"You need to balance facts that need to be learned with wanting to develop the students' capacities to wonder. I believe in the end, that will serve them almost more than anything else." —Dr. Rob Irons ’00 on teaching ancient languages to modern students.
When Dr. Robert Irons '00 was a young boy, he would flip through issues of National Geographic with eager eyes and steadfast resolve. "I'd never really been anywhere," he said, "and I'd see all of these far-off and amazing places, and I told myself, 'As soon as I can, no matter what I have to do, I'm going to go see these things.'" Irons's fascination with distant cultures and civilizations would propel him across Europe and the United States,...

The brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon found out this year that brotherhood at Hampden-Sydney College extends well beyond Fraternity Circle.
Since our founding, Hampden-Sydney College has sought "to form good men and good citizens." That mission epitomized William Caleb Wharton '16, so it was a tragedy when family, friends, and the community learned of his death on November 2, 2014. However, this loss of a dear friend came with a blessing: we were all shown more clearly what it means to be a Hampden-Sydney Man and to live within our brotherhood. With the help of this brotherhood, Cale...

Bone marrow donor Brian Collins ’15 talks about the risks and rewards of helping a stranger battle cancer.
Sometimes, the situation makes the man. Thanks to a quick decision, senior Brian Collins-who has never even donated blood before-will be a bone marrow donor later this month. Last fall, Hampden-Sydney held its third "Get Swabbed" drive to help match potential bone marrow donors with cancer patients. The likelihood of being even a preliminary match is less than 1%. Among preliminary matches, fewer than 12% can actually donate bone marrow. Brian...

"They weren't traditionalists. They weren't conservative. When they signed the Declaration of Independence, it was an act of treason. They were radicals. They had to challenge the status quo in order to create something new and democratic and fair and equitable. If you really want to honor [Thomas Jefferson and George Washington], let's do what they were doing and really challenge ourselves." - Jeffrey Yamashita, QEP Fellow

President Chris Howard and Centra Health CEO E.W. Tibbs, Jr., signed an agreement between the College and the healthcare organization today that allows our pre-med students the opportunity to explore different medical fields by shadowing Centra physicians during their rounds. Students can learn alongside professionals in fields such as family medicine, general surgery, emergency medicine, and radiology, as well as many more.

Story

Hampden-Sydney College is a private liberal arts college of 1,100 students located in picturesque Southside Virginia, about an hour southwest of Richmond. The College prides itself on upholding its longstanding mission to "form good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning," as it has since its founding in 1775 with Patrick Henry and James Madison among its first Trustees. Students enter as youths and leave as thoughtful and honorable men, prepared to serve society on a regional, national, and global level.

In continuous operation since November 10, 1775, the College is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the United States, holds the oldest (1783) private charter in the South, and is the oldest of the country's few remaining colleges for men.
