Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan was founded in 1844. It is a small, private, liberal arts college with a strong conservative and libertarian emphasis. The coeducational student body of about 1,300 students pursue a four-year curriculum leading to the BA (bachelor of arts) or BS (bachelor of science) degree.[2]

Hillsdale's enrollment has surged in recent years because it does not impose COVID-19 vaccine tyrannical requirements as Leftist schools do.[3] Covid vaccination is a personal choice at Hillsdale. Mask-wearing is also rarely seen on its campus.[3]

Hillsdale College is one of only three major colleges that has remained completely outside of federal regulations by declining federal funding and federally guaranteed student loans.[4]

Hillsdale boasts an excellent 10-1 student faculty ratio, and sponsors off-campus internships, overseas study programs and the adjunct seminars of the Center for Constructive Alternatives, the Mises Lectures in free-market economics, the National Leadership Seminars and the Hoogland Center for Teacher Excellence.

Hillsdale publishes the widely read Imprimis newsletter. Adjacent to the campus is the model primary and secondary school, Hillsdale Academy, whose comprehensive Reference Guide is used in hundreds of schools throughout the country.

Hillsdale teaches the atheistic theory of evolution as though it were true, but otherwise it is considered to be one of the finest conservative colleges in the country.

Constitutional Literacy

As an effort to increase the constitutional literacy of American voters, Hillsdale College offers free online courses full of information. Some of those courses include: Constitution 101, Constitution 201, The Federalist Papers, Great Books 101, Great Books 201, Economics 101, An Introduction to C. S. Lewis, and a course on Winston Churchill.

Criticism of Education Establishment

Hillsdale President Larry Arnn candidly observed at a private event caught on video that many teachers at liberal colleges were trained "in the dumbest parts of the dumbest colleges in the country."[5]
