"The field hockey team has been blessed with an outstanding support-base of generous donors and alumnae, and loving friends and family. Without you, our experience and success would not be at the level that it is today. I am beyond grateful to be a UMass student athlete as it has shown me what teamwork, resilience, and accountability truly are. You have made this all possible. Thank you, and Roll UMass!!!"

As a member of the hockey team we have experienced the impact of upgraded facilities and know how crucial they can be to success on a national level. Thank you to all of the donors and future donors who help make our experience so exceptional. Your generosity does not go unnoticed. Go Minutemen!"
"UMass Athletics has had such a significant impact on me, not only as a player, but as a person these last three years. I've been given so many opportunities both on and off the court that has allowed me to grow in every aspect of my life. Our program has also grown so much since my freshmen year and that can definitely be attributed to the amazing support we've received from our families, friends, alumni, and fans over the years. It's truly been a journey, but their support has greatly assisted in us changing this program around for the better and I know both myself and my teammates are so grateful for everyone's support."
"Being a student-athlete at UMass has been a remarkable experience. As a member of the basketball team, I've not only experienced the support and generosity shown by the student population but also by The Minutemen Club and its donors. Their donations have allowed us to get the best equipment and to have the best facilities, which has made my experience even better. I truly appreciate the support and GO UMass!"
Women's Track & Field
"I came to UMass because the school has great academics and athletics. It's very hard to find a good balance between the two, but I found it here and I'm extremely happy I picked this school."
Men's Cross Country
"Not only has being a UMass student-athlete help me develop important skills, but it has provided a community to support one another. A community like this would not be possible without the donors and alumni that support our team and help provide us with equipment and expenses. Being on the Cross Country team is truly an amazing experience and I am proud to be a minuteman."
