The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) is pleased to announce that Undergraduate Fellow Will Eagan has accepted an offer to pursue a doctorate in statistics at Purdue University.

AHI Undergraduate Fellow Will Eagan

Mr. Eagan, a 2011 graduate of Hamilton College where he majored in mathematics, completed a senior thesis in the physics department. Elected to Sigma Xi, a national honorary society that awards excellence in scientific investigation, he also served as president of the Hamilton College Republican Club and founded the Statistics Journal Club.

Eagan credits the AHI with educating him about the essentials of a proper liberal education. “I found the support to pursue the skills of a liberally education person at the AHI,” he observed. “The AHI helped me to hone my writing and oral communication skills, to appreciate civil debate, and to treasure the Great Books. Overall, I found the AHI to be one of the most rewarding parts of my undergraduate experience.”

“Before graduation, Will Eagan became something of a fixture at the AHI. His energy and passion for learning proved infectious,” commented AHI Charter Fellow Professor Robert Paquette. “At any given moment at the AHI, you might hear Will engaged in animated conversation about Leo Strauss, Aristotle, or Friedrich Hayek. He has a bright future ahead of him. The AHI fellows are very proud of him and his accomplishments.”
