What is your overall opinion of this school?

Now I think I've heard every possible way to describe college and what to look out for. I've heard of how the food is supposed to be awful and all I will want to do is snack on the things I buy outside of campus, the bathrooms with be disgusting, people will push to make me drink, and everyone will be going to parties and I would have to go if I wanted friends. But all of these comments that have been put onto me were made by those who've never been to UMASS Amherst. The first week there felt like a thick layer of butter on bread. I had made friends that did not want to party and friends that invited me every weekend to party. And both types of friends would mingle and not care or force the other to be like them. I have stuffed myself with the food at the dining halls because UMASS Amherst lives up to it's #1 dining in the US. I have gone from a 00 to a size 2 in clothing and I have never felt so much like myself before, even when around family I find myself thinking about being there again. Even in my dorm I would not feel nervous going into a bathroom during the weekend when drinking and parties would swirl around peoples minds like fog because those bathrooms were always clean. There will never be a day that goes by that I won't think about being able to sit in the Durfee Gardens in my University next to our Koi fish pond wondering when the next bloom of flowers was going to be or sitting on a friends dorm room floor playing a new card game. Even getting ready to go to a school approved event like dog petting, club signups, or a tailgate. UMASS Amherst is definitely the best choice when it comes to wanting the best college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everyone thinks of the school as zoo mass. Everyone thinks it's a hard party drinking school. Everyone thinks it has great food. What fails to be included in this 'everyone' narrative is POC students. Students of color like me, do not have the privilege to attend the zoo mass scene most of the time. UMASS Amherst is a different zoo for us; we have to navigate a PWI in all social spheres whether that be academic, social, or seeing a bunch of frat boys drinks until they're content. POC UMASS has to journey through the microaggressions from students and professors and the racism from the institution as a whole. We can still have a good time trust; we will always find a way to power through our oppression. But we are not and will never be 'everyone'.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I went to visit the first time, I was immediately overwhelmed by how large it is (it’s like a small city.) After looking deeper into the academic scene, however, I quickly realized how many amazing programs Amherst offers and how devoted all of the staff members/professors are to helping you reach your goals. Also, the food is great if that’s something you’re considering in your college search :).e

Umass Amherst is a great place to study. You have so many tools you can access. Although this college is known as a "party school" not many people on campus go to parties. You have the responsibility to choose your own path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMass is a very big university. Since it is big, students can get a lot of help and opportunities here. There are a lot of offices on campus ready to help students from no matter what perspectives. For instance, we have a writing center helping students with their writing. What is more, all of the professors are ready to help. If I have to say one disadvantage of UMass, that must be there are not a lot of shopping malls nearby. However, we, students, can be Amazon Prime members for several months for free.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being one of the bigger research campuses in New England, let alone Massachusetts, Umass Amherst sports a very large campus, practically constituting a city onto itself. This fact is both the school's best and worst feature. There will always be plenty of people that share your interests, and can make great friends, especially among the many student organizations. It does also, however, mean that there will probably be a few people in you living space you don't always get along with. There is plenty of transportation around the campus, which is usually pretty well organized, despite occasionally being a bit unreliable. As for academics, Umass is great for both STEM majors, thanks to its research focus, and for humanities majors, thanks to its location.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst is one of positivity to say the least. My freshman year on the flagship campus was outstanding, filled with not only a nationally appraised dining program, but also a vibrant campus atmosphere, sound facilities, and a plethora of dedicated professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMass was originally my last choice for schools, and I ended up attending because it was simply the cheapest option. However, when I got there I fell in love with the school, and I know now that attending UMass is the best decision I've ever made. The engineering program is amazing, the professor are extremely understanding and knowledgeable people, the food is great, and the campus is beautiful. There are endless opportunities available at UMass for EVERYONE.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am going to be a student at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and have visited a number of times as well as attended the orientation. While UMass Amherst was my safety school, I am looking forward to advance my learning in this new environment.
