Welcome to Opportunity Programs

Edited by Opportunity Programs student Rico Welch '14

We are excited about the opportunity to work with you over the next four years as you strive for excellence. Our mission is to provide you with tailored personal and academic support that will help you build lifelong habits and skills that will always be a positive resource for you.

As you prepare to come to Hamilton, think of your possibilities and the opportunities that you can create. Your personal ownership of this opportunity, as well as the support of our dedicated and resourceful staff, will pave the way to your success. There will be challenges, but with the proper preparation they will not be insurmountable.

We offer comprehensive services that address your academic, social and personal needs. Our staff works diligently with all departments of the College to ensure that you have access to any type of support you may need.

Our doors are always open, and we extend to you our friendship, a shoulder to lean on, a hand to hold, a hug, a cheering section and your personal fan club. Most importantly, we offer our expertise and experience, without reservation or judgment. Our goal is to help you do more than get through Hamilton: Our goal is to help you be excellent!

In 2014, the Opportunity Programs at Hamilton College marked 45 years of success and contributions to this community. We welcome you to our family!
