I was first drawn to Hillsdale because of its intentional focus on intellectual and moral development. I knew that self-government was something I wanted, even if I didn’t understand its full scope as a high school student when I first heard Hillsdale’s Honor Code. I was encouraged by the camaraderie found among my peers in my years at Hillsdale, with all of us working and growing together. The difficulty of our challenging education created a strong community of beautiful friendships.— Maddie Conover
