What does it mean to “belong” at Amherst College? It’s a question that is complicated and complex. Feeling that you belong here does not require you to change who you are; in fact, it actually asks you to be your full self—and to help cultivate an inclusive, equitable community with people who are different from you. At Amherst, we aim to connect across difference, to strengthen relationships, to build a community rooted in a culture of caring. To start the conversation, the Belong campaign asked students to describe, through photography and in their own words, their sense of belonging at Amherst. We invite you to join us on the journey of discovering how each of us belongs at Amherst College. — #AmherstIBelong
