5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I prefer to go to my schools health services than my personal doctor back home!

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: My campus isn't too strict at all. I truly feel like it could be an iota stricter. For example, anyone can enter the university campus without a guest or without showing identification. This campus is very open to danger and anyone can come roaming in

4 College Junior

Computers: My university just rebuilt our campus library which holds majority of the computers available to students. There are a plethora of computers, some are touch screen, and usually one is always available. We do have others computer labs scattered across the campus

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are always looking out for the best interest of their students.

Local Atmosphere: Route 6 is right down the road and has plenty of things to do. Providence is only 30 minutes away so people go there often too.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Depends on the night but it's always fun when you are with friends.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I play basketball and softball here so athletics is a huge part of my college experience and I have been extremely happy with them so far.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The Department of Public Safety are always around to make sure everyone is being safe.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The Dart vans are always running and are very easily accessible.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being in the honors program here, I am able to live in an apartment as a sophomore and it is awesome. I am very close to classes and the gym.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Plenty of computers with touch screen option as well.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I love UMass Dartmouth! The people are very down-to-earth and the faculty are helpful. There are a lot of cool places to study. There is always at least one place open to eat (though more on-campus dining options would be nice). The art program is especially great!

Weather: Mostly, it is typical New England weather! There can be a lot of rain at times, but in my experience so far, the weather has been fairly nice. It can be very cold in the winter months, but not unbearable (especially if you are from Massachusetts).

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are many computers available to students in the library; however, it can be hard to find a free computer during the day. Having your own laptop is much more convenient. The reliability of the campus internet is not top-notch, but it works for the most part. Wifi is available on the main campus quad, but it is spotty in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are many transportation stops and locations, but it is never on schedule. I have had to wait more than 40 minutes for a shuttle to pick me up from off-campus locations. Transportation within the campus is much more prompt; however, most of the time it is unnecessary. (It can be helpful on cold nights or in bad weather.)

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking alone on campus during the day; however, I only feel comfortable walking with a group at night. I have not yet tried the escort service, but I am aware that there is one available on campus. The health services are high quality, though it is located semi-inconveniently, as it is not very close to the academic buildings, where I often spend most of my day. It is open during the day. I would feel better if it were open 24-hours, but I know that is unusual and costly.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity on campus is probably a bit better than average. There is more diversity here, at least, than there was in the small town I come from, in terms of ethnicity. In other areas, such as economic status and religious background, there is less diversity. For a public school, the diversity is standard.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The administration and the campus police are average in terms of strictness. In most situations, the rules are set for our safety, and they are strict when the safety risk is greater. Administrators and officers are easy to get along with, as long as you respect them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options for off-campus dining. There are a few chain options, some smaller restaurants, and cafes, as well. We have a Friday's very close to campus, a Not-Your-Average-Joe's, and a Dunkin Donuts.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are many dining and shopping options very close to campus. The university transportation to off-campus locations is fairly unreliable, in terms of being on time, but despite this I go off-campus at least once every week or two to shop or to go out with friends (to the movies, for instance).

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining at UMass Dartmouth is standard. The variety of options at the main dining hall is fairly wide, with some options that are offered every day, others that change daily. Food carts are available during the busiest hours of the day in each academic building. After or before those hours, there are fewer dining options. There is the main dining hall, a smaller food court (which includes a Wendy's, which is open a lot of the time), and two grills that are open mainly at night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel that I made the best decision in going to UMass Dartmouth. I have had a great experience here. All the people I've met, whether they are other students, professors, or other faculty, have been very down-to-earth, and most are easy to get along with. The faculty is very welcoming! The campus itself is very open and can be very beautiful. Many people who visit view the architecture as boring, but I see it as unique and artistic. Some of my favorite places on campus are the Birch Grille, the sand volleyball court in the freshman quad, the quiet fifth floor of the library, and the Visual and Performing Arts building. While the campus as a whole does not always feel like a close-knit community, there are many opportunities to become part of a community within the campus. For instance, I am a part of the art program, which is a very tight-knit group (especially among the honors art students).

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process at UMass Dartmouth is standard, based on what I've heard from students at other schools. The financial aid office is always busy, so being prompt about getting any forms passed in or with any questions you have is key. (Always fill out the FAFSA as soon as possible at the very start of the calendar year.) Be sure to read all the emails you receive from the bursars office or from financial aid themselves. If possible, physically go to the office to get questions answered or to pass in forms, so you can be sure they receive your paperwork.
