Class of 2006 Senior Gift
2006 Senior Gift Campaign Achieves 60% Participation   The tradition of the Senior Gift is alive and well in the class of 2006. The class blew past their December 9 objective of 50% participation, achieving an unprecedented 60% giving rate ahead of the 2005 winter break.  The effort of the Senior Gift Committee, under the tireless stewardship of co-chairs Zoë Baldwin ’06 and the Katrina Fredlund ’06, supported class results that exceeded expectations and set up the potential for extraordinary and perhaps record-breaking success this spring.   Each year since 1982, the senior class has presented a gift to the College upon graduating. In October of this year, class members worked together to come up with ideas for meaningful contributions to the Hamilton community.  After a difficult voting process, the end decision was to support an internship fund in the name of the class of 2006.  The fund will provide a scholarship each year to an undergraduate who wants to pursue an unpaid internship but would be unable to do so without alternative financial support. The Office of the Dean of Students and Career Center will be responsible for overseeing the distribution of the gift over the years ahead.   Similar in concept to the Joseph F. Anderson ’44 Internship Fund, a strategic component of Excelsior: The Campaign for Hamilton, the class of 2006 Internship Fund holds the promise of being transformative for deserving students. The generosity of the class is emblematic of their enthusiasm and support for our College, and will generate an enduring and tangible legacy for the class as well as the recipients.       The Senior Campaign schedule is defined by four primary participation deadlines set around a generous challenge from the trustees.  This year their goals are to reach 25% by November 17 (completed), 50% by December 9 (completed), 75% by March 3 and 90 % by April 20.  This year, for the first time ever, the committee set the bar even higher with an ideal to achieve 100% participation by graduation.    If you’re interested in contributing to or have additional questions about the class of 2006 Internship Fund, please contact Dave Steadman ’03, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations, Regional Events, at dsteadma@hamilton.edu or 315-859-4898.  More ...
Richard Bernstein '80 Participates in USA Today Investment Roundtable

Bernstein, who was also on last year's panel of experts, predicts a carbon copy of last year's call: a flat, go-nowhere market. "Earnings will be OK, but the Fed will still be raising rates. As long as the Fed continues to tighten, there is a risk of the market being down," said Bernstein. More ...
