The deep tradition of this all-male Virginia institution dates to 1775, and it is reflected in the idea that Hampden-Sydney is seen as “one of the best schools for a stepping stone to business, law and medicine careers.” With that in mind, “academics are not easy at Sydney, but you will learn a lot and do well if you work hard.” Those academics are provided by a group of “challenging” professors. These professors “strive to get these students on the same level as the professors, themselves, have academically achieved.” And that is a high level indeed. “All classes are taught by professors who mostly hold doctorates.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
