January admits are greeted in the Events Barn.
Hamilton provided a warm welcome to 65 new students on a bone-chilling, record-cold day as they officially became members of the Hamily and began new student orientation on Jan. 15. The Class of ’25 January admits arrived on campus, took a COVID test, and moved into their residence hall homes.
During the fall semester, the “Jans” kept busy. Many took part in the Hamilton Freshman Semester in London in partnership with Arcadia University, two participated in the School for Field Studies, one completed the Semester at Sea program, several worked or held internships, and a few took local or online classes.  They hail from 15 states, and China, Denmark, and Greece.

The newest students got busy immediately with orientation group meetings and matriculation in Buttrick Hall. In the coming days they’ll meet with faculty advisors, learn about Hamilton’s Honor Code, and have a little fun — a campus scavenger hunt, Trivia Night, and small group welcome activities. Spring semester classes for all students begin on Jan. 19.
