Hamilton alumni are leaders in their professions, in civic life and in the academic world. That's not just good fortune — the College has been cultivating creative, responsible individuals for nearly two centuries.
Yet as successful as they become, graduates of Hamilton retain a strong bond to the College, to the people who remain and even to future generations of students. They contribute millions of dollars in scholarship aid, and they give countless hours of advice and counsel — take for instance the more than 3,000 Career Center volunteers who offer internships, mentoring opportunities, job-shadowing experiences and informational interviews to current students.
It matters not if their credentials include Fortune 500 CEO, state governor, civil rights activist or Tony Award-winning playwright, Hamilton alumni stay connected to this beautiful hilltop campus and return regularly to mentor the next generation of students.
