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.

Hamilton College Reviews
Living on-campus all 4 years is a little tricky and I wish I knew how much that impacted the type of fun you could have on the weekend.
Professors were all really helpful and I had some super interesting projects. I wish there was more focus or emphasis on technical skills in each department, which would have helped me with job prospects.
Fantastic career center. good people, bad administration, out-of-touch with students.
