All incoming new students will participate in a 2.5 day immersive experience that will expand your horizons creatively, while giving you the opportunity to meet other new students with similar interests.  LEAP which stands for Learn, Explore, Activate, and Participate, happen both on- and off-campus and are available in a variety of areas. Students will have the opportunity to indicate which LEAP program they would prefer in mid- to late-June.

All LEAP programs will happen from Thursday, September 1st-Saturday, September 3rd. Students will return back to campus on Saturday, September 3rd at around noon.

Please use the left navigation panel to read carefully what each LEAP program offers before making your official selection in ACdata. Students will receive an email from the Office of Student Affairs sometime in late June to make their rankings and selections in acdata.amherst.edu.
