Ian Fitzgerald ’22

  1. Ian Fitzgerald '22 headshotWhy did you choose HSC?
    I chose H-SC because it felt like home the first time I visited the campus. The people I met throughout my visits during high school made me feel as though I was already a part of the close-knit family that is the H-SC campus even before my freshman year.
  2. With what activities have you been involved at HSC?
    Throughout out my time at Hampden-Sydney, I have been a Wilson Leadership Fellow, a member of the soccer team, Wilson Center freshman peer advisor, Student Athlete Mentor (SAM), resident advisor, and a member of the Garnet & Grey Society.
  3. What have you enjoyed most about the Wilson Leadership Fellows program?
    The thing that I have enjoyed most about being a Wilson Center fellow is being exposed to all different aspects of leadership. Through lectures, forums, symposia, excursions, and interactive activities, I have been exposed to unique and exciting ways to lead people.
  4. How has the Wilson Leadership Fellows Program helped you grow as a person, student, or leader?
    The Wilson Center has helped me develop traits that make me a better person, student, and leader. I have learned to communicate well and to establish good relationships with the people you surround yourself with because without those two things, no substantial progress can be made on anything.
  5. What are your plans after HSC?
    I plan to pursue a law degree and an MBA.
