Unabashed Vanity - My son just received his acceptance letter to Hillsdale College
Damifino | 11/30/2013 | Damifino

Posted on 11/30/2013 2:48:01 PM PST by Damifino

Our family is very proud and excited about our son's early decision acceptance to Hillsdale College to attend in the fall of next year. He's also earned a nice academic merit scholarship that we desperately need. We'll figure out how to pay for the rest of it.

Couldn't be prouder or more hopeful about his future.

I do know they have an online Constitution Course as well as several lectures by Dr Arn. (they are amazing)

I am not aware of any online courses for credit.

My eldest niece went there. A great school that will re-enforce the values you have instilled in your son instead of trying overtime to erode them.

I can’t imagine how proud you must be to have your son accepted to one of the best universities in the country.

He will not only come out a better person but also be in high demand in the job market as an engineer, scientist, lawyer, doctor or what ever her pursues.

He wants to eventually practice Constitutional Law but intents to double major in Economics and American Studies as an undergraduate.

I was thinking about a history course or something covering the constitution. I am going for a degree in IT right now. I just finished a course in diversity. It was nauseating at times.

From Wikipedia:

Hillsdale College is a co-educational liberal arts college in Hillsdale, Michigan, United States. National Review has described Hillsdale as a “citadel of American conservatism.”[2][3] Most of the curriculum is based on and centered around the teaching of Western culture as a product of both the Greco-Roman culture and the Judeo-Christian religion. Hillsdale requires every student, regardless of major, to complete a core curriculum that includes courses on the Great Books and the U.S. Constitution.[4]

Congratulations!

The fact that “Glory to God Automotive” is still open after all these years says a lot about Hillsdale.

Thanks for that link — what an awesome idea for a ministry!

I’d had an idea for a TV show (yeah, it would NEVER get produced in this current media culture), about a priest who has a ministry teaching kids how to fix cars. But there it is!

I look at things like Glory to God automotive and realize that I have lived in the wrong place all my life.

My daughter recently spoke about Texas:.

Black Friday: Texas -
1. Cause it was in the 60’s today, it was possible to have scores of handsome Marines in full ceremonial dress at stoplights and at the doors of major retailers like Best Buy collecting toys and money for Toys For Tots. Replace the panhandlers of Portland with these guys- please!!! Being greeted with “Y’all have a blessed holiday” by a man in uniform surrounded by a pile of toys he has collected for charity may or may not cause palpitations (for ladies anyways).
2. The Salvation Army bell ringers pulled double duty- not only ringing bells and collecting money, but opening doors and helping people to their cars. I’ve never seen that before.
3. A man walked down the main strip near the mall carrying a large wooden cross with the words “Remember- Jesus LOVES You” carved in it. Everyone from truckers to Porsches honked and waved.

I haven’t been up in downtown Hillsdale in a while (I have an Aunt that lives there). Good places and people still? Or did they get weird on us?

I don’t know if they still do it but they used to run late model and modified division cars at Butler Motor Speedway down that way.

I haven’t been down that way for years but its a small enough town that I’m guessing its still pretty quiet.

I assume you're referring to the grown-up geeks, freaks, frauds, thieves, socialists, commies and radicals who now occupy the seats of power in the White House, Senate, House and the upper echelons of government bureaucracy.

I'll bet most of them are from Columbia, Harvard, Berkeley, Madison, University of Chicago and other hotbeds of economic and ideological brainwashing.

I would also bet that zero percent of them are from Hillsdale College.
