Div Days

What's a Div, you ask? Divs refer to our divisional system, the three-stage structure for your four years at Hampshire. If that sounds a little off the beaten path, just wait until you get to campus.

This is a true campus visit. You'll sit in on our discussion-based classes, hear the groundbreaking work our students and faculty are doing, and get an academic overview from the pros in admissions. There's also time for interviews, campus tours, and even a visit to our 85+ acre farm. Be sure to say hi to the farm animals!

We're so glad you're visiting Hampshire! Choose your date using the calendar on this page.
