4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Depends on your department, but my experience was awesome!

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: There's not really many choices.

2 Recent Alumnus

Parking: The cost isn't too bad, but it's VERY difficult to find a spot. You pay $250 for a parking pass and you're not even guaranteed to find a spot. You're almost better off risking getting the ticket since they're only $15.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of great options!

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There are a lot of great teams and facilities! The athletic department is awesome.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: For the most part they're average on the strictness scale. Underage drinking is pretty lenient. Visitation can be a hassle with the sign in process and the parking people are very strict when it comes to writing tickets. However if you get a ticket and don't pay it nothing really happens.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off campus apartments, but they can be in some rough areas. You have to make sure you're choosing the right location and a good landlord.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: There are many shuttles that run throughout the day, but Lowell traffic can be terrible which will often slow up the commute. Always allow yourself plenty of time to make it to class.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Lowell is a diverse city as it is, so there are many different types of students that attend the school

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: The frats and sororities aren't school sanctioned. For the most part they're just seen as a way to go to a dirty frat house party.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: No one is ever trying to pressure anyone into doing drugs. Enforcement isn't really there unless someone is blatantly using or underage drinking in the dorms.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I didn't do an internship through my school because they were unpaid and I already had a full time job on top of going to school full time. From what I heard they were readily available and easy to find. However, from the people who did do them during the semester found them to be stressful because they were essentially working for free.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I loved the work in my major.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There's a lot of different people on campus to get to know.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: There are a lot of labs and available computers, however it's always good to have your own. Most of the time when you need to get on a computer to do work, there are people in the library there just to waste time between classes and check social media.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Most people go home on the weekends and the frats are gross. You're better off having a get together with friends.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It's New England and weather is bipolar.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My department was great! However, I hear that the business department isn't very good even though they're rated well.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: They give you what you need.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Some of the housing is lack luster, but the new dorms are great! You just have to have a good lottery number to get the environment you want.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Lowell is a tough city and a lot of crime happens near campus. As long as you're smart, you'll be fine. Campus police and EMT's do a great job at keeping the university safe.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The athletic facilities and the people who run the athletic department are great. UML has a lot of great teams that do well in conferences. The hockey team is what the school prides itself most on. Almost everyone attends the hockey games.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Underage drinking isn't allowed but if you get caught its not too big a deal you'll probably just get a written notice and be forced to dump out the alcohol in the sink. Its a big public university they expect it. Depending on your classes and if it has to do with your major directly you'll have mandatory attendance for the most part. If you miss a class emailing your Professor ahead of time should get you out of it but you might need a doctors note. Some classes don't care about attendance and that'll be up to the teacher for the most part. Campus and RA's are pretty chill

Transportation: Buses and shuttles from campus to campus to apartments are included in your fees and they're useful. You can also get to the train station and to Walmart by shuttle depending on the day. Train station will take you to Boston

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are a lot of labs around campus that are open early to when the building it subsides in closes. You also get some printing cash on your university card to print papers every year automatically so you don't necessarily need a printer unless you're in a rush or have early classes. Wireless speeds were terrible but the tech team is improving them (its a big university its expected.) And you should definitely have your own laptop despite the amount of comp. labs there are without a doubt.
