Winter Break 2016-2017

Register for Winter Recess Here!

Happy Break!

The Office of Student Affairs will sponsor social activities to bring together students who remain on campus.  Vacation can also be a great opportunity to explore your surroundings --- visit parts of the campus you seldom appreciate, or explore the other four campuses in the Five College Consortium. 

Register to be on campus

We ask all students to register for on campus housing.  This provides us a list of students on campus on various days allowing us to know who is on campus for security reasons and to help us provide the best possible service. The Housing form can be found here

Want to get connected?

Cohan Common Room is serving as Winter Break Headquarters.  It will be stocked with food such as bread, eggs, ramen, tea, and coffee throughout the break!  

If you have any questions, please contact Student Affairs at studentaffairs@amherst.edu

 

This page is intended for students who are not part of the week-long meal program.  Confirmed meal program participants who indicated attendance on Thursday will already be included.

Want to enjoy a delicious meal with other Amherst students on Thanksgiving day?

The Association of Amherst Students and the Dean of Students Office are pleased to invite all students who are on campus for Thanksgiving day to share a catered meal from the Black Sheep.  The menu is as follows: roasted turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, and pies (pumpkin, blueberry, and apple) a la mode.  This meal will be served in Lewis-Sebring (the faculty/staff dining commons in Valentine) from approximately 4:00-6:00pm on November 24.

The deadline to register is Wednesday, November 16 at 4:00pm.  Please note that we have to have a firm head count for catering purposes.  We appreciate your cooperation.
