Angela Ortiz Chosen for Special Program at Amherst College
Miami, August 28, 2014 -
Angela Ortiz, a senior at School for Advanced Studies, has been chosen as one of only 100 students from around the United States to participate in a weekend immersion program at Amherst College (October 18-20). The Diversity Open Houses are available to all prospective students, but the selection committee prioritizes the invitation of high achieving students from traditionally under-represented groups, such as African-American, Hispanic/Latino American, Native American, and Asian-American backgrounds, as well as first-generation students.
Students selected to visit Amherst for this special weekend will receive 100% of round-trip transportation costs (airline) and will be hosted on campus by current students. Special programming for this weekend visit includes information sessions with our admission deans, a faculty panel, and opportunities to attend classes and spend time with current Amherst College students, faculty and staff.
