3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience. Even though you might not always get the accommodations you would like you still have a great time and meet a wide variety of people.

Campus Food: Its Horrible, I get Dominos more then eating at the stu.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its a small school so its like high school all over again.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It all depends on the type of person you are. If you like small social gatherings, then you'll be satisfied. If you want a larger, louder experience, this isn't the place for you. However, there are many opportunities with the shuttle to travel off campus into Boston, which always has something going on.

3 College Junior

Academics: Any of the classes that are supposed to go towards the CLAC (core) requirements are relatively easy to pass. When you get into classes that are specific to your major, however, classes tend to be more rigorous (in my experience). Specifically, the nursing and education majors have difficult schedules and a lot of coursework.

Regarding internship/job opportunities, the career development office is somewhat helpful in getting you started, but it will be up to you to find opportunities and apply. If you want an internship to count for credit, you need to take an Experiential Learning course at least one semester before it starts. Education majors are an exception, as they get automatically placed in field placements, which are similar to internships. Also, nursing majors get automatically placed in clinicals.

3 College Junior

Administration: As long as you're smart and are on good terms with public safety and others of administrative power, they won't question you as much as they would others (so you are able to get away with more). Some RAs tend to not care about noise levels until their RD speaks with them, or multiple students complain. If you are on bad terms with your RA though, they can get you in a lot of trouble.

Administration: Curry College does not try to help its students.

1 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Girls and boys are equally hideous. Girls are fat and stuck up even though they are -1 in the world of 9s and 10s. Boys have acne and think they are awesome because they all play football.

1 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There have been four sexual assaults within the past week. The admin's way of fixing the problem? Handing out whistles.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There is no greek life at Curry College. There used to be and now there is not. Do not try to start any chapters because the faculty and adminstration will shut you down immediately.

Local Area: Curry College is ten minutes from Mattapan, during orientation week of 2014 there were four shootings and murders in that town during the week. Students never get off the campus but those who know how to work the MBTA system will be able to get out of Mattapan quickly and find refuge in Boston or Harvard Square where the normal people are.

Campus Housing: I would not wish this college experience on my worst enemy. Curry College is the worst college to ever be in existance. Not only are the people that make up Curry awful, ignorant, and lazy but the teachers are awful as well. Curry College will not let you see your grades because they feel the need to put useless holds on student's records. Curry College will also not allow you to take any classes that you wish to take ahead (to get ahead in your major and possibly finish earlier than the other students) they want everyone to go the same pace. Curry College is not challenging at all and I am planning on transferring next semester. Curry College is a waste of money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I commute, but from my friend's dorms seem to be very dark and dreary. Lombard and State House seems to always have a weird smell, and the walls are very thin.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

Campus Food: 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

Administration: 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.
