College of choice: Learn Freedom and Faith on Campus

Hillsdale College is out of step with much of what goes on at American Colleges and universities.

Our students, do not demand “safe spaces” where their views can go unchallenged. Nor do they seek to deny the speech rights of fellow students, professors, or guest speakers with whom they disagree.

Hillsdale College is committed, by its Articles of Association, to provide “sound learning” essential to preserving “civil and religious liberty”—in other words, a liberal arts education that proceeds by free and open discussion.

Another way Hillsdale is out of step today stems from its commitment, also in its Articles of Association, “to teach by precept and example the essentials of the Christian faith.”

In keeping with this, the College is building a grand and beautiful chapel, called Christ Chapel, in the heart of campus. It’s named after the Philadelphia church where many of America’s Founding Fathers worshiped during the Continental Congress. It will provide a much-needed place of worship for all Hillsdale students, regardless of denomination.

What is the strangest thing ever taught to you by a science teacher?

By: Abooma Lacani, works at Medicine and Healthcare

My high school science teacher was discussing the properties of gases. When he was talking about their flammability, he paused, chuckled slightly and continued on with the lesson. A short time later, he stopped and asked if we had any questions. A classmate asked “what were you laughing about?” He was reluctant but several of us chimed in and he relented, telling us how he discovered “our" gases were indeed, flammable too.

My teacher had been a youth camp counselor during the summer before he started college. While he had not much experience in science, he enjoyed sharing what he knew with the boys under his supervision. One evening he heard an argument among them and made his way to investigate. The boys were divided as to whether or not our bodily gases were flammable. He laughed and told them he didn't think so and directed them to get in their bunks. As they were doing so, one of the boys said he could prove our gases were indeed flammable. My teacher said as he pondered for a brief moment as to how this could be proven, the boy pulled down his pajamas, struck a match, and for a few moments turned himself into a human blow torch!

He said that this memory is bittersweet because it was so funny and dangerous at the same time. Yes, the matches were quickly confiscated but the boy went unpunished as he could not bring himself to report the incident.

That is how I learned we can produce flames. Thanks for the memories Mr. Babb. R.I.P.

This brings back memories. As a kid, I once lived in a house that had a bathtub, and I distinctluy remember me and Dad going in with a plastic container and a syringe, filling the container with water and turning it upside down, using it to capture our underwater farts, sucking them out of the container with the syringe, and then blowing them out on a lit match.

Also, fart-lighting never really seemed to me to be an unknown possibility around here. Knew plenty of other kids who did it, but I have to praise Dad for the absolutely genius method he came up with.

I never thought I could get emotional over lighting farts on fire but that actually sounds like a cool time with your dad.

Soo cool on a couple of levels. First it is the best explanation of how dragons breath fire. Second it's one of the few cow jokes Gary Larson missed; the Cow-o-magic flatulance flame thrower!

This is awesome. You've inspired me to do this with my boy who is at the absolute perfect age for this. Thank you.

Words ought to be a little wild for they are the assaults of thought on the unthinking.

“Many Americans complain about the loss of freedom in our country today, but Hillsdale College is actually doing something about it. Hillsdale College is the finest educational institution in the nation.”
