“Beautiful Campus, Lovely Town”
Review of Amherst College

Amherst College
Reviewed May 1, 2012

My sister went to school here, and my uncle used to live in Amherst... and touring the Amherst College campus is a worthwhile thing to do while in town! The museum wonderful, and there are many excellent places to eat all within a short walking distance! Enjoy the view East and Southeast... the Holyoke Mtns near by make for a nice (short) fairly easily hike with some beautiful views! Enjoy the town~

Amherst College is THE New England College campus that you'd expect to see in a movie. It's a large campus for a small, New England liberal arts school. And it's set high above the Pioneer Valley with some really beautiful views. They have a planetarium that is open to the public many Saturdays through a local astronomy group. The Museum of Natural Science is new and beautiful and a great place to take kids. They offer great music events throughout the year. The campus is a beautiful place to take a walk.

I have visited many colleges. I enjoyed this tour and thought that the student leading the tour was one of the best that I have encountered. The tour took about an hour and was worth the time.
