Weekly Preivew: April 28 - May 2

Congratulations!  You've made it to the end of the semester!  
The last day of classes is Wednesday, April 30 and finals start on Friday, May 2.

There will be an R1 Exemption Test at 7:00pm on Monday, April 28 in Marcus 131.  Passing the R1 exam (at least 12 out of 20 correct) will satisfy the R1 requirement for graduation but will not result in the awarding of any credits.  A student ID and a #2 pencil are required. A calculator is recommended. There is no limit on the number of times a student may take this test. The focus of this exam is to measure knowledge of basic math skills.

Celebrate Founder's Day! Join all of UMass on Goodell Lawn for a Campus Cookout on Tuesday, April 29 from 11:00 am-2:00 pm.  It was on April 29, 1863 that Governor John Andrews signed the charter to form Massachusetts Agricultural College, creating the first Board of Trustees for what would become Massachusetts State College in 1931 and the University of Massachusetts in 1947.  The Campus Cookout is free to all students, faculty, and staff. Rain or shine, we hope you will be able to join in on the fun as we honor the faculty, staff, and students who make UMass Amherst a great place to be.

Isenberg School of Management applications are due by 5:00pm on Thursday, May 1.  Late applications will not be accepted and students who miss the deadline will have to wait until the end of the Fall 2014 semester to apply for Spring 2015.  Applications are online:

The Academic Advising Link will be closing for the semester at 8:00pm on Wednesday, April 30.  Stop by before then to meet with our peers to review your schedule, check your ARR, get information about majors and so much more.
