4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. As a tour guide, I have learned a lot about public safety so that I can tell parents as much as possible. I know that we have an on campus blue light system, which has only been used for testing purposes; our campus police have been trained to get to a blue light within 45 seconds. Also, the head of public safety lets us know about any off-campus crimes that occur and any developments in public safety. For people who don't feel safe walking around at night, there is an on-campus shuttle, PrideRide, that runs from 5pm to 12pm and has a route all around campus. We also use the RAVE Alert system, which is tested multiple times a semester and notifies us of any off campus crime. It can also be used to track your location: if you are leaving a building, you set a timer and turn the timer off when you get to your point B. If you don't turn the timer off then the app calls a person of your choice, and if they don't answer, then it calls the campus police to go to your point B and see if you are there and safe. Because of all of these measures, I feel very safe on campus.

Overall Experience: A degree from Springfield definitely carries value, since Springfield College is well known for healthcare education. A student with a RHDS degree can get a job in a hospital, a clinic, an assisted living facility; the college does well helping the student figure out what they want to do and where they want to work. The teachers and staff of the rehabilitation department have been very helpful to me in figuring out what I want to do for my practicum this summer. I feel confident that I will be able to find an internship and a job after college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Almost all of my classes here have been fulfilling and worthwhile. The classes that really haven't been fulfilling are the ones that are for general education requirements. The classes for my major are taught by professors who are passionate about what they are teaching and who want to help the students succeed. I know that for a few of the classes that I didn't like, it was because it didn't challenge me enough and because the professor didn't make it interesting for me. However, the variety of courses is amazing and I love the amount of extra help that is available, both from professors and from on campus services.

Campus Housing: Almost everyone who goes to Springfield lives on campus. The dorms are old, built in the 1960s, and therefore have few amenities. The only amenities are: free laundry (included in tuition); a lounge on each floor and a main lounge for the entire residence hall; at least one kitchen per residence hall. There are only singles and doubles in all of the residence halls, even the ones with suite-style living. Even though the residence halls all have the same basic setup, so there really is no best/worst option, it just depends on what you want. The main factor for liking or disliking your residence hall is the people who live there and the experiences you have there. The best part of living in a residence hall and living on campus in general is all of the events that happen on campus all the time. In the residence halls, the resident assistants put on programs regularly to get everyone to come together and get to know each other. On campus in general, there are multiple clubs that organize events all the time; guest speakers, food trucks, musical performances, and much more. Overall, living on campus is a great experience that I don't regret, but at the same time, it could be better.

Overall Experience: I would say that I would choose Springfield College again if I had to do everything over. The people here are amazing; the professors want you to succeed, the students are friendly, and I feel welcome on campus. I feel that our school is unique because out of all of the schools I visited, the school philosophy was most important at Springfield. Almost every student knows the humanics philosophy of finding a balance of spirit, mind and body in order to become the best person you can be. Our teachers know about the philosophy, the upperclassmen are passionate about it; it makes the school a better place. The humanics philosophy and all of the amazing experiences I've had a Springfield definitely lead me to come to the concluision that I would choose it again.

Health & Safety: Though it may not be in the safest city, Springfield College does well with public safety and keeping a secure and comforting environment for all students.

5 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I would consider Greek life, however we do not have it on our campus.

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety constantly makes rounds on campus, which is necessary because Springfield is so dangerous.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class size ranges and the professors are usually willing to help you with whatever you need.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since there are less than 3,000 kids, there are always opportunities for jobs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing will determine if you like your first year or not. I live in Massasoit and it is so small and isn't a friendly environment. Gulick is the way to go but it is loud.

Athletics: None of the sports at Springfield are competitive, we lose in almost everything and there aren't fun games to go and watch. Our football field is awful and small. There is no school spirit when it comes to game days.

Overall Experience: World renown for most programs

Health & Safety: Campus is located in the middle of one of the worst neighborhoods of Springfield. Students are consistently being jumped/robbed walking on campus or at off-campus housing. Weapons are generally involved and the campus is not closed.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: Way too many rules/fees/mandatory meetings. Persisting maintenance issues that aren't addresses (malfunctioning elevators, exposed plumbing in bathrooms, etc.). Students tend to be friendly leading to a generally social atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academic experience is phenomenal, among the best in the country. The administration is garbage, clearly demonstrates that the school is nothing more than a business and fails to communicate between administrative departments causing a lot of unnecessary work and confusion on behalf of the student and/or parent. Very small school with too much control over student behavior. Feels like high school all over again except you live on high school campus and thus have to adhere to high school rules 24/7. Great school for professional preparation and resume building, terrible school for a typical "college experience".

3 College Junior

Athletics: D3 sports, however most popular majors are athletically driven/related resulting in most students being athletes or deeply interested in sports.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy most of my classes. Some of the classes I have to take are not that important to my field of study.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We were required to take an online course about safe relationships, sex and alcohol use. It also told student what to do if them or a friend was a victim of sexual assault. There is also security officers around campus especially in parking lots.
