A COLLEGE FOR VOLUNTEERS Find out what it really means to be a good man and a good citizen. Our Civic Engagement program will help you find ways of contributing to the world outside the college gates through volunteer service. When you enter the Hampden-Sydney campus, you escape the frenetic pace of the larger world and engage with the life of the mind. Firsttime visitors often remark on the welcome tranquility of the setting, with its rolling hills and stately architecture. Our campus is close enough to everything, but far enough removed that students find the focus they are seeking in the midst of our hyperconnected modern culture. Campus life becomes the center of a richly varied college experience, where students build strong bonds with each other and with a committed faculty of scholars and mentors. Conversations carry over from classroom to playing field to residence hall. Curiosity is respected. Lifelong friendships are formed. Studying is given priority. And an active extracurricular program adds depth and breadth, offering everything from fraternity events and outdoor programs to debate, performing arts, political clubs, student government, and volunteer and community-service work. “I was unsure about going to a men’s college in rural Virginia, but after visiting the campus, it seemed a purpose-built atmosphere for my education.” JUSTIN J. REID, Freshman, Cary, NC “I am completely sold on a small school. The strong sense of brotherhood between students is amazing. I also easily get to know my professors, and can discuss the game last night or an emerging theory.” TYLER A. MCGAUGHEY, Junior, Danville, VA “There is always something to grab your interest here. You can go to a lecture, hike around the Wilson Trail, fish at Lake Chalgrove, attend a sporting event, or go to the Circle.” THOMAS R. CARSWELL, Junior Woodbridge, VA “I toured Clemson, JMU, Virginia Tech, and many other schools, but the only place I applied was Hampden-Sydney. I could not picture myself anywhere else.” E. WHITAKER REED, Sophomore Farmville, VA THE HAMPDEN-SYDNEY VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT Although the majority of its members are students, the Hampden-Sydney Volunteer Fire Department is neither a student club nor a College organization. It is a non-profit corporation that was incorporated in 1982 as the Prince Edward County Fire Department to provide protection to the College and central areas of the County. The Fire Department operates an Emergency First Responder program that coordinates with the Prince Edward Volunteer Rescue Squad to provide emergency pre-hospital care.
