This thread is to any Amherst student or parent such as our good buddy Evita. This is Dana's Dad asking about Amherst as a school where the kids have fun. We have now seen seven lacs all of which we truly enjoyed albeit some more than others. My D Dana found aspects of each school that she loved and some things she did not prefer. A constant about all of them except Haverford was their remote locations. By now we have heard the schools' info sessions review all of the things to do at each campus. Some of the schools like Bucknell revel in their parties and the kids told us how much fun they have. I got the same impression for Colgate. However I cannot for the life of me get any feel for Amherst being a school where the kids have a lot of fun. Amherst is up there at the top of my D's list but I have told her part of the college experience is to have four of the most fun years of your life. I did at NYU and I think all of our kids need to kick back, and chill on weekends.
So Amherst kids and those in the know do you have a great time in addition to the crushing work loads we all hear about at the top lacs. Please fill us in with the low down on fun. Thanks, Dana's Dad
