Please share yours in the “Hampshire Stories Studio” (Liebling Sound Editing Room) or with the roving recording teams on campus. Using alum stories recorded in these interviews, Melanie Shorin 73F, of the Narrative Trust, is helping us identify what has made Hampshire unique and excellent, and how we can use our past to shape our future in the twenty-first century. Kevin Cline 97F will be leading the recording teams, with help from Brendan Toller 04F, Taliesin Nyala 07F, and Sarah Danson 06F, among others.
