The University of Massachusetts, Amherst
has numerous memorial tributes on campus. The memorials are a celebration of life, retirement, friendship, or professional achievement. This is evident by the numerous benches, sculptures, plantings, and gardens on campus. There are unique pieces of art ranging from creations of an artist to the living treasures, along with numerous memorials to keep the remembrance alive. These can be found as part of our of beautiful landscaping, dating from the late 1800's to the present.
Please take time to view the memorial tributes, both on our web page and around our campus. The list is an on-going project; if you can add information or additional detail, please contact us. We would love to add more information as the collection of memorials expands.
