Hamilton is one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges. It is independent, highly selective, coeducational and residential. Originally founded in 1793 as the Hamilton-Oneida Academy, Hamilton is today composed of 1,850 diverse and talented students from nearly all of the 50 states and approximately 40 countries. More information can be found at www.hamilton.edu/about.
In 2015, building on the success of the Adirondack Adventure and Outreach Adventure pre-orientation programs, Hamilton will expand new student orientation to include opportunities for all incoming first-year students to participate in a small group adventure experience. Currently, approximately two-thirds of first-year students participate in Adirondack or Outreach Adventure.
Reporting to the Assistant Dean of Students for Residential Life, the Assistant Director of Orientation and First-Year Programs will develop and implement Hamilton’s “Exploration Adventure” orientation module, which will accommodate the remaining one-third of the first-year class. In addition to Exploration Adventure responsibilities, the new position will assume duties related to coordination of the on-campus portion of new student orientation, and manage other activities related to the newly launched (in fall 2014) First-Year Experience program. The addition of this position signifies Hamilton’s commitment to a universal orientation program for all members of the first-year class, and the College’s desire to create a more seamless and enhanced transition to college through the First-Year Experience.
