Favorite Question Asked on Tour: My favorite question asked on tour is “Why did you choose UMass?”
As much as I love California, I came to UMass Amherst for a new experience and because I knew I could be me without being put in any boxes. There is no one type of UMass Amherst student and everyone is doing something they are passionate about which initially drew me to UMass Amherst. I have really appreciated the limitless opportunities the university offers whether it be in academics or in personal growth. Although it is a little colder, I have loved all my time at UMass Amherst and it's definitely flying by!
