Student Bloggers

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

2016-2017 School Year Blogs

Each year, several current Amherst students share their experiences of Amherst by authoring their own blogs. This year's group represents a variety of hometowns, backgrounds, academic and extra-curricular interests. They are an active and talented bunch and 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 and Amherst." Plus, meet more students at our Tour Guide and Diversity Interns pages. So many students, so many different viewpoints!
