For the Media

Media attendance and coverage of the April 27, 2012 inauguration of Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash is welcomed.

We would be pleased to have you join us on this special day celebrating Hampshire College and President Lash, with a keynote address by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.

If you would like to cover the inauguration, please contact us as soon as possible to request space in the media area. (Please note that space at this event will be limited and there is high demand for admittance; a request for space does not automatically guarantee that it will be available.)

If more than one individual is assigned, please list the name and role (e.g., reporter, photographer) of each individual for whom you would like a ticket. Also indicate any special assistance, if any, that you might anticipate needing on our part on April 27.

We will notify you when a ticket has been reserved in your/media outlet's name.

You will be able to pick up your ticket at the entrance to the event on April 27. The person who hands out media tickets will also ask to see media credentials.

No one will be admitted without a ticket.
