Diversity Overnight

September 22-24 or October 27-29, 2013

The Diversity Overnight program offers students of diverse backgrounds the opportunity to experience life at Hamilton College. Participants in the program will interview with a member of the Hamilton Admission staff and share in a variety of activities on Sunday. On Monday, they will have an opportunity to attend classes and participate in campus life as a Hamilton student.

Acceptance to the program is selective and priority will be given to those who have not already visited Hamilton. Students must be current high school seniors maintaining at least a cumulative B average in a college preparatory curriculum. If admitted, all costs for transportation, meals and lodging will be covered by the College.

To apply, please submit the on-line Diversity Overnight application and a copy of your cumulative high school transcript (unofficial copies are acceptable). Transcripts can be faxed, emailed or mailed to the admission office.  

At this time, we are no longer accepting applications for the Diversity Overnight program. If you wish to visit the campus this fall, our Visit Page will assist you.
