Martial arts program director Marion Taylor retires today after working at Hampshire for nearly 40 years. A much-loved instructor, Taylor had intended to begin a career in the natural sciences when a chance encounter with a few Hampshire students brought him to campus. “My avocation became my vocation,” Taylor said. Taylor has been practicing Shotokan karate for over 35 years, and holds the rank of Godan (fifth degree black belt). He also holds senior instructor status in Heki Ryu Kyudo (Japanese archery).
We’ll miss having Nara Williams’ tiny house on our campus this summer.
Anonymous asked: should students who submitted their deposit and committed have received a packet or anything in the mail by now? i haven't and am wondering if i should be concerned.
There’s no reason to fret! The new student mailing was just sent out on Friday, so you should be receiving it soon.
On December 7th, 2012, Hampshire College Division III student Sasha Hsuczyk performed a concert of music from the repertoire of legendary, deceased Irish traditional fiddler Julia Clifford. Hsuczyk’s concert was informed by a body of research she collected while doing fieldwork in Ireland. Her Division III project as a whole centered around exploring performance and experimental film as a means of ethnomusicological research expression, using the life and music of Julia Clifford as a topic. This concert was the first half of that project.

For her Division III project, Gavi Davidson created a course using flying trapeze as a form of experiential therapy. Throughout the past year, she researched how the healing processes work and how flying through the air might be therapeutic. She built a flying trapeze rig on Hampshire’s campus and is offering free classes and single swings to students, staff, and faculty this weekend. Even our Dean of Admissions went for a swing!

“That’s the anguish of [writing]. Do this book, or die. You have to go through that.”

Anonymous asked: A few months ago, I sent an ask to this tumblr regarding my nervousness in coming to Hampshire as a first-semester first-year. Now, my first semester is over, I'm back home, and I'm going through this tumblr, sad as fuck that I can't come back for four months. Hampshire has become more than a home for me. I've never been happier in my life. I find myself looking for reminders of my new home everywhere I go. My only consolation is that I'll return shortly - and this blog. Thanks, dude.
You flatter us, anon. Welcome to the Camp Hamp family. :)
