    Almost too liberal. You need to have an open mindset at all times. The size of the student body is also small and not nearly as diverse as it should be, but neighboring UMass Amherst, Amherst College, Smith College, and Mount Holyoke College really do make up for the lack of diversity and resources that Hampshire doesn't have.

    An alternative learning environment for creative open minded students. The divisional system requires self motivation and direction but can be very rewarding. Faculty and staff are for the most part very understanding and enthusiastic about student work.

    Hampshire provides the most accessible academics, student life, and faculty anyone could ask for. The campus is beautiful, and any class you take is taught by a teacher that 1) truly cares about students and the subjects, and 2) is completely ready to help students succeed in whatever way possible. It's also great having access to the other colleges in the Five College system.

    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.

    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.
