 Michael Weinzierl ’15
A School of Fish

Although he’s studying barracuda and schoolmaster snappers with the Cape Eleuthera Institute (CEI) in the Bahamas, Michael Weinzierl’s ’15 summer research often feels more like a vacation.

John DeGuardi '16 and Allie Eckert '15
DeGuardi ’16 and Eckert ’15 Research Organic Radicals

John DeGuardi ’16 and Allie Eckert ’15, both chemistry majors, are researching ‘organic radicals’ with Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein this summer. Generally, the students explain, electrons are paired within an atom and have opposing spins that help stabilize the atom. A radical, however, is an atom with an unpaired electron in its outer shell. Since the electron in the outer shell does not have a counterpart, the atom is unstable and highly reactive.  More ...

eXploration Adventure: Inaugural Year for Interest-Specific Pre-Orientation Program

For the past 30 years, Hamilton’s Adirondack Adventure (AA), part of the optional first year pre-orientation program, has helped students grow as individuals and find their place at the College.

The newest pre-orientation program, eXploration Adventure (XA), offers students the opportunity to explore a topic about which they are passionate.  More ...
