Amherst College Responds To Terrorist Attacks

Members of the Amherst College community extend thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the recent terrorist attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. In particular, our thoughts are with those who lost loved ones in the attacks and with those who have friends and family still missing.
