M.A. Student

Sandpoint, Idaho


B.A. New St. Andrews College, Liberal Arts & Culture, 2023.

“I came to Hillsdale because it was one of the only colleges still interested in educating students. I've most enjoyed the discussions with professors and students, both in and outside of class. Iron sharpens iron, and the healthy level of debate here is refreshing. ”


Aidan grew up in north Idaho, and during his four years in the Marine Corps, including deployments to Australia and Okinawa, he began re-discovering the classical western tradition, and found he had a deep enjoyment and appreciation for its works. Upon leaving the military, he received his bachelor’s degree at New Saint Andrews College in Moscow, Idaho, where he encountered writers such as Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, John Calvin, Thomas Hobbes, and others. Wanting to pursue further study on the great thinkers of the Western tradition, he enrolled at Hillsdale to pursue a Master’s degree.
