Wednesday, February 26, was no ordinary day. Hamilton celebrated STOP Day — 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 stopped in the Science Center atrium and KJ atrium to write postcards thanking donors for their gifts.
Income from tuition, room and board provides two-thirds of the cost of a Hamilton education. The difference is made up by Annual Fund gifts and income from the endowment.
