Piece of advice for students in the college search process:
Go on as many college visits as you can. Do interviews for all of the schools you are interested in, even if they are not required. Visiting a campus, and talking to the people who live and work there will tell you a lot about whether or not a school is right for you.

Favorite way to travel:
By bicycle!

Colleges that Change Lives

Hampshire College is a member of Colleges that Change Lives, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process.
