UMass Amherst Labs

In trying to choose where to go, I have heard that the science labs at UMass Amherst aren’t the best and that often students have to go to the neighboring schools such as Smith or Amherst College to use their labs since UMass’ isn’t adequate.
Is this true, or is that outdated and UMass’ science lab has been updated and is new and great?

UMass! Congrats
