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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to UMass Amherst after having completed two years at Johnson and Wales, and I was honestly glad to have done so. Although the larger classes with 200+ students weren't exactly the best for learning, some professors set up a smaller group instruction day, in which students would be split into groups of 20 to better retain the class material and work one-on-one with a graduate student who was passionate about the coursework. Perhaps my favorite experiences at UMass Amherst involved the BDIC program, as the classes for the program were always intimate and insightful. Additionally, the program allowed my to design my own major program, which provided me with the opportunity to both take classes at Smith College and to study abroad in South Korea. These experiences are worth more than the loans I have yet to be able to pay off because my degree turned out to be useless, but hey, at least my experiences at UMass Amherst prepared me to move onto graduate study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a Pre-Law Junior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I had recently transferring in from Fitchburg State University and it is by far the best decision I have ever made to this date. At UMass Amherst I feel at home. I have made many friends and have been really involved in the Student Government Association and the Mock Trial Club. The food is amazing and the professors are extremely helpful. They do go the extra mile to help. As a transfer student I was really afraid of not fitting in and failing, however, I successfully completed my first semester there with a 3.57. I only reget not having applied there sooner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Umass is one of those places where you walk on to campus and can breathe a sigh of relief, because you just came home. It is the most amazing place, with number 1 dining In the NATION (the food is just stellar), the extracurriculars are amazing, and there is just so much opportunity. That is what I really want to emphasize, the opportunities. There are a wide variety of majors and minors to choose from, or you can build your own, there are literally thousands of clubs to join, my favorite being the outing club where you get to leave campus, hike, and adventure, and places to study and build relationships are many on campus. Umass is a place of trying new things, meeting new people, and getting to discover new things about yourself.
