    Parties are fun if it's your friends' but there is not a lot of just show up open house style parties. If they aren't registered they'll get shut down pretty quick. If you like a more chill brand of fun, there's plenty though. I love going for walks in the Hampshire woods. There are lots of old art projects and secret structures to find.

    Hampshire College is a main bus stop for three buses that can take you to Holyoke, South Hadley, Northampton, and Amherst. If you get bored on campus, it's pretty easy to go do things in town (like see a movie, go play laser tag at Hampshire Mall, or go see a movie). Chances are, you can also find any number of performances or sports games on or off-campus, and that's a great way to de-stress and have some fun.

    Their are a hundred of different Student Groups. Ultimate, Circus, Sports... if students like the outdoors and sports. There are also groups for people who are interested in comics, films, books... We also have the opportunity of the four other colleges, as they host student groups and events open to college students from the area.

    North Hampton is where everything happens. A huge town, with numerous stores, restaurants, art galleries and more. On campus, the best thing to do is walk around the woods, visit the reservoir. Breathe in the fresh air Amherst has to offer, and feel connected with nature. You can join one of the numerous crazy clubs, or just hang out with your friends in someones room. Oh, and the parties are great too.

    Hampshire College is part of a 5 college consortium, so if you cannot find a party, poetry reading or club on campus, you can get on the free bus system and travel to the center of Amherst, UMASS, Amherst College, Smith College or Mt. Holyoke College to check out the students and the action going on there. There is always something to do, people to meet, good food to eat, live music to listen to and a good time to be had.

    You can go on walks, the nature view outside is nice. The 5 college thing helps make finding parties at other colleges nice but there are ones on campus too.

    The best option for fun is to either hang out in a dorm or mod, or to adventure to another campus for a party. However, it's often boring, especially if you're the type of person who is from a city, is used to more action and adventure, parties, or doesn't enjoy spending their time just chilling out all the time.

    At Hampshire there are always a lot of events on campus. There are lectures all the time and a lot of different student groups offered for almost any interest you may have. If you are interested in something that is not offered, you can start it yourself! There are two big events: Hampshire Halloween and Spring Jam, which are both super fun campus events. There are also opportunities to get involved in sports teams!
