5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far my college experience has been phenomenal. Not only am I on track and doing well academically, but also am achieving many of my dreams. This past year I was selected to participate in a free exchange program with Glasgow Scotland, and was able to travel there for free. This experience taught me the community ideals and cultures of Scotland as well as the differences between European and American academic systems. It was an experience of a life-time.

With help and access from experienced workers finding information has become easier and students are able have a higher success rate in their job search.

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of UMASS Boston. The students take pride in their sports teams, coming to games and showing school spirit by supporting the Beacons Athletics. Not only do they support their peers in competition, the gyms and athletics facilities are filled with students who also enjoy athleticism.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like my school because the environment is great. There is such a diversity of students, which makes it a good place to meet people from all over the world. For the most part, the professors are very kind and willing to help their students succeed. I would definitely choose this school again because I feel like it made the transition from high school to college easier, and I have had many positive experiences.

4 College Senior

Academics: There are great classes in many varieties but sometimes they can be only taken by the students in that program which is sad.

5 College Senior

Diversity: We have people from all around the world and its amazing to see their culture.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: I have never seen anyone ever ale drugs or alcohol on campus.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never heard of any crime on campus. I feel very safe because the students and staff are very nice and there are always officers around. If students are working till late the officers are happy to drop them where they need to be safety. Considering there are no dorms, this is definitely a plus point.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most professors are very knowledgable and caring. They show interest in the student and their career. They try to help them if they have connections with peers who can hire them. There are many varieties of classes offered and the class size varies depending on the subject.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value of this degree is not that worthy because it is so broad. This degree requires a further study in a specialization and till then leaves you hanging wondering what to do and also making it difficult to find a part time job.

4 College Senior

Athletics: There is a bit of athletic spirit but not as much as there would be at a college where there are dorms. Since this is a commuter college no one really gets to interact and meet new people, which prevents them from engaging in such events like sports games and clubs. The athletic facilities are one of the best around because we have equipment for fitness and testing fitness levels that no other college around has.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience was pretty amazing because there is a wide diversity here so I got to explore different cultures. I absolutely love the ocean view I get to see everyday. It reminds me of how beautiful Earth is and it is not worth wasting time on electronics, instead go out and explore! The only thing I would change is I would have dorms to make accommodation easier for students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its just okay ..nothing really special . Normal and average
