AMHERST, Mass.-Samuel C. Haynes, assistant director of campus life for student activities at Oswego State University, will become the new assistant dean of students and director of the campus center/student activities at Amherst College on June 12.
"My philosophy is that student activities play an important role in campus life," says Haynes, "and I hope to build on and even enhance that tradition at Amherst." Haynes, who received B.A. and M.A. degrees in English from the State University of New York College at Fredonia, will oversee all aspects of student activities and all programs at the Keefe Campus Center.
