This guy goes on adventures like it’s his job. Because it is.

Scott Schomlesky, Hampden-Sydney’s Director of High Adventure
Only the toughest of hombres can sit on a canoe like this.

How much do we care about introducing our students to the great outdoors? So much that we actually hired a guy to do, well, that. Scott Schmolesky is a former outdoor guide from North Carolina who brought his fleet of kayaks and a knowledge of all things outside to the Hill to serve as Hampden-Sydney’s Director of High Adventure. Scott leads expeditions off-campus, facilitates our ropes course and climbing tower on-campus, and generally shows us how to do all kinds of cool stuff without looking like an idiot. Let’s just say if you’ve got an outdoor passion you want to pursue here, we know a guy.
