You'll be stressed, and getting through the Hampshire system does take a lot of work and patience, but if you put in the time you'll learn so much you can't even fathom it.

    A place where you dont' limit yourself to a major. We can look beyond, have great opportunities and a wide variety of classes in the five colleges. It is also a small community where the individual can become who they are meant to be.

    Hampshire College provides a unique educational experience for independent students whose drive for higher knowledge takes them in directions beyond the societal norm. It's progressive nature and unconventional academic process gives it a cutting-edge in modern collegiate education over institutions whose processes follow a more classical mold. It is a crucial and striving beacon for the progression of how we look at college.

    It is a small college. It's different from the typical stereotypical education. It can be a great match for some students but not so good for others.

    Hampshire College is the perfect place for people who consider themselves alternative learners. Small class sizes, personal evaluations, and dedicated professors make Hampshire a great place for learning. However, it's a very specific type of learning and doesn't work for everyone.

    I don't know if I'll be attending but I definitely am considering it now that I was accepted. I received a nice scholarship but no aid from Hampshire. Kind of a bummer but overall I really liked the diversity and quirkiness of Hampshire!

    Hampshire College was the perfect fit for me because it has allowed me to open my mind to anything and everything that I am interested in. Hampshire is a place of discussion, rather than just passive learning, and I have learned how to appreciate the knowledge I obtain due to the fact that we do not receive grades at Hampshire. Not only is Hampshire great academically, this school has also provided me with many tools and resources to find work, student groups, and excellent advising.

    Hampshire is a place of processes. The focus is not necessarily on how well you do something, but how you do it and more importantly, how you learn from it. The college encourages passions and interests.

    This is a school for unique, self-motiviated, and brainy students. You will meet a lot of artists, nerds, political activists, and freaky sort of students. It's a very welcoming school that can be as easy or as rigourous as you choose to make it.
