Continuing to Find the Best Students

An overwhelming majority of alumni who responded to my letter have been supportive of our plans to uphold Amherst’s time-honored tradition of continually expanding our efforts to enroll the best students from across the country and around the world: “The College’s concern for students of meager means…was really appreciated” – Alumnus, Class of1936 “I realize that the direction you have chosen is both difficult and costly. But one thing I have learned in my 75+ years is that there is no such thing as a free lunch…I believe you are doing the right things and going in the right directions.” – Alumnus, Class of 1952
