Sally Kral '10
Sally Kral '10 is Named Hamilton's Tenth GOLD Scholar

Thanks to the generous support of its young alumni, Hamilton College is pleased to name Sally Kral '10 of Montclair, N.J., as its tenth GOLD Scholar.  If you come to campus, you might find Sally hanging out in the WHCL studios hosting one of her two radio shows "Tomorrow Never Knows" or "Oh, Oh, It's Magic," but that's only if there's no live music on campus. Whether it's a campus band, the College Choir or the next show hosted by the Independent Music Fund, Sally's bound to be there. If she's not listening to music, she's probably talking about it. "Arguing with my friends about music might just be my favorite activity," she says with a smile. "Though we could argue about nearly anything and it would be fun."  More ...

Aminata Diop '11
Sokhna Aminata Diop '11 is Named Hamilton's Ninth GOLD Scholar
Thanks to the generous support of its young alumni, Hamilton College is pleased to name Sokhna "Aminata" Diop '11 of Dakar, Senegal, as its ninth GOLD Scholar.  Aminata's talent as a writer brought her halfway across the world.  After impressing a high school teacher with her essay response to Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, the teacher suggested that she apply to Hamilton. So without visiting, she made Hamilton her first choice and, to her surprise, was accepted.  She arrived on a "chilly" summer day, but has since found warmth and comfort in good friends and Pub lunches.  More ...
Stephen Fuchs '68
Media Violence and the Next Generation: What our children really learn
Stephen Fuchs '68, rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford, Conn., will present an Alumni College during Reunions '08 about his campaign against violence in media. Tragic events like the shootings at Columbine, Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University, are, Rabbi Fuchs believes, the direct result of the growing and ever more graphic depictions of violence that children grow up with in television programs, movies, and video games. More ...
Stephanie Ryder '09
Stephanie Ryder '09 is Named Hamilton's Eighth GOLD Scholar
Thanks to the generous support of its young alumni, Hamilton College is pleased to name Stephanie Ryder '09, of Brooklyn, NY, as its eighth GOLD Scholar.

Steph came to Hamilton in 2005 from a large New York City public high school, ready to devote her time to academics and varsity women's ice hockey. Her athletic ambitions changed direction, however, and she now captains the New York State Division III women's rugby team, represents her class on the Judicial Board, works as an intern in the Athletic Department, and acts as a student representative to alumni and parents on behalf of the Annual Fund. Each of these activities formed the basis for her unique Hamilton experience and prepared her for success off the Hill. More ...
