRS. DAVID M. HAY Parents of Mikell, Sophomore, Charleston, SC “There are plenty of activities here in which to participate, have leadership roles, take risks, learn from your successes and failures, and keep moving forward.” DUSTIN B. WILES, Junior, Belmont, NC “Many institutions in this country do not feel that character development is part of their job. At Hampden-Sydney it is central to their mission.” WILLIAM T. ZIGLAR ’86 Father of Will, Senior, and George, Sophomore Poquoson, VA “My love for this school grows with each coming year.” TROY D. HAMNER, Sophomore, Salem, VA JARROD A.
