175 Years Of Loving The 'Dale

This campaign ended on March 22, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Hillsdale College by clicking here!

What do YOU remember most about Hillsdale? Discussions in English literature that lasted well beyond your class? Celebrating pick-up with your Greek house? Winning a conference championship with your cross-country teammates? Without a doubt, you have memories of those classes, teams, clubs, and people at Hillsdale that made a significant impact on your life—and continue to influence you today. As the College celebrates its 175th anniversary this academic year, it is fitting not only to reflect on what you love about Hillsdale, but also to do your part to ensure that those same opportunities you had as a student continue for future generations. None of these things are possible without the support from parents, friends, and alumni like you! 

Please help us reach our campaign goal of 300 donors by March 21st! Give back to what you love! 

***Campaign Update*** 

The Campus is quiet—students are still home and preparing to take classes online as we ride out the coronavirus. We hope you’re safe and healthy, wherever you are.

We wanted to make sure you had the full update on what’s going on here. I think Dr. Arnn’s video sums it up really well:


As he said, Hillsdale will be back in full force the moment we can. Although the timing isn’t perfect, the whole point of our annual Give Back to What You Love campaign is to provide for everything that makes Hillsdale, Hillsdale—that very spirit Dr. Arnn describes. When students return, they will be more eager than ever to enjoy what alumni gifts have made possible: clubs, honoraries, Greek life, sports teams, classes, dorm culture, and more.

If you’re able, I hope you will join us by making a gift this week. Over 150 alums have already contributed, so we’re nearly halfway to our participation goal of 300 alumni. Thank you for considering a gift at this tumultuous time. Stay well.
