21 Alexander Hamilton Birthday Party Gatherings

In January the Hamilton Alumni Association gathered in 21 regions to celebrate the 249th birthday of Alexander Hamilton.  From 12 regional parties in 2004 and 10 in 2005, these celebrations have grown in scope, scale and content to the point where they can safely claim to be the College's "signature" Alumni Association social event.  Several components were added to the program mix in many cities this year, including showings of the video for Excelsior: The Campaign for Hamilton College, interaction with current students, Al Ham birthday cakes, trivia contests and prizes.    More ...

Volunteer Weekend 2006: April 7 - 9

Hamilton's annual Volunteer Weekend will be held April 7 - 9. As is our tradition, y, engaged alumni and parent volunteers use this weekend to review current business, conduct new business, interact with students and attend a variety of events.  Two of the groups that meet in the spring are the Alumni Council of Hamilton’s Alumni Association and the Parents Advisory Council. The weekend is also an opportunity for friends of the College to return to the Hill to reconnect with one another, meet with students and enjoy the wide variety of events that are staged for this year’s attendees.

Hamilton volunteers are critically important to advancing the work of the College. Each spring it is our honor to recognize these efforts. On Friday evening, the Alumni Council will present its Distinguished Service Award to retiring Professor of Anthropology Douglas A. Raybeck.

In recent years, it has also been our custom to offer a comprehensive program during Volunteer Weekend highlighting a particular aspect of the College's curriculum.  This year, we will celebrate the visual, studio and performing arts, which are of course central to a liberal arts experience.  We are also in the early stages of planning for building new facilities for the arts to meet the needs of our students and faculty members

As you will see on the schedules, features of the weekend include Council meetings complimented by theatre and dance workshops with accomplished alumni, faculty members and students and a symposium on political cartooning with prominent syndicated cartoonists.

It is most helpful if attendees register for events. An "easy to use" alumni registration site is hyper-linked below. Please register if you plan to attend, and join us as we celebrate the efforts of Hamilton's alumni volunteers and discover the arts at Hamilton.  More ...
