Hampshire College Reviews
For sure take a class with Will Ryan and Dr. Laura Greenfield. They will change your life. Very active beautiful minds at this school. Very liberal arts PC call out culture so be ready to learn and be humble. Beautiful campus. I wouldn't come here to brag or for compitition or for nice buildings but if you want intellectual stimulation like no other, caring people, to be challanged, and the adventure of a lifetime in a weird hippie place Hampshire is for you!
I made good use of Hampshire's academic flexibility and I really did enjoy putting together an Advisory committee to oversee my DIV II & DIV III Theses. Hampshire is "graduate school for undergraduates." It's not diverse, which I found frustrating, being from NYC, but I spent quite a bit of time off campus. After I graduated, I found that Hampshire has a GREAT reputation among Grad Schools, I got accepted to every single Master's program I applied to.
Hampshire is well-placed, with 4 other colleges in the area, so students can always find classes that suit their interests and work with their studies. The academic program is built so that students are in charge of creating a major and minor, called "concentrations" which gives an incredible amount of flexibility and freedom to motivated students. However, the college culture is very cut-throat, the facilities are not up to a very high standard, the food is just okay and the athletics are practically non-existent.
