August 20–28, 2019

Hamilton’s orientation programs help you transition to the College community while meeting new friends and learning about opportunities to get involved in service, outdoor adventures or the rich culture surrounding College Hill during your Hamilton years.


We look forward to welcoming you to campus in August 2019. Orientation for all new students will begin on Tuesday, August 20.

New Student Orientation for incoming first-years and new transfer students will begin on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, and residence hall move-in will also take place on that date. 

Orientation runs through Wednesday, August 28, and includes two required components: Orientation Adventure Trips and on-campus orientation programming. 


 If you have questions, please contact Tessa Chefalo, director of Orientation, at tchefalo@hamilton.edu or by phone at 315-859-4846. We look forward to welcoming you to the Hill!

We interview our newest students amid all the energy and activity of Move-in Day on the Hill. Welcome, #hamilton2022!!
