NEW STUDENTS ARRIVE: Friday, August 19, 2016

Your adventure at Hampden-Sydney College is about to begin!

New Student Orientation 2016 is Friday, August 19 - Tuesday, August 30. It will not only connect you with your classmates and the greater Hampden-Sydney community, but also provide you with information about how to succeed in college. You will have the opportunity to explore our academic program, begin building a relationship with your academic advisor, and learn about the resources available to help you on your journey. During orientation, you will meet new and current students, discover our many student-led clubs and organizations, and explore our beloved campus through friendly competition and social events. You will find that here at Hampden-Sydney you are not just "at college;" you are involved in a community that challenges you to become the best man you can be.

Please keep in mind that Orientation is required for all of our new students, both freshmen and transfers.

In the meantime, if you need more information, feel free to contact me or Kyle Burns '18, New Student Orientation-Transition Leader Chairman. You are about to begin an extraordinary and very important chapter of your lives. We wish you success and encourage you to take full advantage of all that the College has to offer.
