Famous Alumni of Amherst College - Celebrities from Amherst College
The famous Amherst College, situated in the state of Massachusetts, is one of the best places to study liberal arts in the whole of United States. This college, which started way back in 1821, was a men’s only institution, but became co-educational quite recently, in 1975 to be precise. An online source says that more than 8000 students had applied for an admission in this notable institution, but just over a thousand students were finally accepted by the college. Such is the demand for an admission in this college. The American media company ‘U.S News & World Report’ had mentioned ‘Amherst College’ as the best institution in the United States on ten occasions. The college has also made waves over the years for its notable alumni, some of whom are famous worldwide for their outstanding accomplishments. The most notable of these was the legendary political leader Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States. His journey from being a small time politician to the first man of the United States is simply remarkable. A few other eminent personalities who were once students at Amherst College are acclaimed writer Dan Brown, former American politician Harlan F Stone, Monarch Albert II, the Prince of Monaco and actor Rob Brown. Dan Brown is considered a gem of modern literature and has penned several bestsellers such as ‘Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels & Demons’. Both these books were adapted for celluloid and went on to become blockbusters. We have enlisted a few notable alumni who have made Amherst College proud with their remarkable achievements.
