I really enjoy my time at Suffolk University. Suffolk makes it easy to get involved and most importantly, they are very personable and have a great teacher to student ratio.

The location of my school is among one of the best I’ve ever seen. There is always something happening, so it’s important to constantly check emails and join clubs that are offered. I believe my school opens opportunities for building connections and for landing a great career.

Amazing school; especially with the field of study I want to take. I want to go to Suffolk Law School and become a Double Ram after I earn my bachelors in Government. The school is in the heart of Boston and I couldn't ask for better professors and faculty.
