Student Bloggers

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

2018-2019 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 first-years to seniors, with majors from Anthropology to Statistics, and hometowns from east to west. 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. They'll be happy to hear from you! There's also a collection of student blogs from previous years for an even more varied look at "Life at Amherst." Plus, you can meet more students at our Tour Guide and Diversity Intern pages. So many students, so many different viewpoints!
