“A Mammoth History”: Participants will explore the migration of mammoths into North America, a little about life in the herd, the extinction of mammoths, the discovery of the Amherst College mammoth, and the selection of the mammoth as the first official Amherst College mascot.
In the time of uncertainty and anxiety, poetry brings us hope, inspiration and reflection. Have you been reading or writing poems in the pandemic?

We welcome all students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents of Amherst College to participate! Help us lead a poetic life to overcome the difficult circumstances. We plan to compile all submissions into an anthology titled "Amherst Poetry in the Pandemic."
