Informal notes, info, and impressions of the school, programs, and surrounding area: (to help you get a bit more of the flavor of this school and Greece, we’re including informal notes from Dre after her visit there, added to with info from a recent conversation between Carin at CORC and Leighanne, their Director of Student Life):



The college (small bachelor’s level with two new master’s programs):
http://www.perrotiscollege.edu.gr/
Shared space with the American Farm School (pre-school – high school) in Thessaloniki, Greece

- The farm is enormous and includes grapes for wine, pomegranates, a small sail farm, chickens and eggs, cows (a lot of cows), a production facility for milk and cheese, and a lot more...
- We had a legit seminar on olive oil which included an olive oil tasting
- An international (European, really) conference on herbicide use was occurring at the same time as our visit:
http://www.ewrs.org/optimizing_herbicide_use.asp
- We visited the food science lab and saw intriguing and impressive original research (I don't want to spoil it for any of you who might actually visit!)
- We hiked in Mount Olympus (THE Mount Olympus)
- We visited Meteora https://www.visitmeteora.travel/en/what-to-see/the-meteora-monasteries
- We had an incredibly informative tour of Gerovassilliou Winery which has an enormous wine museum that is truly educational and includes some incredible historical artifacts
https://www.gerovassiliou.gr/en/node
-While there we connected with Texas A&M where a faculty in leadership studies was leading a study abroad trip and AFS was the host that coordinated on the group logistics
- They do advise high school students at the American Farm School about admission to US universities. I met a rising senior interested in Hampshire. Other Farm School grads are going to Rhodes, St. Lawrence, Union, WPI and other solid institutions this fall. Banners hanging in the college advising room: Amherst College, Mt. Holyoke, Michigan, Princeton, University of Richmond.

While we were there, a colleague from UMass presented a seminar on racism and implicit bias to the student life staff. I facilitated a workshop/seminar on LGBT and ally support and Byron facilitated a session on engaging millennials and was impressed with the examples staff provided about students' autonomy and independent projects (and not just student life staff, but from the library and the Farm School). There are also several fellowship opportunities for recent graduating undergrads to do work at the School.

STUDENT GROUP RECOGNITION FOR THE 2017-2018 ACADEMIC YEAR IS NOW OPEN!!!

We're excited you are interested in signing for an existing student group or introducing a new student group to campus!

Before you submit a request, please consider the following information. In the recognition review process we will first attempt to identify existing or other newly proposed groups with a similar mission statement. Whenever possible, it is our goal to strengthen a group by combining with others who have a shared interest. We then encourage and support student signers to broaden their scope by welcoming new and diverse opinions into the group. This leads to student groups that are better equipped to "pass the torch" and stay recognized year after year, due in part to their larger membership base of invested members willing to take on a leadership role. It also fosters collaboration with students at all stages in their Hampshire path.

ALL STUDENT GROUPS MUST SUBMIT! ONLY ONE SUBMISSION FROM EACH STUDENT GROUP WILL BE ACCEPTED.

THIS ONLINE PROCESS IS LIVE AND ENDS ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19TH AT 4:30PM. NO LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

Below is all of the information you will need to submit a Recognition Form for an Existing or Newly Proposed Student Group.

The Student Group Recognition process will be run through CollegiateLink!

LOGGING INTO COLLEGIATE LINK FOR THE FIRST TIME:
To access CollegiateLink for the first time, visit https://hampshire.collegiatelink.net/ and click the blue Sign In Now button in the center of the cover photo. You will be directed to a Hampshire College Log In screen where you will enter your Hampshire User Name and Password. You will then be logged in and can access your student group site and register for Recognition.

CURRENTLY RECOGNIZED STUDENT GROUPS:
Currently recognized student groups can access the link to Register on their student group site which can be found by going to the Organizations page, found here: https://hampshire.collegiatelink.net/organizations and clicking on your student group name. When you click the Register button on your student group site located under the tools menu, it will lead you to the step-by-step student group recognition registration process. Current student group information is pre-loaded into CollegiateLink, however you have the opportunity to edit the existing information during form submission.

NEW OR PREVIOUSLY EXISTING STUDENT GROUPS:
Newly proposed student groups and student groups that have been previously recognized can access the form by going to the Organizations page, found here: https://hampshire.collegiatelink.net/organizations and clicking the Register button under "Register a New Organization" on the left hand side of the page.

INFORMATION THAT WILL BE REQUIRED FOR STUDENT GROUP RECOGNITION SUBMISSION:

STUDENT GROUP NAME

STUDENT GROUP PROFILE INFORMATION, WHICH INCLUDES:
DETAILED MISSION STATEMENT & PROGRAMMING INITIATIVES, PICTURES, AND INTERESTS: Here is your opportunity to present who your group is, your goals, and what you hope to accomplish as a student group on campus. Please include all of your exciting ideas on how your group plans to engage with students on campus and provide specific details on what your group plans to do for programming and initiatives at Hampshire! Your request will be denied unless you provide detailed information.

NAMES FOR THE 3 STUDENT GROUP LEADERS, aka "SIGNERS": Signers must be currently enrolled students who will be at Hampshire in the fall of 2017. It is okay to have one signer currently on leave as long as that person will be back in the fall and has given you permission to be listed. (NO Div 3s graduating this May can be listed!) The signers who are listed on the form will receive ALL emails related to the group's recognition.

ADVISOR: Academic, sports, identity, and some specialty groups are required to have an advisor because of expertise and safety and/or risk concerns. Other student groups are encouraged to have a member of the Hampshire faculty or staff be an advisor to their group. If your group wants or is required to have an advisor, you should have met with that person to get the individual's informed consent prior to listing the name on the form, since they will receive notification.

After all recognition forms are submitted, Campus Leadership and Activities will review the information and contact signers via CollegiateLink and email. Based on our assessments, those groups needing additional information will get a detailed description of what is required for approval.

Still have questions? Come into Campus Leadership and Activities or give us a call at x6005 or email [email protected] we're happy to help.

Thank You,
Carolyn & Gretchen
