Trump University never died. It's located in the middle of bucolic southern Michigan, halfway between Lansing and Fort Wayne, 100 miles and a world away from Detroit.

It's a place called Hillsdale College, and on Saturday, May 12, Vice President Mike Pence will bless the right-leaning college's graduation ceremonies, delivering a commencement address to this year's 367-strong crop of mostly young conservatives.

Maybe you've never heard of Hillsdale. Or maybe you hadn't heard about the school before it precipitated a floor fight in the Senate during tax bill negotiations last fall. But the tiny Christian college with a graduate school in statesmanship, a strong conservative bent and roots in an anti-slavery Baptist church, has long been a treasured institution in right-of-center circles—known for its required classical liberal arts curriculum, its commitment to a principled conservatism, and its outreach in Washington, D.C.
