  • As far back as middle school, Eleanor Wefing ’23 loved working with people who have developmental disabilities. One big reason she chose Hamilton was its off campus-study program at the New England Center for Children, which serves people with autism.

  • Communications Office student writer Melissa “Aurelie” Kaleka ’24 attended a Know Thyself 101 workshop on Oct. 2. Here she shares her impressions.

  • A global pandemic didn’t stop Steve Kettig ’19 from successfully launching the SEO and digital marketing consulting company, Lead Sprout. Here he describes his path to his new career, with a little help from the Hamilton network along the way.

  • “Eleni’s dedication to her friends and family, to the Hamilton community, to the refugees she worked with over the summer in Greece…. comes not from a place of ticking something off a list but from a place of passion and compassion. She is all in: heart and mind. How she does anything is how she does everything. I feel confident that Leni will take that way of being into the world and do big things.” - Amy James, director of community outreach.

  • Since my first year at Hamilton, I have enjoyed my Geoscience and French classes. For a while, I considered the two subjects to be fairly unrelated subjects because while I hope to have a future in the environmental field, I had been pursuing French out of a purely personal interest.

  • As a rising Hamilton College sophomore, Lily Johnston ’16 spent the summer doing research on a fish parasite with a team of students and a biology professor, and the work was published in a scientific journal. The next summer she secured an internship, funded through the College, to work in New York City at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, where she promoted contemporary artists and met more than a few of them. Now, heading into her senior year, supported by a Hamilton Emerson grant, she’s doing a summer research project about color theory. With her penchant for academic exploring and pushing herself to try new things, Johnston says she’s certain she made the right choice when she picked Hamilton over an art school.
