Last week, the Amherst Asian American Studies Working Group (AASWG) released a Facebook photograph campaign titled “Amherst Doesn’t Teach Me” to advocate for the incorporation of more Asian-American studies courses into the college’s curriculum. The post, published on April 4, consists of 35 portraits of Amherst students holding written responses to the questions: “What about Asian-American history and identity are you not being taught at Amherst?” and “Why does Asian-American Studies matter to you?”

The Amherst women’s lacrosse team had another successful week, coming away with two conference wins to improve to an overall record of 9-1. After topping Wesleyan on Wednesday, the Mammoths overcame Williams on Saturday to clinch the 2018 Little III title.

It was Little III week in the world of NESCAC lacrosse — both the men’s and women’s teams took on contests against Wesleyan and Williams. On the men’s side, Amherst fell to the Wesleyan Cardinals by just one goal in a heated Wednesday matchup in Middletown, Connecticut.

In the contest between the No. 4 Cardinals and No. 7 Mammoths, neither team took a dominant lead at any point in the 60 minutes.

This past Sunday, amidst the stress of midterms, the East and West First-Year Area Councils organized their latest event to bring first year students together for a creative study break. Around noon, students lumbered through chilly weather from all corners of the first-year quad to gather in O’Connor Commons for a guided painting session, complete with delicious snacks and bubble tea.

The Amherst women’s tennis team travelled to Maine this weekend for three matches and returned home with wins in both of its NESCAC games, beating Bates on Saturday and Bowdoin on Sunday.

Entering the match as favorites, the No. 8 Mammoths took on No. 28 Bates on Saturday afternoon in Lewiston, Maine.

All three Amherst doubles pairings cruised to comfortable victories to give the Mammoths an ideal start. The tandem of senior Avery Wagman and sophomore Anya Invenitsky downed Maisie Silverman and Bella Stone 8-2 on the first doubles court.

Last weekend, a group of students — with the support of The Green Room — performed “Lizzie: The Musical.” A rock-musical interpretation of a famous story from the Massachusetts area, “Lizzie: The Musical” is about a woman who was accused of killing her father and his wife with an axe but was found not guilty of the crime at trial.
