The New Brown Student Center

On November 3, 2017, the Hampden-Sydney College community gathered to dedicate H-SC's latest campus addition, the Brown Student Center, which has quickly become a community hub for students, faculty, staff, and campus residents alike.

Good Men, Good Citizens, Great Coaches

In the midst of growing scandals that would eventually rock the college basketball world and take down one of the NCAA's most powerful coaches, not one but two Hampden-Sydney men received national recognition for their character and leadership in collegiate basketball. Russell Turner '92 and Ryan Odom '96 were named finalists for the 2017 Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award, presented annually by to a Division I head coach "who achieves success on the basketball court, while displaying great moral integrity off of the court, as well."

Public Service in the Shadows

A quick Google search for Hal V. "Trey" Lackey III '86 yields almost no hits—surprising in this age of instant information and social media interaction, especially given the H-SC alumnus' successful career as a public servant. In fact, Lackey has returned to the College frequently over the years as a member of the Wilson Center for Leadership Board of Advisors, but he notes that "for the longest time when I was on campus for a lecture or a panel discussion, I really couldn't talk about what I did, or even where I worked." This September, however, Lackey was able to acknowledge his 25 years with the Clandestine Service of the Central Intelligence Agency when he gave the keynote address at the Wilson Center's 9-11 commemoration.

Spotlight on Student Research

"At Hampden-Sydney, we are working to provide experiential learning opportunities for our students," says Dr. Michael Wolyniak, director of the College's Office of Undergraduate Research. "Our summer research program is experiential learning in its purest form: students take what they've learned in class and apply it independently to a problem. In the process, we see them develop their own ideas and really flourish." The College sponsored 32 student research projects on campus this summer in both the humanities and the sciences. In this issue, The Record spotlights the research of two seniors, both biology majors and chemistry minors, who hope to pursue graduate work after Hampden-Sydney.
