Explore Possibilities

College is a time to explore your interests, build a foundation for your future life, and find your passion(s). It may take a little while, but you'll find a place where you belong here. And, you'll be able to stretch and grow in a safe and supportive environment while discovering what most interests you.

Learning what you love to do is the best way to put you on the path to fulfillment, but you have to try a lot of different things first. Show up during your time at UMass, not just attending classes and getting good grades, but exploring the myriad of opportunities our campus offers. Join a student group, perform in a theater production, learn a craft or engage in community service. Take a look at what's waiting for you.

Good questions to ask yourself:

  • What's stopping me from moving forward with exploring the world around me?
  • What brings me the most joy and satisfaction in life?
  • Could I make the world a better place?
