    Hamilton College is a wonderful place that has many opportunities. Seek them out and try to seize them all. Taking advantage of opportunities like the Bristol Fellowship, study abroad programs, and club activities and programs are what make a Hamilton Experience special. Hamilton Collge is very challenging but what is more challenging is the lack of student of color on campus. Although it is a tight-knit community it can feel lonely at times. Find your friends and stick with them and never be afraid to visit the HEOP office.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Make sure you know what to do when (when to schedule an interview, complete the FAFSA/CSS Profile, submit midyear transcripts, etc.). You should also know about the Outside credit policy and how that may affect you (AP's, IB's, Dual Enrollment, etc.). I also definitely recommend applying via QuestBridge, as it is what got me so much aid.

    Even if you do a campus tour and info session, consider spending some time walking around the campus yourself -- its a great opportunity to meet current faculty and students! I'd also suggest checking out the dining hall because its a good idea to sample what you might be eating for the next four years.
