Reviews for University of Massachusetts, Amherst
UMass is a large school that can either overwhelm or provide a launchpad for almost any direction. It's easy to skate by without distinction, but if you're willing to put in the effort you can get a first rate education. Your success is entirely on you.
The 5 college system allows you to take classes at any of the other schools in the area (Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke and Hampshire). Effectively, this means that for the price of UMass tuition, you can take advantage of some of the most selective and rigorous college education in the country. Too few students take advantage of this unique opportunity, but those who do are much richer for it in experience.
The campus life is a mix of parties big and small mostly. If that's not how you want to spend your time then you'll have to work a bit harder to find your niche. That said, given all the schools, the multitude of cultural goings-on every week and the natural beauty of the Pioneer Valley, your options aren't limited.
