    Hamilton is a close-knit school where the professors and other students are always willing to help anyone in need with basically anything. The actual campus itself is beautiful and the food here is great, especially for college food. Additionally, the classes are challenging but most professors have office hours where they're willing to spend time going through your questions one by one.

    I go to school in a postcard; the campus is absolutely gorgeous! The teachers are warm mentors that often invite you to their homes for a meal and intellectual conversation. Hamilton College is a quirky private college nestled atop a hill, where you'll find the future business and government leaders as well as pre-meds and noir artists enjoying the weather together.

    Hamilton College is for you if you love to learn, if you are enthusiastic and outdoorsy. If you are looking for a homey, small school with a cute little town, look no further. Hamilton is a truly wonderful place.

    It is an expensive but worthwhile private institution. The professors are great and the food is good. The social life includes greek life, but isn't tied to it.
