Hampshire Alums

An education shaped by a student's own interests produces remarkable results.

Awards and Higher Degrees

The National Science Foundation has just published its annual census of U.S. colleges whose graduates are most likely to earn a doctorate degree, and joining Cornell, Dartmouth and most Ivies, Stanford, and Duke, is Hampshire College, at #40 among the nation's nearly 3,000 colleges.

A quarter of Hampshire alums have started their own business or organization, placing the College at #6 on Forbes’ short list of most entrepreneurial colleges in the nation. After graduation, Hampshire alums are creating platforms for putting their ideas into action, in the form of social ventures, investment firms, advocacy organizations, film companies, art galleries, or creative mashups of those and more.

As undergraduates, one in five who complete a Division III project in science present their work at a peer-reviewed conference. Five percent are lead authors on peer-reviewed journal articles, a remarkable accomplishment for undergraduates.

Nine Fulbright Scholarships in the last four years places Hampshire alongside the nation’s best schools for these awards.

Two-thirds of graduates earn an advanced degree within ten years of commencement.

Hampshire alums have won Pulitzer and Hillman Prizes and Emmy, Academy, Peabody, and Grammy Awards.

Nothing will ever take the place of an experience.
