Over the weekend of March 24, the Amherst College Democrats arranged for students to attend the March For Our Lives in Washington D.C., joining middle school, high school and college students from around the country in demonstrations calling for gun reform.

After poring over a record-breaking 9,722 applications, the Office of Admissions admitted 1,244 applicants to the class of 2022, bringing the acceptance rate down to 12.8 percent, according to the Office of Admissions. Around 37 percent of the total number of accepted students were admitted through early decision.

Dean of Admissions Katie Fretwell expects a yield rate of 37 to 39 percent, which would make a class of 460 to 485 students. Admissions hopes to admit additional students off of the waitlist in late April and May in order to meet this target class size.

The Amherst College Police Department’s (ACPD) mission statement says that it “will strive to gain the trust of the community.” This is a noble goal. Currently, one way ACPD officers demonstrate this is by doing walkthroughs of student dormitories and engaging in casual conversation with students. While this might be partially effective, there is one thing that ACPD could do that would make it a lot more effective: laying down their firearms when they’re doing walkthroughs of student dormitories.
