Hi everyone! My name is Leah Calabro and I am a senior this year. I am double majoring in History and Dance with a minor in Judaic Studies. I am a member of the Commonwealth Honors College, and I am a Co-President of the RSO Alive With Dance. I interned at the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide and Memory Studies last fall and I am currently interning for a global law firm through the LaRussa Internship Program. I’m in the process of applying to law school right now and I hope to one day work in international and human rights law. I have loved my time here at UMass and I can’t believe I’m a senior already! I want to help people take advantage of everything this school has to offer, so if you have any questions about balancing coursework, academic requirements, studying abroad, internships, or anything else I am happy to help!
Hello! I am a rising junior at the university this fall with a double major in History and Political Science. I work in the Procrastination Station on campus, and am a member of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority. In the future, I plan on teaching secondary education with a focus in United States history and government. I have absolutely loved my time at UMass so far and look forward to helping your time be the best it can be! Thanks again! Tess Manderville
Hello! I'm Stephanie and I am a junior at UMass double majoring in history and psychology with a minor in political science. In the future, I plan on attending law school.

Hello everyone! My name is Genevieve Weidner (also known as Genna). I am a junior History and Political Science major from Dublin, New Hampshire. I am involved in the UMass Marching Band, where I am the Uniform Manager. I am also the President of Sigma Alpha Iota, which is a music fraternity here at UMass. I am very passionate about history, and hope to someday be a historical researcher and potentially a history professor. In addition to helping students learn more about the history department, I am also knowledgeable about balancing multiple classes and minors, studying abroad, and completing general education requirements. I can't wait to meet you all!
