Matt Sauer

Admissions Counselor
Indiana, Ohio
Ask anyone at Hillsdale why they love it and the reply is always the same: “It’s the People.” I am grateful for my Hillsdale friends who are willing and able to converse about politics and theology, obscure indie rock bands, and every topic in between. I am also indebted to my Hillsdale professors who challenge their students, correct them gently, and encourage them both as scholars and as human beings. I found myself at Hillsdale surrounded by people I wanted to emulate, discerning them to be not only serious and inquisitive, but also witty and kind, fiercely committed to one another and to the truth.
