It’s spring break of my first year at Hamilton, when I had expected to be home in British Columbia. Instead, I’m having dinner at Dick Tantillo’s home on campus — and it feels like I’m with family.
Be Who You Are
We Take Care of Each Other
It’s inevitable. You will meet some of your closest friends at Hamilton — friends who will be part of your life forever. And throughout the course of your four years on College Hill, you’ll also encounter students who will experience significant challenges and even some hardship. But, at Hamilton, we watch out for one another — we are a community that takes responsibility for each other.
The Hamilton College community gains strength from the diversity of its members. The expression and consideration of differing viewpoints represent education at its best. In our efforts to cultivate an inclusive environment, it is essential that we seek to respect the unique perspectives of individuals on our campus. Students are encouraged to consider the implications of their words and actions. It is a reality that in any diverse community, misunderstandings and conflicts might arise. To work through these disagreements, we as a student body promote engagement in dialogue to create mutual understanding and expanded knowledge. With this in mind, we urge each student to help promote a welcoming community for all. (Adopted by the Student Assembly)
