What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Visit the college. Beautiful location and campus. You might fall in love like I did in the first 10 minutes on campus.
A student from Bedford, VA
Study hard, and take your education seriously! The professors here demand much more from you than your High School teachers, for they expect you to meet their academic demands promptly and creatively. Always be on the lookout for any sports whether they be club or Division III, Clubs and organizations, or affiliations when you enter Hampden-Sydney College, of course Academics are important, but finding a group where you thrive and can show your best potential makes the college feel proud in having men who are passionate about what they love.
Christopher from Hampton, VA
This school is great, but not for everyone. Be somewhat confident in your field of study, but know that the liberal arts education will be almost universal, regardless of your major. They say you can do just about anything with a degree from Hampden-Sydney, but don't come here entirely to find out what you want to study, because the range of options at this school isn't huge. Get ready to apply yourself during the week, and then have a blast during the weekend. There's something for everyone. You've just gotta find your niche, even if you're not a partier.
Timothy from North Chesterfield, VA
Get ready to learn from some of the toughest yet fairest professors in the south. Get ready to make some life-lasting connections with some of the greatest, smartest and kindest friends. Get ready to make an impression on the world.
Jamshaid from Baltimore, MD
