CCA IV: Sports and Character
Sports are often thought of merely as recreation or entertainment. But as the mission statement of Hillsdale College Athletics makes clear, they also inspire and elevate our minds and characters. This fourth CCA of the 2015-2016 academic year will consider our attachment to sports and the relationship of sports and character past and present.
