Cydney McKeel

Ph.D. Student

East Lansing, Michigan


B.A. Hillsdale College, Political Economy & Mathematics, 2022.

“I returned to Hillsdale for grad school because I knew they wouldn’t teach me to imitate their point of view, but instead would expect me to think through complex ideas and arrive at my own conclusions.”


Cydney grew up in Michigan and graduated from Hillsdale College in 2022 with a degree in Mathematics and Political Economy. During her junior year, she participated in the Washington Hillsdale Internship Program and worked for The Trinity Forum and Capital Research Center. This, in conjunction with Dr. Arnn’s class on the Nicomachean Ethics, cemented her interest in politics and guided her decision to pursue a graduate degree.
