Like any student body worth its weight in cases of PBR, the co-eds at UMass Amherst know that any sporting event is often just an excuse to drink. "Honestly, the football team sucks, the best part is tailgate, noone even goes to the games. Hockey is the most popular and they're actually pretty decent. But expect thousands of drunk kids when you get there," admits one senior. And while the town of Amherst doesn't have the artistic and quirky reputation of nearby Northampton, according to this junior business major, it's still good for something: "The town is small but the bar scene is still really good for college kids. There is always a party and opportunity to go out."
