2021 New Student Orientation
Summer Orientations: June 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, or 23
Summer Orientation will not only connect you with your classmates and the Hampden-Sydney community, but also will 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 an academic advisor, and learn about the resources available to help you on your journey. During Orientation, you will meet new and current students, and explore our beloved campus through 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.
Before the Hill
Get a jump on making lasting college friends during Brotherhood Before the Hill. The summer adventure program is offered June 18-20.
Can't make it to Summer Orientation or Before the Hill? We will see you at the beginning of the semester for Fall Orientation, August 19-22! Mandatory for all new students—both freshmen and transfers—orientation will not only connect you with your classmates and the Hampden-Sydney community, but also will provide you with information about how to succeed in college.
In the meantime, if you need more information, feel free to contact Sandy Cooke. We wish you success and encourage you to take full advantage of all that the College has to offer.
