Kara Novak '08
Hamilton Names Kara Novak '08 as Second GOLD Scholar
Hamilton College is pleased to name Kara Novak, a junior from Carthage, N.Y., as its second GOLD Scholar.  Novak is a double major in math and music - a path that she feels Hamilton offers with particular skill. As a prospective student, Kara had considered other colleges with similar courses of study but discovered that the more arts-oriented schools would not offer her a full complement of math courses and technically oriented schools would not allow her to pursue music as fully as she wished. Enjoying music, math and the qualities that they share, Novak hopes to incorporate mathematics principles into her senior-year music thesis. More ...

Alexander Hamilton’s Birthday Celebrated in Grand Fashion

Alexander Hamilton, according to many scholars, would have turned 250 years old on Thursday, January 11, 2007.  The academic debate over Hamilton’s actual birth year did not deter the more than 1,000 alumni, parents and friends of Hamilton College from celebrating his bi-sesquicentennial anniversary at regional alumni association events around the world.

Beginning on Saturday, January 6 in Richmond, VA and continuing through Sunday, January 14, in Westchester County, NY, 27 parties were held.  Many of these featured birthday cakes, some with elaborate reproductions of Hamilton’s likeness.  Contests were held to determine who knew the most about the life and work of our College’s namesake and all the Hamilton family universally enjoyed honoring the memory of a great statesman, philosopher, economist, military leader and trustee of our most extraordinary College.    More ...
