Every year here at Amherst, several current students work for our Office of Admission as bloggers. They are an active and diverse bunch with majors from Economics to Psychology to Mathematics (and more), from hometowns near and far. Their weekly blogs provide an up-close-and-personal view of Amherst from a variety of perspectives and experiences.
