Monthly Admission Email Message

Dear Student, 

Greetings from Hamilton's hilltop campus! While the Admission Team is busy finalizing decisions for the Class of 2022, we are also excited to welcome students for our Junior Preview Saturdays and other visit options

As you begin to plan your college visits and assemble your college list, let us know if you have any questions about what makes Hamilton distinctive. We look forward to getting to know you.

Sincerely yours,

T. Peaches Valdes
Dean of Admission

Hamilton's Unique Curriculum

One of the three promises that we make to students is that they are able to study what they love. Our open curriculum provides you with the academic freedom to explore the liberal arts on your own terms (and with help from our faculty advisors). Everyone is in class because they want to be there, not because they have to be there.

FebFest Late Nite Skate

FebFest Tradition

Moonlight snowshoeing, outdoor iceskating and sledding are all things that students do to enjoy winter on campus and celebrate FebFest. A tradition started back in 1925, FebFest also included indoor events such as a chocolate tasting, chili cook-off, and a comedy performance by the Lucas Brothers.

Showing Solidarity

Students from across campus, including the women's softball team, wore black after the college community received 70 emails from student groups about the Florida school shooting. Each email “urged every person to wear black to remember the victims and protest against gun violence.”

Standardized Tests

Hamilton's Flexible Testing Requirement

As you begin to study and plan your standardized exams, know that Hamilton applicants can submit the SAT, or the ACT, or three exams of your choosing (which must include a quantitative test, a verbal / writing test, and a third test of your choice).
