Expand Your Perspectives
Let’s face it. Many people live in homogeneous communities where people look alike, think alike, and share similar life experiences. There’s comfort in that shared identity, but it limits growth and understanding. More than most organizations, colleges bring together people with different ideas and backgrounds. At Hamilton, we embrace that.
Learn from Each Other
Serious intellectual inquiry and informed engagement with our ever-changing world depend on open dialogue. We all deserve to have our viewpoints heard. Come to Hamilton prepared to share your opinions, challenge assumptions, and, yes, disagree respectfully. Alumni tell us the people they came to know on College Hill changed their lives and remain among their closest friends.
Try Something New
It may sound cliché, but at Hamilton you’ll find opportunities to “step outside your comfort zone.” In addition to meeting people from a variety of backgrounds, you’ll be encouraged to pursue different experiences on campus — like taking on a new hobby or leadership role in a club — or, when off College Hill, volunteering in the local community or taking on a service learning project across the globe.
Body & Mind
Part of the evolving process to “know thyself” is developing self-awareness and making choices aimed at achieving a healthy and fulfilling life. At Hamilton, you’ll find many resources designed to help you build a strong foundation of mental, social, and physical wellbeing.
