Greetings esteemed CC'ers.
Soooo, Dramacratic and myself want to drive up to Amherst together (cause we live like, right next to eachother -kidding!). We wanted to do it during Mid-Winter Recess - Second week of February.
For people that actually go to Amherst...when is the best time to visit? Why? And would you be available to give "insider" tours?
I know a Sophomore at the 'herst. The only problem is that he's on the Lax team so if DC & I only stay for like one day and not do an overnight, it would be hard for him to show me around because he'd have Lax Pre-Season practice.
Also - how are overnights arranged? I know that Amherst doesn't offer overnights but I remember reading something that says you can arrange it with actual students who are at the school. Can anyone confirm this?
Ohhh! And is it practical to take the Amtrak from NYC? I'm fairly certain that one would need to hail a cab from the station to go to the campus...so that's a good amount of money for just one visit.
Thanks!! Any other information regarding visits (what's a must to see, etc) will be greatly appreciated.
