For New Students

Open up; look around; take it in; make it yours.

The Hotchkiss experience is all about discovery — a process that can be transformative, exhilarating, and sometimes challenging. Here’s what current students, faculty, and staff have to say about how to meet those challenges and make the most of your time at Hotchkiss.

Getting Ready for Hotchkiss

In addition to required placement tests, transcripts and forms, all new students also have a chance to tell us about themselves to help inform decisions about roommate and academic advisor assignments.
