Hampshire College

Reviewed by Karol from Rhode Island on 2017-04-14

Hampshire changes lives! It's unique approach to education allows students to follow their passions with a depth that most undergraduates don't get to experience. So while some may think it unchallenging because of it's written evaluation/no grades policies, most students are intensely involved in rigorous research. Access to professors is wide open and students are treated as fellow intellects. Accessibility to traditional courses is easily given through the five college consortium which also makes being in a rural campus have all the benefits of an urban college. "To know is not enough"- the college motto

Hampshire College

Reviewed by Liz from Salt Lake City, UT on 2017-04-01

I went to Hampshire and it is a fantastic school with an unusual and distinctive program that is great for self-directed kids who want to chart their own course with the help of involved and top notch faculty. The five college consortium is a wonderful resource as well. I transferred in to Hampshire and had an incredible experience there. Because it has a non traditional approach with evaluations instead of grades its quality is not represented by comparing it to other schools based on test scores and other traditional ranking strategies.

If you want your kid burning a flag and not knowing why this is the place to drop 60K doing it. Spoiled brats looking for a cause with too much time on their hands.
