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.
Kimberly from Laurel, NY
Hamilton professors really care about teaching. The campus is gorgeous, though chilly in the winter. The open curriculum is amazing.
