Late Night Events

Amherst College After Dark (AC After Dark) is a program within the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership that provides consistent, late-night social options to Amherst College students every weekend while school is in session. AC After Dark offers a variety of programs throughout the semester such as live entertainment, film screenings, arts and crafts, off-campus excursions and many other social events catering to the interests of students like you. Some of the programming is formally arranged by the department, while other programs are a collaborative effort with student organizations or other campus offices.

Have A Great Idea, But Need Funding? This program invites On-Campus Departments, Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), and any interested students to apply for co-sponsorship funding to put on an Amherst After Dark event. We look forward to collaborating with you to provide students with interactive programs on Friday or Saturday Nights between 8 pm and 2 am.
