Hampshire’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

October 16–18, 2020

Save the date for Hampshire’s 50th Anniversary and 2020 Commencement. During this special event, which will take the place of Family & Friends Weekend, we will also come together as a community to celebrate our newest graduates!

Alums, students, faculty, staff, families, and friends of the College will gather on campus for our largest celebration ever. It will be a weekend to connect, learn, party, and look ahead to the next 50 years.

  • Meet President Ed Wingenbach and hear the vision for Hampshire's future
  • Current alumni will welcome new graduates into their ranks at Commencement
  • Enjoy dinner and dancing with the Hampshire community
  • Tour the campus to see what’s changed and revisit what’s stayed the same
  • Hear about current research, student work, and life on campus
  • Celebrate 50 years of Hampshire and reconnect with classmates, friends, and faculty



Book early, as autumn is a popular season to visit New England. We have secured special rates for specific locations.
