Overall Experience: I loved my time at Suffolk Unviersity. The teachers were so humble and helpful. The teachers don't just teach you straight from the books-- they have real world experience and they taught us what we would deal with everyday in the 'real world'. Suffolk has a beautiful campus, being in the heart of Boston and there is so many community activities you can do. It's a great way to live the small city life and become a part of any club/organization you want.

Overall Experience: I was offered admission to some prestigious schools without any financial assistance. Suffolk offered my acceptance with over 50% covered by scholarship, I am paying my own college bill without assistance from parents or other outside sources. It was challenging to accept at first that I would not be going to a "fancy" institution even though I had been accepted; after making my decision to attend Suffolk I realized that I made the right decision. Every department that I have been in contact with has given me diligent and kind responses. I have spent some time at the library already preparing for my fall classes and I enjoy the set up and functionality. Overall, at first I was upset that I would not being attending a prestigious institution but I have realized that your education is what you make of it, not the institution.

Overall Experience: My school is unique because there is no real campus, as we are located right in the downtown part of Boston. We are submerged in the culture of the city, and we are integrated with all of the other college students in the city. I like this aspect, but I regret not picking a school that had more exciting ways to get involved. Performing arts and student government are the two biggest things, but I am not interested in either. Additionally, I wish I had picked a more credible school. I was mostly concerned with location, and I still am, but my school is not necessarily well-developed in all its programs, or more reputable than other schools in the area.

Overall Experience: I enjoy my studies very much. I look forward to my classes because I enjoy the material being discussed. Suffolk University offers an extraordinary program for legal majors. I was very excited to upon my admittance. I suspect my favorite experiences will be everything I learn in class and the possible competition that will continue to drive and motivate me throughout my time at school.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: No clubs and people arent very accepting. hard to fit in but when you do its fun.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I attend Rivier University and am looking to transfer because it wasn't challenging enough for me and didn't offer the experiences I was looking for.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's a relatively save school, but it's important to be careful and remember that you are in a city and things happen.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Because Suffolk is more of a commuter school living on campus is a great way to make friends. Everyone is pretty friendly, you just have to put yourself out there. I made a lot of great friends in my residence hall, and I did not know many people who lived in the other buildings because to school is so spread out. All of the buildings are a ten minute walk or less from the academic buildings. The RA's aren't very strict on noise in the modern theatre/10 west building, however if you aren't smart about it it is very easy to get caught drinking in the dorms, it's better to save your self the headache and drink elsewhere.

Diversity: Suffolk is a very diverse school with a lot of international students

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are relatively easy but you still learn. All of the professors are great.

Overall Experience: I've had a great experience. It's the friends that make the school worth it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've made a lot of great friends and I love the school

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't really a big part of Suffolk. There's one frat and one sorority. It's a good way to make connections to get invited to parties at other schools, and it is a good way to make friends, but you can make friends by joining any other club as well.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: No one really cares about the sports at Suffolk

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It all depends on what you can afford and where you look. Rent probably won't be any cheaper than 1000 per person a month so it's good to have roommates.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: All of the parties are off campus, there are a lot of house parties in Alston and the Mission Hill area. The good thing is if you're drunk you never have to worry about driving, you can take the t or a uber. Girls can always get into the frat parties at other schools but guys usually have a hard time so it's important to have a good ratio.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You're in a city, you can literally go anywhere at any time to grab something or just have something delivered. No matter what hour you can probably get whatever it is you're craving.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Suffolk can be pretty strict if you aren't smart about it. If you get in trouble you probably won't get kicked out but they'll run your bank account dry in fines. Don't drink in the dorms, it's easy to get caught.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: As a vegetarian my options consisted of cereal, a bagel, grilled cheese, or pizza most of the time at the 150 Tremont dining hall. Occasionally they have tofu but it's gross. Pretty much all of the food is gross. I got the lowest meal plan and still had a lot of money left over, which is bad because you don't get your money back. Sodexo is basically trash. The 73 Tremont cafe is good. The sandwiches and salads are always edible, but it is more expensive and they close early. The cafe in sawyer is average and good for breakfast coffee or snacks.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Suffolk gives out a lot of scholarships. You're still paying a lot to attend the school and for room and board but I had an average gpa in high school and Suffolk covers about half of my tuition

3 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

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

2 College Junior

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

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.
