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.

A tentative orientation schedule is available now, and more information about this year's adventure trips will be available in late May. Students will receive instructions via mail about how to view trip options and submit preferences. In the meantime, you may browse information about past trips and review frequently asked questions on the Orientation Adventure Trip pages.

If you have further questions, please feel free to reach out via phone or email. 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
