Sonali Chigurupati


Hi! I'm Sonali and I'm a sophomore at UMass Amherst. I'm majoring in Res Econ, but I just applied to Isenberg as an OIM (operations informational management) major. Aside from classes I write for the opinion and editorial section of the Massachusetts Daily Collegian and work for CADRE as a coordinator for diversity in enrollment. I'm a big fan of the UMass rec center as well as UMass dining. Some of my goals include getting into Isenberg and increasing the enrollment and retention rates of Black and Hispanic students.

Living a Healthy Life at UMass Amherst

UMass rec center

During my time at UMass Amherst I have lived a very healthy lifestyle. The only freshman 15 I gained was from muscle because UMass Amherst gave me access to good food and a great gym. There is definitely a healthy aura around the campus in the sense that students are given the positive resources through food and exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Personally, my favorite dining hall is Hampshire Dining Hall in Southwest Residential Area where I roll sushi. UMass Dining creates many jobs for students. Additionally, we have a great rec center that is accessible to all undergraduate students. Students are also welcome to work at the rec center as workout instructors or front desk associates.
