It looks like Hillsdale College might be starting to recover from it's long affliction of neoconservatism. A bright young sophomore helps to shed some light:

As a recent grad of Hillsdale ('10) its a pleasure to hear that they are coming around!

Hillsdale

Was or is neoconservatism there thick and pervasive, Mhatt2?

I've heard radio neocon sentinel Marked by the Beast Levin hail and wax on about Hillsdale. I gathered it was a breeding ground of neoconservatism.

Less Leviathan Levin and more comprehension of freedom at Hillsday nowadays, huh?

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

Still strong on Neoconservatism

But many more are actually doing some critical thinking about the stuff we have to read (the Constituition, Mises, Hayek, and Bastiat). Those students realize both the rationality and practicality of a Libertarian or Libertarian-leaning approach to Constitutional Conservatism. The policies and atmosphere of the school are very conservative, in the true sense of the word, and there is nothing in the curriculum itself that condones neo-conservatism. I suspect that the talking heads jumped on Hillsdale's bandwagon for their own financial and political gain; unfortunately, complacent donors, students, and their families were slowly, and perhaps willingly, brainwashed by an amalgam of "patriotic" rhetoric, true conservative principles, and fear. This evolution has lead to a pseudo- parasitic relationship between the college and "conservative" media. I appreciate that they (Levin etc.) endorse the school, any real conservative, constitutionalist, or libertarian should; however, I also believe that they add a lot of "baggage" and significantly diminish the school's true message of constitutional liberty.
