Student Bloggers

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

2019-2020 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 Computer Science to Sociology, 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. 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 Outreach Intern pages. So many students, so many different viewpoints!
