    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.

    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.

    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.
