Long before Alexander Hamilton shot to fame (no pun intended) thanks to the hit Broadway musical, we claimed him as our favorite founding father.
Hamilton College’s roots date to 1793, when Hamilton agreed to serve as our first trustee. As you might know, Hamilton was more than an orphan and an immigrant who achieved prominence as a member of the Continental Army and as the first secretary of the treasury; he was a visionary, a persuasive writer and a critical thinker who helped shape the country we have today.
Those are the same skills we value and teach our students at Hamilton, one of the most highly-regarded liberal arts institutions in the world.
There is no one Hamilton student just as there is no one Hamilton experience. The promise we make to all our students is the same. At Hamilton, you can: Explore Your Passions, Expand Your Perspectives, Express Yourself, and Expect Opportunity.
