Amherst Write-In

10:00 am - 3:00 pm Science Center, d103 (Science Library Classroom)

There’s no need to toil away in isolation when everyone has papers to write! Spend this Friday of reading period in a supportive, quiet environment to make some progress on those final projects. The Writing Center will provide snacks, coffee and drop-in writing consultations.

Students Only

Women of Color Luncheon

Come join us in the WGC for conversations about womanhood and gender on campus and in higher education. This is a space for women of color that aims to build community solidarity and intersectional understandings of identity.

Knitting at Noon

Are you a knitter who has longed to knit with others? Have you always wanted to be a knitter, but are intimidated by all of the paraphernalia, complicated stitches and impossible-to-understand instructions? Then join us for some low-key yarn work and conversation. All students, staff and faculty are welcome. Please bring a brown-bag or grab-and-go lunch to sustain you.

Join us for hot chocolate and travel signatures in the CISE (103 Keefe).

Travel Signatures and Hot Chocolate!

Are you an international student traveling over winter break? Do you need a travel signature? Join us at CISE before leaving campus for break! We'll have hot chocolate and will be providing I-20/DS-2019 travel signatures for F-1 and J-1 visa holding students!

Email cise@amherst.edu with any questions or concerns.

Color & Chill

3:00 pm Ford Hall, Event Space

Come take a study break and destress! There will be pizza, cookies, ice cream, coloring books and you could even watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine!

"Hodie" Benefit for Sidney F. Smith Toy Fund

This year’s choral concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 14, at Amherst College’s Buckley Recital Hall and will feature singers from local choruses and the Five Colleges. There is no admission fee, and aside from printing and publicity expenses, all donations will benefit the Toy Fund.

Hodie, whose title means “this day” in Latin, was first produced by choral singer Brit Albritton in 2004, while Deanna Joseph, then an assistant director of choral activities at Smith College, served as the program’s artistic director.

Arianne Abela, director of the Amherst College choral program, said that the Hodie shows were essential in steering her toward a career in music.

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).
