For a great undergraduate education you don't need to spend tons of money, especially if you are planing to continue you education after undergrad. UMass Amherst has understanding professors, knowledgeable teaching assistants, award winning dining, and a campus designed to fit anyone's personality.

    I went to go see the school and it looks like a nice place but their architecture program was kind of disappointing.

    The science program and research opportunities here are incredible. Something is always happening on campus or in the area. Be ready to walk or bike.

    This school has everything a college student is looking for. From the tremendous amount of major choices to the large range of clubs and organizations that are available, it is a great all-around experience. Even with the size of the school, everyone feels special and at home on the campus.

    I toured UMass AMherst and loved it!! Not to mention I also love the food. I really like how big and spread out the campus is, but still accessible through the campus bus.

    UMass is a fantastic place for food, education, and socialization. There are always opportunities for help and advise at UMass. UMass is the place to go to learn new things and have new experiences.
