Leaders Get Oriented

While incoming first-year students may have to wait until August for orientation, the excitement has already begun for some of Hamilton’s current students.

Largely student driven, past leaders mentor the next generation of student leaders during the week after final exams. Although they may not know who their incoming first-year participants may be, next fall's leaders use this week to hone their leadership skills and get a taste for their respective programs.  More ...

Life at Hamilton Begins With a Dangling Participle

Members of the class of ’16 are settling in to life on the Hill, classes have begun and the new semester is off and running.

Our dangling participle was not a grammatical error; it consisted of a rope, two harnesses, two people and total trust. Though slightly intimidating, rock climbing at Chapel Pond in the Keene Valley was one of the best ways to begin college. Adirondack Adventure helps people make friends, try new things, and break free of the initial fears associated with college.  More ...
