In its inaugural year, The Good Men Plan proved itself a valuable addition to Hampden-Sydney's programming for first-year students. This year, freshmen will hear about leadership from President Howard; consider the role of wellness in their lives; begin developing a four-year academic and professional development plan; and discuss with their peers what it means to be a man and a member of an inclusive community. 

Many members of our faculty, staff, and greater College community have volunteered time to ensure its success by either coordinating or participating in programs. Freshmen are expected to attend all Good Men Plan programs, and throughout the course of the year there will be several drawings for major prizes to reward students who have met that obligation.
