Amherst College

    Meeting Amherst On the (Virtual) Road

    In a typical year, representatives of our Office of Admission travel across the country and around the world to visit high schools, attend college fairs, and host programs for prospective applicants to learn more about Amherst. Getting “on the road” to meet students personally is always a highlight of our year. Unfortunately, this is not a typical year.

    Although Covid-related restrictions prevent our traditional travel right now, we are not going to let that get in the way of connecting with you! In addition to our regular Amherst-based Virtual Campus Visits, we are planning a number of special virtual events to be held throughout the fall. Some of these will be virtual visits to individual high schools, some will be designed for students in particular geographic regions, and some will include joint presentations by admission officers from multiple liberal arts colleges.

    We invite you to register in advance using the online form associated with any of the events listed below. As new events are scheduled, we will post them on this web page, so check back frequently for updates.

    We look forward to meeting you….virtually!
