Home at Hamilton is a two-day program designed for high school seniors from traditionally under-represented backgrounds, including (but not limited to) students of color, first-generation to college students, students from families with limited financial resources, and students from rural communities.

Home at Hamilton will provide an opportunity for students to experience our diverse community through conversations with current students and staff and learning about the opportunities we provide for all students. Admission to this program is selective. All participants will be provided overnight accommodations, and travel costs will be covered for those who require assistance.

2022 Dates: Sunday, October 2 – Monday, October 3

Please note that Hamilton College requires visiting students to be fully vaccinated (and boosted if eligible) against COVID-19 and participants should be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Proof of full vaccination will be required for all students participating. Program details are subject to change due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic as we want to ensure the safety of our community and visitors.

For those who cannot make it to campus, we are also providing a one-day virtual Home at Hamilton experience on: Sunday, October 23, 2022.
