Thank you to the record breaking number of students and families who participated in Family Weekend 2016. This was the third year we held our Family Weekend Food Drive to benefit the Amherst Survival Center. We are delighted to share that UMass Amherst families donated 1,551 pounds of food for Thanksgiving boxes. That’s approximately 30% more than last year. We are truly touched by your generosity.
We also extend our congratulations to Bryanna Walker, Class of 2020, and her family, who are the winners of the 2016 Student Alumni Association Tuition Raffle!
We hope you all had as much fun making memories as we did. The date for Family Weekend 2017 will be announced next semester. We look forward to hosting you on campus again soon!
