Dear Class of 2012,
Our first Homecoming as alumni is just around the corner! We hope you are making plans to join us Nov. 9-11 to connect with classmates and other alumni, meet the new 2016s that replaced us and visit the Socials where, to us, Davis will live on in spirit.
The weekend's biggest event--the football game against Williams College--takes place on Saturday at noon. Come cheer on the Lord Jeffs to victory in the final game on Pratt Field before its renovation! Then, stay for the post-game Homecoming lunch in the Cage with music by Amherst's Jazz Ensemble.
Other highlights of the weekend include:
In addition to Homecoming, the college creates numerous opportunities for us to connect with Amherst, including regional events, Reunion, Amherst Today, Amherst Reads and the Virtual Lecture Series. Check them out if you haven't already--they showcase what a great resource the Amherst community is to us as alumni. In turn, we hope you'll consider giving back in the future by volunteering or giving to the Alumni Fund.
Hope to see you all in November!
Go Amherst! Beat Williams!
Xuanji Wang '12

You also have a set of personal pages on Amherst's site:
After you log in, click the “My Amherst” link in the upper right. On your “My Amherst” page, you'll see links to courses you are taking, and you'll see tabs to pages containing the Campus Intranet, college announcements, and an RSS reader. You can use the RSS reader to subscribe to any news source that provides an RSS feed.
After you log in, click the “My Amherst” link in the upper right. In the My Amherst section, click the "My profile" tab. On that page, you will be able to upload a photo of yourself, which will appear in your Class "facebook" and on the class roster pages of the courses you're enrolled in. No one without an Amherst password will be able to see your photograph. To see how to upload your photo, watch this brief video.
After you log in, click the “My Amherst” link in the upper right. This is your own personal homepage, where you can post photos and news about yourself. Other students may write comments on your page (unless you decide to turn the comments off). Note that your homepage is by default visible to the outside world, so if you'd like to make it visible to students only, or everyone on campus only, you must change your settings.
