This is a past event

Missing the spaces on campus where you could comfortably show up as yourself? Missing meaningful, spontaneous social interactions that all add up to feeling connected and a part of? While there is so much diversity in who we are and how we show up in the world as Amherst students, we are all going through the shared experience of college in the pandemic... Which for sophomores, is a shared experience of college away from college. Which is why we are creating a space for Amherst sophomores (and any other students, on or off-campus who want in!) that will reinvent the Val-sit, go further then a cross-quad hello, and overcome all the space between us. Take the Leap 2.0 is an every-other-week virtual meet-up throughout Spring 2021 that will create connection amidst the distance, find meaning in our and others’ experiences, and continue building the friendships and memories that college is made of.
