arrangement that is now unique among American colleges. Even before they were known as Hobart and William Smith, the Colleges were known for taking chances on new ideas and people. Geneva Medical College (the precursor to Hobart) holds the distinction of graduating the first woman doctor, Elizabeth Blackwell, and the first Native American doctor, Peter Wilson, in the Unites States.

Student Life

Hobart and William Smith are small, residential Colleges where learning doesn’t stop at the classroom door. Many students live in deliberately designed Learning Communities that focus on shared, active learning by building bridges between what happens in and out of the classroom. From late night conversations in residence halls to political discussions over ice cream in the café, the HWS community never stops thinking, never stops learning and never stops questioning.

Residential Life Nearly all of HWS students live on campus in: • • • • •

7 co-ed residence halls 10 single-gender residence halls 22 theme houses 48 townhouses 5 fraternities

Religious Life at HWS

At Hobart and William Smith, we believe that the life of the spirit and the life of the mind need not be separate or mutually exclusive, but in fact may be profoundly interrelated and rewarding. Through Religious Life events, students can meet like-minded peers during a knitting circle, offer up a prayer, light a candle or join the Chaplain and friends for dinner at Pasta Night. St. John’s Chapel hosts Buddhist, Catholic, Episcopalian and Quaker services. The local community is also home to a variety of religious services, including Baha’i, Baptist, Jewish, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Unitarian.

Abbe Center for Jewish Life

Situated across the street from Geneva’s Temple Beth-El, the Abbe Center for Jewish Life provides the perfect location for cultivating relationships between HWS students and the Geneva community. Both a community center and a themed residence hall with a Kosher kitchen, the Abbe Center for Jewish Life hosts celebrations throughout the academic year. Programming is open to everyone regardless of cultural or religious background.

The Big, Green Idea

At Hobart and William Smith, light bulbs are going off over the heads of students, faculty and staff all the time – it just so happens that more and more of them are the eco-friendly, compact fluorescent variety. Since Colleges President Mark D. Gearan signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, not only has environmental awareness and activism been the focus of strong individual projects, but being green has become a collective effort that brings together an entire range of HWS community members, student organizations and academic disciplines.
