"Wonderful! My husband and I drove away from Hampshire Friday even secure that our son would have not only an amazing academic opportunity but would have strong accessible support for all aspects of student life. The sense of community was evident throughout. Thank you!"
"The fact that Hampshire College hosted a family orientation at all was another example of the college setting a higher standard than the norm. Thank you for helping us feel welcome to stay more than a few hours beyond what was needed for move-in. We thoroughly enjoyed spending two days on campus."
"I felt lots of enthusiasm and friendly, warm welcoming and received useful information."
"This was a great experience. At my other son's college, the orientation was all about the students, with no attempt to answer questions or establish lines of communication with the parents. You did a wonderful job of making families feel welcomed to the community."
