Other ways to explore Hampshire during your visit:

Interviews are a one-on-one conversation with an admissions counselor or a fourth-year Hampshire student. Interviews are informative as well as evaluative, and can be very helpful to prospective students and to the admissions committee. For these reasons, we strongly encourage prospective students to schedule interviews. Interviews are available weekdays by appointment and on selected Saturdays from October through January; please call the admissions office to schedule one.

Class Visits
One of the best ways to observe Hampshire's pedagogy in action is to observe a class. A list of classes open for visits will be available in September. We do not have classes during the summer.
