You, and all students at UMass, have a compelling story. Some of you are the first in your families to go to college. Some of you transferred to UMass from another school. Some of you grew up far away from Massachusetts and some of you have lived here your entire lives.
No matter what stories you bring to UMass, we think it’s important that you have the opportunity to tell them.
Why do our stories matter? They:
- Bring people together
- Validate our experiences
- Help us learn more about others
- Teach us about ourselves
- Help us be empathetic
- Strengthen our communities
We’re continually thinking of new ways to connect and tell our stories. Follow along in this section to learn where you can do the same. Also, be sure to check out CoJourn and Project Connect.
