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; you can select an interview date here.
One of the best ways to observe Hampshire's pedagogy in action is to observe a class. Please inform the admissions office if you plan on visiting a class, and check out the Class Visits page for a list of current courses and class visit etiquette. Note: Class visits are limited to prospective students only.

"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."
