    Life at Hamline

    At Hamline, you’ll join an intimate community of students in exploring life, values, activities, causes, community, and the world. Hamline students are: 

    • an intimate community of 2,007 students, part of a larger Hamline community of 4,700 students 
    • diverse (from 40 states and 39 countries; 24% of students are multicultural) 
    • smart (more than two-thirds receive academic scholarships) 


    Students who are involved tend to stay in school and have an easier time adjusting to college and life beyond the degree. Besides being fun, your involvement in student organizations can help you connect with friends, learn new skills, contribute to the campus community, and stay mentally alert and physically healthy. Involvement in student groups can also help you develop leadership skills and prepare you for your career. Hamline students participate in 83 different student clubs, organizations, intramural leagues, and club teams.

    Diversity is not merely a characteristic of Hamline, but an integral part of its identity and values. It’s who we are, what we do, and how we see the world. Hamline isn’t a place where you "fit in," conforming to the Hamline mold. Rather, Hamline "fits in" you, welcoming your unique contributions and valuing who you are.
