  • When Hamilton’s class of 2024 arrived on campus in August, 2020, it was in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, so many of the usual opportunities and experiences for new students were not possible. In an effort to make up for that, Hamilton this year offered sophomores the opportunity to take Adirondack Adventure trips during Fall Break.

  • Rain— and plenty of it — greeted new students and families, but that did not deter Hamilton’s orientation leaders from providing a raucous and warm welcome to members of the Class of 2025 and transfer students when they arrived on the Hill on Aug. 17 for move-in and new student orientation. Orientation continues through Aug. 25, then classes for all students begin on Aug. 26.

  • Members of Hamilton’s class of 2024 have arrived, moved in, and completed orientation, and upperclassmen have returned to the HiIl for a fall 2020 semester that will be remembered as unlike any other in Hamilton’s long history.

  • Members of Hamilton’s Class of 2024 began arriving on campus today to begin COVID-19 screening and move into their residence halls. Arrivals will be staggered across Monday and Tuesday, to allow for social distancing and minimized contact.

  • Forty-four members of the Class of 2023 and 10 transfer students arrived on a cold but sunny campus on Jan. 17 to officially begin their Hamilton experience and take part in new student orientation. The College offers January admission to roughly 45 students each year to fill vacancies created by students on leave and studying abroad.

  • From “Jam Camp” in Clinton to kayaking in the Adirondacks, Hamilton’s 61 orientation adventure trips helped ease members of the Class of ’23 into life at Hamilton. The five-day trips gave Hamilton’s newest students an opportunity to get to know their classmates and explore the area.

  • Hamilton College welcomes the 513 members of its Class of 2023 on Tuesday, Aug. 20, for nine days of Orientation.

  • New student orientation begins this week, and more than 100 student trip leaders are ready to welcome the newest Hamiltonians. The upcoming week of introductions and new experiences will lay the foundation for the first-year students’ Hamilton career as they embark on Adirondack Adventure, Exploration Adventure, and Outreach Adventure trips.

  • Five hundred plus new students adventuring on 61 overnight trips, overseen by 122 trained student leaders. How’s that for a logistical challenge?
