First Year Students

The activities of Orientation  will help you make a smooth transition from high school to college and get involved in what makes Hampden-Sydney distinctive:

  • the Honor Code;
  • the importance of the liberal arts curriculum;
  • the strengthening of leadership skills, personal responsibility, and commitment to service;
  • a close-knit community where faculty and staff get to know all their students;
  • and a brotherhood where deep and lasting friendships are made.
