Aminata Diop '11
Sokhna Aminata Diop '11 is Named Hamilton's Ninth GOLD Scholar
Thanks to the generous support of its young alumni, Hamilton College is pleased to name Sokhna "Aminata" Diop '11 of Dakar, Senegal, as its ninth GOLD Scholar.  Aminata's talent as a writer brought her halfway across the world.  After impressing a high school teacher with her essay response to Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, the teacher suggested that she apply to Hamilton. So without visiting, she made Hamilton her first choice and, to her surprise, was accepted.  She arrived on a "chilly" summer day, but has since found warmth and comfort in good friends and Pub lunches.  More ...
Stephen Fuchs '68
Media Violence and the Next Generation: What our children really learn
Stephen Fuchs '68, rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford, Conn., will present an Alumni College during Reunions '08 about his campaign against violence in media.

Stephanie Ryder '09
Stephanie Ryder '09 is Named Hamilton's Eighth GOLD Scholar
Thanks to the generous support of its young alumni, Hamilton College is pleased to name Stephanie Ryder '09, of Brooklyn, NY, as its eighth GOLD Scholar.

Steph came to Hamilton in 2005 from a large New York City public high school, ready to devote her time to academics and varsity women's ice hockey. Her athletic ambitions changed direction, however, and she now captains the New York State Division III women's rugby team, represents her class on the Judicial Board, works as an intern in the Athletic Department, and acts as a student representative to alumni and parents on behalf of the Annual Fund. Each of these activities formed the basis for her unique Hamilton experience and prepared her for success off the Hill. More ...

Caitlin McGilley '08
Caitlin McGilley '08 is Named Hamilton's Seventh GOLD Scholar

Thanks to the generous support of its young alumni, Hamilton College is pleased to name Caitlin McGilley '08, of Northfield, NJ, as its seventh GOLD Scholar.

Caitlin's Hamilton experience began in 2004, but it wasn't until the fall of 2007 that she realized one of her greatest triumphs: helping the Hamilton Women's Soccer team beat previously undefeated Williams in NCAA Division III sectional semifinals.  With the cards stacked against the Continentals, McGilley, Hamilton's fearless goalie, made eight saves ensuring a 2-1 victory on Williams' home pitch that left the Ephs wondering what happened.  A crowning achievement on a great Hamilton career, the victory is emblematic of Caitlin's poise, competitive spirit and character.  More ...
