What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Hampden-Sydney College is where youthful boys, become young men. While at H-SC you will experience a welcoming College and Community that shows the southern hospitality of Virginia.
Christopher from Hampton, VA
Southern, Conservative, all-male liberal arts college in the heart of Virginia. Preppy, but not too preppy, and if you're not rich it's not a problem. This school will teach you what it is to be a man.
Timothy from North Chesterfield, VA
A great, small, private college that is an amazing match for any student. Like every college, HSC has its flaws; however, the positives greatly outweigh the negatives. The phenomenal professors and unbelievable opportunities available on campus make HSC one of the best colleges in the United States.
