Relative to enrollment, Hampden-Sydney College educates a large share of the nation's industrial, research, and teaching physicists. This is not by accident; the faculty, innovative in their teaching and active in research, teaches in modern, state-of-the-art facilities housing equipment not typically found in an undergraduate college. Students can work with faculty members specializing in astronomy, astrophysics, superconductivity, physical acoustics, condensed matter, nuclear physics, digital electronics, and computational physics. Hampden-Sydney boasts its own astronomical observatory housing a fully automated, research-grade, computerized reflecting telescope - one of the finest small-college facilities of its kind in the country.
