Anonymous asked:do know if you have to buy/bring the dinnerware/silverware/cooking utensils if you live if a north apartment or are they provided? nothing so far says that they are provided, but I'd like to know if they are before I buy all that stuff.
Unless it’s changed, you have to provide your own
Anonymous asked: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!
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
Anonymous asked: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?
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.
