STOP - Starting Today Others Pay

On February 26, 2014, Hamilton celebrated STOP — Starting Today Others Pay — the day when the cost of operating the College for the remainder of the academic year is paid not by tuition and fees, but by income from gifts provided by alumni, parents and friends. Students, faculty, administrators, and staff were encouraged to take a moment on this day to thank our generous benefactors.
