School Information
"Hillsdale is a selective, coeducational college of liberal arts for approximately 1,400 students. Fully accredited, it graduates students with the degree of bachelor of arts or bachelor of science and prepares them for graduate study, for professional schools, for teaching, and for many vocational and cultural pursuits. Hillsdale’s founders opened the doors to all, regardless of race or religion, in 1844. It was the first college in Michigan, and the second in the United States, to admit women on par with men. Its cosmopolitan student body is assembled from homes in forty-seven states and eight foreign countries" (Source: https://www.hillsdale.edu/about/mission/). Hillsdale features a student to faculty ratio of 9 to 1, offering 39 undergraduate degrees within 30 majors and 14 fields of study.
