A full schedule, including a list of arrival day activities, parent programs and some adventure trip details can be viewed online and on the Hamilton App (App Store or Google Play Store).

Students accepted for January Admission 2017:  We hope you will join us for an Orientation Adventure Trip this August!  Jans who choose to participate in a trip will arrive on campus on Tuesday, August 16 and depart on the morning of Monday, August 22. On-campus housing will be provided for the evenings you are not off-campus with your trip group.
