Those of you who have now read this book and are going to attend UMass are lucky, because the things which took me a few years to improve upon and figure out, you now know. A lot of students are concerned with the recent budget cuts. Yet, UMass's financial situation will improve over time and may never even affect you. Judging from the comments students have made, coming to UMass has truly enriched their lives, academically and socially.
Despite the bad parking, unpredictable weather, and crummy campus dining, it's still hard to find someone who genuinely hates UMass. If you work hard and don't let yourself get too distracted by all the parties, you will be able to avoid some of the pitfalls plaguing students fresh out of high school who aren't used to such responsibility. Going to UMass and experiencing such a multifaceted institution will open doors for you. The size of UMass provides you with more resources and options, so do what I did, and have fun.
The facilities at UMASS Amherst are second to none. The Mullens Center holds major athletic events, as well as concerts and other cultural events, the dining halls are ranked highest in the country, and the Library is one of the finest in the United States. There are tons of extracurricular activities for all interests, and the University continues to explore more innovation for the classrooms of the future.
Amherst is the definition of a college town, with 2 vibrant colleges located there. Activities for all interests are available, and there are also 3 other colleges in the area, which we have the opportunity to attend and take classes at as well. The best possible world for anyone wishing to experience college and the most possible opportunities, especially for those students who are undecided as to what course of study to pursue.
I really enjoy my school. The classes are challenging and they can test you, but the teachers are all willing to help you as long as you go to help you ask.
How big are the classes? I am concerned about class size at Umass.
Becoming a business major at UMass was not necessarily that hard. I really work hard in high school to do well and I had several volunteer opportunities on my resume when applying to college.
I am white so I really dont have an opinion. I am aware of some minority focused fraternities/sororities, as well as the malcom x cultural center, and I have met a range of economic backgrounds here.
