3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I only stayed at Curry for one semester, and it's not hard to pinpoint why. Everything about the school is just eh. And for the amount of money people pay to go there it should be above and beyond expectations. I would say the best things about the school are the people (made lots of friends in my short time there) and the appearance (it really is a beautiful campus-especially in the fall). One of the worst things about the school would be that EVERYONE goes home on the weekends. I though people were exaggerating when they said it was "Camp Curry" but it really is-if you don't live close you will get very bored on the weekends because the campus is quite literally empty. Another particularly bad thing about the school is that for a college with such a small student population the campus is very spread out. This includes LOTS of hills. This can be particularly unnerving in the winter when there is snow and ice on the ground. Other than these things, everything else is just okay.

Overall Experience: Curry provides good opportunities for the students-especially the nursing students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Curry's new dorms (NCRH specifically) are very nice. Key card access and air conditioning. Very spacious and good sense of community. However the older dorms (I lived in Lombard specifically) are not so great. Paper-thin walls so you can hear EVERYTHING happening next door. Bathrooms aren't bad, I believe we had 22 girls on my floor and the bathroom had 3 showers, toliets, and sinks, and I don't recall having to wait for a shower very often (maybe once or twice in a whole semester). There are quiet hours but these are not enforced very much which can be frustrating. Laundry is in the basement which can be awful (especially if you live on the 3rd floor like I did) and there are lots of stairs. However, laundry is free which is a nice bonus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I suppose the dining at Curry is pretty average. The food supplier is Sodexo which does a majority of colleges. A pretty good amount of options, but I did find myself eating the same things over and over again. The theme nights are fun, like Halloween and Christmas, with lots of decorations and desserts. The late night dining is pretty unfortunate. Very expensive and not that great.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: For the most part not bad. Most RA's will turn a blind eye to the underage drinking in the dorms. Public Safety can be a real bummer sometimes.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: LOTS of stuck-up girls, especially in the nursing program. The nice girls are very nice though, and make good friends. The boys are good for the most part, however some of them get creepy when alcohol is involved. Some athletes are also very cocky.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Good diversity among race-I'd say it's pretty much split 50/50 in the black/white area. Couldn't really speak about sexual orientation or religion because I didn't really come across that during my time at the school.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Curry College spent a lot of money on their new student center and it shows-this is the nicest thing about the campus. The gym and dance studio are beautiful-the dining hall is also nice but a little on the small side. The bookstore and mail area are also quite upscale. The library could be (and should be) greatly improved-it's small (can be hard to find seats at peak times) and the hours are ridiculous (not open on Sundays, closes early most nights-even during finals) and you can tell it's old. The nice thing about Curry is that it provides multiple "Cafe" locations where students can use their colonel cash to get coffee and snacks when they're not near the Student Center.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places that will deliver into the late night (dominos & Chinese food) which is nice for late night studying, but there isn't much variety.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Curry does their best to make the students feel safe, but they don't always succeed. For example, they provide shuttles and transportation to students who don't feel comfortable walking around campus at night, yet the only transportation they have to a T station is to the most dangerous station (Mattapan). They are also a little overzealous with transporting students to the hospital when found with alcohol, but I suppose such is common at any college.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Curry does not have greek life

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Curry is in an odd location, surrounded by a beautiful small town on one side, and an incredibly dangerous one on the other. Basically, when its good, its good, but when its bad-it's really bad.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Curry has a decent amount of school spirit, and the sporting events are pretty highly attended.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Curry did not go out of their way to provide students with scholarship information

College Sophomore

Athletics: i dont follow the sports

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You can really get away with anything here if you're smart about it.

2 College Freshman

Academics: The only decent major that Curry is known for is their Nursing Program. Other than that all the teachers teach us like we are in middle school and the some of the students don't seem as though they would be able to sit through a normal college level class anyways. The acceptance rate is WAY too high for this school.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The school claims they make it very easy to get around and get into Boston, but really they don't have many shuttles running into Boston and they only take you to the T stations at weird and random times. They take you to the Mattapan T-station which is the scariest city surrounding Boston in my parents opinion. My friends and I are not allowed to go there.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nothing is ever going on on campus. Unless you live on south side with the upperclassmen there is nothing ever to do and no parties ever. Sometimes there are random dances put on but no one really goes and they don't play good music. They are just like high school dances all over again.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Curry is good at giving out scholarships and making the school affordable, or more affordable than most schools.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public Safety is always around but when walking alone on campus at night it's kind of scary.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports is a big part of why most people come to Curry. Other than sports and the Nursing program I don't see why anyone would ever come here. Very boring and bland campus. Beautiful but everyone complains all the time and goes home on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Typical New England weather: rainy, snowy, but then sometimes beautiful.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a lot cheaper to live off campus but you would be living in some scary areas that your parents may not allow you to live in. The school does not help at all to help find housing so you are on your own.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Almost every guy here smokes weed.
