Get Involved

There are a number of ways you can help Hillsdale College excel as a unique institution of higher learning and succeed in its ongoing initiatives to reach others around the nation with information ranging from admissions to Imprimis, and from K-12 education reform to programs for constitutional studies. We would welcome your good efforts on Hillsdale’s behalf.

Share Imprimis

You can help share our monthly speech digest, Imprimis, with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.

When you refer someone to our mailing list, we will send them Imprimis free of charge. This is made possible by the donations we receive from alumni and friends, along with grants from foundations, that help us disseminate this vital speech digest, one of the largest publications of its kind in the nation.

Hillsdale College plans to increase Imprimis circulation from its current 2.5 million readers to three million. We thank you in advance for your part in this! Please use our online form to add others to Imprimis, or mail names and addresses to:

Mrs. Wanda Oxenger
Imprimis, Hillsdale College
33 East College Street
Hillsdale, MI 49242

To add names by telephone, please call toll free: (800) 437-2268.

Recommend Prospective Students

Hillsdale College’s Office of Admissions is staffed by knowledgeable and professional admissions counselors, many of them Hillsdale alumni, who stand ready to answer questions, provide informational materials or arrange a campus visit. If you know of high school students who are beginning to look at colleges, please consider sharing their names with Admissions.

To mail us a student’s name, home address, name of high school, class year and academic interests (if known), our mailing address is:
