Most colleges are following the herd and bringing academically trendy, politically partisan ideology into their classrooms. But you won’t find any “wokeness” at Hillsdale College. The Michigan liberal arts school remains firmly committed to its core curriculum rooted in the timeless truths of the Western tradition — and students appear increasingly drawn to that model.
Hillsdale Senior Director of Admissions Zack Miller told Fox News’ Mike Emanuel that Hillsdale’s application pool has ballooned by 53% over the past decade.
What’s more, Hillsdale’s yield rate — the percentage of accepted students who decide to attend—jumped from 47% in 2020 to 62% in 2022. Students who are accepted to Hillsdale are committing to come to Hillsdale, showing that they consider the school a top choice.
