UMass Amherst in the spring

There really is no better way to get a feel for a campus than being there in person and soaking in the environment. When you visit the University of Massachusetts Amherst, you'll talk to student tour guides who will provide you with insight about what it's like to be a student here. You'll walk past the campus pond, where you'll envision yourself relaxing or studying under some trees. You'll eat our award winning food - rated # 1 in campus dining by the Princeton review! You'll tour our incredible new energy efficient buildings with the newest technologies to enhance learning. And you will really be able to picture yourself at UMass, if this is the right fit for you.

Schedule an SBS-Specific Tour

Student-led SBS tours are offered Monday through Friday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, during the fall and spring semesters. Tours begin in the SBS, Advising Resource Center (ARC) in 128 Thompson Hall, and will provide an overview of SBS academics and student life. Classroom visits are also a possibility depending on the timing of the scheduled tour.

To schedule an SBS tour, please email Dominick Usher. Dominick is the Assistant Director of the ARC and will assist you with making the necessary arrangements.

Spring open houses

During the spring semester, UMass Amherst holds a series of Open Houses for accepted students. These events are a great way for students and their families to learn more about UMass Amherst and the UMass College of Social & Behavioral Sciences (SBS) before finalizing their college choice. Spend the day touring the campus, meeting faculty in SBS majors, and hearing from SBS students and staff.

Accepted students must register for Open Houses on the UMass Undergraduate Admissions website (click on Admitted Students Visit Days). When registering, be sure to check the box indicating your interest in SBS.
