Challah for Charity
The bread making, led by the UMass chapter of Challah for Hunger, an international organization, takes place several times per year over three days: one day to make the dough, one day to braid and bake, and one day to sell. After baking and braiding, UMass students sell the fresh challah in the Campus Center and donate the proceeds; this semester they chose to support the Amherst Survival Center.

Student-Run Businesses Thrive
The businesses, seven in all, run as cooperatives managed by their student members. Each strives to meet a campus need. Overall, they employ 115 students and generate nearly $700,000 in annual revenues. Sylvan Snack Bar, the oldest business, has been feeding hungry customers on the outskirts of campus since the '70s. Sweets and More, in Field Residential Hall, provides late-night milkshakes and bagels. Greeno Sub Shop, in Greenough Residential Hall, serves tasty subs and offers live musical performances.
