I Love the Hill Month

 

For 150 years we have built a legacy of excellence here on the Hill, and you are part of that success. This College's special character endures because of our dedicated community of alumni, students, professors, parents, staff and friends who share a love for the Hill.

 

I Love the Hill month is a celebration of all of those reasons, and we want you to be a part of it!
