College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't know about the party scene because I don't go to parties and I have never been to a club. Partying just isn't my thing, I don't see the appeal to it like other people do. I'm sure it helps some students relax and unwind after a hard week of testing and work.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I personally believe that people are very accepting about the diversity not just at my school but all around the city. Pretty much every friend I have comes from a different part of the world, has a different culture than my own and has different religious beliefs. we all respect each other and actually want to learn about each others culture.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am a commuting student and I live at home with my mom and brothers. I don't know anything about the off-campus housing at my school because I haven't needed to know. I know the school does help you find off-campus housing if you need it though.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The best advice I have is complete FASFA as early as you possibly can. Make sure you have your parents have their tax information done and make sure you have your own. It is a long stressful process that makes you feel like someone is stomping on your chest especially if you worry the way I do. Just make a financial planner for yourself and find something else to occupy your mind for a while. Apply to as many scholarships as you can as well, just take some time out of every day to do so because free money is much better then loans that have to be paid back with interest.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You can't get in anywhere without your ID so I don't have to worry about people coming into the school who are not students. There is plenty of campus security which makes me feel very safe walking around the area and I always see police cars that drive by on patrols. The area is a very busy place so I know that if there is any sort of problem when is comes to safety or security that I should be alright.

Overall Experience: So far picking my classes has been great and there are a ton of different time slots available which makes it much easier on commuting students. The class sizes depending on the time slot and professor you choose.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are always new reports on the college home page about internships and job prospects. They do everything they can for us students and the rest is up to us to actually use the tools they give us.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I just transferred to my college but so far it has been great there. My brother attends Suffolk so that is how I knew that I wouldn't have trouble with work load or classes because I have heard that the professors are amazing and do whatever they can to help their students. The people who work there aren't just there for a pay check, they take their jobs seriously and really do care about the people attending the school. I am a Global business major and traveling abroad and learning a language are a requirement which I am so excited for. I have always wanted to learn a language but I feel like the actual need to will make me buckle down and focus more on doing so. My major is an open major so I can add a dual major like finance or accounting to go along with it which is great because I'd be going in for one major but coming out with two. I am really excited about starting college in the fall.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: From what I heard from my brother the professors at the school are great and really do care about how their students do. They are flexible when it comes to problems in your life and are extremely understanding. The registration process for myself so far has been very easy. Everyone has been very generous with their time to help me. I am generally a person who spends most of her time in a library, I have been ever since high school. There is the schools library where you can study in, there is the Boston public library which is beautiful at Copley which you can either take the train or walk to, there are a ton of coffee shops that you can use as a study area and my personal favorite is Boston common which is absolutely gorgeous during the early Fall and Spring where you can just sit under a tree with a book and get lost in your work.

Local Atmosphere: The area in Boston that surrounds my school is very lively and family oriented. There are so many things I see that go on around the area every day that I would never see in my own town. There are antique shops and flower shops and before I started college I had believed that those things only existed in movies or in some other distant universe. I love Boston common which is right near my school. It is very family oriented so I can bring my little brother around the area to play soccer or just to have a picnic in the nice weather. There are always activities going on so there is no such thing as boredom or just trying to look for something to do. There are also a lot of great places that college students can apply to jobs at especially if they're looking for a little extra cash for a fun night out. There are plenty of places a to go shopping at; you just have to be careful not to break your wallet. There is New bury street, Prudential mall, the Cambridge Galleria, or even some stores like Macy's in China town. You can get anywhere by walking, taking the bus, or even more convenient is taking the train; it can bring you anywhere. The area around my school is just a very beautiful place; there are tons of building all around that look so classy that its like you're in one of those old movies when you walk by them. Even if people aren't working or going to school in the area they should definitely come check it out, they won't regret it.

College Senior

Nightlife: I don't usually go out to parties or to bars.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It's worrisome if you don't get the financial aid in time or if you don't get enough. Some tips would be is send in the paperwork in time and always make copies.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I'm not one to usually eat the school cafe, so I eat at other restaurants and they're usually good.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't go to parties.

Off-Campus Housing: I commute from home so I am not entirely sure of the off campus housing selection at my school however I hear from classmates that they are very helpful

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I do not know that we have that large of a greek community at my school.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I am not a student that frequently goes to parties, however my school does put on many homecoming events and things of that nature for students to take part in.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is definitely one topic students need to stay on top of. Deadlines are critical to keep track of because if one misses a deadline it becomes very difficult to obtain the financial aid needed. However the application process is simple and there are many employees in the financial aid department at the school itself that are very helpful when anyone needs questions answered.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: My campus has a very diverse group of students. There are so many different looks, interests, dress, etc however everyone seems to get along quite well and builds many relationships with one another.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: My university has its very own police department that is constantly on call and handling all campus crime. They even will walk anyone to their class or dorm if they feel unsafe in walking alone. They constantly keep us updated with any and all notifications about the safety of our campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far in my studies I have had a great experience with the courses I have taken and the professors I have taken them with. Class styles are different depending on the teachers but so far have all proved to be equally enjoyable. The class sizes tend to run small at Suffolk which helps when building professor/student relationships.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many job/internship options to be able to choose from. Being a campus in the city of Boston helps because there is a large number of employers recruiting on campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Spending time on campus is great, there are constantly activities going on for students to take part in.

Suffolk tries to provide many opportunities so the student body can make the most of their college experience. There is a personal relationship with the school and some of the staff and faculty; however, the main goal of everyone within the institution is to prepare the students for the real world, just like any other college. The personal interest is not always evident, but it's there, especially through most of the professors on campus. Many of Suffolk's programs that students have to apply for—Alternative Spring Break and some programs established in certain majors—make it very much like the real world.

Regardless of how the University handles these programs, it's really up to each student to create his or her own college experience; the more a student hangs around the school and takes advantage of what the school offers, the more he or she will probably get out of college. It doesn't matter where one goes, what makes college worthwhile is what an individual does with the experience and the degree achieved afterward.
