Written between October 1787 and August 1788, the Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written by Publius—the penname of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay—in defense of the Constitution. This Hostel will explore such important themes as the problem of majority faction, the separation of powers, and federation.
About Hillsdale Hostel
Hillsdale Hostel lets you relive the experience of higher education as it used to be, in a place where it still is. It’s college life as you remember it: the sharing of insights, the give-and-take of lively discussion, the camaraderie of peers. It’s a fresh look at the enduring values of our society in the Hillsdale way, free of the trendy ideological clichés that dominate thinking on so many other campuses today. It’s a vacation unlike any you’ve had—the learning experience of a lifetime, to complement a lifetime of learning.
