Things I Learned at Umass Amherst::

* Liquor before beer, all clear
* Schedule all your classes between Tuesday and Thursday
* If the class has over 50 people, you only need to attend it a couple times per semester.
* First snowfall = riot
* Classes are never cancelled due to weather
* Try to ace at least one class per semester so your social calendar can be full and uninterrupted.
* That amassing $500-worth of parking tickets could endanger your graduation
* Pufton Village is within stumble distance of campus.
* Orchard Hill, naked, mud bowl
* Rudy was never shown on the college movie channel due to an epic tower war.
* If you live in a tower, you'll get at least 1 fire alarm at 3AM per semester.
* If Umass makes it to the final game for any sport, there will be riots win or lose (watch out for airborne lounge furniture).
* Try to enroll in classes that do not have final exams - hello going home early.
* Southwest lawn in Sept/May lots of eye candy tanning.
* Seven-O's makes a strong drink
* Thank God for the PVTA
* If you are a Liberal Arts major, you will be assigned Machiavelli's The Prince at least 3 times.
* There is a underground tunnel between Herter and Hicks
* Building names make good puns. Whitmore = Whitless. Herter, I barely knew her!
* The best dining commons is Franklin
* Dubois Library has a fence around it because engineers didn't take into account the weight of books so bricks fall off the building.
* There will always be construction on campus.

Hi Anna! Just stumbled across your blog via Facebook. One thing has changed at UMass since we were there. The best dining hall by far is, hands, down, Hampshire. They have a stir fry bar, pizza that rivals Antonio's, and flat screen TVs on the walls. Crazy.
