Hamilton College Reviews
I am happier than I ever thought I could be at this school. The people here are amazing it is a wonderful community and it is very easy to make meaningful relationships quickly. The professors are incredibly knowledgeable and understanding in most cases, and there are many in the administration you can reach out to. I have made the best friends I’ve ever had, met the love of my life, and became truly passionate in so many subjects. I feel very prepared for the world and very supported by this college. PLEASE visit if you’re interested. This school was such a hidden gem for me.
I love my school. Its a lot of work. The professors demand a lot from you, because they want you to learn and do well. I was a January admit, so me and 30 other January admits had the option to take classes in London out first semester. People who are jans do many different things, from work at home to study abroad. The transition to campus has been a little tough. The academics are much more rigorous here than they were in London. People here are generally welcoming and friendly but coming in mid year is a bit tough socially because many of my classmates had already gone through the making friends and figuring out what do to stage. Commons is generally good. It does get old after awhile, but its not too bad. It is worse having to walk in the next morning and awkwardly dodge your hook up from last night. The community here is great! Everyone is very supportive of one another. Many students go and support their friends in sports, or art shows, or plays, etc. Feb fest is a fun time of the year. For a week in February the school has all sorts of activities going on. They range from Mr. Hamilton (male beauty pageant), to chocolate tasting, to black light sledding, to cheering on the hockey team.
I have loved Hamilton so far. I am a sophomore here and these two years have been truly amazing. It really does feel like home for me. I get sad to leave and excited to return. The faculty love what they teach and really care about their students, which enhances the learning environment and makes it a lot of fun. You are able to explore different academic routes with the open curriculum, which is something I really cherish.
