Why I love Hampshire: Because I came from another CTCL school, Hampshire College struck my fancy because of the unique educational program here. Every day I learn something new and my mind is just blown away at the students and their academic studies! I love that people can be themselves here; I love that we have our very own ORGANIC farm and that you won't find "sheep" as students. Our students pave their own ways and do really cool things to contribute positive things to the world.

Best College Admissions Advice: Be yourself! Be open to new experiences and really take your time in the search. Find the right fit for you and soak up every moment in the process. It's OK to be different, and it's OK to cross some colleges off your list.

Favorite travel moments: Looking at the moon from 40 feet below sea level, watching the sunset in the Serengeti, spontaneously eating vegan cake with nuns for one of their 90th birthdays in Worcester, MA, getting stuck in a muddy cliff in Aabenraa, DK.

Fun Fact about me: I haven't owned a television since I was 16.

What I want to accomplish in the next few years: I want to build a tiny home that leaves a small carbon footprint!

In my free time I like outside, attend poetry open-mic nights. strum my guitar, explore the Pioneer Valley, since I'm new around here, and visit cool cafes.

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.

"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers." —Loren Pope, Colleges that Change Lives (2006)
