Hamilton College is a private liberal arts college in Clinton, New York, United States. Founded as a boys' school in 1793, it was chartered as Hamilton College in 1812. It has been coeducational since 1978, when it merged with its sister school of Kirkland College. Hamilton is sometimes referred to as the "College on the Hill," owing to its location on top of College Hill, just outside of downtown Clinton.
One of the "Little Ivies," Hamilton was ranked 16th in the nation among National Liberal Arts Colleges in the 2013 U.S. News and World Report.
