The place to buy Amherst gear + what's with the mascot controversy? | Campus Tour 2019
This Amherst College Campus Tour was taken at A J Hastings Inc.
Amherst recently changed its mascot from the "Lord Jeffs" to the "Mammoths". Lord Jeff was a controversial historical figure who had initiated biological warfare on local Native Americans but who nonetheless remained dear to several alumni for his contributions to the town and college. You can buy new Amherst mammoths gear at AJ Hastings, a gift shop in town.
