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.

There is something special for EVERYONE at UMass Amherst. The classes are challenging and educational, the clubs are diverse and welcoming, and the campus is beautiful all-year round. Everyone will have a great experience at this top-notch university.
