Tuesday Tour Day — Hampden-Sydney College

Today we take you on a tour of Hampden-Sydney College

Since its founding in 1775 the mission of Hampden-Sydney College has been “to form good men and good citizens.” Students are expected to be gentlemen and active and informed participants in the life of their communities.

Hampden-Sydney is a liberal arts college, which aims to instill in students a commitment to life-long learning through studies in the natural sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences; to cultivate qualities of character and moral discernment; to develop clear thinking and expression; to promote an understanding of the world and our place in it; to prepare students for graduate and professional study; and to equip graduates for a rewarding and productive life.

Hampden-Sydney is located in Southside Virginia about 60 miles southwest of Richmond. The 32 major Federal-style buildings are enhanced by the natural beauty of the 1340-acre campus.

Instead of trying to change young men, the school offers an alternative environment in which they can learn and thrive—an environment where diversity is valued, where caring faculty are committed to teaching and mentoring students, and where, in small classrooms free of social pressures, young men claim their voices and receive recognition and support.
