  • This semester I’m taking “Mormonism in America and the World” taught by Professor of Religious Studies Quincy Newell. I chose this class because I am interested in learning about a religion that is highly stigmatized and controversial.

  • Every fall, Hamilton’s Outing Club (HOC) sends groups of students to the Adirondack Mountains where they attempt to summit each of the 46 high peaks in one weekend. This year, there were 25 trips and five overnight backpacking trips. Student participants included 40 HOC leaders, 20 shadow leaders (as part of HOC leader training), and 51 hikers for a grand total of 111. This year, Hamilton students summited 39 of the 46 peaks.

  • Hamilton offers a plethora of opportunities for students to discover their passions. For Maura Calsyn ’95, it was a semester in Washington, D.C., that started her on her career path. Today she is deputy assistant secretary for health policy at the U.S. Department of Health Human Services (HHS) where her work deals with a wide variety of public health issues, including the long-term effects of COVID-19.

  • Ninety-five students spent their Saturday volunteering as part of Make A Difference Day organized by Hamilton Association for Volunteering, Outreach and Charity (HAVOC). This year, HAVOC sent students to seven different sites.
