As a residential liberal arts college, Hamilton recognizes and values the learning opportunities that occur when living with peers in a small community. The Office of Community Living coordinates both the logistical (e.g. room changes, housing selection) and educational aspects of Hamilton’s residential system.

Arriving at college can be daunting for first-year students. Luckily, Hamilton’s Community Advisors (CAs) make the transition that much easier and help new students feel comfortable on campus. But for one CA, this job is about making Hamilton truly feel like home.
