The largest public university in New England, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst is the original campus in the UM System. UMass is a land-grant university with the “Highest Research Activity" and the U.S. News & World Report ranks the UMass Amherst campus as #26 in National Universities. The university is committed to inclusion and features an LGBTQ Center, as well as a Women's Center, on top of the 100 academic courses on diversity-related topics. The campus is home to the Institute of Applied Life Sciences and the Center of Data Science, and all students can take advantage of the nationally-ranked online education.
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.
