Like most first year students, when Amelia Andersen 06F arrived on campus two years ago, she began the difficult task of narrowing down her interests to find one focus of study. As it turned out, a stay in Mexico shortly after she graduated high school ended up being a key part in her decision-making.
"Over my first year I bounced around a lot, and between the first and second year I thought a lot about what my time in Mexico meant to me. I realized there was a way to address and access issues. There are so many issues, immigration, people living their lives in the shadows and outside the law. And that's everywhere in the nation at this point. I realized I had a big opportunity at Hampshire College," says Andersen.
