Donkeys have been called the world¹s most important work animals, but it¹s unusual for pre-veterinary students to get hands-on experience with them. The UMass Amherst International Donkey Project is one of the only programs in the nation where undergraduate veterinary and animal science students can learn about donkey health and care, and conduct original reproductive research in a modern clinical facility. Students started the UMass Donkey Club to spend more time with donkeys and enhance thei
Fraternities and sororities is a chapter from a film entitled "Memories of Alfred," which is a compilation of 16mm and 35mm amateur movies taken from the early 1930s through the late 1950s by cinematographers, W. Varick Nevins III '32 and Huber S. Watson '41. They have provided us with a comprehensive and enduring record of student life in Alfred during a very special time. Keep checking back on YouTube as new chapters will be posted soon.

Most archaeological evidence of early human occupation of the Americas is found in the interior of the continent. However, in recent years archaeologists have been exploring the hypothesis that the first American settlers who entered via the Bering land bridge in Alaska hugged the west coast on their migration to South America. Two coastal dig sites have recently yielded artifacts that resemble those of East Asia. Whether these sites are remains of a coastal migration from East Asia to South Ame

Draw a model that demonstrates basic geometric relationships such as parallelism, perpendicularity, similarity/proportionality, and congruence.
This lesson introduces students to the idea of biomimicry or looking to nature for engineering ideas. Biomimicry involves solving human problems by mimicking natural solutions, and it works well because the solutions exist naturally. There are numerous examples of useful applications of biomimicry, and in this lesson we look at a few fun examples.
