The Hamilton Network

Whether they serve as a corporate CEO, a world-renowned artist, or a civil rights pioneer, Hamilton alumni return to campus regularly, maintaining ties with former teachers and meeting with students in the classroom, the Career Center, or over a cup of coffee. And in the months following graduation, alumni are there again, welcoming recent graduates to a new city and helping them make personal and professional contacts that launch successful careers.

Outcomes Report

Each year, the Career Center surveys recent graduates to track their progress during their first year after Hamilton. The resulting report includes data about career fields and employers, where graduates are pursuing advanced degrees and postgraduate fellowships, as well as outcome information for each concentration.
