Why did I choose H-SC?: "I chose Hampden-Sydney for the brotherhood and the connections this college offers for those who want to capitalize on them. I have made many wonderful friends here through classes, my fraternity, and sports. This also is a place where we can get away from the world and be our place in the universe. Also coming out of a long swim career, I was hoping to start a swim club here my freshman year, but other circumstances prevented me from getting it started. Then sophmore year someone started a Waterpolo club and I started playing waterpolo."
