Hampden-Sydney College has once again been named one of the nation’s best by the Princeton Review.

The Princeton Review has recognized Hampden-Sydney College as a top college in the 2021 edition of its college guide, The Best 386 Colleges. Hampden-Sydney receives high marks in the following Princeton Review categories:

No. 2 – Best Alumni Network
No. 5 – Best College Library
No. 5 – Most Active Student Government
No. 14 – Best Schools for Internships
No. 14 – Most Politically Active Students
No. 15 – Future Rotarians and DAR
No. 19 – Happiest Students
No. 22 – Impact Schools

The Princeton Review gives the College’s academic program high marks, characterizing the Rhetoric Program as “Olympic-level training in writing and speech” and praising the interdisciplinary Core Cultures program for ensuring “students learn about the past from both a Western and a global cultures perspective.”

In addition to praising the Honor Code, the social scene, and the alumni network, Hampden-Sydney students described their professors as “accessible,” “eager to teach and keep the class engaged,” and “nothing short of excellent.” 

As Hampden-Sydney prepares to begin its newest academic year, we couldn’t agree more.
