  • Amherst beat my brain with a stick, teaching me how to form my own opinions clearly. I'm grateful for the punishment. UMass would have been easier. And it would have been easier to meet girls there (I'm talkin' 1958 to 1963). Amherst was too snooty (I took a year's leave of absence to breathe the air the rest of the world was breathing). But for all that, I'm glad I graduated from the place on the south side of town. I got out with a "gentleman's C" and a good vision of who I was and what I wanted to do. And oh well, let's hear it for the snoot factor, which always gives me a leg up when I tell people I went to school there.
  • This school has a lot of problems with rape. They don't protect women from rape on college and don't prosecute rapists. They give male rapists diplomas. This school lets media frenzy influence who they accuse of rape. Protect your daughter, don't let her get raped! Avoid this school at all costs.
  • It has been an amazing experience, so far. And my child loves it! All a parent can ask for!
  • From its Foundation, Amherst has truly been a college of numerous opportunites and has challenged its students to think ahead through rigorous courses. Rather than critizing such a marvelous place by giving immaterial reasons, think for a moment what would the World be without Amherst? I think any intellectual person would realize the vitality of the contribution to development and modernization of human mind &life in general.
  • The most amazing place on the world.
