Hobart and William Smith graduates are working on big things—big as an avalanche, a dinosaur, the Constitution. They are working on very small things, too, like snowflakes and fish scales. In their careers, HWS community members embrace the full scope of nature and the environment, music and food, politics and economics, family and service. They are scientists, writers, architects, educators, musicians, filmmakers, business executives. They are innovators, researchers, investigators, activists. As they explore the microscopic and macroscopic, manage billions of dollars and millions of years, climb mountains and write history, these alums push the status quo of their fields. Collectively, they are scaling our perspective of the past, the identity of our present and the trajectory of our future.
