• On Sunday, June 25, the New York City Pride Parade took place on the streets of Manhattan, celebrating sexuality and advocating for social and political change. Among the hundreds of thousands of attendees were 32 Hamilton students on a trip organized by the Days-Massolo Center (DMC) and Gender and Sexuality Union, whose planning and funding made this opportunity possible for the second year in a row.

  • On the first day of Gov 249, Survey of Constitutional Law, Professor Philip Klinkner asked my class what we were most nervous about. As we went around the room, it became clear that almost everyone was concerned about one assignment: the moot courts. 

  • Kate Burnham ’23 won the top prize in the Oral Communication Center’s Three Minute Thesis Competition on April 29. The sociology major’s topic was “What Does it Mean to be Spicy Smart? Elucidating the Experiences of Students with Learning Disabilities at an Academically Rigorous College.”

  • Student writer and Untitled@Large theatre club member Alyssa Samuels ’25 shares her experiences producing the Suddenly the Musical, which debuted at Hamilton this spring. The Events Barn stage lights glowed brightly on April 27, illuminating the shapes of actors moving to the music and smiles from the audience surrounding them. Suddenly the Musical, an Australian show, was performed for the first time without its original cast at Hamilton. Produced by the student group Untitled@Large, the show was special not only for premiere status, but also because every step of its process signified a chance for student growth and accomplishment.

  • The Hamilton College Theatre Department presents the spring mainstage production, Rent, by Jonathan Larson, directed by Professor of Theatre Mark Cryer. Performances of the sold-out musical continue April 19 to April 22 at 7:30 p.m., and April 22 at 2 p.m., in the Romano Theatre in Kennedy Center for Theatre and Studio Arts.

  • Four students were awarded prizes in three categories in the annual Public Speaking Competition held on March 4. Presentations were either persuasive or informative in nature, and in one category, students addressed an assigned topic.

  • Eliza Pendergast ’24 is one of the student interns behind Hamilton’s recently launched GIPHY channel. She shared what it’s been like to be part of the team that brought these animations to Instagram Stories everywhere.

  • Get to know a few members of the class and the courses they loved, their favorite campus meals (it’s a breakfast bunch!), and how they spent their first months on College Hill.

  • Applause rumbled as the Tolles Pavilion shook. My vision readjusted past the blazing bright lights as I scanned the crowd. Joyful eyes and smiles. Raised arms and cheers. I don’t remember breathing in those moments, but I remember what I felt. I was in a state of pure wonderment as I fixed the microphone back to the stand.

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
