The Five College Consortium in Western Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley provides students in the member institutions with a wealth of academic opportunities. Students can take classes on any of the five campuses allowing for the type of breadth and interdisciplinary study that wouldn't be possible at a single college. Combined, the five colleges offer roughly 6,000 courses to nearly 40,000 undergraduates. A free bus connects all the campuses. Students can also take advantage of cultural and co-curricular opportunities on the member campuses.

The consortium can be ideal for students who want a liberal arts or women's college experience, but worry about the limited opportunities (both social and academic) inherent to small schools. For students who attend UMass Amherst, the consortium allows them to experience the more intimate academic environment of a small college while attending a bustling university of nearly 30,000 students.
