  • Pot-related poisoning calls involving kids and teens more than doubled in Massachusetts after the state legalized medical marijuana, a new study by UMass Amherst's Jennifer Whitehill reports, despite placing tough packaging requirements to make pot products less enticing and harder to open for kids.

  • #FlashbackFriday to Julius Erving in the 1971 yearbook, where the caption reads, "In only two varsity seasons, Julius Erving set new UMass career records in scoring 1370 points and rebounding with 1049. To say that the two most successful UMass basketball seasons ever were the sole result of Mr. Erving's performance would be an understatement."

  • Happy International Cat Day! Did you know that for many years, UMass Amherst was home to several colonies of feral cats that took up residence in its barns and outbuildings?

    An alumna and employee in Human Relations, Marie Phillips '78, '91 MPA was feral cat caretaker between 1991 and 2007, joined by her colleague Meg Caulmare of the English Department. Together, they supported the colonies along the "Cat Corridor," stretching from the rear of Munson Hall to the Queen Anne Horse Barn.

    With increasing construction on campus and careful rehoming, the feral cat population was gradually reduced on campus until 2014, when the last cats to live in the Horse Barn, Mr. Junie Moon and Rusty, were given a home. 🐱
