Hampden-Sydney, Virginia

Hampden-Sydney College (H-SC) is one of the oldest colleges in the United States and is known for its deep commitment to providing a contemporary liberal arts education. Located on a 1,300-acre campus in Virginia’s picturesque Southside, H-SC has been shaping young men into leaders with moral strength and intellectual capacity since before the American Revolution. The College prides itself on its supportive and demanding faculty, its exceptional educational experience, and a robust campus life that fosters a strong sense of brotherhood among its students.
