Hampshire College Celebrates 45 Years
Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts is celebrating its 45th anniversary this weekend.
The small liberal arts college, where students design their own course of studies and professors don’t assign grades, doesn’t fell like it has reached middle-age, jokes current Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash.
" It is still a place full of ideas and controversy and people eager to argue about any issue. It is really fun," he said.
The anniversary celebration includes workshops, talks, readings, and performances. There will be a salute to some of the original faculty members from 1970 who are now retiring.
