Some students scramble amid looming changes at Hampshire
Some students who were counting on going to Hampshire College next fall are scrambling to figure out their next move. The school recently decided to admit just the 77 students who were already committed to the college in Amherst, Massachusetts. This comes as Hampshire seeks a “strategic partner,” with financial troubles looming.
Hampshire College spokesman John Courtemanche said bringing in the early decision and gap year students was about the school keeping its word.
