While the focus and activities of each trip differs, the core objectives are always the same:
  • To have a positive transition into college by making good friends and working with helpful, experienced leaders
  • To learn about Hamilton College, your peers, yourself and how it all fits together
  • To find out how you work in a group of fellow college students
  • To collaborate with people who might be different from you (kind of like college, eh?)
  • To provide opportunities for information-sharing and discussion about the College, including ways to get involved in service, outdoor adventures, or leadership during your Hamilton years.
