At Hamilton, the quality of personal interaction that takes place in our classrooms, laboratories, studios and performance halls extends to our residences, dining halls, sporting venues, and to the casual conversations that take place whenever two or more people encounter one another. A student at Hamilton can be grungy, geeky, athletic, gay, black, white, fashionable, artsy, nerdy, preppy, conservative ... it doesn't really matter. At Hamilton you can be yourself – and be respected for who you are.


Diversity: Students hail from 45 states and 47 countries; more than one-quarter of the student body consists of U.S. students of color or international students

First-Generation Students in the First-Year Class: 15%

Public/Private School Students in the First-Year Class: 60/40

Male/Female Ratio: 48/52


Diversity expands the breadth and augments the rigor of the intellectual life of the College. Woven throughout Hamilton's curriculum is the study of the world's races, cultures, religions and ideologies.


Hamilton operates like a small city, but it has a feel of a close community. At Hamilton, we take care of each other.
