Holiday: Patriots' Day
April 15, 2019
Patriots' Day is a legal holiday in Massachusetts that commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution.
UMass Amherst's mascot, Sam the Minuteman, is a representation of the civilian colonists who fought in the Revolutionary War. They were known as Minutemen because they would be ready for battle at a minute's notice.
No classes are held today at UMass Amherst and most university offices are closed.
Monday class schedule will be followed on Wednesday, April 17.
