The University of Massachusetts Amherst

7. Will I meet other students outside of my RAP?

YES.  While a RAP is intended to foster a sense of community among its participating students, it is not designed to isolate you from other students at the university.  In fact, there are many opportunities to connect with other students at UMass Amherst -including students who live in your residence hall but are not affiliated with your RAP, as well as students you meet in your classes on the main campus.  

You are encouraged to explore different ways to get involved academically and socially at UMass-talk with your Resident Assistant (RA) or a Peer Mentor to find out about the many opportunities that UMass offers!
