Hampshire has a lot of resource centers. It also has a lot of acronyms. This combination means that it’s sometimes hard to figure out where these places are and what purpose they serve. But never you fear—the Guerilla Guide is here!

  • Career Options Resource Center (CORC) CORC is an awesome resource for information on job opportunities, internships, graduate school, and more. You can browse through material on your own, or you can make an appointment to speak with a career counselor. CORC maintains several listservs on different topics and periodically sponsors speakers and workshops on everything from how to write a killer cover letter or resume to what it’s like to work as an English teacher in Japan. (Also, they have lots of good info on working in the arts, social justice, etc.)) You can also friend them on Facebook (just search for CORC!) and get automatically invited to all their awesome events. Location: Library, 3rd Floor Hours: Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Extension: 5445 Email:
  • Center for Academic Support and Advising (CASA) CASA is the place to go if you have an academic hold on The Hub, you want to use AP or IB credit to get around first-year distribution requirements, you want to change your advisor, you have questions on what exactly Div I (or II or III) is all about, you’re worried that you might not get an evaluation in one of your classes, you need a disability accommodation, or you have any other academic concerns you could possibly think of. Check out their intranet site (link above); believe it or not, the faculty section is a wealth of information on advising, the academic structure of the school, what the deal is with evaluations, and more. Location: Dakin Living Room, 2nd Floor Hours: Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Extension: 5498 Email:
  • Lebrón-Wiggins-Pran Cultural Center The Cultural Center strives to provide a ’home away from home’ for students of color and international students. The Center supports and provides a meeting space for SOURCE (Students of Under-Represented Cultures and Ethnicities) groups, puts on special events (such as for Black History Month), and organizes programs for the larger campus community on issues of race, ethnicity, oppression, and under-representation. Location: Freestanding building behind Cole Science Center Hours: Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm Extension: 5461 Email:
  • STAR Peer Resource Center (STAR) Wish you could talk to an older student about all those confusing elements of Hampshire? Wish you could pick up a sheet of paper that tells you in clear language how to structure an independent study or write a self-evaluation? Wish you had access to a library of Div I and II portfolios? You can at the STAR office! Location: Dakin Living Room, 1st Floor Hours: Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Extension: 5425 Email:
  • Quantitative Resource Center Scenario: You found this awesome class that fulfills your QUA requirement and are humming merrily along until your discover that in said class you are actually required to do math. Math makes you hyperventilate. Hurry to the Quantitative Resource Center! Location: Cole Science Center Lizard Lounge, Hours: 7:00 - 9:00 pm Sunday through Thursday
  • The Writing Center The Writing Center is available as a resource at any stage of the writing process. You can work with a staff member on course or divisional work in an individualized tutorial. If you’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of revising that ten-page paper (or starting it!) call the Writing Center to make an appointment. Location: Freestanding building between Greenwich and EDH Extension: 5531/5577/5646
  • Spiritual life The Spiritual Life program at Hampshire College provides the space and support for spiritual exploration, development, and appreciation. We seek to encourage healthy community life, interaction, and reconciliation across boundaries of ideas, possibilities, and faiths. We offer support so that students, staff, and faculty can flourish and experience the connections between mind, body, and spirit, and a place where we can become fully ourselves even as we lift up and celebrate our diverse community.
  • The Student Diagnostic Center (the DC) Here to make your computer work again when it breaks down in the midst of ongoing final papers.
