3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to find a nice apartment in the area that is affordable for a college student.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Have not attended the school yet.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great dining choices in the area.

College Freshman

Administration: Have not attended the university yet.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Suffolk University is very generous with their aid and grants.

College Freshman

Campus Food: This upcoming fall semester will be my first one at Suffolk University. I transferred from Assumption College.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments in Boston are very expensive and the landlords are often not that good.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Haven't really partied much but there are a lot of parties around town, you just have to figure out where they are which can be a little more difficult than on a traditional campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Love the food options in Boston, its usually very easy to find a good place to eat.

3 College Junior

Administration: The campus is very lenient when it comes to the formation of groups, which means that there are almost too many groups (many are redundant).

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It was pretty easy to receive the financial aid I needed, however they are not all that helpful, especially when it comes to looking for scholarships outside the school.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is alright at 73 Tremont. I typically get the salad which costs a little over $6, but its nothing special. Considering the school is in the middle of the city, your probably better off just going to one of the many restaurants located around the school if you have time.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Kind of wish there was more of a campus, which would give me more of a campus/community feel. The location is great however, considering it is right in the middle of the city. The amenities are alright, I especially like the study area on the 9th floor of 73 Tremont.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I cannot comment or rate this because I am a commuter student. But if you are looking for off-campus housing, Suffolk has a department for that.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It all depends on your money situation. But its the CITY, there's all different places to try and explore. There's alot of surrounding restaurants who take your Suffolk Ram card which has some money on.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Suffolk doesn't really have parties in the dorms. More of parties if the students have apartments in the north end and what not. But mostly, you go to the surrounding colleges or Allston/Brighton or local clubs and bars that are around since you are in the city. Everything is right around you, so it's not hard to find something to do at night.

4 College Junior

Administration: I've honestly never really heard about Suffolk being involved with students' social lives as far as intruding. They don't check bags unless they literally hear you say that you have a bottle of whatever in your bag. Academically, nothing has ever happened to me or anyone that I know, so i can not comment on that besides that they don't intrude.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: My only advice is to apply to scholarships because when you apply for a grant, it is absolutely the most aggravating process. But I think finding money is always going to be a hassle no matter what school you are looking at. But every year, I seem to get the money one way or another. The advisers are helpful and tell you what you need to do.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's not the best but it's not the worst either. You can actually see the kitchens and they are pretty clean, which if you when to restaurants where you can't see the kitchen.. for all you know, you could be eating out of the grossest place. Depending on what you decide to eat at Suffolk, depends on if it's gonna be the best or not.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending which dorm you live in, you'll have a different experience because of the location. But Suffolk dorms for the most part are great! I lived in the furthest dorm from the actual class buildings. The only complaint I have would be, it would be more of a social building if there was more common areas. But the building is fairly new, very clean ans spacious. Down the street is another dorm which is considered the most sociable dorm. It's like the type dorm that people see in movies. Very social, big common rooms as well as cafe! Then there is one other dorm which is super convenient because it actually is in the middle of the actual campus. Super close to the class buildings as well as very sociable building and fairly new. But as a whole the Suffolk campus is in the heart of Boston, so the buildings are close to everything.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: lots of apartments near by

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: off campus dining is the best

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: i commute im not the guy to ask

4 College Freshman

Administration: they follow the rules and it pleases me

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Suffolk tries to provide many opportunities so the student body can make the most of their college experience. There is a personal relationship with the school and some of the staff and faculty; however, the main goal of everyone within the institution is to prepare the students for the real world, just like any other college. The personal interest is not always evident, but it's there, especially through most of the professors on campus. Many of Suffolk's programs that students have to apply for—Alternative Spring Break and some programs established in certain majors—make it very much like the real world.

Regardless of how the University handles these programs, it's really up to each student to create his or her own college experience; the more a student hangs around the school and takes advantage of what the school offers, the more he or she will probably get out of college. It doesn't matter where one goes, what makes college worthwhile is what an individual does with the experience and the degree achieved afterward.
