I love my classes. Our class sizes are REALLY small. My class sizes range from 8-25 students. Professors put you on the spot and ask you if you're sick if you missed class, and they know you by name the second day of class. We're reading original source scientific documents when studying genetics.

    Amherst has a great location, with easy access to the shopping, restaurants and movie theaters of Hadley, yet just a 2 minute walk for the quaint town of Amherst. It is part of the 5 college consortium which allows you to take classes which count towards your needed credits at Smith, Holyoke, Hampshire and UMASS at Amherst providing you with an unlimited opportunity of interests and people, yet still boasts a smaller communal campus feeling. Professors are easily accessible and committed to helping you.

    You learn more about the world and yourself than you can possible imagine. Intellectual diversity and curiosity are cornerstones of Amherst and are ingrained into every aspect of daily life. It's a college that both allows and trusts you to be self-motivated and take as much as you can from the amazing resources and faculty at your disposal.
