Umass Amherst is a great school with abundant of activities and academic assistance. Within a nice and suitable environment to study and learn, you will able to explore one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Jian from Jamaica Plain, MA
This is my home. UMASS Amherst is unlike any place I have seen because it is this massive city cradled in a gorgeous, mountain-crested valley. Also, even though the campus is massive, you don't feel anything less than at home in your niche: U R UMASS.
