Eco-Rep Application

Do you have an interest in raising student awareness about environmental issues and educating peers about environmentally sustainable behavior? If so, you are meant to be a freshman Eco-Rep!  Please complete this application form and submit it by the posted due date.  One student (ideally a resident) from each freshman dormitory will be an Eco-Rep, selected by committee through this application process. The position will be year-long.

Eco-Reps will communicate regularly with students in their dormitories about the “whys and hows” of sustainable living, on campus and beyond. This will be done through conversations, fliers, dorm-wide e-mail announcements, dorm activities, etc. Eco-Reps will also serve as liaisons between the College administration and dorm residents for temporary or ongoing programs and events such as recycling and energy competitions. In order to keep the College administration informed, Eco-Reps would also keep tabs on their dorm residents’ adoption of and attitudes towards sustainability measures.

Due date for freshmen: Sunday, October 11th

Amherst College Identification Number
Dorm Name for Current School Year
(ie: Fall Only, Spring Only, Fall & Spring)

Commencement/Reunion Housing Application

On-Campus Housing for Commencement/Reunion Weeks

The Residence Halls close for the Spring Semester on May 15th at 5 p.m.  Graduating seniors are the only ones permitted to stay in their Spring Assighments.  All non-graduating students will need to vacate by that time. We recognize the need for some non-graduating students do remain to work for Commencement or Reunion week events.  These students will be assigned temporary Commencement/Reunion Week HOusing Assignments.  Unless otherwise notified, non-graduating seniors ARE NOT allowed to stay in their Spring Housing Assignments during these two weeks.

The majority of our housing is reserved for visiting guests to our campus. Available housing is limited and overstocked.  Please note that there is very little housing available for non-graduating students during the weeks of Commencement and Reunion (May 15 – May 29).  Coolidge, Crossett, Stone and Pond Halls will be unavailable as they are being prepared for demolition, so this year requests such as these will be even more difficult.  If you are granted permission to stay you should plan on sharing a room as there are few single rooms available.

Housing is primarily limited to students who have been hired to work for the college to help facilitate with commencement week and Reunion week. If you have been hired to work for Commencement and Reunion you do not need to submit this form. We recognize that there are other students who are not employed specifically for Commencement/Reunion work who would like to stay on campus for various reasons. There is no guarantee that we can meet your request, but to help facilitate our collection of requests, we ask that you fill out the form below.

Note: Those not working for Commencement/Reunion will receive notice of their permission to stay at the earliest convenience. Students should start to consider alternative housing options for this time period if we are unable to provide the desired accommodation.
