In light of recent events at Amherst College and UMASS, Hampshire’s Board of Trustees has voted to withdraw from the five (now four) College Consortium in order to join a gang with a little more style. This means that the new University of California at Hampshire College will open its doors this upcoming F16 semester!
A Howler staff member went around to record people’s reactions:
“It makes a lot of sense because Cali’s like, a huge feeder state, dude.” – said a Div 2 surf bro.
“I’m too excited! This may mean even better burritos in the Bridge.” – Mike Rachman (mr13)
“I hope this means we’re pulling away from entrepreneurship and embracing more ethical fields of study.” – Xavier (xat12)
The new vibes will be ushered in with the grand opening of another new living building! The center will house S.U.R.F. or Students United for Real-life Fun, which is planned to replace the Hampshire Student Union as our student government. Keep an eye out for the S.U.R.F. elections: nominations open up next week!
