2022-2023 School Year Blogs

Every academic year here at Amherst, several current students work for our Office of Admission as bloggers. As our campus transitions to being fully in-person again, our students will still be sharing their experiences of Amherst by authoring their own blogs. They are an active and diverse bunch with majors from Political Science to Psychology to Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought;(and more), from hometowns near and far. Their weekly blogs will give you an up-close-and-personal view of Amherst from a variety of perspectives and experiences.

If you have any questions about Amherst, feel free to email any of the bloggers. You can also check out student blogs from previous years for an even more varied perspective of life at Amherst. Plus, meet more students at our Tour Guides and Diversity Outreach Interns pages.

So many students, so many different perspectives!
