Hobart and William Smith are small, residential Colleges where learning doesn't stop at the classroom door. Nearly all of the 2,300 students live on campus and many live in learning communities and theme houses that focus on community-building. Students hail from 40 states and 11 countries, speaking, in total, more than 30 languages, and 59 percent of students study abroad. As a result, the HWS community is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive student body. With an average class size of just 17 students and an 11:1 student to faculty ratio, students develop rewarding one-on-one partnerships with faculty mentors, often resulting in published papers or presentations at national conferences. HWS offers 45 majors and 65 minors. More than 60 percent of students create an independent course or major and many courses provide service-learning experiences, internships and job opportunities.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
