We’re delighted to announce that the College has a new on-line travel portal which can be used to make air, hotel, car, and rail reservations (https://hub.fcm.travel/amherst). Your login is your Amherst College email and you will prompted to set up your password the first time you log in. In addition to best in class fare selections, other benefits of the tool include 24/7 worldwide emergency support, the ability to use your frequent flyer and membership numbers, travel policy guides, and phone access to travel agents as required. While training will be offered on campus in the near future, you’re invited to join one of our upcoming web classes on June 18 or June 25 from 10–10:45 a.m.

Python is a freely distributable high-level programming language that has become very popular for everything from scripting applications and web-page generation to solving scientific problems. It shares many basic characteristics with languages like Mathematica, Matlab and Labview, and has an extensive set of numerical and scientific modules. In this class we will use Python to build instructions describing a scientific problem, and solve it using the college computing cluster.
This workshop is in three parts:
Monday through Wednesday, June 18 – 20, 6–9 p.m.; light dinner provided at 5:30 p.m.
(additional meetings may be arranged if there is interest).
