Students and members of the UMass community marched from the Fine Arts Center to the Student Union on April 16, 2014 in support of Derrick Gordon and the LGBTQ community. The rally was in response to the Westboro Baptist Church coming to UMass to picket the University’s support of Gordon after he came out as the first openly gay Division 1 men’s basketball player last week. 
Five members of the Westboro Baptist Church stood on Massachusetts Avenue holding anti-gay signs and playing music. Police officers prevented anybody from getting close to the protestors, but a group of around 100 gathered across the street, many yelling obscenities. The Westboro Baptist Church left after less than an hour.

Hi! I recently got my AP scores, and when I took the tests i had them send them to umass as my free score report, but I can't seem to view them on spire? Is there a way I can view my scores that were sent in, and how do i apply them to my gen ed requirements? Thanks!

umassinfo:

I would wait a couple weeks for them to process and show up on SPIRE! If you know your scores, you can look up our AP Credit sheet here to see what Gen Eds you’ve completed.

FYI - *most* GenEds require a 4 or 5 in order to opt out

UMass among country’s most expensive public universities

westernmanews:

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – A new list from the Department of Education reveals that UMass Amherst is one of the most expensive public universities in the country.

The college affordability study found that UMass students pay a net price of $18,156 a year. “Net price” measures how much an average undergraduate student pays after subtracting his or her scholarship and financial aid money.

The national average net price for a 4-year public school was $11,582.

Some parents are concerned there’s not enough financial help for families.

Deborah Colon of Springfield told 22News, “They’ll think twice to do it or not, or just go to a community college because it’s so expensive. And then, they’ll be in college studying but thinking oh my gosh, I need to pay all the loans.”

Miami University Oxford topped the list with $24,674 a year.

I'm going to be a sophomore transferring into UMass this Fall and am really worried about my housing arrangements. I'm a Sport Management major and apparently all transfers get thrown into Sylvan, which has a reputation of being quiet and dull. I'm really antisocial in a way and thought UMass would really help that, but not if I'm in a dorm that's notoriously quiet. Is there any way to avoid Sylvan?

umassinfo:

You have the option of living in Sylvan as a transfer, as that’s where the transfer housing community is located, but you can live wherever! You’ll go over it more at your orientation.

Though because of the housing shortage, most transfers do end up in Sylvan because it’s one of the less requested areas. There is room swap though, so if you’re placed in Sylvan you still have an opportunity to move to a different building.
