Hamilton's new student Orientation is taking a new track this year as all 475 members of the Class of 2019 participate in “Adventure Trips.” Previously, incoming students had the option of participating in a pre-orientation Adirondack Adventure or Outreach Adventure trip. Last year a new option, Exploration Adventure, was added. 

This year all students are taking part in one of  65 trip options from beekeeping to building homes in Utica to kayaking Lake Champlain. After their five-day trip they’ll all return to the Hill for on-campus orientation programming.  Enjoy some photos from various trips and check back every day for more. Below is the video from move-in day. (See also: Welcome Hamilton College Class of 2019!)
