Kaplan College Guide

Hampshire College is one of 25 colleges and universities featured in the 2010 edition of the Newsweek/Kaplan college guide.

Newsweek and higher education writer Jay Mathews worked with guidance counselors and college consultants to identify colleges that serve students' needs "unusually well." In a story titled "Finding the Right College for You," Mathews notes that Hampshire students "choose their own line of inquiry" after completing "foundational studies that prepare them to pursue their personal visions."

Counselors felt Hampshire does a good job working with students who are bright and ambitious but not sure about going to college, and the guide points out that 56 percent of Hampshire graduates have earned at least one graduate degree.
