"As a new student to the University of Massachusetts Amherst LSAMP has already helped me in so many ways. Not only have I made incredible connections with my classmates and professor but I have a family on campus. LSAMP has also given me the opportunity to explore academic areas that I never thought I would. This is only the beginning and I can't wait to see what LSAMP has in store for me this year."
