Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

^^ My extra curriculars were three part time jobs to help pay for college. I didn't get a free ride. Now you just sound like a bitter old man talking about tough you had it and no one that comes after you should have it any easier. Someone is willing to pay kids money, in some cases life-altering m...

Re: Moving to the Pioneer Valley?

There's a Tree House in South Deerfield as well. Little Feat are playing there on 8/20.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

There was a time when those “thousands of hours of free labor” were considered extra-curricular activities.

At what point will high schooll players want to get paid too?
