For Generative Writing number 20 we had to write about the story of why we chose to attend UMASS Amherst. After applying to fourteen schools and doing too many tours to count I finally decided UMASS was the one. Having older cousins who attend UMASS made it very convenient for me to come up and visit and get the full college experience at the zoo. When touring schools you will either really click with the school or not click at all. When I visited here it clicked I absolutely loved everything about the school. I wanted a very big school that was far enough away from home with good academics, a good business school, and somewhere that would also be really fun, UMASS was the perfect match for me. This past year has been everything I could ever hoped for and I am so happy that I decided to go here.
