New Boathouse Ready in August

From its days in the 1980s as a fledgling club sport, rowing at Hamilton has been powered by the rowers themselves, first as students, then as alumni. The sport grew, attaining varsity status and success at the national level. Now, alumni rowers have pulled together for another victory — a new boathouse, made possible by gifts they raised and contributed over the past two years.

Just Ask ALEX

Faculty help students chart their academic course, and career counselors help them set off on their post-Hamilton journeys. Now ALEX (Advise, Learn, EXperience) offers students an innovative approach to connecting with experiential learning opportunities and support services outside the classroom.

Hamilton College's decision to move to a need-blind admission policy has transformed campus, making a Hamilton education accessible to the best possible students regardless of financial means.
