UMass Amherst is an extremely large campus which makes meeting new people fun, easy, and exciting. Despite this large campus, I find that the department I am in, the Music Department, large enough to be fun and engaging, but small enough to be intimate and easy to learn in. I find that this versatility is a common theme all across the university, something the school strives to achieve and I love it. I also enjoy seeing how the university is really looking towards the future with building renovations and new construction projects. It is really very exciting to be apart of a school who is developing a stronger and stronger reputation as an 'academic superpower' and also very honorable to be apart of something with such an outstanding, positive reputation. Overall I am extremely happy I decided to attend UMass, I could not picture myself anywhere else!
