Finding a Smaller Community within a Large Community

This is a very large campus located in the heart of the town of Amherst. There are a number ways to get involved on campus and a number of different clubs and a lot of opportunities to create new clubs if the one you want isn't available. Dining services although expensive is very good and one of the best in the nation. The dining halls are definitely a place to socialize and meet other students. There is a place for every personality and type of student, one just needs to explore and find theirs.
