"While I am thrilled to have been a part of the greater UMass community, I don't believe any department would have been as welcoming, encouraging, and kind as the History of Art and Architecture, and for that I am truly grateful."
"This award validates the hard work I put in between my junior and senior years where I feel I truly began to represent the department in an honorable way."
"Even in these uncertain times, I feel prepared to enter post-undergraduate life with confidence because of the expriences this program has given me."
"I am happy to say that every single class I took buried those doubts deep, art is in every aspect of life and in understanding that you can better understand people."
"I am extremely grateful for your gift since it will help tremendously in alleviating the stresses of starting anew as I continue to strive for a career in academia."
"I am continuously grateful for the opportunities provided to both students and alumni by the History of Art & Architecture Department, and am extremely satisfied with my decision to complete my Bachelor of Arts at the University of Massachussetts Amherst."
"I would like to say a hearty 'Thank you,' not only for this award but for all the hard work the department puts in to create such an engaging, cohesive, and stimulating program."
