What I eat in a day

Here at UMass, the variety of foods offered across campus are endless. Through different flavors and choices, you are guaranteed to find something you like, while maintaining healthy options, too. It’s no wonder UMass has been ranked #1 campus dining four years in a row! Here are my usual daily go-tos on campus.

Campus Safety at UMass

UMass recognizes the importance of campus security, and does the absolute most they can to make sure each and every student feels safe while they’re here. Whether that be walking to your dorm late at night, or opening your building door for someone — the university stresses the importance of feeling comfortable and secure here on campus.

Thoughts from a UMass Parent

When applying to college, my mom encouraged me to attend a school where I thought I’d be happiest. Of course, she wanted me to choose a major that would supply me with job security, but she wanted me to enjoy my four years wherever I decided to go to. Due to my own lack of career direction, she guided me to consider what I knew I liked. For example, when thinking of what I wanted to major in, she encouraged that I do something that entailed working with people, because she knows the sociable side of me. Ultimately, I am now a communication and journalism student, and I attribute the success of my college journey to my mother.
