Ties that bind: fostering a more constructive community

In the past few weeks, our campus has become irrationally divided, and, frustratingly enough, these differences are largely artificial. Yes, we all have different opinions, beliefs and backgrounds, but beyond all that we all share Hamilton as our temporary home. That, more than anything else, should be enough to unite, rather than divide, us in the face of individual differences. With the goals and hopes of the college in mind, we should be able to have intellectual diversity, creative differences and even arguments without tearing ourselves apart, and furthermore we ought to use these encounters with difference to better ourselves as a community. Whether you like or dislike any or all of your peers opinions, you also chose to create a community with them for a few short years. And communities above all work together to become better together; they do not give up and drift apart.

Senior Reflection: Time, Hootie and the Blowfish and The Best Sandwich at Hamilton

I leave you with advice I share every year during Adirondack Adventure, something that I believe exemplifies the application of effort in a “now” moment.  When life gets tough, grab a bagel, put peanut butter on one side, jelly on the other, add some Nutella, cheddar cheese and some meatstick, smash it together and enjoy.  And make sure to lick your fingers after you’re done.
