What Is a Squad?

A squad is a small community of students led by an Orientation Leader (OL). This group of students meets four times during Orientation to get to know one another, discuss panels, and ask questions of each other and their OLs. After Orientation, all squads become First- Year or Transfer Scholar seminar courses. These groups are smaller communities, which serve as an introduction to the multi-faceted diversity of our Amherst community.

How Do I Find My Squad/Group?

Your squad and group number is printed on your name tag. Your whole squad is in the same group. If at any point you get lost, there are lots of folks wearing Orientation t-shirts (blue or green) who are here to assist you.
