Midterm survival kit: Self-care habits to consider

After a few weeks into the semester, college students can easily feel overwhelmed by the never-ending essays and midterms that all professors seem to schedule for the same time. Especially with the addition of other campus responsibilities, it’s important to remember how to indulge in self-care and relaxation. More ...

Pants for Pete: Review of the Performer's...Fashion Sense

CAB came through this year. If you haven’t heard yet or didn’t go, Pete Davidson came to Hamilton last Wednesday and it was an absolutely hilarious comedy show. Davidson is one of the featured players on Saturday Night Live. He is best known for being the youngest on the show and for being from Staten Island.

You've got mail

At a place like Hamilton College, home of one bookstore and a bunch of trees on campus, students don’t have wide access to buy things they may want or need.

Democratic Discussion: Lessons from 2016

It is reasonable to prophesize that 2017 is going to be a year of drama and uncertainty. Ever since the political shake-up sent a shockwave across the country, there has been no lack of political movements and clashing of opinions. From the controversial decisions made by our new president during his first week of office to the anti-abortion right rally in Washington last week, these events brought unsettling news. Unfamiliar with America’s complicated political landscape, I was nevertheless impressed by the actions taken by such diverse groups of people to defend the values they believe in. More ...

Mr. Right for Mr. Hamilton

With the atrocities that we call an upstate New York winter finally hitting hard enough that Hamilton students are refusing to leave their beds, except for the occasional meal or participation-heavy class, FebFest has come to the rescue. To start off the week-long celebration, Social Traditions held their annual Mr. Hamilton pageant the evening of Monday, Feb. 13.  More ...
