  • Hamilton Series an opportunity for international students to explore city

    For a group of international and exchange students, Friday’s Supercrawl festival was a perfect welcome to Hamilton.

    The annual celebration of arts and culture on James Street North is one of a number of destinations for this year’s Hamilton Series.

    The program, launched last year with support from the Student Life Enhancement Fund, introduces students to their new home through a series of excursions and lectures.

    This year’s program includes a trip to the Art Gallery of Hamilton, a hike through Princess Point, a canoe trip around Cootes Paradise and a tour of City Hall.
