Student Bloggers

Each school year and summer, current Amherst students volunteer to share their experiences and perspectives of Amherst by authoring their own blogs.

2017-2018 School Year Blogs

Each academic year, Amherst students volunteer to share their experiences and perspectives of Amherst by authoring their own blogs. This year we have a lively and diverse group --  from sophomores to seniors, with majors from Anthropology to Psychology to Statistics, from hometowns across the U.S. and around the world. Their weekly posts will give you an up-close-and-personal view of Amherst from a variety of perspectives. Check out their blogs to learn more about each of them and to read about their experiences as Amherst students. If you have questions about Amherst, feel free to email any of them. There's also a collection of student blogs from previous years for an even more varied perspective of “Life at Amherst.”  Plus, you can meet more students at our Tour Guide and Diversity Interns pages. So many students, so many different viewpoints!
