Rick Jeffrey '75, Non-profit leader
“I was at Hampden-Sydney...in the late ’60s and early ’70s, which was a time of a lot of unrest amongst young people on college campuses in the United States. We certainly did our share at Hampden-Sydney, although it was in a respectful, Hampden-Sydney way.”

Our ‘student-centric’ approach to education and extracurricular activities provides leadership opportunities galore for students from all walks of life.
