Become a Tiger

Hampden-Sydney College is a lively community seeking "to form good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning."

Hampden-Sydney is a liberal arts college for men now enrolling approximately 1,058 students. In continuous operation since November 10, 1775, the College is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the United States, holds the oldest (1783) private charter in the South, and is the oldest of the country's few remaining colleges for men.

There are 96 members of the full-time teaching faculty, and a varying number of adjunct professors, highly motivated and dedicated to teaching, for a student-faculty ratio of about 10.3:1. Nearly half of the graduating seniors enter graduate or professional school.

The Hampden-Sydney Athletics department consists of nine varsity teams that competes in NCAA Division III and the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), a conference composed of colleges and universities primarily located in Virginia. H-SC added Swimming as its ninth varsity sport on October 28, 2011. The Tigers have won 50 conference championships (27 in the ODAC) and earned All-American honors 142 times.
