Continuing public health concerns related to COVID-19 preclude our receiving visitors at Amherst or providing any on-campus programming until further notice, but there is still so much that we want to share with you about our vibrant community. There's a lot to know!
Although in-person campus visits are not possible, we are delighted to offer a schedule of virtual campus visits - information session and campus tours - that will replicate as closely as possible the experience of an in-person campus visit. Learn more about "Visiting Amherst Virtually."
