Summer 2015

Dear Amherst College students, faculty, staff, family and friends,                                          

Students’ lives at Amherst College are vibrant and complex webs of intellectual and interpersonal pursuits. The College has developed resources across many decades to provide for a campus environment that nurtures discourse through research, dissent, skepticism and debate. We expect that our students will actively engage with these resources and with each other toward a better understanding of self and communities, local and distant.
