As far as varsity sports are concerned, Hamilton students go all out. The intimate size of Hamilton means each student will have a friend, roommate, or classmate on each and every team. Friends are the main supporters of athletes, and friends are willing to come out and get fired up. A group called the Dog Pound is the most well known of group of supporters, though. It’s hard to miss their screaming and their brightly painted chests.
Intramural sports play a gigantic role in the social and athletic lives of most Hamilton students. Competition is high during these events, and during certain IM seasons, IM games are all you will hear about. The IM season is run by students, so it can become disorganized, but students make the most of it and have a great time.
