“Pamplin Society members reflect and inspire the College community as a whole,” said Tom Hochstettler, president. “Each student brings to the society and to the College high ideals and proven abilities as well as an exceptional blend of intellectual talent, personal integrity, pursuit of physical fitness, and the willingness to assume leadership roles both now and in the future.”
The society’s membership includes 21 students, more than 70 alumni, and 4 endowed professors. Membership is extended to seven students each year as they begin their second year at the College.
