Top 13 UMass Treasures

It's almost time for our first long weekend of the semester. Many of you may be headed home for the first time, expecting to see your friends and families, and get LOTS of questions about UMass.  So, instead of a Tip of the Week, I'd like to remind you of some great things about UMass. Be sure to take advantage of our lovely campus when you get back.

Zoë's Top 13 UMass Treasures (in no order) 
  • 88 major subjects... or design your own As a large research university, we have excellent resources in every department.
  • Great dining halls, using more local food than ever. All the options! All the visiting chefs! BabyBerk! Learn about the on-campus permaculture garden and Garden Share program if you want to get involved.
  • 5 College Consortium There's nowhere else like it. Take classes for no additional charge at any of the five prestigious colleges in the area. Take advantage of five separate faculties and student bodies.
  • Tallest university library in the world, open 24 hours on weeknights Learn about library services, including the Learning Commons and the Writing Center. Plus we've got the Procrastination Station.
