The Equestrian Team responds to funding concerns

The Equestrian Team     We’re writing in response to an article that was published about our funding request, and why one individual felt that your vote should have been no.

Student Group Feature: Vibe

Jake Lichter Vibe is a student group that, for the past several years, has provided Hampshire College with something resembling a music scene. If you have been to a show at Saga or the Red Barn or Roos Rohde House in the past few years, it was more than likely put on by Vibe. Who’s […]

Student Starts EPEC to Save Herd

Dylan Welch Amye Gulezian goes cuckoo for cocoa cows and is organizing an E.P.E.C this semester about the herd living at the Hampshire Farm.

We want community space, transparency and […]

Student Group Feature: Relaxation Club

Josh Salzberg The Relaxation Club’s origins stem from the initial conception of the Wellness Center. Back then, as the Back Rub Club, its entire focus was solely on back rubs. However, when the founding director of the Wellness Center left and current director Jordan Perry (all hail) was hired, the Back Rub Club suddenly became […]

Student Group Feature: Peer Chaplains

Ben Stumpf The Peer Chaplains are a relatively new group on campus. They’ve been active for two years and the group consists entirely of students, under the domain of Hampshire Spiritual Life.

Yurt Update

Ben Stumpf and Sara Turner Over the past few semesters, the Yurt has experienced some growing pains trying to fit together the old and the new. Old equipment, new technology. Old space, new shows.
