Transitioning to College

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

By Tanvi Shrimal ( Class of 2013)

I feel that College is a big step towards the future so try and follow your heart, and go where you want to go, because you won’t work hard enough to fit in until you love where you are.

UMass Amherst is definitely one of the greatest schools if you love diversity, a large college and a large number of subjects to choose from. I am an Economics Major, yet this semester I am taking Physics, Biology and Communications! It’s great to try out new subjects as you never know which one you might like more, and would want to probably minor in it too.

The campus at UMass is the best ever. I love living on campus, it is spread over 1463 acres with magnificent buildings, dorms, and the world’s most beautiful sunrise and sunset. I live in a dorm with 22 stories and 600 people living below and above me. UMass Amherst is rated #1 for its food in the whole of USA. There are 5 dining commons and I live right next to one of the most healthiest one, the cuisines served are Chinese, Street food, Indian, Sushi, sandwiches, Italian, different kinds of rice, soups, stir fry, desserts, cookies, ice-cream and so much more! Being a vegetarian I honestly never had any problems with food.

The classes range from 15 students to 1000 students. My Communications class has 1000 students, my English class has 15 students, my Math class had about 500 students and my Physics class can be taken online or you could go to class too. There is so much to do here that you can barely find any spare time and waste it. There are clubs, sports, games almost every night to watch and the best part is students get free entry. The gym is one of the best things I have seen, on the first floor there are classes that take place every day, the second level has weights and 4 indoor amazing basketball courts, on the third level there is a track of 400 meters, right above the basketball court and a hollow in between that enables you to see people playing while you are jogging and the third level also has treadmills, upright & recumbent bikes, Cybex arc trainers, Concept 2 rowers, Life Fitness summit trainer, Precor adaptive motion trainers, Technogym waves & upper body ergonometer, cardio theater and so much more.

UMass Amherst is part of a consortium of 5 different colleges, around Amherst. The other 4 colleges are Amherst College, Mt. Holyoke, Hampshire College, and Smith College, if you sign up you can take classes in any of the other colleges too. Student get a free ride to all the other 4 colleges by the PVTA busses and with an ID you can also get a free ride to malls and few other parts of town. The Isnberg School, which is the business school at UMass is highly respected and prestigious, only business students can take classes in Isnberg, which is a barrier for me, even though I am an Economics major I am not allowed to take business classes there.

It is tough to live in a completely new and different culture, you need to take care of yourself, clean your own room and most importantly get along with people. In a huge college like UMass in the first semester I was lost, if I saw at least one face every day and did not even know the person but would see them somewhere again it gave me some amount of satisfaction and happiness, but as the semester went by I made amazing friends and now I see them all around, they never let you feel lonely so don’t stay in, get out there talk to people get to know them and use all the resources that are available to you.
