Staff & Office Hours


Chaplains are available for talking about important things happening in the lives of students and other members of the Hamilton community. If you are struggling with a relationship, going through a break-up, in conflict with your parents, having doubts about the life of faith, wondering about the meaning of life, or just looking to shoot the breeze for a minute or two, we are ready to talk with you about what’s on your mind.
