We look forward to working with you as a veteran of the armed services. If you wish to continue military involvement, leadership training, or just want to receive a solid liberal arts education to prepare you for further success in life, Hampden-Sydney is a great place to do so.
Hampden-Sydney College is older than the nation itself, having been founded on November 10, 1775, the same date as the birth of the United States Marine Corps. We have strong connections to our military, both now and in the past. The tradition of Hampden-Sydney men serving our country dates back to the American Revolution and to the two men who gave their lives during it, who are honored-as all our alumni who fought and died in the name of our country-on our War Memorial Gate. The military tradition continues today with the men who serve around the world in defense of our nation and the protection of our liberties.
