Science Center during Family Weekend
Every summer, dozens of Amherst College students engage in research in the physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. From laboratories to archives to the field, students can spend six or more weeks extending their classroom research, working on their senior theses or assisting in faculty experiments. The Summer Research Poster Session is an opportunity for student researchers to share works in progress, summer research stories, thesis ideas and experimental results.

Beneski Hall and Museum of Natural History
Home of Amherst basketball and volleyball, the space features unique architecture, a main competition court, and a secondary practice court. Opening its doors in 1976 and dubbed the New Gymnasium, a fire destroyed the original facility in 1985 before it was rebuilt with the generous support of Richard LeFrak ’67 and the Richard and Karen LeFrak Charitable Foundation. Renamed LeFrak Gym, the space still thrives today and has hosted countless athletic triumphs & indoor events.
A 25-yard, six-lane facility with a separate two-lane warm up area, Pratt Pool runs seven to 14 feet deep and features stadium seating along one side and a wall of windows on the other for spectators to enjoy the competition while in the Friends of Amherst room. The facility also includes a state-of-the-art Colorado Timing and video board system as well as a fitness, strength and stretching area above the pool deck.
