Class Giving Cups
Annual Fund Cup awards are a longstanding tradition at the College. Each year, following the completion of the fiscal year, individual classes are recognized for accomplishments that set standards for other classes to emulate. All but the President’s Cup are named in honor of an Annual Fund volunteer who provided exemplary service to Hamilton.
