Dear Supporter of Liberty,
My name is Dr. Larry Arnn. I am the President of Hillsdale College — America’s premier college that accepts no government funding, even in the form of student grants or loans, and that requires all students to complete a one-semester course on the United States Constitution.
You might have heard about us from Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and other great conservative radio hosts.
Or you might have seen that Forbes Magazine now ranks Hillsdale the 60th best college in America, the 7th best college in the Midwest, and the #1 college in Michigan.
In fact, The Princeton Review ranks Hillsdale as the #1 conservative college in America.
I am writing to you because your past activities indicate that you are a well-informed American who shares our alarm that too many of America’s leaders appear to have little appreciation or understanding of America’s heritage of liberty and limited, constitutional government.
Liberty in America may well be on the brink of giving way to bureaucratic despotism.
That’s why Hillsdale College has launched one of its most ambitious undertakings yet . . .
For the first time ever, Hillsdale College is offering a no-cost 10 week online Constitution course based on the course Hillsdale College students must complete, in order to graduate:
Constitution 101 Schedule
This course on the U.S. Constitution will be offered online and at no charge to anyone who wants to understand and defend the timeless principles of liberty upon which our nation was founded!
“Constitution 101” began on February 20, 2012, and concludes the week of April 30. IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE, because it is archived online, you can take each course at your leisure. The course covers such topics as the Declaration of Independence and its connection to the Constitution.
It is my honor to teach the first class, “The American Mind,” and the final class, “The Recovery of the Constitution.” All of the classes will be taught by Hillsdale College professors the top teachers in their field and the same ones who instruct our students here on Hillsdale’s campus.
I am proud to be teaching part of our NEW Constitution 101 Course and hope YOU will be one of my students!
As Hillsdale’s President, I have devoted my life to education, helping students understand the meaning and history of the American founding.
After all, the Constitution is the supreme law of our nation, the framework by which our country should be governed. Its principles and structures are responsible for the greatest government in human history.
Like you, I see the coming months as pivotal in the history of our country. And I am deeply concerned about the future.
Will we as a nation succumb to bureaucratic despotism, or will we take a stand for liberty?
The century-old attack on the Constitution, that continues today, has threatened to undermine our hard-won liberties and is reducing American citizens to subservience to an ever-expanding federal bureaucracy.
That’s why Hillsdale College is committed to restoring and reviving the public’s understanding of the Constitution, once again making it the central focus of American government.
Americans are willing and eager to study and defend the founding principles that made our country so prosperous!
This re-awakening of national interest in the Constitution comes not a minute too soon.
