I don't like haikus.
In English, they often fail
to say what needs to

The challenge is to write the haiku so it says what needs to be said using the format, in English!

“What is your favorite day of the week?”

“My favorite day of the week is Thursday. It's almost as if everyone has this quiet anticipation for the weekend, and it's a happy, hopeful vibe. No matter what happens throughout the week, God is faithful to bring you the weekend every time. It's a good reminder that there's always a rainbow after the rain.” - Carly Howell #FacesofHillsdale #Classof2017

Happy National Poetry Month! We're going all-out to celebrate this month, since the creative writing culture on Hillsdale's campus is vibrant. This year, a few students teamed-up to start the Creative Writing Club. One of the founders wrote this story about the club: http://studentstories.hillsdale.edu/2015/04/01/doing-it-write-club-unites-writers-on-campus/
I think everyone secretly wants to be a writer. At Hillsdale, we have plenty of writers on campus: Collegian newspaper reporters, the brave souls submitting to the Tower Light literary magazine, an...

Wondering what you should do after graduation? Some of our graduates have done really cool, out-of-the box things. We've interviewed a few of them here: launch.hillsdale.edu.

"Reasonable tuition costs."
"One thing I initially viewed as a negative was the small town setting."
"The school does not take federal funding, which is very impressive."

We chose to send our son to Hlllsdale for their strong academics, leadership and indepedence. My wife and I can't say enough about this school. It is a tough school academically, but my son has risen to the challenge. It is because of Hillsdale's conservative principles and patroitic spirit that we have seen a marked difference in our son's life and character.

Calls me periodically and thanks me for my financial support (I have no relationship to this place). I just report them to the FTC as a scam caller.

I took the free Econ 101 class and it was excellent. I had taken economics years ago as part of prerequisites for an MBA program, but I actually liked this class better. It was very clear and concise. The instructor gives great examples to drive home the concepts. Every elected official who is involved in spending tax dollars should be required to an economics course. Now that this is free, there really is no excuse.

The college does not always practice what it preaches when it comes to free market ideologies, the town is boring and in the middle of nowhere, and the campus is somewhat uneventful and cold, but the classes are academically challenging, greek life is well organized, the facilities are very modern and well-kept, the professors are fantastic, and the students are very nice, and there is a good balance between partying and studying. Very religious. Very independent. Very conservative. Reasonable tuition costs.

A lot of people on here giving 1-stars just because of their intolerant prejudices, so thought I'd help even one of those out. But really, I've only heard great stuff about this college, it overcomes the reliance on government that the nation's wealthiest universities still lean on. I've heard several of Hillsdale's professors speak, and was more than impressed. I wish I could have gone there! I don't understand why people feel the need to attack a school that only leans conservative, when virtually all other colleges that I have seen and visited are hugely liberal, and actually push their beliefs onto students in very uncomfortable ways. I'm a student of Kent State University, and I'm happy to be around it's diversity, but it often feels like the school and majority of students are only tolerant of other people's views if it doesn't conflict with their own. Not to mix up personal opinions with actual convictions, a pool that seems to run more and more dry the longer I observe.

I recently completed the lecture series on the Constitution and proudly display the certificates of completion I received. These are outstanding courses led by Dr. Larry Arnn, one of the most brilliant lecturers I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. None of the professors I had in university could come even close. Anyone who has even a passing interest in the founding of our country or who is uneasy about the direction it has been going in recently should at least watch the first introductory lecture. If you do I can almost guarantee that you will be hooked.

Unfortunately, politically-leaning colleges like Hillsdale take a beating in these sorts of polls. Those who disagree with the political policies but know nothing of the institution have no problem down-rating the school. Focused on promoting the Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian heritage of the West, Hillsdale College encourages critical thinking. Secondary sources are rarely used, and primary documents bring students back to the origins of opinions that we have today. "Why is it unjust to redistribute income?"... "What is the true purpose of foreign policy?" By pursuing truth in these areas, students are more comfortable in defending their opinions. Of course, a Hillsdale degree is not limited to the study of politics and economics. Like any liberal arts institution, Hillsdale offers a range of majors from Physics to English. As for location, the weather is unfortunate. Winter extends from late October-late March, and sometimes the sky is gloomy for weeks. While this does not speak to the quality of the institution, it certainly is a concern for some high school seniors who are shopping colleges. Student-teacher ratio sits at ~10:1. TAs, or teacher assistants, are never used to teach a class. The average class size is 15 students (unless you are interested in pursuing business or economics, which average at 30). In terms of athletics, the school is in Division 2. Football and volleyball have been very successful in recent years. Googling "hillsdale charger athletics" will bring you to the athletics page.
