Amherst, Massachusetts 01002
United States
This is a campus activist.
I am a twenty four year old musician, writer, and recent graduate of UMass Amherst (2008). I play music in the local venues and want to be more active in the community. Education costs are increasingly rising at a rate nearly double that of regular inflation. The lower class is pretty much almost muscled out of higher education and the middle class is next. We need to make education available to everyone. First we need to take back UMass. In a state that values education so highly it is despicable for its biggest public University to have such an elitist outlook.
