Incredible job with that portfolio, Poolio. Just magnificent. Thank you!!!!.......The Haigis Mall, showcasing some of the egregious brutalist architecture that UMass is generally know for. If this is what you think of when you think of UMass I hope the rest of the photos here can help change your impression a little bit.
Wouldn't be the same if there wasn't some anachronistic brutalism left to give the students a backdrop to flash-riot on the quad on a random spring Tuesday afternoon. Tradition and all. . .Wow, a lot has changed since I was there 30 years ago. I had occasion to drive through campus last year for the first time in at least a decade, and was quite impressed at all the new pretty buildings. Glad to see Thompson still looks like a public trash receptacle, though.
I was there at the same time, although I may have done a couple extra years.Nice to see some UMass pics! CommCol looks totally different from when I was there 2006-2010! Overall they had just finished North Apts when I started, and the rec center and ISB were done by my Sophomore year. There's been a lot of change!
They stuck us first and second year CommCol kids in Orchard Hill in 2000-2001. That's when the Rape Trail wasn't lit or widely-paved. It looks like such a nicer experience now.Nice to see some UMass pics! CommCol looks totally different from when I was there 2006-2010!

Back to Amherst for another visit on Saturday. Beautiful day.
