Meet the Admission Directors of the Five Colleges

High School Counselors: Meet Us on May 28, 2014 in Westchester or Manhattan

The admissions deans of the campuses of the Five College consortium—Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and Smith colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst—invite high school counselors from the greater Westchester and metro New York areas to join us for breakfast in Westchester or lunch in Manhattan. In addition to a fine meal—our treat—we will share with you the latest information about our campuses and the consortium itself, and we will be available to answer your questions.

For more information on either of these events, please visit the appropriate registration page:

Breakfast in Westchester      Lunch in Manhattan


Located in western Massachusetts, Five Colleges' member campuses are made up of a national research university and four of the most innovative and respected liberal arts colleges in the country:

Amherst College • Hampshire College • Mount Holyoke College • Smith College • UMass Amherst

On this website you will find examples of how the campuses of the Five College consortium share resources, such as by making their courses available to students from member campuses through the Five College Course Catalog. You will also find many examples of the campuses combining resources to accomplish as a group what none could do individually, such as Five College majors, departments and programs.

For answers to common questions about applying to one of the Five College campuses, view them on the Five College FAQ page.
