My Hillsdale experience was a terrific blend of personal growth and the discovery of my unique place in an ever-changing marketplace of ideas and skills. My participation in WHIP proved invaluable as lessons from campus gained real-world clarity in the capital. Blessed to work with both the Heritage Foundation and Republican Study Committee, I was greatly enriched by the internship program.
Hillsdale College is a very challenging place to spend one’s college years, but it is so worth it. The work is taxing and relentless, but one’s collaboration with authentic classmates and accessible professors makes it rewarding and purposeful. It is a special place that reveals talent, character, and what constitutes a purposeful life. Every facet of my life is richer for the experience.
