Information SessionInformation Sessions

Led by an admission dean, information sessions provide an opportunity to learn more about the College and to have your questions answered. Information sessions are held at the following times until December 1 (and select school vacation weeks in February):


People don’t join the Hamilton community for just four years; they belong for a lifetime. For many students, membership in that enduring community begins with the personal interview. Because the admission committee works hard to ensure “fit” when determining admission decisions, personal interviews are strongly encouraged. An interview provides us with a sense of your personal strengths and interests that may not be obvious in an application. It also gives you a chance to ask questions and learn more about Hamilton in a personal setting. 

Personal interviews are conducted by admission officers or Hamilton seniors who are carefully selected and trained for this purpose. On-campus interviews are available as follows:

  • Weekdays: 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.

To schedule an interview, we encourage you to call the Admission Office at 800-843-2655. Because our interviews are fully booked weeks in advance, try to schedule an interview well before your intended visit. We realize it isn't always possible to call during business hours and also offer a web/email interview request option through our campus visit registration form.
