THIS WEEK: HAMPSHIRE COLLEGE

Click here for Admissions Info

Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info

Enrollment: 1,410

Acceptance Rate: 70%


DETAILS: Passion reigns at Hampshire College. It’s found in just about everything students do—from devising their own courses to starting new clubs to debating the most current social issues. There’s no one way to do things at Hampshire, and the students revel in the freedom they have to direct the path of their education. “We love what we are studying because we get to choose what we are studying,” says a junior studying sustainable agricultural methods. Without the yoke of traditional majors and the nail-biting stress of regular grades, Hampshire offers a virtually boundary-free exercise in intellectual nirvana.


Hampshire was created in 1970 as an alternative college by four nearby colleges—Amherst, UMass, Mount Holyoke, and Smith—that now make up the Five College Consortium*. Instead of grades, Hampshire professors hand out “narrative evaluations,” which consist of written evaluations and critiques. Degrees are obtained by passing a series of examinations—not tests, but portfolios of academic work, evaluations, and students’ self-reflections on their academic development.


Given the emphasis on close working relationships with faculty and those “narrative evaluations,” the importance of qualified, attentive faculty is not to be underestimated. Students at Hampshire heap praise on their professors. “Professors at Hampshire are truly invested in their students,” one student says. The Hampshire academic year has fall and spring semesters, each four months long; an optional January term; and internships and other real-world experience are encouraged during all three.

HC Student Perspective: “We are not cookie-cutter students. We are students who passionately teach ourselves in a school that is deliberately unique and experimental.”
