Dear students and families of the class of 2019,

Congratulations on your acceptance to Hamilton College! Orientation 2015 will take place from Tuesday, August 18 - Wednesday, August 26. A full schedule of Orientation activities is currently being planned to introduce you to the Hamilton community and prepare you for your time on the Hill.

Orientation consists of two parts: Adventure Trips and on-campus Orientation programming. This year, all new students will participate in a trip. Adventure Trips include Adirondack Adventure, Outreach Adventure and Exploration Adventure. We have more than 65 trip options this year; from beekeeping to building homes in Utica to kayaking Lake Champlain, our hope is that all students will find one (or many!) trips that appeal to them.

More information about arrival day, adventure trips, and a tentative orientation schedule will be available in the months to come. Please check back often, and feel free to reach out with questions in the meantime. We look forward to welcoming you to campus this August!

Best wishes,

Tessa Chefalo
Coordinator of Orientation and First-Year Programs

Orientation begins Tuesday, August 18
