Alumni and Family Events

Each year, Hampshire alums and families gather at dozens of events across the country organized with the support of alum volunteers. Events range from cocktail parties with the President of Hampshire College to museum visits, networking receptions, Alumni Reel screenings, and more. Attending a regional event is a great opportunity to connect with the Hampshire community in your area and hear news from the College. We hope you’ll join us at our next event!

Past Events

R.W. Kern Center Opening

In September, 2016, Hampshire College dedicated the R.W. Kern Center, a 17,000-square-foot building constructed of mostly local and entirely non-toxic materials designed to achieve Living Building Challenge certification by generating its own energy, harvesting its own water, and treating its own waste. We celebrated with a symposium, hands-on workshops, and had ample connections and camaraderie while we explored what buildings can do to enhance the quality of human life with the smallest possible negative impact on our environment. See photos here.

Cuba Travel Program

The Hampshire program, which comprises two trips, will draw on the close contacts made during the College’s unique 14-year-old Study Abroad Program in Cuba, planned and operated in conjunction with the Cuban Union of Artists and Writers (UNEAC.)
