    I would rate Umass Amherst as an overall good school to attend. It has grown and become more competitive which makes it look better and is also a good pick for those struggling financially. There are several majors to choose from that may not be offered in other schools along with several other benefits that made it my to pick.

    UMass is a very awesome school. There is so much variety and opportunities to be taken advantage of here. Also, the marching band is one of the best you will ever see!

    It's an incredibly large school, but it has a lot of opportunities. I love the campus, but there's a lot of construction going on all the time. There's a lot to do but it's very easy to get away from the noise and socialization if you need to.

    Planning to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst was probably the best decision of my life! This school is full of opportunities and the only one stopping a student from achieving greatness is themselves. I could not imagine going anywhere else!hr

    UMass is honestly a place that brings great happiness, in the form of opportunities, friends, and moments that will last a lifetime. The food is scrumptious and healthy for you, too! You ma think UMass is full of partiers, but there are far more great things happening throughout our lively campus.

    UMass Amherst is the perfect combination of a big school with a small college town. This school allows you to make so many connections with professors and graduate programs as well as to the greater Pioneer Valley community. There's lots of diversity in political views, race and student life.
