Hamilton is a national leader in teaching students to write effectively, learn from each other and think for themselves. Hamilton College was founded in 1793 as the Hamilton-Oneida Academy; chartered in 1812 as Hamilton College; and is the third oldest college established in New York State. Hamiltons 1,350-acre campus is situated on a hilltop overlooking the picturesque village of Clinton. The College is eight miles southwest of Utica, 45 minutes east of Syracuse, one hour from the Adirondack Park to the northeast and 90 minutes west of Albany. At Hamilton, where faculty-student advising matters, we provide academically focused students an individualized education characterized by intense student-faculty interaction, an emphasis on oral and written communication, and the ability to make thoughtful choices about their intellectual pursuits. The academic program is rigorous with two defining characteristics: No Distribution Requirements _ students take courses because they are interested in the subject, not to fulfill a requirement; and The Writing Program _ communicating well is so important to ones future that all Hamilton _students are required to take three writing-intensive courses.
