| Not my cup of tea. I'm not a hippie and expected there to be diversity, when there wasn't any. Hampshire is full of hippie wannabe close-minded rich white kids who do drugs and are standoffish. The academics comes down to readings and projects, no tests or quizes...you can pretty much graduate no sweat. I had a prof. that made kids cry and was an asshole to students, and didn't give them the time of day. Maybe a good fit if you're a hippie or hipster looking to study film or art, otherwise don't waste your time. |

| I completed my BA at Hampshire in about three years and must say that I was shocked by the radical political environment; narrow-minded faculty and students; and socially inept group I encountered. These were very lonely years for me and I'm so sad that I spent my college years at such a bizzare and disturbing place. |
Since I was so unhappy at Hampshire, I simply pursued a course of study that would enable me to graduate as quickly as possible.
My advice to anyone who does not share a far left leaning political ideology is to avoid Hampshire College at all costs. Reading reviews by recent students, I see that things haven't changed there in the 36 years since I graduated.I view my time at Hampshire as the "lost years." If you are a Christian, be forewarned that you are entering into enemy territory where your most cherished values will be arrogantly challenged and disrespected by many.

| Hampshire is a great school! I definitely would recommend this school to many people. It really helped me grow as a student buuuuut The experience all depends on you. You must do your work to get by. The courses are pretty challenging to most people so to really have a good experience, you have to put in your all. Good Luck :) |
