Alumni Requests for Faculty Speakers

Given that travel is limited and that events will be virtual into the fall, Advancement would be grateful if you would share whether alumni have been in touch with you directly about speaking at or moderating virtual events. There have been an increasing number of Zoom gatherings, and Advancement is here to help you manage requests (and your response to such requests) and offer support, technical and otherwise. Sharing your involvement with Advancement will also help in our planning. Thank you!

Poetry in the Pandemic

In the time of uncertainty and anxiety, poetry brings us hope, inspiration and reflection. Have you been reading or writing poems in the pandemic? Do you want to share the lines you've read or written with the Amherst community? Please fill out the form: https://forms.gle/AqT9ofE76gL9edCp6 or email your response to Haoran Tong '23 at htong23@amherst.edu.

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."
