Student Bloggers

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

Summer 2019 Blogs

Every summer here at Amherst, several current students work full-time in our Office of Admission as summer interns --- leading campus tours, answering phones, participating in group information sessions, greeting students and families, and generally making this a friendly, lively summer spot!

This summer, our six interns will be sharing their experiences of Amherst --- and their summer adventures --- by authoring their own blogs. They are an active and diverse bunch --- from sophomores to seniors, with majors from English to Economics to Mathematics to Philosophy (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. 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 Interns pages.

So many students, so many different perspectives!
