The Climax Unrecognized
The Climax, Hampshire's original student newspaper, has disappeared and reappeared continuously throughout the college's history. Although the current incarnation is still relatively young, The Climax has, over the past few years, covered a range of issues of vital importance to the community, oftentimes serving as the only forum in which the administration, faculty, and students of the college come into dialogue with each other. In addition to gathering news and opinion from across the campus community, The Climax covers student work and entertainment. The Climax not only serves to inform the students, staff, and faculty who read it, but also The Climax provides an introduction to prospective students and their parents as well as newspaper leadership and experience to The Climax staff. We are happy to write community service evaluations for all staff members who contribute to a majority of issues. The Climax will gladly work with any interested writers and photographers and holds regular staff meetings open to all Hampshire students and faculty. Journalists, writers, photographers, graphic designers, artists, anyone interested in layout, and copy editors are encouraged to contact us.

The Climax, the first full-size student newspaper of Hampshire, debuted in 1971. Its staff included second-year students Richard Asinof, Betsy Dietel, Tom Kizzia, and Kim Shelton, and first-year students Richard Barber, Doug Fleisher, and Phil Robertson.
The Climax has gone defunct and reemerged throughout Hampshire history since then until 2006. For the past five years, the paper has seen changes in its content, sections, and most recently, layout.
