Throughout reading period and finals week, the Mead will offer lots of activities to help you de-stress with art. Join us for bottomless coffee, massages and more! We also have comfortable chairs, plenty of outlets and great lighting to provide an inspirational place for you to study. The Mead is open until midnight on school nights (but closed on Mondays).
If you want a share, stop by the greenhouse on Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 2 to 5:30 p.m. with $25 cash or check to get some veggies!
This week's share includes garlic, sweet potatoes, acorn squash, kabocha squash, butternut squash, popcorn, cabbage, fingerling potato, white potato, beets and purple top turnips. Fill your bag and take 2 extra squash, some rosemary and decorative gourds as well.
Amherst Asian Student Association, Mount Holyoke Asian American Students in Action and Smith Pan Asians in Action are collaborating to put together an Asian/American Story Slam event! The event will be held on Dec. 12 at 6 p.m. in the Powerhouse at Amherst College. Dinner from local restaurants will be provided!
A Story Slam is a live storytelling event where participants each have five minutes to share a story based on a chosen theme. Similar to an open mic, slammers are encouraged to tell stories they’re excited to share with an audience-- whether they be funny, surprising, confusing or heartwarming.
Our theme for this story slam is "Asian/American (Un)Belonging."
Celebrate the last day of classes by getting a massage at the Mead. This will kick off our study at the Mead series, in which we provide unlimited coffee, tea and cocoa all day and all night during finals period. We'll serve cookies and treats every evening to help fuel your work.
Massages are free and open to Amherst College students. Sign-up is required and will be first come first served on the evening of December 12.
