Leadership

A leader requires knowledge, self-confidence, and integrity.
Hampden-Sydney is about all three.

For over 230 years, Hampden-Sydney College has attracted young men with the innate abilities to lead. These men have grown into successful leaders in a college culture which values hard work, responsibility, civility, and honor.

Our intent is to provide you with a strong base of knowledge and experience to enhance your existing strengths, abilities, and talents. A wide array of programs and opportunities will help you best determine how to make your unique, positive impact on campus and in your community, workplace, and the world.
