Hamilton offers three branches of orientation adventure trips that provide a fun and friendly atmosphere for easing new students into college life.
Orientation for all new students in the class of 2022 and new transfer students will begin on Tuesday, August 14 and run through Wednesday, August 22, 2018. Residence halls will open on August 14 at 8:30 a.m.
Orientation trip registration is now open, and completed registrations are due by June 10, 2018. Please feel free to browse some of the articles and videos on these pages, and the Orientation Trips pages for more information about Hamilton's required Orientation programming. Both orientation trips and on-campus orientation programming are required for all new fall admission students. We welcome and encourage new Jan Admits to join us in August for an Orientation Adventure Trip, too!

Optimizing Orientation Trips
Last fall, Chenchen Zhao ’18 took Linear Optimization, a mathematics course with Professor Sally Cockburn. Zhao and Cockburn are designing an integer linear program that places incoming students into orientation groups, with as many as possible getting their top choices.
