Taking Root

Taking Root is a student/alum-written publication that describes the history of the college, the academic system, and the available resources on campus, all in a fun, cartoon-style format.


Taking Root  was originally conceived by Hampshire alums and has been extensively revised over the years. The current incarnation was created primarily by Mark Tuchman (alum), Tom Doherty (former staff), and Josiah Litant (former staff and alum).

For prospective students, current students, and former students, not to mention anyone who is familiar with Hampshire, it is an enjoyable and illuminating read.
