4 College Freshman

Party Scene: At bentley, there are parties on campus and frats on fridays and saturdays. It's quite on any other night of the week.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: From bentley you can take a shuttle that will take you to Cambridge, Harvard Square. In Harvard Square I believe that there are multiple options as to places to go dinning and are conveniently close.

4 College Freshman

Administration: As any other college, bentley university has rules that most be followed for everyone's safety.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Aside from seasons, the other options have, relatively, good options.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really like living on campus for the simple fact that you can live with/near your friends! It's also a great place to meet new people of your same class and it's not in a bad location either to everything else on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you can afford living off campus somewhere nice, it's great. Otherwise you can try to rent a house with friends; might be about the same price as living on campus actually.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can go to frat parties if you want, but lots of people have room-held parties you can go to. Some start Thursday nights, but most on Friday and Saturday nights. Campus is quiet at night Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday nights most of the time.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options in Harvard Square and Boston.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Just don't party in freshman dorms, you get caught the most here since RA's do the most rounds

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got so much financial aid from Bentley; one of the reasons why I enrolled here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are other options besides our only dining hall, Seasons. But Seasons isn't to the point where everything is inedible, people just like to complain. I heard it's actually gotten much better over the past few years so hopefully it continues to improve. The thing that's just really lacking at Seasons is the variety.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are 3 freshman dorms. Trees is the oldest, then I believe Miller and Slade. Miller and Slade is obviously in better condition and thankfully I was placed in Slade. I didn't mind living in a dorm that was generally more quiet, even though there was a greater percentage of freshman that lived in Trees.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid office is too busy always

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is based on academic credits, so those who came in with lots of credits get first pick every year. High school credits should not effect senior year housing.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food in Boston and off campus is great but Bentley is cheap about the food

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its alright. The freshman housing is awful. It slowly gets better but the school doesn't dedicate much money to housing

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus now and it is great!

4 College Senior

Administration: They are strict but understand it is college.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Seasons is not good but we have other options.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It has been an awesome experience.

4 College Senior

Administration: There is no visitors policy at all, so anyone can stay on any night and for as long as they want (as long as your roommate(s) are okay with it!) Honestly you have to be way more worried about RAs than campus policy. I couldn't tell you the last time I saw a CP, other than hunting for cars to give parking tickets to.

1 College Senior

Campus Food: The food is inedible. Seasons is basically one huge health violation. My friend once found a dead bug and a ball of hair in her salad. I once got a stomach bug from the dining hall and I never went back after that. La Cava food is decent, but INCREDIBLY OVERPRICED. Einstein's is great, but you can only eat so many bagels before you get sick of them too.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Freshman year I lived in the Trees dorm, as the majority of freshman do at Bentley. Trees is known for its distinct but mysterious smell, so the building itself isn't great. However, I loved the social aspect of being able to walk to my friends' rooms without having to leave the building. It was close enough to classes (despite Bentley's crazy amount of stairs) to where getting to class on time was never an issue. I have lived on North Campus sophomore - senior year and I love it. North Campus often gets a bad reputation since it is disconnected from the rest of campus, and therefore often disconnected to the social atmosphere of Bentley. However, it is quiet housing and the buildings are top notch. The apartments are clean, up to date, and overall awesome.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are few options to choose from unless you want to live in a frat house, but most people live on campus all four years so it's not a big deal.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Bentley experience is hardly a normal college experience, and the majority of students here would choose Bentley again in a heartbeat. From day one, you are set on a track to receive a unique business education. Hard work and effort are mandatory, but the rewards are endless. The combination of intense business and fun liberal arts courses creates well-rounded students that employers love to sign on. Students who are unhappy with their Bentley experience are usually those who find the school to be more business-focused than they had expected. But those who become immersed in the atmosphere always find it to be exciting, strenuous, and worth while.

Bentley students have the opportunity to interact with professors who are leaders in the field, learn from renowned companies in the classroom, and have access to the latest technology. This creates a distinctive class of business schools in which Bentley is quickly becoming a leader. From the relatively diverse campus to the professor-student relationships and general campus life, the University is so much more than "just a business school." If you want to have a college experience that you can reflect back on and say you received an excellent real-world business education, were exposed to state-of-the-art technology, and had a good time while doing it, then Bentley is for you.
