In the past, the College has not had a reputation for expertise in business. Sophomore and AAS (Association of Amherst Students) Senator Jacob Ong hopes to change that.

“Amherst College doesn’t have a tradition of having an enterprise competition, because in the earlier years they believed that maybe enterprise [or]business, didn’t really fit in line with the liberal arts education. [It was] something you’d do after you graduated, not during your time here,” Ong said.
