4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus police doesn't care about much. Most things in the way of drugs and drinking go here. It's hard to get in trouble with campo. It's not so hard to get in trouble in classes.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: In general, the structure of the school and the administration are very flexible. If you want to do something, you can pretty much always find a way to make it happen. Don't be afraid to customize your academic program and make changes in the structure of the school! If someone tells you it can't be done, just ask someone else until you find someone willing to support you.

Administration: Hampshire admin, like it's academics and everything else, are hands-off. Anything so much as enforcing school rules or local laws is met with protests from the students.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus really isn't strict about things, but I still feel safe.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students are more or less worried than they should be when dealing with Public Safety. They are not here to prosecute students—they are here to ensure student safety. If there is a dangerous situation, Public Safety is there to sort it out and not to throw punishments around.

When someone gets caught on minor drug violations, a warning or “housing probation” is often issued. This basically means that a student cannot be caught again during the probationary period, or they will lose their housing. This second part is usually not enforced unless someone is dealing. If you mind your own business, are considerate, and are not too obvious, you should be fine.
