A COLLEGE FOR VISIONARIES You have a vision for your career, but maybe it doesn’t correspond with one of our majors. Tiger Tracks are a series of guides that provide a road map of classes, extracurricular activities, resources, and alumni connections that will help you prepare for the future and reach your goals. The value of a truly great education continues to reveal itself across a lifetime. At Hampden-Sydney, our curriculum follows in a liberal arts tradition that has stood the long test of centuries. While some schools offer highly specialized areas of study directed toward specific career paths, we believe that broad inquiry across many fields is the strongest foundation for a successful future. The challenges faced by today’s workforce are more complex and require a broader skill set than in the past. Employers prioritize critical thinking, communication, and complex problem-solving skills when making hiring decisions—skills that are honed in a liberal arts environment. A Hampden-Sydney education forms well-rounded young men by asking you to think, to question, to weigh differing perspectives, to form and defend opinions, and to communicate your ideas effectively. Most important, in a world of constant disruption, where tomorrow’s careers may not yet exist and the only certainty is change, a Hampden-Sydney education helps you learn how to learn. We offer the tools that allow you to continue to innovate, to master new concepts, to embrace the unexpected, and to seize every opportunity. “You learn to write, and write well here. You have to be understood to be successful. H-SC will give you that and more.” TILLMON E. COOK, Sophomore Concord, NC “Strong social skills are in demand in the business world and Hampden-Sydney men have those talents in great measure.” BRANCH W. VINCENT III ’83 Father of Branch, Senior, Southern Shores, NC “In graduating from Hampden-Sydney, you take with you a solid measure of competence and confidence, two traits in short supply these days. To be both a competent and confident person is a great comparative advantage in today’s world.” W. TAYLOR REVELEY III President, The College of William & Mary Commencement Address 2016 DR.
