View 2016 Hostel Brochure


Attend a Hillsdale Hostel, a learning vacation unlike any other. Spend a week with some of Hillsdale College’s most distinguished professors exploring the great ideas and principles that built and sustain our country. Discuss the ideas that have created more freedom and raised the hopes and expectations of millions, not only in this country, but throughout the world.

We offer three locations to enjoy a Hillsdale Hostel – on the beautiful Hillsdale campus, nestled in the rolling farm country of southern Michigan; surrounded by the natural setting of our Rockwell Lake Lodge located at the G. H. Gordon Biological Station in Luther, Michigan; and in the heart of our nation’s capital at our Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship on Capitol Hill, just minutes from the Supreme Court, the Senate office buildings, and the historic Union Station.

Relive higher education as it used to be, in a place where it still is.

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.

Enjoy good food, private accommodations, and other fun activities.

Hillsdale Hostel offers a week of exciting activities. Guests share intense discussions with Hillsdale faculty members and fellow program participants, delving deeply into the sources of American liberty. Guests are welcome to take advantage of varying opportunities for fun, recreation, and fitness in our state-of-the-art health education and sports complex. Enjoy delicious, healthy, and plentiful meals prepared and served by the staff of our award-winning on-campus food service vendor. Sleep in air-conditioned comfort in the lovely Dow Leadership Center, Hillsdale’s on-campus hotel and conference center, a facility that offers quality accommodations you would not expect to find on a college campus!
