The Hidden Pleasures of the Town of Amherst.

Everyone thinks that the town of Amherst is extremely small. It is small to a certain extent, but there are so many hidden gems out there that students, staff and faculty have yet to discover in Amherst and the surrounding area; especially, all of the amazing hidden places to eat. This week one of my fellow interns, Nicole, took me and the rest of the summer interns to this amazing ice cream place called Flayvors; it’s just about a 7 minute drive from campus and boy is it worth that 7 minute drive.

Amherst College Fashion!

What do Amherst College students wear??? Great question! In fact, that’s a question every prospective and incoming student subconsciously has in the back of his or her mind. If you walk around campus, you will see that Amherst is a very preppy campus. You will see Sperry’s, whale shirts, colorful pastel shorts and pants. However, there are so many different, fashionable, and just extremely interesting outfits that students are always sporting.

Basketball and Amherst Fashion

Today I spoke with a lovely lady who was totally in love in with the New England preppy fashion look and was also interested in playing basketball in college! If you read my post on “Amherst Fashion”, you’ll know that the preppy style is well represented here! Furthermore, both of our men’s and women’s basketball programs are absolutely stunning! Just in the past fours years they have combined for two National championships, seven National semifinal appearances and 6 NESCAC Championships. Over the past four years, both programs combined to have a 227-22 record for a 91% winning percentage!
