Ben Moody ’15

Ever since his first visit, Ben Moody knew that Hamilton was the right place for him. “I chose to come here because I got a vibe from being on campus that I didn’t get anywhere else.”

Now a sophomore, Moody is doing his part to contribute to that Hamilton “vibe.” He serves as president of the Ping Pong Club and as a member of the Bridge Club and the Ultimate Frisbee team.

As a proposed double major in math and physics, Moody is excited about his academic career and the “accessibility and helpfulness” of his professors — something he believes sets Hamilton apart from other colleges and universities. “I have always gotten the feeling that all the faculty want me to succeed,” the native of Holliston, Mass., said.

Moody plans to pursue graduate studies after Hamilton and possibly a career in education. Still, he is largely undecided about his post-graduation path. After all, with two-and-a-half years to go at Hamilton, there is no doubt that many new doors will open for him. “Without the support of Hamilton donors, my family would not have been able to afford to send me to this school,” he said.
