Hi! My name is Kallan and I am a sophomore Marketing major here at UMass! I grew up in Framingham, Massachusetts, about an hour and 45 minutes from Amherst, and am the daughter of a VERY proud UMass alumna. It's safe to say that I've been bleeding maroon and white since birth. On campus, I am a member of the Women in Business Club and the Isenberg Marketing Club, and am a member of IMC's community service committee. I am also part of the SophoMORE "Innovations and Entrepreneurship" community in MacKimmie Hall, following my participation in the Isenberg Fellows RAP in Pierpont Hall last year. I'm always happy to talk about what life at UMass is like, so feel free to email me with any questions at!

My Content

Find a Gym Buddy!

After years of being on sports teams right through high school, I knew it would be a big change when I came to UMass and no longer had that team aspect when it came to working out. Admittedly, I definitely did not go to the gym as much as I probably should have during my first semester.

Pulse Cafe

A vegetarian and vegan heaven, Pulse cafe and market is located right down the road from UMass in Hadley and is 100% plant-based. While slightly pricey, the menu has a variety of healthy and sustainable breakfast and lunch options.


With such a big campus, UMass is home to hundreds of student clubs and organizations for you to get involved with! Officially referred to as Registered Student Organizations -- RSOs for short -- there is bound to be at least one that sparks your interest.

Amazon Prime at UMass

As an incoming freshman, you'll have the opportunity to use your UMass student email to sign up for six months of Amazon Prime for free! The offer is usually only available during the August-September months so keep an eye out around the start of the semester to take advantage of this deal! 

Why I Chose UMass

As an in-state student, it is pretty easy to guess some of the reasons why I chose to join the UMass family. Amherst is within driving distance from home, I was already comfortable and familiar with Western Mass. since I have family out here, and of course nothing beats in-state tuition.
