College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's not in Sand Diego or NYC so who cares.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't received all scholarships yet

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I haven't attended the school yet

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I haven't started classes yet.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is the same everyday much not variety and not very good. There's one place that tries to cook different home meals everyday but its horrible, they can't even make mac and cheese. Safest thing is Burger King.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are no dorms, only expensive apartments around campus. Not ideal. Because of this there is no campus community.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The online Applied Linguistics program is a LOT of reading and critical thinking, and I love it.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: In my MA program, we read a lot of actual academic articles from journals. The professors are helpful!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm just finishing my 3rd and 4th course in this school, and I'm still enjoying it! My professors have been helpful.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am still in the program, already work full time, and haven't used UMB's career services!

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I filled out my FAFSA and all the documents on UMB online and was given student loans!

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The two closest off-campus housing choices are the apartment complexes. Both are outrageously priced. Have not lived in Peninsula but the apartments are nice looking inside, but expensive. Harbor Point is less expensive but still ridiculous. Hate living here, security is strict and the apartment has had way too many problems which take far too long to deal with.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Don't often eat in off-campus restaurants. Generally eat at home.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration doesn't have any effect on the parties/alcohol/noise, that's all taken care of by the apartment security (very strict assholes). School administration is good.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Hard to find parties, when you do they get busted. The cops who bust them are absolute douches; they take IDs of party-goers, and file reports. (even on first offenses)

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Received a full scholarship for the school for all for years, so long as I sustain the required minimum GPA

College Freshman

Campus Food: Hardly eat on campus. Have eaten in Quinn building, the soups were good.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is no on-campus housing offered at UMass Boston.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Can use a lot of improvement.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is okay, but not very safe nor do I find that the rent is reasonable. It is a ripoff to live where I am living currently.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's a major city so it is pretty good quality/options.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is just okay, not very exciting and usually there are noise complains that lead it to being shut down very early in the night.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid but do not receive any. There are hardly any scholarship opportunities for me, which is not fair/does not make sense because I do not receive any financial support. I need scholarship money.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: it is awful quality food and it is impossible to find healthy food options. Also there are hardly any options and it's always the same old crap for every single meal.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is a commuter school so there is not campus housing, however, most people live in the Harbor Point Apartments across the street from UMass Boston and they are of very poor quality.
