Campus Leadership and Activities

Is there a captivating speaker or emerging band you want to bring to campus? Want to get involved in political campaigns or social justice initiatives? Would you like to explore a new hobby, such as rock climbing, contra dance, or a cappella? Campus leadership and activities is here for you!

Campus leadership and activities is your office of student activities and programs. We are committed to supporting students as they endeavor to create student groups, plan programs, lead campaigns, and build community at Hampshire College. Our office staff is available to give advice, provide consultations, and answer any and all questions you have as you become an engaged participant in the life of the College.

You can find the Student Events Page here!


Students looking for support with programs and activities have access to many resources in our office, including poster making supplies; computer and printer access; use of our fax machine and telephone; student group mailboxes; a comprehensive student events calendar; and a knowledgeable staff eager to help you.

Our office also processes all student group paperwork in conjunction with FundCom, so come by to pick up necessary forms or to get help filling them out. The office is open during the academic year and summer, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

For a successful event, you will need four essential forms:

  • Reimbursement Form: The reimbursement form is used in rare cases when purchases can't be covered with purchase order or p-card transactions. Funding must be approved by FundCom before the purchase is made. Students may seek reimbursement for mileage, tolls, or parking costs on trips. It also may be an option for food and/or supply purchases with vendors who don't accept purchase orders or offer an online forum for credit card purchasing.
  • Purchasing Form: which allows you to buy goods/services for your student group. Purchases can be made in the form of a Mix Nuts Transfer, Purchase Order, (PO) or a Purchasing Card (P-Card).
  • Contract Request Form: which must be filled out whenever an outside vendor is coming to campus to provide services.
  • Event Registration Form: which allows you to request on-campus spaces for your events and meetings.

To plan a trip, you will need the Trip Registration Form, which registers your trip with Campus Leadership and Activities. You will be prompted to set up a meeting with Gretchen Labonte at to do risk assessment for your trip. All trip members must also fill out a Risk Management Waiver.
