How will UMass be different from high school?
The college experience is different from high school in a few ways. You may be living on your own for the first time. Maybe you have a roommate. Or maybe you are managing your own money for the first time. The academics will be different too. Some classes are large, while others are small. They are taught at a faster pace. Using academic resources is the norm. The good news for you is that there are a lot of new people in your life ready to support your success and connect you with resources. Meet your team.
