Hampfest is Hampshire College's student activities fair, held at the beginning of each semester. It is an occasion for student groups to present themselves to the wider Hampshire community and to involve members of the community in their organizations. Delicious snacks and good music are provided, and it provides a great opportunity to pick up information from and connect with organizers of our on-campus student groups. All students are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Signer Seminar is designed to be a valuable opportunity for signers to re-energize for the new year, take advantage of knowledge gained in various workshops, and network with other signers to create programming partnerships. Get energized and excited to start the semester strong with your student group. Learn skills for successful student group organization, planning, and programming.
