Bringing Amherst to You

Welcome Home!

What exactly is the Amherst experience all about? This short video highlights our beautiful campus and, more importantly, what makes this community feel like home.

We can't bring you to Amherst, so we're bringing Amherst to you.

Included in this video are aerial views of the Amherst College campus in all seasons, students participating in Orientation activities, views of the Mt. Holyoke range from the Main Quad, and scenes from move-in day. Images of our first-year residence hall, classes in session, ranging from science labs to small seminar settings, timelapse videos of the Science Center, inside the Beneski Museum of Natural History and Mead Art Museum, as well as a series of images showcasing Amherst students performing (musicians, dancers, singers), visiting Valentine Dining Hall, football games on Pratt Field, and of course, celebratory images from Commencement.

Students gather around Adirondack chairs. A view of Mt Holyoke Range is in the background.
