What is Amherst? If an institution is a collection of individuals, then Amherst is defined by its people and their untold stories. Nexus illuminates the intersecting, human narratives underlying our campus.
Approximately 10 percent of Amherst’s student population comes from outside of the U.S., and beyond that, many faculty members and staff are from a completely different corner of the world. This diversity is one of the things that makes Amherst such an exciting place to learn, while simultaneously engendering divides within the student body.
Rebecca McGeehan ’26 kicks off the inaugural series of Nexus by highlighting the international student experience, beginning close to her own home of Northern Ireland.
