Hobart and William Smith Colleges are a future-focused liberal arts and sciences institution led by a faculty of accessible teacher/scholars known for the impact of their research and distinguished by the depth of their mentorship. Founded as two institutions - Hobart for men and William Smith for women - today's Colleges enjoy the exponential benefits of shared resources and combined spirit. Both maintain their own traditions, deans and athletic programs but together share a single administration, faculty, campus and curriculum. Located in Geneva, N.Y., a small, diverse city in the Finger Lakes Region of New York, the Colleges have an enrollment of approximately 1,800 students, and offer undergraduate, pre-professional and graduate programs. Students complement broad, interdisciplinary study with hands-on learning experiences made possible by a constellation of centers for experience, action and thought.
