"While the work can be slow-going or stressful at times, I have a very good working relationship with Dr. Hight, who is constantly pushing me to become a better student and researcher." - Alex Abbott ’17 on the benefit of working closely with faculty at Hampden-Sydney College
History and philosophy major, Alex Abbott '17, and Dr. Marc Hight, Elliott Professor of Philosophy, are collaborating on a summer research project in the humanities. The two have been working to relate the idea of immaterialism, as presented by George Berkeley, 18th century Irish philosopher and divine, and religious dogma from the incarnation of Christ to the re-inhabitance of bodies in an afterlife. They are also attempting to find sources t...

Students in English Professor Evan Davis' class may soon be consulting one of his upcoming books: The Broadview Anthology of 18th Century Satire, a collection of works by well-known satirists such as John Dryden, Alexander Pope, and Jonathan Swift; and Teaching British and American Satire, a collection of 35 essays he is editing with Nicholas Nace, his sabbatical replacement this spring.

Dr. Davis also recently spent two months working on a project called Reading Errors in 18th Century Britain, which looks at how accidents in physical books, such as missing pages and misset type, are transformed into incidents in literary works such as Jonathan Swift's Tale of a Tub. Davis received the Mayers Fellowship from the Huntington Library in Los Angeles to work on this project.

"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...

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.
