History on the Wall

In the Octagon, an alumnus added new faces to a mural that has inspired many. 

by Emily Gold Boutilier

Kevin Soltau ’01 will not soon forget the week he slept in the Octagon. It was the summer before his senior year, and after months of research, he was painting a mural of black alumni who’d inspired him. On a ladder, brush in hand, he worked all day and into the night.

This is How a Superhero Sounds

April 12, 2016

By Rachael Hanley 

From the time she watched her first XMen movie, Ashley “Monty” Montgomery has been, as she admits, obsessed with superheroes.

The Amherst senior traces this obsession to her dad who, when she was younger, let Montgomery and her brother indulge in weekends of Star Wars and Star Trek.

By the time she left for college, superhero movies were Montgomery’s cure for homesickness; they were how she wanted to spend those rare chunks of free time. They were also what inspired her to sign up for a class, that would lead to a paper, an independent study, a radio show, and some intriguing discoveries about the treatment of genders.
