Family Weekend

Thank You!

Thank you to the record breaking number of students and families who participated in Family Weekend 2014. This year we launched a new Family Weekend tradition with our Food Drive to benefit the Amherst Survival Center. We are delighted to share that UMass Amherst families donated 1,074 pounds of food for Thanksgiving boxes. We are truly touched by your generosity. Another new effort announced at Family Weekend is our UMAPA Advisory Council. To learn more about the council and how to apply, please click here.

We hope you all had as much fun making memories as we did. Some photos of the weekend are posted on the university's Facebook page. The date for Family Weekend 2015 will be available at the end of Spring Semester. We look forward to hosting you on campus again soon!
