Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Umass Amherst has a been getting a stronger reputation and is not only known as a "party school" anymore. Getting accepted has become more challenging, and require certain demands from its students. A degree from this school would be very valuable.
Living on campus is great, you get to meet new people and make a bunch of friends. The best dorms to live in my opinion is South West because I find it to be the most lively and bustling with people. As well as it has the best dining halls in that area. The worst housing is Sylvan because the building is known to be the worst and it's far away from everything.

Advice for students:
Greek life isn't seen as that big of a deal and no one judges if you're in one or not. It's just a fun thing to do if you're interested. I personally am not part of Greek life but I hope to be! Greek students are sometimes viewed as shallow for the sororities or jerks for the fraternities.
