Our faculty span a range of interests, personal histories and research interests. At Hampshire College you work very closely with a faculty committee of at least 2 people your second year on. You’ll choose your committee based on their interests and yours. Who are you interested in working with at Hampshire?

Hi all! I’m Emma, and I’m the counselor for Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and Upstate New York. It’s still very green I’m Vermont so here’s a very green photo of me after a long day of visits in Burlington.

Ever wanted to eat in our dining commons after taking a morning tour of campus? Here’s what the walk from the admissions office to the dining commons looks like! 

If every student was required to take the COWFACTS we wouldn’t have gone test blind!

It’s Monday again! And we want to kick start your week with another edition of #hampstudentsrock

Meet Fangran, she rocks!

Fangran is a theater Division III student. This summer Fangran worked as a teaching assistant at a theater camp in Beijing called Beijing Playhouse. 

Fangran’s worked involved stage manager duties, over seeing costume design as well as some work teaching acting and directing. 

For her Division III Fangran will be directing several productions, and has used this internship as a launch pad for thinking about the differences in directing children and college students. The experience has lead her to consider how to engage different groups of individuals, and how best to work with different age groups. 

Fangran is (as you can probably guess) all about theater at Hampshire. If you have questions about what it’s like to be a theater student here at Hamp, you can reach her at: fl11@hampshire.edu

While it’s usually Admissions Wednesdays on our blog, today it’s an Admissions Friday. As you can see, we are seriously caffeinating ourselves so we can travel the globe to tell you about Hampshire. 

To our MidAtlantic friends! Meet Louisa Lebwohl, she’s your first contact for your application to Hampshire. She’s coming to your schools to talk to you, to your coffee shops to interview you and will diligently read your applications and advocate for you. 

You can email her at any time at llebwohl@hampshire.edu

Happy Friday!

Meet Earl Brown in our first edition of #staffthursdays

We asked Earl Brown to share a little bit about himself with us!

Earl is one of our Campus Police Officers, and is the Community Outreach Coordinator for Campus Police. He’s been working with Campus Police for 6 years. Outside of work, Earl’s favorite color is green and he plays golf, basketball and Xbox 360. 

It’s that monday morning time, to brag about our amazing students on the internet. Meet Appa, he rocks!

Appa was a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow (SURF) at Mount Sinai Hospital, with 20 other interns all from top schools and universities in the country. Appa’s internship was a bench science research project, working with a post-doc who had both PhD and a PharmD. His other mentor had completed his MD-PhD at Harvard-MIT and was the Chief Resident of Neurology at the Mount Sinai Hospital.  

Appa’s project consisted of quantifying protein expression levels of tight junction protein called Claudin-4. It is an important protein that is supposed to play a role in maintaining the integrity of the blood-brain-barrier (BBB).  He performed a time-course experiment where he analyzed the expression levels of this protein after several time increments (i.e. 6 hrs, 12 hrs, 24 hrs etc.). The quantification of Claudin-4 was determined via SDS page gel electrophoresis followed by conducting a Western blotting protocol.

Here’s a photo of Appa presenting his poster at a conference. 

As the only test blind college in the nation we jumped for joy when we heard the news!
