Why did you choose Hampden-Sydney?

"Out of every school I visited, H-SC was the only school that offered a great education, competitive athletics, intimate interactions with staff/faculty, and a beautiful campus. I knew after my first visit that H-SC was my top choice. Next, I was introduced to everyone involved with the soccer program and there was no turning back."

What are your greatest memories at Hampden-Sydney?

"I really enjoyed the relationships with professors and other staff around campus. My best memories are mostly related to the friends I made. We had great times together, in class and out."

How has H-SC helped you in your life after college?

"My degree in economics has definitely played a role in how I make decisions in business and in my personal life, but relationships and networking with other alumni has been extremely valuable."
