New Hampton is a very small town. We get to see a lot of areas of the town and we go to outside a lot on Saturday extended block. Extended block usually is fun class that we do outside of classrooms.

It is really easy to make friends in this school because there are a lot of opportunities to meet people. We have social dinner every month when we have to wear dress and suits. They match you up with random people and it is so fun and it is a great chance to make new friends!

- Review Description
- William and Mary I'll say two, first the absolutely perfect layout of campus. You have majority of your classes right on academic row which makes the trip to classes easy especially in the winter when you're trying to. . .
- Hobart and William Smith One important aspect of the school is the technology. Due to the school's sponsorship each students get their own iPad which is set up to have grades, assignments, ways to take notes, textbook, and more. . .
- Hobart and William Smith Colleges I believe the overall feel of my school was the most unique part of it. Campus always felt like a big family. My teachers and dorm parents had no problem letting me do homework in. . .
